Quintalone is an atypical place, loved by all, I want you to discover it.
About me, I always loved the Art in general and the painting in particular, a priori nothing to see with my wish to cater travellers, although... after all I managed to reconcile the two things.
Create a convivial place with a holiday spirit, with great art pieces.
Quintalone being a timeless place, it was impossible for me to create a place without soul.
I should to talk you about me, about my desires, about my tastes, but I am inexorably linked to this place, and I always come back.
I could say that ma second passion is to travel around the word, Asia, Europe, America... Every new encounter is a source of inspiration and I never get tired of this!
And of course my family who is my support, that gives me the force to be what I am.
In few words, I exist thanks to the others and I love to be feeded from the encounters, share travel experiences. This may explain my wish to cater you in this place that I love so much. Then take your bags and see you soon!!!
