Farmhouse

A unique experience in the heart of the Locride

The estate lies in one of the most enchanting corners of Calabria, rich in history and culture, natural beauty and agricultural vocation. It is situated in Locri, on the Costa dei Gelsomini  (the Jasmine’s Riviera), chosen by the Ancient Greeks to found what was to become one of the most prosperous and important colonies of Magna Grecia, Locri Epzefiri.

 

The landscape expresses the essence of the Mediterranean lands:  breathtaking coasts only a stone throw away from the Aspromonte Mountains  represent the best habitat for olive, vineyards and citrus fruits cultivations. The estate, which lies in the Modi suburb of Gerace, consists of old country houses, that represent nowadays the heart of the guesthouse.  This is the centerpiece of our hospitality project, which is our attempt to promote the unique resources of this area.

 

We tried to implement several activities in the same place: we dedicated areas to convey old traditions and peasant art crafts, as well as educational spaces dedicated to children, in order to promote a sort of  healthy school lunch program , based on the enhancement of the Mediterranean Diet and of organic food. In the ancient barn we put on an inn, where we try to add value to all of our products and fruits, through homemade recipes and flavors from our rural past.

 

The estate is today a sort of refuge for anyone looking for relaxing moments in the scented Calabrian atmosphere or for those who want to enjoy outdoor activities, the swimming pool or a simple horse riding through olive groves and vineyards.
