La Cioccolateria

Next to the hotel entrance on the ground floor, you will find our chocolate boutique called La Cioccolateria. Here, in an interior decorated with a mosaic of chocolate, cream and gold shades, we create truly unique chocolates and desserts. All suppliers – small but proven cocoa plantations in Central America and Asia – are personally selected by Chief Chocolatier Wielfried Andre Hauwel, which allows us to monitor the quality of the product from the moment the cocoa beans are planted to the final work of chocolate art. Unique sweets and desserts, limited seasonal chocolate collections and original flavor combinations with the best ingredients like Piedmontese hazelnuts are the trademark of La Cioccolateria.
