My partner and I spent two nights there because we attended a wedding nearby. We stayed at the Lattaria, which is a separate building from the main one (where the restaurant is located). This is a typical Italian agriturismo though not located in the most fortunate place in Italy. Nature nearby is lovely but the very town of Vivaro is pretty depressing in itself - especially if the weather is bad, which was the case when I stayed. The room was very spacious but basic. Large bathroom with no fancy decorations or traditional/rustic pieces of furniture that would give it some personality. Though it was June, the temperature outside was some 10 degrees and we found ourselves in a freezing cold room where the heating system got started only after our arrival. They were expecting us so it would have been nice to warm up the place a bit before. Gelindo and his staff are amazingly kind and fun, the food at the restaurant was really good and one can taste the actual home-made flavors. We got complementary prosecco and little biscuits at any occasion, which was really nice. The overall environment at the restaurant is in between a farm house with guests and a gathering of the local bingo gang. But it is nice and the kind manners of the staff really make the difference. It was nice to try something different, I recommend it if you happen to be in that area for other reasons. Also, my impression could be totally wrong - maybe the place is actually stunning in the summer.
