  • Description


    Hi everybody:-)
    I'm Michela, I'm 31 years old, and I'm managing the family's hotel in Malcesine, in the north of Garda lake.
    It was built in the 70’s by my grandfather Aldo, who dedicated the name of the building to my grandmother, Bianca.
    Since 2016, after many years away, I decided to come back here, unable to stay away from the magnificent nature in which Malcesine is surrounded, and also willing to come back to those magic/enchanting/charming places of my childhood.
    Studying at university I had a chance to travel around the world, learning to appreciate what we sometimes take for granted, and this makes me realize how wonderful my land is.
    Hospitality and conviviality have become key parts of my being, thanks to my previous working career, and so I’ll be happy to host you and make you feel like at home.

  • Help


    I need someone to help me with tourist's welcoming and reception.
    Most of the guests are from Germany, and my German is not so good, so I'm looking for a German speaking Workawayer and possibly someone that wants to share language practice : I'll be glad to help him/her with Italian (language and cooking!).
    I need also some help with the garden and with my little vegetable garden, and with the hotel maintenance.
