A message from the owner:
"Welcome to Calabria (tip of the toe), a land surrounded by the clearest blue waters in Italy and located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea.
Our shores lay testimony to five thousand years of history, from the ancient Greeks to the Romans and Normans whose castles and churches have resisted a thousand battles to bear witness to our great culture.
Ours is a land of unparalleled beauty where some of the highest mountains in Italy fall into the clearest blue waters in Europe. Tourism in Calabria has enjoyed the status of Italy's top new destination for the past seven years. Families, lovers, historians, sports enthusiasts and, of course, gastronomes all find the very best Italy has to offer. And here, it's all still REAL Italian...
As a place to live or visit, Calabria is a vibrant Region whose charm is exceeded only by the remarkable people who call it home; and while the times are changing, the friendliness and hospitality that recall a simpler era haven't.
Those of us that have lived here consider ourselves stewards of this magnificent land and since Ulysses mythically embarked on our shores millenniums ago, we have enthusiastically and proudly shared it with our visitors.
Please accept this invitation to Calabria, to The Mediterranean Dream. "
