Reviewed 30 June 2012

Myself and 7 other family members traveled to Italy from Pittsburgh Pa. USA . We traveled throughout Italy visited family and childhood hometowns of our parents and touring touristy towns. My father is from Maierato, so while there we stayed at the Popilia Country Resort, and were amazed at its beauty!!! Breath taking views of Ocean, countryside, Lake ect... Hotel grounds are very well taken care of, Bungalows are very clean, fully equip, beautiful decor. The staff was ever so pleasant and helpful!! And they knew English very well!! We had a wonderful stay there, just wished we could have stayed longer!!

Stayed there with my family in June 2012 and had a fantastic time. The setting is great and the quality of the food and the service is excellent. The reception staff could not have been more helpful and genuinely eager to make your stay better. Would recommend it to families, anyone wanting a peaceful break and the discerning traveller. (By the way their tuna is fantastic - recommended.) *****

Room Tip: We had a challet down near the bottom which was really quiet and restful.

Reviewed 8 January 2009

During a road trip through the south of Italy, by accident we came across this marvellous country resort, curiously located on the top of a hill. It was a positive surprise since not only it is surrounded by nature (both sea and mountain) and extremely calm, but it turns out to be a new construction, that meaning: spotless!
It is five minutes away – by car - from the sea, and seven minutes away from civilization, although it seems lost in the nature.
Rooms are comfortable, very well equipped, elegant and spacious, with great landscape views. The resort itself includes sport facilities (tennis, soccer, stables…) and a very cosy wellness and beauty centre, discretely placed near the outdoor swimming pool, which overlooks mountain and see…
We noticed several bungalows, but I cannot describe them since we never saw the inside, each one of them with its own garden.
Last but not least I would mention the restaurant: food and wine will be difficult to forget, being of high quality, fresh and typical from the Calabrian area (although I must mention the nouvelle cuisine did play an important part in all the dishes, making them also very attractive to the eye!)…
Do take a pair of outdoor shoes if you were to go, I didn’t and I destroyed my shoes while walking through the woods, farm and lake…
