Southern Italy region
Calabria has much to offer in unspoilt countryside and historic centres from the rugged Sila mountain range to the vast coastline boasting stunning beaches and ancient architecture plus brilliant sunshine all summer long. It is untouched by mass tourism yet has beautiful scenery being a photographers paradise with a fantastic shot to be had at every turn.
In the local Vibo Valentia area are Pizzo and Tropea, perched on cliff-sides, two of the most picturesque towns in southern Italy. They have a truly medi-evil feel with ancient dooor-ways, castles, cathedrals etc and offer magnificent views over the sea. From Tropea trips are available to Capo Vaticano and the Eolian Islands. Evening trips are very popular to the famous active vulcano Stromboli. Reggio Calabria is about one and a half hours away and well worth a visit, you can combine culture, museums, shopping and the beach.
The delightful local wine is a mere 2 or 3 euro per bottle, home made ice creams are world renowned and restaurants serve delicious fresh fish, pizza and pasta dishes. For home cooking the shops are full of very locally grown deliciously fresh fruit and vegetables.
Pizzo Beach Club is a delightful complex perfect for a relaxing holiday where you can enjoy walks through the forest, along the stunning uncrowded private beach, swim in the sea or pool and relax on the sun loungers.
Pizzo town is a straight 10km drive from the apartment and is full of charm steeped in culture and history. It offers lovely little restaurants with a variety of freshly caught fish daily.
Trains run from Pizzo down the coast stopping at the local towns and villages. Also to Reggio Di Calabria, Rome and many other destinations, car parking available at station.
There are lots of other pretty villages and towns to discover like Zambrone, Pargelia, Briatico where almost any day of the week one market or another can be found. The beautiful little hill-side town of Filadelfia, which is about 10 km from the apartment high up in the mountains, is definitely worth a visit for wonderful scenery and the local market on Thursday mornings.
