Fabulous holiday, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very spacious,plenty of room for four and had everything we needed and was very clean,bright and modern.The pool was great,again very clean,plenty of sun loungers a lovely place to relax,the complex as a whole was well maintained and great to let the kids run around.The apartment was close to the beaches and marina,a good supermarket nearby for shopping.The pizzeria across the road was great value and saved on the cooking.A car is recommended for getting around,but the apartment is close to train station and taxis's are always around but a cheap and fun way of getting around is by tuk-tuk which we used for getting into Pizzo town for meals and drinks.The town of Pizzo is lovely,plenty of cafe bars and restaurants,all very friendly and we had great meals in very lovely surroundings and very good value.

Paul and Lorraine from Calabrian services were the managers,and contacted us when we made the reservations and gave us directions from the airport which were perfect,and only took 20 minutes from the airport to Pizzo town where we collected the keys from Paul.Paul gave us plenty of information,directions,maps,where to eat,places to visit,he was very helpful

and made us very welcome and made sure we made the most of our holiday. We had a fabulous holiday it was excellent value and we will certainly return.

Pizzo Town is located on the Tyrrhenian coast of Calabria. Pizzo is a very popular seaside resort and fishing centre with the heart of the town located on a headland above the sea,offering spectacular views across the Tyrrhenian coast. Pizzo town is very much a historic town with many attractions such as the Chiesetta di Piedigrotta, a seventeenth century church with statues carved from the rock. Castello Murat ,which overlooks the sea and the small harbour, is a fifteenth century castle. St. George's church is stunning where the grave of Joachim Murat, King of Naples lies.Pizzo is very much a bustling town with its picturesque network of narrow streets and lanes. The heart of the town is Piazza Della Republica, with its historic bars and restaurants offering a wide range of refreshments, where you can watch the world go by surrounded by stunning architecture and panoramic views. Enjoy the delights and colour of the market on a Thursday where bargaining is a must to get great value for money. Pizzo is world renowned for its ice-cream and is known as 'La Citte del Gelato',ice-cream city and a sample of the famous tartufo di pizzo - a chocolate truffle ice-cream is a must. The local restaurants pride themselves on offering locally sourced and very fresh produce,cooked simply but full of flavor with much of the emphasis on paprika and garlic. The restaurants offer good authentic Calabrian cuisine at very affordable prices.Pizzo town has a small harbour surrounded by small beautiful beaches with crystal clear water, here again you will find local restaurants and café bars.Many festivals take place during the year where the streets become awash with colour, the sea festival in August is amazing.A great and relaxing way to see the sights of Pizzo is by tuk-tuk,with pick up and drop off points located in and around the Pizzo area.

The marina which 5 minutes away from the apartment, is absolutely stunning. Surrounding the marina are a variety of shops,resaurants and cafés, some of the restaurants overlook the marina offering fabulous views as you dine,a very relaxing and tranquil place to end the day.Surrounding the marina are the white sandy beaches and turquoise water,the beaches stretch around the coast so they are never crowed and always relaxing.The beaches offer sun loungers and parasols and café bars offering snacks and drinks,lido prosperina is a beautiful small beach with its own small café and sunloungers, again very close to the marina.

As Pizzo is situated close the train stations, motorway and port, it is an ideal base to explore further a field. Briatico, Parghelia, Tropea, Capo Vaticano and Nicotera are well worth visiting. During the summer months it is possible to take a boat trip to the several Aeolian Islands,departing from Vibo Marina. One of the islands you will visit is Stromboli,which is an active volcano and night trips are available where you can see the spectacular sight of the volcano erupting-a magical sight. A visit to Capo Vaticano is a must, trips can be arranged at the booking office at the marina.
