CasaCau is a townhouse with six vacation apartments in central Rome. Right by Fontana di Trevi, these apartment rentals are a home-away-from-home in the buzzing city centre.
How would you describe Antonello Colonna Resort in a nutshell?
Antonello Colonna Resort is a small boutique hotel with 12 rooms very close to Rome in Lazio, Italy. The resort is like a private house with great food and hospitality where guests can feel at home. I am a chef and I always wanted to create a hotel where food and hospitality are at the centre of everything. And it’s one of the best in Italy at that, I think.
Part of your hotel you are also using as a gallery?
We often have exhibitions connected to the design or the concept of the hotel, including photography or paintings. For example, we sometimes partner with the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome, Macro, or with the Venice Biennale, which we also sponsor.
What has been the biggest reward for you running a restaurant and a small hotel?
The main thing is that my idea of this resort is finally taking hold. It’s like a childhood dream coming true. It combines all the things I enjoyed in my travels in my own place.
