The villa is ideally positioned between two magnificent medieval towns of Pizzo and Tropea; both towns are only 10 min drive away.


Is a friendly small market town; it has numerous family run shops offering fresh local produce including restaurants and bars. The nearest beach is less than 1 km away from the villa and benefits from having quality beach side restaurants offering fresh home cooked cuisine with views over the bay they are open all year round. The soft sandy beach has a raft of activities including scuba diving, snorkelling, pedalo, boat, and sun bed hire. Part of the beach has a very safe naturally shallow children’s bathing area.


A large lively historical town blessed with old magnificent buildings, narrow cobbled streets filled with bars, ‘al fresco’ restaurants and individual shops open until the late evening. A must do whilst in Tropea is to visit one many cliff top viewing areas where you can look out over the sea and admire the famous convent of Santa Maria Dell'Isola.


Blessed with medieval origins; this little fishing town is quite stunning when you wander through its narrow streets full of ancient houses looking out over the wonderful sea views. Pizzo is also the home of Tartufo ice cream there are numerous al fresco Gelaterias serving locally produced Tartufo, it’s one of Italy’s most famous ice creams and a real delicacy, definitely a must before leaving.

About Nigel

We have been married 26 years and always had a passion for Italy. We visited most of italy, but fell in love with the charm and unspoilt beauty in Calabria.

We then found the partially built villa & from the moment we stood on the terrace & saw the breathtaking views - we knew it was perfect. Three years later we finished the project & enjoy many holidays here.

Why Nigel chose Briatico

Villa Bergamotto offers a true 'home from home' experience. It has been totally refurbished to a very high standard with marble floors & bathrooms all being very spacious with attention to detail.

Both apartments are well furnished and include beach chairs, cool bag for picnics & even a beach portable BBQ. The terraces have quality sofas, sun chairs, dining furniture and romantic lighting - the perfect setting for an apperitvo or al fresco dining.

What makes this apartment unique

Location is superb, quiet yet in a few minutes you can be on the beach or drinking/eating in one of the lovely family owned beach pizzerias. Our beaches have free and easy parking and only a short drive to the more touristic towns of Tropea and Pizzo.

Ideal also in Autumn or winter for walkers or trekking as we have a very efficient pellet stove and electric blankets if needed.

Breathtaking Scenery!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the first floor apartment, it was very clean and very organised.

The beds and linen were very comfortable, the shower was very powerful.

We were very happy with the feel of the apartment, it was modern but very cosy and homely, the mix of new and old has been achieved very tastefully indeed.

The weather was glorious during our stay and we made full use of the sun terrace whenever we could, the scenery is simply inspiring!

The beaches were beautiful, there were many restaurants all of which were very cheap, but the quality was high.

We would definitely recommend this apartment, we will hope to return again perhaps next year.

The Calabrese Dream. Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed at Nigel and Mandy's place 'Villa Bergamotto' for one week at the end of August. I must say - I can't fault one thing. We had the most amazing stay and experience of Calabria - mainly due to their suggestions and recommendations! We usually like to plan our stay when we go abroad - but I am so happy we decided to follow their suggestions as they really do know the area so well. They are English locals having known the area for 10+ years with many friends in the area. We wouldn't have been able to take advantage of the best that Tropea/Briatico/Zambrone/Vibo has to offer without having read the information pack or spoken with Nigel and Mandy about things to do and places to visit. We took a speedboat out for a day at a very cheap price and ate at a fantastic, affordable seafood restaurant along the coast after anchoring and swimming to shore. Tropea is a must - lovely side streets, delicatessens, shops and gelato! We had wonderful food and drink throughout the duration of our stay as we chose to eat at restaurants which were all recommended by Nigel and Mandy. Whether its seafood, pizza, pasta, contemporary, fine-dining or quirky/unique cuisine you are looking for - they will know somewhere you will love!

The apartment itself was very elegant with luxurious ornamentation - comfortable/plush terrace seating, large opulent bedrooms with a variety of pillows to suit your preference and an aesthetically astounding garden with herbs for cooking and beautiful plants and flowers surrounding you whilst you have your morning alfresco shower (should you choose to use it - I would recommend!). The apartment was equipped with absolutely everything you will need - they provide wine, condiments, local liquor, terrace BBQ, crockery, fun beach games, snorkeling equipment and much more. We rarely needed to contact them as everything was available and clearly communicated to us prior to arrival and on arrival by their local friend, Francesca - who was incredibly helpful and spoke many languages!

Our stay at Villa Bergamotto was one that will stay in our fondest of memories forever. We will be revisiting Calabria next year to do all the other things we didn't get round to doing during our stay this time and we want to say a huge thank you to Nigel, Mandy, Francesca and all of the Calabrese locals who made our stay so wonderfully unforgettable.

We would recommend staying here to everyone and anyone - affordable, mesmerizing and unforgettable.

Beautiful villa with perfect sunsets

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderfully chilled holiday we had in Villa Bergamotto. Decorated to a very high spec and the attention to detail was faultless. We enjoyed our breakfasts on the shaded balcony watching the sheep and goats being herded by with their tinkling bells. Then in the evening watching the stunning sunsets with a chilled glass of wine.

Coastline has so many beautiful beaches. We explored quite a few during our first week but ended up loving the local lido in Briatico, La Perla Del Golfo. Very friendly family run restaurant with delicious local food. Excellent views over the sea both during the day and evening. Pizzas and local wine excellent value!

Trip to the bustling town of Tropea is a must but was always such a pleasure to return to the tranquil Villa Bergamotto.

Mandy and Nigel were the perfect hosts, providing so much information on the area. We had the pleasure of spending an evening with them and what a fun night we had!

We hope to return one day.

Amazing location and superb service 5*

  • 5 of 5

The moment we drove up to the apartement my mouth dropped. The stunning scenery, modern design and clear blue sky I knew I was in for a gorgeous week in Italy. I was welcomed by a sweet, kind and well spoken lady who showed me around and even greeted me with a slice of cake and a glass of prosecco! The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen had all the necessary utilities to cook up a lovely lunch. There are no words to explain the stunning panoramic views from the upstairs terrace.. except WOW. Already getting excited about arriving back next year!!
