About the property

Villa Marina

Two summer holiday rentals. Perfectly situated in front of the beautiful and romantic blue Ionian sea and a splendid sugar white sand beach, our property has two independent self catering villas which are surrounded by a magnificent private garden, rich in high pine trees, eucalyptus, olive, orange and lemon trees as well as various type of flowers and a vineyard.

In the Villa Marina Grande the unit we rent is a 1st floor apartment for 6 persons, with spacious veranda and terrace that has a breathtaking view of the garden and the sea, ideal for eating outside in the summer. At a distance of about 50 meters, there is the Villa Marina Piccola, a lovely independent smaller villa for 4 persons, with a shaded veranda, perfect to eat “al fresco”. Close to all the local amenities for shopping, eating out and sight seeing it is also an excellent place to rest and relax.

Local area information: In the local area there are many interesting places to visit, from Graeco-Roman archaeological sites and museums to picturesque villages, untouched forests and marvellous beaches.

Interesting places to visit are:

Scolacium, a Greek-Roman archaeological site in an olive tree estate. You can see the theatre, the forum, and a small but interesting museum with statues and local archaeological findings. On the top of the hill you can visit the necropolis and admire a breathtaking view of the gulf. At the entrance you’ll find the ruins of a Norman church “La Roccelletta. You can also visit a olive mill which dates back to the beginning of last century.

Squillace: nice village on the hills, famous for ceramics.

Stilo: visit the tiny but perfectly preserved basilian church “La Cattolica” that dates back to 12th century.

Bivongi: newly restored basilian church where the monks from Greece still live and pray.

Serra San Bruno: in the middle of Serre Calabre (Calabrian central mountains), driving through impressive forests, you’ll find the village of Serra San Bruno with it’s Chartreuse where the German monk San Bruno lived. The place is also very famous for mushrooms.

Locri Epizefiri: wide archaeological site with a beautiful ancient Greek theatre and a very interesting museum.

Cropani: picturesque village with an interesting church.

La Sila: impressive Calabrian highland with two lakes and Silano pine forests.

Tropea: beautiful tourist resort on the Tirrenian sea.

Scilla: picturesque fisherman’s village close to Reggio Calabria, on the superb “Messina Strait” Reggio Calabria: the museum where the Bronzi di Riace and the lungomare with its breathtaking view of Sicily and Etna are well worth a visit.

Eolian Islands: organized one day cruise trips to the Eolian Islands from Soverato.

Gerace: most beautiful and picturesque town, with a very interesting ancient cathedral, churches and nice streets. Beaches: The Ionian coast of Calabria is mainly sandy, but you can find a most beautiful rocky coast in Pietragrande, Caminia and Copanello.

You will surely like the region of Calabria, still unspoiled by tourism, and you will enjoy the delicious food and good local wine in the many restaurants by the sea.

Perfect villa

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped, good location to the sea. Clean and good service from the contact person. Outdoor shower after a swim in the sea. A lot of supermarkets in Davoli and Soverato makes the life easier. Free internet at cafe More in Soverato.

4 sehr angenehme Urlaubswochen

  • 5 of 5

Villa Marina Piccola befriedigt fast alle Bedürfnisse eines anspruchvollen Urlaubers. Gepflegte Anlage, sehr familienfreundlich, es ist alles da was man von einer Ferienwohnung erwarten kann. Ruhige Lage, direkt am Strand, sehr gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten.

Das Mobiliar ist gemütlich und sehr geschmackvoll. Die Küche ist modern und pflegeleicht, es macht Spaß, darin zu kochen. Die Schlafräume sind gepflegt. Die Kissen, Decken und Matratzen sind sauber und in ausreichender Zahl vorhanden.

Wir hatten 4 sehr angenehme Urlaubswochen, man kann dieses Ferienhaus nur weiter empfehlen

An amazing place

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this amazing place after 6 years and again loved it. Everything was just perfect inside the villa and the outside setting is simply fantastic. The only improvement we would recommend is regarding the lack of a TV, VCR-DVD-CD player or internet. While the setting is conducive to a relaxed vacation away from the daily routine, having the ability to at least listen to some music or watch a movie every once in a while, if not being connected to the world via internet, would in our mind greatly improve the overall experience.

A wonderful villa in a magical place

  • 5 of 5

I had a fantastic holiday at this lovely villa. Set in beautiful gardens and lemons groves, the house is well presented, spotlessly clean and has all the facilities needed for a family stay, with a great kitchen and bathroom and outdoor shower for cleaning off the sand after a hard day on the beach. The terrace is spacious and shaded and looks over lovely gardens and out to the sea. In the afternoon the side terrace catches the sum for a spot of sunbathing if you don't fancy the beach - the most special thing about this place is the fact that it is right on the sea front and we could walk out of the garden, across the quiet road to the most beautiful golden sand and the clearest, safest water I have seen in Europe = a fantastic location and great for kids. There are a number of bars within walking distance selling good food and drinks but you must not miss Paulas gelateria abut 2k away 24 hours and the most amazing ice-cream in South Italy. Antonietta is a great hostess and you would love having a relaxing holiday in this beautiful, unspoilt and largely undiscovered part of Italy - I can see why the Italians want to keep it for themselves!!
