The neighbourhood

San Luca: Is situated near the village of Amaroni that is a populated place and located in Provincia di Catanzaro.

Calabria contains startling natural beauty and spectacular towns that seem to grow out of the craggy mountaintops. Calabria is around 90% hills, but skirted by some 800 km of Italy’s finest coast. There are hundreds of music and food festivals here year-round, reaching a fever pitch in July and August.

Calabria is a small underdeveloped region which forms the tip of the Italian peninsula. The population is small at only about persons and the economy, though growing, is weak. The region is difficult to navigate through the mountains and because of this communication networks and adequate road and rail systems have been hard to establish.

Calabria is fortunate to have a great deal of forested land and as a result most industry is developed around construction and building. Textile, clothing, and chemical industries are also present in the region. A substantial portion of the regions economic resources stem from the production and sale of handicrafts by individuals and very small family businesses. Tourism, which is increasing, also plays a major part in the Calabrian economy and is the motive behind some of the region's most recent technological advancements.
Calabria has a beautiful coastline which was under distress due to pollution caused by improper waste disposal and annual flooding. Recently the government of Calabria, in an effort to preserve and protect its valuable coastline, has taken guaranteed no teletrack steps to create the most efficient and well designed water treatment system in all of Italy. Calabria now boasts one of the cleanest, nicest coastlines in on the peninsula.

Calabria forms the toe of the Italian boot and is bordered by Basilicata and sandwiched in between the Ionian and Tyrrhenian seas. There is a lot of coastline in Calabria. No part of the region is more than 50km away from the coast. Calabria covers and area of just 15,000 km² and is made up of five provinces: Catanzaro, Consenza, Reggio di Calabria, Crotone, and Vibo Valentia. Cantanzaro is the capital of the region, but regional parliament is held in the former regional capital, Reggio di Calabria.

Calabria has awesome tourist potential. Currently the area is not overwhelmed by tourists. The picturesque scenery of Calabria will one day beckon hordes of people because no where else can one view such a beautiful panorama of nature. Tall, snow tipped mountains give way to thick luscious forests, white sand beaches, sapphire coast lines and crystal oceans. At the same time this setting is just a backdrop to wonderful rustic villas and impressive Greek ruins. Those interested in Greek history will find Calabria a great vacation spot. Because of Calabria's Greek heritage the region is full of Greek ruins. In between gorgeous rustic mountain tops and lush olive stand small villas that conceal a rich history of Mediterranean influence. Ruins can even be found underwater near the shore line. Hobby divers often visit Calabria to see the many ruins left underwater by ships damaged off the coast.

Calabria hosts several world class sea side resorts as well as wonderful mountain top resorts dedicated to winter sports. Tourists will also enjoy watching local artisans produce any number of handicrafts, pottery and ceramics being the most common. Local restaurants serve the finest in Mediterranean influenced foods. Most of the cuisine of Calabria is heavily influenced by the Mediterranean. Pasta dishes involving peppers, onions and sausage sauteed with or without sauce are very common. Frittatas made with pasta and sausage mixed into the eggs are also prevalent. Eggplant is a favorite dish in the region and is served in a variety of ways. Like the food of Basilicata, Calabria cuisine is often very spicy and sometimes involves the use of chili peppers. Seafood in all its forms are highly popular as well as pork. Tourist might also enjoy one of the numerous festivals held in Calabria such as:
Caccuri hosts an Easter Procession each Good Friday
Silano host a wild mushroom festival in October
Cantazaro also hosts an Easter Procession on Good Friday
Laureana di Borello hosts a Madonna del Carmine Festival in July
Villagio Mancuso hosts a Calabrian Folklore festival in September
Cosenza hosts the Festival delle Invasioni in July
Altomonte hosts the Festival of the Tow Seas in July
Lido di Palmi hosts a Maritime Procession of the Madonna in August
Cutro hosts a crucifixion parade in May
Bagnara hosts a swordfish festival in July
Soverato Superiore hosts an eggplant festival in September
Corigliano Calabro hosts an Orange festival and parade in January
Spilinga hosts a sausage festival in August
Paria a Mare hosts a festival for the Madonna della Grotta in August

Calabria is still being discovered by tourists. The natural beauty of the area has not been spoiled by hotel chains and fast food. There are no huge crowds to contend with. The mountains still shine down beautifully, the coast is still clear and uncomplicated, the food is still indigenous to the region, and the people are still living the Italian way. Destinations like Calabria will not stay perfect forever.

As people learn about the rich history of the region and the overwhelming presence of wonderful artifacts and artwork that fills the region visitors will begin to flock to Calabria. Right now Calabria is a perfect vacation spot for the nature lover, scuba diver, sun bather, shopper, and history connoisseur alike. The Calabrian landscape with its ancient relics and modern farmsteads is a wonder to behold. The region is rich with art, religion, history, and culture. There is something for everyone in Calabria.

Staying in San Luca was an thoroughly splendid experience. Maria and Rafaelle went out of thier way to provide me with an impeccable level of Calabrian hospitality. Their nearly one hectare villa is clean, safe, spacious, well maintained and includes a WI-FI network. I enjoyed having breakfast outside every morning underneath the massive qiwi plant that overlooks the various fruit trees: grapes, figs, pears, apples, plums, lemons, persimmons, prickly pears, olives, and an awesome variety of flowers. They kindly provided me with samples of their delicious homemade olive oil, and various fruit jams. I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of their products. Also, they live very close to a water fountain that provides them with pure clean mountain water. The air quality in the area is exceptional and provides for some very comfortable breezes throughout the home. The view from the balcony is lovely and makes it a great place to enjoy a meal. I'm convinced the sum total of the natural elements in the area had a rejuvenating effect and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to get away for a relaxing holiday. I will definitely be visiting again in the future. Grazie Maria e Rafaelle.
