The house is an enlarged A-house of 105 sqm, distributed on approximately 60 sqm on the ground floor with living room / kitchen and a bedroom, as well as a bathroom / toilet with bidding. Furthermore, a washing machine.
The kitchen includes besides gas stove, electric oven and dishwasher too (Danish) coffee maker (Italian) caffeterina, hand mixer, blender as well as necessary equipment and services to 8 people.
1st floor contains two bedrooms - one with large balcony with stunning ocean views, and a bathroom / WC with bite. Furthermore, small behind-the-balcony. We use it to dry space, but the evening sun in the off-season can be enjoyed here (in other seasons have I got plenty of sun and want only shade).
The terrace is covered and has an outdoor kitchen and barbecue.
The living room is small by Danish standards, but is necessary when the Calabrian wind or when a heavy rain squall deprive us of the opportunity to sit on the terrace.
The living room consists of two double beds with a small coffee table in between. From the sofas is a fantastic view of the lower part of Villa Collina, as well as harbor and sea.
Conversely, a small sideboard.
There is TV with digital satellite receiver (DVB-S Free-to-air) receiver and DVD / CD player / home cinema.
Since there are both indoor and outdoor-kitchen there is ample space. Out-kitchen is described under the terrace.
The kitchen includes equipment for 8 people, as well as electric oven, gas cooker with extractor, fridge and small freezer and dishwasher. Furthermore, Danish coffee maker, Italian cafeterina, hand mixer, hand blender and much more.
When the dining table is rarely used, we have chosen a small pull-out table. It fills therefore nothing when it just appears as marketing space, but it can be pulled out so that can sit 8 around. The lamp can be moved accordingly.
The 3 bedrooms are almost identical in size and all furnished with double beds (200 * 160). In one room there are in addition two guest beds, so the total number of sleeps reaches 8th
The room on the ground floor has a narrow but high and well used built-in closet, covered by a curtain.
The rooms on the first floor have large wardrobes, how we have locked by half in one room to our private matters.
All rooms have shutters which effectively keeps heat and light out while curtains (after Italian style) are only for decoration.
There is also an iron and ironing board.
The house also has a balcony attached to one of the bedrooms. From here it is a formidable view, especially at night when the flashing light from the many towns along the coast provide a fantastic experience.
There is room for a couple of chairs, and is a nice place to take evening coffee or a cold drink in the summer heat.
Terraces with and without cover
The house is born with a large covered terrace facing east / water. This has outdoor kitchen and barbecue. The cover and the terrace goes around the house wide, but one half can be used only a single chair wide.
We have in addition made 2 sun terraces in the garden (see this), a morning-sheltered terrace with sea views, and a large sun terrace next to the covered terrace.
Once the driveway, walkways and sun terraces are taken from there is not much to have back.
The attempt was kept in a simple style with Italian plants and grass, including citrus trees and olive trees.
The lower garden has a practical shower to just rinse salt / sand after a walk on the beach, or just to a washing agent when left in the sun.
57 sqm, so there is room for more than the car. We have 2 bikes (cheap discount models, so they care enough not to the big mountain trip) and some beach stuff, as well as rackets and tennis balls.
This is also where furniture is stored outside the season. Not that they can not be used throughout the year, more in Calabria blows often in sharp breath, and the chairs can fly around - so more of a security when there are not any.
Our car is in the garage, so you come in your own car / rental car yes then it will unfortunately have to stay outside.
We have in one corner a locked area where we have our private stores and other things which are not covered by the lease, and all the mess that we do not have anything else to do with.Get the full listing »
