Business Profile:


The Colle degli Ulivi ( the olives hill) is located a few Km from the town of Mirto Crosia in the province of Cosenza on the Ionian Sea.

According to tradition the name comes from the greek "chrusea" (place of gold) due to the mines of gold and silver in the area. The town was almost completely destroyed by the earthquake in 379 A.D.


The agri farm offer the tourist a vacation in direct contact with nature to enjoy total relaxation in a peaceful environment surrounded by natural sounds, where the horizon is defined by a blurry line between the sea and the sky interrupted by soft rolling hills wrapped in their habitual colors of green and yellow.
