Interesting places to visit are:

Scolacium, a Greek-Roman archaeological site in an olive tree estate. You can see the theatre, the forum, and a small but interesting museum with statues and local archaeological findings. On the top of the hill you can visit the necropolis and admire a breathtaking view of the gulf. At the entrance you’ll find the ruins of a Norman church “La Roccelletta. You can also visit a olive mill which dates back to the beginning of last century.

Squillace: nice village on the hills, famous for ceramics.

Stilo: visit the tiny but perfectly preserved basilian church “La Cattolica” that dates back to 12th century.

Better than the pictures - better than I dreamed

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Piccola was cozy, but clean and nicely appointed - Washing machine, dishwasher, and coffee pot used regularly. The house is located in Paradise - beautiful estate, abundant with fruit trees and flowers. Beach is right across the street and a little of the beaten path. So while can get busy, never too many people - even in August - high season.

Maria and her family are especially warm, welcoming and most helpful and accommodating needs and requests. Very respondive. Even helped arrange a guide for trekking in Bivongi.

Would love to return here.

Perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped, good location to the sea. Clean and good service from the contact person. Outdoor shower after a swim in the sea. A lot of supermarkets in Davoli and Soverato makes the life easier. Free internet at cafe More in Soverato.

4 sehr angenehme Urlaubswochen

  • 5 of 5

Villa Marina Piccola befriedigt fast alle Bedürfnisse eines anspruchvollen Urlaubers. Gepflegte Anlage, sehr familienfreundlich, es ist alles da was man von einer Ferienwohnung erwarten kann. Ruhige Lage, direkt am Strand, sehr gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten.

Das Mobiliar ist gemütlich und sehr geschmackvoll. Die Küche ist modern und pflegeleicht, es macht Spaß, darin zu kochen. Die Schlafräume sind gepflegt. Die Kissen, Decken und Matratzen sind sauber und in ausreichender Zahl vorhanden.

Wir hatten 4 sehr angenehme Urlaubswochen, man kann dieses Ferienhaus nur weiter empfehlen

An amazing place

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this amazing place after 6 years and again loved it. Everything was just perfect inside the villa and the outside setting is simply fantastic. The only improvement we would recommend is regarding the lack of a TV, VCR-DVD-CD player or internet. While the setting is conducive to a relaxed vacation away from the daily routine, having the ability to at least listen to some music or watch a movie every once in a while, if not being connected to the world via internet, would in our mind greatly improve the overall experience.
