Description

Spacious, with lots of room and light - listed as an apartment - actually villa/bungalow style. Within its own private garden. Garden is a work in progress, orange, lemon trees, passion fruit and a variety of Ghosimina (Jasmine). A real sun-trap most of the day, if you are looking for a suntan. On the other hand, the terrace is always nice and shady.

Terrace view is spectacular, (great for dining al fresco).

On clear days you can see Stromboli (Volcano) and the Aeolian islands.

Your home from home faces both east and west. It's great to throw open the shutters in the morning, letting in the sun and fresh breezes and the mountains.

Just 5 minutes drive from the ocean makes it ideal. It's a fun and interesting drive down the hill routes, with two choices - dirt road or paved, through old Zambrone, again discovering magnificent views all around.

It is a great neighbourhood with good and friendly people. Safe and secure. Enterphone for secure access.

“Nice and quiet appartment in the mountains”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2013

Flat and interior in good condition. Pro: quiet located in the mountains, but appartment in one group of buildings, close to another 7 appartments, so maybe in peak season not so quiet (regarding neighbours) any more. Con: we were disappointed, not being able to see Stromboli from our appartment. You need to have a car, because the appartment is almost on the highest point of the mountain, unable to walk easily by feed. Village and nearest beach is about 5-10 minutes away by car. But in summary: a good outfitted, clean appartment, located in a good neighbourhood. Location a little peripheral but when going by car (at any time) no problem. Next time we would prefer a flat maybe little nearer to places of interest. Thanks for the lovely stay in this appartment anyway.

We always advise potential guests to read the description of the location and property in our Holiday Lettings ad', though extensive, is explicit and truthful. The property is at the top of a hill (not classified a mountain). It is less than 5 minutes drive down to the beach and less to the closest village of old Zambrone (bank,machine, pharmacy, grocers, hardware, Restaurants). The SA3 main highway is directly connected via rural paved road (through Zambrone) or a fun-filled drive on the unpaved road - either way, views are spectacular. Stromboli can be seen when departing the property, going downhill. Mount Etna (Sicily) can be seen on clear days at the end of the street, and on leaving the property. The pool is shared, but generally it is private. Not all the properties are for rent, hence it is never noisy and homes never fully occupied. It is 10 minutes drive into Tropea and 20 to Pizzo. Once again, everything is as described on the website.
