  • Overview

    Praia Art Resort is one of the newest luxury boutique hotels to open in Calabria on the Ionian coast of Italy. Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty right on the coast and a few miles from the mountains Praia Art Resort is set to be one of the best boutique hotels in southern Italy. Calabria is an unspoilt area of Italy and its natural landscape, ancient towers and crystal coves make it the ideal setting for Praia Art Resort which makes the perfect relaxing holiday in southern Italy.

    The spa at Praia Art Resort is small and intimate, designed for one person at a time. Choose from a variety of relaxing treatments including: Holistic Stress, Sports Massage, Vodder Lymph Drainage, and Cellulite Massage. With 25 centuries of history and a heritage of unique Byzantine art, Rossano is without doubt one of the most beautiful towns in Calabria with an unrivalled artistic heritage rich in churches and seven Basilian monasteries. Whilst just under two hours away from Praia Art Resort it is well worth a visit and today, the town is famous for being the custodian of the famous “Codex Purpureus Rossanensis”, the Greek Evangeliary of the 5th and 6th centuries of Middle Eastern origin, preserved in the Diocesan Museum of Sacred Art. This code is one of only seven oriental manuscripts existing in the world. Rossano is also the home of liquorice, a product that has always been linked to the Amarelli family who started the processing and marketing of liquorice in 1731. Culture vultures and nature lovers have plenty to do and see nearby including Sersale - the greatest European canyons and the National Park of Sila, where hills and mountains join and where you can wander through enormous pines and maple trees giving an idea of how the woods would have looked in the 1800s.

    The restaurant at Praia Art Resort 'Pietramare Natural Food' is all about natural, honest food and local flavours. Traditional dishes splashed with a modern twist result in an exciting, colourful and tempting menu including parmesan stuffed anchovies, octopus ravioli with a smoked ricotta sauce and lamb with liquorice.
