About Miriam McComb

I live in Ireland with my husband and 2 children and 6 year old Schnauzer and a few chickens. My husband and I both work, but love to spend time refurbishing our very old farm house.

Miriam McComb purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Miriam McComb chose Pizzo

We love Pizzo because of its fantastic beaches and its "olde worlde" feel in the town. There are some great bars and restaurants plus an absolute to die for ice-cream parlour. There is really something for everybody. The area is easily accessible with Lamezia Airport just 20 minutes away.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is just an easy 3 minute walk away from the beach and is in a gated area. We provide beach towels and umbrellas so you can travel light and make the most of the beautiful coastline. For those who enjoy a more active holiday there are plenty of water sports. If you fancy a night in with a home cooked meal the apartment is more than adequate to suit your needs. Of course you can just laze by the large pool if you want.

It is just a 3-minute walk to the long sandy beach of the Tyrrhenian Sea, where there are plenty of private and public areas for relaxing and sunbathing. There are also many beach bars and restaurants dotted along the shoreline. Cycling, fishing, Pedalos, beach volleyball etc are all readily available.


Lamezia Terme airport is just a 25-minute drive. Car hire is recommended. You can arrange car hire, taxi or private transfer from the airport. We will be able to assist with pick up services with the help of our management team. Naples Airport is approximately a 5-hour drive. From Rome's Airports it's approximately a 7.5 hours drive.


The old historic towns of Pizzo and Tropea are a respective 5km and 35km drive south. These are indeed two of the prettiest Italian rustic towns along this stretch of the beautiful Tyrrhenian coastline. From here you can take a ferry trip across to the active volcano on the island of Stromboli, the most famous among the Aeolian Islands. Travelling further south (75km approx) you will arrive at Reggio di Calabria from where you can catch a short ferry across to the island of Sicily.

Further Details:

Aside from the ferry trips across to the active volcano on the island of Stromboli and Sicily, there is an aqua park close by which would be of interest to families. This is to be found approximately 20km south of Pizzo heading along the coastline to Zambrone.
