Property description

These historic apartments are part of an ancient convent that has a long and fascinating history. Restored at the end of the 1980's and converted into 7 separate homes, these two apartments have been restored with rustic simplicity by two famous Italian architects. Tropea is located on an imposing sandstone crag in a magnificent position between Sant'Eufemia and Gioia Tauro. It is one of the most picturesque and artistically interesting centres in Calabria, commanding magnificent views of the sea, beaches and coves. Condé-Nast Traveller Recommended.

Further Details:

Tropea has very ancient origins indeed, its area has conspicuous traces of prehistoric settlements and evidence of Greek and Roman presence.

Nowadays Tropea is an exclusive seaside resort that also boasts a modern tourist and fishing harbour. The town also has one of the prettiest and best-preserved historic centres in the region.

The town, considered the real capital of the Capo Vaticano area, offers the eleventh-century Norman cathedral, the churches of St. Francis of Assisi and Santa Maria della Neve, as well as the highly fascinating church of Santa Maria dell´Isola, that stands at the foot of the town, on a small finger of land projecting into the sea.

From the viewpoint of the terrace where the oldest part of the town lies, the clear and extraordinarily blue sea breaking on splendid cliffs trimmed with white beaches and indented with coves, can be admired: all around are fertile undulating hills covered with extensive citrus fruit and olive plantations and vineyards.

Tropea is also an active farming centre, famous for the excellent quality of its food produce. Finally, the town´s craft production and cookery are also noteworthy, the latter is, above all, distinguished for its seafood tradition.
