La Torretta Beach Club.
The sixty apartments and town houses which will be built to the highest specification in traditional, southern Italian materials are set in landscaped grounds close to the beach amongst olive groves and citrus fruit orchards. Strict local planning controls ensure that the low level development adds to the very special character of the area.
Close to the charming town of Tropea, Italy's answer to San Tropez, the area is so beautiful it is known as the Coast of the Gods. The white beaches and clear blue sea, bordered by rugged granite cliffs, are heaven on earth and once enjoyed this aquatic paradise is never forgotten.
The five star La Torretta Beach Club takes its name from a local landmark, the distinctive Norman tower sits on a nearby headland. The Normans colonised the area in the Middle Ages on their way to the Crusades to the Holy Land but the history of the Coast of the Gods stretches back many more centuries. The area was home to the Greeks and Phoenicians long before the Romans conquered Calabria. These many, different cultures have left their mark on southern Italy, giving it the distinctive flavour it enjoys today.
The Romans loved their food and Calabria became an important part of their expanding empire. Southern Italy's warm climate all year round was as perfect then as it is today for growing fruit, vegetables and grapes, for delicious wines, as well as olive groves. The sea provides a source of wonderful, fresh fish too. The distinctive local cuisine is not only delicious but healthy in the bargain.
The temperature seldom drops below 15°C in the winter months and home owners at La Torretta Beach Club can look forward to warm sunshine from March to November. In the summer months there are daily temperatures of 25°C plus which make sea bathing a pleasure and this continues well into the autumn months.
At La Torretta Beach Club the residences are all designed to make the most of the relaxing climate. They combine cool, restful tiled interiors with the simple rustic charm of southern Italy. Every apartment enjoys stunning views out to sea positioned carefully to take full advantage of the beautiful grounds and the resort's facilities.
All are just metres away from the stylish La Torretta Beach Club bar and restaurant complex, serving up the dishes which have made Calabria famous the world over together with local wines and beers.
The complex also boasts a luxurious spa with sauna and beauty salon too. A small on site supermarket caters for daily needs.
The pretty grounds, dotted with palms, include a large central swimming pool for the use of all residents.
La Torretta Beach Club is the ideal place to relax and soak up the sun but there is a whole world to explore outside. The attractive coast road, which connects La Torretta with the delights of Tropea, runs between the sea and the development. The little village of Briatico with its beachside restaurants and family businesses is just two kilometres to the north, well within walking distance.
Getting to La Torretta could not be easier. It is just 35 minutes drive from Lamezia Terme airport which enjoys direct budget airline links with London and excellent connections with other European and international cities.
