Pizzo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

My Italian Apartment!!! 60 Sq.Meters (645 sq. ft.) main apartment. 18 sq. meter terrace 185 sq. ft.). 60 sq. Meter(645 sq. ft.) solarium total all for your private use. Please enjoy my home in a mix of old Italian tradition and a thriving community. 10 minute walk to the quaint, historic town center of Pizzo. Here you will find the Piazza full of local tradition, food and festivals all months of the year. My apartment is in a gated, key entry, new complex with free parking and privacy. The apartment has a full view of the Tyrhennian Sea coastline, evening sunsets and mountains to the east. You can enjoy sunbathing, viewing the sea or relaxing from the private deck or penthouse sun terrace. You can use the binoculars to watch the local fishing and sailing boats, swim in the pool, relax in the apartment, prepare a scrumptious Italian meal and have a taste of Limoncello. Whatever you do, take time to rest and refresh your soul... listen to the birds chirping, an occasional far away rooster crowing, and a passing train. All of this adds to the local charm. Then... You set off for the town center or take a country drive.

The Apartment: Enter the second floor apartment via a marble and tile staircase, where the door will lead you to a 300 sq feet open living, dining, kitchen area, with French doors leading to the deck and full view of the Tyrrenian Sea coastline and setting sun. The living room is tastefully decorated with Italian leather sofa and chair, tables, lighting, TV/ DVD. The floors are of white Italian tile, giving the rooms a cool, contemporary feeling. You will find interesting wall art as well as local ceramic works from the beautiful Calabrian artists. To the right of the room, you will find a stylish Italian kitchen with seating and service for six. You will have use of a full kitchen, all utensils and many spices. Off the main room, you will find the bedrooms, both receiving an eastern breeze from the mountains. You will find one room with queen bed, full length cheval mirror and wardrobe; and the second room with twin beds and wardrobe. Both rooms have unique art, window coverings and comfortable lighting.

The Bathroom: Entering the bathroom you will have use of sink, toilet, bidet and shower with sliding doors.( The shower has ample room to comfortably bath, bend over and turn around!!!) You will have use of a washing machine located in the bathroom and will hang your clothes to dry in the natural sun.

The Deck, Sun Roof Terrace & Pool: Directly off the living areas, you will find full length glass doors that open to the deck and lead to the roof terraces. On the main floor deck, you will find comfortable seating for enjoying your morning coffees, eating a meal or taking in the Sea views. The area is furnished with teak wood, bench settee, table with chairs, sun umbrellas and several local terra-cotta pots with green plantings and lemon tree, giving the area a feeling of charm and ambiance. Choosing to climb the iron spiral staircase, you will find the sun roof terrace which will afford you a panoramic view of the surroundings, and allow you use of sun loungers, table and chairs, swing and umbrella. You may find this area comfortable in Summer for sun bathing, and Spring and Fall to feel the warmth of the sun and cool sea breezes. From both decks, you will have a view of the pool, which is close, yet far enough away to afford you a restful environment. The pool area, including umbrellas and loungers, is available for your use many months of the year.

In and Around Pizzo: My apartment is situated just south of the town and is a short, 15-20 minute walk, or (5 minute by car) to the main 'Piazza', or city square. Pizzo has a classic southern Mediterranean climate with sunshine and warm weather April through October, where you will find the water and sky are clear and brilliant blue. There are many seasonal festivals, local artists, produce vendors and weekly markets, where you can purchase anything from chestnuts to canaries! The locals are very friendly and will help those of you who are practicing your language skills. Pizzo and the surrounding towns have much to offer for all tastes. You may choose to wander the many winding streets of Pizzo, mingle with the locals where they gather in the Piazza for a refreshment, to people watch, and socialize. You may also choose to go sunbathing, or swimming in one of the local beaches, boating, touring to view the active volcano Stromboli, or take a day trip to one of the multitude of historic sites in the surrounding Hill-Top towns.

About Susan

I especially love Pizzo because of the sea view, mountains, and its small town atmosphere, which reminds me a little bit of where I was born and raised. I work as a Registered Nurse and always dreamed of living in Italy, and now I am able to do this part time. I believe you can do what ever you really want to do if you set your mind to it.

Susan purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Susan chose Pizzo

My Italian apartment is in Calabria and is nestled between a mountain to the east, and the Sea to the west. Both very important to me. The property is in southern Italy, still very traditional in it's old Italian ways. Very little English is spoken here. There is a local farmers market, bakery, butchers and small grocers. The people believe in family and tell me even a pizza is made for you with love.

