The Experience

On a gently sloping hillside gazing out to the Mediterranean, enjoy the peace of the family home of Clelia and her parents Rocco and Marisa. Surrounded by olive trees and a heady mix of tropical plants – bergamot, oranges, avocado, macadamia and guava – wander the lush grounds, relax by the pool and feel the stresses slip away. The four simple but homey apartments, each with full kitchen, are in the main house (which is shared with the family) but have their own entrance. The four double rooms, with floral bedspreads, tiled bathrooms and terrace, are on the hillside just below the pool. Tuck in to breakfasts of fresh bread, jams and fruit from the farm in the rustic loggia dining room while enjoying sea views through the palm trees. Kids will love the pool, play area and table football. Go horse riding or hike the nearby mountain reserve, visit archaeological sites and medieval villages, or head into town, just three miles away. For the energetic, join in with the farm work or head for the kite surfing centre nearby! Return to dinners of mouthwatering Calabrian dishes served at the family dining table.

Stunning scenery, idyllic domaine, super welcoming family. What a delightful stay. Thank you Clelia.

Sylvie, PARIS 10

What a wonderful stay - thank you to Clelia and family. We enjoyed delicious home cooked food together - courgette flower fritters, kaki (fruit with a texture a bit like lychee), pasta with tomatoes and basil from the farm, aubergine in many tasty forms, local wine and lovely almonds (I could go on!) We had a special tasting of Clelia's extra virgin (award winning) olive oil and can see why she's a winner. The tour of the farm was memorable and the first time seeing avocados growing. The pool was welcoming too. Thank you for the great experience, Sally & Kate

  • You can “cross” Italy in only 20 minutes! Being at the thinnest point of Calabria and Italy, a stay at Agriturismo Livadia allows you to to travel between the Tyrrhenian and the Ionian Sea taking in the diversity of both countryside and nature.
  • You’re in the heart of one of the most unexplored regions of Italy. In one hour in any direction you can bear witness to the wonders of the landscape: untouched paradisiacal beaches, archaeological parks, mountains, and a huge variety of culture.
  • In the surroundings are thrilling cycling routes, walking and hiking trails, the Mediterranean flavour of olive groves, Oak trees the scent of Gorse and the stunning backdrop of the sea framed by the Aeolian Islands.
