COOEE Michelizia Tropea Resort has a brilliant location in the popular town of Tropea. The centre is only 700 metres from the hotel so it couldn’t be any easier to get out and about. There’s a fascinating history in the town and it comes alive as you walk through the cobbled streets. We love grabbing a coffee in one of the family-run cafes and just watching the world go by. The town’s also got a pretty good beach. It gets a bit crowded in July and August but it’s still worth a visit to take a dip in the clear seas.
At the hotel you’ll find things are much more peaceful. There’s a lovely pool that’s on the edge of the property and has panoramic views over the sea. You’ll be able to use the beach facilities at Blanca Beach (there's a local fee to use the facilities between 24 Jul - 28 Aug) and there’s a free shuttle to take you there and back. It’s got a restaurant so you could happily spend all day there relaxing. There’s also a nice restaurant in the hotel and we recommend stopping in for dinner a few nights. It’s got quite a romantic atmosphere and some delicious local dishes to try. They only use fresh, local ingredients.
Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 5 mins by private car from Lamezia airport.
