She has worked here since we opened, been the mainstay of the Bellaugello team, kept me in my place, kept me sane, done her job incredibly well and beyond all become a great friend and confidant. Turning up for work day in and day out I’m sure Daniela knows more secrets about Bellaugello than I do!
A smiley face peeks into the kitchen with a cheeky ‘bonjour!‘ admittedly the only word she know in a foreign language 😉 if we are really lucky the bonjour is accompanied by a home made cake baked in her wood fired oven, for she is also a very good cook. Then down to work, up stairs down stairs, counting, taking, putting, replacing, making, replenishing, polishing, shining, mopping, slopping, smoothing, reloading, separating, ironing, folding, oh how the list goes on…
I look back to her first few weeks, how she coped with naked guys wandering round the pool, wondering how should I react, and my laughing with guests that as married her husband should be really concerned by her working in a place full of hot guys, but Renato is probably the happiest husband in the area, knowing she would not be harassed! Now Daniela is hopelessly blasé about nudity and all the comings and goings here, she delights in returning guests who kindly remember her too.
Her job is really important demanding precision and a keen eye for detail, I am a pernickity boss with a penchant for control freekery, I demand high standards and her job is repetitive and at times I know can be dispiriting, but rain or shine she does it really well and she is a very valued member of the team and embarrassingly for me very few of her photos appear on my blog.
Time to put this right and say on behalf of many many guests and of course myself a huge ‘brava!‘ ‘grazie‘ and thank you! Daniela. You may feel your work here to your ears is sometimes unsung, but as evidenced by the many TripAdvisor reviews complimenting the cleanliness of the suites but I assure you it is not, your work and commitment is really appreciated by many.
