Close to Tropea!

Location was great! Staff lovely. We had a car and it took us less than 10mins to get to Tropea. The accom is close to little shops and eateries and a hair salon which came in handy. would stay here again. Your not paying for luxury, it's a simple place which is kept daily. Thank you for a great stay :)

Excellent B&B in Ricadi!

Although it was a little difficult locating the Villa at first, we found our way and were welcomed by Francesco and Renata. They were courteous and helpful in answering all our questions and accommodating. We enjoyed our daily breakfasts and the Staff was so friendly! Our room was cleaned daily and had all the we needed! The parking was free and the suggestions made by Francesco as to where to eat and the location of unique beaches was greatly appreciated. I highly recommend this B&B - it will feel like home!

Pros: The Villa was cleaned daily & the Staff was courteous & friendly. The property is well taken care of and very clean.

Cons: A garbage can in the bathroom is needed with extra hooks to hang towels would be helpful.

Location: The Villa is located in a quaint area which allowed us to talk to the neighbours and chit chat with other guests in the common area.

Wir haben kurzfristig für 2 Nächte gebucht. Die Einrichtung des Zimmers war okay. Leider roch es stark und unangenehm nach Schimmel. Den Kleiderschrank konnte man aus diesem Grund gar nicht nutzen. Das Bad war enttäuschend. Überall Schimmel in den Fugen, kein WC Papierhalter. Man wusste gar nicht wohin damit. Ausserdem sehr eng. Etwas kräftiger gebaute Besucher würden sich kaum umdrehen können. Es stand ein Föhn zur Verfügung, man konnte ihn leider nicht anstecken weil der Stecker nicht in die Steckdose ging. Das Personal am Morgen für das Frühstücksbuffet war sehr freundlich und aufmerksam. Die Auswahl am Buffet war in Ordnung aber überschaubar. Zur Hochsaison könnten wir verstehen wenn kurzfristig nur noch dieses Zimmer zur Verfügung gestanden hätte. Aber Ende September war das ganze Haus leer. Schade, denn eigentlich liegt es ganz schön und zentral. Also, Zimmer Nummer 2 im ersten Haus meiden.
