Popilia Country Resort by the Callipo Group
Between Pizzo and Vibo Valentia, only 10 minutes’ drive from the Mediterranean sandy beaches was built the Popilia Country Resort. The name of the hotel was inspired by an ancient Roman Street, called Annia Popilia, which in those times linked Rome to the south of Italy. Surrounded by 140 hectares of the rolling Calabrina Valley, it overlooks the picturesque gulf of Sant’Eufemia.
