Not everyone knows the village of Joppolo, but for those who had the good fortune to visit these areas, the mind will recall the remembrance of the small Calabrian villages perched on hills overlooking the blue sea. Caroniti, Coccorinello, Coccorino, Monte Poro are the four villages that together make up the municipality of Joppolo, suspended halfway between the hills and the sea and surrounded by nature that allows one to live the typical experiences of the Calabrian culture.
Leaving the main road at the beginning of the village of Coccorino and after climbing a narrow street for a few hundred meters, the villa appears surrounded by prickly pears and green vegetation with its modern architecture, fitting perfectly in the surrounding environment creating a picture of perfect harmony.
The house is built on one floor: from the entrance one enters directly into the day area, which is composed of the kitchen and the living space and enhanced by two large patio doors leading outside, where part of the garden is protected by the pergola.
The sleeping area consists of three bedrooms, two doubles and a single. From both the doubles one can exit to the garden, while the single room does not dispose of this luxury but compensates well with its large bright window. The apartment also has two bathrooms: one is directly connected to one of the rooms and the other is located in the hallway of the sleeping area. Both are equipped with a ceiling window which dispose of a motorized opening mechanism. On the right side of the house an annexe with independent access is found. It consists of a large room with a bathroom where the current owner has obtained a tavern, but given the amount of space one could think of a musical studio, a workshop or overall a laboratory room for creative experiments.
Adjacent to the annexe is a spacious garage, where in addition to a car one could install a shelf area perfect for storing small tools and everything necessary for the care of the garden. The interior of the house is very well kept and also the materials used are of good quality. Each room has been painted with pastel colours such as blue, pink, yellow-green, that together with the in detail designed furnishings create a pleasant, warm and welcoming atmosphere.
One of the strongest pieces of the villa is the terrace, which is built on top of the roof and can be reached either by an external staircase or directly from the garden. The landscape is magnificent: in front there is the volcano island of Stromboli – which also happens to be perfectly in the west of the house, allowing for stunning sunsets behing the island. To the left one can see another volcano, namely mount Etna of Sicily. Below and around: the port city of Tropea the countryside and perfectly aligned trees: an ideal place for building a pool, having a drink with a friend and chatting about personal dreams and ideas.
Perhaps among the most the name of Joppolo does not raise particular emotions, but it is enough to mentioned Tropea or Capo Vaticano to understand the quality of the area in which the villa is located. An endless choice of beaches, coves and small gulf overlooking the crystal blue sea, reached in a few minutes, where holidays and everyday life become magic.
