Situated on the edge of a small charming village, our family home is a one off architects villa set into a hillside with large pool, landscaped gardens, large patio area with outdoor BBQ, olive and almond trees. We both speak English and in addition Roberta speaks Italian and conversational French with a little Spanish also. Although this is a new listing, we are AirBnB veterans with over 170 reviews from our old house in the UK so be assured you will be most warmly welcomed here!

The space

You'll be sharing the house with Roberta, Gordon and our 2 year old boy Louis. We share the whole house with you. Unlike a regular B&B there are no restrictions on where you may go in the common areas of the house and given that we live in a rural area we place no restrictions on you in terms of use of our kitchen and facilities. We love cooking and you will find our kitchen very well stocked in terms of appliances, utensils, condiments, spices etc. Our house is at the bottom of the village and the house and garden are raised up above the road so not overlooked by any other properties. The house is set in a plot of 1500m2 and is surrounded by olive and almond trees with 3 large old pines around the pool to shelter you from the summer sun...or not in our case, we didn't come here from Scotland to sit in the shade! The pool is not heated and so can only be used in the summer months unless you are feeling very brave. The house is a one off 70's villa, built on a hill which makes for a very beautiful and interesting space but for this reason is not suitable for those with limited mobility. The guest room does not have en-suite and you will share the bathroom/toilet with us however we have our own shower room and there is a second toilet in the living area. The house has a very large semi-open plan living dining area plus a lovely mezzanine level overlooking the living room...also please note that we have a lovely cat.

Guest access

Other things to note

The house is built on a hill and will not suit those with limited mobility.

We have a cat who is very territorial and can be aggressive towards other animals but very sweet to people. We do not accept other animals in the house .

The host will welcome you and from then on you will move around the house as if you lived there. Louis, their 1yr old enjoys having visitors too. Easy to find.

Cute house in a calm small village. Roberta was very nice and available with us. Both interior and exterior of the house are beautiful. Very good quality to price ratio.

The stay has been a real pleasure, in a charming house with a nice swimming pool, beautiful place around Calce, deeply quiet. Dinner with a sicilian touch, and a good breakfast. Roberta has demonstrated being a great host. Thank you!

Roberta and Gordon have a lovely house in a beautiful spot! They were the most generous and welcoming hosts and put out a tremendous spread for breakfast. We loved meeting and staying with them. If we are ever in their area again, we would love to come back. I highly recommend staying here!!

Roberta & Gordon were very friendly and always in touch. Unfortunately a last minute change of plans force me to skip my trip to their home but they were quite opened and understood the situation. Hopefully a new time we will spend some nights in their home,

Complètement charmés par la beauté des lieux. La maison est un havre de paix pour les adultes comme pour les enfants et le village de Calce est adorable. Roberta était aux petits soins pour nous et Louis, son fils l'était avec nos enfants !! Nous avons vraiment eu un coup de cœur pour cet endroit nous qui avons 2 enfants en bas âges (3 mois et 2 ans). Nous reviendrons c'est sur !!!!! Encore merci :)

Roberta And Gordon User Profile

We are Roberta and Gordon, early to mid 30's and our 1 year old son, Louis. 50% Scottish, 50% Italian. We were previously hosts in Glasgow, Scotland with almost 170 excellent reviews which you can read here from hosting 2 bedrooms in our old tenement flat. We love music (especially jazz, alternative/indie), fine dining(in or out), travelling, photography, reading, independent cinema, sitting in front of a toasty log fire with a bottle of wine.
We can safely say that we are now definitely veterans of AirBnB both as hosts and as guests and we will endeavour to make you feel very welcome indeed.
