About the Property
1 bedroom + sofa bed, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4
Private terrace where you can dine 'Alfresco', large table seats six persons; plus the owner has left a BBQ for your use, looking onto your own private garden, lemon tree included and if your lucky, free lemons.
The apartment is set in well maintained mature garden, peaceful, tranquil and stunning. With the added advantage of a swimming pool, with sun beds, and Jacuzzi for private use of people staying at Marasussa. During July and August there are plenty of activities in the villages and in September there is the famous Tropea jazz festival.
This apartment is superbly positioned. Sat on a hill in the lovely village of Parghelia where the locals are friendly and helpful. Have a coffee, read a book, watch the world go by ... or take the family off to the beach. Go boating, do the inflatables, banana's, ski, or ever fancied a jet ski, well now is your chance .. and all this is on your door step.
If your the adventurer, you are well positioned to go off exploring. The historic town of Pizzo is 25 minute drive away. It is the home of the famous 'Tartufo' , a must for all ice-cream lovers. There is a castle and museum, cathedral, tombs, the 'Piedigrotto' caves, San Franchesco Church, the marina and that's just Pizzo.
Vibo Valentia is for the archeologicalists, amazing what you can dig up !!!
A Norman castle perched on a hill, housing the Museo Archeologico Statale'Vito Capialbi'.
Just below, the libuary, worth a visit just for the view. The museum of art, 'Valentianum Museo di Arte Sacra. And one of my favorites, the cathedral, 'Duomo di Santa Maria Maggioge e San Leoluca. Best to do your home work before visiting, as there is not much information in English. Though there is a local information tourist board in every town. Check out the Airport tourist office and ask for any info in English they may have, you will be amazed.
Vibo also boasts the largest street market in Calabria held on a Saturday morning. Plus there are a lot of street shops, something to tempt all the family. The Vibo Commercial Center is only a 10 minute drive out of town. An evening visit to Vibo, you can try some of the best restaurants in Calabria. The back streets are full of them.
Vibo Valentia is a good place for hiking and trekking. You can enjoy the sea or the mountain paths, where you can explore and take photos of the unspoilt landscape. The 'Sentiero Frassati della Calabria' is one of the best Italian paths, where you can walk for at least 7 hours uninterrupted. Another stunning place for hiking and trekking is 'Lake Angitola', close to Maierota and is preserved by the WWF. Here you can watch grey herons, great crested grebe, swans and many other species.
Tropea is a must to visit. Hundreds of tourists would agree. In September Tropea hosts the 'Tropea Jazz Festival'
Capo Vaticano is another popular place to visit. Have a walk up to the light house, stop for tea at the 'Light house Cafe' and home produce shop, guarentee you don't leave empty handed. Then visit the beach. Golden sand and delightful restaurants.
Nicotera is a 30 minute drive, well worth visiting. It was an important Locrian colony whose name means the ''Victory Miracles''. It is situated on a panoramic point, close to the province of Reggio Calabria. During the XI century 'Roberto il Guiscardo' fortified the town and built a castle at the top of the town. Now, the castle is an archeological museum. The medival cathedral of the city is important because inside there is a 'Gagini's memorial statue. You can also appreciate the stone fountains and the astonishing sights of Gioia Tauro valley.
Reggio Calabria is only 2 hours away; Scisily 40 minutes and a ferry ride further.
