About the property

"Ex Convento | casa con orto" is in a beautiful Ex Convent of the 17th century.


Not far from the historic center of the medieval village of Belmonte Calabro, there is the ancient Convent of the Capuchins built in 1611. It is immediately welcomed by the Church of San Giuseppe and its bell tower where the Romanesque architectural style is recognizable. From here you enter inside the Ex Convent and you are immediately greeted in the beautiful cloister where the well-cistern is located and on two sides the sundials, used to read the time.

Ex Convent | house with vegetable garden is located in a wing of the Ex Convent. The holiday home has an independent entrance and is surrounded by a huge private garden-vegetable garden: a splendid centenary citrus grove, an olive grove, vegetable gardens cultivated according to the principles of organic farming and a synergistic vegetable garden cultivated for Ex Convento guests | house with vegetable garden. From all the windows you have a wonderful view of the natural landscape, made up of campaigns and pristine hills. From the garden you have a panoramic view of the Calabrian coast, the Tyrrhenian Sea and, on a clear day, the Stromboli volcano and the archipelago of the Aeolian Islands.

Calabria is also an ideal winter refuge for those fleeing the cold. With over 300 days of sunshine a year, even in the middle of winter there are beautiful sunny days. It also boasts the lowest number of rainy days throughout Italy.


For those who want to spend a holiday-trekking, Belmonte Calabro is crossed by one of the few marked trails of the CAI (CAI Trail no. 815) which passes right outside the front gate of the Monastery, The "Path Drogo de Beaumont" and the sea (Marina del Belmonte), crosses the mausoleum of Michele Bianchi (political Italian fascism), the historical center of Belmonte Calabro. Then we go through beautiful countryside with stunning views over the sea and the countryside to Mount Cocuzzo (1541 km). The climb takes about 8 hours, the descent of about 6 hours.

Calabria also has three nature reserves (Pollino, Aspromonte, Sila) where you can walk by yourself or go on a guided hike.

Belmonte Calabro is located a few kilometers from the Tyrrhenian coast, in a mid-hill (280 m. S. L.M.) right above the sea. An ideal environment landscape for a relaxing holiday and to enjoy nature. Far from mass tourism. A small village characteristic are the numerous alleys, streets mostly foot traffic that allow you to move around the historic center, a charming little square, from where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Aeolian islands.

Between Belmonte and Amantea, it is the Regional Marine Park "Reefs of Isca" a paradise for divers, given the presence of flora and fauna typical of the Mediterranean. You can also explore the depths with the sea-watching, in fact, the beautiful backdrops can be seen through the special boats with transparent keel.
