On our "touring Calabria" holiday we had booked one night in advance at Hotel Barbieri and just a half-hour after arrival we decided to stay one more night. We felt so welcome! It was our first vacation day and to open up the balcony door and look out over the old town of Altomonte, the mountains and valleys and feel the serenity, it was priceless. At arrival (between lunch and dinnertime) we were hungry and asked for something small to eat and they were so happy to help and made us a couple of lovely sandwiches.
The dinner in the evening was really good with lots of locally procuced food and nice wine from the area and on top of it so the waiter, Alfredo, was so accommodating and knowledgeable.
Returning "home" after a trip and be able to take a dip in the beautiful pool was a big plus. We have only nice things to say about this lovely hotel and really hope to come back someday!More
