Situated on Calabria’s Tyrrhenian coast, Amantea is highly placed on the list of Calabria’s prettiest towns. It is one of the Cosenza Province’s most attractive, well-laid-out and picturesque towns with a rich and fascinating history. It was once occupied by many different nationalities from an Arabian strong-hold, Greeks, Romans and the Byzantines, who built a castle on the hill above Amantea to protect the town – this can still be seen today.
Set against a backdrop of mountains, Amantea, today is a busy town with all the modern amenities: variety of shops and boutiques, café bars, restaurants/pizzeria, gelatarias, pharmacies, post office etc. This blends well with the charming old historical centre where you can meander through the traditional narrow streets and enjoy the true feel of Calabria, enjoy an ice cream in one of the famous gelatieria of the area and from the kerbside seats overlook the marina town and spectacular views of the sea and coastline. The marina beach front offers beach bars and lidos and a small Acqua Park, children’s play area and a variety of seasonal activities. It also hosts many festivals and fieras during the year and a daily market selling locally grown fruit and vegetables.
Amantea is also conveniently positioned to explore many other traditional villages and the stunning National Park of La Sila is approx. 1 ½ hour drive away, where you can take advantage of the many year round activities that are on offer, including walking, pony trekking, quad bikes and in the winter months, skiing. Areas of archaeological interest are within easy reach including the museum housing the Bronzes of Riace at Reggio Calabria. Close by are the Thermal Springs at Guardia Piemontese offering curative mineral waters and mud baths for a variety of conditions with the Terme Luigiane providing Spa treatments from May to October. Located at the Grand Hotel San Michele at Cetraro, approx. 40 mins drive north there is a 9-hole golf course.
