We would like to share with you 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 farmhouses), meet owners of accommodations that work for the preservation and restoration of their architectural and cultural heritage, which favours small local producers and which act for the protection of the environment. Our agency is the result of a collaboration between a Frenchwoman from northern France , Blandine Watrelot, and an Italian from southern Italy, Massimiliano Lombardi.
A authentic hospitality
We do not appreciate the overrated hospitality created ad hoc for travellers as it would not allow to appreciate the real beauty of a place. If you are fascinated as we are by the charm of old stones and period homes. If you think culture, know-how and traditions are vital. If you can fully appreciate the effort and involvement of each of our partners to bring their masseria, castle or palazzo back to life. Then you will enjoy a stay in our accommodations
A sustainable and responsible tourism
Hote-Italia is an independent agency that works for sustainable and responsible tourism in Italy by favouring slow tourism in historic residences renovated with respect for tradition. We are convinced that a sustainable tourism and a slow living is the wave of the future
