Capo Vaticano Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Il Casale Di Capo Vaticano - Beautiful Apartments in a Fabulous Location

Tucked away in the Calabrian countryside with stunning panoramic views out to sea, Stromboli and the other Aeolian Islands and surrounding hills and vineyards, Il Casale is a small complex of only 10 apartments set within in its own private, gated landscaped gardens and only six minutes drive from the nearest beach. The apartments are in two blocks (five apartments in each) and with its own communal outdoor swimming pool it is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The pool is chlorine free and cleaned by a healthy UV water disinfection system which is extremely beneficial to those people suffering from respiratory problems and is also much kinder to the skin and eyes. I have two apartments for rent both of which enjoy fabulous sea views - a one bedroom ground floor apartment which sleeps 4 and a first floor two bedroom apartment which sleeps 6. Both apartments are tastefully furnished to a very high standard and fully equipped with everything you need to ensure you have a wonderful holiday.

SHOPPING: The food in this area of Calabria is amazing. Local fresh produce can be purchased direct from the farm just up the road from the Casale as well as the local bakers, butchers, fishmongers and mini markets in Ricadi and Spilinga. Ricadi is the home of the chipola (red onion) and many locals sell their produce at the side of roads.

There is a pharmacy in Ricadi and post office in both villages. The Vibo Shopping Centre is 15 minutes from the apartment in Vibo Valentia where there is a large Spar supermarket and department stores.

DAYS OUT: Tropea - 'The Pearl of Southern Italy';

Take a boat trip from Capo Vaticano or Tropea to Stromboli and the Aeolian Islands. The trip to see Stromboli erupt at night is awe inspiring;

Visit the shrine La Madonna della Fontana of Spilinga;

Pizzo - a beautiful medieval seaside town with its 15th century castle, Baroque church of St. George (1632) and the cave church of Piedigrotta. Pizza is also famous for its Tartufo ice cream;

Scilla - a beautiful fishing village on the Tyrrhenian coast with its 13th century castle;

Reggio Di Calabria - see the bronze statues at Riace in the Archaeological Museum;

Gerace for the splendid 12 century castle, cathedral and the Church of St Francis;

Stilo - visit the Cattolica, a Byzantine church;

Sicily - catch the ferry at Reggio Di Calabria;

Drive out to Aspromonte National Park an area of mountains and waterfalls;

RESTAURANTS: There are some very good local restaurants near to the apartment with typical Calabrian fayre. A must on your holiday is to sample the world famous Nduja, a soft, spicy hot, spreadable salami considered one of the most famous, if not the most famous, of typical calabrian foods and which is made in Spilinga. There are also numerous restaurants and pizzerias in Capo Vaticano. Tropea is a wonderful place for an evening out with lots of ristorantes and pizzerias in the maze of tiny cobbled streets and has a lovely vibrant atmosphere in the summer months. It is a wonderful place to visit during the daytime to sit and take a cappucino or gelati and just watch the world go by. Local taxis are available and contact numbers are available in the apartment.

Hi my name is Pam and I am married to Roy and have two children, Andrew and Emily. As a family we have had many holidays in different countries but fell in love with Calabria on a holiday to Tropea in 2007. In 2009 we purchased a holiday home at Il Casale Di Capo Vaticano. I believe that holidays are very important in our really busy lives and well deserved and endeavour to make sure that our guests have a wonderful holiday at Il Casale.

Pam Mole purchased this apartment in 2009

Without doubt we chose to buy at Il Casale because of the stunning location with fabulous views to Stromboli and accessibility to the Capo Vaticano coastline and Tropea. The apartments have wonderful uninterrupted views to the surrounding countryside and sea.

Il Casale Di Capo Vaticano is a gem. All who stay here love the beautiful surroundings and the peacefulness and yet within 15 minutes drive of the lovely cliff top town of Tropea. I still have to pinch myself when I open the shutters on a morning and look at at the awesome Stromboi out at sea. There really is no need to go out of an evening to eat. We have a farm next door that sells all kinds of fresh salad, fruit and vegetables and great local butchers and fishmongers. There is nothing better than sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine and having a bbq watching the sun set over Stromboli. We are very lucky to have a chlorine free swimming pool which has many health benefits especially for those with respiratory problems. Il Casale is a friendly place and our hope is that all who visit love it as much as we do.

An amazing and wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5
This is my second visit to the apartment and won't be my last as yet again it didn't fail to let us down. The apartment is set in beautiful grounds and stunning views. The apartment is well equipped with everything you need is very clean, and comfortable.

Being my second visit, I didnt think I would feel the same about the place, but can't wait to return.

I highly recommend Il Casale.

