Stopped over for the night on the way to a wonderful holiday in beautiful Calabria.
What a great start to the holiday - a warm welcome, a great apartment, an excellent restaurant next door, and a brilliant breakfast.
Our chalet-type apartment had a sitting room, bedroom, and bathroom with Jacuzzi bath.
Each chalet had an outside seating area around a pretty, well tended courtyard.
Breakfast was excellent, and included a selection of pastries cooked by our host.
The evening meal in the restaurant was worth the trip.

Room tip: If you are travelling between northern and southern Italy, make this one of your stopovers.

On the way to Calabria/Sicily or just during summer to enjoy the surroundings, this is the place to stay.

1. Location
Castrovillari is in the way to Sicily, we stayed here one night to go on the next day and did not expect too much; but man were we wrong. Clearly this is not about the location; it’s about the hotel itself.

2. Service
The service is great, friendly and straight forward. We were greeted friendly (only us in the hotel that night) and our stay was made enjoyable wherever possible.
The “aperitivo” provided is very tasty, the wine is great - all locally sourced.

3. Room
The room is simple but enjoyable. I do not understand other travelers complains if they have to share the Terrasse; the door to the shared area is locked and massive; I would say safer than on a hotel floor.
The bathroom is spacious; the quality of sleep is good.

4. Breakfast.
The Breakfast is made individually for each visitor to its liking. I stay 220 nights per year in hotels but this was a breakfast beyond anyone’s expectation. The oranges came directly from the tree outside, the omelette with ricotta was something out of this world, the self made sweet cakes were fresh and exceptional. Considering that we were the only visitors, this was by no means expected or required.

5. Conclusion
This is a great place. The location is a challenge but the place is absolutely recommended and we will be back - we actually find some activities in summer around there just to be back in this place.

We only stayed one night at this charming boutique hotel but it was memorable. We were warmly greeted on arrival and shown to our exceptionally clean, comfortable, well-appointed room, which was really more of a suite. After enjoying a local wine as an aperitif in the hotel lounge we had a wonderful dinner at the associated restaurant followed by a quiet restful night. The Calabrian breakfast that we were served the next morning was outstanding. Considering the geniality of our hosts, the comfort of our accommodations and the quality of the service, we highly recommend La Locanda di Alia.

Good hotel if you travel by car and need to stop on the way to Calabria, located in Castrovillari, just few KMs from the motorway. They have private parking at hotel.
The staff is very kind and helpful, especially Biagio who works at reception, serve the drinks at the pool, make dinner reservation, make your cappuccino at breakfast and chat with you if you want.
The pool area is nice and really welcome in summer.
Rooms are in comfortable bungalow style and you get everything you need. They all have names and nice terrace with the garden view.
Breakfast is very good, typical home-made specialties from the region, with different cakes, juices and superb cappuccino.
The hotel has a lovely restaurant Locanda di Alia which is superb, so do not bother to go elsewhere!

Room tip: room with the terrace

I have been reading some bad reviews about the hotel and restaurant and I honestly feel that they have been in another place. Biagio and Antonella - at the hotel - were absolutely amazing and accommodated my requests as much as possible. The restaurant was awesome and very cheap for what we ate. It might not be perfect, but it is lovely and way better than fancy and expensive places. I will be back for sure!
