We have created Hote Italia in order to share our passion for Italy. We travel together through the regions of central and southern Italy to find authentic and charming places (hotels, guest houses and agriturismo), meet owners who wanted to enhance their cultural heritage, discover the traditions and culinary specialties of each region.

Massimiliano Lombardi

He is Italian. He was born in Salerno, Campania. After his studies, he decides to leave his beautiful region to explore other horizons: Paris, London...

The distance allows him to appreciate more his country, his culture, his gastronomy and he wonders how he could enhance the heritage of his region.

Blandine Watrelot

She is French. She is born in in the North of France. As soon as she finished her studies, she decided to leave her hometown to stand on her own two feet and left to work in London where they meet.

He introduced her to Southern Italy and she succumbed to the charm of its enchanting landscapes, the richness of its historical and cultural heritage, the excellence of its cuisine and the hospitality of its inhabitants.
