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.

We spent here 25 days and loved every day! View is wonderful and beach excellent. Right place for privacy and peaceful living. Antonia is very helpful and easy to communicate, and Giulia promptly responded ever question we had. We felt as home from the very first day, and will certainly be back.

The view is breathtaking, surroundings not as amazing but also during Easter a lot of places are still closed. Thanks tio Antonia and Giuseppe's advices we found some amazing nice restaurants: Donna Orsola and Framicchè especially. We'd lob^ve to come back, it was extremely relaxing vacation.

La casa di Giulia é semplicemente un luogo unico al mondo.. la Poesia e la magia di questa proprietà difficilmente possono essere eguagliati! Rappresenta in pieno un'idea di lusso alternativo, perfetto per chi intende il lusso come solitudine e silenzio, in opposizione ai luoghi chiassosi del jet-set contemporaneo. La casa é costruita per contemplare e meditare sullo spettacolo della natura, é un anfiteatro sul tramonto e sul mare.. non a caso é stata costruita dallo scritto Giuseppe Berto.. solo esserci stati può rendere l'idea di cosa questa casa sia in grado di far vivere. Grazie Antonia (la mamma di Giulia) per la tua squisita presenza!
