Southern Italy region
Calabria is located at the "toe" of the Italian peninsula and is characterised by its Mediterranean climate. It has a long hot summer season due to its southern location and excellent climate. For years the holiday pleasures of Italy's sun bathed southern region have been very popular with italian holidaymakers and are only now being discovered by the rest of us. It has coastline on three sides, mile upon mile of sandy beaches, rocky coves, spectacular headlands and breathtaking views.
The region of Calabria has managed to remain unspoilt and untouched by mass tourism, with many of the small hilltop villages still enjoying age old traditions and customs, adding to it's charm. We instantly fell in love with the region upon our first visit and hope that you will too!
Cuisine is important in the region of Calabria.There is primarily a diet of simple fresh pastas, homegrown vegetables cooked in a myriad of ways, and meats, particularly pork. Although pasta is important to all Italians, in Calabria it is treated with an almost reverence. Each city or town has it's own pasta specialties, from chewy fusilli, to various types of lasagne. Sauces include many seafood and meats, as well as various vegetables, with tomatoes playing an important role. Polenta is another important staple in the Calabrian diet, often replacing pasta at a meal. Polenta Verde Calabrese, is a wonderful dish served with cheese or sausages.
Whilst enjoying a holiday in the region of Calabria, activities include walking, hiking and bird watching in the national park, horse riding, rock climbing and skiing in the mountains, and various watersports such as sailing and scuba- diving along the coast.
Places to visit include the picturesque town of Tropea, a popular tourist attraction with its unique buildings and award winning beach which was voted Number 1 in the Times list of best beaches in the world in January 2007.
Reggio Calabria, the capital of the region, is known for its designer shops and has many bars and restaurants. It is a good place to enjoy the panoramic views of Sicily and the straits of Messina. You can visit The National Archaeological Museum, Aragon Castle and the Cathedral. For an exciting day trip take a ferry across to the island of Sicily.
There are an infinite number of tourist attractions in the Sila National Park region such as walks in the meadows, woods or lakes, visits to the tiny villages or big centres with their unique architectecture.
Calabria has something for everyone. Whether your ideal holiday in Italy involves either days of endless sunbathing on a beach or exploring the 'real' unspoilt Italy then you will love Calabria.
Pizzo Beach Club is located on Calabria's west coast, a 15 minute drive from Lamezia Terme International Airport and a short drive from the centre of historic Pizzo, unspoilt and famous for its imposing castle, medieval squares and narrow streets which overlook the shores of the beautiful Tyrrhenian Sea.
It is situated on the Sant'Eufemia gulf and facing Stromboli island. It has a variety of shops, restaurants and bars and breathtaking views of the sea and surrounding countryside. Pizzo is renowned for it's famous ice cream namely tartufo di Pizzo, a chocolate truffle ice cream. In addition there are endless other flavours which will satisfy the ice cream lover.
The main square is Piazza della Repubblica, where tourists can be found relaxing at an outdoor cafe and enjoying a gelato. Close to the square is the Castello Murat, the castle, built in the 15th century. It was here that Joachim Murat, king of Naples and brother in-law of Napoleon, was imprisoned and subsequently executed. Murat was buried at the San Giorgio church. The castle is open to the public, and is also a venue for entertainment and special events.
The town of Pizzo is on two levels, and the picturesque harbour is below the castle. This area has an abundance of inexpensive restaurants and bars and is the 'place to be' during a sun filled evening to relax and 'people watch' as the locals come out with their families to stroll along the promenade.
Pizzo is steeped in history and legends and walking around the old cobbled streets there is an excellent atmosphere. It is undoubtedly a fantastic place to discover and explore.
There are fairs and festivals which take place in Pizzo throughout the year. These are always exciting events, enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. There are many seasonal and arts festivals, with performances and stalls selling local produce. The weekly street markets are colourful and a must to visit if you like a bargain.
In the summer tourist season there is a tourist train called the Pizzo Express which takes visitors on a tour of Pizzo and to the Chiesetta di Piedigrotta which is another main tourist attraction. Legend has it that in the mid 1600s a ship was sailing off the coast of Pizzo with a crew of sailors when they encountered a violent storm. The captain,sure that the ship would not survive the storm, gathered his crew and prayed to the Madonna promising that if they survived the ordeal that they would build a church in her honor. The ship was destroyed on the reef but the captain and crew reached the shore unharmed. The sailors kept their promise and built an altar in an existing cave on the shore where local stone-cutters mining blocks of tufo (tuff or tufa) would take refuge from the rain. The church is down a flight of steps.Tickets should first be purchased from a bar on the road above, prior to taking the lengthy trail to it! The interior is ornamented with statues carved from the rock.
During peak season times at Pizzo Beach Club resort there is a shuttle bus to and from Pizzo town.
The resort comprises of:
*Swimming Pool with pool bar and water slide
*Reclining sun loungers
*Electronic gated entrance
* 24hr security
* 100 meters to the beach
The property is located a short 10 minute walk from a large sandy beach. The short walk is along a pathway through a beautiful pine and eucalyptus forest. The walk through the forest takes you to the beach which stretches 20 km from Pizzo to Lamezia. There are some lovely walks along the beach with beach bars along the route, and if feeling adventurous you can walk from the resort into Pizzo along the beach.
Pizzo is conveniently placed on the coastal road and railway for visiting Tropea and the rest of the Costa degli Dei. Hire a car, and you can tour the whole Tropea area visiting small picturesque coastal resorts and villages such as Capo Vaticano, Briatico, Parghelia and Nicotera. The provincial capital, Vibo Valentia, is a short distance inland from Pizzo and is worth a visit for its mighty castle which has superb views. There are a number of interesting inland destinations for travellers with their own transport. Alternatively, take the train from Pizzo on it's coastal route and witness outstanding scenery on your journey. Scilla, a very attractive fishing village and beach resort is around two hours by train. Reggio di Calabria can also be reached by train or car.
From this stretch of coast there are summer boat trips to the Aeolian Islands, with departures from Pizzo as well as nearby Vibo Marina. These are seven small inhabited islands off the north shore of Sicily. They are popular as a holiday destination, offering sunshine, beaches and natural beauty. The islands are grouped together as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, including Stromboli, off the shores of Pizzo which has an active volcano! Tourists are attracted to the dramatic scenery, hot mud baths, and the opportunity to hike up to the craters of Stromboli.

Ci è sembrato di essere "stranieri in Italia" visto che ci sono quasi esclusivamente russi e inglesi. La mia bambina si è molto divertita presso le due piscine, il mare vicino, basta attra… More
Mass tourism has not yet hit Pizzo and the surrounding areas. There are no organised children's activities at Pizzo Beach Club, however there is a well equipped playground and two swimming pools, one of which has a large water slide. In addition to this, there is a tennis court, football pitch, table tennis, gym and other facilities all on site.
There have been problems with the TV not working, it has been checked by an engineer and appears to be an exterior problem with the dish. This has been checked and unfortunately the problem could not be resolved ahead of the summer season. It is intended to sort this out in the near future. The guest was notified beforehand that the TV was not working, and advised to bring DVD's if required, as the DVD player is operational.
