The town of Pizzo is a must to visit and is a 10 minute car journey away. Here you will find a main Piazza packed full of ice cream parlours and pizzerias. From here you can walk down through the myriad of streets to the main promenade area of Pizzo where you can also find plentiful eateries but remember you have to walk back up again! This area is accessible by car, but parking can be limited especially on festival evenings.
The Marinella beach, Pizzo and the other beautiful town of Tropea face west, and therefore an ideal spot to watch the breathtaking sunsets.
Strictly no smoking or pets.
The Calabria region
Calabria is the most southern province of Italy's mainland. It offers 750 km of long sandy beaches. In Calabria you can enjoy the authentic unspoilt southern Italy and in many villages time has stood still and life is quiet and tranquil. From coast to coast it is only 40 kilometers and to cross the mountains coast to coast is an exceptional experience.
Boat trips available to visit Stromboli, the volcanic island and other Aeolian islands in the vicinity and can be booked locally and usually sail on a Thursday afternoon.
On the West coast you will find Tropea; a beautiful town with its buildings appearing to be carved into the rock above the sea and has panoramic views of the whole mediterranean Sea and Aeolian islands. Small cosy restaurants, bars and shops make it a popular destination for visitors. Often to be seen is a beautiful sunset, with Stromboli visible in the distance.
The Pizzo / Marinella area
Pizzo is a seaside resort and a remarkable fishing centre. It has a myriad of small streets with restaurants and bars. The famous ice cream "Tartufo" originates from here and in many cafes you can enjoy this delicacy whilst watching life pass by in this small town. Between Pizzo and Marinella you can visit the Chiesa di Piedegrotta which was built in memory of sailors who survived when their boat sank off the coast, during the 1600's.
Walking along from Marinella towards Pizzo there are many coves to explore or just sit and enjoy the sun and panoramic views.

"A clean, comfortable, well appointed apartment in a great location"
This is a lovely apartment, probably in the best location in the building, had everything we needed and also benefited from a large shaded balcony to sit out and eat meals. It looks out over the large pool and is only a few minutes walk from the sandy beach. Pizzo is about 5 minutes drive away but if you don't want to go into town there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance and a huge ice cream shop at the end of the road. We had a very nice relaxing time here.

"Perfectly equipped apartment and great for young children."
My husband and I stayed at Sabbia di Marinella for two weeks during July with our two little girls (age 5 & 6). It's only a 25 minute drive from the airport which is such a huge bonus when travelling with young kids. Both the owners and the management company sent very detailed directions (although I hate to admit we still missed the turning off the main road)! However, the management company talked us through it and were waiting to let us into the complex and then showed us the way to the nearest supermarket which I thought was great service. We stupidly blew the fuse that evening by having one too many air-con units on, so spent a rather warm first night, however again the management company impressed us by answering our text first thing and talking us through where to find the fuse box in the main hall. That was the only issue we had the entire holiday. The pool is fantastic for small kids as it's graduated so great for little learners. There aren't many apartments in the complex so the pool area never seemed particularly busy. We had a rather nervous walk down to the beach restaurant the second night, but soon discovered the area was actually quite safe and full of other young families wandering round till quite late. The girls LOVED the dancing on the beach on Saturday and Sunday nights which meant we could enjoy the evening for longer too. Enrico's gelateria is mentioned tonnes previously and I've nothing to add other than it's all true and very delicious and less than a 2 minute walk! There are tonnes of lovely little quiet beaches all along the coast and at Pizzo itself. We ventured to Tropea beach once which was nice but very busy and we got a parking ticket even though we checked and couldn't see any signs (aparently they target hire cars so watch out). Load of restaruants to try and food lovely and typically Italian. All VERY child friendly. All in all a very nice, relaxing holiday and I would thoroughly recommend both the apartment and the owners who were very friendly and helpful right from the start. The apartment is actually the best stocked and equipped apartment we've ever stayed in. Every little detail has been thought of.

"Icecream Lovers Paradise. Unspoilt Italy at its best"
Excellent accommodation with every comfort. Complex maintained to high standard. Lovely pool and 3 minutes walk to beach. Town of Pizzo delightful and very short car ride away. Local train station takes you along beautiful coastline to Tropea. From there its possible to get boat over to Stromboli. Day trip well worth it. Several eating places within walking distance of accommodation. Recommend sword fish. A must is a visit to one of the ice cream cafes in the square at Pizzo to sample their famous ice cream or maybe a cocktail.

"a first class apartment, beautiful complex and fantastic pool"
We had a lovely week here, easily accessible from the airport and very near to the beach. The apartment is fitted out to a very high standard, very comfortable, great having two bathrooms. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the air conditioning was very welcome. The balcony is the best on the complex, perfect aspect, a generous size with very nice furniture. The pool area is well maintained and the pool exquisite. We hired a car and easily shopped in nearby Pizzo. A trip to Tropea is also a must.
