We are a young couple, Alberto and Giulia, living in Santarcangelo di Romagna.
We met in 2013 while studying in Spain during our Erasmus adventure. One of the things we love the most is travelling, discovering new cities and meeting new people. We had a dream of creating a nice place that could represent a melting-pot of people coming from different places and having their own background and personal story to share with us. It is from this idea that in autumn 2015 we started thinking about the idea of creating a B&B. And, here we are. “Il Vicoletto”, this is the name of our B&B, was born out of our love story, out of an encounter between Romagna (Alberto) and Tuscany (Giulia).
“Il Vicoletto” represents for us a welcoming gathering spot for all those people who want to visit Santarcangelo di Romagna. It has been totally renewed in 2016 according to the eco-save-related new regulations. The result has been a restful and warm B&B. The natural colors of the walls and the particular furniture we have chosen item by item aim at recalling our hinterland, La Valmarecchia.
“Il Vicoletto” is the first B&B situated in the Ganganelli square in Santarcangelo di Romagna where a triumphal Arch was built in honor of the Pope Clemente XVI. More exactly, our B&B is located in Via Vicolo del Forno an historical and suggestive street that connects the square to the vibrant cultural and social life of Santarcangelo. The building, which hosts “il Vicoletto”, is dated back to the first decades of the 19th century where Alberto’s great-grandfathers lived and run a bakery. This bakery has been from the 1870 to the last years of the 20th century one of the most important bakeries of the city.
The symbol of our B&B is the sheaf of wheat because wheat is necessary to knead the dough every day. Barley (ORZO), Spelt (FARRO) and Oat (AVENA) is how we have called our three rooms. At the same time, they symbolize the three cereals we use every day for baking bread and cakes that we serve during breakfast. The terms Granary (Il Granaio) is usually the place where cereals are set down after threshing and that we have used to call our breakfast room. The design of this room with its color, light and furniture is perfectly linked to the sophisticated interior decorating of the other rooms.
