Rivabella is a care home offering the excellent comfort of a hotel, where every internal resource works hard, every day, to offer residents 24/7 medical-nursing assistance orientated towards all-round wellness.

Choosing to spend a post-acute period or retirement in our senior citizen facility will allow you to enjoy a relaxing, refined oasis where, with a good deal of enthusiasm, respect and great professionalism, we do our best to ensure that every guest feels at the centre of our attention and is absolutely “at home”.
