Note:

This contemporary villa would ideally suit families and couples alike. Furthermore, with its 3rd bedroom and extra bedding arrangements available on site, larger groups are also a strong possibility. The accommodation is comfortable and functional with the large first floor terrace giving the most amazing sea views. Note - Bug busters are provided in the villa. The Villa is as stated "Home from Home" and the added bonus of "Personal Service" Complimentary Welcome Pack provided for the No. in Party, inclusive of all immediate needs on arrival until Party settled and can visit the Local Supermarket, personal attention from "Yvonne" local English/Italian Agent who along with her Italian Husband lives locally and is there to "Meet and Greet" you are assured of the "Personal Attention" in all matters regarding your Holiday or Enquiries relating to Villa etc. Very helpful if like myself "April" you cannot speak the Language. Attention and support at the end of a telephone, few miles away.

Further Details:

The villa lies just off the main coastal road (SS18). This relatively straight picturesque road will take you as far North as Maratea or South to Tropea and onwards to Reggio di Calabria. Once you are accustomed to driving in Italy, you will find it fairly easy to find your way around, especially when using the SS18.

The nearest supermarket (Vivo) can be found just a 5 min drive from the villa heading North towards Belvedere on the left hand side of the road. Here you will find a wide variety of goods at very reasonable prices. The nearest cashpoint and Cafe Bar is also located just before Vivo on the right along with Hotel and Restaurant. There are also larger hypermarkets (Il Tirenno, IperSpa) found along the SS18 just outside of Belvedere (15 min drive).

You can choose to head South into Cetraro, (10 min drive) or North to Belvedere and Diamante, (15 - 20 min drive). Both of which offer great choice in shopping, restaurants, cafes, bars and coastal promenades. Belvedere and Diamante are the largest but we do give you a very informative guide on what to do in and around Calabria upon arrival at the villa.

There is a fantastic market in Belvedere on Wed, Cetraro on Thurs and Diamante on Fri. These generally start early morning and finish around 1 in the afternoon (Calabrians like to take a Siesta from 1pm - 4pm and you will find most places will be closed during these times, except in August at peak season).

For more information or if you have any queries, please either contact myself or refer to the guide upon arrival. This guide is very extensive but also easy to read and provides you with all your Calabrian needs. As again, please feel free to contact me should you require more info prior to your booking.

All around this traditional and friendly area of Calabria, Bonifati there are stunning beaches, promenades with Pizza and Ice Cream Parlours "old Italy" great value. Alternatively dine under stars al fresco on promenades or balconies overlooking sea.

Owner's Response: Carla such a pleasure to hear that you really enjoyed the stay at "Villa Aprile" my Home from Home property in Bonifati, there is so much to see and do in this area of Southern Italy as you say and hopefully the facilities on the beautiful complex like the Swimming Pool, Privacy, Ideal views all fulfilled your expectations. It is lovely to hear such positive comments it makes all the hard work and planning worthwhile and is very much appreciated, I accept sometimes things are negative too but still look for feedback particularly on the services of both myself and my excellent Agent "Yvonne" as you are Italian descent I count it as a privelage you chose my Property, thank you so much for the Friendship too you would be all welcome back anytime. Kindest Regards. Grazie. April Tuckwell.

We stayed in the villa for 10 days in August. We were very impressed with the villa's facilities, its space, its coolness in hot weather, its wonderful balcony and its tremendous views. We used the pool regularly and that was great. There were 6 of us, all adults and it was easily big enough for all of us. We ate outside in the garden on several occasions and frequently ate in the local restaurants. The food and drinks locally are well priced, we could eat for 10 euros per person including drinks at all of the local pizzerias. The sea is close and most days we swam in the sea. We particularly liked the beach at Diamonte South but, although it is some distance away, the beach at Tropea is one of the finest in the world. Belvedere is a spectacular town and great for a walk round and great coffee.

Owner's Response: Stephen and Family/Girlfriends etc. I am so pleased that you enjoyed all the facilities at "Villa Aprile" it was a real pleasure to get to know you over the months before as you were an "early booking" I am always pleased to receive reviews that are positive and both myself and my English Italian Speaking Agent "Yvonne" do all we can to provide as much assistance as possible as a "Silver Surfer" have frequently had to rely on my Eldest Son Scott to help, a great bonus. The travelling further afield using Bonifati as base was excellent as you say right at the other end "Tropea" fantastic and beautiful but ALL of Calabria traditional and a secret for years that we can all share the views are stunning and my Villa "Home from Home" has been very well accepted by UK. and Overseas and indeed Italian tourists which is heartwarming for me. Thank you for the friendship and contact over the last few months so glad everything was as you expected and as you say "not long enough" welcome back anytime in the future. Thank you once again. April Tuckwell.
