“We like to think that LAQUA RESORTS is the result of many years of sacrifice, dedication and love for hospitality and welcoming, in terms of service, gastronomy and relationships with our guests – say Cinzia and Antonino – After celebrating our 20th anniversary at Relais Villa Crespi, we thought we would create new intimate points of reference in Italy for hospitality. And we have remained faithful to our origins, Piedmont and Campania, and to hospitality made up of small but great places where you can find joy and life”.
