Rich in history, surrounded by wonderful nature and furnished with extraordinary comfort: the sweeping premises of country estate Le Favate at Terradura (Ascea), with separate Casa Matteo located upon a small incline, radiate a unique atmosphere. The estate was built at the beginning of the 17th century on a meanwhile 4,000 year-old salt road.
Elaborately and carefully renovated, Le Favate, which includes altogether four buildings, stands to be admired in all its splendor today. Casa Matteo was built upon the ruins of a „casale“, an old farm house, in the midst of an olive grove. It houses four holiday apartments with tasteful, high-quality furnishing.
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 livestock husbandry of cows, chicken, goats, turkeys and pigs. Le Favate is a paradise for children and adults, who wish to experience authentic Southern Italian country life.
Your holiday accommodation is located on the upper floor of Casa Matteo. From the large, roofed terrace you have got a wonderful view of the rolling hilly landscape up to the coast.
One of Casa Matteo’s special features are the beamed ceilings in all the rooms, which make for a noble-rustic touch. And, it is wood that characterizes the cozy living area with kitchenette and dining area. That is where you can cook and dine with your family and friends, plan the next day while savoring a limoncello, watch TV (satellite dish with German and English channels) or simply relax.
Your holiday apartment includes two nicely furnished bedrooms (double bed and twin beds); the mix of wood and metal chosen for their design makes for an appealing atmosphere. The bathroom is equipped with shower, bidet and WC.
As Casa Matteo is furnished with central heating, you feel comfortable even on cooler days. A grill and an outdoor shower are at your disposal in the outdoor area. Parking is available right next to Casa Matteo.
As guests of Casa Matteo you may, of course, use the country estate’s swimming pool, which is about 200 m off, as well as the fitness room and the sauna. Upon request, the owners provide parasols for your days at the beach at no extra charge. In order to get to Marina di Ascea’s 7 km of sandy beach, you can take either a partly gravel, partly tarred road (5 km) or a completely tarred road (10 km).
The washing machine in the main building can be used for a fee.
Excursions on horseback on the country estate or to the beach (only in the late afternoon) can be organized for you, too. Bicycles can be rented at Marina di Ascea. And that is also the place where the culture of Magna Graecia comes alive: The excavations of Velia – famous for its 6th century school of philosophers – are worth a closer look.
The nearest shopping facilities and café bars are found in the small villages of Terradura and Santa Barbara, each about 1 km off.
Nearest train station: Marina di Ascea (ca. 5 km)
