Our family had a great vacation at hotel Ruralia. If you want to get close to the real Italian lifestyle in Calabria, this is the place to stay. What we appreciated most was the local food, cooked at the restaurant from local ingredients. We also appreciated the friendly atmosphere, the lovely garden and the owner who cared a lot about his guests. And the pool was beautiful -and clean! Staff was service-oriented.If you´re looking for a posh place with club-life, this is not your hotel but if you want to relax and just enjoy the silence, this is perfect. Our room would need a little update though, that`s the only suggestion from us. We will go back next year to the same hotel.

Lovely farm on a slope with a beautiful view of the Mediterranean sea exquisitly decorated in rural style surrounded with plants and trees. The four course dinners consisted of genuine Italian dishes and were the highlight of our visit. The rooms are quite simple but with focus on the necessities (like a well-functioning air conditioner). A small kitchen area allowed us to make our own lunches and the occassional Swedish "fika". Although the farm is very quiet and peaceful we always felt welcome with our children. Everyone in the staff helped to make the stay a joy with their service-oriented attitude.
Fantastic location and layout

Really nice place to relax with the family . Fabulous pool with stunning views. Good location to visit Tropea which was charming . The managers were very friendly and helpful . We stayed for dinner the first night but think we were unlucky as the food wasn't great. The breakfasts were good but we found it difficult to eat in the breakfast area because of the wasps when a member of our party has a severe allergy to wasp stings . Rooms were clean and basic but needed some upgrading . Door wouldn't close properly and TVs only had a few channels so we couldn't watch olympics 2016 as we expected to .
Relaxing Holiday, Excellent Restaurant

We stayed a week at Agriturismo Ruralia with our 3-month-old son and had a fantastic time. We were impressed that when we arrived, a travel cot was set up for our son and the staff were always very attentive and nice to him. In addition, the reviews about the restaurant are true - for just 25 EUR per person, all water, wine, appetizer, first course, second course, and dessert included. It is a menu with normally a fish (mostly swordfish) and non-fish option. The establishment is very down-to-earth and low-key (simply furnished as the reviews below note) but the food at the restaurant is of a very high standard. We were prepared for just receiving one coffee included in breakfast but it is so strong and good that you really don't need a second. You definitely need a car to really appreciate the area - the beach is a bit of a walk, and a car enables you to explore neighbouring towns e.g. Tropea, Capo Vaticano. Driving is a little stressful due to tailgating, narrow roads, and potholes so you need a confident driver and having a GPS helps too. It would be helpful if there was a mirror at the hotel entrance so you could more easily see cars whip around the corner. We would be happy to stay here again.
