The breakfasts are magnificent and anything you want will be provided. But above all else its the owners, Biaggio and Sharon who make... More

We recently stayed at this B &B and had a great time. The rooms were modern, clean and the air conditioner worked wonderfully. The owners provided outstanding meals and were exceptional in their willingness to be helpful. I would recommended them to anyone staying in Tropea.

We loved everything! The B&B is about 5 years old but looks brand new. We stayed in the Le Sirene room. The room was clean, nicely decorated and laid out well with plenty of storage. The king size bed was very comfortable. The large bathroom also had two large drawers for storage and a great rain shower with plenty of... More

My husband and I stayed here last week while we explored the delightful small town of Tropea. We had originally planned to stay for three nights but this was extended to five as I became unwell. Sharon and Biagio could not have been kinder. They looked after us beautifully and even interpreted for us at the hospital. Nothing was too... More

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
