Inside the Gabella estate there are two ancient fortified houses at the time of banditry, in the early nineteenth century. Here, in Le Carolee, where on clear days you can admire the Aeolian Islands and sometimes even the plume of Etna, in an oasis of quiet and tranquility, in the green of the olive trees, the Gaetano family welcomes guests according to the rules and the customs of ancient xenia
A very friendly, helpful owner family & most kind staff alike, who made us feel most welcome, our 4 year old son a happy child, us privileged people to enjoy their oil & food, their splendid well kept palazzo. Our most enjoyed place in Calabria ! And that is without being directly on the shores of the sea. Grazie mille Familia Gaetano & staff.
Nothing. We feel privileged to be allowed into this space. And this is not the place of WLAN-optimisations. This is a place of culture 😉
We went there in June 2018 with 5-months old baby and we would like to visit this great place once again. The staff was very polite and helpful. We had a flight back home very early in the morning, and they have prepared for us breakfast that was already waiting in the dining room. They offered fruits, cheese, ham or eggs in addition to the sweet breakfasts that were served. All the meals were very tasty. It was possible to order some snacks and pasta during the day. The dinner consisted of antipasti, first dish, second dish, fruits/dessert and digestif. Rooms were meticulously cleaned and well equipped. The villa is beautiful, located at the hill with an amazing view, but a bit far from the town, therefore there are no shops/restaurants in the walking distance. It is a good base camp for the trips in Calabria, very close to the airport.
Perfect breakfast, they were nice to try and accommodate to different types of breakfasts, served outside, in a beautiful scenery, cannot beat this...Nice local cheese, great variety of home made jams.
I cannot think of anything I did not like...maybe the road to get to the property is a little tricky...narrow street. But this is not something which could be improved by the property.
Piękne miejsce. Widoki obłędne. Cisza i spokój. Daleko od zgiełku włoskich miast. Cudowne miejsce na relaks nawet poza sezonem. Personel wspaniały. A jedzenie - trzeba tego spróbować. Wyśmienite!!! Na miejscu można też kupić lokalną oliwę.
