This is authentic Italy! Shop in the local markets, sip cappuccino at the many cafes and taste all of the cakes! Buy your wine directly from the vat's, eat local food almost in Mamma's kitchen, tucked away on side streets, down little alleyways dotted all over the countryside. Our apartment is new and part of a unique complex for the area, there are 90 units, all two bedroom with a common large pool, the community is gated.The neighbours are from Scotland, England and Ireland, they are friendly and helpful and thrilled to be at their place in the sun! They will give you directions and suggestions if you wish, or discover the area on your own. The Sea, the Ionian Sea is beautiful,clean,and sparkling it is a 2 minute drive from the apartment, the beach is sandy. The local people walk ...This is authentic Italy!

The Sea, the Ionian Sea is beautiful,clean,and sparkling it is a 2 minute drive from the apartment, the beach is sandy. The local people walk the sidewalk along the beach eating locally made gelato and chatting about all local events.You will see the older men there gathered, drinking espresso and discussing the world, government and family. There are little towns all over the hills and continuously along the coast, there is much to discover. Sicily is 2 hours away, driving, bus or train. The scenery along the drive is beautiful!! The apartment is well equipped to create a wonderful meal from the fresh market offerings,these are the type of markets that when you buy 6 fresh oranges for a euro they give you an extra one or 2, this produce is locally grown and fresh, fresh, tomatoes that tastes like tomatoes and wow are they good! There are of course many, many restaurants in the town and along the roads around the town. There are nice, unique shops to shop and there is a mall 7 minutes driving time. This is authentic Italy, you will not find many chain stores here, only IperSpar and one McDonalds, the rest are family owned shops and stops, each unique. A car is recommended and can be hired from the airport or right at GioiosaMore

About the neighbourhood
My favorite places in Gioiosa are: Golosia for cappuccino or a cold beer on their outdoor patio. RicaRoka on Saturday nights. Micuicola Cantina for wines from the vat's and local cheese and sausage, the owners speak english and are very helpful, I also always buy the Bergamot face cream while I am there - it is awesome! Micuicola Restaraunt (right on the main street) is great Friday night, live local entertainment, nice soft singing and great local food. La Cucina, in an old stone building on the left hand side of the road on the way to Rochella, really nice place. Santa Caterina up in the old town by the town square, great local food. There are many festivals in Southern Italy and difficult to pin down, our key holder Carlos will be able to tell you if there are any festivals duri...
How to get there
Gettting there! Ryan Air and Alitalia fly into Lamesia (SUF), you can rent a car at the airport and the drive is 1 1/2 hours. You can also arrange for an airport pickup, price depends on how many people, luggage, time of arrival, etc. We have the names of a few companies that provide this service. The train from Rome to Rosarno takes between 5-61/2 hours depending on which train you get, a pick up from Rosarno is 50 euros to the apartment. The bus from Rome takes 6 1/2 hours and arrives right on the main street of Gioiosa Marina, where our key holder will meet you and direct you to the apartment. A rental car is recommended and can be hired in Gioiosa or at the airport.
