Your resort

The large green area where Casa Siesta is hidden in pine and orange groves is on the outskirts of Santa Domenica, the nearest village 2 km south of Tropea on the Tyrrhenian coast of Calabria. Santa Domenica is a quiet little village where you can easily do your shopping. Especially the small bakery, somewhat hidden on the Corso, offers delicious freshly baked bread, small mini pizzas and ciabatta with olives in the morning. Centrally located is the well-stocked supermarket and across from it you will find a good selection of wines in a small shop as well as the local specialities, `nduja (spicy sausage paste), cheese, etc. In the two pasticcerias you can drink your cappuccino in the morning or enjoy an aperitif in the evening or eat homemade ice cream. On Mondays there is a weekly market in Santa Domenica, where you can buy fresh vegetables, fruit, cheese and sausage, but also clothes, household goods and flowers. There is also a small post office, a pharmacy, a bank and a petrol station in the village, as well as a selection of restaurants.


Only 2 km away is the old aristocratic town of Tropea, enthroned like an acropolis on the sandstone cliff that slopes steeply down to the sea. Wonderful beaches stretch along several bays. The old town of Tropea is criss-crossed by small, narrow alleyways where the noisy and typical southern Italian life takes place. Numerous shops invite you to stroll and shop and a large selection of restaurants offers you the specialities of the region. Of particular historical interest are Tropea’s Norman cathedral and also the numerous noble palaces in the old town with their beautiful entrance portals. Tropea’s landmark, the small rocky island “Isola Bella” (Beautiful Island) with its pretty chapel can be admired from one of Tropea’s panoramic terraces during an aperitif at sunset.
