What does an international hospitality executive do when he’s sick of his big time worldwide job? Downshift to Tuscany.......of course! My name is Dario Cecchini.
After more than twenty years of accommodating guests and VIPS around the world,
I decided to change my life.....and together with my american wife Marie Claire,
who is an English teacher, I spent five years searching, researching and renovating two properties we fell in love with: Villa Cecchini, a self catering villa rental and San Gennaro Castello, an intimate eco-friendly bed & breakfast filled with memorabilia donated by celebrities met during my career. We love to travel, have been all over the world, and we love intimate hotels with character, personality and a sense of place. We wanted to create beautiful, comfortable retreats, with modern comforts and a relaxed atmosphere, where our friends, and friends of friends, from all over the world could come to relax, taste local wines, cook great dinners and tour Tuscany.
