Calabria, Italy
La Terra del Sole - The Land of Sunshine
A region's gastronomy is based on culture and microclimate, its cuisine on technique.
...and so we've chosen this setting bristling with pristine beaches, citrus groves, vineyards, olive orchards, and medieval hilltop towns and fishing villages as the perfect place to finely tune culinary arts...

Our Perfect Location
CALABRIA
encompasses the essence of everything Mediterranean, surrounded by clear blue seas and medieval villages...


Welcome to Calabria!
Uniquely positioned between three azure coastlines - the Tyrrhenian, Ionian, and Mediterranean - Calabria is often referred to as the real Italy. Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, sports enthusiasts and beachgoers delight in the longest and whitest stretches of public beaches in Europe as well as rich jagged mountain systems traversed with rivers and lakes of enchanting beauty. The mountains of Sila are among the tallest in Italy and their three national parks make up more protected space than anywhere else in the country. Historians and artists are in awe of Calabria's cultural treasures and serenity - its Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and Norman heritage, in outdoor and indoor museum settings as well as living history villages. Gourmets discover Mediterranean cuisine, from the source, and understand why it's become the world's choice...
