Badolato is far from the tourist trail; it's yet to' become 'undiscovered'. A quiet, restful piece of old Italy, far from the lively lifestyle that's to be found 15 minutes drive away in Soverato.

Originally the house of the steward of the local Baron, the palazzo is now a luxurious residence from which to explore the history, beaches and mountains of this wondrous area. From the 4 poster in the master bedroom to the enormous hand-made daybed on the roof terrace, it's the ideal place to switch off from the hustle and bustle of modern life. There's a library of holiday reading, books on the history and features of the area, games and DVDs.

Further details indoors

The Palazzo can be sub-divide into two aprtments so two families can have their own bathroom, kitchen and dining area while mixing together when they wish.

Three large bedrooms with a fourth room which can be used as a bedroom or as a sitting room to the master bedroom if wished.

A huge kitchen / dining room / TV room with a long sea facing balcony forms the centre of the house. Marble worktops and marble stairs demonstrate the local craftmanship as do the hand-made windows, doors and furnishings.

Further details outdoors

Set in the award winning, beautiful medieval village with its narrow streets, where the village ladies still carry their goods on their heads, this is the Italy of centuries ago.

A population of a few hundred still has 13 churches visited by processions on feast days while the piazza, about 200 metres up the hill, is the site for concerts, opera and other events.

Southern Italy region

Calabria includes the narrowest part of Italy so there are two coastlines to explore with forested hills between them. A Mediterranian climate guarantees sunny warm summers and mild winters, although even this far south there are ski resorts in the hills for the winter sports enthusiast.

Part of Magna Grecia, greater Greece, this area was the coast that Ulysses sailed and the places described in the stories can still be found. In the mountains there are still villages where ancient greek is spoken today.

WIth Greek and Roman remains all over the area, Aragonese castles, Norman cathedrals and Byzantine churches this area is the ideal centre for those with an interest in History.

If you prefer the beaches, there are dozens of beaches within easy reach and, even in the height of summer, it's easy to find empty ones; or, if you prefer, the beach clubs with services, sun-beds and umbrellas are ther too. The sea is crystal clear and Europes largest underwater national park is off the coast with diving and diving schools easily accessible.

Seafood is abundant, as is local wine, and Calabrian specialities and cuisine is well worth exploring. Sicily is only a couple of hours away, by ferry across the Straits of Messina passing Scylla and Charybdis for classical buffs. and worth the trip.

Badolato Superiore

The twin villages of Badolato Superiore, on the hilltop, and Badolato Marina, on the coast, have religious and civic festivals throughout the year. Some, such as those at Easter, are spectacular expressions of religious traditions whie others, like the Tarantella festival held each year in the village bring the best traditional musicians from all over Southern Italy to Badolato.

There are concerts, opera and open air cinema in the summer while fireworks and food festivals happen in all the villages in the area. There is a medieval Palio at the beginning of August only a few kilometres away and, for those who want activity there is always something going on.
