One of the many reviews about Villarosa
Villarosa is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the beautiful, breathtaking views.
It is comfortable and has every amenity to make your stay absolutely perfect!
It is spacious and comfortable and very well maintained!
It is clean and airy and we would love to stay there again and again!
We particularly enjoyed the Tartufo di Pizzo (hazel truffle).
Rianaldi's Ristorante and Bakery in Gerace is also worth noting.
The cookies were delicious!!!
We also loved all of the history of Locri and Gerace.
Such a beautiful spot on the planet and Villarosa is the place to enjoy both cities!
There is a wonderful museum and ruins to visit nearby in Locri; and Gerace houses the most beautiful church and museum as well.
We hope to go back someday soon and we will definitely stay at Villarosa!!!
We would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful home to our friends and family and we have enjoyed showing our pictures over and over again!
Thank you Rosanna, Santina and Marisa for such loving care.
