1278

AN ANCIENT HISTORY

One feels that the Hotel Meublé Fiori has always existed.

As a hotel, patisserie, bakery or bar, our home has always been a meeting place and one of hospitality, its history inextricably bound to that of the Fiori Monego family of San Vito.

We’re one of the oldest families in all Cadore. Since 1278 we have lived between the Pelmo and Antelao mountains, initially close by the church of Saint Rocco in Serdes. Monego, our family nickname, comes in fact from the name given to the priest’s adjutant.

AN ANCIENT HISTORY

La sensazione è che l’Hotel Meublé Fiori esista da sempre.

As a hotel, patisserie, bakery or bar, our home has always been a meeting place and one of hospitality, its history inextricably bound to that of the Fiori Monego family of San Vito.

We’re one of the oldest families in all Cadore. Since 1278 we have lived between the Pelmo and Antelao mountains, initially close by the church of Saint Rocco in Serdes. Monego, our family nickname, comes in fact from the name given to the priest’s adjutant.

1910

THE FIRST BAKERY
IN SAN VITO

In 1903 Tommaso Fiori decided to move to the centre of San Vito and in 1910, together with his son, Matteo, inaugurated the first bakery in San Vito di Cadore. The Fiori bakery quickly became one of the core businesses in town, at the heart of its everyday life.

Despite two world wars, great-grandpa Matteo, his wife Giuditta and their eleven children managed to turn their home into a small hotel with a homey feel, a great starting point for the exploration of the world’s most beautiful mountains.

Thanks to the success of the 1956 Winter Olympics in Cortina, the house was officially transformed into a boarding house with a bar, a restaurant and soon thereafter a renowned patisserie.

THE PATISSERIE

Matteo’s young son Giovanni had since childhood shown a great passion for confectionery. Once he created one of his perfect desserts, he used to write down its recipe and keep it safe in a folder. Grandpa Giovanni’s recipe book is for us today still a great treasure, one guarded jealously. His recipes still give us the strudel, the Sacher torte, the cheesecake and the krapfens, our most valued pastry.

Right before the Olympics, Giovanni married young Gelinda De Lotto, who became swiftly famous for her legendary coffee, her smile and her hot chocolate with whipped cream which, to this day, we prepare following her recipe.

1980

THE MEUBLÉ FIORI

Giovanni ran the business with his brother Giuseppe until 1980, when irreconcilable disagreements divided them.

From this division of the great Fiori family house and the intuition of Giovanni’s son, Tarcisio, the Meublé Fiori Hotel was born. The idea was to create a hotel which had in its breakfast an unparalleled strong point.

Together with his sister Alessandra and wife Patrizia, Tarcisio came up with the Fiori Breakfast, a rich buffet built around a daily selection of grandpa Giovanni’s traditional pastry.

2003

THE WELLNESS AREA

In 2003, in a section of the hotel, family rooms complete with a kitchen were built and the building was also equipped with a small wellness area with Finnish Alpine sauna, Mountain Herbs Bio sauna, Steam bath hammam and Emotional showers.

2018 - 2019

THE GREAT RENOVATION

In 2018 and 2019 the hotel has undergone a radical renovation which encompassed every room, the reception and the halls for snacks and breakfast. The Wellness Area has been equipped with a garden and 3 new deluxe rooms have been built in the attic. We also expanded our Ski and Bike room.

Together with our new hotel, we broadened our excursion offers and changed our name to FIORI Dolomites Experience Hotel to underline our idea of a holiday in the mountains that is active, explorational and exciting.

TODAY

Today, together with our father Tarcisio and our mother Patrizia, we passionately manage this small hotel and patisserie that is also our home, our history and our family.
