Description

Detached three-bedroomed house, on an agritourist estate, not far from sea, lovely spot, amazing food. Michael loves Il Casale as a great base for exploring. 

Il Casale is an agritourist property, run by the delightful Federico, his wife Maria-Antonietta, his sister Clotilde and her husband, Umberto, and it is a real family affair. Surrounded by the farm and woods, which are home to wild boar, falcons and countless other wildlife, the imposing 19th century farmhouse is down a long track, through 7,000 olive trees. It is equal distance from the Ionian and Tyrrhenian Seas and, in an elevated position, its grounds have views towards the sea, in the distance. Huge palms line the front of the house, where shaded seating areas enjoy fabulous views of the valley and the olive groves, which stretch almost as far as the eye can see. Well-kept lawns surround the house and an inviting pool lies behind it, on a sunny terrace. There is also an ancient chapel.
 
Approximately 500m from the main farmhouse, Antica Casa is in a superb, tranquil spot, with views as far as Stromboli, on a clear day. Incredibly spacious, it has three bedrooms and even an extra loo, in the old tower!
 
Even though this is for guests, who want to cater for themselves, be warned, it is difficult to resist the fantastic food served back at the farmhouse. It is delicious, authentically Calabrian, based on traditional dishes, using fresh and seasonal ingredients. Eat here once and you'll want to dine every night - we did. Every year, the farm produces 50,000 litres of an exceptional olive oil and much-prized very special olives from just half its trees. With recipes featured in the book of Matthew Fort, that famous English Vespa-riding food writer and critic, you certainly have a treat in store. Locals also appreciate the cuisine and they often pour in for Sunday lunch especially, creating a really lively atmosphere.

Antica Casa

(sleeps up to 6)
Approximately 500m by car from the farmhouse, by a track completely on Il Casale's own land, Antica Casa is in a superb, tranquil location, with views as far as Stromboli, on a clear day. It is a superb for nature lovers.
 
Incredibly spacious, the ground floor has large kitchen (microwave and hob only)/dining room with fireplace, washing machine and CD player; double bedroom with en-suite shower room/wet-room; separate bathroom, with small bath and hand shower. Spiral stairs to first floor and straight into huge double/twin bedroom; door from this room leads directly into second large double bedroom and then into an extra loo, in the old tower!
 
So enormous that guests (and furniture!) might seem to rattle around in this big house, especially upstairs, the kitchen/dining room is great, and the outside, furnished space is delightful.

Feedback

"We are back from the most fantastic holiday and the high spot for us all was the beauty, the hospitality and the warmth of the family in Il Casale. The food was out of this world, served with genuine grace & attention to detail. We adored the cooking course and we had a very happy time. " Ellie, Oxford
 
"The food at Il Casale was simply incredible, exactly as described by Matthew Fort. " Dave, London
 
Food critic and writer Matthew Fort stopped off at Il Casale, near Pianopoli, on his vespa-riding journey through Italy. In his book "Eating Up Italy" he wonders why  "....the British are so obsessed with the cooking of Tuscany and Umbria, which seemed limited and boring compared to the food of Calabria." He goes on to marvel at the fare produced for Sunday Lunch and the locals' capacity to eat it all! He fell in love with Il Casale and the family who run it and his book features several of their recipes - well worth a read.
 
"Cannot praise the accommodation and staff too highly - their dinners are also excellent. " Harry, Matlock
