Web Directories - Our Competitors

  • A lot of your time is wasted filling out forms and waiting for replies from multiple vacation rental owners. Many busy owners never reply.
  • The price shown always changes, you have to calculate it yourself and often changes once you communicate with the owner.
  • Most owners do not take the time to provide complete information on listings, so you waste time having to ask questions and wait for responses.
  • In a nutshell, "Web Directories" are cumbersome and time consuming, and if you have a problem, you are on your own.

Read no further if you'd rather a holiday in a soulless luxury international hotel found in every city of the world.
But if you seek a genuine experience of life in an ancient village where the main piazza is overlooked by the gracious church and coffee drinking, card playing older gentlemen sit and greet you, then come to Santa Domenica Talao. This cosy little town is perched at the edge of the majestic Pollino mountains with sweeping views to the coast which is only a 10 minute drive (or take one of the 4 daily buses). SDT has several cafes, restaurant, hairdresser, doctor, chemist, giftshop, florist, hardware/everything, two grocery shops, shoeshop, butcher/deli. There's even a whitegoods store where deliveries AND installation is free. Imagine 3 burley men manhandling a washing machine into our 'laundry', installing it, waiting through a washing cycle to see it was running correctly and then cleaning the floor and the packaging. All free. That's what Domenicani are like.
Go horse trekking, rafting, Karting, fishing, skiing, swimming, hiking....Many less than 1/2 hour away. The scenery is spectacular on the deserted mountain roads, but the busy coast is where the action is if that is what you want. Only a few hours from Amalfi too.
The coast drive is spectacular. Visit the charming towns like Diamante with it's murals, Belvedere, Praia a Mare.... Maratea with it's huge angel statue, up in the clouds...It's not even far to Sicily or the absolutely stunning Aolian Islands. Try the terrifying climb up smoking Stromboli.
But inland is another story. Tiny hilltowns tucked away from prying eyes, dating back centuries, dotted on the winding road which takes you to the Romito Caves. These caves are Neolithic, you can see the graves, skeletons and way of life, all within a fingertip. The guided tour is great, although only in Italian. AND NO CROWDS!! However, August, the European holiday season, can be another matter, there may even be up to five people milling around.
And because Santa Domenica Talao is on the 'ankle' of the boot of Italy, it's quite narrow, so reaching the eastern seaboard is quite easy.
After a good day touring, return to our little village. Enjoy dinner at one of the restaurants, or laze the evening away on the terrace watching the sea turn dark and the sky fill with stars. And the view, the clean, clear air and the tiny wine prices will all take your breath away!
