The agriturismo

The beaches of Copanello and Squillace Lido are just a five-minute drive from the agriturismo, which is the ideal place to spend a quiet weekend, far from the noisy city, enjoying nature, animals, the sea, sport and good cooking.

The accommodation

The old farmhouse, once used as a tool storage area, has been renovated to create this agriturismo with its large portico.

Inside, the dining room seats up to 30 people, while in summer the outdoor patio area can be used with its marvellous panorama.

Upstairs are 2 double rooms with bathroom, both with air conditioning and TV set.

Activities and surrounding

Guests can take walks, in the company of donkeys and ponies, go mountain biking or quad biking in the grounds of the farm. There are orchards and vegetable gardens where guests can pick the produce.

Nordic walking, diving, horse riding and spinning can be practised in the nearby area.

The beaches of Copanello and Squillace Lido on the Ionian coast of Calabria are just a 5-minute drive away, with Tropea or Pizzo 40 minutes away. 10 minutes by car takes you to Soverato and Catanzaro Lido, Scolacium archaeological park, and tours to the coffee roaster where Guglielmo coffee is produced, organised on request.
A 40 minute drive will also take you to the mountains of Sila Piccola.

    "Like with friends / Like visiting friends"

    08/23/2017

    We spent a week visiting Francesca and Paolo. It was from the first moment to the departure as to be with friends and we felt very comfortable. Everything is as described and you photos catch the ambience and the location by far. The food was incredibly good and all wishes were fulfilled at breakfast. We recommend it professionally and privately absolutely and would come again and again. Thanks to this nice family and also to Maria-Grazia! - - - We were guests of Francesca and Paolo for one week. From the first moment it felt like visiting friends! Everything is like, and the pictures are not. The food was really good, and the food was good. We would recommend this to a friend and would like to go back to this hotel. Thank you Francesca and Paolo and Maria-Grazia for this nice experience!

    Exciting mix of hospitality and friendliness, surrounded by excellent local cuisine and surrounded by the tranquility of nature. Surely one of the best experiences, a must try. Thanks to Francesca, Paolo and the little Riccardo.
