Tucked away in the Calabrian countryside with stunning panoramic views out to sea, Stromboli and the other Aeolian Islands and surrounding hills and vineyards, Il Casale is a small complex of only 10 apartments set within its own private, gated landscaped gardens and only six minutes drive from the nearest beach and a 15 minute drive to the beautiful seaside of Tropea. The apartments are in two blocks (five apartments in each) and with its own communal outdoor swimming pool it is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The pool is chlorine free and cleaned by a healthy UV water disinfection system which is extremely beneficial to those people suffering from respiratory problems and is also much kinder to the skin and eyes. Apartment 8 is a lovely spacious and tastefully furnished ground floor apartment furnished to a very high standard and fully equipped with everything you need to ensure you have a wonderful holiday.

SHOPPING: The food in this area of Calabria is amazing. Local fresh produce can be purchased direct from the farm just up the road from the Casale as well as the local bakers, butchers, fishmongers and mini markets in Ricadi and Spilinga. Ricadi is the home of the chipola (red onion) and many locals sell their produce at the side of roads.

There is a pharmacy in Ricadi and post office in both villages. The Vibo Shopping Centre is 15 minutes from the apartment in Vibo Valentia where there is a large Spar supermarket and department stores.

DAYS OUT: Tropea - 'The Pearl of Southern Italy';

Take a boat trip from Capo Vaticano or Tropea to Stromboli and the Aeolian Islands. The trip to see Stromboli erupt at night is awe inspiring;

Visit the shrine La Madonna della Fontana of Spilinga;

Pizzo - a beautiful medieval seaside town with its 15th century castle, Baroque church of St. George (1632) and the cave church of Piedigrotta. Pizza is also famous for its Tartufo ice cream;

Scilla - a beautiful fishing village on the Tyrrhenian coast with its 13th century castle;

Reggio Di Calabria - see the bronze statues at Riace in the Archaeological Museum;

Gerace for the splendid 12 century castle, cathedral and the Church of St Francis;

Stilo - visit the Cattolica, a Byzantine church;

Sicily - catch the ferry at Reggio Di Calabria;

Drive out to Aspromonte National Park an area of mountains and waterfalls;

RESTAURANTS: There are some very good local restaurants near to the apartment with typical Calabrian fayre. A must on your holiday is to sample the world famous Nduja, a soft, spicy hot, spreadable salami considered one of the most famous, if not the most famous, of typical calabrian foods and which is made in Spilinga. There are also numerous restaurants and pizzerias in Capo Vaticano. Tropea is a wonderful place for an evening out with lots of ristorantes and pizzerias in the maze of tiny cobbled streets and has a lovely vibrant atmosphere in the summer months. It is a wonderful place to visit during the daytime to sit and take a cappucino or ice cream and just watch the world go by. Local taxis are available and contact numbers are available in the apartment.

Southern Italy region

Only six minutes from the spectacular coastline of sandy bays and rocky coves of Capo Vaticano with the beautiful beaches of Grotticelle and Santa Maria and 15 minutes from the cliff top 17th century town of Tropea, with its white sand and turquoise sea and voted best beach destination by the Sunday Times, is the unique Il Casale Di Capo Vaticano.

If you are looking for peace and quiet in a beautiful setting with views to Stromboli and the Aeolian islands, yet within easy reach of local restaurants and shops, Il Casale is for you. Calabria is authentic Italy and bathed by the Ionian and Tyrrhenian seas. It has mile upon mile of sandy beaches, rocky coves and spectacular headlands. It is a largely mountainous area of outstanding natural beauty and a nature lover's paradise with four national parks.

The ski resort of Sila is is only 1 hour and 40 minutes from the apartment. II Casale is well placed to observe the fantastic sunsets over Stromboli from the private terrace or at nearby Il Faro (lighthouse) and to visit the shrine of La Madonna della Fontana of Spilinga. Visit the neighbouring medieval town of Pizzo, take a boat trip to the active volcano of Stromboli and Aeolian islands or even take the ferry to Sicily and Mt Etna from Reggio Di Calabria. A car is strongly recommended to explore and to make the most of this delightful unspoilt part of Southern Italy.
