The apartment is ideally located to capture both the sweeping mountain landscape and the panoramic views of the Ancient Town of Tropea and its Marina, all these vistas are set against the majestic volcano of Stromboli and the crystal clear waters of this magnificient coastline. Set in beautiful gardens with infinity pool/jacuzzi and relaxation area, this is the ideal location to relax and unwind.

Leading from the comfortable lounge of the apartment is the balcony ideal for al-fresco dining with spectacular views of the sea and Stromboli . The apartment is light and airy with high cielings and offers plenty of space for couples to relax and unwind - a sofa bed is provided at no additional cost for couples with perhaps two small children. Comfortable bedroom area with new high quality double bed and large wardrobe. Newly fitted bathroom and fully equipped kitchen also with spectacular views.

Just two minutes down the mountain you will find the small village of Parghelia with shops selling freshly baked bread,locally produced vegetables/fruit and wines, there are also several small Restaurants and Bars for you to try.

Tropea is a large historical, traditional fishing town which is only 5 minutes from the apartment. Magnificent buildings interlaced with winding cobbled streets leading to beautiful town squares where you can sit with a drink and take in the atmosphere of this unique place. Eating out in one of the many excellent restaurants or simply exploring the traditional shops and markets is truly an enjoyable experience.

A must do whilst in Tropea is to visit one many cliff top viewing areas where you can look out over the sea and admire the famous little church of Santa Maria dell'Isola.

Why not take a walk round the harbour where you can buy fresh fish from the local fishermen. You can also book trips from here to many of the nearby Islands including the famous active volcano of Stromboli which is an amazing experience especially at night. Tropea is surrounded by excellent safe clean award winning beaches some of which offer a wide range of water sports including diving and boat hire.

The apartment makes a great base from which you can visit many other interesting locations - highly recommended is a visit to Gerace which is a magnificent 15th century fortified mountain top village - an absolute gem and a photographers dream, just one hours drive through magnificent mountainous scenery.

Pizzo is another place well worth a visit and only twenty minutes away from Tropea .The medieval origins of this little fishing town are obvious when you wander through its narrow streets full of ancient houses looking out over the fantastic sea views.

If you wish you can also visit Sicily - A short ferry crossing from the main port of Reggio Calabria

Southern Italy region

This area consits mostly of the Aspromonte mountain range. Its valleys, gorges and massive craggy peaks dwarfe the little towns lodged on its slopes and along its magnificent coastline. Experience the real Italy - local food and traditions. Relax and enjoy the experience of award winning beaches by day, al-fresco dining by night in Parghelia or Tropea.

Visit the many towns and villages just a short dive away from Tropea ,such as Stilo Calabria famous for La Cattolica a terracotta coloured Byzantine chapel, or Gerace another must see medieval Village, where you can spend hours sitting in the sun in the piazza in front of the cathedral, Wild flowers poke up between the old cobbles, goats wander by while the odd tiny Fiat 500 might squeeze into sight from some narrow adjacent alley.

For the more adventurous a walk in the little town of Gambarie set on the side of the Aspromonte mountain. Here you can walk among pinewood and admire the views over the Straits of Messina to Sicily.


Tropea is a beautiful historical town set in a stunning location - famous for its award winning beaches, quality restaurants and bars- alfresco dining and fun nights out.

Attractions include the many medieval buildings and architecture - A photographers dream

Visit Stromboli and see up close and personal this active volcano .Boat Trips available throughout the season

Take part in the many water sports on offer, boat hire and diving is also available

This is a wonderful way to experience the real Italy

"Amazing view"

Was torn between giving it a 3 or a 4, but gave it 4 in the end for the amazing view and helpful staff. Also the pool was very enjoyable, and the village in general was tidy and clean.Good value for t… More

I am very disappointed that you found the bed uncomfortable - the bed was bought in England from a vey high end department store it has a very high quality memory foam mattress and was very expensive - I my self and my partner find it extremely comfortable and all my other guests have also found it to be comfortable. The size of the bed is a standard double 4foot 6 inches which is what most people use in England - so may I say once again I am sorry it wasn't to your standard but it is a very good bed much better than you will find in most holiday apartments. As far as the cleanliness I will be taking this up with Lorraine as all our previous guests have always commented on the high standards maintained unfortunately we are unable to do anything regarding the Lizards or the spiders but the dust issue will be passed on. You also commented on the beach towels not being clean - may I say that these are left for our guests to use as an extra but are not included in our Linen wash as I explained in the information Manual guests using the towels are asked to wash them as a courtesy to the next guest coming in - so once again I am sorry this was not done - no other hotel or apartments offer beach towels so I will have to think seriously regarding this service for next season. all I can do is apologise again and hope you still managed to have a lovely holiday.

