About Tina

Hi - Thanks for looking at our advert and considering for your next holiday! We are a British family but have holiday homes in Italy and Dubai, where we used to live. As a family we know how important quality time together on holiday is which is why we have chosen this property! Its a great place to unwind, relax and enjoy the good things in life - without breaking the bank! Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

Tina purchased this villa in 2006

Why Tina chose Bonifati

We bought the villa brand new from a local builder, who took great pride in the finishing touches like the hand painted floor tiles and the large terrace with stunning sea views. Did you know Calabria was voted No:37 of The New York Times 52 Places to visit in 2017

What makes this villa unique

Lets be honest, who doesn't love Italy? The food, the wine, the coastline, the weather ..... Here you will not be disappointed. This area is Italy at its very best.

Located in the South, this is a very popular area for many Italians to take their own holidays. The Villa is very well situated being a short drive from miles and miles of picturesque coastline and so many places to eat serving local speciality dishes like Sword Fish, Pizza's and Pasta, all washed down with the local Vino! Delicious!

Traumurlaub in Kalabrien!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren als Familie mit 6 Erwachsenen und 1 Kind zwei Wochen in der Villa und haben uns mehr als wohl gefühlt! Die Erwartungen wurden übertroffen und es hat uns sehr, sehr gut gefallen. Die Villa hat eine ideale Lage, nicht weit vom Meer entfernt aber inmitten von zauberhaften Obst- und Gemüsebergen! Die Ausstattung war perfekt und das Haus ist in einem sehr sauberen und gepflegten Zustand. Zum Pool sind es nur wenige Meter zu Fuß. Die ganze Absprache mit der Besitzerin hat im Voraus perfekt funktioniert und es gibt wirklich überhaupt nichts, über das wir uns beschweren können. Wir würden die Villa auf alle Fälle wieder buchen! Ohne Auto geht allerdings nichts, zu Fuß zum Meer zu laufen ist zu weit und auch zum Supermarkt / Bäcker geht es nur mit dem Auto. Das war aber kein Problem. Vielen Dank Tina für einen perfekten Urlaubsort!

Beautiful spacious villa with all mod cons

  • 4 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay with many local restaurants serving local dishes, totally unspoilt by tourism. many quaint towns and beaches within easy driving distance. there is a beautiful communal pool just 50 metres from the villa if you don't fancy the beach,

A very traditional unspoilt area, would definitely go there again.

Want to go back!

  • 5 of 5

The villa had plenty of room inside and out. The pool area was really nice, very clean and a good size.

The train station is less than 10 minutes away and we visited lots of little towns along the coast. Prebook tickets for train travel, it's so much cheaper. We found the restaurants good value and the supermarkets a lot cheaper than home. We would love to go back to explore.
