About the property

Well-refined apartment with air conditioning in the historic centre of Tropea

Located in the heart of the historic centre of Tropea, inside a noble building (Palazzo Tocco) that dates back to the 1600s. We rent a well-refined apartment, recently renovated and well equipped (washing machine, dishwasher, air-conditioning, and Wi-Fi in the whole house). It offers 2 bedrooms with vaulted ceilings (original from the 1600s), a living room with sofa bed, open-plan kitchen, 2 bathrooms with shower, and a balcony overlooking a typical small square. The apartment can comfortably accommodate up to 5 people. Just 200 meters from the apartment, in 5 minutes walking, a staircase leads to beautiful beaches underneath Tropea. It is ideal for someone wanting to spend a very relaxed holiday in the heart of the artistic beauties and historic centre of Tropea, without having to use a car. Close to the beaches, restaurants, shops and bars.

Very good

  • 5 of 5

Very large, comfortable, apartment. Has everything you need. Wifi is not reliable. Correspondence with the owner is very slow but does occur. I would book this property again. Tropea is gorgeous.

Central location

  • 4 of 5

The home was very nice and close to the steps that lead to the beach. The bedrooms were nice and had balconies overlooking the restaurant and street below. Tropea is beautiful. All ages can enjoy this town. Please note that it isn't a handicap accessible town though. The steps are the only way to get to the beach unless you take a taxi and the apartment is on the second floor. I would stay at Palazzo Tocco again. My only remarks are that the air conditioning did not work in the second bedroom (and I had asked prior to arriving if it worked...based on a review I read about the same issue). The TV in the kitchen also randomly shuts off...not a big deal...just annoying though. I would still recommend this great house though and hope to return!!

as advertised, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

As 4 seniors from Tacoma Washington, the place was as talked about in the Homeaway profile. It was in the heart of the city, close to a great view and the place itself was comfortable with plenty of room. The Wi-Fi could have been better but we were able to use it.

al di sopra delle aspettative

  • 5 of 5

con mia sorella e mio cognato abbiamo molto gradito il soggiorno in questo bellissimo e comodo appartamento. La location è centralissima, il palazzo e l'appartamento pur risentendo degli anni, conservano un fascino particolare che ne fa apprezzare anche le piccole carenze. Se dovessi ritornare a Tropea, luogo splendido, ritornerò sicuramente in questo appartamento. Ottimo rapporto qualità-prezzo.

Great Location Lots of room.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is in a great location in the historic area. We had no internet or hot water for the first 4 days. The owners were away the entire month of our stay and communication was a bit difficult. Yolanda ( the caretaker) and her husband Vasile eventually sorted everything out for us. The apartment actually had 2 bathrooms and two bedrooms. We were there during off season so quite a few businesses were closed but we wanted for nothing. The boats to Stomboli were not running during our stay. Easy to walk everywhere from the apt. You are very close to the stairway (200 steps) to the beach. The street below is a little busy a few times a day as it seems to be a main route for some commuters. Tropea red sweet onions are fantastic and don't miss the d'uja, licorice liqueur and pizza. Only negative in the area is that it seems that no one picks up after their dogs and there is poop everywhere you go. The people of town are very friendly and helpful and eager to communicate with you as long as you make an effort to try some Italian.

A fantastic holiday in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic holiday in this delightful apartment in the historical centre of Tropea, just 5 mins walk from the beach. Stella and her mother were extremely welcoming and helpful, giving good advice on places to visit, etc. We felt welcomed and very well supported. Their apartment is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need to enjoy your holiday. This was our first visit to Tropea and to Stella's apartment and we hope to be able to return next year. It was absolutely delightful and we can highly recommend it.

Tropea is a wonderful small town built on top of overhanging rocks, at about 50 meters above sea level. It is a famous seaside resort at the Tyrrhenian Sea, southwest of Vibo Valentia and to the north of Capo Vaticano. There is an important Franciscan monastery and a Norman Cathedral from the 12th century. The historic centre is very interesting, with noble buildings from the 1700s and 1800s, located on a cliff overlooking sea and th beach. The beaches underneath the village are white and very clean, and the sea is bright blue and very clear.
