The location is idyllic with very impressive views and a fantastically well equipped garden. We very much enjoyed breakfast outside, staring at the stunning views. We also found a very lovely beach south of Praia a Mare and liked discovering the region. Massimilio is the kindest and most delicate host one could wish for, and nothing is too much trouble to make his guests have a memorable experience, including introducing them to the local products. His house is wonderfully comfortable and one feels totally at home.

The villa has three good sized double bedrooms, two with air con and en-suites and a large family bathroom. The lounge is comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need plus more. The outside space is where this villa really excels. There is a large terrace on the first floor surrounding three sides of the building, you can enjoy the mountain views, gaze down to the sea or enjoy fantastic night skies, thanks to almost none existent light pollution. The ground floor (actually up half a flight of steps) has a deep covered terrace with a very comfortable outdoor settee and chair set and a dining table and six chairs. In front of the villa is a large patio area with a further table and six chairs and built in gas BBQ where we had several simple but tasty BBQ meals. You then step down to the large pool with roman steps and further seats and sun loungers. The one acre plot is mainly left to nature and has many colourful lizards and trees giving shade and parking. Although not fans of Scalea which we thought a bit busy (we were there during the main Italian summer bank holiday and vacation fortnight) we found numerous pizzeria type restaurants in easy reach of the villa all of which were incredibly well priced. Bella vista in Santa Dominica became a favourite, booking is recommended and get there early so you can get a terrace edge table to enjoy the views across the valley. There is a local supermarket for your basics – their ham and mozzarella was very tasty and larger supermarkets in Scalea for bigger shops, we preferred the Connad. We would recommend a stroll around Orso Marso and a coffee in the Maratea marina. Mike is very pleasant and friendly, he was very helpful and quick to answer any questions, he recommended local restaurants and showed us the local supermarkets on arrival.
