Hotel Restaurant

Indulge in a delicious breakfast which is served every morning on Villa Paola’s panoramic terrace overlooking the breath-taking coast of the gods and Tropea’s unique fortress. There’re breads, cakes, jams salami and cheese aplenty (all locally sourced of course!), but the crowning glory of the buffet has to be the fresh produce from Villa Paola’s very own kitchen gardens.

From tomatoes to oranges, lemons to grapefruits, apricots to peaches, pears, plums and blackberries, the variety of fruits will get your morning off to a fragrant and colourful start!
Other Restaurant Nearby
The lively centre of Tropea is a 15-minute stroll, the concierge at Villa Paola will happily reccomend on the best dining. We stop for a lunch at Koes and thought that the seafood mix fried, enjoyed on the terrace over a great vista, was terrific.


Villa Paola is located just outside the centre of Tropea in a strategic position, especially if you arrive by car. The hotel is 1.8 km from Norman Cathedral and 2.3 km from the beach of Tropea.
