PERFETTO!!!!

5 of 5
Per il 5° anno consecutivo siamo tornati in questo appartamento! Tutto perfetto come sempre. Quest'anno abbiamo goduto di una magnifica tenda da sole che ci ha permesso di pranzare e cenare all'aria aperta. E il giardino si è arricchito di molte piante che ci hanno regalato ombra e frescura. La proprietaria è molto cortese. Che dire...... siamo affezionatissimi.

Very close to pool and great roof terrace!

5 of 5
Great apartment, good space and facilities. We really valued the air conditioning in the lounge/kitchen area and good fans in the bedrooms. The roof terrace doubles the living space, with half sunny and half shaded all day. 2 minute walk to a nice pool with sunbeds and parasols and 10 minute walk to the very quiet beach with loads of sunbeds and parasols. We drove up into the hills to a High Ropes centre, hired sea pedalos just 5 mins away, and drove along the coast to Pizzo and Tropea, which are both full of character. We felt we saw 'Italy' rather than a touristy resort area, which was nice. We watched some amazing sunsets over the sea :-) The owner, James, was very helpful with my questions in the lead-up to going.
