We are natives of Italy.
We married in 1995 and since, travelled to the US almost every year.
Our very first trip to Arizona in 1996, made us fall in love with its stunning landscape. Instantly we felt great respect for the American way of life. The more we travelled throughout the country, the more we felt at home. We discovered our love for the American B&B's and soon it became for us the only way to travel throughout this gorgeous country. Great service and atmosphere, tasteful intimate accommodation, meeting interesting people and wonderful food. What an experience!
Once back in Rome, we made up our minds, we wanted to move to the US and fulfill our dream, by owning our own B&B.
The decision was taken on our first trip to New England in 2003. We soon understood why Maine's motto is "Vacationland" and we immediately felt that this was the country and the place where we wanted to live and settle down.
Roberta, born in Milan, the north of Italy
Claudio, born in Taranto, the south of Italy
Guess where we met and lived? Rome, right in the center of Italy!
Roberta graduated with Honors from the prestigious German School in Milan and moved to Rome 20 years ago. For many years she forged an excellent career in the Insurance business, then moved into real estate management. She is fluent in English, German and, of course, Italian. Roberta displays her great taste in interior design, through detailing and being a wonderful host, be it friends, business associates and/or guests. She is a passionate gardener.
Claudio moved to Rome as a little child. A young man, him and his best friend started a publishing company. Together they edited the Italian Hotel Directory, a prestigious guide of over 34,000 hotels, which became highly regarded throughout of Europe. Having sold the business, to the Italian Yellow Pages, Claudio moved to Florence as executive manager for a company involved in the distribution of communications support material, first in Italy, a company that supplied all major Italian brands. The company was successfully sold, through Claudio and his associates, to an American company. He is fluent in English, Spanish and (of course again) Italian and has a small knowledge of French. Claudio loves music. His hobbies are soccer (like any Italian man!) and travel.
