Archeological interest'the Magna Grecia': If interested I can arrange special tour of museum/actual archeological digs with professors, directors of museums.

Special visits to surrounding islands archelogical sightseeing can be arranged upon requests.

Gerace has over 2000 years of history.It was the site of many occupation tru the centuries, and all thoose civilizations left an imprint,including the Norman invasion that left behind the Norman castle.

Locri has a Greek anphitheather and to date performances under the stars are been given in its 2000 year od anphyteather.

The museum of Locri is well known and the center of interest of luminary personality.

Nearby Roccella hosts international jazz festivals.

The Ionian sea...the surroundings: the ionian sea is clean ,deepest blue and center of attraction for sea lovers of all ages...

Many 'Lidos' serve the clients with umbrellas ,loungers. refresments and lunch/ dinner on the water.

Some of the small restaurants have no set menus'They serve the catch of the day'.

The athmosphere is quiet and the beaches are not loud ,one can spend the day sailing,paddling ,motor boating

reading a book on the lounger ,eating on the rotonda 'Makes one feel like Onassis' as someone told me.

The Eolian islands, Sicily, are some of the many destinations within easy reach even one day escursions,

Palermo is really a jewel and is a must,along with Taormina,

Two days will take you to Erice tip of Sicily that overlooks Africa.

Scilla the site of Ulisse's boat wreck is near Reggio Calabria and is also rich of hystory and breathtaking beauty.

The food of the south: the local food is as good as it gets.

From the local gelato at Rinaldi's at the piazza del tocco in Gerace,to the fancy restaurant, the small trattoria, the pizza,the food is the delicacy and irresistible.

Do not eat too much of the appetizers, everything tastes so good you want to leave room for dessert;

Do not forget to sit out at nigth and have a granita,then sit by the 'Bombarde' the balcony to the world of Gerace

Perhaps it is the sun or the water or the ripeness of the fruit,butthe granita it is incomparable.

Strolling through the cobblestone of Gerace, it's a pleasure to grace through the barriers shops the most exquisite ceramics, linen, lace. At Christmas time the churches have manger scene; they compete with each other and they are very artistic and unique. Famous composers performed concerts in the churches at Christmas creating an atmosphere that brings you back centuries after the concerts the most delicious hot chocolate takes away the chill.

Villarosa: gli interni

Sulla porta d’ingresso accoglie l’ospite l’arcaico sorriso di Persefone che, insieme con l’iscrizione incisa sul caminetto attiguo , ci ricorda che siamo immersi nell’ambiente della Magna Grecia, terra antica di grande ospitalità e cultura.

Si entra , quindi, sotto i buoni auspici della Dea che un tempo si credeva regolasse le stagioni, nell’ampio living room che presenta una grande e funzionale cucina, un lungo tavolo di cristallo per i pranzi e le cene in compagnia, una grande vetrina porta stoviglie, l’angolo per la lettura , due divani ( uno matrimoniale ed uno singolo) ed un lettino.

Accanto, in stile antica Roma , c’è un grande bagno con doccia e sanitari e, a fronte, un ambiente col lavatoio ed un lungo ripostiglio.

Salendo su per le scale fatte in pietra serena troviamo un largo spazio con tre camere da letto: una, con pareti a vetro satinato ed istoriato, contiene una grande scrivania insieme ad un letto in ottone ad una piazza e mezza. Accanto si trova la stanza padronale con letto matrimoniale in ferro battuto e romantico terrazzo che si affaccia sulla vallata di Antonimina e le prime propaggini dell’Aspomonte. C’è, infine, la camera degli ospiti con letto matrimoniale , sempre in ferro battuto, ed un lettino a sponde regolabili per i bambini.

Nel luminoso disimpegno, ancora un letto ( ad una piazza) e , a servizio di tutte la zona notte, un bagno con sanitari in stile vecchia Inghilterra , ampia doccia e, nascosti da due artistiche grate, i vani per la lavatrice e quanto possa occorrere per il bucato.

Dalla zona notte si sale poi sul magnifico terrazzo superiore dove, soprattutto nelle notti più luminose, sembra di potere toccare con mano l’ampia volta del firmamento che si stende solenne su tutto l’ambiente circostante comprendendo la verde collina , l’azzurro mare e la montagna viola.

