The Arthouse is a magical container of creative outpourings and spiritual transformation
in the heart of an Italian medieval quarter – a town currently experiencing a dynamic cultural renaissance.
It’s also a registered B&B and I occasionally rent the rooms out via AIRBNB
I was led by a series of coincidences and dreams, to buy this incredible set of atmospheric rooms in early 2011; I was the first straniera who came to the centro storico – and became the protagonista in a cultural rejuvination which is growing and growing still…
But when I bought it (for 10K euros), the house had been abandoned for over 16yrs, and needed some dusting! I restored the house on a mostly-non-existent budget, with my own hands, learning about cementing and stuccoing as I went.
Throughout the process, I learned the language, and established a career as an artist, and became an integral part of the Guardia Sanframondi community. And so I healed and transformed, building a success creative life for myself, with the Arthouse as alchemising vessel: I’ve created a huge body of artwork and photography; entertained and taught; established shops and events; created installations and sacred meetings.
The house is a truly magical haven to work and play, rest and realign in: guests often leave super-inspired, and ready to follow their dreams with new enthusiasm.
My guests love sharing the experience of this working artist’s house and this up-and-coming zone. I’ve been honoured with visits by visionaries, poets, musicians, writers and artists, dreamers and adventurers, entrepreneurs, and those seeking personal growth.
As a B&B, I’ve had consistently glowing reviews, 5 stars and 100% feedback from my happy guests. Plus I’ve hosted masterminding and inspirational weekends, pop-up shops and galleries, art installations and meetings.
The Arthouse is pretty famous now, through various TV appearances, both House Hunters International and Where Are They Now follow-up episodes, and with local and national TV, radio and internet in Italy.
…and the house has been featured on numerous blogs and websites
…and some fabulous photoshoots have been set here.
