Things to do

-Beaches. Capo Vaticano is considered one of the best destinations on Calabria’s Costa Degli Dei (Coast of the Gods), famous for its unspoiled white beaches, rock formations and hidden coves that can be reached only by foot or boat. At Capo Vaticano you’ll have a range of fantastic beaches to pick from, framed by a tall granite headland and boasting views of the Stromboli volcano out to sea.

-Boat trips. A range of charter tours are offered from nearby Tropea. You could head along the Costa Degli Dei, or set off for the Aeolian Islands and the legendary Stromboli. There are also regular trips to Sicily from Tropea. For something more local you could rent a pedal or motorboat to explore the beautiful indented shoreline around Capo Vaticano.

-Outdoor activities. If you arrive here in the cooler months of the year Capo Vaticano is an excellent base for long walks and mountain biking. The coast offers dramatic rock forms and breathtaking views, while just in from the sea the landscape becomes steep and covered with vineyards and thick, verdant woodland. In this small area alone there are more than 300 different plant species.

-Food and drink. Often used as a seasoning in local dishes is the Tropea red onion, which as the name suggests is grown exclusively on the farmland next to the coast here. Calabrian cuisine is known for its spiciness, which is down to the inclusion of the hot pepperoncino in stews and pasta dishes. Olive oil and citrus are also staples in this part of Italy.

-Reggio Calabria. One of the best reasons to make the drive down to this city on the very tip of Italy’s boot is to the see the stunning Riace Bronzes. These two ancient Greek sculptures date back 2,500 years and are housed in the Museo Nazionale della Magna Grecia and were discovered in 1972 by a tourist on a scuba diving trip.

The apartment was fantastic with everything we needed. We particularly enjoyed watching the sun set over Stromboli from the balcony. The kids enjoyed the garden immensely and Vincenzo's parents looked after us as if we were part of the family (even cooking home made pizza and chiacchiere). We couldn't have been happier! There is a good selection of beaches in the vicinity and the water is crystal clear. Thoroughly recommended!

The kitchen was well equipped (especially liked the bean to cup coffee machine). Unlike other villas we've had where the kitchen was stripped bare of 'essentials' left by other guests, this one was generous, with salt, oil, balsamic vinegar etc all there and the hosts gave us a bottle of wine, and there were plenty of cooking knives, tea towels, and all sorts of useful cooking equipment. There were a stack of beach towels, bags and umbrellas too. All in all it was the most generously equipped villa we've ever had. The views were stunning. Outdoor pool nice for a cool off. The only thing we'd have liked better was closer access to the beach - you could cut through the Blue Bay Hotel access road but it was still a 15 minute walk with a stiff climb on the way home. Do-able for a day on the beach but not so practical for a quick morning sea swim. Trattoria di Mimmo just a 10 minute walk away serves excellent pizza at great value, with amazing views of Stromboli.
