|Camigliatello in La Sila National Park, Calabria|
So far this blog was all about renovating and decorating a Beach House.
Now, we did it. Okay, it still needs some improvements and probably constant re-renovation work - but mainly we are done. And we are really happy with the result.
Strangely, when I saw the latest interior magazine AD during our skiing holidays in Europe, with lots of snow outside, and all these cozy homes and restaurants in the mountains with wooden fires inside ... I started dreaming ...
Sounds crazy, I know. - Shouldn't I focus on our beach house?
But then I remembered, that Calabria has not only 800 km of coast line to offer. Calabria is quiet hilly and has mountains up to 2,000 meters high above sea level. And when it snows, you can ski! Yes, there are a few ski lifts!
The most important "ski resorts" in Calabria are Camigliatello and Villaggio Palumbo in La Sila and Gambarie in Aspromonte. Both mountainous regions are National Parks.
|Pizzo --> Sila app. 120 km and 1,5h drive (via Google Map)|
La Sila is about 120 km North of Pizzo and the Aspromonte about 100 km South. We could reach a ski resort from Pizzo in aobut 1,5 hours drive !
From the sea to the mountains in no time. The highest mountain in Sila, Botte Donato (1,928 m) is covered with snow right now. Information about snow levels at Camigliatello via Skiinfo. There are two ski lifts only, but this will do for us when in Calabria in winter!
