I highly recommend this beautiful home. The host is very attentive. It is such a beautiful place to stay. We had breakfast on the terrace every morning with sunshine and palm trees and an incredible view of the mountains. Short drive to the sea. Kitchen stocked with everything you need for breakfast and even a bottle of wine! Plenty of space for the family and very clean. You will need a car or taxi to reach the home. Not accessible by public transportation.
Beautiful setting, excellent host and very clean. Highly recommended!!
Absolutely stunning villa - it far exceeded our expectations! The outside garden area is beautiful and we spent most days relaxing there not wanting to move. Massimilio is the nicest, kindest person you could ever wish to meet and very generous bringing us lots of different things to try. We were very sad to leave and just wish we had booked to stay for longer - a perfect holiday!!
La vera soddisfazione di questo lavoro è sapere che gli ospiti sono rimasti felici.. avere ospiti come voi è davvero un enorme piacere. Grazie a presto
A Little Slice of Heaven
Our time was amazing and memorable at “La Querciaia”. Massimiliano is an amazing host who is very thoughtful and generous, and goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and at home. To our surprise we were welcomed with a delicious homemade cake. Massimiliano introduced us to the delights of local buffalo mozzarella cheese, fresh lemons from his trees on the property and local Calabria wine.
The property is very clean and provides everything you could need. It has three good size bedrooms upstairs with amazing views of mountains and an old castle. The main floor provides ample room for dining, playing board games, and spending time together. The kitchen is fully furnished, clean and functional. All your cooking essentials were provided such as salt, sugar, spices, oil, coffee, etc. We loved the espresso coffee machine and the dishwasher! The wash machine and outdoor drying rack was appreciated with a young family.
Outside is where we spent most of our time. It is set-up beautifully to relax and enjoy the surroundings. We loved the outdoor pool, ping pong and foosball table. Two different outdoor dining areas, BBQ, and a lovely covered sitting area – great spot to enjoy wine, Caprese Antipasto with fresh bread while taking in the beautiful scenery!
Santa Maria del Cedro is a short jaunt to the beach (beach toys are provided) and town for supplies. A car is definitely needed for this area of Italy – my husband drove and it was a breeze compared to the Sorrento/Amalfi coast area. Santa Maria del Cedro is an ideal location to explore Calabria; with Maratea & Sapri to the north or Dimante or Paola to the south. Massimiliano provided great advice on where to shop, things to see and do with young children. The children adored his friendly dog “Clay” who was always happy to greet us!
We were very sad to say goodbye and highly recommend La Querciaia for a family or 2-3 couples. Massimiliano went above and beyond when our daughter left behind a pair of earrings and he mailed them to us!
Thank you Massimiliano & Clay for an amazing week!!
Vi ringrazio molto per le belle parole e sono felice che vi siate trovati bene alla Querciaia. Sapere che siete stati bene è la mia più grande soddisfazione. Anche voi siete delle persone meravigliose e avete lasciato un bellissimo ricordo; spero di avervii ancora miei ospiti.
Wonderful welcome from Massimilio and a truly beautiful home
We had a wonderful stay at Massimilio's and were truly sorry to have to leave his wonderful home. The location is idyllic with very impressive views and a fantastically well equipped garden. We very much enjoyed breakfast outside, staring at the stunning views. We also found a very lovely beach south of Praia a Mare and liked discovering the region.
Massimilio is the kindest and most delicate host one could wish for, and nothing is too much trouble to make his guests have a memorable experience, including introducing them to the local products. His house is wonderfully comfortable and one feels totally at home.
Amazing house and the best host
We spend an amazing month in La Querciaia 1946 in August 2017.
The house was spotlessly clean and immaculately maintained with everything we could need for our stay. It is absolutely beautiful and tastefully furnished in country style.
The pool was great for the kids and the private garden perfect to relax in. We loved the BBQ for evening cooking and there is plenty of space for us all to eat outside. It felt very private in the garden and views of the mountains are breathtaking.
Massimiliano is simply the best host we ever met and such a nice person...He has done everything and more to make our stay memorable and special. He arranged for us to try different local produces during our stay and recommended great restaurants. He also organised a great boat trip for a day to see the caves along the beautiful coastline.
At the end of our stay we felt that we are leaving a friend.
We will miss you and Clay
