An Individual Trip in Calabria

When you choose Calabria as destination ofyour trip, the risk is always to be beautifully surprised.
This is what it’s happened to Madame and Monsieur Wanner, 2 wonderful people from Swiss who trusted in us, Le Vie della Perla T.O., for the organization of 2 weeks tour in Calabria to discovering traditions, culture, food and wine.

They asked us just one thing: “We wish to travel at our pace, slowly, for enjoying fully all your activities and sightseeing! (Découverte et relax – Discovering and relax)

Here you are the brief tale about their rememberings and emotions of their individual tour in Calabria:

“Deux semaines pour visiter un bout de la Calabre.
De notre voyage, nous retiendrons tout d’abord l’accueil sympathique des habitants. L’organisation de la visite a été judicieusement faite par “Le VIE della PERLA” qui, entre autres, communique en Français.
La rencontre d’éleveurs et cultivateurs heureux de présenter leur savoir faire nous a fait chaud au cœur. Nous avons ainsi appris à cuisiner des pâtes faites maison, à reconnaître des plantes aromatiques, à partager les problèmes de fabrication bio d’huile d’olives, de la déguster avec un apéritif gargantuesque des produits du terroir.
Une autre dégustation des produits du terroir au milieu des muriers, nourriture pour les vers à soie, fut une superbe surprise.
Tous ces gens ont quitté leur métier de haut niveau pour revenir sur leurs terres. C’est magnifique de philosophie.
Ces activités ont été réparties dans le temps entre la visite de magnifiques villages souvent accrochés au flan de la montagne, de leurs églises et musées, ouverts pour nous. Sans oublier les parcs nationaux.
La Calabre bordée de mers offre un bon réseau routier et un centre attractif encore peu usité par les touristes souvent Italiens. Même si on ne comprend qu’une infime partie de ce qu’il se dit, la langue est chantante et nous berce.
Madame et Monsieur Wanner”

(“Two weeks for visiting a piece of Calabria.
The first thing that we keep with us of our trip is the cheerful hospitality of people. The organization of the tour was meticulously developed by LE VIE della PERLA, who speaks French, too. The meeting with breeders and growers, who were happy to show their skills, warmed our hearts. So we learned to make the handmade pasta, to recognize the aromatic herbs, to share the problems of the organic olive oil production, to taste it with a huge aperitif with typical products.
A wonderful surprise was another tasting with local products among the mulberry trees.
All these people had left their high level job in order to come back their land. What a magnificent philosophy!
All these activities were joined to the sightseeing of wonderful hamlets set on the top of the mounts, with churches and museums which were opened just for us. Without forgetting National Parks.
Calabria, which is surrounded by the sea, offers a good road network and an attractive inland still little visited by the Italian tourists themselves.
Although we did not understand that the slightest part of what they said, the language is so musical that it has rocked us.)
Signora e Signore Wanner”

This is what it means “travelling in a land where the hospitality is felt and is not an obligation!”
