Simonetta Demarchi was born January 28, 1965 in the village of Oleggio (Piedmont Region) in northern Italy. After completing her high school studies in Novara, she attended the University Of Turin, Faculty of Economics and Commerce. This prepared her for a long and successful career in hotel management and administration.
In 1995 she purchased a piece of property known as Casa Bellavista. Utilizing her extensive experience, she restored the house with careful attention to the design of her kitchen and gardens and in 2001 Casa Bellavista B & B was born. Within a few years it earned international reviews and was recognized among the best in the area for its charming ambiance, service and food. Its international reputation culminated when Simonneta was featured by Channel 5 (UK) as the guest chef in their TV series A Celeberity Taste Of Italy.
In 2011 she wrote her first cookbook, “Le Ricette di Casa Bellavista”, which was well received. The success of this book led her to develop her second project,
“Eat With Simonetta”.
