“Happy is the man who makes others happy”: is the sentence printed on the wall of the main building by the sundial, which welcomes anyone who crosses our threshold and finds himself in an old-time world. This is how we want to welcome our guests, trying to make them recall the most̀ authentic values of life, nature, pure air and flavors of the past.

Dattilo is located on the Ceraudo family farm, with its organic winery and oil production and its amazing relais. Guests have the opportunity to relax in our renovated gardens designed for an immersive experience of rest, with a new swimming pool suitable not only for recreation but also for exercise.

The property is set among the vineyards and olive trees, within a 17th-century baronial tenement with a wine cellar and an oil mill. Our rooms all look to a little courtyard with a tiny, historic church.

the location

The sea is so close that the morning breeze carries its scent. On summer evenings, on the gentle ridges sloping toward the blue, you can hear the delicate echo of the riptide.

Our estate is nestled in a 60-hectare plot of land that includes vineyards, olive groves and citrus orchards that stretch all the way to the Ionian coast. We can offer you a pleasant stay, full of amazing flavors and rest, surrounded by nature.

The facility includes an outdoor swimming pool available for our guests, perfectly blended with the landscape, where you can enjoy moments of peace. The relais is set in a private area of more than 60 hectares of greenery. The apartments and rooms have independent entrances and do not share common spaces.

In ancient times, the area (contrada) in which Ceraudo is located was called Dattilo, after an ancient God of Greek Mythology.

From a historical point of view, this area is really special: we are in the heart of the region that was called Enotria, from the Greek “oinotron,” “vine pole.” According to Greek historians, the cultivation of vines in Italy began right here, thanks to the landing of brave commanders who left Athens with vine shoots to plant. Contrada Dattilo, in fact, is just a few kilometers away from the Lacinio Promontory of Capocolonna, the heart of Ancient Kroton.


The interior design of the rooms is sophisticated and in line with the minimal style of the Calabrian countryside. Local ceramics, resin, marble, all in the tones of gray, white and dark red like the land that surrounds the estate.

The amenities are completely organic and biodegradable with a set designed for a daily beauty routine. The courtesy lines made available to the guest inside the rooms are intended to bring to life the most intimate and sensory experiences. First the sight, then the smell and finally the feeling of the product on one’s skin; these all create additional, pleasantly and indelible memories, forever linking a scent and a particular feeling to a place.

Upon arrival, guests are greeted with a welcome pack offered by the company. In the morning, our gourmet breakfast is made of seasonal fruit from the orchard, organic homemade juices and jams designed especially for artisanal toasted biscuits from Caterina’s signature line. We also have savory options, with a selection of local cold cuts and cheeses produced by virtuous manufacturers who respect the supply chain and the territory.
