Along the west coast of southern Italy hidden among the rugged landscape, San Nicola Arcella, a small resort with a traditional Italian feel and offers an authentic experience hard to find these days.
Il Faro dates back to 1400’s, a structure on the edge of town overlooking the Tyrhennian Sea. Set in grounds stretching over 3000 sq mtrs.

The views from the lighthouse are spectacular.
There are 3 terraces all with sea views which offer ample outside space to enjoy the long hot Calabrian summers.
The main structure of the B&B was built originally in the 70’s. The current owners restored the building 2009 which composes of a living area for the owners and includes a large living room just off from the covered terrace, a separate kitchen, bathroom and bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The living room has A/C units. The main building covers 1500 sq mtrs.
