This place is truly amazing - we could have sat on our terrace forever with it's views to the sea and up the valley. Gianfranco and Gabriella have done a fabulous job of restoring our apartment with it being in keeping for a historic village. We also had a couple of meals that they cooked which really highlight the local food cooked in a traditional manner - delicious! We loved walking around the village with it's alleyways and stairways. It's a short drive down to Belmonte Marina with it's beautiful beach and lovely clear water. Would certainly recommend it for something different and very relaxing.
After 3 weeks of sight seeing in wonderful Southern Italy we wanted a relaxing location for the last few days of our holiday. When I spoke to Pia to make the booking, she was so helpful and warm that I knew we would enjoy our time at Casa Fiori.
Pia and Tom kindly met us at Belmonte Calabro train station so we didn't have to rely on sat-nav/GPS to find our way to the house. They gave us a tour of the house and gardens, and made sure we had everything we needed before leaving us to relax for the evening.
Casa Fiori is spacious, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. It's tastefully furnished and has everything needed to be a real home from home. The living room and bedrooms are well appointed and have a/c and heating should you need it. The bathrooms are modern and fitted with excellent showers. The kitchen is very well equipped and enabled us to buy food locally and cook at home, which was very welcome after 3 weeks of eating out. The outside spaces are great for unwinding and enjoying the stunning views and peaceful surroundings.
The local beaches and towns were quiet (in May), but nice to explore. The steps up to the Centro Storico of Amantea are worth the trek, especially for the excellent Gelateria on Corso Umberto I. The towns of Pizzo and Tropea are only an hour/1.5 hours or so away by car, so make good day trips.
Pia and Tom have worked very hard to create such a wonderful place and are such natural hosts. We wholeheartedly recommend Casa Fiori and would love to return.
