About
Description
The Hotel is located in Capo Vaticano Ricadi on Viale Giuseppe Berto, very close to Tropea (8 km - 9 minutes by car). The nearest town to the hotel is San Nicolo of Ricadi which is about 750 metres away - about 10 ...More minutes on foot. The railway station of Ricadi is 900 metres away and is 12 minutes on foot. By train you can get to North way: Tropea (8 minutes), Pizzo Calabro (25 minutes), and other beautiful places along the coast. South way: Coccoriono (5 minutes), Nicotera (10 minutes), Scilla (45 minutes), Reggio Calabria (60 minutes) and other places. Throughout the day there is a shuttle bus service which connects our hotel with nearby Tropea and others places to see. This bus service runs to a fixed timetable. It can be easily reached by car as it near the road which goes from Tropea to Vibo Valentia and is about 30 kilometres from the latter. It can be easily reached by train as the nearest Ricadi station is only 0,950 metres away. The Lamezia Terme international airport is 60 kilometres from our hotel, Reggio Calabria airport is 120 kilometres from our hotel. The nearest beach is "Torre Ruffa" (it is a sandy beach) and is 950 metres away; Here the water gets deep gradually. Our guests also have a beach shuttle service at their disposal to go to "Grotticelle" (Objectively the most beautiful in the all Calabria, gradual depth and with fine white sand). This service runs from the morning and continues throughout the day following a flexible timetable to cover the whole day (Every hour go/back). Grotticelle is only three minutes away by shuttle; At the beach you can take advantage of many services (at prices of the Convention) to name a few: the excursion along the coast (from Capo Vaticano, untill after Tropea with several stops in the most beautiful spots to make the bathing or snorkeling (equipment included), eat fresh fish with drink on board, excursion to the fabulous beaches of Capo Vaticano and many other activities and water sports. Our hotel offers you special beach service rates (not obligatory as the beach is not private one): 1 beach umbrella and sun loungers for € 9,00 per room, per day (2 peoples). It is possible to make a lump-sum payment. Price is exclusively reserved to our customers. Particular attention is devoted to the cleaning of the rooms, every other part of the hotel and to the guest. This is "three star superior" hotel, far 0,500 mts from the centre of the village of San Nicolo of Ricadi. The hotel offer an efficient shuttle bus service from/to the best destinations that must be visited. The hotel is very renowned for its delicious cuisine. We were guests in the italian TV SHOW "Domenica del Villaggio" on Channel 5, "Vecchia fattoria"on Rai 1, We have been reported on the main guides of the sector and on the italian daily newspaper "Repubblica", and we have also prepared the best products of our local gastronomic for some Italian actor of TV series "Gente di Mare" at the port of Tropea. The menu' of our Restaurant changes every day, both lunch and dinner. The pre-cooked food does not exist here, we cook all at the moment. Once a week they organize tastings of Calabrian typical products: "Calabria evening", a multi-course buffet feast during which the best regional specialties are served with popular music, songs and dances.