What makes this apartment unique

We have a car and take frequent day trips. We have especially enjoyed Serra San Brunno, where we saw Te Pope. We have been to the Sila Mountains to a mushroom festival, to Paola to a chocolate festival, to Sicily several times, to Semanara where we viewed a famous Black Madonna, to Reggio Calabria to view the Riacci Bronzes. And many more... Learning Italian, Mediterranean Diet, LoVe, Sun........Sun............

Cappuccinos............ Local Fish for dinner,.........Gelato

in many flavors. Beautiful people, dinner invitations that start at 8pm and get over at midnight. Olive groves, The Pope might be seen at a local Monestary,

Perfect honeymoon

  • 5 of 5
First of all, you are getting more than your money's worth when you go for this place.

Susie was just great. She set us up with her property manager who lives nearby, Tom, was equally helpful and easy to get along with as Susie herself. He helped us get propane, groceries, picked us up from the airport, took us to the train station, showed us where we could buy a SIM card for our phone, the list goes on...he really offered us peace of mind and got us settled in very comfortably, with smiles on our faces.

Susie's apartment was jus right. Two bedrooms, comfortable beds, air conditioning, nice little kitchen. Nice deck with an excellent view, and then you walk up the staircase to your own private, rooftop paradise. Great view. You can hardly tell where the sea meets the sky. Just stunning. We watched eight sunsets and every one was spectacular.

The property has a nice pool area, great for couples or a family, with plenty of room and very secure. Few blocks off the main road and the right distance from town to give you convenience without sacrificing privacy.

The weather was fantastic the whole time. It's no wonder Italians never vacation outside of Italy...

Troppea and Zambrone are only a few local train stops away. Beautiful, hardly occupied beaches in the peak of summer. Unbelievable!

We were on our honeymoon, so we were pretty happy to begin with, but this place really takes the cake. You get everything you expect and much more. This is great deal. We'll be back!

Breathtaking Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
Coordinating and corresponding with Sue could not have been any easier. She went above and beyond. She was extremely informative, gave priceless advice and suggestions, and was always willing to answer all our questions. Her apartment was even better than the awesome pictures she provides. The views were amazing either from sitting inside looking out or from the private rooftop terrace. There were two of us and the apartment was extremely comfortable and cozy. It could easily be enjoyed by more than just two adults. It had all the amenities we were looking for and we always felt at home. The kitchen had everything we needed, and we enjoyed cooking on several occasions. Pizzo was amazing, easy to walk to the piazza every day, and filled with wonderful people. The beach at the sea was just a quick walk and was beautiful. Tom, the property manager, was so helpful. All of Sue and Tom's recommendations for food (the market & restaurants), cappuccino & gelato, and places to visit were excellent. We highly recommend that if you are planning a visit to this area of Calabria you stay at Sue's apartment.

Great views and stay!

  • 5 of 5
Modern apartment with beautiful views of the sea. Roof terrace very welcoming and enjoyable to relax after a day of sight seeing. Walking down the hill to the piazza for dinner was fun with the many steps and the square had lots of restaurants to choose from. the aparment was very comfortable, nice to have a washing machine to catch up with laundry and quiet building. Wish we were visiting during warmer summer months as the pool looked very inviting!
thank you for a great visit and a warm welcome from the apartment manager - Tom.

A wonderfull stay in Pizzo

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in calabria. Pizzo was a beautiful town know for the very famous tartuffo di pizzo (very good).

The apartment was outstanding. Very clean and lot of space for 4 people. The owner arranged that the two beds in the second bedroom were put together. so it's perfect for two couples. The roofterras has a super view over the sea en the stromboli volcano.

The local rentalmanger Tom was very helpful and he was available for al our questions.

You definitely need a car to explore the region. Reaching Pizzo is much more easy to reach by car but it's also possible on foot.

We were very lucky with the weather, 4 days around 25c° in february is even hot for that time of the year in Calabria

Overall I would like to thank the owner for a wonderful vacation. We love Italia..

Really lovely apartment in a brilliant location!!!

  • 5 of 5
We were very impressed with this apartment, it was very comfortable and easily accommodated 4 adults. It had everything we needed and with the modern décor it is a very attractive place to stay. The location is brilliant, and if you didn't want to explore the area you could get by without a car. There are local shops & supermarkets within walking distance and Pizzo centre is a nice walk (with a few steps involved) but there are taxi's if you have eaten too much Tartufo!! Sue was really helpful in arranging our booking (and even a goody pack as we arrived very late in the evening). The views from the roof terrace's are lovely, and the pool area was nice too. The site is small and well kept. We weren't familiar with this part of Italy before but we will definitely be back - there is lots to see & do and this apartment is in a perfect location to explore from. Great beaches and especially great food & people.
