The house is in Vibo Valentia, Calabria.
Calabria has got strong nature, beautiful sea and beautiful mountains.
The nearest beach is 8.8 Km far to my house and it is possible to go with a bus (with me too, if I go). The most famous and beautiful beaches are Tropea and Capo Vaticano 25 km away from my house (check the photos on google). Many busses to Tropea in the summer. This part of cost is named "Costa degli Dei" ("Gods Coast")
You can visit my favorite beach, the "Paradiso del Sub" in Zambrone (check the photos on google)
Sometimes I go for walk or hike on the mountain, alone or in group. If you like to come, you can see the beautiful montains in this part of the world
If you like history, Vibo Valentia has a very long history, from the neolithic. You can see a museum, a castle, Roman era mosaics, ancient palaces, etc. More informations on wikipedia (in italian)
