Review 1256: Owner, Villetta Mimma Vittoria


Review by Andy from England

2bed/2bath house in Gioa Tauro, Calabria


August 2004, 2 weeks


We booked the villa on the internet fairly late (as we often do) because we wanted to tour the lower part of Italy for a change last summer. Michael was so helpful in all of the information that he supplied and before we set foot on the plane we felt really prepared.

The villa was just as described and beautifully decorated and maintained. Gioia Tauro is a typical real Italian town with a typical laid back Italian atmosphere. However, in saying that, the people were extremely friendly and there was definitely a warm feeling there. If only the local council did more to advertise their virtues!

Our family of 6 toured the area extensively, thanks once again to Michael and his family for providing valuable information, and what a fabulous area! We liked it so much that we are seriously considering relocating ourselves to this part of the world permananently! Need I say more?

We still play Michael's CD on a regular basis to remind ourselves of a wonderful holiday.

You've done a great job, Michael. Keep it up and thank you ever so much for all your help, even while we were in your house, you still kept in touch to make sure that everything was ok. If ever your singing career flounders, and I can't imagine that it would, you ought to take up PR!
