Calabria is a region in the south of Italy situated on the ‘toe’ of the Italian peninsular and is surrounded by the Ionian and Tyrrhenian seas. With 400 kilometres of golden beaches and beautiful mountains not far away, this is the ideal place for anyone looking to relax in the sun or for the adventurous hikers willing to explore. Calabria is also a region of remarkable beauty with a history dating back to its role at the heart of Magna Graecia (Greater Greece). With friendly locals and a vast choice of southern Italian Mediterranean cuisine, Pizzo, the nearest town to the resort is definitely worth a visit.
Pizzo Beach Club Resort is 15 minutes drive from Lamezia Terme International Airport and taxis are available at the airport. There are weekly flights from Gatwick Airport to Lamezia Terme from April – October and flights from Stansted Airport operated from March – November. There are also a number of in-direct flights with airlines such as Easyjet and Ryanair via Milan, Naples or Rome.
5 Reasons to rent this property
Number 1…..The Fantastic Beaches!!
Recently the Times voted the beach at Tropea (about 30 minutes from the apartment) as the best beach in Europe!!However, this is just one example of the fantastic beaches in Calabria. Only 250m from the apartment through a beautiful pine and eucalyptus forest is a wonderful sandy beach complete with 200 sun loungers and 100 beach umbrellas for your exclusive use
Here is a great post I found recently entitled “The 5 best beaches in Calabria” for extra reading!
Number 2…….The Fantastic History
You could spend weeks in the region and still not find out all there is to know about the history of Calabria. Probably one of the most complex areas of Italy due to it being the most historic area of the country. General history is fascinating about the area from its Roman occupation through to its rapid expansion during the Norman period (resulting in many beautiful villages still in existence)
However, close to the apartments are treats like the Pizzo Caves which just have to be seen to be believed. Truly beautiful.
Number 3……..Fantastic Weather
The Calabrian winter is cool and there is moderate rainfall which only means that in Summer, when it is simply Divine, the area still remains beautifully green and rich with flowers. Summer temperatures regularly hit the 30s and the evening sun is simply fantastic up on our roof terrace.
I have been there in February and been in shorts and t shirts while the temperature has been in the 20s. Definitely a difference to home that’s for sure!
Number 4…….Fantastic Food
There is not a lot I can say here as the food in this region is simply delicious as you would all expect. Italian food is wonderful at the best of time and the usual suspects are here in abundance. However, this is a great area for fresh fish and hence some of the dishes are a wonder if you are a fish lover. Its all pretty cheap as well. To give you an idea a Margarita pizza in Pizzo Town Square will set you back about €4 which is about £3. Fantastic value given the setting……
Number 5………Fantastic for Families
Being a father of two myself I can only tell you this from personal experience but how better to advise. I have never been to an area so friendly toward children. You will get stopped in the street with lots of cheek pinching (the babies by the way) and if your children have fair hair you should see the reaction. It is really lovely to see a way of life so devoted to children in every manner of their lifestyle. It is sincerely a joy to take children to this area of Italy.
Though there is a daily shuttle bus service available from the resort to the nearby town of Pizzo, we recommend to hire a car at the airport. There is so much to see and explore in the area! The beautiful beaches on both Tyrrhenian and Ionian costs, Aspromonte, Sila and Pollino national parks are definitely worth a visit.
The local mini-markets are a must for an authentic Italian food lover. There are several supermarkets nearby for your everyday needs and for some serious shopping head for Due Mari: http://www.centrocommercialeduemari.it
