I stayed at Fodara for 3 nights end of September/beginning October. What a great Rif and what a great family that runs it - a bit like a home away from home with a distinctly Italian mountain atmosphere. The food is great and people just seem to drop in from everywhere - locals, walkers, tourists, bikers .... A very laid back pleasant little social hub .... Has to be one of my most favourite Rifs! Plus the setting is truly beautiful. Plenty of nice hiking and climbing all around. My room with bathroom and balcony was clean and comfortable. Loved my stay there, wish I had had the time to stay longer, and will definitely go back the next time I head to Italy.
