My grandparents, Columbus and Mary, Erica and Ennio and parents waiting for their third daughter, Daniela, in 1958 decided to build a house with a bed somewhere to rent in Alba di Canazei. In order to realize their dream gave a lot to do, and as we see from the picture the grandmother pregnant Mary worked hard in the yard.
In the fall of '58 their house was ready: it was called THE MARIA TERESA.
In 1961 the villa was enlarged.
It was built a piece used as a dining room and some rooms were added. The house changed its name VILLA ADRIA.
By 1974 a further extension formed a bar to dining new, as well as other bedrooms.
In 1983 Columbus and Maria retire and take their place his daughter Erica.
The most challenging was built in 2003. He added a 7-storey structure, which are now also the new apartments.
Now Erica's family manages the HOTEL VILLA ADRIA with the same kindness and hospitality inherited from parents.
And 'with great emotion that I sincerely thank my grandparents for all they have done for us, and my parents for what they are doing today.
