The space

U'Locu has been a small family working estate of about 250 acres since the beginning of last century. The main farm building was resorted 40 years ago and is now serving as the summer residence to the Martinelli family of three generations. Here we grow a selection of regional organic vegetable and fruits that are available to you from our gardener Matteo. Who is also very pleased to give you are garden tour and is knowledgable of the local area. Middle generation Roberto was a famous volleyball player for Italy therefore the tennis courts are set up for most ball games.

We are located on the edge of the ancient village of Parghelia. Relaxed and pretty with very little traffic, Parghelia has an old world charm. Within 3 minutes walk you will reach our local shops and fresh fruit & vegetable market where you can buy local and international foods and wines. The village is the home to 3 restaurants and 5 bar/ice cream/cafes that serve from early morning till late. Yet, once through the private gates at U'Locu you are back in the quiet of our rural setting.

Our two, quiet white sand beaches are a short 10min off road stroll down the village steps. Super clear water with rock pools and great snorkelling. The beaches are shallow with calm waters that are ideal for children of all ages. The area is also home to over 20 beaches spanning 10km of coastline.

We had a fantastic stay at Daniela's. She was a great host with many good tips for our stay there. The apartment was superb. We world love to come again. And the beach was as they would say in Italy "perfetto".

Daniela was a very charming and gracious host. The apartment was large enough for the 5 of us. It is set in a quaint and beautiful village. It is a short hard walk to one of the most beautiful beaches in Parghelia and very close to Tropea. The kids loved playing with the dogs and a very cheeky cat. There is an extra charge for linen which we hadn't expected, but it was an amazing place to stay and we felt very welcome.

Daniela was very friendly, preperared to help us when we needed it. The apartment is situated in a beautiful garden, close to the village, markets and restaurants. We had a possibility to taste an excellent calabrian food. The beaches are very picturesque and its distace isn´t so significant if the people spend too much time by seating in their cars and offices. They make something for their healthy.

We had a wonderful two weeks in the comfortable and clean apartment. Everything we could wish for was available. We loved the area, the smell of the beautiful garden, with fruit and vegetables, the tennis court, and also our neighbors from London. Parghelia is a small, friendly and nice village just a few minutes walk from the apartment. The beautiful beaches of Parghelia are easy accessible. Making your own diner with fresh ingredients from the land and sea of Calabria is very nice if you love cooking. Otherwise the restaurants of Parghelia will offer you a very good alternative Above all we were impressed by the charming, helpful and warm presence of Daniela. My daughters kept asking me how I found this little paradise. Well, if you read this review, you are close to finding it yourself! Daniela, thanks for everything! We will certainly come back!

We did not meet Daniela but she emailed us and, while we were there, texted us - she was very helpful and concerned that we were OK. The Villa is set in beautiful surroundings and was mostly very peaceful - this was the main attraction for us. The other bonus is the nearness, niceness and convenience of the village (Parghelia) - just enough shops and (good) restaurants etc without being too touristy (in May/early June). The sea is pretty much 20 minutes walk away. One should be aware that other beaches are not easily, or not at all, accessible by the public. Not too much of a problem for us but it's worth mentioning.

Response from Daniela:
Hi David, you are right, I will put some english instructions into the villa, it may happen again that someone thinks that the thing on the wall is airconditioning - it looks like, but it is just a heater for the winter! I am sorry that you did not find the many beautiful beaches of the coast round Tropea, why didn't you ask me? Sorry for the mistake with the extras, I have now realised that airbnb does not contemplate it at all. In Italy it is very usual to take bed linen and towels from home when you rent an apartment. I will not ask for it again!

Ciao sono Daniela, ho la fortuna di vivere in posti bellissimi, d'inverno sono a Merano, in Alto Adige, e d'estate mi trasferisco a Parghelia, in calabria. Adoro la natura, i posti incontaminati in montagna come al mare, gli animali e i bambini ( ho 3 gatti e 3 figli) e naturalmente anche mio marito.
Mi piace avere ospiti, afittare gli appartamenti al mare per me è un occasione per conoscere persone, quasi sempre faccio amicizia con i miei clienti, soprattutto se hanno bambini e si trovano a giocare con la nostra Giorgia, che ha 5 anni.
Mi sento in qualche modo responsabile verso i miei ospiti, e cerco di contribuire il più possibile alla buona riuscita della loro vacanza in modo che possano portarsi a casa un bellissimo ricordo.
