An unforgettable holiday
Our agriturismo is located in the plain of the river Sele, where the Paestum temples rise: an area of exceptional historical and archaeological interest, now famous for the production of mozzarella (a fresh cheese made from water buffalo milk), fruit and crops. The ensemble of historical buildings from the 18th century is structured as a tiny village that was once lost in a deserted countryside and organized as a basically self-sufficient community. The buildings have been now refurbished in order to obtain rooms and apartments of different sizes, offering on the one hand comfort standards largely meeting a three star hotel, on the other hand all the advantages of an authentic countryside environment. The farm around has a size of 32 hectar, partially covered by greenhouses, and mostly producing crops and baby-leaf salads. It is certified as organic by ICEA.
Our traditional menu guarantees our guests to have a full Italian dinner – including an entrée, a first and a second main course, a side dish and a dessert or fruit. Our meals are strongly based on farm products (as wine, extravirgin olive oil, fruit, fresh and preserved vegetables from our garden, herbs) and on local products mostly from neighbouring farms.
We offer our guests a relaxing farm stay in a historical building from the the 18th century, where you will find a quite countryside and a family-friendly environment: gardens, meadows, vineyards and organic fields, a wide swimming pool for your leisure and a set of animals for the children. Further, you can find in roomy comfortable accommodations of different kinds and sizes, including double rooms and self-catering apartments. You have the opportunity to taste in our restaurant and to buy in our farmshop the specialties from the area and the products from our organic farm, in particular our organic wine. At last, you have the possibility to visit the most beautiful sites of Campania in short daily trips.
