About Jill Robson

We currently live in Wiltshire England and try and get over to the apartment at least twice a year. We bought the apartment so we could use ourselves and also rent it out when we are not. Most of our family have been out and love the place as much as we do. .

Jill Robson purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Jill Robson chose Tropea

Why did we buy? The views are fantastic, the beaches are clean and we love the local fish. The fishermen go out early morning and bring the fish back to sell to the restaurants for the evening. From the apartment if you get up early enough you can see these fishing boats catching there fish. We love it.

What makes this apartment unique

The view is unique no other complex in the area will offer you views like these.

Great days!

  • 5 of 5

We spent great days in Marasusa apartment. The house was small but very conforyable and mostly with an unforgettable view on Tropea. Sunsets are unforgettable from Marasusa's pool and it is well based to visit all Costa degli dei beaches. It's the perfect place where to relax and spend a very romantic holiday. We will surely come back in the future.

Una vista fuori dal comune

  • 3 of 5

Il residence è ben curato ed è semplicemente meraviglioso. Si trova su un promontorio a picco sul mare da cui si vedono le Eolie e Tropea dall'alto. L'appartamento non è molto curato e necessita pulizie straordinarie come armadi e coperte inoltre odora un po'di muffa. Tuttavia la vista e la piscina erano così belle da farmi dimenticare il resto. Nel complesso ci siamo trovati bene, la spiaggia più vicina detta di Michelino è stupenda, e il residence Marasusa è da sogno.

Owner's Response: Grazie per le vostre risposte. La coperta è sempre pulito a inizio anno e la nostra società di gestione pulire l'appartamento quando ogni ospiti foglie. Abbiamo in programma di aggiornare l'appartamento l'anno prossimo con una nuova cucina attrezzata quindi questo dovrebbe rendere l'appartamento sentire nuovo di zecca.

Traumhafter Ausblick!!

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnanlage 'Marasusa' ist ein Traum! Toll angelegt mit vielen wunderschönen und gepflegten Pflanzen - ein Augenschmauß, der jedes Gärtnerherz höher schlagen lässt!

Das Apartment ist mit allem Notwendigen ausgestattet. Wir wurden nett empfangen und wieder verabschiedet.

Der Ausblick auf Tropea, den Hafen, den Stromboli und das Meer ebenfalls traumhaft!

Wer Sonnenuntergänge liebt kommt hier auf seine Kosten - wunderschön zum Genießen und Träumen.

Der Pool ist ebenfalls toll, das Wasser war im Mai allerdings noch sehr erfrischend.

Tropea ist wunderschön, die Strände sind schön sind schnell erreichbar und man kann viele schöne Ausflüge in die Umgebung machen.

Das Wetter war in unserer Urlaubswoche nicht ganz so gut wie wir es von Süditalien in dieser Jahreszeit gewohnt waren.

Dafür gab es eine Blütenpracht (Bougainvilleen und viele andere tolle Blütenpflanzen).

Es war eine sehr erholsame und wunderschöne Urlaubswoche!

Wir können uns vorstellen noch einmal hier Urlaub zu machen.

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank für Ihr Feedback und Ihre netten Kommentare und ich freue mich, Sie genießen Ihren Urlaub. Wir haben tolle Mitarbeiter, die Wartung nach den Gründen suchen und halten das Schwimmen in einem guten Zustand, so dass wir alle genießen die Einrichtungen. Ich werde Ihre Rückmeldung an ihnen vorbei, danke. Es tut mir leid, dass das Wetter nicht so gut war, wie es sein sollte, sondern ganz Europa erlebt Wettergeschehen im Moment. Nochmals vielen Dank und wir hoffen, Sie wieder zu sehen. Jill

Amazing week

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Marasusa and although I would not have believed it the stay was even better this time.

The weather was amazing and this time with the pool open it made it even better.

We did a day trip around 3 of the volcanic islands which was an experience that we will remember forever.

The accomodation had been updated since our previous visit and the addition of the large porch was great as it allowed some shade in the hottest part of the day.

The local pizza restaurant is brill and the service is friendly and accomodating, and even better it is really good value for money.

As there were 5 of us we had both the larger and smaller appartments which is great as they are next to each other btu allow the extra space. We would definitely recommend these to anyone.

Calabria is situated at the toe of Italy’s foot, very popular with Italian and German tourists. The area offers many picturesque villages with excellent beaches to enjoy around the Tyrrhenian Sea.

• Visit Isole Eolie or Volcanic island of Stromboli by boat from Tropea marina.

• Scuba Diving and fishing trips available in Tropea.

• Golf course 30 min drive.

The nearest town is Tropea which easily wins the contest for prettiest town on the Calabria Tyrrhenian coast, with its narrow streets and beautiful historic buildings, or just stroll down to one of the many beaches that surround Tropea and enjoy the beautiful turquoise clear seas. You could hire a pedalo or learn to scuba divie at one of the local schools..

Parghelia has its own beautiful white sandy beaches or you could just chill out in the local coffee/ice cream shops and sample their lovely cakes/ ice creams.

In Parghelia you can enjoy a meal in the local restaurants and bar too.

There is a coastal train that stops at Parghelia on its journey around the coast line a great way to see Calabria at a low price.
