The Village

The Borgo – old quarter

Built against a rising hillside, this is authentic Italy, where little streets and alleyways lead to private squares and across bridged pathways in what is an enchanting patchwork of tightly packed, vividly coloured houses.

Pass through the little arch that forms the lower approach to

Calitri’s historic quarter and you come upon an authentic little jewel of rural Italy, where local corner shops, cosy little restaurants and even a lovely Palazzo (palace) lay hidden among the homes.

This is a place where artists’ studios and galleries mix with washing hanging out to dry. At night, the stylish, sophisticated wine bar comes alive with ambient music, local snacks and stunning views from its panoramic lounge terrace.

Calitri – New Town

In contrast with many pretty country villages Calitri is not a ghostly hamlet, but a lively rural village of several thousand souls where life follows a gentle pace dictated by the seasons. A perfect place to relax and recoup from a busy lifestyle, it offers an authenticity and focus on the simple yet good things in life that is refreshingly far removed from the noisy, spoiled places we these days call tourist resorts.

Calitri is a real Italian country village where you’ll enjoy good Italian food based on fresh local produce, rather than places selling English breakfasts or curries. Not jaded by mass tourism, the local people will invite you with sincerity to share their quaint little restaurants, cafés, bars and pastry shops.

Among the shops you’ll find all amenities, including an Internet café and several banks, but also delicious, fresh ice cream, wonderful pizza, local grocery stores (and a weekly market) full of the region’s delightful produce, and restaurants where the fayre is as good as it is reasonable in price. Little bars provide a night time venue, while there are also hotels with swimming pools, not to mention a host of local festivities, hiking and sports activities in the area. Above all, Calitri is a great base from which to explore the region’s many sights and experiences.
