Chianalea di Scilla

Chianalea belongs to Scilla, and is one of the most romantic villages in Calabria. Chianalea is characterized by its thousand-year history, and its location in close proximity to the sea. It is said that the village was founded by exiles from Troy, who were looking for a safe place to live. The village is also known as "Venice of the South", and as a village of fishermen. The houses were built on rocks, and are separated from one another by narrow streets that lead down to the sea. Sometimes these very small alleyways are also used as a landing zone for fishing boats. Chianalea can only be explored on foot, as you walk through narrow alleys past ancient fountains and churches. High above the village, the castle "Dei Ruffo di Calabria", built for military purposes, watches over everything. The mighty building was transformed into a residence by Count Paolo Ruffo in 1532. Today, the castle hosts conferences and art exhibitions, and from here you can see the beauties of the Calabrian strait, such as the Aeolian Islands and the Sicilian coast. The castle is one of the best vantage points of the village. Participation in village life: Go for a dive, and discover Scilla’s sea floor, one of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful. Be fascinated by the underwater spectacle using professional equipment, or simply with a diving mask. A huge water plant and jagged rocks await you. There are a number of small beaches and bays closeby, "small paradises", such as the "Cala Janculla", which are only accessible by sea. In summer, you can be on board for fishing the local swordfish. Scilla may be small, but stretches from the sea to the mountains. Here, you can explore here the fossil-covered karst caves of Tremusa. Scilla is also not far from Reggio Calabria and its museum with Riace’s bronze figures, Locri with its archaeological excavations, the National Park Aspromonte, and the Aeolian Islands. The charming town of Tropea or the Serra San Bruno forest are also worth a visit (small tip from the amavido-founder Marie-Janet).

Demetrio Host

I’m a retired doctor, I love reading, and life at the sea. I like to spend my time at the beach, under a parasol, or in the sun. I enjoy going on boat trips, diving, or simply going for walks along the beach promenade. I’ll gladly share my experiences and local knowledge with my guests and travelers.
