About Tony Banks/Angela Cogan
Hello my name is Tony and I have been visiting this beautiful place for several years - I fell in love with this area and Marasusa in particular because of my passion for the traditional Italy- good food- good wine and spectacular views. I am a keen photographer and love the out doors. I use the apartment as a base for travelling and visiting the numerous spectacular locations throughout the region - but it is always good to get back to the apartment in time to enjoy the truly magnificent sunsets and relax on the balcony with a nice glass of local wine or a G&T with Lemon from the garden. I live in Yorkshire with my partner Angela - Harris Hawk Savannah - Cats Annie and Mia . I am an avid Animal Lover with a passion for the outdoors and walking. Yorkshire is a very beautiful County - Angela and I spend most of our spare time visiting Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay walking the beautiful coastal paths . I have been renting out my apartment for several years now and am pleased to say that I have met many new friends.
Tony Banks/Angela Cogan purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Tony Banks/Angela Cogan chose Parghelia
Marasusa is totally unique spectacular views Unspoilt - the real Italy close proximity to many Magnificent safe beaches set in beautiful gardens with Infinity Pool and Jacuzzi Excellent Value for Money Historical Sites and Buildings Walking and Hiking Sailing - Diving and Watersports
What makes this Apartment unique
As I turned off the coast road and drove through the picturesque Italian Village Streets on my approach to Marasusa the air of excitement began to build. The winding road from Parghellia Village to Marasusa is particularly beautiful - however once I arrived at Marasusa it is fair to say I was completely overawed. the tranquil setting of this place along with those magnificent views and its close proximity to Parghellia Village and the beautiful beaches and town of Tropea totally sold it to me - and I have never been disappointed. I particularly chose my first floor apartment as unlike the ground floor apartments it benefits from high ceilings and also I feel it has the most spectacular views of the coastline - mountains and Stromboli Volcano and its breathtaking sunsets.

Two children at no additional cost. Sofa Bed

The views and sunsets were spectacular and the pool a good size with plenty of sunbeds.
Tropea town/beaches were fabulous. The complex was quiet and well maintained if a little ‘tired.’ Our apartment was well equipped but not as clean as youd expect and there was no clean linen for 2nd week. either. The hilltop location afforded fantastic views but necessitates a car unless extremely fit. Suit families wanting quiet holiday.
Belle petite location !
Séjour de 9 nuits, calme quasi total en ce début juillet 2019. piscine de la résidence superbe. Tout est très propre dans cette location climatisée. Il ne nous à rien manqué. Très bon emplacement de la location : 1er étage, terrasse à l'angle du bâtiment sans vis à vis, vue mer.
merci pour votre belle critique ... je suis vraiment très contente que vous ayez passé de belles vacances ... oui la vue est vraiment magnifique. il est bon de savoir que vous avez trouvé l'appartement très propre et confortable ... c'est comme vous dites très paisible, même en haute saison ... angela et tony.
thank you for your lovely review...i am so very happy that you have had lovely vacation....yes indeed the views are truly beautiful. it is good to know you found the apartment to be very clean and comfortable...it is as you say very peaceful, even in high season...angela and tony.
Wonderful area, studio with a great view.
The appartment was well equiped and has a great view. Important to note though that is is not a one bedroom apartment but a studio. That made the sitting area inside limited.
Nevertheless we had a great stay and the owners were very helpful.
Piacevole permanenza a Marasusa
Siamo stati molto soddisfatti dell'alloggio, (piccolo ma confortevole), per via della sua funzionalità, per la tranquillità del contesto oltre che per lo splendido panorama. La dotazione della casa è adeguata, salvo due annotazioni:
1) sarebbe utile sostituire l'ombrellone che ombreggia il terrazzino con un tendone (più funzionale e pratico);
2) l'assenza dell'antenna che rende la TV presente un semplice schermo per vedere dvd ecc.E' vero che in vacanza la TV non è essenziale ma la possibilità di vedere ogni tanto un telegiornale non dovrebbe essere esclusa a priori ...
Per il resto però. tutto molto bene.
Dear Alessandro..Thank you for your review..we are happy you enjoyed your holiday..the apartment is very comfortable as you have kindly stated. It is perfect for two adults and one small child as advertised..but you requested to include an additional adult and we were happy to oblige you this at no additional cost. The balcony has been served quite adequately by a parasol for the last eight years to all our guests without problem or comment. As clearly stated in our advert the apartment does not offer TV viewing however we provide a TV monitor so our Guests can watch DVD and listen to CD music...most of the other rental apartments do not offer this facility. It is lovely to hear that you appreciated the beautiful outdoor space and spectacular views.from our Balcony...Marasusa is indeed a very special location....We hope you return one day. Thank you Angela and Tony

Thank you for your lovely review....we are so happy you enjoyed your holiday....Villagio Marasusa is indeed a very special holiday destination and the views magnificent. It iis good to know it pleases you also. Greeting Angela and Tony
The apartment is ideally located to capture both the sweeping mountain landscape and the panoramic views of the Ancient Town of Tropea and its Marina, all these vistas are set against the majestic volcano of Stromboli and the crystal clear waters of this magnificent coastline. Set in beautiful gardens with infinity pool/jacuzzi and relaxation area, this is the ideal location to relax and unwind.
Leading from the comfortable lounge of the apartment is the balcony ideal for al-fresco dining with spectacular views of the sea and Stromboli . The apartment is light and airy with high ceilings and offers plenty of space for couples to relax and unwind - a sofa bed is provided at no additional cost for couples with perhaps two small children. New deluxe Double Bed - Newly fitted bathroom and fully equipped kitchen also with spectacular views.
Just two minutes down the mountain you will find the small village of Parghelia with shops selling freshly baked bread,locally produced vegetables/fruit and wines, there are also several small Restaurants and Bars for you to try.
Tropea is a large historical, traditional fishing town which is only 5 minutes from the apartment. Magnificent buildings interlaced with winding cobbled streets leading to beautiful town squares where you can sit with a drink and take in the atmosphere of this unique place. Eating out in one of the many excellent restaurants or simply exploring the traditional shops and markets is truly an enjoyable experience.
A must do whilst in Tropea is to visit one many cliff top viewing areas where you can look out over the sea and admire the famous little church of Santa Maria dell'Isola.
Why not take a walk round the harbour where you can buy fresh fish from the local fishermen. You can also book trips from here to many of the nearby Islands including the famous active volcano of Stromboli which is an amazing experience especially at night. Tropea is surrounded by excellent safe clean award winning beaches some of which offer a wide range of water sports including diving and boat hire.
The apartment makes a great base from which you can visit many other interesting locations - highly recommended is a visit to Gerace which is a magnificent 15th century fortified mountain top village - an absolute gem and a photographers dream, just one hours drive through magnificent mountainous scenery.
Pizzo is another place well worth a visit and only twenty minutes away from Tropea. The medieval origins of this little fishing town are obvious when you wander through its narrow streets full of ancient houses looking out over the fantastic sea views.
