3 - Widespread hospitality: unconventional holiday in Toscolano Maderno
I've finally (almost) made it. It was my big dream: to unite the forces of those who care about the future of Toscolano Maderno by creating the conditions for healthy and lasting development of the area and cutting-edge tourist services.
I say almost because there is still a long way to go, but a foundation stone has been laid. And for this I can only thank the willingness of four truly enlightened colleagues.
This is our diffused hospitality project. Do you know what it is?
It is an original tourist accommodation model, which brings together different accommodation facilities to offer guests a real life experience. For you, who want to spend a holiday on Lake Garda, it means being able to count on all the hotel services - i.e. reception, assistance, catering, services - multiplied by five: each one of us will be at your disposal to give you the best Toscolano has to offer and you will be able to enjoy it in complete freedom and at advantageous prices.
In short: we work together to make your stay unforgettable.
A tourist philosophy
We are the owners of five different types of accommodation, each with its own particular characteristics: my Residence Virgilio, which has one of the most spectacular views of Lake Garda; the Garden Residenza Hotel, a hotel for people with disabilities; the Hotel Sorriso, a family hotel near the beach; the B&B Nido dei Gufi in the historic centre and the Hotel Maderno, for a Belle Epoque stay.
We are a close-knit, cohesive group because the five of us do not just want to be hoteliers, but creators of events, experiences, flavours and services.
Above all, we want to share our history and that of our territory with our guests, convinced that travelling should be an experience that enriches people, bringing them into contact with one another, and generating sensations and emotions.
We like authenticity and want to highlight our historical, cultural, environmental, food and wine roots, as we have a deep knowledge of our territory and its hidden beauties. We will take you on a discovery of realities that you won't find in tourist guides.
But there is more. Widespread hospitality is a formidable tool for enhancing the value of local businesses and letting our guests discover them, something that rarely happens in traditional hotel structures. From this point of view, ours is an extraordinary tourist offer.
The advantages for you
Working together as tour operators means we can respond more quickly and efficiently to the needs of travellers, whether they are passing through or resident: if one establishment cannot meet your requirements, the other will.
By joining forces we can guarantee you:
- the BeSafe Rate, the guarantee that secures your holiday if for some reason you are unable to leave;
- advantageous rates
- exclusive promotions
- packages at favourable prices from our partners (boat hire, bike hire, tourist services, excursions, trips, restaurants)
- conventions for fairs and events.
And all this even (above all) in the low season, not only because we think that our area is at its best in spring and winter, but because we want to encourage slow tourism, a more sustainable tourism, more respectful of the environment and of local cultures and which also allows you to enjoy a real holiday, made up of relaxation, tranquillity and exciting discoveries.
With Toscolano in the heart
I don't know about you, but I'm really excited: this way of doing hospitality is exactly what inspired me to do this job.
But sharing, welcoming, the pleasure of hosting, the desire to transmit the love I have for these places go hand in hand with an ambition: that of giving Toscolano Maderno back its rightful place among the tourist resorts of Lake Garda, overcoming parochial divisions, taking care of the territory, opposing uncontrolled exploitation and working towards healthy, lasting development.
If you are a curious person, who travels not only for leisure but also to learn, who chooses to make a contribution to a higher cause, then our hospitality is the right thing for you.
We look forward to seeing you in Toscolano Maderno for your next holiday.
