About this listing

Located between the enchanting coastal resorts of Tropea and Pizzo in southern Italy, our apartment provides the ideal base for a holiday of sunshine, diving, fishing, hiking, or relaxing with a glass of wine and a delicious meal overlooking the sea.

The space

Our apartment is beautifully furnished with a well-equipped kitchen area, a balcony overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea where you can watch the sunset and a fabulous swimming pool. It is set in a small gated development of 24 apartments and 11 villas in the rugged hills of Calabria, in an undiscovered area of outstanding natural beauty between the medieval towns of Tropea and Pizzo.

Guest access

Guests can use all the facilities of our home; these include a bedroom with all linen provided, shower room with bidet and all towels provided, a well-furnished living room with a sofa bed and dining furniture, a balcony with chairs and table and the use of a lovely shared swimming pool between June and the end of September. There is parking on site and well-stocked gardens of olives, palms,fig trees and beautiful Mediterranean flowers.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to talk to our guests online or by phone, but the apartment is for our holiday use too, so we won't be there when you are! We have a management company who will provide a key, directions and local advice and manage any queries you might have during your stay.

Other things to note

Our apartment is on one level on the first floor, but is reached by an external staircase.
We can accommodate two people in the bedroom and another two on a very comfortable sofa bed, with all linen and towels provided. We also have a high chair, some babyproof plates and a travel cot, with sheets.

An incredible experience in an amazing part of Italy! The area is secluded and safe, the pool is refreshing, two air conditioning units ensure great comfort and the view from the balcony is mesmerizing. Communication with Viv was amazing as was the availability of Paul and Lorraine who dealt with check in, etc, while we were there. The apartment is very well furnished, just take care of buying groceries/perishables, as the refrigerator is adequate but small. The area itself is nice with a free beach very close by in Zambrone, or an 11 minute drive brings you to the free beach area of Tropea, near the landmark church high on a cliff. There were plenty of fruit and vegetable vendors along the main road when we were there in July/August...watermelons the size of a school aged child!! You will not be disappointed, this is probably one of the best airbnb values out there as you get so much more than what you are paying for.

Great appartment, perfect for 2 people. You do need a car, otherwise you are quite stuck. The pool and the neighbors are super nice, and the view also!

We stayed with our 1 year old in early October. Weather was still fairly good to catch a few beach days. Apartment is set up nicely if you have a little one. High chair play pen, etc. were helpful. Beautiful views of the sea from the balcony. Defiantly need a car to get around. The owner was very nice to deal with and quick to reply with any questions or concerns.

This is one of the most amazing places we have ever stayed. Spectacular views of the sea and mountains from the balcony of the apartment. 10 meters to the exquisite swimming pool, which is quiet almost all the time. We had the wonderful pleasure of seeing the active volcano stromboli one of the nights. Great place for star gazing, lazing and recharging batteries. Apartment so well stocked with equipment. .you could even bake cakes if you could shake yourself sufficiently from the relaxed state you enter. Lots of books and DVDs (we never turned on the tv.. no need). There was also lots of beach toys for children and also childrens books. Don't be put off by the sofa bed - it's incredibly comfy and quick and easy to pull out. It dosent require the linen to be removed and re-made daily, it all just folds away with ease. Local beaches are amazing, clear, clean water. We paid 3 euro for parking only on 2 days (out of 18). Coffee and ice cream on the beach front only 1 euro each! Stunning nearby towns of Trope, Pizza and Vibo Valence well worth a visit. Great castle in Vibo Valence well worth visiting. .only 2 euro admission. We would definitely recommend having a car, although some of the neighbours in the beautiful quiet apartment complex managed without one. Local restaurants were wonderful. . Serving all local produce at really reasonable prices. Very friendly staff everywhere. Viv was terrific to work withfrom the 1st email we sent.. very quick to reply and always polite, warm and friendly. Would we go again... definitely! ! Even our mid teen daughter would love to return. We stayed 18 nights, and had no problem filling our time. It's really difficult to do this place justice in a written description. . It has to be experienced! !

It is so gratifying to hear that our guests love our apartment and its location as much as we do! We never tire of exploring new places and trying different restaurants and I'm sure you would enjoy doing the same. We are delighted that you had such a good holiday and would love to host you and your family again.

The apartment is great, comfortable and lovely. We didn't miss anything and especially the pool with the view on the ocean is awesome. The key transfer in Pizzo was quite easy and uncomplicated. And at the same time you can also try the wellknown Tartoufo-icecream in the centre of Pizzo. In the middle of september, the most tourists in this area are gone and it's pretty quiet but anyhow you find enough possibilites for good calabrian food and the Italians have been always helpful. So perfect for a relaxing and nice holiday in the south of Italy.

This is truly a lovely apartment with everything as described by the owner form contents to views and especially the (URL HIDDEN) husband particularly liked the fresh coffee making machine and my son thought the bed settee was extremely comfy and easy to use.Its great having the balcony in shade all day to getup of the hot sun when needed and the sunbeams to use when you don't!It is a very relaxing and quiet place to go on holiday and the English owners there are helpful to. Viv is also really helpful and friendly at answering questions as are Paul and Lorraine who you deal with in Italy. This area of Italy is quiet with little wifi, few ATM's etc, long lunches and siesta times ( you cannot use the pool at these time) so relax and enjoy.

We are a retired couple who enjoy travelling and meeting new people. We are trying to visit other parts of the world (although southern Italy keeps calling us back!) to experience different cultures and - very important to us - different cuisine! We enjoy our family, our dogs,our garden, eating out, reading, and going to see live music. All our reviewsare excellent; we are delighted to have had so many happy guests.
