The Southern Italy / Calabria region
The Calabrian region is a unique holiday destination and still relatively undiscovered. Enriched with history & culture there are many beautiful beaches and castles dotted along the coastline. Many fairs and festivals take place in Calabria throughout the year. They are always exciting events, enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. There are many seasonal art festivals with performances and stalls showcasing local delicacies. Visit the wonderful markets offering fresh produce on almost every day of the week. Religious festivals are celebrated by processions carrying venerated statues around the streets. The locals are very keen to share with you their heritage & passion for the region.
Pizzo is a traditional fishing port on the Calabrian coast and is a spectacular location. Set on a steep cliff overlooking the sea it has one of the longest coastlines of unspoilt beaches. This pretty historical town is just a short 10 minute drive from the apartment. As one of the most renowned historical towns in the Vibo Valentia province it has retained much of its character and charm.
The Pizzo / Pizzo Beach area
Pizzo has claimed to have been founded by colonists from ancient Greece. Its history begins with a community of monks, a fort, and a fishing village since 1300. The name Pizzo translates into bird's beak, and fits perfectly to the rock face extending into the sea. For centuries it was the custom to spread nets and corral tuna in the area called Centofontane, although this activity was banned in the 1970's. Legend tells us that in the areas of Piedigrotta and Prangi sea caves were used by Saracen pirates for capturing prisoners. In 1783 the town was almost destroyed by an earthquake, and again it suffered some damage from another earthquake in 1905.
Walk the cobbled streets and imagine how life used to be. Visit the Piazza Della Republic where events and social occasions take place during the summer months. Enjoy the spectacular views across the ocean overlooking Castle Murat. There are many restaurants and gelateria's to choose from which remain open at siesta. Try the local speciality Tartufo, an ice cream brick, covered in coco powder with a soft centre oozing molten chocolate, a must for ice cream lovers!
At the foot of the town lies the marina which is filled with bars and restaurants. There is a small beach, quite sheltered and ideal for small children. Whether going for a swim followed by lunch or an atmospheric evening meal this area will not disappoint. Towering above the marina is the imposing rock face with Castle Murat perched on top. Particularly atmospheric at night this area is a popular nightspot.
Pizzo Beach Club is a gated community with a reception located at the main gate. For help and advice on local tourist and transport information ask staff for details. Local shuttle buses run from Pizzo Beach Club to Pizzo town twice a day. Local taxis are available on request. Catch a train from the local station at Francavilla Angitola and enjoy the coastal ride to Tropea. There is also a seasonal tourist shuttle which travels from Lamezia, stopping at our neighbours, Club Med and continuing to Pizzo town, Tropea and Capo Vaticano.
Here is a list of places to visit:
MUSEUM AT CASTLE MURAT – 15th Century aragonese castle where Joachim Murat, the King of Naples and brother to Napoleon Bonaparte was held prisoner and assassinated.
PIEDIGROTTO CHURCH – 16th century church carved from stone and hidden in a cave located on the beach.
STROMBOLI - Experience the active volcano and walk up the rim of the crater in approx. 3 hours. Take a leisurely boat trip around the island at night to watch the firework display which can often be spectacular.
TROPEA – Famous for its sweet red onions this picturesque town is both fashionable and unspoilt. The Santa Maria dell'Isola is positioned on a strip of land projecting towards the sea. Sunday Times put Tropea as the number one spot in its 'Top 20 Beaches' report in January 2007.
SERRA SAN BRUNO - Carthusian monastery of Serra San Bruno established in 1091 and the Sanctuary of St Mary in the Woods which are both set within the dense canopy of a fir and pine forest.
LOCAL BEACHES – Visit the white sandy beaches with clear crystal waters located at Marinella, Vibo Marina, Briatico, Zambrone and Tropea. Travel further towards Capo Vaticano and discover Ricardi, a popular destination for Italian holiday makers.
FILEDELPHIA - This small market town was built in 1783 and is just a short distance by car. Located on the steep mountainside we advise you visit on a market day to truly appreciate the atmosphere.

We were amazed by the location, Pizzo is a beautiful town, it was great stepping back in time. The Apartment was lovely, just as the advert described. We found the on site restaurant convenient and we appreciated the free sunbeds on the private beach. The weather was hot and when we travelled up the coast we managed to find some amazing beaches. Tropea was a delight and we would have loved more time to explore the area. A truly memorable holiday, just wished we'd stayed longer

Our first time as a family to Italy and we found it great. Diffirent to the usual popular destinations and we had an experience of real Italy. The apartment was spacious and easily catered for 4 of us, it had all the amenities necessary and we were very comfortable. The location was a real surprise and Pizzo itself was breathtaking. The area provides easy access to other areas such as Tropea by car or train. The beach is a lovely 10 minute walk through a athmospheric forest area and what a great beach. We were lucky as late October we thought the weather may not be great but it was scortching every day.
