Overview

Situated in the centre of Tropea, a small coastal town in the Italian region of Calabria, La Dolce Vita’s rooms are located inside a stunning cream coloured palazzo overlooking the azure waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea, with incomparable views of rolling white sands and the small island of Madonna dell’Isola.

 

This panorama is best enjoyed from the hotel’s palatial terrace, dotted with comfortable and elegant furniture, perfect for reclining in with a glass of wine on a clear evening, when, if you’re lucky, you can see the warm, orange sun setting over the Aeolian islands in the distance.

 

Inside, La Dolce Vita is decorated in a unique style combining whimsical 1950s features with contemporary creature comforts, as vintage inspired furniture and patterns sits perfectly alongside flat screen TVs and air conditioning.

 

It’s the perfect base to come back to and relax in after exploring the surrounding area, as La Dolce Vita is surrounded by archetypal winding streets, boutique, artisanal shops and piazzas.

 

Or, for the sportier among you, why not head out on one of the nearby excursions advertised through La Dolce Vita’s website, including swimming, snorkelling, windsurfing or even a sailing trip on a beautiful yacht along the “Coast of the Gods” accompanied by a light lunch on board.

Rooms

The most luxurious accommodation at La Dolce Vita has to be the Deluxe rooms, which are crispy, white, and boast private balconies, allowing light to pour in, and enabling you to enjoy the incomparable sea views in the tranquillity of your own spacious apartment.

 

Or, if you prefer a street view, why not book a Superior room, which face out onto the lanes and piazzas of the town centre, allowing you to catch glimpses of daily life and immerse yourself in the spirit of Tropea.

Dining

Enjoy an open-air breakfast with a sea view each morning on La Dolce Vita’s magnificent terrace. Treat yourself to freshly baked cakes, jams, fresh fruit, bread, salami, cheese and the traditional olives as part of the colourful buffet, which runs late into the morning, allowing you to sleep in as long as you like.

 

There are a few good restaurants a 5-10 minutes' walk away in the centre of Tropea. La Dolce Vita recommends Ristorante 'da Nico e Lilly', a garden eatery serving the catch of the day; Al Migliarese, serving seasonal cuisine; and Picanha for grilled meat.

Map

La Dolce Vita is right in Tropea's historic centre and a short walk to the sea. It's ideal for a car-free holiday.