Anche davanti al living room in basso c’è un ampio terrazzo munito di dondolo, sedie e tavolino in legno e ferro battuto per i pomeriggi e le mattinate dedicate alla tintarella o le serate in famiglia o con gli amici.

Non a torto un ospite canadese ha lasciato scritto nel libro dedicato ai pensieri dei “Guests” della villa che è inutile cercare altrove il Paradiso: esso si trova a portata di mano nella tranquilla, bella e confortevole dimora chiamata “Villarosa”.

About rosanna ranieri

Years ago I went back to Italy the land I was born in and grew up.I have lived my adult life in the USA ,my home of nearly forty years . The visit tho the land i was born in, where I went to school created a feeling of yearning , an ache,that would linger and augment thru the years.I fell in love with the little house on the hill ,recognized its potential so I,convinced my cousin to sell it to me and by miracle her mother agreed to have me purchase it;she had been reluctant to sell to others so many times before...My dream came thru and with enthusiasm I proceeded to transform the Little house into Villarosa the jewel it is now.

The results exceeded any expectation:the peace of a countryside and the nearness of the attractions and activities is enough to delight the needs for tranquillity and action at the same time

Every time I visit Villarosa I feel restored ,at peace with myself, close to my roots and to the people I love and love me back.

I have some regrets in my life ,Villarosa is the culmination of my dream to reconnect,to belong.

Several guests have visited Villarosa in their quest of finding their roots,the launching pad their families left for other shores.Helping them find their roots gives me much joy.

Others come to enjoy the 'National Park of the Aspromonte',trekking,escursions tours,offer the visitors the opportunity to reconnect with nature.Cyclers come to the area from all over Europe, some have contacted us from Australia,others come for the nearby beaches, the Ionic sea all enjoy the rich medieval heritage of Gerace,and the archeological treasures of Locri.

Left on Sep 5, 2017 for a stay in Aug 2017

Villarosa ha accolto il nostro gruppo di amici con tutti i necessari comfort, accessori ed una pulizia impeccabile. Immersa nel verde con tanti alberi da frutto, in una bellissima vallata con vista sul mare (raggiungibile in soli 10 min. di auto), è la base perfetta per poter visitare tutta la costa ionica della Calabria. In giardino e nei diversi terrazzi si può godere di una pausa rilassante, ma anche organizzare delle cene in compagnia, con musica e senza disturbare i vicini.

Comfortable Villa with gorgeous views near Gerace

  • 4 of 5

This villa is one of the best places I’ve stayed in all of Europe. The views are STUNNING!!! There are terraces and balconies everywhere!!! The kitchen is illy equipped and the AC units in every room work like a charm. I travel extensively for both work and pleasure, and it is tough to find a great place to stay that is comfortable, clean, with a great location. It was comfortable for all 8 of us (6 adults and 2 kids), with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Santina, the property manager was more than helpful at any time and was very flexible with issues we had with delayed flights coming in and my sick father in law on check out.

I’ve rented numerous apartments around Europe, and Like any property for rent, there are minor issues to deal with (ex: not turning on too many AC units, washer, or oven at one time or the electricity will shut off and need to be reset..... drains in shower don’t drain fast so water builds up while showering.... it’s quite a large and popular home with a high turnover rate, so many guests means more cleaning and more attention to detail could have been paid to this in the larger areas like hallways, living room and kitchen.... its a little off the beaten path and large cars or vans won’t fit down the small road to the house.) But overall the issues were incredible minor and really just a part of the experience when traveling outside of large cities. The small issues were just that, small... Overall i would HIGHLY reccomend this villa to friends and family, and anyone i know looking to stay in Calabria. We had a wonderful time in Gerace every evening, and loved spending our days on the beaches of Locri or taking day trips to other towns like Tropea. 8 is definitely maximum capacity for this house, unless you want to use the crib and pull out Couch. The drive to Gerace is about 10 min, and drive to Locri is about 20.... depending on how fast you want to take the curves going down the hill!

