Valeria was born in 1966 and has an important experience of 20 years in fashion business and public relationships. Using the knowledge of languages and her strong and creative personality, she follows an interesting path in the new lines of fashion-business, during the 90’s. She works for Costume National, Prada, Dries Van Noten, Paul Smith, in partnership with commerce and selling departments and with press
management and organization of fashion-shows. She understands that the beauty comes from proportions, balances, shadings and respect for the nature of every place, material and colour. She uses these precious knowledge for the cure and the atmosphere of the places that she is going to create. With the experience and the practical sense of his husband Daniele, she creates cosy and unique places, starting with the little Bar Davi of Monterosso and reaching the top with the magic and fascinating world of Palazzo Franchi Bardavi. A half of her blood is from Arielli and so the call of good ancient things brings her from the luxury of Paris runways to the suburb of “Cinque terre”, finding her final destination in the land of her forefathers.
Daniele was born in 1956 in Milan and enters in the successful teams of private radios of Milan when he is very young. Smart and brilliant, he works for famous clubs and in fashion business.
But the city is not enough for him…his ligurian soul brings him to the beautiful sea of Monterosso, Cinque Terre, at the age of 27. Here, he opens several clubs with great success and, while Monterosso is becoming a touristic destination, he renews himself and his style in every club he opens: La Fontana, Al Casello, obtained from a signalman’s house by the sea. This will be his best “creation”, the one wich gives him fame and success and wich he runs for 12 years. Bar Davi, the best one in the production of refined aperitifs and special breakfasts. Bar Davi will be present in the most important foreign touristic guides.
Valeria Franchi purchased this villa in 2008
First of all for the link with Valeria's family roots,but especially because Valeria and Daniele after their strong experience with international tourism do believe that Abruzzo has so much to offer and is really unique in the Italian Panorama. Arielli then has a strategical position: You can refresh in the Mountains in the morning and easily dive in the Sea in the afternoon, but enjoy a countryside feeling during your stay in the Villa without ever feeling isolated. Moreover, the historical value of the building and the stunning views give the property a priceless and remarkable value. Italy is not only Tuscany. Abruzzo can provide excellent food, oil, wine, history, hicking and swimming with the twist of exploring an area which is still genuine and fool of real italian tradition.
Landscape, strategic position, antique building value, refined design, avant-garde equipments and tecnological systems, high quality supplies and facilities. Brand new and never rented before.
A little bit difficult to find, but once you arrive, everything is "tutto va bene". Terrific rooftop patio overlooking vineyards with mountains and the Adriatic in the distance. It was a little cool outside, so we did appreciate the heated floors and the working fireplace! Everything works, nice kitchen, nice bathrooms.
Great restaurants in Ortona (Trattoria San Domenico, close to the big castle in Ortona) nice pizza place about 5 minutes away.
The only negative thing would be: the owners seem to have cats, so beware if you are allergic!
In summer the one day trip to Isole tremiti is very recomended.
Crecchio at 2 km has a Castle to be visited.
Lanciano at 9 km is a beautiful antique little town to be visited with churches, restaurants and shopping.
Eat on a Trabocco in summer and consult the guide at the house to check all the activities possible
