George's spacious and elegant home in Belmonte Calabro has the most amazing views of the mountains, sea and stars. Everything was perfect from the start. Marissa greeted us with the keys and a tour of the home. She then introduced us to the owner of the restaurant downstairs and took us around the town. (We highly suggest Francesco's restaurant with amazing food, especially the antipasti.) Marissa is very helpful and available! George is very responsive should there be any issues.
Belmonte is an enchanting town that is filled with kind people -- offering umbrellas or rides when we were caught in the rain unprepared. Everyone we met was welcoming. We had several wonderful pasta and meat dinners at the Bar Dello Sport. An amazing town full of very special people.
Each day we walked down the path to the sea for a swim. It is a shorter route then the road and takes about 15 minutes. A great workout as it is steep. (We understand there is also a bus option or driving is easy with much parking at the beach.) '
The town also has a grocery store, pharmacy, bakery, coffee bars, etc. They are all very close.
We loved our stay in George's home and hope to return again soon. It is truly a magical space within an enchanting hill town.
We arrived exhausted from our road trip and were thrilled to see a kitchen well stocked to cook our evening meal. We unloaded our bags and were wisked off by Rene's family to take us to the local market for supplies. We ate our first meal ( and many more to come) on the lovely outdoor veranada. The cool mountain air coupled with a spectacular vista of the Nocera T village and her lustrious mountains were all we needed for our first night's welcome slumber.
The bedrooms are spacious, clean , modern with very comfortable beds. The master bedroom has two french doors with balconys. I slept with the doors open (a screen is provided). I have never slept better. The bathrooms are very modern and spacious. The second bedroom is a bit smaller but more than adequate with a private bathroom and one large french door with a small balcony, and an opposing window. All rooms are bright and cheerful. Both bedrooms have a large armoire. The lighting is good for reading. Light switches easy to find. The stairway leading up to the bedrooms has a railing. The kitchen, as I mentioned, was wellstocked with kitchen utensils, pots and pans, and all the basic neccessities should you need to cook your first night. The refridgertaor was stocked with water and other welcome treats ( even abottle of wine!) There is table for four in the kitchen but we chose to eat outside and used the table to prepare our meals..
The living room has a comfy sofa and is modern and well equipted with a flat screen TV. The Internet was good. If you plan on streaming -bring a portable modem. The Internet is adequate for emails etc but not streaming movies. We absolutely loved the home! I would recommend this home to all my friends and hope to return some day. You will need a car . Beaches, ruins, mountains, trekking, lots to explore! Oh, and did I mention the olive groves? Spectacular!
