Hoteliers through 5 generations
100 Years of History and Tradition
The tradition began in the early 20th century, when Assunta, Enrico’s great-aunt, was managing the Trattoria Roma, famous for its pasta with Meat sauce and the classic Roast. As fate had it, she adopted the daughter of her sister, who died prematurely. Her name was Teresa Quartino nicknamed Grandma Dede, who inherited the art of cooking from her aunt and opened Restaurant Italia.
Together with her husband, she bought the apartments above the restaurant which became renting rooms. She had 3 children, one of them, Grandma Rosa, Enrico’s mother, built the Hotel Corallo.
In 1963, Enrico continued the family tradition by taking over the management of the Hotel Villa Chiara and in 1970 the Hotel Garden, which was just a small annexe.
In 1994, thanks to a great business vision, Enrico and Luccia his wife built the Hotel Garden, demolishing the existing structure and building 4 floors, 51 rooms and 8 apartments, co-managed with his 2 beautiful daughters, Paola and Roberta. The hotel celebrates its first 20 years in 2014.
