Excellent holiday at Montalto Uffugo

  • 5 of 5

We have nothing but praise for our stay at the casale. We were greeted by the owner's son Pierpaolo who kindly travelled to meet us so that we did not get lost. The house (or more accurately houses) was excellent for our needs. It slept 8 but as we were only two we had masses of room. The house was very clean and well maintained. It was well away from other people yet was within easy reach of local villages. We used it as a base for walking up the hills for several days. At other times we walked across the valley to villages beyond.

Considering it was Italy we saw very few tourists on our side of the valley. On other days we used the car to travel to the Sila National Park and walked around some of the lakes where there were more tourists. The location of the house was excellent for very different types of activity. It was only about 25 minutes to the beach at Paola.

As we were on vacation in early October the weather was not overbearing and suited us. The land around the house is very private and you could spend your days there without being disturbed if you wished to do this. On leaving the front door you are immediately among olive groves!

The facilities of a tennis court / mini football is excellent for families or larger groups. Just below the casale is a small restaurant which was very handy when we did not feel like eating in.

The photos do not do the houses justice and we were amazed at the space we had. We were even given a choice of which accommodation we wanted when we arrived (the big house, the studio attached to it or a separate house just below) we chose the big house!

Facilities were up to date eg two bathrooms, utility room as well as three dedicated bedrooms. They had evidently been refurbished recently to a good standard. There is a permanent canopy and outside table for breakfast which we used every morning and would be good for evening meals earlier in the season I suspect.

As the owner live a few hundred metres from the house they were always on hand to help out if needed. Pierpaolo (the son) regularly enquired how things were going and was very helpful in recommending areas to see or restaurants etc. WiFi was available for my iPhone near the owners house and it was useful to check emails every few days.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the property to families, couples or someone wanting a quiet time away. If we return to Calabria we will definitely come back to stay.

Family holiday in Calabria

We spent a wonderful 8-days holiday with our 3 little sons in Montalto surrounded by olive trees, fig trees, chestnut trees, sheep, cute friendly dogs and the warmth, care and friendliness of our hosts Giulia and Pierpaolo . We enjoyed the warm weather, the tranquillity and the large sandy Mediterranean beach 30 minutes' drive away from the property. The house provides everything you need for a relaxed stay.
