Review 1667: Owner, Villetta Mimma Vittoria


Review by Penelope Dann from Florida

2bed/2bath house in Gioa Tauro, Calabria


June 2005, 4 weeks


In the small town of Gioia Tauro. Very nice location. We loved the city and areas we visited.

Nearby Amenities

Conveniently located and within walking distance to markets, shopping, restaurants and train station.

The House/Apartment

Very modern, comfortable and extremely clean and well kept. Two bedrooms and one full bath up, living and dining area on first floor next to a fully equipped and modern kitchen, bath down.


No pool but outside patio area.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Furniture like new, comfortable, plenty of room, weekly maid service.


Very comfortable and large bedrooms, lots of storage. Wait until you see the bathroom! Glass counters and bowls, large shower with "rain" shower head. First floor bath most convenient.


Extremely well equipped. We enjoyed cooking almost all of our meals here since one of the markets was just around the corner.

Problems or Bonuses

The owner went above and beyond to acquaint us with the villetta, the city and surrounding areas. My husband and I walked all over Gioia Tauro, and to the train station from where we took and enjoyed day trips to beautiful surrounding areas.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

Rented from the owner who was most helpful. He speaks English as does his "keyholder" in Gioia Tauro who also was most helpful.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

Highly recommend this location to anyone wanting a total Italian experience. The people were kind, friendly and helpful. We had fun communicating using our limited Italian and they their limited English.

Things to do in this area

Anthony's Restaurant is a beautiful and special place. Wonderful food and within walking distance of the villetta. In addition to Gioia Tauro and the seaport we especially enjoyed Reggio Calabria, Tropea, Scilla, Messina and Tauromina, Sicily. Beautiful spots and views.
