Think of activity holidays in Italy and your mind immediately conjures up vivid images of stunning coastlines with sparkling seas, sleepy terracotta villages, chic cities, delicious food, fine wines, architectural wonders, famous artists, fast cars and passionate, friendly people.

From the top to the toe of the famous boot, Italy has more than 7,600 kilometres of coastline. Travel to the far south and you'll discover the little-known region of Calabria. It has a dramatic coastline surrounded by two seas - the Tyrrhenian and the Ionian, deserted beaches, mountain ranges and three national parks. And it's here that we've based our Airone Beachclub

The coastline and hillsides of Calabria lend themselves to a wide range of activities, so it's a great destination for us. Come and grab yourself a little bit of La Dolce Vita with water sports in the beautiful Ionian Sea, cycling through rural hillsides and relaxing beside our gorgeous pool.

If you like the idea of setting off on an excursion during your holiday in Italy, there’s a lot on your doorstep in Calabria. The area has a hugely rich history with ancient archaeological sites, medieval towns, prehistoric caves and UNESCO World Heritage Sites to explore. Not to mention some amazing local bars and restaurants where you can feast on Italy’s famous cuisine to your heart’s content.
