Carrie Morris purchased this apartment in 2011
Italy has always been our favourite holiday destination and when we visited Calbria we fell in love with its rustic charm. The local town of Pizzo is a traditional town in a relatively unspoilt area. The property contrasts this with its modern decor and excellent facilities. Ideal for holidaymakers young and old.
I would just like to say we had a wonderful holiday. We all enjoyed it so much. Your apartment is fabulous and the roof terrace just lovely. The complex is really nice too, I loved all the flowering trees and bushes, we even found a lime tree amongst them all, and we all loved the pools (where we practically spend 9.30am to 7pm with a 90 min lunch break, for most days of the holiday). The beach was really good too and a bonus that it had umbrellas and sunbeds. We did some snorkelling which was fun. We also had a couple of trips to Pizzo and a couple of lunches and their famous ice creams which were really really delicious. The beach there is good too where we had a swim and a snorkel. The walk up and down from the beach to the town is great, just how I would expect Italy to look like.
Thank you for letting us stay in your apartment. You have a really fabulous place and it makes a great family holiday. We all did have such a brilliant time. Thank you.
A beautiful, well kept apartment within an exceptionally well maintained private complex. The apartment is immaculately clean, beautifully furnished and fully equipped with modern appliances. The beds are probably the most comfortable we have ever slept in! The roof terrace is a fantastic leisure space for both sunbathing and dining. A choice of two very clean and inviting swimming pools and a quiet private beach are both within easy walking distance. We would totally recommend trips out to Pizzo, Tropea and Filadelfia. The description of the accommodation is entirely accurate but in reality the quality of the apartment exceeds this. The owners, Dave and Carrie, were extremely helpful and ensured a fantastic and trouble free stay. A truly exceptional holiday: one which we hope to repeat soon! We would highly recommend to others.
We loved the apartment, especially the roof terrace which is great for sunbathing in the daytime and watching the stars with a bottle of wine in the evening. The kitchen is well appointed, if you want to cook there's everything you need. Bedrooms stay a comfortable temperature due to the air conditioning (which is quiet). No kids in our party this time but my granddaughters would enjoy the playground, pools and waterslide. The beach is lovely, just a stroll along a forest path and then miles of unspoiled white sand. All in all a great destination if you want to relax and a perfect base if you want to explore southern Italy.
Sehr schönes Apartment / Penthouse in einem ruhigen gut ausgebautem Resort mit gepflegten Pools und kurzem Fußweg zum Strand.
Wir haben die Zeit sehr genossen, die Anlage bietet alles für einen ruhigen Familienurlaub.
Das Objekt ist sehr gepflegt und das Property Management sehr Aufmerksam und jeder Zeit erreichbar.
Supermärkte und Restaurants sind in 5-10 min zu erreichen, direkt vor der Anlage ist eine Tankstelle mit guten Preisen, auch ein kleiner Tante Emma Laden mit Früchten, Käse, Wurst, Pasta und Brot, ist nur 2 min entfernt.
In 10 min erreicht man gute Restaurants, wir haben 3 direkt am Meer gefunden, die Abends tollen Service bieten und Tagesfänge servieren. Im Resort selbst kann man Mittags und Abends im kleinen Restaurant essen, falls man die Anlage nicht verlassen will.
Von Tropea werden Tagesausflüge nach Messina und Stromboli angeboten, die wir aber nicht nutzten.
Wir fanden Strand, Pools und gute Restaurants, und können das Objekt nur empfehlen, die Bilder geben die Realität wieder;
