Our historyHotel Sasso over the years
Over 50 years of hospitality.
In 1963, having spent almost ten years between London and Berlin working in luxury hotels, Mario Sasso returned home to Diano Marina, bringing with him the professionalism learnt there.
He came back because he loved his country and because of the idea behind the English proverb that he used to quote: “where there’s a will there’s a way”; in Italian, “volere è potere”.
He laid the foundations of the hotel that bears his name on land belonging to the family, and opened Hotel Sasso in 1964. It was just a single-storey building at first, but it soon grew, along with the family; Mario married Piera, then Federica, Elena and Alessandro were born.
Mario passed his love for hospitality down to his loved ones, and taught them that passion and determination are the essential tools for realizing your dreams.