Typically Italy

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I had a lovely week at Il Casale. The area is very typically Italian and there is a lovely walk into the nearest village with the beaches only 10 minutes away. The apartment was modern and clean and had everything you could want. Set in a lovely, tranquil area surrounded by farmland with fantastic views. We could not find anything negative to say about the place or the apartment and hope to one day go back.

Fantastic location and beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I spent two weeks at Il Casale in September 2010. We are in our early 30's and could not have asked for anything more!

When we first entered the apartment we were very impressed with the furnishing. There was no expense spared. Modern kitchen with all mod cons that blended nicely with the dining area and living room. The bedroom was spacious and comfortable with en-suite bathroom. The terrace was large with a lovely seating area and recliners that had direct access to the private swimming pool and looked out across the Mediterranean and towards Stromboli.

We spent most evenings relaxing on the terrace overlooking the sunset after having eaten in one of many local fantastic restaurants. If that relaxation was a little too much to bear, we took a short trip into Tropea where the lively and bustling traditional Italian town came to life!

Il Casale was within a five minute drive to local beaches and stunning viewpoints. The beaches were quiet, sea was warm and Grotticelle is well worth a visit.

What we loved more than anything was that Il Casale was totally uncommercialized and we were able to go to the local butchers for meat, local bakers for daily bread and felt as if we were in a secret hideaway! We knew, however, that a short trip in the car would take us to large supermarkets, busy towns and Italian leather bags for my girlfriend!

We could not have aked for anything more from Il Casale.....everything we needed, everything we wanted.....and more.

We will definately be returning!

Il Casale June 2011

  • 4 of 5
On the positive side, the apartment was spacious, comfortable and extremely well equipped for Italy (e.g. toaster and kettle provided). It's set in a peaceful location with good views towards the sea. This is an area with many beautiful and interesting places to visit.

On the negative side, the terrace wasn't private and mostly in shade through the day. The wooden sun loungers were uncomfortable as there were no cushions provided. The pool is quite small for anyone wanting to have a good swim. Internet provision was by mobile dongle which was slow and unreliable.

Despite the drawbacks, we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.

Thank you for taking the time to review. I am so glad to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay at the Casale and enjoyed the beautiful and peaceful location.

Thank you for your comments about the sunbeds and can assure you that cushions will be provided. As regards the private terrace, as it is at ground floor level it is bordered by the extensive grassed areas of the Casale grounds and has wonderful views out to sea and the surrounding countryside.

I would be delighted if you decided to holiday at the Casale again.

Pam.

Amazing experience, stunningly beautiful

  • 5 of 5
The location was hidden gem. It is very hard to find accommodation that I would rate 5 star in quality that is set right in the middle of farmland with breathtaking sea and mountain views all around 360 degrees of views. There is pool right in the middle of the grounds and you look out over the most stunning views as you take it all in. The location is so quiet, so tranquil, yet it is only a 2 minute drive from the charming local town in Ricadi which has everything you need for your amenities. A little grocery shop, post office, hairdressers, butcher, bakery, bar, a few shops, pharmacy. A few minutes past the local town takes you to a larger supermarket for a bigger shop.

The apartment was beautiful, like home from home with modern high quality furnishings, lovely lounger with wide screen television with sky, air-condition. The view from the apartment across the grounds over to the sea view is spectacular.

Looking forward to staying there again this year, can't wait!!!!!!

It is also near to a large modern shopping centre which I enjoyed going after I wanted to escape the heat for a few hours.

Only six minutes from the spectacular coastline of sandy bays and rocky coves of Capo Vaticano with the beautiful beaches of Grotticelle and Santa Maria and 15 minutes from the cliff top 17th century town of Tropea, with its white sand and turquiose sea and voted best beach destination by the Sunday Times, is the unique Il Casale Di Capo Vaticano. If you are looking for peace and quiet in a beautiful setting with views to Stromboli and the Aeolian islands, yet within easy reach of local restaurants and shops, Il Casale is for you. Il Casale is a haven of tranquility and the perfect place to unwind from the stresses of everyday life and well situated to explore the stunning Calabrian countryside and the Costa degli Dei (Coast of the Gods). Calabria, which is bathed by the Ionian and Tyrrhenian seas, has mile upon mile of sandy beaches, rocky coves and spectacular headlands. It is a largely mountainous area of outstanding natural beauty and a nature lover's paradise with four national parks. The ski resort of Sila is is only 1 hour and 40 minutes from the apartment. II Casale is well placed to observe the fantastic sunsets over Stromboli from the private terrace or at nearby Il Faro (lighthouse) and to visit the shrine of La Madonna della Fontana of Spilinga. Visit the neighbouring medieval town of Pizzo, take a boat trip to the active volcano of Stromboli and Aeolian islands or even take the ferry to Sicily and Mt Etna from Reggio Di Calabria. A car is strongly recommended to explore and to make the most this delightful unspoilt part of authentic Southern Italy.
