A Maison with a refined colonial atmosphere, the charming 5-star-quality residence is located in the heart of ancient Treviso. The boutique hotel opened its doors in 2008 from an idea of Elena Cinel, who gave it the name of her daughter, not surprisingly, given the huge love she put into creating this enchanted corner of the world.
In the summer of 2019 the management passed to Viviana Fernandez, “elected” by Elena precisely for the family love that she continues to put in the maison. Viviana, in fact, an American of Mexican origin, who moved to Treviso for the love of her Alberto, not only continues the tradition of top-quality hospitality of the hotel but has also strengthened its Latin and international soul that combines the best of various cultures to offer guests unique emotions.
The welcome from Viviana and Alberto, and their 3 children (who speak 5 languages perfectly), is truly exceptional, ready to pamper and fulfill every request of their customers, who often become friends who really feel “at home” here. The interior is in fact that of a colonial maison that speaks of exotic and romantic travels, with original and refined furnishings that combine with vintage and deco-style objects and furniture with contemporary design, from B&B Italia to Maison Margiela.
So at the entrance, the beautiful living room with its warm turn-of-the-century atmosphere strikes the scene, where a scenic original staircase and a Napoleon III-style chandelier hanging from the center of the room steal the show. Going up to the first floor, the details enchant: the boiserie on the walls conceal hidden doors with a game of trompe-l’œil which leads to the five bedrooms plus a suite, each wonderfully decorated in a different way.
Linen sheets, latex mattresses with king-size plus beds, Maison Margiela towels, and amenities that bring with them the warmth and scent of Ortigia, the refined heart of Sicily, as well as a Nespresso coffee machine and various delicacies are available in every room.
The Maison Matilda Suite is beautiful and consists of a master bedroom with a deco canopy bed, a living room with a comfortable French bed and a refined bathroom in Carrara marble.
The pampering continues at breakfast, a ritual that can be done at all hours of the day because Viviana collects pre-stay wishes and directions from all guests. Strictly home-made, it can be served in your room, in the living room in front of the fireplace, on the terrace, or in the flowery courtyard. Served in refined porcelain, it is based on homemade cakes, brioches from the Casellato pastry shop, NonSoloPane bread, cold cuts, and cheeses from local shops.
Available to guests throughout the day (and night) are coffee, tea, soft drinks, and pastries offered by the Maison, a private garage available to guests, and a 24-hour concierge service.
Upon request Maison Matilda also offers an extraordinary home chef service for the preparation of dinners, aperitifs, and sweet and savory breaks, combining the pleasures of a home with those of the finest international cuisine.
Maison Matilda is located in the building that was owned by Count Jacopo Francesco Riccati born in Venice on May 28, 1676, a famous Italian mathematician who, thanks to his multifaceted genius, produced various theories and writings in the fields of mathematics and physics, natural sciences and architecture, religion and poetry. He received various awards, becoming a member of the Academy of Sciences of Bologna, and today he is also remembered for the equations that bear his name. He died in Treviso in 1754.
