The
Experience

Calabria’s hills have become national parks and good beaches abound on its long rugged coast. On a hillside overlooking the rooftops of Lamezia – and beyond to the Tyrrhenian Sea – is an 18th-century farmhouse backed by wooded hills. Armida spent every summer of her childhood here, surrounded by a garden of bougainvillea and roses, lemons, vines, figs and palms. Generosity of spirit is what this place is all about; she and her mother run the B&B where bountiful breakfasts, on the terrace or inside, are a spread of breads, garden fruits and homemade cakes and jams. Enter the light-filled hallway to find the family quarters to the left, the new breakfast room in the old wine cantina, and a staircase leading to three big bright bedrooms above. Pristine, modern and terracotta tiled, one sports a dressing area behind apricot curtains and iron bedframes painted green, another a vibrant peach-coloured wall and a gleaming hydromassage tub.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Armida Nicotera

  • You’re in the heart of Calabria (old Magna Grecia). Views from the balcony look towards Stromboli with magnificent sunsets. Up the hill in the park you can see the isthmus, the narrowest point of Italy, where the Tyrrhenian and Ionian sea almost touch.
  • We’re 5 minutes walking from the centre. Up streets with ancient buildings you can find the ancient book's house,archeological and diocesan museum. The Norman castle is up ahead, overlooking the city, on a rock surrounded by the river and old stone houses.
  • Discover the ancient churches, il luogo del ghetto ebraico,botanical garden, adventure park, then relax to the thermal baths of Caronte, only 5 mins away. Il pomeriggio è bello fare una passeggiata sul Corso tra bei negozi di abbigliamento italiani.
  • Today visit the old wine cellars or the oldest textile mill in a mountain village, Reventino mountain and Corazzo's Abbazia, then enjoy white sandy beaches and cliffs, the church of Piedigrotta, the Sila parks, con alberi secolari, all at your fingertips.
  • Calabria (from Greek: ‘beautiful and fertile’) never fails to charm, with its mild climate; In spring the blossom, rose and jasmine blooms, in summer come for the sea, waterfalls and red tomatoes, in autumn and winter pick olives, walnuts and chestnuts.
