Hotel in Historic Villa on the Adriatic Sea
It was the year 1877 when Professor Mori di Cesena thought of erecting a beautiful villa for himself and his family on the beach of Cattolica, near the baths, facing the sea. The two crouched lions guarding the two entrances, the beautiful wrought iron gate, sacrificed to the altar of the homeland during the war, give a sense of respect for this structure set in the greenery of its park.
The Hotel Villa Fulgida
In 1933 Mrs. Andreina Sormani, with her brother Fausto, decided to buy the Villa of Doctor Mori, transforming it with great intuition and a completely Milanese managerial attitude, into the Hotel Villa Fulgida. The columns, the travertine marble entrances, the mosaic floors in the dining room and hall, the very high ceilings, the half-moon window frames, the royal yellow marble staircase with wrought iron railings remain testimony to the past.
How many memories and testimonies about Villa Fulgida collected in the photographic and historical albums: the war, the reconstruction, the years of tourism and the economic boom. The Hotel has hosted illustrious names, celebrities and simple vacationers.
From 1950 to our times
At the end of the 1950s, instead of the horse stables, she raised a second building, of a more modern conception, wisely integrated with the rest of the structure. In 2008 a loggia was added in the garden, well used for morning breakfast, themed dinners, aperitifs and parties. Since 2016, next to the loggia, there is a play area for children.
The Villa while maintaining its structural and architectural characteristics unaltered, over the years has been enlarged, modernized in the bedrooms, bathrooms and furnishings, providing it with air conditioning and a lift.
