Our philosophy

‘Care and recreation’

This is the motto we follow at Hotel Del Buono to guide our customers and patients towards achieving an optimal psychophysical balance.

Mimic Fasting Diet, Slimming and Detox Programme

Hotel Del Buono, thanks to the support and experience of Dr. Vanessa Solfanelli, offers its customers a series of customised paths to take care of themselves by combining treatment with recreation, with personalised therapies in a serene and relaxing environment.

The proposed courses always begin with a medical examination, which is the basis on which Dr Solfanelli adapts the programmes and courses offered by the hotel to the needs and well-being conditions of all patients. This initial examination is accompanied by a final evaluation and the planning of a diet and exercise programme to be followed independently at the end of the course at the hotel, to consolidate and maintain the results obtained.

Our diet programmes, based on calorie restriction and care in food selection, are not only suitable for those who want to prevent, detoxify or take care of themselves, but also for those suffering from metabolic, chronic degenerative and oncological diseases.
For this reason, the proposed courses are also useful for those coming out of difficult periods or prolonged treatment, even in the oncological field.


The diet we propose is not just slimming, but is based on the Longevity Diet devised by Prof. Valter Longo, who has been studying cell stimulation for more than 20 years through calorie restriction and the use of functional active ingredients in food, to stimulate the cells’ capacity for survival and thus longevity, and regenerate the entire organism by counteracting the tendency to acidify tissues, which is harmful to the body’s chronic inflammatory and degenerative processes.

The diet includes a complete programme consisting of:

  • nutritional programme
  • detoxifying treatments
  • physical exercise
  • scrupulous medical supervision by highly specialised personnel
