Un petit commentaire en français ?
OK, comme je vois que la plupart n'écrivent qu'en anglais, hé bien en voici un en français, ma langue maternelle de Belge de Bruxelles, si ça peut aider les unilingues francophones de passage sur ce site. Oui-oui, voici bien une adresse à conseiller aux personnes désireuses de se ressourcer dans un endroit tout-à-fait typique de l'Italie profonde et qui aiment les contacts personnels avec les gens du cru, les chansons de rue le soir, l'accordéon ... Les lacets menant à la plage sont nombreux, mais le paysage est magnifique et est un plaisir en soi. Une excellente expérience, à n'en point douter !
Peace & Tranquility
If you are a writer trying to finish your novel, an artist wanting to sketch Italian village life of a past era, or just looking for a tranquil place to spend some time relaxing and reading, then this is the place for you. My wife and I enjoyed our stay in Pietrapaola. The apartment is quaint and has all the right touches. The people are kind and generous (I am biased because this is my grandfather's hometown) and the town itself is charming and interesting. Just keep in mind that there are few reliable services here (no restaurants) and the bus schedule is somewhat erratic. So make sure you have a car so you can head down to the marina when necessary.
Also, dealing with owners Peter and Rhonda was a pleasure and all the transactions and communications went smoothly.
Winter holiday in Pietrapaola
We spent two weeks in this prettily renovated house midway through Pietrapaola a quaint old village located between two big cavernous rocks. The house, particularly the kitchen is well provided with everything (even with oven) and very tidy just as we had all support we needed from the helpful people taking care of the house. We were also really excited about the pleasant people of Pietrapaola all receiving us cordially, we had a nice time sitting on the village square with bonfire etc. Even in winter we had pleasant weather conditions, especially for hiking in the mountains, olivary and orange plantations, canyons and forests nearby Pietrapaola.
The house is really lovely, well decorarted and perfectly furnished.
The little village is really romantic and located in a beautiful landscape. It takes only 12 minutes by care to reach the fantastic beach. The neighbours are friendly.
Dear Peter and Rhonda, thanks again for this amazing vaccation.
Thankyou for your kind review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your holiday in Calabria and found Pietrapaola and our house warm and inviting. On holiday you need to feel comfortable with your surroundings to really relax and enjoy yourself. It is rewarding for us that we were able to create the atmosphere for you to have a fantastic holiday to remember. We look forward to when you visit our "home" again. Ci vediamo presto.
Abgelegenes idyllisches Dorf
Die gut ausgestattete FEWO liegt etwas abseits, jedoch in einem wunderschönen Bergdorf. Die Zufahrt ist zu Zeit nur über eine "eigentlich" gesperrte Straße möglich. Die Hauptzufahrt von Pietrapaola Marina nach Pietrapaola ist momentan wegen Straßenschäden nicht möglich. So benötigt man etwa 30 Minuten bis ans Meer, viele Kurven und teilweise schlechte Straße. Für Individual-Reisende und Naturliebhaber jedoch ein guter Ausgangspunkt. Italienische Sprachkenntnisse, auch rudimentär, sind sehr von Vorteil um mit den sehr netten und hilfsbereiten Dorfbewohnern in Kontakt zu treten, wenn man will geht das sehr schnell. Man erfährt sehr viel Interessantes über das Leben und die Geschichte der Gegend. Die Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind im Ort etwas beschränkt (eine Bar macht gelegentlich Pizza - sehr gut, fahrende Händler). In 5km Entfernung in Mandatoriccio ist es besser.
Ein Mietwagen ist absolutes Muß, da keine öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel vorhanden sind.
Wer Badeurlaub oder Party liebt ist hier fehl am Platz. Für uns war es ein schöner ruhiger und erholsamer Urlaub. Und nicht zu vergessen, man ist hier in den Bergen, es geht nur rauf oder runter, man sollte nicht allzu schlecht zu Fuß sein.
Die Kontakt zum Eigentümer und Verwalter war immer gegeben und sehr freundlich.
Una casa deliziosa in un paesino magico
Pietrapaola è un piccolo paese davvero speciale, ben tenuto dagli abitanti e in una splendida posizione. E' un'ottima base per escursioni sia al mare sia nella Sila. E' indispensabile avere la macchina.
La casa è molto graziosa, ristrutturata di recente e ben rifinita. Non manca nulla di ciò che serve (inclusa lavatrice, aspirapolvere e attrezzature varie per la cucina). Ci siamo trovati molto bene.
Pietrapaola is a very special little town, well kept by the inhabitants and a great location. It 'a good base for trips to the sea and the Sila. You need have a car. The house is very nice, newly renovated and well refined. There is anything you need (including washing machine, vacuum cleaner and various equipment for the kitchen). We enjoyed it very much.
The Mare di Jonio and beach is only 20 minutes drive down the mountain through the scenic farmland that is lined with groves of ancient olive trees. Avoid the summer crowds of other well known destinations and experience the warm and friendly culture that Calabria has to offer..the traditional Italian way of life.
The ancient towns of Crotone, Rossano and Cosenza are all within a leisurely days drive and offer a mix of the old historico Centro and the new vibrant Italian shopping experience, from the boutique galleries to the modern shopping centres.
Sampling the fresh produce of the local farmers and vineyards makes dining-in a different experience everyday. Dining-out at the family owned restaurants at nearby Pietrapaola marina, Mandatoriccio, Mirto, Cariati, San Giovanni, Ciro Marina.
For a truly relaxing crowd avoiding holiday recharge your batteries at Pietrapaola. Come and enjoy!
