Dream view of the sea and the Aeolian Islands

Beautiful apartment with a terrace, 5 minutes walking distance from the beach

Casa Caterina is situated near Santa Domenica di Ricadi. The house is located high above the sea on the cliffs at the beautiful bay of Torre Marino. The beach of Torre Marino for sure is an insider tip on the coast between Tropea and Capo Vaticano. 

Details

The apartment is located in the small “borgo”of Torre Marino. Adjacent to the apartment there are 4 other rural houses that are inhabited by locals. Calabrian life is guaranteed in this apartment. The owners are very hospitable and work a piece of land for their own needs just next to the apartment. You will enjoy their fresh fruits and vegetables. Appartamento Caterina has an entrance area, which merges into the living room, from which you reach a beautiful terrace. On the terrace you can comfortably eat in four persons.

The bay "Torre Marino" is one of the most beautiful of the coast and can be easily reached on foot from your apartment. On the beach there is a free section where you can just bring your own umbrella but also the possibility to rent beach chairs and umbrella.

Information about the location

The beautiful “Casa Caterina” is located just 5 minutes by car south of Santa Domenica di Ricadi, about 3 km from Tropea on the Tyrrhenian coast of Calabria.
 
The beach next to your holiday bungalow: Torre Marino is one of the most beautiful beaches on the coast, with white sand as well as rocks for snorkeling. The beach has a free area where you can bring your towel, umbrella and beach chairs. If you like you can rent beach chairs and an umbrella in one of the two beach bars. The beach bars are open from about mid-May to October. All day long you can enjoy small sacks, as well as lunch and dinner, coffee and ice-cream.
 
Santa Domenica is a quiet little village where you find everything necessary for your vacation. Especially the small bakery on the Corso, which is a bit hidden, offers delicious freshly baked bread, small mini pizzas and ciabatta with olives in the morning. In the middle of the village you find a well-stocked supermarket and in front of it there is a small store with a nice selection of wines and the local specialties, `Nduja (hot sausage paste), cheese etc. Two big supermarkets are just before Santa Domenica coming from your vacation bungalows. In the central “piazza” you can choose between two pasticcerias and I can also recommend Bar Mazcalzone. Here you can drink your cappuccino in the morning or enjoy an aperitif in the evening. On Mondays there is the weekly market, where you can buy fresh vegetables, fruits, cheese and sausages but also clothes, household goods and flowers. Santa Domenica has a post office, a pharmacy, a bank and a petrol station as well as a selection of restaurants. There is also a train station in Santa Domenica. The small regional train costs almost nothing and drives you from Lamezia Terme to Rosarno and stops in all the pretty coastal towns such. Pizzo, Nicotera, Parghelia, Zambrone etc.
 
The beaches and bays between Santa Domenica and Capo Vaticano are among the most beautiful in Calabria. By car, numerous other beautiful bays can be reached in just a few minutes from your holiday home.
 
The most beautiful view of the sea and the sunset behind the Aeolian Islands you have directly across from the property of the apartments. Torre Marino was originally part of a Saracen fortification. From the tower (torre), the tower guard was able to early make out enemy attackers from the sea and give warning signals. Today, the place with the old tower is picturesque, as if time had stood still. You are high above the sea and from here you can enjoy the most beautiful sunsets and watch the regular eruptions on the volcanic island of Stromboli.
 
Only 3 km away is the old noble town of Tropea also know as the perle of Calabria. Beautiful beaches stretch along several bays. The old town of Tropea is criss-crossed by small, narrow streets on which the loud and typical southern Italian life takes place. Numerous shops invite you to stroll and shop and a wide range of restaurants offer you the specialties of the region. The Norman cathedral of Tropea and also the numerous aristocratic palaces in the old town with their beautiful portals are of historical interest. "Isola Bella" (beautiful island) with its beautiful chapel can be admired during an aperitif in the sunset from one of the viewing terraces Tropea. It is worth visiting it and make the little path and some hundred of stairs uphill. You have an amazing view of Tropea and the complete coast.
