The Florimonte Family
The Florimonte family is from San Giovanni a Piro which is a town and comune in the province of Salerno in the Campania region of southern Italy.
The Florimonte family has a grove of first-class olive trees planted in the very best geographical location (on a hillside, in soil that is heavily composed of limestone and well drained). The olives are carefully hand picked instead of using machines and nets that make the job much quicker and less labor-intensive.
The olives are sent to press and made sure that they become oil in the bottle before the end of the day they are picked, producing the Famglia Florimonte ‘Bazia’ Olive oil.
The authentic fishing village touches the maritime wildlife park of porto Infreschi and Scario which lies on the edge of the Golfo di Policastro.
You will enjoy the amazing panoramic view into the wide bay of the Gulf and towards the mountains of Basilicata and Calabria, which seem to rise directly from the sea.
On days of clear visibility you are even able to see the famous statue of Christ in Maratea.
Typical Italian village life, the beautiful church with its separate bell tower – a campanile – is to be found on the main piazza of Scario. From there you can promenade under palm trees above the small, contemplative port and take part in the typical Italian village life in cafés, bars and restaurants.
During the Italian holiday months of July and August, the life in Scario takes on slightly mundane features. Wealthy Romans move into their villas on the hills above the village and numerous holiday guests line the otherwise sleepy port promenade.
