The house is in two halves; another family occupied the other half. This worked well; there was no noise and one would hardly have know we were sharing. There is air conditioning for a small additional charge. The space was very adequate for four adults in two bed rooms. The veranda overlooks the sea.
The beach is ten minutes walk down the hill; the same distances to Scopello village where there are excellent restaurants and a nice bakery, and to the delightful Zingarro National Park.
We did not have a car which we thought might be a disadvantage but managed with buses and occasional taxi. The owner was helpful and took us to the villa from Castellemare, about 10 miles away.
The owner was very helpful generally, and our stay a very enjoyable one.
