About this location
The Calabria region
The Southern Italy/ Calabria Region
Calabria is located at the southern tip of Italy and the property at Gioiosa on the underside of the sole. Calabria was isolated from the rest of Italy until recent times. The Aspromonte mountains provided an insurmountable barrier and access was only available by sea. This has resulted in a different character in both the people and terrain. Calabria remains unspoilt and still very beautiful.
The capital Reggio Calabria is an hours drive away and close to the Ferry port to Sicily and beyond. Sicily, with its smoking volcano fresh fruits and vegetables is a perfect day trip. You can even visit the hillside town of Savoca where the cafe scene in "The Godfather" was filmed. On the western coast is the seaside resort of Tropea.
Marina di Gioiosa Ionica
Many towns in Italy have a seaside location as well a separate development some miles inland. Gioiosa is no exception, having Gioiosa Ionica inland and Gioiosa Marina on the coast. Bergamotto development is between the two, giving excellent access to both the beaches and a bustling town. Within a short drive of the apartment is an enormous selection of restaurants, bars and ice cream parlours. Gioiosa Ionica has many ancient buildings stretching back to medieval times. Its bustling Sunday market allows the purchase of many fine regional products.
The famous hillside town of Gerace is close by with its' magnificent Cathedral. Weddings are a frequent feature here. Many of our guests have enjoyed a trip the the local waterfalls for a swim and barbecue. Most entertainment in Calabria are free. These include fiestas, beaches and swimming in mountain streams.
