Since 1999 we certify the Quality of the historical luxury hotels

Over the last 19 years we protected the high quality tourism in Italy certifying standards of excellence of the historic houses and the historical luxury hotels. With an extremely rigorous testing protocol, each year only 20% of historic houses candidate failing to pass our stringent quality control filters, necessary to obtain the Certificate of Quality.

Only top level castles and historic houses for top level guests

Residenze d'Epoca is the first choice of top-level clients, connoisseurs able to appreciate the charm, the uniqueness and the value of the historic houses, people with an excellent culture and a strong sense of beauty that for their memorable moments - whether it's a romantic, intimate and exclusive stay or a high-level wedding - they are keen on the best and are not willing to settle for a 'second choice' or an anonymous or low-level structure.

The Certificate of Excellence of Residenze d'Epoca has been awarded annually since 1999 only to the villas, castles and historic houses that have been able to demonstrate that they meet the necessary requirements for holding the delicate role of first-class Italian hospitality ambassador.
