Villa Velia is located on a high ridge overlooking the entire Angitola Valley, with views of the lake and the sea. Villa Velia offers individual rooms as well as suites for families that include kitchen facilities, all with private baths. Antiques decorate the rooms which are simple yet elegant in style. From all of the rooms and common areas, guests enjoy views of the garden or more distant vistas of the lovely surrounding countryside. The most glorious moment of the day can be enjoyed from the tower at sunset and on clear days may include an amazing view of the volcanoes at Stromboli in the Aeolian Islands and Etna in Sicily.
In the Restaurant and Tasting Room at Villa Velia, you can sample the local agricultural products of our own farmhouse and explore the delights of the best cuisine of Calabria. For our guests we offer foods that accent the ancient flavors of the Angitola Valley. The extra virgin olive oil produced in our famhouse and the full-bodied wine of the Angitola Valley rule the table, marrying beautifully with our unique traditional dishes. While your palate is satisfied by the savory tastes of true Calabrese cuisine, your spirit will relax while enjoying the panoramic view from our hilltop restaurant.
