The surroundings

Our Rooms

We look forward to welcoming you to our hotel. Winter or summer, our hotel will spoil you with its comforts, friendliness and world renowned restaurant. All our rooms feature: breakfast included, Award-Winning restaurant, hiking/skiing gear, cocktail bar, winter corner, breath-taking mountain views.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights to explore the beautiful area. We have been greeted with the warmest welcome we ever came across. Pino, owner and I dare to say, Masterchef, made our stay unforgettable.

The hotel itself is perfectly located for excursions into Pollino National park, which hosts rare species such as the Apennine wolf, wild cats and otters. Pino Loricato or Bosnian pine is considered a pre-historical botanical marvel and it’s found only in this region (outside of its main range, the mountainous areas of the Balkans). The story is that seeds were carried over by winds.

The accommodation is comfortable and clean and if you are lucky enough to get a room with a balcony, the view is just fantastic.

Food – well, we did not expect Michelin starred quality but Pino delivered exactly that and came up with the most amazing dishes and flavours (including truffle delights). Pino uses local ingredients and takes the time to explain the story behind the dish. Just excellent and superb. We left few pounds heavier though (that’s the only “complaint” we could muster up between us). Tip – try the house wine, it’s excellent.

Other things to do in the area: in addition to exploring the beautiful Pollino National park, it’s worth visiting San Paolo and San Constantino Albanese Albanian villages established around 1534; Acquafreddo; Maratea – a beautiful costal town, the pre-historic Grotta del Romito etc. But ask Pino – he is an excellent advisor of the best places to visit. And comes October, truffle hunt is on.
