Guestbook comments from the owner

“L'appartement est très bien située. La terrasse avec vue sur la mer est plus qu'agréable. La piscine est au pied de l'appartement et la fréquentation est faible ce qui garanti un certain confort ! Etant situé dans une résidence, votre véhicule sera en sécurité. L'agence immobilière qui s'occupe de l'appartement de Pamela est très disponible. Ils sont accueillant et prennent soin de vous. Aussi, le contact avec Pamela a été très bon, malgré une erreur de conversion du site pour les prix, elle a su être réactive et régler le soucis avec AirBnB. Nous avons vraiment apprécié la Calabre qui est très belle, offre des vues magnifiques et des plages variées. Merci. ”

Peaceful apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment on a quiet and relaxing complex in a stunning location. There are many beautiful places to visit on this coast, our favourite was Tropea You definitely need a car to get around although there is a beach, bar and restaurant in walking distance. Recommend a visit to the pizza restaurant up the hill. Excellent advice throughout from Pamela, thank you!

Great compact apartment with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We spent almost two weeks in the apartment and it catered for all our needs.It is in a gated complex which is very safe and tranquil. The pool was an added bonus and to be honest for us a necessity as it can get quite warm.

Although a car is a must we had no problems finding out way around.

The food, scenery and the atmosphere were great.

Tropea was close by and had some beautiful restaurants which were reasonable. We loved That's Amore. The spaghetti with the red onion sauce was delicious.

Last but not least - Pamela went the extra mile helping to sort flights, giving advice on things to do and places to go. We actually spent the night in Piza before flying down to Lamezia Airport which we thoroughly enjoyed. Her management Team in Pizzo couldn't have been more helpful and are on hand at all times should you require assistance.

Thankyou Pamela, we will definitely be recommending a stay at your apartment.

Beautiful sunny apartment in great location.

  • 5 of 5

The property was excellently presented and comfortable. The kitchen/living room was a great place to spend time and the balcony is perfect for reading a book or having a glass of wine while the sun sets. The swimming pool is warm and relaxing. Great location within walking distance of a secluded beach and within driving distance of many different towns and beaches.

Excellent - clean, well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was everything the owner described.

Situated in a well maintained gated complex with a large swimming pool

Pamela was quick to respond to my initial enquiry and readily gave further advice and suggestions to my additional enquiries which made our holiday much more enjoyable.

A car is a must as it allows you the opportunity to visit the lovely rural villages which offer good value for money restaurants.

I would thoroughly recommend this apartment as a means to explore Calabria

Splendid view

  • 4 of 5

Booking was very easy and the owner (Pamela) was very accomodating. She sent us lots of photos and other useful info. Packning up the key from the lokal facility service was also easy, they were open until late.

When we arrived the gas bottle was empty but one phone call and one hour it was replaced.

The apartment is part of a complex of some 20 or so apartments/villas that all sit inside a gaten area. The pool was quite large and very beatifully located.

The apartment is relatively small but functional and well-kept. It has a large balcony overlooking the pool area and above all - the sea. Very nice neighbors. We were invited to an impromptu birthday party were we were server cake, prosecco and live music by some Russian balalaika virtouso who planer Both "Kalinka " and "O sole mio".

The only downside is that you have to drive to everything: the beach, the supermarket, the restaurants.

Owner's Response: Dear Client I am happy you enjoyed my apartment and how lucky you were to experience the musical talents of my Russian neighbour who is a very famous classical guitarist . When we are at the apartment he is always on tour so we miss the real thing but I love listening to his CD . Also you enjoyed the famous Calabrian hospitality with Prosecco and cake. I have been invited to parties and enjoyed wonderful hospitality .It is possible to walk to a fantastic beach I go there very day .

This new apartment ,6 km from Tropea, authentic Italian town known as the ' Jewel of the south' with cobbled streets, chic cafes and a Cathedral.

Tropea beach was voted best beach destination by Sunday Times 2007 and no1 beach in Italy 2009. Zambrone beach is 2 km from apartment has crystal clear sea white sand , restaurants,sunbeds, pedaloes, canoes, tennis courts, scuba diving and boat trips to Stromboli are available. Within walking distance from the apartment is scenic cove, I recommend an early morning stroll for a swim, a great way to start the day!

Take a picnic, spend the day in idyllic surroundings !

Watch the Sunrise and the Sunset from my balconies. Zambrone village has festivals. A Pizzeria just up the hill is recommended, 300m the fruit and veg (frutta e vedura) stall, has local wine and products.

Visit the piedogrotto caves in Pizzo.Come, relax, enjoy, stupendous seaviews, a beautiful swimming pool , olive trees flowers and butterflies at Borgo Fiorito

Other Activities: Boat trips .
