The place we stayed last night, Iumara Relax Resort, was fantastic. It’s quite new. The property manager, Paolo, was very friendly and helpful.
Paolo offered to set up a tour of the owner’s water buffalo farm for us. We jumped at the chance and got to do the tour this morning. The water buffalo are raised to be milked. The milk is used to make mozzarella cheese.
One interesting thing that we learned is that they use the waste from the caws to make all their own electricity! We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
After our tour we drove south further along the Calabrian coast. We stopped often to stretch and enjoy the views. Once we even stopped to eat gelato.
We are staying in a small B and B in San Lucido. We played cards before dinner and then walked around the town and found a coast side restaurant for dinner.
