Calabria; for your perfect Italian Adventure!
We have stayed at Isca Marina twice and would strongly recommend it as a superb holiday destination. The villa is only a few hundred metres from the beach which has beautiful white sand with a gradual incline into the sea. It is an ideal place for children as there are no currents and a shallow seabed for quite a distance.
The locals are all very friendly and the food is fantastic and very reasonably priced. If you feel adventurous a day trip into the mountains will be rewarded with stunning views along the coast and really cheap restaurants offering locally sourced dishes. A truly relaxing and enjoyable time was had by all.

I visited Isca with family and friends with the youngest being 8 and the eldest 57. We travelled from Standsted Airport to Lamezia and hired a car to travel to the house and to get around during our stay.
The weather was absolutely beautiful. The key feature of the location is that the beach is literally a 2 minute walk from the house, there is no noise or light pollution at night which made for a most memorable bbq night on the beach, as there was a meteor shower that lit up the sky. We were spell-bound and talked of it for weeks. The beach side cafe is great fun for the children too.
Local towns and villages have authentic artisan restaurants. One up in the hills is an agro tourisimo which was unique in every way and the owner was fluent in English which really helped. We intended to stay for lunch however we were welcomed so warmly we ended up staying for 6 hours sampling dishes, homemade wine and olives.
The house was cool and clean. The furniture and amenities made the self-catering element so easy. We would most certainly return again.

We have just spent the most amazing 10 days in Collinetta. Its paradise with a rustic feel. If you are looking for a relaxed, stress free holiday with the added advantage of a modern brand comfortable apartment look no further.
Booking the holiday was easy and any initial questions we had before the booking were answered by the owner in a timely and honest fashion.
Living locally to Stansted airport the 3 hour flight was easy into Lamezia. The apartment is brand new and spotless. Being on the top floor the views are gorgeous. I particularly loved the balcony especially in the evening being able to sit out until the earlier hours reading in silence was idyllic.
So if you are looking for a holiday with a very relaxed agenda we thoroughly recommend staying in Collinetta with the added bonus of a clean immaculate apartment.
