16tj June 2008

The Hotel Villa Vecchia in Frascati celebrated its entry into Space Hotels, the hotel reservation and marketing group, with a Spring Festival, where performances were given by Giulio Golia from the TV show "Iene" and the musical group "Everglades". The upscale evening in the green hills outside of Rome was a great success. Every detail of the event had been organised by the hotel's sales manager, Allegra Calabresi. The guests included clients of Space Hotels from the city and province of Rome and many Space affiliates from Rome, Cagliari, Perugia and Naples, as well as the group's staff. Three prizes of weekend stays were drawn and awarded amongst all the guests.

Space is growing
Space Hotels, the Italian branch of the Space Supranational Hotels group, has strengthened its offer in Latium with the addition of the Hotel Villa Vecchia in Frascati. Space Hotels has created a precise development strategy focusing on the region that is home to the capital city of Italy. The number of tourists in Rome grows annually by 10% and the occupancy rate has now reached 64%. The results of deseasonalisation are now being seen, as the three months of the high season now comprise only 20% of the annual occupancy. In early 2008, Space Hotels improved its performance with an increase of almost 10% in its annual turnover, an 8.24% rise in GDS and Web activity and a more than 10% increase in telephone reservations.

Spring Festival
The Spring Festival evening opened with an aperitif served in the elegant winter garden of Villa Vecchia, decorated with splendid works of art, followed by a buffet dinner in the gazebo room called "I Cedri". The dinner spread included a whole roasted pig, bruschettas and specialities of the cuisine from the Roman Castles area accompanied by local wines, sangria and prosecco. While dining, the guests were entertained by the Everglades, a five-member band.

Three weekend prizes
The party culminated with the drawing of three prizes for weekend stays in three fantastic Space hotels: T Hotel in Cagliari, Piccolo Castello in Siena Monteriggioni and Relais Monaco in Treviso/Ponzano Veneto. The drawing was conducted by the comedian Giulio Golia, well known for his role in the comic group the "Iene" - which means hyenas - who are famous for their satire.
