Our history and our philosophy
my name is Francesco, I am 34 years old and I am a lawyer and manager of Villagraziosa together with my mother Antonella. A few years ago I decided to quit the legal activity to dedicate myself to what I love the most and which makes me feel truly satisfied, hospitality. A bit by character and a little bit thanks to my parents who used to organize parties for friends and family, I have always loved conviviality and hospitality.
Villagraziosa is the house where I was born and grown up. My father, Michele, imagined and built it together with my mother; she gave her that touch of elegance and design that sets her apart.
In Villagraziosa are set all the most beautiful memories of my childhood: playing in the pool, Christmase with the whole family, my father who teaches me how to make pizzas, late summer parties…
After a 15-year career in Rome, I decided to go back to my origins and dedicate myself to tourism and hospitality to recreate that atmosphere that I loved so much about Villagraziosa and offer it to all the tourists who visit our beauties. I renovated the villa, started the business and today I welcome people from all over the world. With them I love to share and learn about the uses and customs of our different cultures. I am a present host, never intrusive and I do everything to make my guests feel at home.
I love cooking and making pizzas at home, so I am available to cook for guests both dinners with typical local dishes and pizzas directly in the villa. And not only that, I organize every kind of experiences excursions, food and wine experiences, I suggest and book good restaurants, in short, I try to accompany guests during their journey trying to make them live a truly genuine italian experience with discretion and respect.
What to say more? I’m waiting for you
