We are a senior citizen couple from USA. We have travelled Italy in the summer for the past 3 years. Often we use vrbo.com and most of the time we are satisfied with our rental.
Lou's rental this year was outstanding. Everything listed in his vrbo# was there just as described. The area and his accommodations were beyond our expectations.
Complex safe and friendly. Trip to the beach wonderful.
Sammantha the property manager was a jewel in helping us. No matter the question, our how many questions from us. We would definitely return there in our next trip to Italy.

Wonderful relaxing stay...food to die for and proper italian culture. Lovely place-will be visiting again soon
Had a wonderful stay in amazing apartment beautifully maintained complex . The village and surrounding areas were lovely to explore and the traditional village life made you realise how laid back life can be - would definitely go back . Found some lovely places to eat and the language barrier was never a problem.
The apartment of Mr. Lucio is really a very nice location in a wonderful residence near Marina di Gioiosa Jonica.
The support of Mrs. Samantha, who receives the guests is perfect.
The property was very clean and very well maintained.

Last year I travelled and visited the Gioiosa Ionica and surrounding areas with my parents. My parents are both from Calabria and born in the nearby community of Mammola. Since I have family from France and Canada who vacation in the area annually, I thought that it would be a good opportunity to return this year with my wife and two daughters (22 and 19) so that they can visit my parent’s birthplace and experience the Southern Italian culture with family.
I am happy to say that my wife and daughters absolutely loved the two weeks in Calabria and look forward to returning to Gioiosa Ionica in the future. Our stay at the apartment exceeded our expectations.
The night we arrived we were greeted by Samantha who was our contact. Samantha was very helpful and provided us with additional information of restaurants and local attractions..
The apartment is located in a non tourist area of Gioiosa Ionica in a gated complex.
We met Giuseppe the property care taker who keeps the property and pool in tip-top shape. The apartment is new, spacious and clean. It accommodates four adults comfortably.
My wife and two daughters ran or walked every day around the complex (1 lap is 0.28km) followed by a swim in the pool.
For cyclists, a road bike can be rented at a bicycle shop located in Siderno. My daughter and I rented a bike and cycled to the nearby villages in the mountains and Giffone which is at an elevation of 1000 m and approximately 28 km from the apartment. It was a very interesting experience.
The food is great. We visited restaurants, located in Gioiosa, Mammola, Rochella and the Limina. The cuisines are typical Calabrese and provide an excellent selection of dishes. If you like spicy pasta sauce such as Arrabiata, I recommend you try a Calabrian pasta dish with the Il Cortise sauce. It is an excellent primi dish. We experienced great food in Calabria at the restaurants we visited. We also brought take home food from a nearby restaurant.
My family experienced the typical Calabrian culture by staying at the Villaggio Bergamotto and highly recommends it.
We all loved our stay at the apartment and wish to thank Lou and Samantha for providing us with excellent accommodations.
