Southern Italy region
Calabria is among the most charming and unspoilt regions of South Italy, with a combination of high mountains, extended forests, historical towns all surrounded by crystal clear seas. Calabria is an experience not to be missed. The Calabrian gastronomy is a great experience for its combination of traditional fresh products and inventive versatile dishes.
A new motorway runs west down the coast, the A3 linking with the A1 up into northern Italy. The road puts you within easy reach of resorts that are fun and lively in the summer, deserted in the winter. On the very toe of Italy, facing Sicily across the Strait of Messina, lies Reggio di Calabria. This is the provincial capital and the largest town in Calabria. There is a prettily restored seafront and promenade gazing at Messina and Sicily across the Strait. Drive round to the Ionian Coast during your Calabria vacation and the coastline gets more rugged. There are many Greek and Roman remains, and untouched beaches shelter beneath precipitous roads clinging to the scrubby mountainside.
Aspromonte - the southernmost tip of Italy's peninsula, and with spectacular mountain walking and scenery.
Cosenza - one of the few big towns (and it's not that big) in Calabria. A pretty and charming old quarter, and handy for the nearby Sila mountains, with their walking and winter sports.
Situated in the beautiful coastal town of Marina di Caulonia. Perfectly located in a pretty town full of traditional Italian cafes, bars and restaurants, one of the finest beaches on the Ionian coast and a relaxed, peaceful lifestyle with everything you need right on your doorstep.
Marina di Caulonia is a lovely area with beautiful beaches where you can relax in the sun or enjoy various water sports in its pristine waters.
The local beach is 10-15 minute walk from the apartment and the activities available vary depending on the time of year you are visiting. In the summer months (end July and throughout August) you will find a variety of beach bars, restaurants, water sports and plenty of sun loungers to hire. Out of season you can enjoy sunbathing in warm sun with the whole beach practically to yourselves. The local beach offers a mix of shale and soft sandy beaches. Just pick your preferred spot and relax.
The apartment is approximately 60-90 minutes drive from Lamezia airport. A train station is available in the town centre and runs the full length of the beautiful coastline. Whilst you can enjoy the apartment and area without a carnhowever we would recommend hiring a car to appreciate the beautiful towns, beaches, areas of historical interest and National Parks.
Feudo Montalto Golf Club is situated in Limbadi which is approximately a 45 minute drive from the apartment.
Skiing Gambarie d'Aspromonte – (approx 45-50 minute drive from the apartment) offers a unique opportunity, standing on a beach and on a ski slope within the same hour. This is a small ski resort with 4 ski lifts (2 chair lifts, 2 surface lifts) and it does boast a very impressive 670 metres (2198 feet) of vertical descent. Gambarie in Aspromonte has 5 pistes.
