Unique 1-room flat with large American kitchen, bar, sofa and 1 double bed + 1 single bed.

It is located in a very refreshing, aerated and quiet area, right in the heart of the old Medieval village of Squillace – small col of noble origins. It is located within walking distance of the Norman castle which dominates the whole gulf of Squillace.

"The accommodation is ver...

  • 5 of 5

"The accommodation is very good value for money, the environment is unique, and the owners, who live in adjacent property charming and hospitable. The hostess is also a very good cook. Local people and traders are in the main welcoming and helpful, and there is virtually no crime in the area. This was one of the best holidays we have had for many years. The site would not be convenient for anybody with physical or sight infirmities as while the interior of the apartment is all on one level there are steep inclines and uneven surfaces as soon as you step outside."

lieu de séjour agréable

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons apprécié notre séjour à Squillace dans ce studio bien équipé. Nous avons apprécié également la gentillesse des parents de la propriétaire qui se sont occupés de nous pendant notre séjour. Ils ont mis à notre disposition une documentation historique abondante et leur connexion wifi pour relever nos courriels. Le studio est situé dans une petite ruelle très calme du vieux Squillace. L'accès est un peu difficile mais l'endroit est très calme. Notre seul reproche concerne le manque de lumière naturelle dans la pièce principale et le manque de vue par la porte vitrée. C'est la raison pour laquelle, après beaucoup d'hésitation je ne mets que quatre étoiles au lieu de cinq. A noter que ce que nous avons perçu comme un défaut à l'automne peut être une grande qualité l'été lorsqu'il fait très chaud. Possibilité de faire les courses dans les deux petites épiceries du village. L'accueil est charmant.

"wij hebben een prima vak...

  • 5 of 5

"wij hebben een prima vakantie gehad in deze woning, het was netjes en schoon.Alles kwam overeen met wat er in de beschrijving van het huisje stond. De woning ligt in een klein sfeervol straatje,dicht bij de prachtige burcht.

Op loopafstand is een supermarkt en een pinautomaat. In een pizzeria beneden aan de weg hebben wij heerlijk gegeten. Met de auto is het makkelijk bereikbaar, je moet op een parkeerplaats je auto zetten en dan is het nog geen 50 mtr naar het huisje.De eigenaren zijn fantastisch!! Zij hebben ons heel goed geholpen toen er problemen waren met het huren van een auto, dankzij hen is dat uiteindelijk toch gelukt.Door hen en andere contacten in het dorp gaan wij zeker terugkomen in het prachtige calabria.

"Correttezza, cordialità e pulizia voto 10.

Il luogo è suggestivo e posizionato come crocevia di moltissimi luoghi incantevoli da visitare.

Tra mare, montagna e castelli ce n''è davvero per tutti i gusti e le esigenze.

Adatto sia per chi vuole rilassarsi, sia per chi vuole visitare posti, sia per chi vuole divertirsi.

"L''appartamento e'' carino e molto pulito in una zona caratteristica e tranquilla. Molto gentili i proprietari. Ideale per una vacanza tranquilla. Il mare dista solo 5 km. Nel complesso consiglierei il posto. e'' vicino al mare ma e'' divesro dai soliti appartamenti...e'' molto tipico."

By car : take the A3 motorway (which goes from SA to RC), get out of the motorway at the junction which leads to Soverato. Carry on S.S. 116. Once you’ve crossed the village called Roccelletta di Borgia, you’ll find a crossroad. At this crossroad, turn right and follow the direction of Squillace town center. You’re on the main street which leads to the Castle. Go straight on for a while. 100 meters after San Giorgio Church, take the street which goes up, then take the second street on your left which is a dead-end street. Then park your car. You’ve just arrived !

By plane : Lamezia Terme Airport (45km), Crotone Airport (150 km)

By train : Take the Milan-Rome train. Get off at Catanzaro Lido (13 km).

Thanks to the strategic location of the village, visitors can easily reach the most interesting places of the region. The village is at about 5 km form the Ionic Coast (Gulf of Squillace, Copanello di Staletti, Pietragrande, Caminia) and at less than 20 km from the mountains (Aspromonte, Serre and Sila Piccola). The archeological sites of Squillace (Scolacium and the Cassiodora spa) as well as the ones of Stilo, Gerace, Diamante and Reggio Calabria (south-eastward) are also worth a visit.

The manufacturing of ceramics (Registered Designation of Origin) is a well-known characteristic of the area along with its shops and workshops dedicated to terra cotta and clay. This ancient tradition dates back from the time when Greece was experiencing its flourishing period (Magna Grecia).

In addition to a large number of cultural events which take place throughout the year, the coast area is also famous for its night life with bars, discos and other fashionable places.
