“Great home in a terrific town”

person found this review helpful

We spent a week at this property in early July 2015 - 2 adults and 2 teenage kids. The other reviews posted here are spot on. The house is a newer home, well appointed and it has a terrific view of the city of Tropea. The house has a lovely garden with lemon trees and roses. Cristian was a wonderful host as was his family who drove us to town when needed but also made a number of fabulous lunches for us. Tropea itself is a small coastal town with many great restaurants, a beautiful beach and lots todo and see. Having been to other parts of Italy before, I would highly recommend Calabria as a destination.

We had a wonderful stay in this amazing house in Tropea. The pictures on the website don't even do it justice.)
I highly recommend this property.
The location of the property is really nice. On a clear day you can see Stromboli from balcony.The view is really adorable. It is not far from the center, but it is located in very quite side. So to my opinion it is perfect
The owner is very gentle and kind. Thank you.
We will come back for sure!

we would highly recommend this house as it contained everything we could need and the friendliness and helpfulness of the owner and his family was outstanding.Yes it was a steep climb but that was the price we paid to have such stunning views and you are in the Italian countryside after all.We would certainly return and recommend to all our fiends

“Outside:surprise; inside:disappointment”
Reviewed September 24, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This house has an excellent seaview and perfect Wifi connection.
The access to the house is terrible (road is full of big holes) Underneath the house there is a very busy road.
Inside the house everything is poor: only 1 bathroom ( with a door which didn"t close well) instead of the promised 3; kitchenoutfit with plastic cuttlery, no sufficient ( frying) pans; bad coffesupplies; couches in the living room on which you hardly could sit.
We didn"t expect this at all concerning the height of the rent!

I'm Cristian Buttafuoco Owner of Panoramic house in Tropea.
I would like to dispute this review because these clients (Marianne Dijkstra)blackmail me saying that if I don't give the money back they 'll write a bad review on my house and all this happened at the day of check-out. But during all the week of their vacation they were saying that they were happy to spend their holidays and that
everything was okay.
I was really gentle and polite with them from the beginning as I'm always
with the all clients and as you can see from the others reviews (all of them
excluding the last one are positive and describing the high level of my
service and of the property). I was really shocked to receive this review, because I dont deserve
it and that is not true review. And that is not fair when people are
blackmailing using such methods.
The
information in her review consists of the lies, the things which she described
are not real as you can see from the interior photos of my house and from the
reviews of the other clients.The holes in the street was true but now are repared about insite of the property and busy street she lies.

“Ideal beautiful home and setting for a couple seeking location very close to the historic center of Tropea”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

We are well pleased with our two week stay in the small house on the Buttafuoco's property in Tropea. We combined a Calabrian beach and sight seeing vacation with developing our Italian language skills at the "Piccola Universita' Italiana" in Tropea's historic center. This clean, nicely furnished (including a clothes washing machine) home with a stunning view of the sea and a beautifully designed and well kept garden offered us convenience to the bustle of Tropea in a relaxing setting. While within walking distance to town we were glad that we had rented a car. Each morning we would drive to and park our car at the bottom of their private road and walk the rest of the way of our course in the historic center.
Cristian (and his family) were more than helpful and never intrusive during our stay. Their aide including graciously rescuing us when we had a flat tire and taking time to lead us to a local tire shop for the repair.
We had ample privacy including the small home's roof top terrace. We had some prior concern about sharing garden space with those renting in the main house, but had no problems with our fellow guests. We were able to meet in turn two charming families during their separate one week stay, with the only inconvenience being occasional competition for the internet ban.

Even as Italian-Americans who can not be truly objective about the beauty of Italy, I think it hard to best the pleasure to the eye when in the morning you open your front door and gaze, through a pagoda shaded by olive tree branches, grape vines and bougainvillea and framed by lemon trees, at a vast expanse of blue sea and blue sky.

We spend there 2 weeks with kids (3 and 4 years old). Conditions in the house were good, nothing fancy, but everything you need, for Italy's standards for sure better than average. Very nice and helpful owner. If we go to Tropea again (which is really worth seeing) we would stay at Cristiano's place with pleasure.
