Not just a B&B, but a true home stay, where you enjoy the surrounds of a working olive & citrus orchard and each evening the guests dine with the Magliaca family, where a delicious four course meal is served and wine and aperitifs are included, all of which is sourced locally.
The house is over 400 years old and has been owned by the family since it was first built. It has been faithfully restored, with most of the original features still remaining. Our accomodation was roomy, although e bathroom was somewhat cramped, and we had exquisite views from our verandahs over the gardens and valley beyond.
Our hosts were most charming and went out of their way to make us welcome and to direct us to places of interest in the area.
Pettineo is a short distance from a number of coastal and mountain attractions, making Casa Magliaca are perfect spot to stay.
