This lovely Agriturismo is found in the heart of the Cilento National Park in South-western Italy. The farm is set within 15 hectares of private land spotted with wild oaks, olive trees and vineyards. The farm buildings comprise a modern renovated stable block, traditional sheep folds and pig sty, as well as a well maintained kitchen garden which provides a large proportion of the food served in the on-site restaurant. During your stay you will explore the beautiful and protected landscape of the National park on horseback, as well as experiencing the stunning panoramic views across the Amalfi coastline. Each day you might climb high into the mountains to make the most of the views, or perhaps you will head down to the shore. On the way you will discover peaceful fruit orchards, quiet farm tracks, olive groves, meadows of wild herbs and ancient villages filled with impressive monuments.
A holiday here is almost certainly synonymous with relaxation; you will be in constant contact with nature and animals, as well as a more simple and rural way of living. Immersed in the countryside and surrounded by a warm family atmosphere, your stay is guaranteed to be unforgettable. There are a number of different programmes offered at this destination, which have been selected to cater for a variety of different aspirations and requirements. From relaxed Italian escapes to wonderful Mediterranean journeys and perhaps a little bit of cooking in-between. Some days you may discover ruins of the ancient Monastic and Philosophical heritages of the area. Others you may approach the beautiful blue depths of the Tyrrhenian Sea and take an exhilarating canter along the shore - there is so much here that is waiting to be discovered and to be seen!
The traditional cuisine and authenticity of the Italian flavours will not pass you by, the family invite you to experience each step of food preparation and witness first hand the old techniques passed down through generations. During your stay why not take part in a cookery class, learning to make pasta the traditional way, or become accustomed with the process of cheese, olive oil and wine making. Our Ride and Cook programme offers the chance to have 3 days of horse riding as well as 3 days of traditional italian cooking in which you will learn to make a variety of authentic sauces and dishes - both savoury and sweet!
**(Please note that horse riding on the beach is only permitted during the winter months of September to May).
