Ca Lucano is a restored farmhouse with a fantastic infinity beach pool and friendly hospitable staff. Like the last review said - be careful finding the place - sat-nav tells you to go up a very steep rocky almost-impassable road, but the road you need is tarmacced most of the way.
Once you get there though - wow - it's beautiful. Just sitting poolside your cares disappear and you really unwind.
Our room was basic and exactly as described on the website. Walls were quite thin so you could hear people in adjacent rooms or the hallway fairly clearly which was a shame but after an exhausting day in the sun didn't cause us any problems getting to sleep. The shower was never hot, but never freezing cold. Perfectly fine for the summer.
The pool wasn't heated and at the warmest was about 26c, lovely and refreshing. On the first day it was only 22c so almost too chilly to use.
Breakfast was typical of a European B&B - sweet croissant, ham, cheese, yoghurts etc. plentiful but basic. We enjoyed the evening meal twice with a 4 course meal (e.g. bruschettas, pasta, meat, fig pie) with wine for €25 per person which was good value. My girlfriend is a vegetarian and Nelo the owner was very accommodating, changing the meal as necessary.
As for activities - you can take a walk from the farmhouse into the forest, but it gets fairly wild and overgrown after about 20 minutes of walking so take Nelos' advice. If you're planning day trips in the area speak to Nelo as has has some great recommendations for places just off the beaten track.
The only reason I wouldn't rate it excellent is the couple of minor things which others have picked up on - no glasses in the room, and the thin walls that some with noisy neighbours might find irritating.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The agriturismo completely built in stone, was probably founded on the ruins of a medieval holy building.The recent renovation, which made use of original building materials such a stone, fired brick, and wood, is a careful restauration which culminated in the rebirth of the beautiful original structure.Green farm. In recent years we have worked consistently to reduce the environmental impact of our complex by pursuing all those ecological improvements that would allow such a result. With regard to the supply of electricity the entire complex is completely self sufficient and independent from the grid thanks to two photovoltaic systems.In addition to this we have basically wiped out the consumption of hydrocarbons such as LPG, natural gas, heating oil, thanks to the installation of a large and modern biomass plant, using timber from our forests;the heating system is integrated with latest generation of solar thermal panels. ... more less
