About Bill Stewart

Grown up in my hometown of Kilmarnock in Ayrshire. I am a Mechanical Engineer to trade and currently work for the local college. My wife, Lorna is a Practice Nurse working in nearby Ayr. We have one son, John.

Bill Stewart purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Bill Stewart chose Vibo Valentia

Originally we were looking for an investment opportunity and had previously looked at apartments in Spain. However when we came for a short visit to Calabria we realised what a special unspoilt place it is. We loved the beautiful coastline, the welcoming locals and the slower pace of life here, great for relaxing. We decided on this apartment because of its great location and stunning views and we try to holiday here as often as we can.

What makes this apartment unique

Stunning coastline views, beautiful sunsets, Sunshine, its proximity to the beach, restaurants, local shops and train station. You can choose a relaxing holiday or pursue beach activities or tour the coastline North or South using the coastal train. Beautiful Tropea town is a short drive away or if you want to try the local vino, use the coastal train. Its worth visiting for its old world charm, cafes and bars. Did I mention the Sunshine!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a superb location!!! A treat to see stromboli erupt every wee while while as we watched the sun go down over the sea. The closet beach at Zambrone.....shhhhhhhhhhh......we're keeping it a secret!! It's so perfect and couldn't quite believe it was within walking distance. We had a trip to Panarea and Stromboli and were priviliged to see an actual eruption on stromboli. Red lava flowing off the mountain then hitting the water with a hiss. Amazing!

We'd been to Tropea and Pizzo before and was lovely to spend time there again. Also ventured up to the Silla National Park for a bit of respite from the heat.

We had the most wonderful time and we are now planning when we can return again!

Excellent apartment in a good location

  • 5 of 5

The Apartment in Sunset at Tropea is spotless and is well equipped. Providing you with everything you need to have a great holiday. I stayed there with my husband and teenage daughter and there was plenty of room for all of us. Zambrone is a lovely place. There are two beaches to walk to which take about 20 minutes. Both are well worth the walk the beaches are clean the water is crystal clear. My favourite is the secluded Beach which is a very steep walk however when you get there it is beautiful. I like the fact that there is nothing there you take your own drink/snacks just like all the Italians do!!! You are rewarded on the way back by a glass of fizz and an ice cream at the Station Bar. The train from Zambrone will take you to many other beautiful towns like Piso and Tropea (costing only a couple of euros) both very busy and good fun. I work as a School Teacher so for me I love the fact that there is no Wi-Fi, no papers. It is a complete getaway. (you can of course get Wi-Fi in most of the restaurants in the towns). This is my third visit to Zambrone and I know I will definitely be going back again.

Everything was perfect! Superb location and view!

  • 5 of 5

The property was as decribed; local manager provided us with all the information and the service in general was very good.

We liked the apartment very much because there was everything needed for a good and relaxing holiday.

Not far from the apartment there are local restaurants, train station, supermarket etc.

There is wonderful sandy beach close to the property, or you can go bit further to find another one, we also liked it. You can find a very good restaurant right on the seafront.

The view from the balcony and the rooftop of the apartment was really stunning!

I would recomment this apartment to anyone who want to spend great, relaxing and comfortable vacation close to the sea.

I want to come back there right know! :) i will surely recommend this property to all my friends!

clean apartment with fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful apartment. it was spacious and clean. the views from the balcony were fabulous. I would say that it is a bit of a squeeze for 4 adults, as the living space with the sofa bed is also the kitchen. we were just 2, so it was perfect. highly recommended, as is the ice cream at the train station!

Lovely property- Great holidays esp. For couples

  • 4 of 5

The appartment was very lovely and clean with a fantastic view out To Stromboli and the Sunset. Property is exactly as described and shown in the picture and nearby the Nice cities Pizzo and tropea. The agents were Nice as well.

The only think To admit is about the train/ Bus Situation in zambrone and the Region. No Busses and the Train comes like only every 2 Hours. So I think it would be bettee To have a car.

Nevertheless, Book this property.. You wont be dissapointed!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review which is so helpful for future guests. We agree a car is advisable if you wish to travel away from the coast but all services and amenities are a short walk from the apartment. The train service used to be every hour so not sure what's happened on the day you used it.
