FAMILY HISTORY IN PORTO ERCOLE
In 2012 the Jonsson family spent their first summer in Porto Ercole and after that they bought and renovated an old villa on the island. Then they discovered the old factory with the amazing location and view by the sea in Porto Ercole. The family decided to acquire the building and the plot and started the process of building a hotel on the site. Since the purchase of the building, the project has engaged with architects, engineers, hotel logistics experts and designers to plan for an optimal hotel experience. The response from the residents in Porto Ercole has been very positive and supportive. They appreciate what a high-quality hotel would mean for the village and the municipality long term with increased tourism, more permanent jobs, more visitors to local restaurants, bars and shops.
