If you are reading this page, you don’t settle for common tips: you look for travel professionals and experts of the Italian hospitality. You’ve got them.

The Atzeri Family, active in the travel industry since 1975, selects only the best of the “Made in Italyhospitality. They constantly search for exclusive accommodations, where charm does not necessary means opulence.

The accommodations we choose have something in common: they are a special gateway to the destination, which make you experience the best of the Made in Italy: food and wine, design, traditions, fashion and lifestyle.

Each hotel, each resort, each small guesthouse has been chosen for two precise reasons: they represent a true piece of Italy. They give you the keys to enter and to discover it firsthand.

Experience the Italian hospitality. This is what we are proud to offer, through attentive screenings and quality controls made personally by the members of the family and the trusted staff.

Good taste, small details, uniqueness.

This is what makes the difference.

 

The Project
Quality, professionalism and a deep knowledge of the Italian regions have always been our leitmotif.

With CharmingSardinia.com, CharmingPuglia.com, CharmingCampania.com, CharmingSicily.com and CharmingTuscany.com we have gained the esteem and the trust for those looking for unforgettable luxury and charming holiday.

Now, there is something more.

There is something new every day…

Let us guide you throughout the true Italy. Let the experts of the Italian hospitality suggest you not only the best Hotels but also how to experience the beauty, passion and lifestyle of the whole Italy.
 

Hospitality
It is true that Italy is one of the most dreamed-of locations for travellers and holiday-makers. But what is it, that really makes the difference during your stay in Italy? The chance to experience the authentic “Made in Italy”, not a surrogate of its cuisine and fashion or artificial warmth and hospitality.

This is the reason why CharmingItaly.com selects both, boutique hotels and resorts, as well as hidden gems and well-known hotel chains; but all accommodations must have some essential points in common:

- Modern Italian luxury furniture and a homely touch
- They must be leisure service oriented but include modern technology facilities

Therefore, let's have a look at what makes a hotel worthy of being chosen by Charming:
1. High standards of quality
2. Warm and personalized services
3. Classical Italian elegance, a minimalistic design or modern furniture – but never an excessive, pompous or cold-hearted style
4. Unique and amazing landscapes
5. Strategic and exclusive hotel’s locations that are far from the noisy city centre, however with the main sights of the area always at reach
6. Slow food, local products and master chefs
7. Wi-Fi throughout the hotel and various other docking stations
8. If this is still not enough, log in and discover the CharmingItaly Hotels yourself.
