I’m Antonella, I’m an architect and I deeply love my country.
I deal with local tourism development and integrated architecture. I like oil and watercolor painting , I like writing poems and travel diaries. The desire to find myself in the union of duality between the beautiful city of Palermo where I was born and the small mountain village of Petralia Soprana where I work and take refuge, combined with intense experiences as a "traveler" in search of a direct relationship with nature and with the local identities, this lead me to a change for the better and to start a new business and life journey, turning into a B & B a family house.
Slowing the pace of life, looking at each detail with new eyes, just like a painter does. These intense feelings, combined with the warmth of hospitality, is what I want to convey to my guests, giving them the possibility to book a room for a holiday and live the new journey experience just feeling like at home.
