The property is 700M from the beach, 'as the crow flies' but the road winds down the hill so it takes 5-6 mins by car or about 45 mins to walk.
In August there is a free beach minibus service that stops nearby.
The owner is generous with lifts for shopping, beach etc if needed. Zambrone village is a pleasant 20 min walk through vineyards, olive groves and fruit orchards.
There are 2 bar/restaurants very close - One at 60 metres with a good late bar (2 or 3 am, sometimes later), beautiful terrace with great views, good food and lively music. The other, about 10 min walk offers good pizze, traditional Calabrian food and local wines.
Many other bars, restaurants etc within a few minutes drive at Marina Di Zambrone. A local pizzeria will deliver to your door. Some restaurants will even collect and drop you back after the meal!!
The owners are husband & wife. The husband, Enzo is Italian, his wife, Claudia is German and speaks German, Italian & English.
