Accommodations for Mediterranean Cilento Ride and Cook


This is a stationary ride so all nights are spent at the same location.

The farm is located in one of the most beautiful spots of the Cilento National Park. The panorama along the road is lovely and spectacular, changing from the green olive trees to the blue sea ; the scents of nature are everywhere. The farm is laid out on 40 acres of private land. In a valley of oak trees, olives and wine yards. 
The main part of the farm consists in old stables, now restored. There is a spacious and comfortable restaurant where you can try the best local food and regional wines, a little store room and shop for our products and also a small cheese factory where we produce our own special goat cheese.
To complete the farm there is a swimming pool (opens at the end of April) and two cottages with nicely furnished rooms or apartments and wide open spaces to offer you relaxing hours and freedom of movement.
WIFI is only accessible near the restaurant. Laundry is available for 5 EUR.

Different kinds of accommodations will satisfy every need of the guests: rooms and apartments all well furnished, spacious, and comfortable with private bathrooms and surrounded by a wonderful nature and beautiful view. Rooms come with a safe, air conditioning, kettle, hairdryer, and mini fridge. The accommodations offer all comforts, terraces, gardens, and are all nearby the wonderful swimming-pool and solarium in order to enjoy sunny days and a magical atmosphere. All double rooms can be converted into twin share with two standard single beds.

Casa Cristallo
Right next to the swimming-pool among ancient olive-trees and Mediterranean scents an old farmer’s home has become Casa Cristallo and it still conserves a typical Cilento style. There are four comfortable double-rooms on the ground floor each with mini-bar and private bathroom with shower. Each room is equipped with safe, mini-bar and kettle so that you can make a refreshing cup of tea at any time of day and maybe drink it in the garden which surrounds the house, under the shade of an olive tree, and gaze at the enchanting nature that surrounds you.

Casa Pendio

Casa Pendio is a small apartment in the center of Casal Velino; it offers independent accommodation whilst enjoying all the benefits associated with staying in an agritourism. Ideal for a young couple or a family with small children, this one-bedroom apartment has a large living room with kitchenette and sofa bed, separated from the mezzanine double bedroom by a stone arch. The bathroom is fitted with a shower and a washing machine.
 The small terrace at the front of the house, complete with parasol, wooden table and chairs, is the perfect place for al fresco dining. Altogether, the scent of the surrounding flowers and the views over the gulf, make for an unforgettable stay. On clear days you can admire a long section of the Cilentan coast stretching from Velia to Palinuro. Casa Pendio is just 1.5 kilometers from the agritourism which means that despite being an independent house in the heart of the town, it can also take advantage of all the services offered by the agritourism (use of the pool, half board option, free wi-fi connection, riding stables, participation in proposed activities and excursions, etc.).
The house has no private parking but there is ample space for cars out front.

I Lavatoi

Independent apartment in the historical center of Casal Velino right in front of the ancient wash-basins which used to be a meeting-point for all women of the town.
The house has been refurbished in a rustic style and preserves its period wooden ceilings and furnishings. Distributed over two floors, it offers comfortable accommodation for up to 5 people: on the ground floor, at street level, is the front entrance; on the first floor is the living room with kitchen, a large master bedroom with balcony and a first bathroom; on the second floor is a bedroom composed of single bed and double sofa-bed served by a second bathroom. From this room you can go out onto the terrace which has a breathtaking view of the green hills to the left and the blue Cilentan sea to the right.
The apartment is fully air-conditioned and equipped with a washing machine. Despite being external to the agritourism, the apartment enjoys all the services on offer to in-house guests (use of the pool, half-board option, free wi-fi, riding stables, participation in activities and excursions, etc).
The house doesn’t have its own parking space but guests are invited to make use of the public ones just a few steps away. 

Room Occupancy
Single supplement is mandatory if we are unable to find another rider to share.

Breakfast, picnic lunches while on excursions, and dinner as well as house wine with dinner is included. Lunches when not on excursions are not included, but our restaurant offers a delicious variety.
As we don't have a fixed menu, the price depends on how many dishes clients order and which kind of dishes. An average of € 30-35 per person per a complete menu (appetizer + first course + second course + side dish + dessert). 

We offer our guests home-style dishes; most of the ingredients are made at the farm (hand-made pasta, vegetables, olive oil, meat, goat cheese, legumes, marmalades) and they are organic. Looking for the traditional ancient flavours is our unicity. Those flavours, often only a memory, are re-proposed by the family with an innovating taste.

The wine cellar offers not only our excellent wine but also some of the best labels of the region Campania (drinks not included). A little shop inside the farm allows you to buy the self-made products such as the highly appreciated goat-cheese made in their own little cheese factory.

Dietary Restrictions
We can cater to dietary restrictions given prior notice.

This trip includes some wine with dinner and can accommodate special dietary requests.