"The perfect honeymoon location"

Myself and my husband stayed in Tony and Angela's lovely apartment for our week long honeymoon. Their very helpful agent, Lorraine met us in Pizzo and showed us the way to the Marasusa complex from there. Car hire is a necessity as the apartments are situated quite a walk up a very steep hill from the nearest village. The apartment complex is beautifully maintained with lovely gardens and the pool area with views over the sea and as far as the volcano of Stromboli is a delight.
The apartment itself was perfect for the two of us with everything you could need in it and plenty of lovely extras also such as a bbq on the balcony and beach towels and a portable parasol.
We spent most evenings sitting out on the balcony watching the amazing sunsets and relaxing with a bottle of wine.
The owners, Tony and Angela also very kindly left us a lovely bottle of bubbly for our honeymoon and we found the book with all their recommendations for places to visit to be very helpful.
The village of Paraghelia where the apartment is situated is a lovely small village with a couple of nice pizza restaurants and ice-cream bars.
Tropea is only 2 kilometres away and is a lovely old town to spend a few hours wandering around and there are some lovely restaurants and bars there.
Overall I would definitely recommend the apartment as a lovely holiday location with everything you could need and want and we hope to be back very soon.

"Wonderful Romantic holiday destination - stunning views - a beautiful place"

Thank you for letting us use your lovely apartment in Marasusa

The weather was lovely 28C and apart from an overnight rain storm the sun shone bright every day - which is great for October. We explored the area and managed to find many wonderful beaches - the sea is so blue and clear and the people very friendly - its a great time to visit not many tourists around.

The apartment is really lovely and the views from the balcony just amazing - we enjoyed a few glasses of wine watching the sunset. You provided so many little extra's which we really appreciated and we found the apartment to be very comfortable and homely - the room is bright and airy with high cielings and there was a nice breeze coming in from the balcony so we had no need to use the air conditioning( although it is provided). - just right for us to chill and relax in after a long day out. The beds are very comfortable and the linen and towels good quality. The booking process is very simple and the Meet and Greet service provided is very good.

Marasusa is a very beautiful place with stunning views and lovely gardens - we enjoyed a walk down into Parghellia the sleepy little village at the bottom of the mountain - there are some lovely little cafe bars and a couple of family run restaurants serving lovely food at very reasonable prices.

Tropea is amazing full of atmosphere and history a great place for a lively night out - we found some very good restaurants and bars and it is not over priced as some of the more well known places in Italy - and the people more friendly

A car or motor scooter is advisable as there are so many lovely places to visit.

We had an AMAZING holiday and we wish you well and thank you again for the Marasusa experience. Looking forward to next time.

"Lovely apartment and lovely views."

The whole booking process was simple.
Lorraine, the agent in Italy was very efficient and made us very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for her and her team.
We had a lovely fortnight here. The weather was fantastic.
The apartment is compact but has everything you could possibly need in terms of equipment and comfort. Our son joined us for a week and whilst it was tight we managed. It is perfect for two people.
The views from the apartment are stunning and the complex itself is very well cared for. The gardens are superb.
We enjoyed the use of the beautiful pool too.
There is plenty to do around and about but you do need a car. The hill to the nearest village would be too much of a climb having purchased the morning bread!
Tropea is a great town for wandering around and there are many good eating places for the evenings there.
A trip to Stromboli is a must. We even managed a long day to Sicily to see Mt Etna too. There are plenty of places to visit and the beaches are lovely but you have to get there early to park in the height of season anyway.
A great fortnight and I am sure we will return.

"amazing - spectacular - wow factor in every way"

we holidayed at Marasusa in May/June of last year and did not know what to expect as this area was completely new to us. On arrival I must admit that my partner and I were absolutely amazed at the beauty of the place. set in magnificent gardens with views to die for it is an absolute gem. totally unspoilt and organic - you have magnificent view from the apartment - the balcony and the bathroom window - its amazing. the aparment is so well equipped the owners have considered all eventualities. we spent many evenings eating al-fresco - drinking the local wine and watching those amazing views from the balcony. the apartment is set in its own little paradise - peaceful and tranquil. the apartment is clean and comfortable and the owners are extremely helpful and friendly - they actually phoned us on our arrival to make sure everything was ok. the pool and jacuzi area is stunning - once again you have those magnificent views of the sea and mountains and the old town of tropea. the town of tropea is a wonderful place steeped in history and with a good selection of cafe bars and restaurants- unique shops and buildings anda beautiful beaches and marina - only five minutes by car from the apartment - we also visited Pizzo just 20 minutes away - again this is an amazing place. the coastline has many beautiful safe clean beaches - all this is just a 5 minutet drive from the apartment. this is one of the most beautiful places we have visited and we will most definately be going back. - a car is a must as there is so much to see and we would also recommend the stomboli by night trip. It is a great place for couples or families - this is a wonderful romantic destination and we loved every minute of our time there.

"A Lovely holiday apartment"

The description of this holiday apartment by the owners was extremely accurate. Although the apartment was on the compact side, it was very clean and tidy on arrival, the kitchen was fully equipped for everything you would need for a self catering holiday - We ate every meal on the balcony as the view was absolutely wonderful. The bedroom was not fully enclosed - divided by a partition wall - and for this reason I think the apartment would be most suitable for a single person/a couple or a couple with no more than 2 small children/baby. The complex was fabulous - very quiet with beautiful views and the swimming pool area was so relaxing.. A car is a must as the drive up the hillside was very steep. Local bars/ beaches were reached nearby via car and were lovely. The owners could not have been more helpful prior to our stay and also left plenty of information in the apartment to make our stay more enjoyable. We had a truly wonderful - Thank you to the lovely owners - Tony and Angela.
