I was born and raised in Italy. I work as a professional in Hong Kong
Marco Arosti, High Noble Investments Limited purchased this villa in 2012
I wanted to build an oasis of calm and comfort from which to enjoy the beauty of Calabrian coastal landscape, one of the most amazing scenaries in Southern Italy
Uniquely positioned on a cliff overlooking the sea, contemporary design, fitted with modern technologies, infinity pool and large garden.
We enjoyed our stay at the villa. We went sightseeing most of the times or at the beach, and it was a pleasure to go back to the villa and enjoy a relaxing dinner on the pool side.
We stayed at Villa Mediterraneo for a week. It was a fantastic experience.
The property is located in a great position, with full 180 degrees sea view, and amazing sun set view. The children had the entire garden to play with, we had lots of football games occasionally interrupted with a swim in the pool
The pool is regularly cleaned and well maintained, none of us (unlike other experiences) had issues with allergies or eye infections, despite we swimmed for the entire day.
The house interiors are very elegant, and we found all we needed for cooking. The billard in the main room is a great pastime, and so the foosball. The house has 3 TV screens, more than enough for a big group of people.
The villa manager was very helpful with us, and check jn and check out formalities where very easy to deal with.
We strongly recommend this property
The property was plenty big enough for our party of 10. It was well maintained and clean when we arrived with bed linen and hand towels provided, however, larger towels would have been provided at an extra charge, plus a fee for laundering them which was not clear in the description. There were areas that needed some attention such as cracked & chipped crockery, only 4 mugs in the property that could potentially sleep 18 people! Some areas of the decking were loose/lifting and rotting but overall the gardens and pool area were well kept and maintained. While the property is within a walkable distance to the beach and nearest restaurant, a car is needed to get to these areas as they are reached by walking along a road which has no footpath or lighting and snakes down to the beach from the cliff where the villa is situated.There is a shop about 200 metres from the property which stocks a good variety of things, however, to reach a supermarket or to access towns or places to visit a car is a must!The villa manager, Paolo, was helpful in arranging airport transfers for some of the group and answered queries promptly.
The villa was plenty big enough for our group of 10 people,and it is well maintained.The villa manager,Paolo,arranged airport transfers for us upon request.The villa has lovely gardens and views,however,if planning to travel you will definitely need a car.The beach and nearest restaurant,while a within a reasonable walking distance, are reached by walking down a road with no path and very little lighting.There is a shop very close by which has a good variety of supplies,but to reach a larger store/supermarket a car is required.The write up of the villa states that towels are supplied,and our group were left with clean hand towels,however,we were not issued any bath towels.When I contacted the villa manager about this I was informed that there would be an extra charge for the supply of these,plus a fee for laundering them at the end of the week which is not how the write up came across.The villa is mostly well equipped if making your own meals,but we found basics lacking,such as a low amount of mugs (4 in total),and a lot of cracked and chipped crockery.There were also other issues such as the table tennis was broken,and areas of the decking were rotting and lifting.All in all a good week was had by all in the group but we felt there is room for improvement considering how much was paid for our stay.
The home was stunning and the sunsets were some of the best we have seen. Paulo the site manager was always available and very helpful. He made our stay very enjoyable. The house is beautiful and has every amenity you need. The views from the pool are stunning and the weather was great.. We had many nights where we looked at the stars having a glass of wine on our balcony.We used the outdoor kitchen and pizza oven daily.and my son even played soccer on the local academy team while we were there.. My kids didn't get bored as the pool table,pingpong, fuseball and pool kept them busy.. The sea is only 5 minutes away and we became friends with the local baker who invited us to his farm for dinner one night. An Italian feast ... Restaurants and supermarket are only 5 minutes away and also there is a port where we rented a fishing boat for the day... Cant wait to go back next year.. Marco the owner was very professional and was very responsive to our emails and Paulo made sure we had the vacation of a lifetime.. Thankyou because you did.
The house was absolutely magnificent. The rooms were modern, extremely spacious and had everything you could ask for.
The facilities, views, furnishings and gardens were the best I've seen. I will certainly be staying again.
beautiful house, yard and view. great house for multiple families - kids happily swam, played pool, ping pong and foosball while adults enjoyed lounging, sunsets and the brick-oven
