In 1880, one woman dreamt of a perfect lakeside retreat above the bustle of Bellagio.
Since then, five generations of mother and daughter have – with determination and love – perfected, protected and passed down this dream.
Their lives’ work is now my life: the Belvedere Hotel.
I wake to see my grandmother picking flowers in the garden to adorn the hotel. I hear the musical sound of my mother welcoming visitors as if they were family. In the grounds where I played as a child, I catch the scent of the herbs that will be gathered to flavour tonight’s home-cooked menu.
This is my world, my passion, and my family’s paradise.
