About us

“One of my favourite books is “The Road” by Cormac McCarthy. It’s the story of a journey to discover people rather that places. I’ve always based my career, my hobbies and my travels on this concept. This is also how I face the day at Stile Libero: I welcome guests with curiosity, ready to listen to their needs”. (Guido)

“I’ve studied and also worked abroad and in Italy, I welcomed many people in Reception of luxury Hotels. Now I’m here in Stile Libero, the best decision I could make, my family business, the best ever! I deal with reservations, welcoming, breakfast with enthusiasm and always smiling”. (Francesca)

“My students say I’m a demanding but also an understanding teacher. It’s true. I like rules and accuracy but I apply everything with sensitivity. I am attentive and astute even at Stile Libero, in everything from breakfast to the furnishings, the right words at the right time or silence”. (Laura)

“Sometimes I’m here too. I live in the present to build my future. If you meet me in Stile Libero, it’s not just to help my parents but to know people, speak other languages, discover new experiences”. (Alessandro)

The history and the project

Stile Libero is adjacent to a small eighteenth century villa formerly owned by a noble family in Bergamo, Earl Benaglio, who used it as their country home to manage their lands and fields. The manor homes in Orio al Serio were built around the church and center of the town. Various changes of hand and renovations during the 1800s and early 1900s, with the construction of adjacent buildings, distorted the original traits of this prestigious residence until 2010 when the current owners, Laura and Guido, launched a building recovery plan with the conservative renovation of the original 18th century part and the harmonic reconstruction of the adjacent buildings.

Under the attentive direction of Studio Peretti (architecture and engineering) www.studioperetti.it and Chiappa-Didonè renovators, stylishly renovated to include the interior frescoes, the Stile Libero building now stands next to the manor house. Designed with “small hotel” logic, it overlooks the same internal courtyard as the period residence. During renovations special attention was paid to energy savings, soundproofing and respect for the buildings’ history.

If you wish, the owners will be happy to show you the frescoes rooms, some details of the villa renovations and narrate its history.
