The apartment is located very conveniently in the main part of the historic town. However, as it is so central to all the bars and restaurants this does mean that it is noisy at night into the early hours.
I would highly recommend spending time in Tropea, but be next time I would ensure that I wasn’t located in the centre and that the kitchen was well stocked with kitchen utensils as eating out was very expensive and on the whole not good value for money.
We have been visiting Zambrone for 6 years now, always perched part way up the hill at different locations. This was our first time at this apartment. It is a nice comfortable apartment Closer to the bottom of the hill between Zambrone Maritime and the village of Zambrone. Part of a block of 8. The views are superbly uninterrupted over the Med across to Stromboli and Sicily. The surrounding gardens make it pleasantly secluded.
Bedding was clean and comfortable, with a spacious bathroom with shower. The kitchen living area was basic, and the fridge was on the blink, generating lots of frost and water throughout our week. The TV wasn't connected to any aerial, but hey, who needs a TV? Shared washing machine was fine.
The local contact is Francesco, very friendly and helpful, but who doesn't speak English, so lots of arm waving when most of the locks on the windows didn't work, and phone conversations were impossible.
All sounds a bit petty to mention these things, but they are easily sorted. A hire car is an absolute must, as walking everywhere would leave you exhausted, and there is nothing within easy distance.
Would we go back? Definitely, but not in high season, as there is no aircon, and it gets searingly hot June to September. Overall excellent value, and perfect for our needs.
