Rich in history, surrounded by Mediterranean wonderful nature and offering extraordinary comfort: Le Favate in Terradura radiates a unique atmosphere.
The country estate was erected in this place as early as the beginning of the 17th century. The more than 3000 year-old salt road crossing the estate reaches the Tyrrhenian Sea 5 km further on, near Velia (today’s Ascea).
In spite of a great number of armed conflicts in times gone by, to which the loopholes of the buildings bear witness, Le Favate has, almost miraculously, survived intact over centuries. Today, after years of extensive renovation, it stands to be admired in all its splendor.
Embedded in a lush green, broad valley the estate covers a total of 50 ha – a lot of space for more than 10,000 olive trees, vineyards and vegetable gardens, as well as for the husbandry of livestock.
Le Favate is a paradise for children and adults who wish to experience authentic Southern Italian country life. Keeping up old, local traditions is of prime importance concerning the management of the estate.
The architectural ensemble of the estate includes the main building, an outbuilding, the apartment house Il Casone with its elegant "cantina" located on the groundfloor and the 17th century oil mill on the river La Fiumarella. The main building includes a lovely private chapel, a lounge and dining hall as well as a terrace with sea view.
The guest rooms are located on the upper floor of the main building. The 14 guest rooms are spacious, tastefully and comfortably furnished. The furniture is hand-made. Your room includes fireplace or terracotta oven, Sat-TV, telephone and bathtub or shower with hydro massage.
The washing machine in the main building can be used for a fee. Free Wi-Fi is provided in the reception and the pool area.
Le Favate’s cuisine delights you with exquisite Cilento specialities – the ingredients used are for the most part home-grown and home-made or of local origin.
