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

Historical Sites and Buildings

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.

1149502 - Villagio Marasusa Tropea

Das Appartement liegt gleich neben Tropea oberhalb von Paghelia. Mit dem Auto in 5 Min an einem schönen Strand. Das Appartement ist gemütlich für zwei Personen eingerichtet und sehr ruhig gelegen. Die Poolanlage ist schön. Nur sollte manchmal etwas drauf geachtet werden dass die Poolregeln eingehalten werden....wir sind ja gar nicht empfindlich und haben selbst Kinder. Dass der Pool zeitweise nur noch von Kindern und Eltern zum Spielen mit Bällen Luftmatratzen etc. benutzt wird ist etwas störend. Aber alles in allem ist das Appartement weiter zu empfehlen

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.

If you wish you can also visit Sicily - A short ferry crossing from the main port of Reggio Calabria
