Lavender Farms in Calabria Italy

Lavender Fields of the Parco Pollino National Park at Morano Calabro

Cities and Towns in Calabria

Calabria is home to some some incredible natural landscapes and the Lavender Fields located inside the Pollino national park are no exception.  During the summer months visiting these gardens inside the park can make for some incredible photo opportunities as we believe we captured, though visiting is stimulating for all of the senses not just the eyes.

Lavender is a plant native to North Africa and the southern Mediterranean.  Italy and France in Europe are some of the largest producers of the herb though other counties like Croatia and many others also produce the herb for its medicinal properties which are widely known to assist in a variety of ways, including with: Anxiety, fungal infections, respiratory issues, wounds, lowering blood pressure levels and many others.  It also helps as a natural disinfectant, cleaning aid and is used in many topical cosmetics.    

Visiting the park inside the national Pollino park in Calabria is not an area accessible by public transit and so driving here is a necessity and we do recommend coming with an English speaking driver guide who can take you around to some of the very interesting towns and cities like Morano Calabro and Mormanno which are outstandingly beautiful  within this valley of the Pollino national park, where you can also experience numerous organic cheese factories, wineries and rich agricultural production which is totally organic.  Interacting with producers is a challenge since for the most part in this region, many Calabresi do not speak English. Having a guide is really worth it.

Not only this, although visiting the fields of lavender themselves are free, they are located down some narrow back roads and the shop that sells the natural oils and a variety of different products like candles, honey, jams, soaps and other wonderful items is only open in the morning and the afternoon in the summer months they do not open until after 15:30 PM and so you have to plan your day accordingly.

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
