EATING OUT. While Marina di Caulonia is a traditional Italian town with many places to eat and drink, I have listed a few which are well worth a visit for quality of food and price.
BLUE TANGO, beach front restaurant (excellent seafood)
LA CHACARITA, Restaurant at end of promenade, (shown in picture gallery) great pizzas, seafood and steaks.
RANCH SOUND STEAKHOUSE - On the main road leaving Caulonia (excellent steaks).
LE COLONNE - Restaurant in Caulonia Superiore very reasonable.
LA TRATTORIA DEL PESCE - Excellent fish restaurant near Ranch Sound.
PIZZERIA ELIA - Opposite supermarket - nice outdoor area, nearest one to apartments.
Restaurant opposite Moonlight Bar - very good pizzas.
KURU PAY - Beach front, restaurant/nightclub.
IGUANA - Beach front restaurant/nightclub.
From personal experience anyone with special dietary needs, in particular Coeliac (gluten intolerance) can be well catered for, as restaurants are more than happy to provide suitable dishes.
I have just returned from a 4-week holiday in this lovely apartment. The apartment was exactly as described and even better than expected. The owners had left the equivalent of a welcome hamper for me consisting of wine, mineral water, juice, local cheese, bread, butter, tomatoes and possibly even more. And since I arrived on a Sunday evening, with the shops closed this was esp. appreciated and made me feel so welcome.
The apartment is very comfortable, tastefully furnished and offers beautiful views across much greenery to the sea. It offers privacy but there is also a very friendly community in the block. The locals to are very friendly and welcoming; clearly enjoying visitors and tourists.
The beach is a very short walk and never crowded not even in high season. The sea is clean and clear. It is a great choice to have a highly relaxing time and if one hires a car one can do nice excursions which definitely adds to the interest.
I can highly recommend everything and would go there again! I felt very lucky with my choice.
Excellent séjour. Appartement coquet, très bien équipé.
Accueil et échanges avec le propriétaire au top !
Accueil à l'arrivée par Anna, chaleureux et très professionnel.
Plage à proximité.
Supermarché à quelques pas.
Côté négatif : la piscine qui n'était pas en service mais qui ne saurait tarder et pas de wifi dans l'appartement.
Néanmoins ces deux points seront je pense rectifiés rapidement.
Je recommande vivement cet appartement.
Nous y retournerons, c'est certain :)
Appartement conforme à la description avec tout le confort. Me^me si l'ascenseur ne fonctionnait pas. Très agréable à vivre, en particulier le balcon pour les déjeuners. Le contact local nous a très bien reçu et a été très aimable et attentionné à nos demandes. L'appartement à très bien entretenu et propre. Nous avons apprécier les conseils entre terme de logistique et de découverte de la région. On recommande cette location. A noter un restaurant à Marina di caulonia "les pieds dans le sable". Super. On reviendra.
Appartamento molto accogliente e dotato di ogni confort. Abbiamo avuto qualche problema con la caldaia dell'acqua calda che funzionava male e bisognava riavviarla spesso. Qualche difficoltà di tipo linguistico con il contatto locale (sicuramente una brava persona disponibile ) ma siamo riusciti a colloquiare con difficoltà. Se si parlava in Italiano sembrava che capisse poco, un pò meglio quando abbiamo iniziato a parlare in inglese! non abbiamo approcciato con il calabrese! Gli unici disservizi sono imputabili alla Municipalità ad es. pochi cassonetti per il conferimento dei rifiuti e cumuli di immondizia a ridosso del residence mai rimossi nell'arco del soggiorno. Ovunque segni di degrado e incuria. A compensare un mare splendido e cristallino con tanti pesci!
Newly built luxury holiday apartment in unspoilt Calabria. Situated in the traditional Italian town of Marina di Caulonia in southern Italy, this apartment is one of the most desirable in a private gated complex of 144 apartments The apartment is less than 3km from Roccella Jonica, which hosts lively fiesta and jazz festivals during the summer months. Residential Amusa is a pleasant five minute walk to the beach, and a ten minute walk into the lovely town of Marina di Caulonia with its mix of traditional and trendy bars and friendly restaurants. It is just a 3 minute walk to the nearest well stocked supermarket, there is also a lively market every Saturday selling local produce. During the summer months the nearby beach and promenade come alive with family friendly beach bars and tourist markets. It is well worth the 10 minute drive up to Caulonia Superiore with it's numerous churches, medevial piazzas and breathtaking views. There is a large shopping mall - Le Gru - in Siderno which is a comfortable 15 minute drive away. The area is famous for its historical greco roman architecture and ruins, and it was in these waters that the famous Riace Bronze warriors were found dating to the 5th century B.C.
