Overview

Staying at Tenuta Ciminata Greco is a unique opportunity to step back in time and immerse yourself in the history of a manor house and estate that has been owned by its current family - the Greco family - since the 18th Century.

 

One of oldest and best known families in the area, with a coat of arms comprised of a golden Greek Y, a lock on a blue shield, a red stripe and three silver stars, the Grecos now welcome guests to their historic family property which is situated a few minutes from the centre of Rossano, a small town famous for its Codex and liquorice production!

 

This rustic accommodation has abundant, varying views for you to enjoy, from the Ionian Sea on one side to the luscious greenery, rambling olive groves and the chestnuts and pines of the Sila National Park on the other.

 

But you don’t just have to look into the distance for a visual feast, as Tenuta Ciminata Greco is extremely aesthetically appealing in itself. Meander around the estate’s nooks and crannies to discover the historic oil grinder, the polythematic library (where you can learn more about the history of the farmhouse) and even the stone walled family church dedicated to St. Joseph!

 

After all this heated historical research, you can head to the tranquil pool to cool off in the refreshing water, or recline on a sunbed and admire the natural and architectural beauty that surrounds you.

Rooms

All the rooms at Tenuta Ciminata Greco are located in ancient farmer’s houses on the estate, which have been lovingly restored so that they retain their antique charm.

 

From exposed stone walls to chunky wooden beams, there are plenty of original features shining through, alongside crisp beige and ochre fabrics and the contemporary comforts of TV’s and air conditioning. The 5 apartments have modern kitchen appliances for you to cook up your very own Italian feasts.

Dining

Every morning you will be able to enjoy a tasty breakfast buffet served in the estate’s fragrant garden or in the dining rooms of the old mill. The buffet boasts traditional sweet and savoury options to suite everyone’s taste.

 

For dinner, it is recommended to head into the nearby town of Rossano (10 minutes drive), where you will be able to sample the local cuisine at a wide range of ristorantes and trattorias.

Map

The Agriturismo Tenuta Ciminata is surrounded by countryside just 3km from the centre of Rossano.

In addition to the crystalline sea and beside its impressive heritage, the town of Rossano is equipped with state-of-the-art bathing facilities and family attractions like the Acquapark Odissea 2000 helping you combining sea, sun and culture.

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with Expertoitaly.read more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to Italy.read more
