  • Description


    My name is Stephanie and I live in a small village in Calabria of historical ethnic origins in the Pollino national park. I have a big house where I host people who want to know this area and make unique experiences to discover local culture, natural scenery and local cuisine. I live in my house with my daughter and my partner. I barter food and lodging with native speakers of English (I know a little Italian) to teach me how to converse in a foreign language (period: 2 week -1 month), they are willing to trade room and board with artist or craftsman who personalize my home (with murals, small works in wood and / or stone, etc..). I offer hospitality and knowledge of the area in which I live.

    Civita is a village of 800 inhabitants, but with numerous accommodation facilities. It is a village of great aesthetic quality, situated on a hill, a few kilometers from the sea and the mountains. It is ideal that you can drive a car. The village is located a few kilometers from a city center. The means available are a bus, a train station 18 km away and the airport is 140 km away. Here it is very beautiful and healthy to walk in nature. The village is very quiet and you need to be a lover of tranquility and silence, music and art and have a hobby of reading or cooking. There are not many shops, but lots of space and nature.
