This beautiful villa is situated on a cliff overlooking the Tirrenean sea, just 15 minutes down the coast from the historical city of Tropea. It is perfect for couples travelling alone or with kids or even for a group of friends.

The space

The four acre property was once the home of Italian writer, Giuseppe Berto. The property has remained in the family and is now managed by myself and my mother. The villa was uniquely built on the beautiful cliffs of Calabria, overlooking the sea, a refuge from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A staircase was built directly into the rocks which provides direct access to a private beach otherwise only accessible by boat.

Guest access

There are many activities available at the nearby beaches from snorkeling to diving. In addition, there are agriturisms that can be toured, horseback riding, day trips to the Eolian Islands (3 hours by boat), and of course the beautiful city of Tropea.
In addition, guests have access to our extensive garden and fruit trees.

Interaction with guests

As my mother and I live on the property during the summertime, there is always somebody around to provide assistance and answer questions.
Upon request, we are happy to organize private, home-cooked dinners as well as breakfast, and picnic baskets for the beach. We are also able to arrange for airport transportation if necessary.

Other things to note

Please note that although in the pictures there is only one queen size bed shown, we are able to add another two twin beds to make a total of 4 beds.

Oh, gosh. Last year we stayed here for a week We liked it so thoroughly that we thought it might be a good idea to stay for two weeks this year. We were so so so wrong. Should have made it three...

What an amazing, special, enchanted place! We spent 8 nights here, and hardly left the estate. It was the most perfect place to regain our spirits and sense of humour; relax in the sunshine; watch the sunset from our deck chairs; cook simple summer food (often using the produce from the many veg patches around); swimming on crystalline waters and generally decompressing entirely from busy city lives. The hosts are charming and welcoming, and the salubrious nature of the place seemed to seep into every pore. The house was very comfortable for two, with the perfect spot to sit for every part of the day. Everything was in perfect working order and we lacked for nothing (except perhaps a grater for parmesan). We felt secluded and the privacy was wonderful. The estate is gorgeous, wild and filled with fruit trees, pines and prickly pears. The staircase to the beautiful beach can feel interminable in the heat of the day, but it did make the pizza later so much more worthy! What a true treasure this place is. We had the most perfect holiday.

Traumhafte Unterkunft für Naturliebhaber! Unsere Wohnung/Haus war schön und grosszügig. Die ruhige Lage und der kleine Privatstrand (430 Stufen) einfach einmalig! Eine kleine Auffrischung einzelner Möbelstücke und Utensilien werden wohl demnächst fällig und ein Moskitonetz über dem Bett wäre ein tolles Plus! Aber diese kleinen Makel werden durch die wunderbare Lage wieder wettgemacht. Der schönste Ort unserer Kalabrien Reise!

Wir hatten wundervolle Tage am Capo Vaticano bei Antonia (Mutter von Giulia) und Philipp. Auch, wenn uns das gebucht Apartment nicht zur Verfügung stand, konnte uns die Gastgeberin ein gleichwertiges Apartment (Casa Due) auf dem Areal anbieten, welches wir auch mit Freude nahmen. Es ist noch schöner, als auf den Bildern. Sehr stilvoll eingerichtet. Alles Nötige ist vorhanden und sehr sauber. Auf diesem Wege möchte ich Antonia und Philipp nochmals herzlichst für ihre Gastfreundschaft danken - es war fantastisch und wir kommen ganz bestimmt wieder.
