A ferry to the beautiful island of Sicily is only an hours drive away. It takes only 45 min and leaves regularly from Reggio Calabria so would make a great day trip.

This part of the country is still unspoilt by tourism but English is widely spoken and the people are warm and friendly. In Gioiosa Ionica there is a market every Sunday where you can sample home made cheeses and local wines. The market is a great place to buy food and drink to enjoy on one of the three balconies at the apartment. Just 10 min walk from the apartment you can eat in one of the many family run restaurants serving the most delicious, regional cuisine. There are also many bustling bars and restaurants that line the beach. Most stay open until the early hours.

Why Richard Logan chose Gioiosa Ionica

We fell in love with this region of Italy. The locals are friendly and welcoming and the area remains unspoilt. When we saw this property, it was perfect. Its close to the beach and has a huge Pool,which is great for the girls. It is also within walking distance of many restaurants, which means we get to eat out regularly!

A nice, well kept complex and friendly apartment owners around. Carlos - the owners agent - is an absolute gem and speaks perfect English as well as several other languages.Had an issue with gas for the hob and he came within 15 minutes with a new bottle😁?. Beautiful beaches around the area. Wi-fi excellent

Wonderful unspoilt area of Calabria - apartment complex very nice and friendly.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful holiday in Gioiosa Ionica. The town itself is enchanting, not tourist driven at all so a real escape into Italian life and culture. The apartment was lovely. It was a real treat to have a kitchen and large bathroom with a bath. The three balconies were an added bonus too. There are lots of lovely areas to visit within a reasonable drive from Gioiosa and the food really has to be sampled to be believed. We loved it, had an amazing holiday and would love to return. Highly recommended.

Très bel appartement neuf dans une résidence sécurisée. L'appartement est très fonctionnel et très agréable. La petite terrasse est à l'ombre toute la journée ce qui est parfait pour prendre les repas. Et la piscine est très grande, les enfants ont adoré.
