About the property

Huge Villa Has 4 Bedrooms And 4 Bathrooms.

The luxurious holiday home Villa Il Fortino is located near the beach of Santa Maria di Ricadi, in Capo Vaticano. The villa and the outbuilding cover an area of approximately 200 m². Il Fortino is just 350 metres from the sea and can accommodate up to 8 people. A perfect holiday destination for a large family or group of friends looking for a comfortable home in Calabria, near the sea.

Il Fortino consists of 2 buildings, the villa and the small outbuilding. The villa has a large living room, 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. In the small outbuilding are an extra bedroom and a small bathroom. On the inside everything has been done up with eye for details, from the subtle tones of the decor to the functional kitchen.

Outside the house you can find the large terrace, which is accessible from almost every room in the house. The swimming pool offers refreshment on hot and sunny days. Around the house you will find a large orchard with a lot of green, so your privacy is guaranteed.

Villa Il Fortino is an ideal holiday destination for anyone looking for a sophisticated and modern place to spend the holiday at. The close proximity to the beach and the idyllic town Tropea are great assets.

Cozy Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We recently went to Villa La Scogliera, with a group of friends and we had one of the best vacations ever. I would recommend this villa to everyone, and I hope to return soon.

First, the location is amazing. It is located near Tropea, in the area of Calabria with the most wonderful beaches, the best I have ever been in Europe. You can choose between small cozy and highly isolated rocky beaches, or bigger ones, a bit more crowded, but perfect for kids as they have bars and you can rent canoes and water bikes. Needless to say, both with crystal clear waters. For culture lovers, the location is also great because you can visit beautiful towns such as those of Tropea and Pizzo. Stromboli and the Aeolian Islands are also nearby and can be visited by boat. Additionally, the ride to and from the airport is only 1 hour.

The house exceeded our expectations. Perfect for groups, family or friends. It is really big with multiple exterior spaces, such as pool space (with pizza oven, showers and lounges), porche, garden and a beautiful terrazza where we could enjoy beautiful sunsets and an amazing view to the private beach. The kitchen is huge and very complete. If you like the idea of spending hours in the kitchen cooking with family or friends, this is the place. But if one day you dont feel like cooking, you can book the services of Concetta. One day she and her sisters, cooked an authentic Calabrese meals for us. To me, however, the most amazing characteristic of the house, is that you feel it is your own vacation home. It is a really cozy house, you see the pictures of the owner, and can feel the happiness that this family has had over the years in this house. Furthermore, the rustic decor and the fact that this house has everything you would need, it really makes you feel at home. In my opinion, this is something most of the rental places lack.

Finally, I would like to mention Enotria. They were always enthusiastic and went the extra mile to accomodate our needs, specially because some of us went there with kids. Corrado and Mimmo in Italy, were great. Transactions were smooth and they were always there when needed. All-in all a great experience we would like to repeat soon!
