How would you describe Caldaro Apartment in a nutshell?
Caldaro Apartment is a 3-bedroom 3-bathroom holiday apartment housed in a renovated 17th-century building right in the historic and picturesque centre of Caldaro. It’s a space designed to bring people together, make them share moments around the kitchen table and experience the area like a local.
What is the story behind Caldaro Apartment, what was your inspiration to create it?
When we decided to move from London to South Tyrol, where Daniel grew up, we fell in love with the building which is from the early 17th century and later used to belong to Daniel’s grandmother.
Daniel's parents had taken care of the building over the years and meticulously renovated it while preserving its originality. Because of our own love for traveling and discovering authentic places, as well as Myrtianna's passion for creating unique experiences, we decided to completely renovate the interior and open the house to guests, so they too could witness what we saw.
The apartment is a journey through past, present, and future. Its 400-years-old walls have witnessed unique life stories: friendships, cosy family dinners, love stories and many more meaningful shared moments. Moments that shape us, that stay in our memories and follow us forever.
We want our guests to experience this precious sense of sharing, feel at home, build their own memories with their loved ones, and leave, in this way, their own little mark.
How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of the apartment?
Since it is a historic building under protection, architectonic interventions have been kept to the minimum and in perfect harmony with the building’s original form.
Custom wooden furniture made by local craftsmen has been mixed with carefully selected design items, some designed by Daniel's studio, others by other respected designers. Natural materials, raw finishes and neutral hues create the perfect backdrop for a soothing and relaxing stay.
To you personally, what is so special about the apartment?
The way old and new coexist. You breathe history while still living in the present. It’s about bringing a bit of the region’s culture and craftsmanship into your everyday life by blending South Tyrolian elements, Italian architecture and contemporary design.
