Villa Paola is a luxurious destination wedding venue nestled along the Tyrrhenian Sea in Tropea, Italy. This historic hotel dates back to 1543 and was originally a friary for the Order of Minims. After undergoing a loving and thoughtful renovation, it now harmoniously blends ancient architecture with modern comforts. The tranquillity of the hotel's spiritual roots is evident in the light and airy design, which creates a romantic and relaxing atmosphere.
Facilities and Capacity
Villa Paola has several wedding locations where you can host up to 80 guests. These include the Belvedere Terrace, the Sea View garden, the restaurant terrace, and an indoor lounge. The ceremony spot in the garden, which overlooks the serene ocean and rugged Calabrian coastline, is particularly magical. After tying the knot in seclusion and sophistication, you can enjoy al fresco dining surrounded by lush palms, orange and lemon trees, jasmine, and bougainvillea. The rose pink exterior of the hotel will create a breathtaking backdrop, along with the twinkling lights of the nearby Tropea.
Villa Paola has 12 sea view rooms that are equipped with large walk-in showers, L'Occitane toiletries, flatscreen TVs, air-conditioning, and more. These are designed with contemporary style and vintage furnishings for a charmingly retro yet modern aesthetic. Catering is also provided by the venue. Meals are prepared using fresh, seasonal ingredients, and produce is grown in the on-site garden and cultivated by local farmers. For your wedding, the staff will work hard to ensure all your dreams come true. They offer symbolic ceremonies, a welcome drink, and a party and after-party.
Villa Paola is located in the region of Calabria, which makes up the "toe" of Italy's boot. This area is known for its rocky coast, quaint villages, and great beeches. The climate is hot, but breezes from off the Mediterranean will keep you cool in the summer months. The closest airport is the Lamezia Terme International Airport, situated just an hour away.
