Southern Italy region
Calabria is a mountainous region that has been slow to embrace Euopean tourism, and is therefore comparatively unspoilt in comparison to other european countries. The climate on the western coast is nearer to African than Mediteranean, and the beaches are in use from April until the end of October, with many sunny and warm days throughout the winter.
Tropea has a wealth of history and a long and interesting artistic and musical tradition. The old town is of particular interest, with many attractive bars and restaurants.
Boat trips to the islands are popular, with "Stromboli by night" being a particular favourite.Everyday a boat from the harbour will take you to the island.

"Lovely house with a spectacular view...."
We stayed in the house for a week and it felt like home with all its comforts. The bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen are all very well equipped. The WIFI connection kept us connected whilst still away from it all. The garden around the house is a good size too. The family who own the house are very helpful, friendly and yet discreet. They made our stay very special.... and will definately visit again.

"Lovely week at the villa in Tropea"
I spent the last week of May in this villa with my brother and his 3 adult sons, twins of 22 and a boy of 25 . We had all arrived in Tropea wanting a relaxing week ,escaping from very busy lives .The photos of the place really are accurate and do it justice .The villa was very comfortable , clean and well equipped .It was also quite spacious which suits 5 adults .Cristian the owner , lives next door with his parents and brother .He speaks good English and was very charming and so helpful , giving us all the information we needed , whether,it was do with food shopping , the best beaches or the best bars/ reataurants to visit .. Cristian was very kind to the boys , taking them snorkelling one day and lending them his equipment .Even though the family live next door , they gave us 100 % privacy .The real bonus of this place is its position ., and its garden . It is elevated above the town , only 5 mins away but quiet and private .The garden was just lovely with sunbeds, chairs , tables etc and a wonderful covered dining area that we used for breakfast and dinner most nights . One of the boys is a professional chef and he was delighted to cook using local produce and make use of the facilites which the family were most obliging in preparing , for him .He used the barbeque and the outside pizza oven . In fact we asked the family to join us for dinner that night and we all enjoyed not only fresh pizza from the oven but Cristian's mothers delicious pasta and melanze , and his brother Simones homenade strawbery ice cream. . The beach is probably 5 mins walking down steps from the town and it was clean and the sea was aquamarine and lovely to swim in .The steps back up are fine for the young but you need to be fit if you are older .We often walked down and someone would drive so we all got a lift back . I think you do need a car. The train station is 5 mins from the house and we went to Pizzo one day to visit the famous stone grotto , which was quite beautiful , all the altars and statues are carved out of the cliff , well worth a visit . . There are many places to eat , and cafes to drink , and gelato to eat .The main town has many places to choose from .We ate out twice , both excellent ,La Boeme and Il Vecchio Forno ,the latter fanatstic value . I would highly recommend this property , the place and the family were delightful and we all will return .Also it was very good value .Calabria is much cheaper than other parts of Italy .

"Tropea is a great place to visit"
We arrived and were met by a lovely, charming Italian family who live next door. Cristian Buttafuoco estate agent was a very good host and was able to give us lots of information about the locality.
The house is spacious, clean and comfortable. It has a well equipped kitchen and a really large living/dinning room for family meals. There is a good sized garden.The view from the house across the town and the sea is stunning.
The pleasant walk into town took 10 minutes but fifteen minutes when walking back up hill. Tropea is a fantastic town. It has many shops, cafes and restaurants. The people are very friendly and welcoming. The daily food market was great. Tropea has some of the best beaches we have ever visited.

Ich und mein Freund verbrachten gemeinsam mit unserem Hund (also Tiere sind willkommen) zwei unvergessliche Wochen im Haus von Cristian, dem Besitzer. Ich war von Beginn an schlicht weg begeistert von meinem Aufenthalt. Die gesamte Familie war stets darum bemüht uns unseren Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu gestalten. Das Haus hat einen fantastischen Ausblick und liegt in einer sehr ruhigen Lage, was ich persönlich für meine Erholung brauche. Dennoch ist es nicht weit vom Strand entfernt, weswegen ich die Lage ebenso als sehr zentral beschreiben kann. Die Ausstattung des Hauses war zwar nicht die neuerste, aber dennoch alles in Ordnung und sehr sauber - einfach nur perfekt. Ich kann mich nur nochmals bedanken, für die wahnsinns Gastfreundschaft und für den tollen Urlaub.

"Tropea - a jewel in a crown"
Tropea - a jewel in a crown
We have just returned from a late October break in Tropea with a family of 5, and have felt compelled to write this review because we had such an amazing time.
Having never ventured this far south of Italy, not sure what to expect but it beat our expectations in so many ways - the apartment, the host, the weather, the scenery, the town, the people, even Ryanair!
The apartment is set on the hillside overlooking Tropea so has good views of the sea and the rooftops of the town - you can see Stromboli volcano out to sea from the garden. The apartment slept our 5 very easily, and could sleep more using different configurations. It was clean, bathrooms modern, and the kitchen provided all the required equipment (although I must confess we ate out every night but one). The hot water was very hot and the cold water was cold, all bed linen & towels were provided - what more could you want?
The secure wi-fi (the owner provides the security code upon arrival) proved very helpful for the teenager daughter to keep in touch with friends.
Ok - the fact that you have the great views from the hillside means you are reasonably high up which means walking the 10 minutes into Tropea involves quite a steep walk back so you soon get used to behaving like the locals and driving it!
The apartment sits high up above a main road (so it's there but you cant't see it, and noise very minimal during the day and virtually non-existent in the late evening/night), which makes getting anyway very convenient. More of a positive than a negative in my opinion.
Cristian, the host, was very kind and a great source of local information - where to eat (there were so many restaurants open still), when and where the local markets were etc etc. And living next door aways meant he was available if we needed him (which we never did, but it was reassuring).
We were very surprised about the weather - it was hot enough to be on the beach every day and to be swimming in the sea. Evenings got cool quite quickly so you needed a warm pully.
Tropea is a lovely place - the scenery dramatic with the cliffs, friendly locals and hardly any English menus!!! Made us feel like real tourists!
All in all, definitely recommend Tropea, and this apartment, and we will be back very soon for a totally relaxing holiday.
