Nice place

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is located in a complex but compared to the other apartments it is located in just the right spot for some amazing sunsets. We sat on the balcony sipping wine most evenings as the sun went down.

The host is the best and took very good care of us before and during our stay.

We recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in Calabria.

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our two week stay at Casa Sash. It was a great vacation and a great apartment. Casa Sash is clean, modern and has a wonderful terrace. We enjoyed the stunning view and outdoor living. Kitchen is well stocked. It has a nice pool area with plenty of lounges and umbrellas.

It's a short walk to fruit and veggie stands, a larger grocery store, meat markets and many ice cream and coffee bars. I will miss my morning walk for cappuccino and a delicious fresh sweet.

If you want to have a relaxing vacation and really experience how the southern Italians live, this is a good choice. We rented a car and travelled all over southern Italy and Sicily with Casa Sash as our base, it was perfect.

I would definitely stay at Casa Sash again.

Thank you Sash, you are a very helpful and gracious host.

We didn't know much about Calabria when we planned our trip but the host was very helpful in getting us not only a really nice apartment but also tips on what we can do while on vacation.

The small beach in the marina and the swimming pool at the complex were really good options during our stay and we were able to enjoy both options.

The apartment, the views are breathtaking, especially the sunsets with a glass of wine on the balcony.

The host was very responsive and we would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking to visit Calabria in the future.

This is a very nice and clean apartment that is close to everything.

There is a private beach within 5min of the apartment in the marina that is really nice to hangout.

The host is very helpful and knows a lot about Calabria and Italy.

We would stay at this apartment again on our next visit.

Nice place for a summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for our summer vacation with our children.

This is a very nice apartment and offered more than what we needed for our trip to southern Italy.

We really enjoyed relaxing on the balcony having wine overlooking Stromboli, while the children loved the Hammock.

The host arranged everything for us before our trip.

We highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting the region.

Lovely place near the sea

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four and "Casa Sash" was just the place for us to spend our vacation in Calabria. The apartment has all the amenities one could ask for including amazing views of Stromboli from its balcony.

We really enjoyed spending time on the balcony in the evening while overlooking Stromboli and beautiful sunsets night after night. It is priceless!

The owner is fantastic and has so much knowledge about Calabria and most of Italy for that matter.

Calabria has so much to see and we will be sure to visit again in the near future. We look forward to staying at this apartment again on our next trip.

The town of Pizzo is a charming fishing town with a network of narrow lanes and historic buildings overflowing with lively festivals, food stalls, food tasting and music. Pizzo has a fantastic range of facilities and activities with excellent inexpensive restaurants, shops and bars for you to sample. The town is renowned for its hand made ice cream, Tartufo. Relax at the outdoor tables in the Piazza della Republica taking in the wonderful sights and sounds while enjoying the sunshine and a gelato.

In Pizzo local attractions such as Castello Murat (built in the 15th century) and Chiesetta di Piedigrotta (one of the most visited attractions in Calabria) make this small town such a jewel in all of Calabria.

The Aeolian Islands (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) are a famous attraction in Calabria and one of the islands is Stromboli, off the shores of Pizzo which has an active volcano. Experience hot mud baths or hike up to Vulcano and Stromboli - both are amazing at night.
