The hotel, has a big sea view with umbrellas and deckchair. Moreover, on the porch connecting the new central part and the new annexe, there are small tables with chairs. Here is possible to taste a fresh long drink or a good local ice cream with the splendid swimming pool view.

Once a week the Hotel is pleased to offer you a 'Calabrian Night' with tasting of traditional products of the Calabrian gastronomy such as succulent farm meats and grilled local sausages, onion mousse, sheep cheese and other delicacies. You may enjoy our food while sipping local wine at the sound of traditional music, songs and 'tarantelle' dances. Hereunder you may find a video clip of one of our Calabrian nights.
Here you can admire the unspoilt countryside along the splendid Capo Vaticano and Tropea coast, famous world wide for its beauty. Like Tropea, also Capo Vaticano, the last outpost on the Gulf of Sant' Eufemia, can boast an international reputation, fully justified not only by the unchanging charm of the places, but also by the modern tourist structures which have revamped the local economy, once based solely on farming and food products, confirming its vocation for tourism.
The sunset from here over 'Stromboli' is considered the eight wonder of the world. The crystal clear sea and the marvellous beaches, as well as the professional way in which the hotel is run, will make your holiday with us in Capo Vaticano and Tropea an unforgettable experience.
Look...let your eyes soak up the colours and the shapes of an unmistakable nature, where traces of a past that is never forgotten are revealed at every glance.
Listen&pay attention to the wind telling legends in the beds of reeds, to the roar of the sea on the cliffs and the whispering wash of its wanes on the beaches, hear the sacred silence of the woods.
Smell&let yourselves be inebriated by the perfume of the orange blossom, grasp the musky fragrance of the Mediterranean maquis and the pungent aroma of the orchards.
Taste&savour the strong character of a cuisine that is in itself culture and tradition.
Touch&sink your hands in the white sand, brush your fingers over the wild flowers soaked in dew, let your mind skim over the horizon and follow its contours until tomorrow.
