Stignano Mare is a small exclusive yet friendly gated community situated 10 minutes outside the historic town of Caulonia and only 1hr 15min from the Airport of Lamezia. This two bedroom ground floor, air conditioned apartment with dinning balcony and private garden with BBQ, seating area and small paddling pool, is luxuriously furnished to the highest standard and only a short walk/drive to the beach.

Situated in a quiet village, surrounded by olive, pomegranate and orange trees, close to the beach-0.5m with a traditional Italian Bakery on the corner plot, open fruit and veg stall 25m along the road and other shops close at hand. Pizzeria restaurant 100m away. Supermarket less than 1km.

Activities:- Cooking course/Sailing Trips/Beginners Italian course with picnic in the mountains

View away from the coast, looks up into the beautiful mountains which nestles many quaint traditional Italian hill towns, packed with history and warmth.

The fragrance of orange and the tangerine blossom, the intense aroma of southern Italy, the shade of centuries-old olive trees, the silence of the country interrupted only by the chirping of crickets.

A wonderful contrast that reflects all the austerity and the gentleness of Calabria and its people.

The Calabria region

Calabria is the beautiful and unspoilt Southern region of Italy - one of Italy's best kept secrets. The wonderfully clear turquoise Thyrrenian sea is calm and warm, with numerous quiet beaches presenting plentiful opportunities for sunbathing and swimming.

The local residents are friendly and welcoming, allowing you to relax and enjoy your holiday in the sun.

Plentiful bars, restaurants, pizzerias and ice cream parlours offer wonderfully fresh local cuisine at fantastic prices.Summer evenings- Open markets line the streets, with fun rides for the children.

It’s a vacation of discovery from culinary delights of the local cuisine to water sports (scuba diving, dinghy) to cultural excursions which Calabria is full of, such as

…Cathedral of Gerace, the Byzantine”Cattolica” of Stilo,excavations at the Greek site of Epizephyrian Locris, the world class National Museum of Reggio Calabria… but also the life of the region itself with its ancient traditions.

Stignano Mare

The beach nearest to the apartment is a 15 minute walk(2 min by car) and is both sand and pebble, the use of this beach is free. There is a small cafe and pedlo hire.

Caulonia is the next largest beach at the lido, sunbeds, parasols and pedalos are offered for hire, other water sports are also available here.

The piazza in the centre of Marina di Caulonia has welcoming restaurants, trendy bars and shops. Here you can enjoy gourmet food, pizzas, freshly caught seafood, local wines and cheeses, delicious gelato and patisseries.

A trip to the beautiful medieval town of Caulonia Superiore is well recommended, to visit the many churches especially the splendid church of St Zaccaria and experience the spectacular panoramic views. Whilst there you can relax with a cool drink in one of the several piazzas and appreciate the local culture.

ATTRACTIONS

"A taste of real Italy"

Thanks for letting us stay at your apartment, we had a wonderful holiday with the kids - beaches clean, sea crystal clear, food kids love with unspoilt rural villages (maybe how the more crowded resorts of the north once were!). Great location, just over an hour from Lamezia airport. Enjoyed trips to Caulonia and Gioiosa for restaurants and bars.
