Born in the rural Tuscan town of Carrara, Chef Marco Garfagnini was always destined to cook, first finding his passion in the family kitchen before training in Paris, London and New York. At the age of just 29 years old, Marco’s first restaurant in Carrara, Ristorante Ninan, was awarded a Michelin star. From then on, Marco’s talent and skills went from strength to strength which led to him receiving a string of prestigious accolades.
Today, Airelles is delighted to announce that Marco Garfagnini has joined the prestigious hotel collection as Culinary Artist for the Group.
Marco will begin his journey at Airelles’ summer properties in the south of France, directing all restaurants in Saint Tropez including the brand-new restaurant concepts at Château de la Messardière: La Table de La Messardière, L’Auberge des Maures and Matsuhisa Saint-Tropez (a new summer partnership with chef Nobu Matsuhisa). Marco will also oversee Dolceva at Pan Deï Palais and Zetta, Airelles’ Italian-themed restaurant located in Saint-Tropez’s village centre.
