About the Property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

This 800 square foot apartment with 12 foot ceilings includes two bedrooms, one of which is a queen bed and the other being a double bed. The living room/kitchen area also includes a convertible sofa bed. There is a long continuous balcony connecting from the kitchen all the way to the master bedroom. This hidden gem of an apartment is family friendly and just a step away from all the amenities a town can offer!

This apartment sleeps 6 people in total. The master bedroom contains a large, 3 mirror-paneled full armoire, reaching from ceiling to floor, 3 drawer dresser with mirror attached and two nightstands. The master bedroom also connects to the continuous balcony overlooking the town. The second bedroom contains a 2 paneled armoire with a full length mirror attached. There is an 8 drawer dresser along with two nightstands on either side of the bed. Both bedrooms include plenty room to unpack wardrobe and other amenities. The washroom is fully equipped with all the necessities. It includes a toilet, bidet, shower/bathtub, sink with vanity mirror & medicine cabinet.To keep up with the hot and cold months of the year, this apartment is equipped with air conditioning and heating systems. The spacious kitchen/living room area has a new hard wood kitchen table seating 8 people; and a smaller desk area - if the trip is business based. The cooking area contains a gas stove and electric oven, a kitchen sink along with all the cooking utensils; plates, bowls, glasses, pots, pans, spoons, forks, knives etc. The kitchen leads to the wonderful balcony overlooking the town - mountain view included! The kitchen also includes a pull-out sofa.

As for the surrounding facilities and conveniences in Marina di Gioiosa Jonica, the apartment is less than a kilometer away from everything! This small town screams convenience with all the following amenities less then a 5 minute walking distance: there are 2 grocery stores nearby, a fresh fruit vendor, a laundromat, a hair salon, Guinness Pub (great for all night entertainment), Catholic Church, clothing stores for all ages, the popular Golosia bar (live music every night - family friendly), Rika Roka bar & lounge offers entertainment for an older crowd, Miramare hot table and cafe, the popular Cristoforo Colombo Lungo Mare (the main strip is closed off during the evenings so everyone can walk the strip along the beach), plenty of restaurants nearby especially the newly arrived restaurant known as Cesaroni! There isn't a better pizza in town! To prove the towns' affordability, the average individual sized pizza is only 4.00 euros! The beach is less than 5 minutes from the apartment. It has won the 'Bandiera Blu' every year for its outstanding quality, clear water etc. It is by far the clearest water ever!
There is an internet cafe just 500 meters from the apartment for your convenience at extremely affordable rates (ie. .50 cents euro for 1/2 hour service. Seconds away from the internet cafe is access to the train/bus station as well within 700 meters of the apartment. The train is an easy access to the surrounding towns, if one does not choose to rent a car.

Popular destinations within driving distance of the town include Soverato, Gerace, Tropea, Almalfi Coast, Taurmina etc. Soverato is approx. one hour away from Gioiosa. This popular destination is the hit place for clubs and evening entertainment. It offers a strip in which all the clubs and bars are along it. Gerace is the classic example of the classic, vintage Italy. This semi-mountainous area offers a great view of the towns below, sight seeing and viewing the old buildings, and is known for having the best Granita's in all of Italy, (over 30 different flavours!). Enjoy a walk through the town and main piazza while enjoying the best Granita you could ever have! Tropea is definitely Calabria's hidden treasure, located about an hour and ten minutes from Gioiosa. The several views from above cliff side are breath taking! If you don't believe me, google it! Words cannot describe Tropea. The cliffs, mountains, rocks and teal blue water are simply irreplaceable. If you're one for adventure, along the beach there are several heights to enjoy cliff diving! Tropea's also widely known for their amazing tartufo ice cream! I recommend sampling their signature while enjoying the views.
Sicily is also just an hour away. In Reggio, one may take the dragetta(ferry) across the chanel, or as I mentioned, may take the train.

Marina di Gioiosa Jonica and all of its surrounding features are a must see. It is definitely a family friendly area, close enough to an oasis of paradise! Sitting on the beach during sunset while sipping an italian cappuccino is just the the most picturesque moment while sharing it with a loved one. With an average of 300 sunny days a year, and the beach only footsteps away this is truly Italy at its finest!

Keywords: Marina di Gioiosa Jonica: less than 1 kilometer from the beach, fully air conditioned and heated, all amenities close by!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1991

About: I look forward to the authentic definition of what Italy truly is down in Marina Di Gioiosa, Reggio Calabria. It has all qualities,tastes & scenery at absolutely affordable prices - your Euro really goes far! It seems as if it is untouched by the fast moving Western civilization we are used to, & is a chance to enjoy relaxation & convenience. You must experience it to believe it.

Why Marina di Gioiosa Ionica RC, Italy:
My family and I have been vacationing here for over 20 years. The weather, the community, atmosphere, restaurants and night life makes the perfect getaway. We grew up in the town - it is our oasis away from home!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This property has it all within a 5 minute walk, as well about 50 meters down the street there is a public spring water fountain to get your fresh mountain spring water right off the tap, I can't emphasize enough about all the convenience at your fingertips. During the busier months (July- August) tourists from all around begin to venture upon the top rated beach. We have been fortunate enough over the years to have made friendships with some very good restauranteurs which I would be more than glad to recommend.
