The nearest beach is less than 1 km away from the villa and benefits from having quality beach side restaurants offering fresh home cooked cuisine with views over the bay they are open all year round. The beach has a raft of activities including scuba diving, snorkelling, pedalo, boat, and sun bed hire. Part of the beach has a very safe naturally shallow children’s bathing area.

Why Nigel chose Vibo Valentia

Villa Bergamotto offers a true 'home from home' experience. It has been totally refurbished to a very high standard with marble floors & bathrooms all being very spacious with attention to detail.

Both apartments are well furnished and include beach chairs, cool bag for picnics & even a beach portable BBQ. The terraces have quality sofas, sun chairs, dining furniture and romantic lighting - the perfect setting for an apperitvo or al fresco dining.

What makes this apartment unique

Location is superb, quiet yet in a few minutes you can be on the beach or drinking/eating in one of the lovely family owned beach pizzerias. Our beaches have free and easy parking. A short drive to the more touristic towns of Tropea and Pizzo.

Ideal also in Autumn or winter for walkers or trekking as we have a very efficient pellet stove and electric blankets if needed.

Bella Vista

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a magnificent holiday in Villa Bergamotto. The two of us rented the first floor apartment, on arrival we were greeted by Francessca who showed us around the apartment and was always available to contact for any additional information needed, she was so obliging.

The apartment was immaculately clean and organised, you need to bring nothing! The ambiance is calm and homely, simply perfect.

Nigel's information he sent us a week before we arrived was invaluable, it is so detailed, it enabled us to enjoy the area's beaches and fabulous restaurants without making any mistakes, we have rented holiday homes many times before and we have never been given so much help and info, simply top notch.

My husband loved the hot power shower and wants to imitate it at home, I enjoyed the sun terrace and the magnificent views they are simply spectacular.

We are already planning to return next year, I can't wait.

Relaxing holiday in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We (my husband, 4 year old daughter and I) just returned from a one week stay in the top floor rental of this property. We loved everything about our apartment and the area. The property is just as described and very comfortable - it is also in the perfect location for exploring the surrounding towns and beaches. Nigel and Mandy the owners were also there that week and between them and the housekeeper Francesca we were very well looked after and the recommendations they made about towns, beaches, lidos, restaurants etc. were excellent. We would love to return one day - thank you!

Our Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent 12 days in a villa Bergamotto, in an apartment on the first floor. Accommodation is really very nice, clean, maintained and well equipped. Whether it's a kitchen, laundry or sports equipment. The surroundins is beautiful and the view from terrace breath taking. Accommodation description and instructions actually correspond to reality. The car is really necessity.

Especially we want to thank Nigel and Amanda for help by solving problems with car rental. They were actually very willing and helpful, so thanks again.

I really like Nigels "instructions" for housing, and tips and tricks how to explore the surroundings :-) We also thank to Francesca, everything was very well organized.

Holiday in Calabria was really nice and interesting. There you will find beautiful beaches - sandy or stone, abandoned or fully equipped. Definitely we recommend seeing surrounding cities and also visit Sicily. Too bad that the holiday can take longer .... maybe next time :-)

Amazing holiday at Bergamotto villa!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful weather was the icing on the cake of a superb break.beautiful and mainly deserted beaches within minutes of the property definitely a great asset !i would recommend trying to book the first floor as the view from the terrace is breathtaking including a sensational sunset!

Just imagine for example Majorca 40 years ago and you've got Calabria.

PS if you are into nightclubbing,head to Ibiza!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely comments. We totally agree that it's unspoilt by tourism - one of the main reasons we chose Calabria. May is a lovely month to visit, as its so peaceful yet lovely weather. You should also try to come back in the autumn (September - November) as the sea is still warm from the summer and lots of lovely sunshine without so many tourists.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday at Villa Bergamotto. The accommodation is first class and every detail and convenience is taken care of. If you are looking for a relaxing break in fabulous accommodation and in an area with excellent food and wine, then this is the place. This really is unspoilt Italy with a friendly smile.

The weather was fantastic for end of May, the beaches clean and not full of tourists! The information for restaurants provided by the owners were spot on, especially La Lampara in Pizzo where the passion from the chef clearly showed in the food that was served, one of the finest meals we had. We highly recommend this villa and location and thank the owners, Nigel and Mandie for their efforts in making this an unforgettable holiday.

The accommodation & area was everything we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay. Accommodation was very clean & spacious, and for people like us who love to buy local food and cook, the kitchen has everything you need. I highly recommend the lido's suggested by the owners, not only were the beaches lovely the seafood was perfectly cooked and left you wanting more (and we did!). Restaurants will always be a personal choice but if you can't find a restaurant you like I will be very surprised.

Enjoy and food and the views with an Aperol Spritz sit back and relax and pretend to be a local!
