Alessia & Christof


  • Making Damarco an accommodation with respect for the environment at its core, aimed at local patrons and travelers from abroad
  • Promote cuisine and drinks with ingredients that are as natural and locally produced as possible
  • Encourage nature-related sports activities such as walking, Nordic walking, cycling and more
  • To build a center for the promotion of art, music, culture in general, and all-round wellness through workshops, classes, and events.



Alessia and Christof share a passion for travel, foreign languages, renewable energy, natural cooking, sports and the pre-Alpine mountains.

After three years living in the English countryside, they decided to return to Italy to start their own life project at Cerbaro. Mindful of grandmother Bruna's admonition "rolling stones do not take root" Alessia and Christof hope to put down roots right here on the Tretto plateau.

In the 1970s Bruna and Marco Santacatterina kicked off the construction of the "Ristorante-Albergo Da Marco," a favorite meeting place in the Vicenza Pre-Alps.

Damarco's story is that of an entire family revolving around the spacious building with its three characteristic arches. Supported by his siblings Loretta and Gastone, Guido, Bruna and Marco's son, took over the running of the restaurant in the 1980s and made it the place of choice for gourmets who love good food as much as the warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere.

The year 2017, now two years after the passing of loved ones Bruna and Marco, is a time of return and rebuilding: granddaughter Alessia and husband Christof choose to live at Cerbaro and continue the family tradition by incorporating their vision and skills.


Damarco has four rooms with bathrooms. The large south-facing terrace invites sun worshippers to relax and enjoy the fresh, clean air. The accommodation is located at 915m above sea level: temperatures rarely exceed 30°C, a pleasant refuge from the summer heat of the plains. A spacious and quiet room is available on the ground floor for courses, retreats or seminars.

From Damarco one can admire the mountains in the area through short or long hikes and bike rides. Mountain bikes or pedal-assisted bicycles can be rented with advance notice.

Breakfast is included in the price and includes tea or coffee, juice, bread, jam, honey, butter, cheese, seasonal fruits, muesli and yogurt. Lunch and dinner can be prepared at the request of guests. Dishes from the daily menu can be chosen when the restaurant is open.

Check in: after 3:00 pm

Check out: by 10:00 am

Damarco provides transportation for guests to and from the nearby Schio train station (20 minutes by car). Venice, Treviso and Verona airports are about 1.5 hours away by car.

Vegetarian restaurant

The newly renovated bar-bistro area is spacious and welcoming.

There is a large dining room to accommodate up to 100 people-available for family parties such as weddings, christenings or groups, by reservation.

Damarco supports the use of local products to minimize environmental impact. We strive to use whole foods as much as possible for maximum nutrient intake. You will find many vegetarian options and dishes prepared with vegetables grown in Uncle Guido's garden.

Families with children are welcome. Outside the little ones will find a wooden playhouse for their games and a basketball hoop for a few games of basketball. Inside, in addition to the wide selection of books available in the book tour/book crossing mode, you will find boxed games and chess sets to keep you entertained on dreary days in front of the crackling stove.

The restroom is equipped with a changing table.

The bistro-restaurant area and bathrooms are accessible to people with disabilities.
