Additional Location Information

Badolato Superiore is a medieval hilltop village about 3 kilometers from the stunning beaches of the uncrowded Ionian coast. Behind it hills and mountains provide a shaded cooler world where you may be lucky enough to see eagles, wild boar and many other creatures.

The village is a quiet living part of old Italy but, in the summer, there are a number of festivals, concerts and opera which take place in the piazza, a few hundred meters from the house.

Flights for many parts of Italy and Europe go to Lamezia Terme airport (SUF) which is about an hours drive away. There is some parking, via a narrow lane, outside the house, otherwise parking is available a couple of hundred meters away.

The area is in the heart of Magna Grecia, the old Greek colonies of southern Italy and Sicily (there are some villages where ancient Greek is still spoken). Greek and Roman sites abound as do later remains. The food is seasonal and embedded in the area with interesting and tasty local specialities. Europe's largest underwater national park is a short drive away. This is a relaxing break in an area that hasn't really even become 'undiscovered' yet.
