If you want peace and quiet and to totally relax in a beautiful part of southern Italy, then this is the place to stay. The apartment, pool and grounds are all immaculate. The apartment’s terrace with the stunning sea view became a regular spot for us for breakfast, laying on the loungers in the afternoon, and for drinks while we watched the most incredible sunsets. The AC is also fantastic, as are the showers! We had a couple of minor gripes during our stay, mainly that there were no movable pool loungers that we could take to the pool or beach (just giant white plastic ones – too heavy!), we also found the beds very hard & uncomfortable and there was no hairdryer. The recycling system is also like nothing you have ever experienced – 6 types with different collection days/types of bags/bins with the correct barcodes on them. The residents are HOT on this topic and we were asked many, many times (including during early morning and late night knocks on our door) if we were doing it correctly! There is also no WIFI (our fault for not spotting that it wasn’t listed, but we just assumed that everywhere you go now has WIFI). The ‘welcome pack’ doesn’t give you any really useful info beyond a local history lesson – here’s just a few tips that may be handy: A taxi to Tropea will cost €15 each way for a 10 min journey. It’s the same to Pizzo, even though that journey is longer; If you come out of the top gate and turn left you will reach Zambrone town. It’s a 45 min walk up hill most of the way, but it has a very cute little piazza + nice restaurant, market & pharmacy. There’s a fish restaurant along the way to the town that is great; Go to the local pizza place (10 min walk - left and left again out of the top gate) for lunch - it’s a pretty scary walk in the pitch black at night! There’s an amazing restaurant called La Giara about 5 mins drive from the apartment – fantastic views for sunset, beautiful food, so reasonable– the best lasagna ever! Ask for a key for the bottom gate if you’re on foot - saves you climbing up a massive hill every day; Best spaghetti vongole of your life at Lido Azzurro in Tropea; Go to Pepe Nero in Pizzo for a beautiful seafood dinner. Overall we had an absolutely brilliant holiday & would recommend staying here to anyone who wants to get away from it all & relax. We hope this helps future guests get the most out of their stay + management company improve a few things that would make this apartment a full 5/5 experience
Lovely quiet area with local restaurants and very close to the beach, right at the edge of the town. The apartment was small but well equipped and spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed. Personal touches like the water and bowl of fruit were most welcome. Pasquale was lovely and very helpful suggesting events that were taking place while we were there. A beach umbrella was very welcome.
