Review 1663: Owner, Villetta Mimma Vittoria


Review by Wade F from TX

2bed/2bath house in Gioa Tauro, Calabria


4/30/2005, 7 days


This home was located in central Gioia Tauro. It was beyond reproach, in every manor.

Nearby Amenities

Anything you needed to make your trip enjoyable was within 50 meters, food shopping etc.

The House/Apartment

The villetta is in awesome shape with all the things that make you feel as if you were in your own home.


No garden but less than 50 meters there is a park with a great view of the lower city and the sea.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Everything was perfect and modern.


Nothing in this home is less then perfect.


Everything was perfect and we had a great time in our cooking class there.

Problems or Bonuses

The home itself was a very pleasant surprise.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

Michael's family was great, and spoke just enough English, but not so much that you felt you were still at home.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

Most defiantly! This is the hidden jewel of Italy, unlike most other areas you are not fighting with the crowds. We were the only Americans in town. Which allows one to see what the Italian life is really like.

Things to do in this area

We had a fantastic, magical stay at Villeta Mimma Vittoria in May of 2005! The town and people were delightful and the weather was ideal. Our entire stay in Southern Italy was a trip we won't soon forget. Gioia Tauro is a great little town that really allows you to immerse yourself in local culture and food. Our cooking lesson was very fun and we've been making canneloni here in Texas for our friends and family ever since. We especially enjoyed neighboring Tropea, Palmi and Scilla as well. Messina was breathtaking and a must see.
