Fijne vakantie in Lily Rosa
De ontvangst in Lily Rosa was hartelijk. Lily Rosa is een fijn huis. Vooral de tuin was een heerlijke plek om te chillen. Als Hollanders misten we in de keuken het koffiezet-apparaat. In de buurt hebben we verschillende plaatsen bezocht als Zungri, Tropea en Pizzo. Ook de eilandentrip naar Stromboli is een aanrader, echt fantastisch! Wat betreft de stranden in de buurt gingen we toch het liefst naar 'ons eigen strand' Zambrone Mare. Wel vielen ons de wegen in Italië erg tegen. Zodra je van de snelweg afkomt, wordt het een drama. Verder hebben Italianen zo hun eigen verkeersregels, dus je komt soms ogen te kort als je aan het rijden bent. Het weer was heerlijk. Tenslotte nog een tip: als je voor dit huis kiest, neem dan anti-muggenspray mee. Anders kan je 's avonds niet ontspannen buiten zitten. Een enorm compliment voor Mary Grice: het contact met haar verloopt heel prettig. Ze reageert snel op vragen en geeft tips. Erg fijn! We wensen volgende gasten net zo'n fijne vakantie toe als we zelf hebben gehad in Lily Rosa!
Bedankt voor die vriendelijke woorden, we zijn erg blij dat u een goede tijd bij LilyRosa heeft gehad. We zijn ook erg blij dat u de Italiaanse Wegen heeft overleefd!
We had a lovely holiday at Lily Rosa in Zambrone. It was very quiet, with beautiful views of the sea and Stromboli, a short drive to the beach, and within walking distance to the village of Zambrone. The coast is ideal for swimming and snorkeling. Pizzo to the north and Tropea to the south of Zambrone were both interesting and enjoyable to visit. The house was spacious, very well equipped, maintained and clean. The owners provided very useful information about the house and the area. Altogether a super holiday.
Thank you for those lovely comments about Lily Rosa and the surrounding area. We are so please you enjoyed your holiday and hope that you will be able to visit Calabria again soon.
Lily Rosa is a very well equipped house with air con in the bedrooms, it is in a great position for sight seeing and has some wonderful views.
The local village has a shop a pizza restaurant and a bar, all very friendly and great value for money.
We had a wonderful holiday here for two weeks and would love to come back.
Thank you for your review Lester; I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Lily Rosa and hope you are able to come back to this beautiful part of Italy soon.
The coastline has many beautiful beaches. The closest is Zambrone Mare, about 4 km away. Parking is available directly on the beach front and there are bars and restaurants.
Lamezia Terme Airport is approximately 55 km away. Car hire is readily available at the airport.
Tropea is the most beautiful jewel on the Calabrian coast, and is only 10 minutes drive from Lily Rosa. There are beautiful beaches, a stunning Franciscan monastery, many lively bars, shops and restaurants and historic architecture.
Zambrone, like many of the pretty villages nestling along this coastline, has a grocery store, pharmacy, butchers, fishmongers, and a piazza with a choice of bars, and is an easy 20 minute stroll from Lily Rosa
Many places of interest in Calabria can be reached in under an hour, including the eastern coastline of the Ionian Sea. You can take a boat trip to the Aeolians or visit Stromboli to enjoy the mud spa baths of the volcano. (Boats depart from Tropea or Vibo Marina). There is good snorkelling all along the coast, and Scuba diving at Groticelle and Tropea. It is a very pleasant drive down the coast to Reggio di Calabria where you can visit the famous Riace Bronzes at the museum.
Enjoy the Autumn Jazz Festival at Tropea, and many other festivals in towns and villages throughout the region. You can also visit Sicily, taking the ferry from Villa San Giovanni (departs every 18 to 20 minutes) crossing the famous Straits of Messina. Or drive into the Sila Mountains region to enjoy skiing in winter, or just enjoy the magnificent nature reserve year-round.
