What's special?
special Meet local people
special Fairy landscape
special Discover Calabria Grecanic culture
Mountains, hills, hidden waterfalls and rivers, and then the silence of ancient uninhabited villages, of old roads now traveled only by the flocks of Aspromonte shepherds. And again the sea, the sunsets, the breathtaking views, the friendliness and hospitality of the people of Calabria. You don't need anything to experience all this, all you need is your eyes and your heart.

About me: I've trevelled around the world searching for real experience and sharing moment with locals and this is what I wish to show about my area. I would like to share with other travellers the taste of tradition, nature, and beauty and, of course, of the typical calabrian food!

Accommodation: Accommodations will be in a brand-new apartment with 2 double bed and 1 bathroom. The apartment is very cozy with air conditioning and washing machine. You will find every morning a very special homemade breakfast with local products. Private room in B&B will cost 40 € more per night. Do you have a question? Please ask in the Q&A!
