What makes this Apartment unique
Il beneficio unico che sentiamo nella nostra proprietà è la possibilità di essere in grado di sedersi su ciascuna delle 3 balconi e osservare diversi punti di vista. Si può trascurare la piscina dalle due camere da letto matrimoniali, godere di una vista campagna / collina dal balcone lato e vista sul mare dalla principale The unique benefit we feel to our property is the option of being able to sit on each of the 3 balconies and observe different views. You can overlook the swimming pool from the two master bedrooms, enjoy country/hillside views from the side balcony and sea views from the main large balcony.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Excellently run modern complex, very secure, rural coastal village setting.
Gated residential holiday village with good sized pool, comfortable sun loungers with facial shades and parasols. The apartment has a beautiful vista with sunny balconies overlooking green fields and the entire coastline. AC system in living area and bedroom fans. Two bedrooms with three good sized double beds and plenty of wardrobe space. Kitchen is petite, with gas stove and oven, and fridge freezer. There was no vacuum cleaner or mop which was unusual as the overall floor space is bigger than a hands and knees job will allow. However, there is a large table and chairs both in the eating area and on the main balcony. It really is very spacious. Theres a fantastic bakery, butcher and supermarket ten minutes walk from the complex. There is however no pool bar or playground area for children. This wasn't a problem for us. The beach, of which there are public and private areas, was about a fifteen minute easy stroll. Most evenings in August there is dancing and fireworks on the beach or at the weddings in the Castillo nearby. The coastal villages lack the charm of other regions, as this is truly an agricultural area and not romanticised or hyped as a tourist trap! You are experiencing the South of Italy in all its rugged swarthiness. The sea is blessedly clean and clear, and the gentle breeze reaches the balcony which is very refreshing in the heat of the afternoon. We had a couple of initial hiccoughs, such as the AC and oven can't be used simultaneously and you need to know where the 2nd breaker box is ... outside. But the groundsman was very helpful. It was difficult to reach the owners local manager as he was overseas and his on site handler was not a helpful man, probably because this wasnt his usual job.
Bear in mind that no one speaks English.... or French or German as I discovered, but they do their best in their brusque way, which I think is down to a perfectly normal discomfort with being unable to communicate without all parties resorting to hand gestures and toddler speak!
Incidentally there is a decent selection of larger supermarkets a few miles either side of the village, but you won't find many souvenir shops. I didn't see any at all actually.
The local restaurants were unappealing, but you don't come here for culinary pleasures...... Sun, sea, agricultural environment and feeling like cities and life are far away. All of those boxes were ticked and the apartment was comfortable, spacious and in a well cared for complex! Happy!
August 2014 in Mandatoriccio
The apartment is very nice and convenient. Only problem we had, we were not informed that the door cannot be opened from outside even if not closed with key. so people must be aware they can be closed outside !
Other negative point : swimming pool is not opened from 2 to 4 pm. I don't know why ? but the gate remains opened, so we could enjoy the pool quietly.
To conclude, it was nice holidays in Marina di Mandatoriccio.
appartamento comodo e funzionale in un bellissimo villaggio. bella la piscina tenuta molto bene. posto selvaggio ma incantevole. Da ritornarci.
appartamento comodo e luminoso. Bel contesto piscina molto pulita.
Thank you very much for your review. Claire
L'environnement de cette ...
L'environnement de cette location est très agréable, calme et simple. La mer est proche, les plages très grandes et propres. Peu de monde à la piscine. La résidence est bien entretenue et l'accueil sympathique mais l'équipement du logement est restreint : nous étions 4 et seulement 2 petites serviettes de toilette étaient fournies, nous avons dû acheter une grande casserole pour pouvoir faire cuire des pâtes !
Thank you very much for your feedback, always appreciated. I will certainly invest in purchasing more equipment for our clients. Claire (owner)

The town of Mandatoriccio was settled in the latter half of the 17th Century after earthquakes in the region forced people to seek out new land for development after their own was destroyed. This was a village formed in the heart of feudal Italy and holiday accommodation in Mandatoriccio gives you access to all of the history of the area, placing everything right on your doorstep. Villas in Mandatoriccio offer spacious accommodation for families looking to enjoy an authentic Italian holiday experience. Despite lots of conflict between feuding Barons and Lords the settlement was greatly enlarged in the 18th century.
Mandatoriccio is part of the Cosenza region of Italy, a land rich in arts and culture with a long and interesting history. There are many cathedrals and churches worthy of exploration here. Because of the many earthquakes of varying magnitudes that have been experienced here over the centuries, the buildings have been rebuilt and remodelled with the materials available and in the style of the times.
