About the property

La casa è grande e molto comoda per 6 persone con 3 camere da letto e 3 bagni.

L'appartamento ha oltre le camere, numerose stanze. un ampio ingresso, una grande sala da pranzo, uno studio, un salotto per giocare a carte e uno per la televisione e il lDVD.La sala da pranzo comunica con la cucina, non grande ma comoda. Ogni camera ha armadi spaziosi, 2 camere hanno il letto matrimoniale e una ha due letti singoli. Ci sono grandi balconi tipici dell'Italia de Sud e un terrazzo davanti al salotto più grande.
In casa si dispone di una lavatrice, attualmente non c'è la lavastoviglie ma potrebbe essere aggiunta. Ma realmente la vita si svolge spesso fuori, sul mare dove è possibile mangiare sia con qualche panino o al ristorante del bagno, e la sera è molto piacevole mangiare nei diversi ristoranti e pizzerie del paese. La casa si trova in una piazza dove ci sono ristoranti e pizzerie, che però non danno fastidio perché i rumori non arrivano. Inoltre dalla piazza partono le scale che vanno al porto e al mare. Le spiagge sono numerose, si trovano alla destra e alla sinistra del porto, facilmente raggiungibili anche a piedi. La casa non ha il riscaldamento, ma fino a novembre spesso si fanno i bagni.. La casa si trova nel centro storico e non è permesso entrare con l'auto. Il parcheggio si trova a circa 500 metri ed è permesso entrare per il carico e scarico dei bagagli ma è necessario il giorno dopo l'arrivo andare dai vigili. Comunque all'arrivo si può avere un taxi, ma a pagamento. In agosto è meno bello perché ci sono troppi turisti che affollano le spiagge e il paese, ma ad es. in settembre si tiene il festival del blues e la cittadina vive un'atmosfera di grande allegria con musicisti che arrivano da tutto il mondo e suonano nelle piazze davanti ai caffè e ai ristoranti.

About Simonetta Vannucchi

I am the wife of the owner of the property. The House is very old and has been

inherited from my husband because it is the family home for hundreds of years. We always went to when we got engaged back in 1972; first alone and then with our children, which called their friends and we our parents. Until last year I spent June and September by inviting friends with me who were always delighted to come.

In 2006 renovations and improvements have been made. The House has An autoclave to make up for any shortage of water in summer. It is not heated but until November in Calabria you are fine and sometimes continues to bathe in the sea when the season is serena. My husband and I live in Florence and we are retired. I was a professor at the University of Florence where I was teaching pathology. He was a lawyer.

Why Simonetta Vannucchi chose Tropea

Unfortunately I can no longer use them as much as I'd like because my husband isn't well. My sons work and just use it for a few weeks in August. That's why I decided to offer it on Homelidays. In Tropea a Lady of my confidence you can occupy the reception of guests and would also be available to make food or cleaning fee (the price is 7 euros per hour). She's a lovely person and I highly recommend.

What makes this apartment unique

I really love this House. I spent wonderful holiday periods. A long time ago in Tropea there was none. Then in forty years many things have changed. She became a seaside resort famous and highly frequented by foreigners and Italians. Our House has the prerogative to be downtown, close to all amenities but is in a square that is very large and quieter than the rest of the city. From the large balconies you see a beautiful old chapel where when the Moon lives an atmosphere magical. From one of the Windows you can see the sea and in this way you can know if is calm or you are waving.

Sometimes in the evening under the House organize a show, but at midnight

everything is getting done. If you come by car you need a permission to access

that is given by the vigilant, because the historic centre is closed to traffic.

Beautiful apartment in Old Tropea

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is absolutely stunning and just what we were looking for, a traditional Italian apartment. It is a very spacious and airy apartment, with floor to ceiling windows. The owner is incredibly accommodating and has a local lady who is available should you need any help.

Being situated in Old Tropea meant that we were in the heart of the town- all amenities are in close walking distance or a short drive.

Overall we had a really enjoyable holiday in Tropea.

Owner's Response: Grazie della vostra opinione positiva sulla mia casa. Tropea è bellissima e la si gode a pieno sopratutto nelle stagioni primaverili e autunnali quando la folla dei turisti non c'è. Perciò ritornate in quei periodi. Distinti saluti Simonetta

Tropea is a country with ancient origins. It is a very special country, because it has always been inhabited by noble families who built beautiful buildings with majestic portals and beautiful courtyards. It was a bishop's seat and has Romanesque and Baroque churches. It is overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea in front of the Aeolian Islands, all of which are visible in the clear sunny days. Almost always in the sea you can see the island of Stromboli, the volcano of the Aeolian islands still active with his plume of smoke, where the sun sets creating visions really striking. Tropea is a town very much alive, in the old town there are bars, pizzerias and restaurants, souvenir shops and charming cafes where to have a drink or breakfast seated is really nice. There are more than a supermarket and shops specializing in items from the sea and sports; the hospital is just outside the village near the police station. It has a railway station

from where frequent trains to nearby towns such as Pizzo Calabro (delightful town famous because Murat was killed and why they make a delicious ice cream called "tartufo di Pizzo" (which incidentally you can also find in Tropea), or Ricadi neighboring country Capo Vaticano, a magical place where you can enjoy a spectacular panorama with the two volcanoes Etna and Stromboli often visible simultaneously. From Tropea you might enjoy going to the beautiful

Sanctuary of Serra S. Bruno, surrounded by an ancient forest.

Or from the port to embark on a tourist ship that will go around the Aeolian Islands, where you can admire "the lava of Fire" (the lava flow from the mouths of Stromboli down to the sea) and return to Tropea at night enjoying the view of the town all lit up on its ancient monuments with an entry port in truly spectacular.

But the beauty of Tropea is not limited in its monuments, churches and palaces. And 'the capital of the so-called "Costa Viola", so called for the color of the sea is breathtaking, when time is of course clear and the sea calm. Water transparency is unequaled and top of the cliff, all'affaccio the bay, you will see over the shrine of Our Lady of the Island's feet who is taking a bath in the sea.
