Tropea is widely recognised as the foremost seaside resort town in Calabria. The fifteenth century Centro Storico (historic centre) is atmospheric and captivating, with superb and reasonably priced restaurants, bars and traditional shops. The Marina adds glamour to the town, and Tropea has been used in many films and TV series owing to its dramatic and scenic location. Lido culture is readily available on the many beaches, and the monastery and Isola make a stunning backdrop to a day on the beach. Summer temperatures often reach 40 degrees, with bathing on the beach starting in April and continuing well into the November. For those with Google Earth, there are some excellent photo's to be viewed. Public transport is good with a pretty and frequent coastal train service, buses to Vibo and plenty of taxi's at all hours. It is not, therefore, essential to have a car.
Free Internet Access now available.
Other Activities: Boat trips to volcanic Aeolian islands (Stromboli).
Golf: Golf is available approximately 20 minutes drive south of Tropea
Ski: Ski is available in the Sila National Park, around two hours drive from Tropea.
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Hello, my name is Bob, my wife is Janet, and we have two grown up daughters who (fortunately) speak several languages, including Italian.
I am a Surveyor by profession, and my day job is Managing Director of a company that builds houses for sale. Janet works in Education, and we live in Buckinghamshire.
Why the Owner Chose Tropea: Having been fortunate enough to travel extensively throughout Europe, when the time came for us to buy our own holiday home it was our vision to buy our property in a local community rather than a holiday complex that drove our decision.
Tropea and the surrounding area has been unspoilt by high rise development and mass tourism, and it has retained all of it's charm from a bygone era. For many in Tropea, the family way of life is unchanged for many hundreds of years.
It was this charm and way of life that directed our decision to buy where we have.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Having viewed many properties, it was important for us to have a good range of facilities on our doorstep, and to be able to walk easily to all that Tropea offers.
Accordingly we have excellent butchers, fishmongers, bakers, supermarkets and local markets all within a few hundred meters from our door. We can walk to the beach and the Old Town in less than ten minutes, all of which means that we don't have to get in a car if we choose not to, and time spent on chores is minimal.
Speaks: english, french, german, italian
