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.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

We visited in July 2017 and the locality was busy but not crowded. Its a security gated site so safe secure parking. The large balcony is a bonus and is the best on this site. You can't see the apartment or balcony from the pool photos but its third level with one apartment above. The balcony faces north but thats a bonus as there is shade but if you want direct sun just move out a couple of metres. The pool is excellent clean and well maintained. Its closed during mid day and early afternoon but its too hot then anyway. The complex is not over developed so its not a crowded place, relaxed and private if needed. We can highly recommend the cafe in the piazza in Zambrone, just wished we had tried it earlier in the holiday. The supermarkets at stazione di Zambrone are good and do good hot italian take aways at the deli counter. We found the MB supermarket on via Nazionale SS18 at Pizzo was best, think Aldi and Lidl. Tropea and Pizzo are great places to visit. Also worth visiting are Zungri cave dwellings and Nicoterra. For drive into cooler climes try the drive from Pizzo to Serra San Bruno in the mountains and back to Vibo Valentia. Drive to Reggio for the day and the city experience, visit the museum, its in a different class, its suberb; do the bronzes and then the rest of the museum and its cool. We did a trip to Sicily to Messina via the ferry at Villa San Giovanni. Maida is not far, if you are from London think Maida Vale, look it up on line. If we go back to the north coast of Calabria I would try and book this apartment again.
