Hey from Giovanna

Member since June 2018 | 11,268 hits
Goodmorning everyone! I'm here to introduce you to my B&B TANGRAM.

It was created in the apartment where my father Enzo Maiolino lived for most of his life. Since he left us in November 2016, his legacy as a painter, engraver, writer, archivist and man of great culture and wonderful empathy, has led me to the idea of creating a structure that reflects his way of seeing and share art. The magical atmosphere that was perceived in his house was what I wanted to remain, as much as possible unchanged, even now that he has left us.

Hence the thought of restructuring his apartment, creating a receptive structure that would allow guests to find an oasis of tranquility, peace, and culture in the name of Tangram, an ancient oriental game that had fascinated him to such an extent of great inspiration in the last years of his work as a painter and engraver.

Anyone of you who wants to be our guest can perceive, through the shelves full of books of all kinds and the paintings hanging on the walls, the life of a great-little man who lived for art, for literature, poetry and teaching, his great openness towards anyone who showed curiosity, interest or needed help to deepen unexplored but fascinating fields of art or the history of the place. With his simple, cordial and quiet speech, he never tired of welcoming old friends and new young researchers, to share and pass on his knowledge.

Why not be forgotten..and why, at the same time, do not forget the enormous work and sacrifice of my maternal grandparents to whom we owe the construction of the house, in the years of the Second World War.

I, Giovanna, daughter of Enzo, will try to welcome you as he would have done, with a smile, and the availability that distinguishes us, open to all your requests and, why not, criticism.

Giovanna's house has the flavor and soul of Bordighera and reflects the value of its history. The welcome is more than perfect, like all the spaces available to guests, living room/library and kitchen to then enjoy a very peaceful and wonderful large garden. Truly a charming house.

We had a great time. The house is a stone's throw from the beach and the center, it is beautiful and comfortable, the garden is splendid and very fragrant. Very comfortable bed, impeccable cleanliness, amazing breakfast, all made by the owner Giovanna, from the cake to the bread, to the delicious tangerine jam (from the garden). Giovanna is also very nice and helpful, we will definitely come back.

Ho soggiornato con mia figlia e mio nipote. Giovanna è una persona davvero splendida, ti accoglie come ti conoscesse da sempre, ti accontenta nelle tue esigenze e ti coccola con le sue ottime torte. Quando si entra in casa si respira aria di famiglia. Quando tornerò, sicuramente soggiornerò qui. Lo consiglio vivamente!

A charming property with a very kind and helpful host. The home is filled with the art & books of the host's father, an acclaimed artist, which gives it a peaceful and aesthetically pleasing quality. There's a lovely garden behind the house that our room opened onto directly where we ate meals. The location is very convenient to the station, the palace of the Regina Margherita, the beach, and other spots. Unfortunately a virus I had been fighting for days caught up with me while I was there, but the ambience of peaceful quiet was very restful as I recovered. Breakfasts included homemade pastries and homemade jams from fruit grown in the garden.

Giovanna e suo marito sono stati estremamente disponibili. La casa è accogliente e caratteristica, essendo stata la dimora di un artista, la camera comoda e il bagno ottimo. Non manca nulla. La posizione, vicinissima al mare, è perfetta se non si vuole muovere la macchina. I paraggi offrono tantissimi spunti per la visita, ma noi desideravamo riposare e ci siamo godute mare e comoditá.

Siamo stati solo una notte al B&B Tangram, ma ci siamo trovati molto bene! Posizione ottima, sulla strada principale quindi comodo ai servizi, al mare e al borgo alto. Allo stesso tempo, la casa dà anche su una stradina chiusa e quindi risulta essere molto silenziosa come location. La signora Giovanna, molto accogliente, è stata disponibile nel comunicare con noi prima dell'arrivo e ci ha dato indicazioni su cosa vedere e fare a Bordighera. L'unica pecca il parcheggio, ma del resto è così in tutta la Liguria.. ma con un po' di buona volontà si trova!
