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.
This house was very beautiful. We rented for 2 weeks with my kids and grand kids and they all loved it. The long 30 foot veranda was especially appreciated on those hot days at the beach. The grounds were filled with variety of fruit trees from Figs to Pears which my wife and I helped ourselves picking everyday of our stay. The kitchen was a little worn and needs updating but the rest of the house was great.
