About the property

Villa with 3 bedrooms for 6 persons in authentic italy

Beautiful pearl in unknown Calabria. Private house (sleeps 6 people) of family from Hilversum with all the luxuries - air conditioning in all rooms and top cuisine. There is also satellite TV and a DVD player. Games and DVDs available.

Come for the real non-touristy Italy to Calabria, where the people are pure and friendly and happy to receive tourists in their unknown Calabria. Our house is located in an oasis of tranquility within an old family estate.

Our terrace is overlooking the Ionian Sea, which is a 5 min drive away. You also have the option to have 2 beach beds with umbrellas to have a private beach of a 4 * beach club which is 4 km away.

You come here to rest and have the ability to exercise, walk, go to sea and possibly make a side trip to the largest island in Europe, Sicily, or to extend your holiday with a stay in Sicily. The crossing is made in San Giovanni by a ferry to Messina. San Giovanni is approximately 2.5 hours drive from our villa.

Direct flights to Lamezia Terme are from Amsterdam (Transavia), Weeze (Ryanair) and Charleroi (Ryanair). Lamezia Terme is 88 km from our villa.

Mari et monti. Maison très comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

On a passé des super vacances à la côte ionique avec nos 4 entants début avril 2016. Il faisait déjà très beau. La maison est très bien equippé et comfortable. La vue sur la mer est splendide. Située dans un endroit très calme sur la coline. 4km de la plage. Mare et monti. Une base parfait pour découvrir une région hospitaliaire. Parfait pour visiter des endroits authentiques dans la montagne (Stilo) ou à la mère (Tovarno). Propriétaire très sympathique et correct.

Charming relaxing great view out of the mass

  • 5 of 5

The property is 15' above the beaches in a private complex, very calm, it has an amazing landscape over the surrounding hills and the sea. The beaches are out of the mass tourism and well preserved. The house is clean, beautiful and classy furnished. Monique the owner is kind and helpful. Ideal for families.

Wunderbare Urlaubswochen in super Haus u. Lage !!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben diesen Sommer zwei wundervolle Urlaubswochen in dem schönen Haus mit der großen Terrasse verbracht. Der Blick ist einmalig über die Hänge bis zum Meer, die Ruhe sorgt für absolute Erholung – und in der gut ausgestatteten Küche kann man auf dem großen Gasherd wunderbar ein Abendessen zubereiten, während draußen auf der zweiten Terrasse der Tisch gedeckt wird. Spieleabende draußen gab es jeden Tag und eine Tischtennisplatte sorgt für weitere Abwechslung. Wir haben uns jeden Tag auf unseren Strand gefreut, den wir nahezu für uns alleine hatten (wir waren zwischen Badolato Marina und Santa Caterina dello Ionio Marina.) Aber auch auf der großen Hauptterrasse fand jeder einen gemütlichen, schattigen Platz auf den tollen Loungemöbeln… Besonders verzaubert auf unseren Ausflügen hat uns Gerace – insgesamt ein rundum gelungener Urlaub!

Monique, Danke für die wertvollen Tipps und die gute Erreichbarkeit bei Fragen !!! :-)

Beautiful pearl unknown Calabria. Come for the real non-tourist to Italy Calabria and stay in an oasis of calm in an old Italian family estate. The terrace of our villa overlooks the azure Ionian sea, which is about 5 min drive away. Nature lovers touring in the Parco Nazionale Aspromonte and Silamassief, it is still true wilderness, surrounded by old deserted medieval villages where time stands still, as Gerace and Stilo.

Celebrities like Gianni Versace and Pythogoras come from Calabria.

The Calabrian cuisine is pure with lots of fish and pasta, preferably used with some red peppers .. in our village of 2500 inhabitants is the best restaurant Escalibur of the region Calabria. Escalibur has already won several awards. We have à special service with à beach resort 5 min away where you can enjoy the private beach and swimming pool.

Direct flights from Amsterdam (Transavia), Weeze (Ryanair) and Charleroi (Ryanair) to Lamezia Terme, the southernmost international airport in Italy. Now 2nd week in May and June competitively priced. For more information send an email to monique.dokter@
