Nowadays, the farm San Fantino produces extra virgin olive oil, wines (wine Jacine, Black Pinot and San Fantino Rosso), myrtle, limoncello, nocino, marmalades, wild flower honey, tomato puree and much more.

The propriety disposes of 30 hectares, divided into 5 different areas next to each other, with an ancient rustic palace, with a big farm and other 8 buildings of various dimensions, which will be refurbihed in the next years.

The principal farm, San Fantino, is located at the borders of the Medieval town of San Giovanni a Piro and 5 Km away from Scario, with its attractive port and seafront: it extends for 5 hectares in which an old farm is located and used as an inn, with seven bedrooms.
