When visiting Southern Italy, a trip to historic Calabria should be on everybody’s bucket list. With its incredible, medieval Santa Maria dell’Isola Church sat on an iconic clifftop overlooking the sea, it is a sight unique to the beautiful Italian coast.
Tropia is a small town on the east coast of Calabria and home to Villa Paola, a clifftop period residence overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. This upscale family-run hotel was a former convent that dates back to 1543 and features all of the benefits that you would expect in a luxury hotel. The hotel opens this season from 9th April 2020.
The hotel features 12 contemporary rooms and suites with epic views of the infamous ‘Coast of Gods’, along the Tyrrhenian coastline. Fitted out to a high specification, each room boasts luxury beds with rich linen sheets, L’Occitane products in the bathrooms, large walk-in-showers, air-con, minibar and WIFI, as you would expect in such a property. The stunning Hamman Suite has large sea-view windows, large lounge and a private mosaic hamman.
Italy’s passion for food is on show at Villa Paola with fresh seasonal produce grown in the kitchen gardens by local farmers, handcrafted pasta and flavoursome seafood from the region. The extensive buffet breakfast is served on the panoramic terrace with views that you will never forget. Those views are best enjoyed from the hotel’s incredible infinity pool or take a stroll in the gardens, read in the drawing-room or take a trip into the town to for more of those views, shopping, beaches and learn about the history of this incredible region.
