We toured around Sicily and then crossed over to stay at this beautiful apartment in Pizzo. For us the location was really perfect - just on the edge of Pizzo (so not too noisy) but close enough to walk into the town and beach - about 10 mins or so, although we did find it hot walking with all our gear,so usually parked quite close to the beach or town square. It was easy to find the appartment and there was plenty of parking space for our car. The pool was a couple of minutes walk away (with reclining sunbeds and umbrellas) and it was great relaxing on the sunbed looking up to the mountains beyond.
The apartment was clean with a well equipped kitchen (huge fridge/freezer - essential with the temperatures we experienced!), good sized bathroom (with very useful washing machine!). We didn't take children but the apartment has an unbelievable array of games/books etc for children so I think it would be perfect for a family. The bedrooms were spacious and there was a sitting room with table and chairs if we wanted to sit inside. Not that we ever did sit inside - we found the balcony was perfect for taking our breakfast (after collect Italian pastries etc from a bakery around 5 mins walk away and would usually go up to the huge rooftop solarium in late afternoon evening. Sipping a chilled glass of limoncella or wine whilst watching the sun setting over the sea was a real delight! We really loved this area. Pizzo is a great place for swimming, people watching, eating and drinking and just soaking up the wonderful Italian sun and hospitality. During our stay we drove into the mountains of the National Park, visited Tropea and went on a boat trip visiting the volcanic islands (including Stromboli) - all of which I would definitely recommend. We hadn't realised we could have taking a trip from Vida Marina which would have been much closer for a 7.30 am pick up! There are local taxis and tuc tucs but I think it would be less enjoyable to stay here without a car. We would highly recommend this apartment and the owners couldn't have been more helpful giving us advise along the way.
