Your Hosts

0Dom Tassielli and Elena PasturaWelcome to Birmingham Manor Bed and Breakfast. We have been operating our B&B since June 2011 in an impeccably restored Victorian heritage home. The experience thus far has been exhilarating and rewarding for us: we love Stratford, the Festival Theatre, the many wonderful restaurants and our new friends.  Running the Manor has enabled us to meet wonderful guests from all over the world, the diversity has been astounding.  Together we have explored and shared our passion for food: preparing breakfast for our guests is a delight. It is also our desire to make it a unique destination — Dom & Elena’s place.Both of us come from a long career in private education (Leonardo Da Vinci Academy and the Italian Cultural Institute  in Toronto) where dealing with children was a most rewarding endeavour. As much as we love education, the thought of running such a magnificent establishment made the decision to change careers very palatable.

Birmingham Manor Bed and Breakfast, a unique Victorian mansion in Stratford, Ontario’s heritage district, is the perfect home to share with many distinguished guests. The hospitality industry offers us the opportunity to immerse in the two passions which excite us, enjoying people and enjoying food. We will be honoured to meet and to serve you!

“We were thrilled to acquire this superb heritage mansion in the heart of Shakespeare Festival country. We look forward to providing you, our cherished guests, with many years of the best in service and hospitality.”  Elena & Dom


We love to travel and over the years we have visited Alaska, the Canadian Rockies, cruised through the Panama Canal, zip lined in Costa Rica, toured Iceland-where we did see the Northern Lights, and extensively traveled throughout Italy.

Our next travels will take us to Paris where we hope to visit Martinn at Key2Paris.   Hers is a beautiful B&B located steps away from the Louvre. If you are thinking in visiting Paris as well, do check her website, Martinn also offers “Gourmet Walks”.

Key2Paris “Easy and Gourmet B&B with independence, a place to stay where sharing and caring are part of our DNA”.