My favorite moments in this wonderful Villa were spent taking in the gorgeous sunrises on the roof top balcony, doing yoga in the shade near the fig Trees, and laughing and cooking and dancing with our whole family in the open and spacious downstairs living room/ kitchen. We made memories in the beautiful Villarosa that will last us a lifetime!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review! You and your family are always welcomed back at VILLAROSA. While we cannot help the narrow roads of medioeval town ,we welcome your suggestions and strive for absolute perfection . The stunning surroundings and magnificent views of Villarosa have always attracted the many guests and provided the set up for a Magic relationship with nature and soul searching. The frequent regret from the previous guests is that they did not plan to stay longer,but will the next time ... We have enjoyed repeated visits from several guests ,that have left their heart to the many attractions that we have to offer . Santina is the prototype of the legendary hospitality of the south of Italy:she truly enjoys people and her enthusiasm is contagious. The rest comes easy : the charm of discovery what is called the “Florence of the south “Gerace , with her millennial history,architecture,archeology,culinary ,climate , attractions do the rest easily. In fact nested between the Aspromonte National Park on the west and the Jonic sea on the east the area offers all that a discerning visitor may wish to find. So thank you Kimberly for your kind review and come back to Calabria.

Stunning Villa- Best Place to stay in Calabria

  • 5 of 5

Villa Rosa is absolutely STUNNING. It was even better than what we could have imagined ! It was perfect for our family stay in Calabria to see our family roots! Rosanna was so nice and incredible to communicate with from start to finish. She answered any questions we had and gave amazing recommendations for the stay.

The villa itself is breathtaking. Each terrace gives you a difference view of beautiful Calabria, from the sea, to the mountains, to the olive groves and beyond, Villa Rosa is the perfect getaway to feel like you are living an Italian Dream.

The rooms and beautiful and spacious, the kitchen is great for making family meals to eat on the terrace. It is the perfect location close to Gerace center and great for making trips to Locri, Tropea, Scilla, Stilo ect.

It is very specious and beautifully set up. We didn't want to leave! Our family had such a special trip we will remember forever thanks to Villa Rosa! We Will definitely be back and always stay at Villa Rosa!

One week in Gerace

  • 4 of 5

House is pleasant. Everything you may need except warmth! The house was cold, and we couldn’t find any additional blankets, so we slept with layers of clothes❗️ The proximity to Gerace is convenient, though the house itself is a little difficult to find.

Owner's Response: So sorry you found the house to be cold. Of course the heat should have been turned on,as the house is equipped with CENTRAL HEATING SYSTEM,the heating panels are in every single room, and the thermostat is very visible near the entrance to the bedrooms,above the stairs. The propane tank by the garage is full to the maximum,as I just had it filled. Regretfully you did not contact me nor Santina about,we would have helped you and certainly your stay would have been more pleasant! Many blankets are also available on the premises and goose down comforters were in the green armoir in the bedroom . Hopefully the rest of your stay was comfortable . Rosanna

Feeling like home, away from home

  • 5 of 5

We spent seven days in this beautiful tree-bedroom house and we felt great, with a marvelous living room and a fully equipped kitchen! But above all this, we will never forget the amazing view from the roof top, perfect for our morning coffee time. The garden was very beautiful and offered us a delicious variety of fruits. The nearest restaurant called "la Terassa" delighted us with their local italian cousine. The atmosphere of the town, Gerace, was joyful and relaxing at the same time. Also, the beach which was ten minutes from the house with the car, spred alongside the coast on several kilometers. Words cannot describe what a lovely time we had !We felt like on the top of the world! We can only recommend to see it for yourself ! Thank you Rosanna and Santiana for all the help and for making our holiday so much more beautiful !

Owner's Response: How welcome are your kind remarks. We are indeed striving to offer a home away from home to the discerning guests that grace us with their presence! You must come back to Gerace,you only touched the tip of the iceberg:Calabria has millenary history of civilization. The museums are attestation that the various heritage has melted into a very colorful cornucopia of traditions ,that render Gerace unique ,the Florence of the South,as is named. The gastronomy ,the ceramics,the damasks,the Silk,the wine usually temps the tourists into its downtown . The Aspromonte National park,the beaches of Locri,the lungomare of Reggio,the archaeological digs of Locri We never are proud to offer the Antonimina thermal baths, all within few kilometers of the villa. Weather you are dreaming of a quiet relaxing sunset dinner on the terrace at home or are interested in the many activities,the choice is yours. Zungri is the destination of the citadel carved in the rock ,similar to the Kappadocia ones. You see why you must return to Calabria,to Gerace,to VILLAROSA. BESIDES REPEATED GUEST ENJOY 10% discount. Come back Thank you for your stewardship Fondly Rosanna

The food,culture ,history of Calabria is such ,that you only touched the tip of the iceberg . Do come back ,you have friends that have you in their hearts at VILLAROSA. ;
