Interview By:

— What was your inspiration to open a small boutique hotel?

Cristina: “I used to work in tourism and about 10 years ago I decided that I wanted to change my life. My boyfriend and I were in Milan at that time and spent a holiday in Noto, my childhood home in Sicily. It was my dream to find a little place and run a small hotel.”

— What would you describe to be your philosophy at Seven Rooms Villadorata?

Cristina: “I wanted to create a home for our guests, so the personal welcome and the personal contact with the guests is very important to me. I am usually around in the morning during breakfast and in the afternoon to help with restaurant suggestions, things to do and any other questions they may have.

Also very important to me is quality – the quality of the food we serve, the quality of our furnishings and fabrics, our suggestions and recommendations. Quality is always my priority. We offer our guests a high-caliber service comparable to the large luxury hotels, while remaining intimate and welcoming as only a small family hotel can be.”

— Please tell us a bit about the history of the house.

Cristina: “The Nicolaci di Villadorata family was one of the noble families of ancient Noto and the apartment which is now Seven Rooms Villadorata used to be Prince Giacomo Nicolaci’s private residence. We bought the residence in 2007 with the aim of restoring the French style and flavour that inspired its creation.”

— Please tell us a bit about the rooms at Seven Rooms Villadorata.

Cristina: “We have four superior rooms and 2 standard rooms at Seven Rooms Villadorata, the seventh is for my family and friends. The superior rooms are very impressive because of their 6 metre ceilings and a few of them still have the original frescos. But my favourite is room ‘Borea’, a standard room. I love the soothing colours and the atmosphere of the room – it is very comfortable and intimate and not as big as our superior rooms. For all of our rooms we selected the most exclusive Italian and French linens and furnishings in order to make each room not only luxurious and comfortable, but also one-of-a-kind.”

Cristina: “No, our guests often ask for the ‘Austro’ room, the old bedroom of the Prince!”

— Please tell us a bit more about the hotel and the facilities.

Cristina: “Besides our beautiful rooms, we have a reception area and a huge terrace with the best views of Noto. It is the terrace of my private apartment and I share it with our guests for breakfast.

For our breakfast we serve local products – fresh yogurt from a local farmer, home made jam and Sicilian cheese. We strongly believe in the 0 km philosophy.”
