About the property

Villa in Zambrone, Calabria, Italy - Tranquil And Peaceful Location Overlooking Lovely Blue Seas, The Seashore And The Aeolian Islands

This immaculate villa set in a perfect location on the Tyrrhenian coast has breath taking views over Zambrone beach and the Island of Stromboli. Luxuriously decorated throughout, the villa is modern with air conditioning in each room. Situated in its own private grounds which are fully enclosed, it is a wonderful spot to rest and relax in beautiful surroundings. The private terrace which overlooks the seashore is just the place to watch the sunsets over Stromboli and the other Aeolian Islands. A true panoramic vista awaits those who love to eat and drink outdoors and wake up to the blue Mediterranean. A short distance away is the picturesque town of Tropea, the jewel in the Calabrian crown with lovely old narrow alleyways, cobbled streets and wonderful restaurants and piazzas. Sicily and Taormina are just two hours away. With hiking available all year round, skiing in the winter months and a lovely woodburner to come home too, this truly is a destination for all seasons.

Villa at Zambrone

  • 4 of 5

The villa was in an excellent location with superb views of the coast, very convenient for visiting lovely towns such as Tropea and Pizzo, as well as touring the dramatic mountains inland.

It was very comfortable and spotlessly clean, and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals on the terrace, - Stromboli at sunset was memorable!

Further Details:

Behind Zambrone train station is a path which takes you to two hidden sandy coves. Here you can swim in crystal clear waters and relax on one of two curved beaches in perfect surroundings. A picture of these two beaches is in the photographs display.

Tropea is a lovely old town with a café culture. It has traces of inhabitation that date back as far as prehistoric times. It's rich culture, ancient history and beautiful white sandy beaches with the added attraction of a view of Stromboli, the island volcano, makes Tropea a very popular tourist destination. It has the picturesque church of Santa Maria dell' Isola and also an annual Blues Music Festival and international film festival. Tropea has a lovely marina where you can hire speed boats, day pleasure boats or take fishing trips. There are also day or night tours to see Stromboli and the other Aeolian islands.

Twenty minutes away is the lovely seaside destination of Capo Vaticano where there are good restaurants and beautiful beaches. Hire a small boat from the Grotticelli beach to take you to secluded private coves around the very small headland. Here you can swim and sunbathe more privately. Also a must is to go to the small lighthouse which overlooks the beaches and have a late afternoon drink in the little bar there. A great spot to chill and have a nice cold beer or a glass of Prosecco after a days sunbathing.

Just down the road from Zambrone is the coastal town of Briatico. Here you can take a fishing/cruise day trip along the coast. It is a good day out and you will experience how the locals fish and be able to go swimming off the boat. The days cruise travels down the coastline stopping at various places along the way for swimming until you arrive at Capo Vaticano where the waters are crystal clear. Here you have a lunch prepared for you whilst you are swimming in the lovely blue sea.

Two National Parks are within easy reach by car and there you can go walking, following nature trails or just appreciate the regions flora and fauna.

The villa has loads of books to read and a large collection of up to date DVD'S.
