Situated in a picturesque 15th Century convent, the Villa Paola is a idyllic sanctuary situated in the chic, coastal town of Tropea.


Combining modern hotel comforts with the charms of a historic residence, this tranquil accommodation is an oasis of relaxation, boasting a luscious, fragrant garden where you can enjoy a book under canopies of orange and citrus trees, surrounded by roses and jasmines.


There are also a plethora of other facilities to compliment your stay, including Technogym fitness room, a hammam, solarium terrace, and even a luxurious infinity pool, where you can gaze dreamily out to the Tyrrhenian Sea whilst immersed in cooling water yourself.


Or, if you fancy getting more up close and personal with the waters of The Coast of the Gods, Villa Paola can also help you book excursions and activities including a tour of the balmy beaches of Tropea, sailing excursions on a beautiful yacht, or even the opportunity to take part in water sports such as mini diving, snorkelling and windsurfing!


The stand out room in the whole of Villa Paola is the Executive suite, which is furnished with warm woods and stylishly elegant furniture. Large windows fill the room with light, and open out onto azure views of the sparkling sea as well as Tropea’s ancient architecture.


Enjoy these luscious scenes on the balcony before retreating into the Executive room’s lavish walk-in shower to cool off from the heat of the day.


Indulge in a delicious breakfast which is served every morning on Villa Paola’s panoramic terrace overlooking the breath-taking coast of the gods and Tropea’s unique fortress. There’re breads, cakes, jams salami and cheese aplenty (all locally sourced of course!), but the crowning glory of the buffet has to be the fresh produce from Villa Paola’s very own kitchen gardens.


From tomatoes to oranges, lemons to grapefruits, apricots to peaches, pears, plums and blackberries, the variety of fruits will get your morning off to a fragrant and colourful start!


The lively centre of Tropea is a 15-minute stroll, the concierge at Villa Paola will happily reccomend on the best dining.


Villa Paola is located just outside the centre of Tropea in a strategic position, especially if you arrive by car. The hotel is 1.8 km from Norman Cathedral and 2.3 km from the beach of Tropea.

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to more
