I am ashamed this review is 8 months late. We stayed with Sharon and her family in April 2015, and they were by far the best and most gracious hosts we had ever encountered anywhere in Italy. The food was excellent, the rooms were modern and comfortable, and Tropea is an idyllic seaside Italian vacation spot that should not be... More

Sharon and Biagio were perfect hosts. The property is a resent renovation and finished with much attention to detail. Very comfortable beds and modern bath. Right in the historic centre of Tropea. Arrived with large vehicle but Biagio was great in navigating us around narrow streets to their private parking area. Excellent recommendations for dinner and a well balanced breakfast... More

My friend and I stayed here in August and loved it! The rooms were very clean, the beds were comfortable and he location was fantastic - in the town centre and walking distance to everything including the beach. Sharon and Biagio were super friendly, kind and helpful and nothing was ever an issue for them. It definitely felt like we... More

Actually feels more like a boutique hotel than a bed and breakfast. Beautifully renovated building that looks old from the outside but totally modernized inside. Sharon and Biagio were wonderful hosts - she came and got us when we were lost outside the historic center and led us to a free parking space. Breakfast was varied and of high quality... More

We knew we had chosen well from the first moment of arriving in Tropea. Our train was an hour late but Sharon and Biagio were still there to pick us up. Our room was clean, fresh and inviting, our balcony gave us a wonderful window into the everyday Tropea at all hours of the day and night and the double... More

Clean, up to date, well located, very nice young couple operate it. They are attentive. Great breakfast, parking not a problem/ Rooms are modern. Internet worked great. We would stay there again. May be a little tough if you couldn't handle some stairs but that would go for almost anywhere at a B&B in Italy

This is a small b & b located in the historic section of Tropea with about a 10 minute walk to the beach. Sharon and Biagio provided a very high standard service, with an excellent breakfast. Our room and bathroom was spotlessly clean, spacious and comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.

You know that accommodation is really good when it plays an important part in your happy memories of a holiday. Sharon and Biagio were impeccable hosts...always friendly, helpful and kind. They offered good sight-seeing advice and directed us to some of the best restaurants. Breakfast was a highlight, with delicious homemade cakes and a wide selection of cold meats and... More
