no mosquitos cos property was high up from sea lev.good local shops.great beaches.fantastic holiday!four kids(all teenagers)and two parents struggled a bit with the sleeping arrangements(sofa bed for two of 'em in main living room),as property kept tripping out the electric if exceeded the max. 3.3kW power(box outside).So,don't put on the washer and two air con units at once,for example.with three rooms used for sleeping and a heatwave the 3 aircon units had to be shared/swapped around.we managed better,once Lorraine and Paul explained the intricae of air con.Agents were fantastically helpful,as was having a washing machine,too!Lovely views,lovely pool(nb:do not use the loungers by the pool;they are private & left by other apartment/condo owners/renters).Quiet time(SHUT)in pool 'tween 2-4.30pm & after 8pm.RULES=NO lilos/balls/splashing/diving etc.allowed at ANY time = made for a civilised relaxed atmosphere,albeit a bit restrictive for teenagers,there is after all the beaches for these sorts of activities.Local pizzeria accessible on foot and both hospitable and cheap with great choice of tasty fresh food (coperti included@1euro per head-so tip only if impressed like we did/were).Locally the sandy beach at Zambrone train station was accessible 'cross the track;rear of gelato/cafe concession,was bang-on!Down the earth track/trod starting at the RHS as you look toward the sea.Lots of jumping/diving & cliff scrambling to LHS of free public spiaggio paradiso del sub beach;from the lion rock and beyond(LHS)toward zambrone main(marina)beach.to the RHS exists a 'camping village' chalet-park and dive centre which has a private dusty road with restaurant (which accesses main road up steep&narrow-watch out for camper vans/mobile homes-'private' road).From the bottom of Paulo Borsellini?road(condo/apartments community)virtually directly opposite & slightly right(20 yards)is a skinny cliff trod which winds down to a stony beach under the train tracks(check out google maps-earth views).very private & there are various slabs of rock in sea left & right to dive/jump off.great nature/sea life to be seen!we saw hawks/mantis(insect)/rays/wrasse/mullet/lizards & there are a pair of eagles locally which have had offspring(last 5 years-repopulating the coast).a magnificent landscape marred by the litter EVERYWHERE people travel to/fro.Tropea is like st.ives:trad archit. but tacky&shite due to tourism.good beach tho.saint irene rock=ace!Yr sunsets fro patio&pool tops!

BEAUTIFUL apartment, HIGHLY RECOMMEND

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a really quiet and relaxing complex, we found the neighbours absolutely lovely and very helpful. We thought Zambrone, Tropea and Pizzo were absolutely stunning and found a secluded beach just past the station where we went to every day. There is a local pizzeria restaurant just a 5 minute walk behind the complex run by a lovely friendly family and the pizza was so delicious.

I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone who is looking for a spot in a rustic and beautiful part of Italy. It is clean and beautifully decorated, the balcony has the best view of the whole complex where you get the sun all day, with some stunning sunsets and the pool was perfect. They provide everything you need for cooking at home as well as lovely furniture and chairs to take to the pool or the beach. The local food is really something else and we cant wait to go back there!!

PERFECT HOLIDAY APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5

we stayed at this property last month for 2 weeks and are back refreshed and relaxed. Firstly i would like to mention the team at calabrian services, they made our booking and stay seamlessly easy. they were attentive on hand all holiday and provided us with all the help and advice needed when you go to a new holiday location.

This apartment is exactly as you see it in the photos, it is clean, fresh and tidy, very homely and the main thing is that everything works!! we were a family of 4 it was a great size for us but you could easily and comfortably fit 6 in here.

We used the pool almost every day but we also went to the amazing beaches nearby. We snorkelled in the clearest water I have ever seen.

Most evenings we sat and watched the incredible sun sets from that balcony, breathtaking. In fact the balcony, the position of the apartment and the views simply take your breath away.

The nearby restaurants were so very cheap! but the food amazing all from local produce everything so fresh and tasty, not to mention the vino locali....cheap and delicious.

we would recommend this apartment and indeed this small attractive complex.

Thank you very much!

Wonderful apartment with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful holiday. My wife and I visited for 10 days in July. Agents easily contactable and easy to talk to. It seemed they could not do enough for us.The apartment was bright, clean and airy with everything we needed. The aircon worked perfectly well and was easy to operate, the pool was easily accessible and clean. The local area had everything we would ever need, and Tropea is a wonderful town to visit and eat at. Will be staying here again very soon I hope. :) Would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Our Fabulous Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a week at this fantastic apartment which was highly recommended to us by a previous guest.

We were met by Lorraine and Paul who manage the apartment and made us very welcome.

The apartment is stunning and immaculate, and obviously well maintained. Sam's description is perfect.

We spent a fair amount of time at the apartment, it is clear lot of thought has gone into making you feel at home.

We made good use of the pool, and spent some wonderful evenings on the balcony watching the stunning sunset.........it became part of our day.

The air conditioning was a very welcome asset and was available in each room catering again for all our individual needs.

We hired a car and had some wonderful days out in Tropea, and Piazzio, we visited many of the beaches near by and enjoyed some wonderful pizza and ice cream.

From Tropea it is possible to get a boat trip over to Stromboli which we could see on the horizon most days...........we chose the Stromboli by night trip, which was spectacular.

Having had such wonderful weather and such an enjoyable relaxing time we would love to come back and get some more of that amazing sunset!!! Thank you.

Location

Car: recommended

Zambrone town offers every amenity and has a traditional piazza, bars, pizzeria, fresh meat from the local butcher, fresh fish delivered every day. Just at the entrance to the Amalfi complex you will find a local vegetable supplier, where you can purchase all locally grown fruit and vegetables and buy a large bottle of home made red wine for only €2.50 Fresh cheese is delivered straight from the dairy twice a week. Zambrone Marina has many seasonal bars and restaurants, with excellent food and a large selection of locally made wines available.

Nearby Tropea is well known for its miles of white sandy beaches and turquoise coloured water and of course it is nicknamed the home of the 'Red Onion'.

There is also an annual Blues festival in the centre of Tropea towards the end of August, live bands playing in an open air atmosphere most nights during the festival. Tropea dates back to the 17th century with cobbled narrow streets, charming restaurants and stunning views...it's wonderful.

Inland the interior of Calabria is dominated by the Sila & Aspromante National Parks. Here you can see lakes & luscious forests in which there are wolves, Golden Eagles, Eagle owls & the rare Bonellis Eagle. Take a visit & experience the small villages with the local women still dressed in the black traditional clothes. Visit the area around San Giovanni in the winter and you could find full skiing facilities!
