The Country House
Nature will give you your first welcome to the Country House, as you drive through the natural alley of Walnuts and Eucaliptus, only to arrive to the typically southern Italian Olden style Country House surrounded by green and peaceful tranquillity only few minutes away from the town centres, sandy and stony beaches, sightseeing areas, sea promenades and fantastic mountain views…
This is a great place to escape to if you wish to get away from the city traffic and the busy life of everyday…
...bring your favourite books and enjoy reading on a bench under a eucaliptus tree, while you’re sun bathing or sipping on your glass of red or white wine perhaps produced in one of the nearby family-private or DOC vineyards… taste the passion of Southern Italian flavours as you bite into homemade cheese or as you savour the traditional food of the typical local cuisine made with ingredients cultivated nearby.
Your Days at Ours
If you are in the area, driving by, and you would like to spend the day with us, you will find over 1200sqm of land surrounding the Country House giving it a touch of spring, throughout the year, with a picnic area with barbecue and drinking water for a wonderful day of relaxation and outdoor fun with family and friends throughout the year and especially in special occasions such as Easter, Easter Monday, Assumption or just for your Sunday with the Family.
The Typical Cuisine - Food & beverage
Come spend your summer holiday or weekend at our Country House “La Casa nella Prateria” and enjoy the excellent cuisine proposed with Calabrian ingredients, cultivated at 0kms away, just round the corner from us, and prepared with the traditional flavours of Southern Italy. I’m sure we will have a wine tasting event or a Special Tasting Menu for you to savour our typical flavours cooked as tradition taught us.

Driving up the hill towards the little mountain town of Buonvicino, you will enter the splendid world of nature, panoramas and views that introduce a bit of the Italian culture and history, so be sure to have a camera handy.
