Hotel Poggio del Sole is located on the hilltop of land which has been passed down through generations of the Colella family. Surrounded in natural beauty, sharing the perfect balance between the mountain and the sea, the location is tranquil and the gardens lush and abundant with indigenous vegetation.
Lemon trees come alive in the summer and give over to oranges and mandarins in the winter. Bouganvilleas creep along the fencing and stone walls splashing shades of purple into the atmosphere. Kumquat plants can be found around the swimming pool area and around the hotel terraces.
Mamma Tina's vegetable gardens interlace the low lying terraces and a variety of pear, apple and berry fruit trees lie in and between. Chestnut and walnut trees also occupy their fair share. The Colella Olive Groves lie where the landscape scoops up from the valley and can be toured on request. The vineyards accompany another part on the island.
Friendly tours of the gardens for all green fingers can be arranged on request. Olive groves and vineyards can be viewed on request. Enquire about our Cooking and Limoncello liquer making lessons.
