Elena was so wonderful with us, helping to connect with relatives and taking us to the hospital/cathedral where my grandmother was born. Acri is such a beautiful town and Elena helped us see and experience the beauty of it all! Their B&B is absolutely gorgeous and has plenty of rooms and space for larger gatherings. It is outside of town and there are lots of turns and windy road to get there, but the seclusion and beauty are worth it for those looking for a relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle. She is very welcoming, and she and her parents grow and raise all sorts of Calabrian goodies on their property. But, Elena's love of the region's history, religious community and genealogy -- and her desire to solve family history mysteries! -- was what really made our stay the best ever. With her friends and other connections in town, she was able to introduce us to several distant cousins that took others in our line days to find. Thank you again, Elena, for the wonderful stay.
I could give Elena and her B&B Al Tetto Rosso a rating of as many stars as there are in the sky I would! To get to the B&B you drive up winding roads carved into the beautiful Acri mountainside with foliage all around. It was early November so the trees were rich with colors! The drive alone is breathtaking as you travel up to an altitude of about (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) feet where you can literally see the arch and heel of Italy's 'boot.' Not to mention the amount of stars you can see up there is something truly incredible and a must see for any star gazer! The Place itself is a beautiful, homey, and immaculate bed and breakfast on the second floor, above Elena's home. It features 5 bedrooms, two shared bathrooms, a kitchen with all new appliances, a dining area where you are served breakfast each morning, and a common area with a big comfortable couch and two matching arm chairs that's off from the kitchen. The common area has glass double doors that lead out to a balcony that wraps around the side of the building where you can sit and take in fresh clean air and overlook the mountains and town below. The common area also has a wooden China cabinet that displayed a ton of brochures on the area of Acri and things to do in the area; which included visiting the Sila Natural Park, hiking/nature walks, rafting, going to the beach, a modern art museum, historical churches with amazing architecture and paintings, cooking classes, and much more! My boyfriend and I were traveling through Italy for my cousin's wedding in Tuscany and during our trip I really wanted to stay in Acri for a couple of nights because my great grandmother immigrated to America from Acri. No one from my immediate family had ever come back to Acri so I was curious to see the land my ancestors were from. I expressed this to Elena and she began researching my great grandmother before we even got to Italy. I was totally surprised and awe struck when I arrived and she told me she was able to find my great grandmothers birth record as well as her sisters, and even found living relatives that were close by and wanting to meet me. We did not have a car, but Elena generously drove us to the library/ museum where the records were kept to show me and even became our own personal tour guide. She put in a lot of time and effort to find the birth records which would have been impossible for me to find by myself. I only knew a little Italian, not really enough for a conversation, but we were able to use (Hidden by Airbnb) translate to communicate the whole time which worked very well. After the museum she showed us the modern art museum and some of the historical churches of Acri; one of which even had the remains of Saint Angelo...
I have stayed at B&B Tetto Rosso several times and it is always a wonderful experience. My first visit was in 2018, when I went to Acri for the first time in order to do some research and document gathering for my family tree and my citizenship quest. At first I was unsure if I'd made the right decision, staying a bit out of the town in the country -- but now I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else because this place is quiet, comfortable, and gives a great sense of authentic daily life in Calabria. It's a converted family home, very comfortable, and I have slept very well there, every time! Elena is the perfect host -- kind, helpful, organized, and she really cares about her guests. She is also a wonderful tour guide -- not only has she shown me the highlights of Acri, but she has also helped me discover my family roots. She located and took me to my ancestral homes and important places, introduced me to distant counties, and helped me locate and get official verification for some very hard-to-locate but essential documents. I wouldn't not have been able to file my citizenship case if not for Elena's help. I recommend staying at B&B Tetto Rosso for anyone who wants a real Calabrian experience. It's great for people who want to explore the area by car. Perfect for hikers. And for those who are on a quest for genealogical information and connection, Elena truly provides a service that nobody else can. Highly recommend... and I can't wait to go back!

Vuoi scoprire i luoghi della tua famiglia di origine?

Sostieni il nostro progetto!

Il progetto vuole recuperare alcune case rustiche disabitate e riqualificarle, mantenendo per quanto possibile inalterate le strutture principali e l’aspetto esterno. Si tratta di un progetto ispirato dall’amore per il territorio e nato dal desiderio di dare nuova vita agli edifici rustici: perché proprio questi edifici sono testimoni di una realtà e di una cultura che rischiano di andare perse e di essere dimenticate, con un conseguente danno per la memoria storica della società moderna. Altro motore del progetto è stato quello di offrire agli acresi che vivono all’estero la possibilità di riscoprire il territorio di origine delle loro famiglie, ospiti nei luoghi che un tempo hanno visto come abitanti i loro nonni.

Le strutture da riqualificare si trovano nella zona di Acri:un luogo incantato alle porte del Parco Nazionale della Sila, riserva della Biosfera UNESCO. La riqualificazione permetterà di dare nuova vita agli edifici rustici, per cui può essere pensata in futuro una destinazione turistico – ricettiva. Un nuovo modo di vivere il turismo, fatto di luoghi dove immergersi in un’esperienza inclusiva, capace di creare un rapporto speciale con le ricchezze del territorio, storiche-culturali, ambientali e sociali – a contatto con la comunità locale e con le sue tradizioni, arti e misteri – per uno stile di vita sostenibile e salutare.
