In the peaceful coastal hamlet of Acciaroli, villagers enjoy the good life – and they enjoy it for a while longer than the rest of us.
More than one in ten residents make it up to (and well past) their hundredth birthdays, and without many of the problems that plague aging populations elsewhere around the globe.
It’s not because the villagers are especially health-conscious. Connoisseurs of food, drink, and tobacco, their zest for life’s pleasures is as famous as their longevity.
The story of Acciaroli was reported in several high-profile media outlets – including the BBC, The Telegraph, and The New York Times – and in September 2016, it caught the interest of David Spencer-Percival, our founder and CEO.
