The farm is around 7 km from the Gulf of Squillace and about 15km away from the town of Zagarise. The nearest town is Sellia Marina (8 km) where you will find shops, restaurants, an ATM and a pharmacy.
The family that owns the farm have a long history, in fact the family's past generations have lived there since the 1400's. The most recent owner is married to Mary - an Irish lady, so English is also spoken here. Mary works with her daughter Sara and their many well behaved dogs work hard on the land to produce various types of olive oil, fruits, vegetables and poultry.
If you enjoy walking in nature, this place has many kilometres of natural landscape to explore. You can walk along a stream that runs through the farmland and arrive at a beautiful lake with an old mill, or stroll through orchards of olive and orange trees. There are plenty of activities to enjoy at the farm, and throughout the year and you can expect to see and taste the seasonal produce.
You can make the most of the nice swimming pool (14 x 7 m) with a children's pool and water massage. There is a spacious sun terrace (350 m²) around the pool with sunbeds and umbrellas and a really great view across olive groves and of the sea on the horizon. In the courtyard there is parking space for guests, a communal barbeque area.
The accommodation is located either in the historic part (8 apartments), which have the most character, or in a newly constructed building at the main house (4 apartments). The accommodation in the newer building is particularly suitable for families with children, as they are more functional but lack the charm that is found in the original buildings. All apartments at the site have the option of air conditioning for a surcharge.
