Casa Cucuzzolo

€450 a week
CASA CUCUZZOLO is situated above the village of ISCA SULLO IONIO (CZ) in Calabria , 3 km far from the Ionion sea, on a small hill, with behind the mountains, “Le Serre”. The house is surrounded by olive trees and an orange tree. It has 360 degrees view of the village, sea and mountains.
The house consists of a spacious open kitchen. There is a double bedroom, a room with a bunk bed with two single beds. The bathroom is with shower, sink, toilet and bidet. Outside there is a large covered space. Here you’ll find the buzz of the village and the silence of nature.

A country cottage gave the farmer peace and shelter during bad weather and rain. The nets for the olive harvest and the tools were kept here. In the house there was always a parmento present, a basin made of cement, where, during the harvest, the grapes were crushed to separate the moisture from skin and seeds. The land in the mountains of Calabria consists of terraces. And this is, depending of the place, full of olive trees, vineyards, orange trees and other fruit trees. Between these trees, and of course near the water, there was always a kitchen garden.
