It was a really perfect flat for rent, Giovanni was so nice and helpful. The apartmentwas clean, with white large towels, hair dryer and fully equipped kitchen. In the beginning we coul not find the right adress but everyone in Nicotera knows Giovanni so there is no problem with asking for directions and finding it. Nicotera has beautiful sandy beaches with few people. The parking place is free and easy to find. Tropea is also very nice and close to Nicotera. I really recomend Nicotera and Giovanni's apartments.
What can I tell? It's not a question of comfort or luxury. It's a question of autenticity. After all most a week in Nicotera and at Goivanni's and Rosa's house, we feel part of the family. We sleep in the heart of Calabria, culturally, with no filters. Although it was the hotest month in Calabria on the last hundred years and the house has no A/C, the ground floor, where the room is, is fresh and we slept marvellously. The first floor was hot when the temperature was 35º C or more, but you have a window to the sea, and that is more than you can ask. It's justt like a movie. As soon as the temparature at night lowered the 30º C, perfect! Giovanni serve us as a friend, the breakfast is like you are at home, and it's in the historic and noble area. Yes, you climb a lot, but that is Nicotera, and Nicotera is unique. Next to Piazza Garibaldi (it was here that he started the liberation of Italy), you have a breath-taking view to the Mediterranian Sea. We shall miss Giovanni, Rosa, and Calabria. Thanks for all.
He came and met us and escorted us to the newly restored medieval house. He was helpful and generous as we joined him in his cafe for evening drinks and breakfast. The location is above the sea and a n easy drive down. We enjoyed watching the swallows as they flew to and fro across the valley. We were very surprised by the lively Sunday evening in the piazza above the house.
We stayed at Giovanni and Rosa's place for 4 nights and it was great. They welcomed us very warmly and happily helped us out and gave us advices about our trip. The house was very nice and clean. The breakfast was very good: they left us some breakfast in the fridge but also invited us to take it on the terrasse of their cafe overlooking the valley. I warmly recommend their place and I hope we will be back too :)
A sorpresa non mi è stato dato l'appartamento che avevo prenotato ma un altro, col letto su un soppalco. L'interno è ben ristrutturato ma l'esterno e tutto il quartiere non sono proprio ben messi, per così dire, e la posizione è scomoda. Giovanni è stato disponibile, una volta incontrato, ma contattarlo per telefono e sms è stato impossibile.
