“A Real Piece Of Italy”
Reviewed 7 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

If you are looking to experience a real taste of Italian life, then this is the place for you in a town that remains unspoilt by the trappings of commercial tourism.

Located on the third floor of an apartment block, right in the centre of a residential area, only a few minutes walk to the centre of Tropea, this apartment provides the perfect spot to soak up the local culture in a totally unspoilt area of Calabria.

Getting there involved flying to Lamezia from Stanstead, before hailing a 5 minute taxi ride to the station (taxi price €10). Once at the station we caught a train to Tropea (€3.40 for a single ticket, which you need to validate in the validation machine), that took us approximately 1 hour. When we arrived at Tropea we were met by Elizabeth, who drove us the 2 minutes to the apartment. Easy.

The only tough part was negotiating 3 flights of stairs with our suitcases to reach the front door but once inside it was worth the effort.

The apartment was clean, well equipped with all the necessary amenities (including air conditioning to all rooms) and spacious in the extreme. With three bedrooms (one double, one twin and one single) and a large kitchen/ lounge/ dining area, plus a bathroom and shower room, it will easily cater for a family of 5 or 6. There were also 2 terraces, one to the front and one to the rear, where you can watch the sun set and chat to the neighbours (in my very broken italian), who were very friendly.

The centre of Tropea is only 10 minutes walk away and sports a massive array of restaurants and bars from which to choose. There are also 2 very good supermarkets two minutes up the road, should you prefer to eat in.

The beach was also very accessible (10 minutes walk down the hill), with the clear blue Mediterranean just too tempting to resist.. We also visited Capo Vaticano and Pizo, which are both worth a visit.

Overall a very pleasant stay and a great base if you were to rent a car and explore further afield. We will definitely return.
