The guest house, Pezzotta Longa, is an independent structure, which along with three other houses, makes up the working farm, that has been producing olive oil since 1880. The house itself was once a shelter for shepherds, offering a cool respite between its thick stone walls.
Pezzotta Longa is composed of two double bedrooms, one with a double mattress and one with two single beds, one bathroom, a large living room with a fireplace, a cooking corner and a patio garden. It can comfortably sleep four people with the possibility of adding one extra bed. It is decorated with basic furniture in a typical country-style with many of the pieces coming from surrounding artisans and vendors.
The beach is around 1.8 km from the farm and can be reached by car following the Via Grande, which was the ancient Roman road to Stalettì. A trek in the surrounding area will reveal picturesque countryside and archaeological ruins like a prehistoric settlement from the neolithic age and a prehellenic necropolis from the iron age near the Alessi stream. Two important sites of cultural interest are the city of Squillace, offering the Castle of Normanno and a cathedral church, as well as the city of Stalettì and of course the archaeological park of Roccelletta in Borgia. On request, a guide will show you the beauties of the zone. Finally, there is the city of Soverato, representing one of the most important touristic sites of the Ionian sea, named the “Pearl of the Ionian Sea” because of its beauty.
If you prefer to travel by plane, it's possible to arrive at the Lamezia Terme airport. The nearest train station is also in Lamezia Terme, which is about 60 km far from the farm. From either the train station or the airport it's possible to rent a car with a shuttle service included in the price.
All guests are provided with a welcome present of fresh products from the local countryside and upon arrival Caterina will take care of presenting you the house and answering any questions.
Check-in is at 2:00 PM and check-out at 11:00 AM. Utilities and cleaning fees are included in the price. There is no Wi-fi connection in the house, but in the zone there is a good network and mobile coverage.
In the garden there is plenty of parking and in the kitchen guests will always find olive oil, coffee and all the basics for cooking. An extra bed is available on request and a beach umbrella too. Inside the house we prefer no somking, but it is the guests' choice.
If you are interested, our local guide will be very glad to show you the beauty of the zone and, if needed a babysitter and cleaning woman are available. Furthermore, our friend and chef is available to come to the house and cook traditional meals (also vegetarian) while explaining the history of the Calabrian kitchen, or if desired, he can deliver to the house. On request we can organize yoga courses.
Pets are very welcome!!
