We would love you to experience our beautiful holiday townhouse + studio (130 sqm) in the center of historic Pizzo. Enjoy the spectacular sea view from your 2 private terraces and balcony. The house includes 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and much much more!

The space

This house is located in the historical center of the beautiful sea town of Pizzo. Guests can find their way through its small streets to the marina and Pizzo beach in a mere 10 minute walk. In five minutes you reach the main piazza on foot, with its many restaurants, bars and little shops. Taste the local delicacy Tartufo ice cream at Bar Dante!

Guest access

The guests will have access to balconies and two terraces, one small terrace and a 25 sqm terrace. Wifi and Internet are free. You can even have our local caretaker Cathy cook for you! Don't be shy, ask her about the service.

Interaction with guests

My name is Nadette and I manage our family house. I will be in touch with you through email. Our lovely caretaker Cathy, who is local to Pizzo but speaks English very well, will make sure the house is clean, the beds are made and will take care of any needs you may have. Cathy will handle the check in and check out.

Other things to note

The house has two separate entrances and a bathroom and kitchen on each floor. It makes this house especially suitable for several guests who want to stay together, but enjoy their privacy too.
If you stay with more then 2 persons we charge euro 17,- per person per day extra. The minimum stay at the house is 5 nights. Children up to the age of 12 stay free of charge!

This is a non-smoking house. But with the weather in Pizzo you should have no problem if you are a smoker. There are balconies adjacent to the kitchen/living room and there is a big terrace upstairs. plenty of space for the smokers amongst us! Pets are not allowed, so sorry, but that is too much of a risk. I am asked to fill in what is expected of the guest. Well, nothing really, just the normal stuff: take care of our lovely house with care and enjoy it as much as we do!
The minimum stay at the house is 3 nights.

This home is amazing. The location in Pizzo is perfect, a short walk to the Piazza & beach. The property has the most wonderful views from its balconies & terrace, it made our stay enchanted. Kathy met us on arrival & was on hand should we have needed her. We found the home immaculate & ready for us to enjoy the experience straight away. Pizzo is a lovely little city with very friendly local residents & traders. I highly recommend Nanette's home for a perfect Pizzo holiday.

Lots of contact before visit. All questions answered and with Cathy near by we knew it was going to be a happy trouble free visit. It is as described both hidden and a treasure. It should be said that to get to it there are steps down from main road or up from town. Having said that it meant stunning views from every corner. The property looks traditional but inside is modern and efficient. We really hope to revisit. As the upstairs was more like a studio it means that combinations of family, friends and different ages can be easily accommodated. Again we really loved it.

We all really enjoyed our stay in Pizzo. The scenery, the buildings and architecture are wonderful, likewise the surrounding towns and countryside although we didn't give ourselves nearly enough time to explore properly. Another visit is needed! The apartment was delightful and watching the sunset from the terrace in the evening with the swallows dipping and diving was just beautiful. Carol, the manager, was especially helpful and friendly.

This is my first bad Air BnB experience. The exchange is based on trust. I trust that I am paying for what is described on the website. Nadette broke trust in the numerous ways I have described. It has made me think twice about using Air BnB in the future as there is little you can do if things are not as described. The local caretaker was nice but unhelpful. Nadette sold her spot on a garden that was not only a mess but locked! We just decided to enjoy the area despite the accomodations.

Response from Nadette:
Honestly, we have never had this kind off response before, I believe for good reason. I suggest any guests that have any doubts at all to check out previous responses over the years. Rosann arrived as the first guest of the season. Some issues mentioned I would like to address: the garden was being cared for, which is why there was a bag with leaves in it. The house is not 'sold' on the garden; only two of the 35 pictures on the site are of the garden. Being the first guest in the season means the house can be a little damp, which is why we made up the two double beds in both other rooms and not in the little side room Rosann seems to be referring to. There are two balconies and a big terrace. Unfortunately a key was missing to the smallest third balcony, which has been replaced. There is no picture of that balcony in the listing. We have never had mice in the house. Trust is crucial and should go both ways. It is a shame Rosann did not enjoy a place that is so loved by everyone who stays there.

We enjoyed our visit in Pizzo very much Martijn 's place was spacious, clean and well appointed. A 5min walk to city centre, with nice shops and cafes. Calabria coast is truly magnificent, and the people are very friendly. Would definitely come back.

This hidden treasure is exactly what it is! Such a beautiful view from the balcony. The apartment was clean and made us feel like we were at home. Carmella greeted us and showed us to the apartment and saw us a few times in the local piazza - a very nice feeling to know someone in the town when you are so far away from home! The apartment has been renovated and has many modern features. It was a short walk to the piazza which had many cafes & restaurants.

Warm regards, Nadette.
