We came with our two young children and parents, and it was the perfect place for us. The house itself has all the warmth and character of a family home, and is stylishly decorated, with a great kitchen. The children's bedroom has lots of toys, which my toddler loved! The swimming pool is fantastic: very clean, and set against the backdrop of beautiful countryside. It is very quiet and peaceful, but nearby is the picturesque town of Pollica which has an excellent cafe, and it's also a ten-minute drive away from seaside town which has very good restaurants and a bar which sells award-winning ice cream. Our host, Dominic, was exceptionally kind and helpful throughout our stay - and even afterwards, when we discovered our son had left some of his soft-toys behind! This is the sort of place you can't help but want to tell your friends about, because it is so very special.

Clean and roomy with views of the sea. A well-equipped kitchen, enormous bedroom with comfortable bed, an outside sitting area which afforded welcome shade for outside dining. This is the best Italian self-catering property we have ever been in. The beaches at Pioppi and Acciaroli are only a few minutes away by car. Acciaroli has all the food shops anyone could need - including several fishmongers, greengrocers, grocers, bakers and cafes. Nearly all of the holidaymakers were Italian. Inland, Pollica is well worth a visit for the views and the church. All this within a ten mile radius of the house. A car is absolutely essential. With the aid of Alessandra (the owner's lovely daughter who speaks good English) we hired one at Ascea. The owners, Giancarlo and his wife, were very kind and helpful. We cannot thank them enough for ensuring our holiday was just about perfect.
