An hotel on the sea, one of the most beautiful view of the Italian coast in Calabria
Extract from Travel Intelligence Hotel Review
On one of the most enchanting stretches of the Calabrian coast, the Porto Pirgos is a small and unpretentiously peaceful hotel set by the sea among lush eucalyptus, olive and bouganvillea. The complex has been converted from an old patrician residence and the décor is a blend of the old and new - the 18 rooms are well furnished with antiques alongside terracotta works by local craftsmen. All have magnificently styled marble bathrooms and a private terrace each…
A colonnaded terrace and mosaic floored restaurant look out to sea.

The Hotel offers 18 double rooms, all with antique furniture, air-conditioning, TV, fridge-bar, safe and indipendent furnished balcony.
The old-England porcelain bathrooms are beautiful, and the elegant mauve-green tapestry, the refined flowery bedcovers and the antique brass beds are arranged differently from room to room.
Most of the hotel has been refurbished, harmonising the antique terracotta-tile floor with the wrought-iron details, and arranging the antique and valuable furniture gathered from all over the world with the local terracotta articles.
In its complex original structure, a restored old courtly residence, the hotel preserves its Spanish-style traces characterised by the precious mosaic floor that, today, adorns the inside dining room, and the collonade of its terraces which are open dining rooms with a fantastic view of the sea, and which give to the Hotel the romantic taste of the "relais".
Porto Pirgos Hotel is the ideal place for people who love the sun and the sea. If you feel lazy you can relax on the sunbeds around the large and the scenic swimming-pool with jacuzzi situated in the middle of a wide garden. If you are fond of the seaside, you can go down the private beach where parasols, deckchairs and sunbeds are at your disposal together with another swimming-pool and small bar. If you prefer to go outside, a range of means can be found: from engine-power boat to windsurf, from canoes to pedalos and to the useful shuttle-bus to get around the park.
