Apricus Locanda is a
little boutique hotel at the foot of the medieval village Apricale. The
light-filled rooms have views over the valley and
French doors open to balconies where guests can sit,
relax and enjoy the panorama.
we bought the
house in 2003 it was a ruin. After a big reconstruction
opened our doors for business in August 2004 and since
then we have welcomed guests from all over
the world. Many of whom have become regular visitors.
where did our name Apricus Locanda come from? The Latin word
ĎApricusí means exposed to the sun. And as our place is
facing South it is definitely ĎApricusí. "Locanda" typically
little family-run hotel with no more than 6 rooms. Our Locanda has 5 rooms all tastefully
We offer a rich breakfast buffet
- a little feast of fresh fruit, yoghurt, fresh baked bread
and croissants, cheese and charcuterie.
The honey and marmalades are exclusively made for us by
friends in the village. The honey from their bees is of extraordinary
quality. During cold days we serve breakfast in our breakfast room
with an open fireplace but most of the time our guests are
welcomed on the terrace.
you see around the Locanda is by our good friend Daniele Noel, who is also
in charge of most of the art exhibitions in the village's Castello della
the past few years we expanded the terraces and created a
garden. Our swimming pool opened in 2013.
