Suvereto meets Airbnb hosts

The third meeting of the Airbnb Hosts of the Etruscan Coast took place in Suvereto on Saturday 27 May.

Hosted in the beautiful Cloister of San Francesco, in the heart of the medieval village of Suvereto, it was an honor for Valeria and I to organize the third Airbnb host meet-up right in ‘my’ adopted country. With the precious support of the Mayor, Jessica Pasquini, and the Deputy Mayor, Caterina Magnani, we had the opportunity to be updated on the latest developments related to the village of Suvereto and beyond. From mobility to the plan to develop the city as a destination wedding, the importance of services for citizens and children…there are many innovations that will be implemented in the coming years and that will involve the village.

Since the theme of the meeting was obviously tourism and hospitality, many reflections were dedicated to the value of hospitality, of telling the story of the territory, of being us hosts first bearers of a broad and sustainable vision linked to tourism. Avoid increasing the ‘hit and run’ in favor of a more authentic link with the local artisan realities and with the producers.

Even the new phenomenon of ‘digital nomads’ could relaunch the area by offering a different and more fresh image of the lifestyle that a small reality can offer. To increase it, it is necessary for all local administrations to invest in the development of optimal network coverage, dialoguing at all levels with interlocutors, including national ones, to try to obtain visibility. And here the story, the circularity of information, returns to have a central role to encourage the development of a community that recognizes itself in a set of values, beyond parochialism and events created only to ‘showcase’, without a real long-term vision.

This open, sustainable and slow vision of tourism is also my first and most important mission, which I try to feed through the Piccole Guide project and through the story of the area and the local realities that you can find in these articles. It is obviously all the result of my personal vision of the area, but this is what my guests generally appreciate. The story, the hospitality, the care.

All the hosts present at the meeting brought their experience and their contribution and we all agreed to promote conscious tourism through our business, even beyond the sea and what ‘naturally’ constitutes the first attraction for tourism in the different realities of the Etruscan Coast.

At the end of the meeting we had the pleasure of having an aperitif all together at the Le Carceri village wine shop in a beautiful and timeless setting. We’ll be able to dedicate a blogpost to this place too, in the meantime I’ll leave you some photos!

For those wishing to learn more, here you will find the story of our first Meet-up, held at the La Gualda Vecchia farm, while here you will find the story of the second Meet-up, held at Tenuta la Valle, on the theme of Sustainability. Even the newspaper Il Tirreno dedicated an article to us!
