“A wonderful apartment with outstanding views & a most generous owner!”

If there were a wifi connection for computer devices (a separate phone contract provides some reception), this might be the perfect apartment for value. As it is, so outstanding in other ways, (we used local bars and the like for computer needs or did without when necessary), it was so comfortable and accommodating, we loved our week here and would choose it again..

In our eleven weeks, we've never experienced sun much generosity and largesse in our eleven Italian weeks thus far on the part of an owner as Grazia provided us with a cornucopia of consumer delights by way of fruits, snacks, crackers, eggs, milk, juice, yoghurts etc. The apartment has a very efficient clothes washer and hanging wash on either of two balconies on the provided race makes it all easy.

In all our time here in Italy over nearly a full spring in twelve settings, this had to be tied with Praiano for the most compelling vistas,from two balconies on different levels.Scilla is a near perfect village for a base in Calabria (or anywhere) in our opinion. From here, we explored nearby Sicily, and the wonders of Calabria, east west coast and central mountain regions.

We could not be more pleased (well wifi would have helped otherwise) with our memories of both Scilla and Raggion di Sole as provided by a most helpful owner in Grazia.

Grazie tanto, Grazia. (I always wanted to memorialize that once and now that itch's been scratched) .

“lovely home from home”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just returned from a weeks stay here and it was much more then we hoped for. Grazia was helpful and friendly collecting us from the airport, providing us with plenty of essentials from shower soap to milk and eggs, she was always available for advice and gave us tips on getting around. The house itself could do with a bit of work, the downstairs bathroom is damp and has a spare room that feels a little strange. The air conditioning dripped water loudly and stopped working but we were really comfortable here. The kitchen and balcony were lovely with a beautiful view over looking the harbour. It is a walk up steps and hills to the supermarket and a short walk down to the beach all hard work in the heat but nearby with a convenient little train for when you can't face the trek. Very good value for money. I would happily return.
