The Villa La Buntessa nestles on a sandy bay beside the Ionian sea on the undiscovered Jasmine coast about 50 kms from Reggio Calabria The small beach estate comprising of a main house, the boat house, the barrakka and the wooden house sleeps up to 16 in comfort, set in a large garden with an orchard and traditional Italian vegetable garden behind, where you can pick your own tomatoes, basil aubergine, pepperoni, figs and pears when in season, it is always let as one unit so is an ideal getaway for either one large family perhaps with granny and in-laws or two families and friends, but is also perfect for smaller groups who like a lot of space! Totally kid friendly this house is not a posh villa but a relaxing family home.

There are plenty of out door seating areas and hammocks, table tennis and swing ball and a large blue tiled terrace overlooking the sea, as does the boathouse roof terrace, which is the perfect place for nightly cocktails with views across the whole bay

The barrakka a funky old tin barn overlooks the sea and has a wonderful romantic iron double bed and also a single bed and ceiling fan It has a shower room and a small kitchenette with fridge for servicing the outdoor shaded al fresco dining area with barbeque and a table big enough for everyone to eat together.

"The Jasmine Coast is a little known stretch of unspoilt coast between Brancaleone and Bova Marina. It includes the villages of Galati, Spropoli and Palizzi which is our local, you will meet few tourists other than Italians who love to come for the 'rustica' way of life, unchanged here, unlike almost all the rest of Italy.
The area has plenty of bars, restaurants and 'gelaterias', there are supermarkets and shops selling local produce as well as a wonderful market every Tuesday in Palizzi.
At Brancaleone there is a lively Lido with water sports and cafes, and in summer an outdoor nightclub beside the sea!
The diverse history of the region has left much behind worth visiting along the coast and in the hill towns and mountain villages including Greek temples, Roman remains, Saracen castles, Byzantine churches and much more including the not to be missed world famous Riace Bronzes from the 5th century BC which are housed in the Museo Nazionale della Magna Grecia in Reggio Calabria, also the unique Norman-Romanesque Cathedral at Gerace which is close to the town of Locri where there was once a fabulous Greek City in the Hellenic Period.
It is also fun to visit Sicily with ferries running daily from Reggio Calabria to Messina, and also to the Aeolian Islands"

Sheltered by Capo Spartivento and favoured by the proximity of Africa the
Jasmine Coast has a unique climate with approximately 326 days of sunshine a
year and  warm crystal clear waters teeming with fish.
