My wife and I stayed for 4 wonderful days and couldn't have been happier. We unluckily struck poor weather we really enjoyed our stay, Pasquale and his mum Vittoria were wonderful hosts and made us feel at home. Vittoria was a fantastic cook and her food is awesome. If you are thinking of a stay in Calabria you couldn't choose better,
Pasquale, the landlord, has cared for us in his very natural and warm manner unobtrusive and yet present throughout the time. Just over 1 km away, in Villa Vittoria, we were well cooked by his mother, Donna Vittoria, if we wanted to and the ambience on the half-covered terrace under the old, huge pine tree is not describable, but only experienceable. So if you are looking for peace, seclusion, warmth and scenic idyll between citrus and olive groves, comes here at his expense. We will definitely come back. Hubert & Christianna.

My husband and I spent 4 days in this beautiful Agritourismo. Surrounded by citrus and olive trees and a beautiful heated swimmingpool in the garden. We love trekking and there are several good trails in the neighborhood. Mama Vittorias cooking is beautiful. You must have dinner here if possible. Their own wine is good, and all other homemade products are tasty too. When Villa Vittorias restaurant is closed can you have dinner at Vittorias brothers place cross the river. Jock the nice little dog accompanied us there and waited faithfully until we had finished dinner, and made shure we got back.
Please to meet you, my name is Pasquale and I am 53 years old.
I have been doing this job for 19 years along with my parents.
As well as we cook for the guests, we welcome the guests, we take care of the crops.
It was a desire to to keep the family business alive which led me to run an agriturismo.
Our guests' favourite thing about Villa Vittoria is the warm family welcome.
