Calacala Hotel: Where Nature Meets Luxury
Nestled on the island’s tranquil outskirts lies Calacala Hotel, a boutique retreat that seamlessly blends luxury with eco-conscious practices. As soon as I arrived, I was captivated by the hotel’s rustic charm, unique decor details, and the genuine warmth of the staff.
Farm experience with Eduardo: The Soul of Calacala’s Farm
As soon as we arrived to Calacala we were welcomed by Eduardo, a passionate farmer with a deep connection to the land. With a wide smile and an infectious enthusiasm, he showed us around the lush, organic farm which is the heart of the hotel. Eduardo’s love for the land was evident in every word he spoke and every plant he tenderly cared for.
Eduardo guided us through the farm, introducing an array of aromatic herbs, colorful vegetables, and luscious fruit trees. We strolled through the neatly arranged rows, and with each step, we felt more connected to nature. Eduardo’s dedication to sustainable and organic farming was inspiring, and I couldn’t help but be in awe of the knowledge he shared.
From Farm to Table: A Gastronomic Adventure
One of the highlights of this farm experience is the farm-to-table dining at Calacala’s restaurant. The hotel’s talented chef crafted exquisite dishes using the freshest produce we harvested with Eduardo just minutes before, straight from the farm. The flavors were really intense!
Our menu included a lemon salad, a tomato salad, pasta al limone and a bottle of wine. Everything was incredibly delicious, but the insalata de limone was the most surprising and refreshing dish, using Procida’s sweet lemons.
Beyond the farm experience, Calacala Hotel offered an oasis of relaxation. We spent a few hours lounging by the pool, away from the noise and the hustle. The overall experience was a reminder that in a fast-paced world, there are still havens where time slows down, and we can savor the simple joys of life.
If you find yourself yearning for an authentic escape, I urge you to discover the enchantment of Procida and the soul-stirring experiences that await at Calacala Hotel. Let Eduardo’s passion for the land and the farm’s bounty inspire you to reconnect with nature and savor the true essence of life.
Arrivederci, Procida! Ci vediamo!
