The Calabria region

The region of Calabria has managed to remain relatively untouched and escape mass-tourism, with many of the small hilltop villages and hamlets still enjoying age-old traditions and customs. Cuisine in the region of Calabria tends to be spicy and flavourful, featuring pasta, cheeses and some typically Greek ingredients such as honey and figs, and the area produces sweet white wine. 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.

Calabria is flanked by both the Tyrrenian Sea on the western side and the Ionian Sea on the east, with the towns on this coast having a strong Greek influence. The major resorts in the region of Calabria include Scalea, a typical seaside resort with plenty of tourist facilities and Tropea, one of the most beautiful towns with numerous sandy bays. Amantea and Diamante are both popular historic towns, and the capital of the region of Calabria is its' largest town, Reggio di Calabria.

Calabria is located in the southwest of Italy (the toe of the Italian boot) It deserves with its unbelievably rich history and culture to be more known than it is today. The nature, people, history and the traditions are what make Calabria what it is. Holidays in the region of Calabria offer a variety of different landscapes, from the stunning coastal areas, with craggy cliffs set against the brilliant blue seas, to the rugged mountainous inland, dotted with traditional villages, and even a small ski area.

Gerace is inland from the coastal town of Locri, but its elevation allows views of the sea. Gerace is sometimes called "the Florence of the south" for its art and architecture or the "city of saints" for its religious buildings.

If you wish to see one of the largest religious buildings in Calabria then you must pay a visit to Gerace's Norman Cathedral.

Tropea is a town in the Vibo Valentia province of Calabria. Tropea is well known for its miles of white sandy beaches and turquoise coloured water and of course it is nicknamed the home of the 'Red Onion'.

There is also an annual Blues festival in the centre of Tropea during September, live bands playing in an open air atmosphere most nights during the festival. Tropea dates back to the 17th century with cobbled narrow streets, charming cafes and a vast amount of souvenirs and fashion shops speckled along the winding and meandering laneways. It's great to just sit outside one of the cafes of an evening, have a frothy cappuccino and watch all of the Italians enjoying their evening stroll through the streets of Tropea.

Like a fractured metatarsal on the foot of Italy, the Tropea promontory juts out into the turquoise Tyrrhenian Sea, its superb white-sand beaches shielded by high cliffs. The town of Tropea pulls off a rare trick by managing to be both fashionable and unspoilt, a maze of steep narrow streets, Renaissance churches and yellow-stone palazzi.

Sunday Times put Tropea at number one spot in its 'Top 20 Beaches' report in January 2007.

Mini cruises to the Aeolian Isles depart from the port of Tropea/Capo Vaticano around 7:00am on a 350 seater air conditioned motorship. On this daily trip you get to visit Stromboli, the famous active volcano plus Lipar. Arrive back at Tropea around 19:15pm, a day well spent, don't forget to bring your camera and savour those magic moments.

Pizzo is another beautiful town just a few minutes drive from the apartment, famous for its Chiesa di Piedigrotta, a church completely carved out of the tufo rock near the beach. This Calabrian town is also famous for its tartufo, a special delicious kind of ice cream celebrated with a festival in Pizzo every August.

A visit to a renowned ice cream parlour, Enrico's, situated in Marinella, is a must for all ice cream lovers.

The Sila is the name of the mountainous plateau located in Calabria, it occupies part of the provinces of Cosenza, Crotone and Catanzaro, and is divided into the Sila Greca, Sila Grande and Sila Piccola ranges. The Sila houses the eponymous National Park. Camigilatello is a classical alpine village, a great spot for exploring amazing densely wooded areas during the summer, if you enjoy hiking then you will love the 3 mile climb up to Monte Botte Donato and take in the breath taking views of the Ionian and Tyrhennian seas. In winter, the Sila's becomes one of Italy's best cross-country skiing areas. The season can start from November right through to the end of February and with slopes as long as 7km in length, it is a great experience for both advanced and intermediate skiers alike.

Zambrone

Zambrone town offers every amenity and has a traditional piazza, bars, pizzeria, fresh meat from the local butcher, fresh fish delivered every day. Just at the entrance to the Amalfi complex you will find a local vegetable supplier, where you can purchase all locally grown fruit and vegetables and buy a large bottle of homemade red wine for only €2.50 Fresh cheese is delivered straight from the dairy twice a week.

Zambrone Marina has many seasonal bars and restaurants, with excellent food and a large selection of locally made wines available.

Priscopio has 2 restaurants, at La Collinetta and Pirapora in season.
