OK, comme je vois que la plupart n'écrivent qu'en anglais, hé bien en voici un en français, ma langue maternelle de Belge de Bruxelles, si ça peut aider les unilingues francophones de passage sur ce site. Oui-oui, voici bien une adresse à conseiller aux personnes désireuses de se ressourcer dans un endroit tout-à-fait typique de l'Italie profonde et qui aiment les contacts personnels avec les gens du cru, les chansons de rue le soir, l'accordéon ... Les lacets menant à la plage sont nombreux, mais le paysage est magnifique et est un plaisir en soi. Une excellente expérience, à n'en point douter !

If you are a writer trying to finish your novel, an artist wanting to sketch Italian village life of a past era, or just looking for a tranquil place to spend some time relaxing and reading, then this is the place for you. My wife and I enjoyed our stay in Pietrapaola. The apartment is quaint and has all the right touches. The people are kind and generous (I am biased because this is my grandfather's hometown) and the town itself is charming and interesting. Just keep in mind that there are few reliable services here (no restaurants) and the bus schedule is somewhat erratic. So make sure you have a car so you can head down to the marina when necessary.

Also, dealing with owners Peter and Rhonda was a pleasure and all the transactions and communications went smoothly.

Winter holiday in Pietrapaola

We spent two weeks in this prettily renovated house midway through Pietrapaola a quaint old village located between two big cavernous rocks. The house, particularly the kitchen is well provided with everything (even with oven) and very tidy just as we had all support we needed from the helpful people taking care of the house. We were also really excited about the pleasant people of Pietrapaola all receiving us cordially, we had a nice time sitting on the village square with bonfire etc. Even in winter we had pleasant weather conditions, especially for hiking in the mountains, olivary and orange plantations, canyons and forests nearby Pietrapaola.

The Ionic Sea and beach is only 20 minutes drive down the mountain through the scenic farmland that is lined with groves of ancient olive trees of the Roman and Greek empires. Avoid the summer crowds of other well known destinations and experience the warm and friendly culture that Calabria has to offer..the traditional Italian way of life.

The ancient towns of Crotone, Rossano and Cosenza are all within a leisurely days drive and offer a mix of the old historical Centro and the new vibrant Italian shopping experience, from the boutique galleries to the modern shopping centres.

Sampling the fresh produce of the local farmers and vinyards makes dining-in a different experience everyday. Dining-out at the pizzeria in the village or try some of the family owned restaurants at nearby Mandatoriccio, Mirto, Cariati, San Giovanni, Ciro Marina.

For a truly relaxing crowd avoiding holiday recharge your batteries at Pietrapaola. Come and enjoy!

Other Activities: Dining out, village bars.

Notes:
The accomodation is modern and comfortable for the astute holiday maker without being cluttered. The house is secure with a key lockable front security grill. All windows have lockable double glazed panels and shutters. You are constantly reminded of the history of the location by the structure of the house and the surrounding buildings of the village. Towering over the village is a spectacular rock outcrop that defines Pietrapaola. The village is friendly, quiet and tranquil. You can set your own pace and avoid the crowds of the major tourist areas. You can travel through the ancient countryside enjoying the vistas once inhabited by the Greeks and visit the defensive wall of Hanibal ruins nearby that once stretched across the countryside in ancient times. The farmland produces fresh produce to cook, or the local restaurants will satisfy your appetite. For your little luxuries a supermarket is near the beach only 20 minutes drive. Pietrapaola has something for everyone.
