“Stunning views and lovely place to relax!”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Bella Vista has beautiful views of the sea, we had great weather and most days we could see Stromboli smoking away, it was a lovely quiet haven to return to. The house itself is comfortable, we enjoyed our stay there and while we had a couple of issues, Phil the owner was very helpful, generously going out of his way to make our holiday enjoyable!

We were so glad we brought heaps of DVDs, so we weren’t stuck watching Italian TV.

You need to hire a vehicle, the roads are a bit rough with potholes, but we were able to see so much more with a car.

The shops close from around 1200,1330 and reopen at approximately 1630 closing at 2000.

We visited some great places, Tropea, Pizzo and Stromboli by ferry and of course lots of swimming at the the beach and the people we met were friendly and hospitable. The gelatos are to die for, we had one every day we were out. Just a suggestion, the actual address of Bella Vista and some leaflets of the local attractions, restaurants, and supermarket would be helpful. We found 2 big supermarkets just past Tropea on the main road, much better than travelling into Vibo Valencia and they are bigger than the one in Briatico.We had a relaxing time and would recommend Bella Vista to anyone.

“Perfect place for a relaxing and beautiful holiday”
Reviewed 27 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The house was very well equipped and had everything we needed. The bedrooms are air-conditioned, which was a great bonus.
The views from the balcony and the rooftop - both during the day and at night - were stunning.
A car is essential (watch out for the drivers: They can be diabolical). With it you have a choice of truly wonderful beaches and coastal alcoves.
Shopping: The essentials are all available in Zambrone town, a few KM from the house. The only comprehensive supermarket is in Briatico, about 15 minutes by car.
We had a wonderful and relaxing time and would recommend it any time.

“Nice vacation house with beautiful views”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013
1
person found this review helpful

Bella Vista is a nice vacation house, very comfortable and well-equiped with brand-new furniture and kitchen utensils. Very friendly welcome from Beata, providing us with a nice welcome food package.
The house is located outside Zambrone village in the hills together with some other villas. From the two terraces you have beautiful views towards the sea, splendid sunsets! Very pleasant bar and pizzeria at piazza in Zambrone and excellent fish shop down the road.
Just be aware that in high season there is music coming up from one of the hotels at Zambrone Mare, which can be disturbing...
The owner is very helpful and allowed an efficient reservation by e-mail.

Many thanks for your positive feedback and we're really please that you enjoyed your stay at Bella Vista. Thanks also for highlighting that you could hear the activities coming from the hotel in Zambrone Mare, even though it's 1km away from the townhouse. We will definitely highlight it in our property description. Thanks again and hope to see you next year
