Rich in history, surrounded by wonderful Mediterranean nature and furnished with extraordinary comfort: Le Favate at Terradura, a district of Ascea, radiates a unique atmosphere.
The country estate was erected in this place at 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, which the loopholes of the buildings bear witness to, Le Favate has, almost miraculously, survived intact over centuries. After years of extensive renovation, it now 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, for 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 to and preserving 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, apartment house Il Casone with the cozy "cantina" 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 an outdoor terrace with sea view.
The guest rooms are located on the upper floor of the main building. The 14 guest rooms are spacious, tasteful and comfortably furnished. The wooden 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 available in the reception and the pool areas as well as in your rooms. There is a small bar at the pool, where you can buy fresh drinks, a creamy cappuccino or a quick espresso.
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. Every day, Grazia, the cook, creates a multicourse meal based on old family recipes.
The country estate has a stone oven, which is often used for baking bread, but also for baking pizza. Outside the months of July and August, you and your children are welcome to help family Sacco with this 'work'.
For your well-being, there is not only a 7 x 15 m swimming pool, but also a fitness room with sauna. Individual Pilates sessions in small groups can be booked with a Pilates teacher at an extra charge and also several times per week. Further offers, in general on Sundays, include massages, pedicure and manicure (extra charge).
Upon request, family Sacco provides parasols for your days at the beach free of charge. Children are free to romp about to their hearts' delight on the Agriturismo and to use the roundabout, which has been put up for them in the shade of the olive trees.
When staying at the country estate, enjoy the advantages of holidays in green surroundings: A stroll through the shady, centuries-old olive grove down to the river is really worthwhile!
Hikers are sure to enjoy the fascinating panoramic views from the surrounding mountains. Excursions on horseback in the surroundings of 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.
