A refined oasis of tranquillity the five star Praia Art Resort, part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, is one of the jewels of the spectacular Ionian coast of Calabria, Italy’s best kept secret for some time but increasingly on the radar of discerning travellers seeking out the road to less travelled parts of Italy.

Located in Isola di Capo Rizzuto in Calabria, beside the protected Marine Reserve, the resort makes a striking first impression with the tasteful, if somewhat quirky,  décor - a combination of authentic Mediterranean design and modern luxury touches, its rooms and suites sit perfectly in their natural surroundings. Visit the private beach, take in the breathtaking views of the Ionian Sea and savour mouth-watering local flavours at the 1 Michelin Star Restaurant. Further afield there is an abundance of things to do in Calabria, including visiting the National Archaeological Museum and Aspromonte National Park.
