The newly renovated residence is located in an over 200 year old, beautifully restored palazzo in the historic center of Pizzo, above the "Costa degli Dei", coast of Gods. Enjoy the peaceful location at the sea while at the same time the bustling Piazza della Repubblica of the old town center of Pizzo with its bars, ice cream parlors, restaurants and little grocery shops is just a 2 minutes walk away!
20 stairs down in a rock, about 50 meter above sea level, you will enjoy 180 degree sea view and beautiful sunsets. On a clear day, the volcano island Stromboli (part of the Aeolian islands of Sicily) appears in the distance.
The apartment, located in the "seminterrato" (basement) of the palazzo, features old stone walls and a vaulted stone ceiling. It is bright with windows facing the sea, a tiny French balcony and a large private garden terrace.
A brand new red kitchenette and the dining area are overlooking the sea. Even from the shower in the bathroom, below a vaulted ceiling tiled with blue mosaic, you can enjoy sea view. The living area and bedroom are separated by an antique wooden paravent. The apartment is very spacious and has a stunning private garden terrace where you can relax above the coast. The garden terrace is only accessible from the residence, from both the kitchen and the living area. The terrace has a bit of late morning sun and more sun in the afternoon, depending on the season. You will sea sunsets and Stromboli on clear days.
In just 2 minutes walk you can reach the main piazza with its many gelaterias, bars and restaurants, as well as some small grocery shops where you can buy water, milk, wine, cheese, salami, fresh fish, vegetable, fruits and more.
In just a 10-15 minutes walk you can reach the beach at Pizzo Marina.
Other areas of Pizzo, Pedigrotta, Marinella or Marina can also be reached with an Ape-Taxi Service from the main piazza.

About this location
The Calabria region
Pizzo is only 25km from international airport Lamzezia Terme (SUF) and one of the most charming fisher villages in Calabria. This part of the Calabrian coast is called "Costa degli Dei". It offers sandy beaches and crystal clear turquoise water with green mountains in the background. Other airports from where you can drive or take a train are Reggio Calabria, Catania (Sicily) and Naples. From the Amalfi Coast it is only 2 1/2 h by train from "Salerno" to "Vibo-Velentia - Pizzo".
Find our webiste for more information about Pizzo and day trips from Pizzo into the region or see our reviews on Tripadvisor.
Pizzo is famous for its delicious tartufo ice cream. And maybe also for its moment in history when French King Murat of Naples, brother in law of Napoleon, was captured in Pizzo and excecuted in the town's little castello Aragonese (or Castello Murat). The historic center of the village is located on a rock about 50 meter above the sea. From it's many small alleys and the main piazza you can enjoy beautiful sea views. Palazzo Pizzo Residence is located only 2 minutes from the busy Piazza della Repubblica in a quiet alley in an over 200 year old newly restored palazzo. This palazzo is next to the Church "Chiesa del Carmine" which was erected on a former chapel, that itself was built in the 16th century by coral fisher from the Amalfi Coast. The residence offers spectacular views over the bay of Sant Eufemia and on clear days until Stromboli, the volcano island that is part of the Aeolian islands of Sicily. From Pizzo you can start many day trips.
