About Valentina

My name is Valentina and I'm an Italian living and working in UK. The villa is our family holiday home. We love it and it's ideal for our young son who can play safely in the gated garden.

Valentina purchased this villa in 2015

Why Valentina chose Santa Maria

The property is located in an amazing area of Calabria, with great view from the garden. It is recommended for families with children because of the big gated outside space and for being located close to a sandy beach. Although it is also ideal for friends or couples who want to have privacy but not far from the Tropea city centre and most amenities. The closest town of Ricadi is only 5 mins driving and there are groceries shops even closer. The house has also been recently refurbished.

What makes this villa unique

Amazing view of the sea, privacy, sandy beaches, safe for children, close to amenities

Climat et vue memorables

  • 4 of 5

Avons passe 15 jours en famille au mois d'aôut. Un mot: Super.

La maison correspond exactement a ce dont nous avons besoin pour une famille de 5. Vue et terrasse superbes. Interieur et exterieur arranges avec gôut. La cuisine moderne avec lave-vaisselle, le lave linge, le barbecue...tres pratique. Le must, une douche interieure et une douche interieure ainsi qu'un hamaque entre les oliviers. 5 minutes de marche pour se rendre a la plage et 10 pour revenir (ca monte). A conseiller sans hesiter. Tres bon accueil de la personne qui nous attendait et Valentina tres serviable. Merci.

Gelungener Urlaub in Kalabrien

  • 5 of 5

Es war wunderschön, das Haus ist sehr gemütlich und gut eingerichtet, vor allem den Geschirrspüler haben wir genossen. Das einzige kleine Problem ist die Einfahrt, für ein großes Auto bedarf es eines guten Fahrers um ein und aus zu kommen. Die Lage ist super auf dem Hügel, auch bei großer Hitze findet man immer angenehm temperiert Plätze, wir können das Quartier nur weiter empfehlen, auch die Vermieterin ist über SMS sehr hilfsbereit und nett

Auch im Oktober noch grandios!

  • 5 of 5

Eine wunderbare Woche im Oktober! All die tollen und berühmten Strände waren leer und in den Städtchen wie Tropea war trotzdem noch was los. Das Meer war noch warm und lud immer wieder zum Baden ein. Unterm Strich vielleicht fast die schönere Zeit für einen Sommerurlaub. So ein tolles Licht mit starken Kontrasten und kräftigen Farben gibt es halt auch erst im Herbst. Die Abende ließen sich alle draußen verbringen, allerdings dann mit langer Hose und Jacke ...

Valentinas Haus lässt nichts zu wünschen übrig! Alles in Ordnung, sauber und gepflegt! Valentina fragt sehr rührig immer wieder mal nach, ob alles passt und in Ordnung ist und die "rasende" Schlüsseldame Anna erklärt alles genau, fragt auch nach und bringt vorbei, was sie vielleicht noch für nötig hält ... (in unserem Fall eine Heizung und zusätzliche Decken - was beides ob des grandiosen Wetters überhaupt nicht nötig war!). Die Terrassen sind mit verschiedenen schönen Sitzmöbeln ausgestattet und bieten einen herrlichen Blick durch zwei Palmen hindurch auf das Meer und die Bucht von Santa Maria. Klasse! ****

Well equipped domicile for relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa is well equipped and you have a beautiful view over the coast. The terrace and the garden were a nice playground for your daughters. Several nice beaches - even if party small and crowded around Ferragosto - are not far away. But without a car the possibilities to enjoy the Costa degi Dei are limited. The landlady reacts quickly and uncomplicated.

Immer wieder gerne

  • 5 of 5

Wir (Familie mit Kindern) hatten einen sehr angenehmen Aufenthalt in der Villa Valentina. Das Haus sieht genauso aus, wie auf den Fotos, sauber und zweckmäßig ausgestattet (Waschmaschine, Geschirrspüler, Nespressomaschine, Fön, Bügeleisen, Klimaanlage, Ventilator, TV, W-LAN...)

In diesem Haus hat es uns an nichts gefehlt! Auch mit Kleinkindern sehr geeignet, da das Haus von allen Seiten abgeschlossen ist. Die Außenanlage ist sehr sauber und gepflegt!

Der Blick von Terrasse ist bezaubernd. Wir genossen täglich Sonnenaufgang bzw. Sonnenuntergang.

Die Lage, ca. 300 m vom Strand entfernt, zu Fuß gut erreichbar, aber trotzdem ist ein Auto notwendig (Einkäufe...)

Valentina ist eine toller Gastgeberin, jederzeit ansprechbar, ein schneller und unkomplizierter Kontakt über Handy und E-Mail. Vielen Dank nochmals!
