If you need a relaxing holiday in nature, you find a jewel here. It is a peaceful and quite place. If you are looking for this, this is your place. We are on the hills between Tropea (4 km) and Capo Vaticano. What is extraordinary in the suite for 2 people in Casa Meraviglia is the beauty of nature, the wide horizon, the fantastic view on the ocean with sunset in front of the house, (you see Sicily, two volcanos, Etna and Stromboli, Eolian Islands), the silence and the peaceful atmosphere. The house is new built (2010) in the characteristic shape of the old farmhouses of Calabria, but with all the comforts you need. Internet and heating.
The big bedroom (20 sq.meters) has a direct door into the gorgeous garden and 1 comfortable private bathroom with shower. Kitchen. The suite is a part of the villa where the owner lives. There are four big white dogs very friendly.

I had the most fantastic time staying at this property. The room is located on an amazing, rustic, Italian olive orchard location that overlooks the blue seas of Calabria. The view from the house was absolutely stunning and there was plenty of area outside to relax and enjoy nature. The property is incredibly designed and very new (built in last ten years). Elena was a most gracious guest. Everything was clean, organized, and available. Elena allowed us full access to her kitchen and common room, although we spent most of our time in our room and wonderful, sleek bathroom. This was an amazing, high-end, romantic trip for my girlfriend and I. I could not more enthusiastically endorse this location. I have stayed in Italy and in Calabria multiple times, and this is by far the best experience I have had.
Elena's "suite" in her home is an amazing place to spend a vacation! I have been coming every summer since I discovered this treasure. It is absolutely beautiful, with a kitchen, bathroom, outdoor area, and large bedroom. The place is cleaned for each visitor, and there are plenty of cooking supplies, sheets, towels, etc.
Elena also has no problems with renters using her terrace, which is undoubtedly the best view of the sunset available. The atmosphere is quiet and peaceful, and it is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy some wine and a good book.
The beaches are eventful and only a five minute drive away - my favorite is Riaci, which has stone formations that you can swim through, but Formicoli's islands are a close second! There are also many good restaurants in Tropea, which is a 10-15 min drive, and even closer in Brattiro (the Ritrovo is only 1-2 min away).
We stayed in the suite for 4 whole weeks in May and quickly became immersed into the rural tranquility and peace this property offers. In planning our month's stay there, the owner was helpful and communicative regarding all our inquiries and preparations.
We drove from North Wales, to this peaceful haven to be greeted by the friendly dogs and much warmer Calabrian spring weather. The town of Tropea was close by, as was the village of Brattira, just up the hill. Plenty of options for eating out as well as stores to supply our catering needs. The size of the property allowed us to fully relax and savor the surrounding countryside, whilst Santa Domenica beach, which we quite often had to our solitary selves was just 10 mins drive down the hill.
The owner was away for some periods, but we were fully informed of her plans and were left with plenty of information and directions as such we needed. Whilst she was away, the dogs presence gave a sense of belonging and security and it was wonderful to be greeted by 4 gamboling dogs every time we returned from our journeys. The property allows plenty of scope for exploring the region, and also with the ferry being about 1.5 hrs away, it allowed us a short 5 day excursion to Sicily.
To sum up, the property is neat, tidy and clean, and with the small kitchen and 2 bathrooms, large grounds, we were able to completely relax and enjoy all that the area offers for visitors.
Finally Elena, thank you for the warm welcome you gave to us, together with interesting facts and stories about your property and the surrounding areas.

It was a wondertime spent at the beginnin of March at Elena's farm.
The building, the sight is beautiful, peaceful, a great place to relax or think over your problems. Beautiful yellow flowers all around in the grass or at the mimosa-trees...
The season was great too: we could have nice sunbath, not too cold, not too warm.
The dogs were indeed friendly and avoiding contact with guests.
Tropea is close by car, the seashore is just fabulous.
Nice private appartment, part of the owner's house, with lots of space outside to relax and enjoy the beautiful view. The property is 8 hectares, with olivetrees, flowers all around and shadow under the oaktree in front. The appartment has everything you need, with a spacious bedroom and a little kitchen. Elenais a warm and easygoing person, she made us feel very welcome. Her three friendly dogs walk around the place and accept everybody who is accepted by Elena. Elena gave us good advice about the beaches ( very nice in the neighbourhood) and what to see and where to go and, very important, she knows the best restaurants. Tropea is tiuristic, but very nice and parking the car is no problem.
Elena, thank you for everything. We will remember the nice conversations we had, we had a really good time!
Im Februar 2016 verbrachten wir unsere Winterferien in Kalabrien bei Elena Franzini.
Die Region ist im Februar ein tolles Urlaubsziel, um dem schlechten Wetter in Deutschland zu dieser Jahreszeit zu entfliehen und sich in einer absolut ruhig gelegen Ferienwohnung mitten in der Natur zu erholen. Strände, Wochenmärkte, Wanderungen, historische Orte und vieles mehr gibt es hier zu entdecken.
Die Ferienwohnung ist von Deutschland aus sehr gut und preiswert mit der Ryanair über den Flughafen Lamezia und einem Mietwagen erreichbar. Die Wohnung liegt auf einem großen Grundstück, ist sehr geräumig, ebenerdig, liebevoll eingerichtet, hat einen ganz tollen Blick auf die Küste der Götter und verfügt über eine Zentralheizung.
Elena, unsere Vermieterin, stand immer mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Sie spricht fließend deutsch und ist eine äußerst nette und hilfsbereite Person. Auf ihrem Anwesen leben drei total liebe Hunde, die uns nie angebellt, nie angesprungen oder abgeleckt haben, dafür aber haben sie uns stets behütet und das ganze Areal bewacht.
Wir haben uns hier sehr wohlgefühlt und gut erholt. Wir können diese Ferienwohnung nur weiterempfehlen und vergeben deshalb auch gerne fünf Sterne.
