                                                                                                We stayed at this accommodation for five weeks from December 2016 to January 2017. The accommodation was fabulous. It is not often that the accommodation is more impressive than the photographs. The apartment has five bedrooms, two are en-suite. The view of Sicily and Mount Etna from the lounge and balcony is breathtaking. The hosts, Graziella, Nino and family are very welcoming, very kind and extremely helpful. They truly are a wonderful family. They also run a local travel agency so they are very qualified for renting out a holiday let. Reggio Calabria is a delight. Please don't expect Florence or Rome when you visit Reggio. In this area the town is more modern. It is run down in places due to the current economy but that is more than made up for by the weather, the trips available to you and the people. This is a destination for experienced travellers. Access to Sicily is excellent but if you are staying here you would be better served focusing on the local towns such as Scilla, Bova, Pentedatillo, Gerace, Aspromonte National Park and of course Reggio Calabria. Reggio has great restaurants and bars as well as a fabulous street, "Garibaldi" for shopping. If you stay here you will need to drive almost everywhere. In the summer you may be able to pop down to the beach on foot but it is more advisable to drive as the highway is at the bottom of a small hill just away from the property. It isn't really a location where you can take a walk to a restaurant, car is advisable but dont let that put you off. This is a great property and a great location. If you are very fortunate you may get to try Nino'w bread. It isn't something he makes every day. When he does it is in large batches and it is the tastiest bread we have ever eaten.

I was looking for a nice adventure. Im pretty easy going, thus im not high maintenance...my girlfriend is similar. We lucked out on this spot though because it certainly exceeded our expectations. Let me tell you why!: 1) The apartment was well equipped and clean 2) The staff was friendly, welcoming and professional 3) Location was nice, whereby providing some opportunities for nice views....ask about the different room choices! 4) Nearby gravel beach was very nice for snorkeling, and situated in a small bay 5) Ever been to Aeolian Islands? No? Get ready for paradise!
