Old land tales

Cultouritaly welcomes you to Terravecchia (Calabria)

 

Enjoy with us nature and relaxing atmosphere!

 

According to the New York Times, Calabria is one of the 52 locations of the world to visit at all cost in 2017.

Excellent food and unexplored places make Calabria an original and unique destination.

A new place where to discover “another Italy” entirely Mediterranean and exclusive, far away from noise and daily routine.

In Terravecchia, in a nice and comfortable house dating back to 1917, with a wonderful terrace looking over the sea and the mountains, you can have time for reading, relaxing and, if you want, learning Italian.

With CultourItaly you can improve your Italian at the teacher’s house among “natura incontaminata” (untouched nature), silence and tranquility.
