Donatella and Mauro have been welcoming guests to the Rocca residential hotel since 1998. The colour-themed apartments are a reflection of the hosts’ appreciation of the natural world, and their desire to offer family-friendly hospitality.
2002 saw the addition of apartments inspired by the four elements, together with the relaxation area and sensory pool. Our motto is “Time Regained”, inviting guests to take back control of their body and mind, and to do so in their own time.
Our daughter Elena was born in 2004, providing the inspiration for new spaces dedicated to children and play.
In 2008 Mauro began designing his celebrated “game maps”, suggestions for exploring the local area presented in the form of games.
Mauro is also a creative up-cycler, taking used objects apart and recycling them into new, unexpected forms and functions.
We have now become at one with this place, far from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The beauty of the Trasimeno countryside needs no embellishment: hear the song of the wind through the trees, the gentle tapping of the woodpecker diligently sculpting its nest in the trunk of a tree, the buzzing of the bees lost in a heady pollen whirlwind… Enjoy your breakfast while dreamily taking in the infinite shades of green conjured by the calm waters of the lake and the surrounding hills and fields, and laze by the pool while leafing languidly through your favourite book.
