INCREDIBLE STAY IN CALABRIA FOR AMERICAN COUPLE

  • 5 of 5
I had the most fantastic time staying at this property. The room is located on an amazing, rustic, Italian olive orchard location that overlooks the blue seas of Calabria. The view from the house was absolutely stunning and there was plenty of area outside to relax and enjoy nature. The property is incredibly designed and very new (built in last ten years). Elena was a most gracious guest. Everything was clean, organized, and available. Elena allowed us full access to her kitchen and common room, although we spent most of our time in our room and wonderful, sleek bathroom. This was an amazing, high-end, romantic trip for my girlfriend and I. I could not more enthusiastically endorse this location. I have stayed in Italy and in Calabria multiple times, and this is by far the best experience I have had.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your great review! I do really hope to see you again next year and again and again. For me it is important that my guests can have a wonderful experience in their holiday. Calabria is wonderful in the landscape and the sea side, but it is also very important to me to give them the best experience that is possible for their staying in the house. I really do love the place and the house and I am committed to show the best we have. I really appreciate what you have written. Thank you again. Elena

BEST VIEW YOU'LL FIND

Elena's "suite" in her home is an amazing place to spend a vacation! I have been coming every summer since I discovered this treasure. It is absolutely beautiful, with a kitchen, bathroom, outdoor area, and large bedroom. The place is cleaned for each visitor, and there are plenty of cooking supplies, sheets, towels, etc.

Elena also has no problems with renters using her terrace, which is undoubtedly the best view of the sunset available. The atmosphere is quiet and peaceful, and it is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy some wine and a good book.

The beaches are eventful and only a five minute drive away - my favorite is Riaci, which has stone formations that you can swim through, but Formicoli's islands are a close second! There are also many good restaurants in Tropea, which is a 10-15 min drive, and even closer in Brattiro (the Ritrovo is only 1-2 min away).

QUIET COUNTRYSIDE SMALLHOLDING WITH 600+ OLIVE TRE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the suite for 4 whole weeks in May and quickly became immersed into the rural tranquility and peace this property offers. In planning our month's stay there, the owner was helpful and communicative regarding all our inquiries and preparations.
We drove from North Wales, to this peaceful haven to be greeted by the friendly dogs and much warmer Calabrian spring weather. The town of Tropea was close by, as was the village of Brattira, just up the hill. Plenty of options for eating out as well as stores to supply our catering needs. The size of the property allowed us to fully relax and savor the surrounding countryside, whilst Santa Domenica beach, which we quite often had to our solitary selves was just 10 mins drive down the hill.
The owner was away for some periods, but we were fully informed of her plans and were left with plenty of information and directions as such we needed. Whilst she was away, the dogs presence gave a sense of belonging and security and it was wonderful to be greeted by 4 gamboling dogs every time we returned from our journeys. The property allows plenty of scope for exploring the region, and also with the ferry being about 1.5 hrs away, it allowed us a short 5 day excursion to Sicily.
To sum up, the property is neat, tidy and clean, and with the small kitchen and 2 bathrooms, large grounds, we were able to completely relax and enjoy all that the area offers for visitors.
Finally Elena, thank you for the warm welcome you gave to us, together with interesting facts and stories about your property and the surrounding areas.

PLACE OF PEACE

  • 5 of 5
It was a wondertime spent at the beginnin of March at Elena's farm.

The building, the sight is beautiful, peaceful, a great place to relax or think over your problems. Beautiful yellow flowers all around in the grass or at the mimosa-trees...

The season was great too: we could have nice sunbath, not too cold, not too warm.
The dogs were indeed friendly and avoiding contact with guests.

Tropea is close by car, the seashore is just fabulous.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. It was great indeed having you here. You can find these yellow flowers (oxalis pes-caprae is the latin name, or acetosella in italian or Sauerklee in german) during winter and spring. Yellow and green are the color of february, march, and april.
In these months, if it is not raining and the sun is shining, you think you are in a different world while in Central and Northern Europe it is really cold and often with snow.
Here in Calabria there are flowers...

WUNDERSCHÖNER URLAUBSORT - AUCH IM WINTER

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren über Weihnachten und Sylvester im Ferienhaus. Durch die gedämmten Wände und dichten(!) Fenster war es ein Leichtes, das Haus in kühleren Abendstunden zu heizen. Das haben wir im Mittelmeerraum so noch nicht erlebt. Die Beschreibung im Inserat ist perfekt, ehrlich und genau. Das Haus ist supersauber, geschmackvoll und praktisch eingerichtet. Obwohl die Vermieterin selbst nicht anwesend war, wurden wir herzlich empfangen. Kalabrien ist wunderschön und im Winter gibt es nur wenige Touristen. Wir haben meist selbst gekocht und waren auf Empfehlung der Vermieterin einmal im Nachbardorf Brattiro im sehr empfehlenswerten al Ritrovo beim Essen.
Während unseres Aufenthalts haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können daher das Domizil unbedingt weiterempfehlen.

Owner's Response: Kalabrien im Winter zu geniessen ist etwas grossartiges! Natürlich ist die Voraussetzung eine anständige Heizung und isolierte Fenster zu haben, wie bei mir. Es freut mich dass sie sich so wohl gefühlt haben. Vielen Dank für ihre Bewertung!

BLICK AUFS MEER

  • 5 of 5
Herzlicher Empfang, optimale Betreuung, hilfreiche Tipps.
Die Suite war genauso wie in der Anzeige beschrieben. Kleine, gemütliche Räumlichkeiten, jedoch haben wir uns meist im Freien aufgehalten. Sehr schöner Sitzplatz mit traumhaftem Blick aufs Meer. Ruhig gelegen in einem Olivenhain. So ähnlich stellen wir uns das Paradies vor. Mechthild und Klaus

Owner's Response: Es freut mich sehr, dass ihr euch so wohl gefühlt habt. Danke für das Mithelfen bei der Olivenernte. Es war schön mit euch das neue grüne (biologisch) Öl zu kosten. (Wir haben eine eigene Ölpresse und es ist wunderschön von den Oliven zum Olivenöl zu erleben). Ich freue mich auf ein Wiedersehen nächstes Jahr!
