We had a lovely stay for a week. There were 10 of us and 3 generations of family. Stefano and all the staff were really nice. We enjoyed breakfast and had dinner 4 times in the restaurant. The food on the dinner menu was excellent. Simple but tasty. Stefano was also really helpful in recommending restaurants to go out to and helping us book. The room was fine. It was large and airy. The bed was also fine as was the ensuite bathroom. Our room could have taken a family of 5. The pool was really good, especially in the hot weather. Lots of loungers around and a nice refreshments hut. WiFI wise it was a bit patchy. There was some wifi by the pool and some by the restaurant but not in the rooms.

Recent UK June halfterm trip to Zio Christoforo with our kids, 10 and 7. We really rate this place. Its friendly, clean, quiet and comfortable with an amazing pool and a great restaurant. The family who own it are lovely and always greeted us with a smile. the daughters were really friendly with our two boys and all the staff made the effort to be super welcoming even if we didn't share a language! The farm is pretty idyllic and from what I could see the vast majority of the food in the restaurant was sourced from there. Massive portions of tasty Italian food for Breakfast and Dinner on our Half Board deal. At least 4 courses for each. The local Vino is also very drinkable and very reasonably priced. The accommodation is simple but modern and can be kept cool with shutters and air-con. Lots of lovely planting everywhere. The pool is an absolute joy and our kids thought it was the best thing about the trip. Casel Velino has facilities and there are lots of lovely, clean beaches nearby. We went to Paestum for a day which I thoroughly recommend but it was an eat and swim holiday rather than a cultural visit. We drove and probably needed the car. Not sure I'd recommend hiring one from Naples airport though.... my word that was an interesting driving experience. If we did it again I might get the train from Naples and hire a car nearby.

We were at Alessia's beautiful farm hostel in October 2021, with 13 persons - three families with their kids and teens. Alessia welcomed us like family and we felt very comfortable right away. They really cared for our well-being and in particular, the food was excellent and authentic, both the breakfast and the great dinner. Don't miss to taste the wine and bring home the olive oil directly produced at the farm, it's delicious. We lived in the house on the other side of the small street which is located near the swimming pool. Although it was already October and really cold at night, our hosts were so friendly to keep the pool open what was a great fun for the kids. The houses/appartments are comfortable and very clean, although rather simple - but I don't expect a luxury appartment on a farm! However, for those looking for an authentic place to calm down in nice rural region, this is definitely a great place. Thanks a lot, dear Alessia, Stefano and team, for six wonderful days at your farm. Whenever we'll be back in the Cilento region, we'll come around!

Ignore the negative reviews. Stefano and his wife were lovely hosts and the agriturismo zio christogram is a charming rustic retreat ideal on our cycling trip. A great evening meal with lots of home sourced product. When my daughter took ill Stefano took the trouble to give us a lift to the nearest railway station to catch a train up to Naples for our flight home.

We travelled a very long way to stay at their single story house called La Cassetta. 7 nights in September half board €840. Having read good reviews we were shocked by what we found. We arrived in late afternoon, tired but optimistic. This did not last long. On the weed infested patio where 2 broken, wooden deckchairs and a grubby drying rack. The entrance loggia had 4 chairs with broken seats, a plastic table cloth repaired with band-aid tape and a pile of dried up cleaning cloths was stuffed into a wall shelf. The entrance door was half glazed, dirty glass. The room described as part kitchen part sitting room had a single bed in it and again a disgusting plastic table cloth on the table. The fridge had mould, even mould in the ice cubes in the freezer part!! The pictures on the wall showed frames thick with dust. Everything to do with the kitchen was sticky and grubby. Broken draws …. Nowhere that felt clean or where food could be stored until the fridge was cleaned. The Internet service proved to be useless and we had to use our phones instead. We changed the pillow cases with the spare ones we brought, to discover stained pillows, did what cleaning we could then went to have the evening meal we had paid for. Following the disappointing meal, we decided to speak to the lady proprietor. She worked as a teacher and would come and see us the following morning after work. Breakfast was a mean offering and no chance of an espresso coffee!! The husband sat as we entered the breakfast buffet but no greeting. Our feelings so far was of shock and disbelief. 30 years of holidays in Italy, 15 years living there, we had never ever come across such a place. We felt they had given up trying. The meeting with the lady owner was stormy. We should have packed up and left but we had paid a significant deposit which she would not refund. She wanted to charge us the total sum and had our credit card details to do so. It was agreed Anna would clean, no meals and we would pay in cash €300 making the cost of our stay just under €500. We regretted not leaving but an effort was made and a new plastic tablecloth and mat for the bathroom was provided. 2 white plastic garden chairs and the gardener cut the patio weeds. Unfortunately whilst washing their soiled mattress cover Anna would not sleep on, she fell ending up in hospital. We have posted photographs of the accommodation which speak for themselves.

The gentlemen were very old and very large, they had difficulty walking to reach the restaurant. They asked not to have breakfast and dinner anymore They asked not to have breakfast and dinner anymore. For the breakfast they wanted croissant e brioche, and no our wonderful genuine products (tomatoes, jams, goat cheese, homemade tarts, ecc). For the dinner they wanted fast food, and no our wonderful vegetables at km 0 and homade pasta (ravioli, fusilli, cavatielli. The lady booked a rustic house and wanted to turn it into a suite He always wanted something: 2 new chairs, new tablecloths, new carpets, new lamps, etc. We have always given you everything with great patience, but the lady has always been nervous. They only paid what they told them and no as from e-mail. They were old Germans different from our usual German friends, best regards

What a fantastic place, superb hosts and amazing food. We stayed for 2 nights during a cycling tour of the cilenta national park and enjoyed everything. After a day cycling the pool was very good and in a nice quiet peaceful place. Thank you to everyone we would recommend this to anyone. Julie and David, Harrogate, Yorkshire, UK

The place is truly beautiful. It is away from the noise, with a big piece of land. The rooms are decent, ours had a terrace with an amazing view, you could even see the sea. There are many animals - goats, which you can go and see how they are milking the goats, cows, goose, even water turtles that swim towards you when you appear to say hello. We went to see how the owners make ricotta cheese (which is served for breakfast and is absolutely my no 1). Felicia the manager is a dear, she is always there to help, very warm with great knowledge of the area. I loved her recommendations for lunch! the place itself is beautiful and so peaceful. But there is a highlight, something that makes this place a must stay for vacation. It is an amazing swimmingpool. The swimmingpool looks like from some catalogue of top hotel. I was not sure, how is this possible, when I looked at the pictures before going to Zio Cristoforo. My kids loved the swimming pool, the animals and were crying when we were leaving! I enjoyed the place, the food, the kindness of the hosts, who had a "can-do" attitude, which I admired very much. I highly recommend this place for vacation, especially for kids!
