PERFECT FOR PEACE AND QUIET

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the house in March and were pleasantly surprised at how warm the weather was when we arrived. In fact we spent the afternoon of our arrival sitting in the sunshine on the terrace. The house itself is situated in a very quiet spot in the valley. There are only a handful of houses nearby. The views are stunning and across the valley the village of Fiumefreddo Bruzio sits on the hill. You can just see the sea from the terrace. The house is perfect if you want somewhere to get away to for some peace and quiet. It is blissfully quiet and in the evening all you can hear are the cute croaking frogs. There are beaches nearby and you can also take a trip up to the Sila national park which was still snow covered when we visited.
The house is very spacious and has been very tastefully decorated throughout. A lovely place to stay. Thank you!

VERY PEACEFUL GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5
Stayed in the property for 8 days in early October. The house itself is well presented and has a nice 'homely' feel. It's located along a small track amongst a few other properties, all owned by friendly locals. Located in the hills around Fiumefreddo Bruzio, it is a perfect place for a relaxing holiday, with stunning beaches minutes away.

Local restaurants are lovely, serving good food at excellent prices.

Have recommended to friends looking for a relaxing, peaceful holiday.

LA NOSTRA VACANZA.-

  • 5 of 5
Abbiamo trovato una bella casa, arredata con gusto e con tutti gli accessori e l'attrezzatura necessaria a farci sentire come a casa nostra.
Veramente non manca proprio nulla !
Se preferite una spiaggia meno affollata rispetto a quella di Fiumefreddo Vi consigliamo quella di Longobardi a soli 3 km in direzione Amantea.
Un grazie di cuore a Peter e a Carmine che ci ha deliziato con i suoi prodotti dell'orto !

Owner's Response: The beach at San Lucido is ideal for families with small children as it is sandy and a more gentle slope into the sea.
La spiaggia di San Lucido è l'ideale per famiglie con bambini piccoli in quanto è di sabbia e una pendenza più dolce verso il mare

SONNENAUFGANG HINTER DEM SCHÖNSTEN BERG KALABRIEN

  • 5 of 5
Das etwas abseits und schön gelegene Haus bietet allen erdenklichen Komfort und ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet. Es ist ein optimaler Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge und Wanderungen. Jeden Morgen kann man die Sonne hinter dem Monte Cocuzzo, dem schönsten Berg Kalabriens (laut Rother-Wanderführer) aufgehen sehen. Der Monte Guono ist ganz in der Nähe und sogar zu Fuß vom Haus aus zu erreichen. Wir konnten im November sogar noch im Meer baden und waren am kilometerlangen Strand ganz alleine. Der Vermieter und die Betreuerin vor Ort waren sehr unkompliziert und nett.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden jeder Zeit wieder in diesem Haus Urlaub machen.

Casa Toddi is a villetta set in 2000 sq metres of land set on a hillside across the valley from the ancient village of Fiumefreddo Bruzio. We are 200metres above sea level. The house is in the locality of Mitisci along with four other properties which are all inhabited by local families. The access the house is via a narrow mountain road from the SS18 and then along a small track for about 150metres.

The local towns and villages date back to the medievial times and are generally untouched by time. The coastal drive from the airport is easy with beautiful views at every turn. Within a half a days drive is the Ionian coast (south coast) of Calabria,Tropea the jewel of Calabria. Travel north to the beautiful Cilento Park or venture inland to La Sila one of the 3 national parks covering large tracts of the highlands with the summit of Botte Donato reaching 1,928 metres. Wonderful alpine walking country and winter skiing.

Fiumefreddo Marina has Greengrocers, Butchers and a Fresh fish stall. Just along the SS18 is L'Ancora the local supermarket, which sell most daily requirements, including an excellent butchers.Outside is another fresh fish stall, at it's best when cooked on a bar-b-que. L'Ancora itself is a gorgeous cafe with pizza, fresh expresso coffee, tempting gelati (ice creams) and trays of the most wonderful cakes.

Just 12 km along the SS18 is Amantea where there is a good selection of restaurants and Via Margarita the main street houses many of the top fashion names. Note that shops are generally close bewteen 2-5pm, but open until 8pm
