Think of Italy and your mind immediately conjures up vivid images of stunning coastlines with sparkling seas, pretty pastel coloured villages, captivating 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 7600 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.
The coastline and hillsides of Calabria lend themselves to a wide range of activities. It's a great destination and home to Airone Beachclub. Come and join us for dinghy sailing, windsurfing, stand up paddle boarding and kayaking in the sparkling Ionian Sea, or mountain biking and road cycling through rural hillsides and grab yourself a little bit of La Dolce Vita.
As you would expect summer in Italy is lovely and warm, with temperatures in the peak summer months of July and August regularly topping out in the mid to high 30’s. You’ll want to be close to the water with these temperatures, so head to the beach and take to the water on a kayak, dinghy or windsurf.
May and June tend to be a more manageable temperature although the sea may still be a little fresh. September days are lovely and the sea is still warm enough to swim in.
