During a recent tour of Italy, my wife and I added three extra days in the Calabria region to visit the area in and around where my father was born (Maida, Italy). Being from the Philadelphia region of Pennsylvania I thought it would be interesting to stay Filadelfia, Italy while we explored. I came across the Residenza L'Antico Borgo Hotel on the internet and took a chance. In a word WOW. This is a GREAT place to stay and even better make new friends and become family members.
Go on their web site and see the photos. THEY DON'T DO JUSTICE!!! The decor is fabulous. With every turn, there is more and more to see. Lobby, breakfast room, dining room and guest quarters are terrific. Equally great is the food served. Breakfast is varied and fresh. Dinners were out of this world good. Portions, quality and service is second to none. Price is very reasonable and I can say we were more than pleased to dine at the hotel each night.
Now to the staff. Hotel manager Francesco was a real pleasure and I count him as a family member. We met his brother (don't remember his name) on our last night and and I felt truly among long lost family. These brothers are genuine and caring. I can't say enough how welcomed we were made to feel. The only thing disappointing about our stay was having to leave.
In every aspect, this is a GREAT place to stay and become family. If you're traveling to the region I cannot imagine finding a more warm, welcoming place to call a temporary home. Although satisfied with visiting the hometown of my father and his family, I'm sure I'll be longing for quite some time for a return visit to the charming village of Filadelfia and even more so to Residenza L'Antico Borgo Hotel.
