In an interview with Ibiza Style, Caraccia opened up about her project saying: “We just hit the road, without plans, full of enthusiasm, and went to see the countries we’ve ever wanted to see.

In 2021, Caraccia and her partner, Ray Stevenson, bought a hotel called Boutique Hostal Salinas renovating it to become a sustainable hotel.
