The secret is out: Calabria is quickly becoming a gastronomic paradise due to its no-frills, laid-back, high quality cuisine. It's an ancient region that has been inhabited and fought over for millennia by various groups, namely the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Spanish, and French, each contributing its own food traditions to the Calabrian melting pot. Here local ingredients still reign supreme and form the basis for the most characteristic dishes: fiery chiles, sweet Tropea onions, ancient coastal citrons, and juicy figs to name a few. These ingredients shine in the many innovative and traditional restaurants found throughout Praia a Mare and the rest of the Riviera dei Cedri. Calabria also boasts a burgeoning wine scene, with more and more hectares of vineyards being dedicated to producing export-quality wines every year.

When it comes to venturing out and experiencing life, nobody does it better than the Calabrians. This is where seemingly all of Italy comes in the summer to bake in the sun, lounge on the beach, and enjoy the rugged beauty of the region.Casa Amendolara enjoys a privileged position to make the most of your Calabrian vacation. With the sparkling sea and bustling, trendy lidos just minutes down the hill, the beach calls. But the natural wonders and possibilities don't stop there, as Praia a Mare sits at the edge of the largest national park in all of Italy, Parco Pollino, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here you can enjoy some of the nation's most pristine hiking and biking trails, experience white water rafting, paraglide through the canyons and zipline through the woods.
