Via Caparroni, 15, 87046 Montalto Uffugo (Cosenza)
A country house in Montalto Uffugo, 26 km from Camigliatello Silano, with stunning scenic views of the Crati Valley and La Sila.
As well as comfortable accommodation, guests can enjoy vegetable garden produce and traditional Calabria cuisine. On request, there are unforgettable excursions, philosophical walks and personalised cookery classes, during which you'll find yourself inspired by the little-known side of Calabria and the kindness of owners and guests: Roberta Caruso, a philosophical entrepreneur runs the first Calabrian co-living establishment, where the rooms of this traditional farmhouse welcome artists, digital nomads and inspired tourists alike. Her father, engineer at the stove, prepares the delicious cuisine.
The renovated farmhouse comprises 3 double rooms and a shared kitchen. Facilities include free Wi-Fi, adjoining rooms, free private parking, a summer swimming pool and a large co-working room, a relaxing lounge area, a scenic terrace and a garden.
All rooms include private bathrooms with showers and bidets, flat screen TVs, a small library of themed books and a desk.
The chef begins in the vegetable garden, before deciding on his menu, and commencing preparation. If time allows, he'll offer an off-the-cuff cookery class. Specialities include Sila buffalo ricotta with Spilinga nduja (a delicious pork and chilli paste) and Crati Valley Dottato figs, Podolica beef “zinzuli” with peppers and potatoes, traditional parmesan cheese and wild strawberry and bitter orange ice.
The house is 26 km from Camigliatello Silano, 1 km from the historic centre of Montalto Uffugo, 15 km from Cosenza and a 45-minute drive from the beaches of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Ionian Sea. The agriturismo staff organise tours for travellers who want to discover new Calabrian excellence in the field of sustainable and experiential tourism.

We were a family of 6 people and had a wonderful stay in this home. Our 3 rooms were very large and clean and the bathrooms were spotless. The views of the Calabrian countryside were outstanding and we had a few warm days in October so we even had a chance to try the pool (which overlooks the stunning countryside). The wifi was outstanding and one member in our family who had to do some work was able to connect and work remotely without any difficulties. We had a meal cooked by Roberto and not only was the food amazing, but there was an abundance of food! We also did a cooking class done by Roberto which was customized and very thorough. We learned to make about 10 different things and they were all delicious and easy! It's close to many things to see in Calabria and the town of Montalto is only a 10 min walk away and very interesting to see. Roberto and Roberta offered us many different things to do and see in the area as well as good places to eat in Cosenza. We would definitely return again as it's a fantastic place to stay in Calabria.
We have found a family that has welcomed us as welcome guests and that has helped us discreetly to enter into local traditions and the spirit of those who have always lived there, making you know a world and a culture that has always lived in respect of the environment.
