Villa Paola is without question one of the prettiest places you could stay in. We had the whole swimming pool and gardens to ourself as nobody else used it during the day. The area is lovely and there is an honesty bar ... but no ability for a lovely glass of vino if you wanted it. Evenutally as I could... More

Fabulous location opposite town and facing the blue Tyrrhenian sea. The villa/hotel is a beautiful former monastery with adjacent Church, tucked away on the hill facing Tropea; it has been splendidly refurbished with great good taste and attention to design.There are only about 7 rooms,making for a select clientele, and it is surrounded by luxuriant gardens replete with many areas...

Villa Paola is without question one of the prettiest hotels we have ever stayed in. Everything about it is aesthetically pleasing, so much so that we were almost afraid to touch anything. Our four nights there were very quiet and relaxing, and the staff is helpful. I gave it three stars, however, because my husband and I both felt that... More

We will not come back. Too expensive, and we paid like 30 Euros per day to bring with us our dog and there was not even a bowl of water around. Structure is nice, so is the landscape and staff is friendly but this is not the place to stay if you don't want the owner coming every morning to... More

Beautiful, scenic, clean, luxurious, and very welcoming! A very relaxing place to stay with beautifully maintained grounds. Plenty of spaces to explore, read, relax. Breakfasts, which were included, were delicious and fresh everyday. They appear to have their own hens for fresh eggs, tomatoes, etc. The swimming pool was lovely with sea views and views of Port Tropea. The surrounding... More

We stayed at Villa Paola for 7 nights as part of a two week trip to Italy and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We chose this hotel due to the small number of rooms, the location and the stunning pictures which were on the website and we are glad we did. For the first three nights of our stay we were... More

This hotel opened in 2011 and has just six rooms. It is also the owners home and therefore has something of a feel of a luxury (and very expensive) B&B. We stayed in early May 2012 and were their first guests of the season. Our room had a beautiful sea view and fabulous shower. It was also the comfiest bed... More
