Die Casa rossa befindet sich an einem Berghang zusammen mit ca 9 Doppelhäuser und einem Swimmingpool. Die Entfernung von Citadella del Capo ist mit dem Auto gute 5 Minuten, allerdings sind nach der Abzweigung von der SS 18 noch 2 enge Serpentinen und eine schmale Straße zu fahren. Die Villa hat eine große und grüne Rasenfläche, sowie eine schattenspendende Steineiche. Zum Gemeinschafts-Pool sind es gut 1 Minute zu Fuß. Leider war zwar der poolservice fast täglich vor Ort, doch die Verschmutzung durch Laub, Ameisen und Insekten im Wasser wurde nur unzureichend behoben, vermutlich durch nicht funktionelle Filteranlage. Oftmals war auch zu wenig Wasser im Pool. Der Besitzer kümmerte sich umgehend um unser Anliegen bzgl. Pool und stand auch für eventuelle Fragen zur Verfügung. Man merkt, dass die Besitzer das Haus als eigenes Holiday Home nutzen.
Das Haus ist komfortabel, in der Küche alle möglichen Geräte vorhanden(Kaffeemaschine, ital. Espressomaschine, Wasserkocher, Mikrowelle, Herd mit Ceranfeld und Backrohr, GS, Waschmaschine. Mehr als nötig Gläser, Geschirr und Kochtöpfe). An den Fenster und Türen befinden sich Fliegengitter. Auf der Überdachten Terrasse steht großer Tisch mit 7 Stühle, 2 klappliegen und 2 rollliegen. Haus hat Splitlevel mit 2 -3 Stufen. 1 Schlafzimmer und 1 Bad ist im EG, 2 Schlafzimmer und 1 Bad im OG mit einer großen Terrasse mit Blick zum Meer.
Auch die Restaurantempfehlungen durch Besitzer und das Gästebuch waren hilfreich.
Lediglich ein paar italienische Kräuter wie Rosmarin etc. fehlten uns im Garten.
We spent a week in this lovely villa in August having spent a couple of days in a very busy Sorrento previously.
The villa is absolutely beautiful, very comfortable and very well appointed - every thing you could possibly need. Much more like a home from home than a holiday rental.
The location of the villa is stunning - fabulous views of the mountains and the sea. The swimming pool had just been completed when we arrived - the pool could not be faulted.
As well as a glorious infinity pool for all to enjoy, there is also a small childrens roped off pool area for small ones to cool down in safety. The gardeners were busy finishing off the landscaping which I am sure will look wonderful when finished.
Although you could be forgiven for wanting to spend all your time by the pool, there are also lots of very nearby beaches that had beautiful clear water and were very safe for young children. There are lots of interesting places to visit nearby, lovely towns clinging to nearby hilltops and a highlight for us was a morning spent at a beautiful nearby monastry
There are lots of excellent local restaurants serving delicious pizza, pasta and ice cream etc and also large well stocked supermarkets selling fabulous local produce if you want to self cater.
In summary, this was a very relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting in a place where many Italians choose to take their holidays.
Wasn't sure what to expect from this part of Italy but it definitely did not disappoint. The villa from the photos looked amazing and when we arrived it lived up to that. The views from the garden and patio were stunning. We will definitely be coming again.
We had a wonderful stay in the villa in calabrie. The house is very pleasant and complete. The surrounding is wonderful with nice villages eand beautiful beaches. The wetter was wonderful. Yes we had a wonderful vacation
We had a great family holiday at Case Rosse, we drove from Naples which is just over a 3.5 hour drive away, lovely scenery on route and stayed for two weeks. The property was clean bright and spacious, everything you need for an easy and relaxing holiday. Nick and Lyn have thought of pretty much everything and our boys enjoyed the garden to play in. There are some nice touches like DVD's for when the day gets hot and everybody needs some down time and some toys and board games for little ones. The communal pool is only a two minute walk from the villa which we all enjoyed, it is well kept and was great to cool off, there are also a couple of unspoilt beaches only a short drive away. I have no hesitation in recommending this property especially if you are looking for a family holiday with high standard of accommodation.
We recently stayed at this villa for a fortnight across Aug/Sept 2014 with my wife and our 3 kiddies (ages 6-10). We loved it and highly recommend.
It was great from the start - queries about the place were answered very quickly and the owners were very flexible on start day, which was just what we were after - it also built confidence right from the beginning.
Instructions on how to get to the villa were spot on (a car is essential), and it is fully equipped (e.g. dishwasher, washing machine and all the plates, pots, pans and everything else in a very decent kitchen). We always take a few kitchen items with us, but we really didn't need them here.
The villa is very spacious and three bedrooms are lovely, the mattresses very comfy and clean, modern decor and bedding. The view of the sea and coastline from the upstairs balcony was a dream and we felt very relaxed after just 24-48 hrs. The large lawned area really is super green as in the pictures as it's auto-watered every evening!
The little touches are lovely - we took a portable speaker, but there is a Hi-Fi that works just fine. There's a large flat-screen TV with limited satellite channels, but we never needed to use that as there was always something to do locally. There's a DVD player and plenty of DVDs. There'a a huge box of games (which we did use!), a box upstairs packed full of kiddies books and downstairs there's a few bookcases full of novels, guide books and useful info. There's even an extension lead for all your UK 3-pin electrical items that plugs into an Italian socket! There's no WiFi, I roamed on Vodafone and easily got 3G in the villa to set up a hotspot for the kiddies devices.
The pool area is big, just a minute or so from the villa, has an attendant until 1pm each day and shared with a few other villas. We used it extensively. Unfortunately there was an issue with the pool in our second week, but I'm informed that was dealt with very swiftly.
Calabria in August is hot! We had to use the fans in each bedroom every night, and be prepared for mosquitoes! We find that the smoking spirals work quite well and these can be bought locally.
There are plenty of beaches nearby, but they do vary in quality, so it's worth doing a bit of research. We loved Diamante Sud which is nearby and Tropea - a good 2 hour drive is fantastic for both the town on a cliff and its magnificent beach. We went twice during our stay.
Lidl nearby in Cetraro.
We loved this place & are very likely to return!
