This web of threads accompanies us on a seamless journey through the various rooms, full of objects that testify to the great skill of the masters of the time. Everything here is handmade including the furnishings made by skilled craftsmen.

The Cafe was created to offer a corner of taste to the guests of the rooms and of the city. From breakfast to the evening aperitif you will find local products to discover the local food and wine. Throughout the cafe and rooms, the Load Chairs and Load Bar Stools by Billiani are perfectly in tune with the weaved concept.
