useful information

On your journey from the airport, you may wish to stop at a supermarket or local store for bottled water plus any fresh produce ie milk, bread, butter etc.
There is also a small mini –market a short stroll from our apartment.

ON ARRIVAL....

On your arrival into Joppolo, the first landmark on your right should be a bar/cafe called “ BAR ON THE ROAD”. If you drive another 300 metres or so, you will see a new development of 4 shops. Take the first right down a narrow incline, followed by another right, 20 metres down and just before the security gates, turn left...You have arrived! Kindly park to the right hand side. 

THE KEYS FOR THE APARTMENT ARE KEPT WITH STEFANO AT THE HOUSE WHICH IS DIRECTLY THROUGH THE SECURITY GATES.  IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, STEFANO CAN BE CONTACTED..... 
Tel 39 3393894470

Don't forget to return the keys to Stefano on your departure (completion of your holida​​​​​​​y)






You will find our apartment (number 6) at the top of the stairs. When opening the door, please turn the key 4 times to the left and pull the knob towards you and twist.

On entry to the apartment, you are advised to run all the cold water taps for 5-10 minutes.

Please keep a key on you at all times, because once the door is closed, it locks automatically. In the event of an emergency, a spare key is kept next door which is through the security gates.

There is a DVD player, please bring your own discs. There is also an iPod docking station available for your enjoyment....don`t forget your iPod!

A travel cot is readily available and is stored in the twin bunk bedroom wardrobes.


Toilet rolls etc should be in the apartment, please replace for the next guests.

In order to keep fresh air in the rooms at all times, when retiring to bed, keep the glass doors open and the louvre doors closed but leave the lower panels opened diagonally. This will not only ensure that you get a peaceful night`s sleep but it will also keep out any mosquitos from flying in. You will also find that it is better to leave the windows in this position, even when leaving the apartment.

In the event of any of the services (electric, gas, water etc) being turned off for safety reasons, you will find the various service boxes to the right at the bottom of the stairs...Our apartment is numbered M6.

Smoking is only permitted on the balconies, please use the ash trays provided.

In order to avoid unnecessary accidents, please ensure that when any or all of the windows are open, all internal doors, including wardrobes, must be closed!!! This is mainly due to undetectable sea breezes that can suddenly blow a door to slam which creates enough impact to shatter a mirror or a window. Please remember the golden rule.....
WINDOWS OPEN=DOORS CLOSED!!!

Kindly put all your litter/waste in knotted carrier bags and drop in wheelie bins which are located directly opposite the “BAR ON THE ROAD”. This will only apply until our own bins are in place.

It would be greatly appreciated, prior to your departure if you have the time...to strip the beds, depositing all dirty towels into the laundry basket in the hall-way which will help the cleaners to prepare for the next guests.

Please dispose of all food and any opened bottles of drink from the fridge and ensure that the fridge door is left open.

Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that your stay is most enjoyable, please leave it in the same way for our next guests.

WISHING YOU ALL A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY AND LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL AGAIN....THANK YOU!

What Clients Say

"Review of the apartartment at Joppolo". Whilst most of our family holidays around the Med' have been with a growing family, our 1 regret was not finding this apartment sooner. Spacious, airy, and genuinely luxurious, leather sofas, the bedrooms, unlike so many European 'doubles', which are normally 2 singles pushed together. A great third bedroom for the kids or pals staying over. The kitchen was a boon for knocking together meals from the freshest of local ingredients. The view was 'to die for' a genuine panoramic vista, look closely at the seashore below, you may well spot the dolphins sporting in the shallows. The aircon was a blessing when the mercury hit 80F. And the tiny local bar about 100 mts up the road had both chilled beer and fantastic gelati to carry home for the sundowners on the balcony. Bellissima! Bravo to Solhols for a trip to remember.

"The word 'jewel' when describing holiday resorts is often over-employed, not here!!!!" Having travelled extensively, both for business & pleasure we've seen some sights, however, having arrived at night nothing could have prepared us for the view from the balcony in the morning, Mount Etna in the distance, snowcapped and gleaming in the morning sun. The little local train running along the single track at the foot of the hill directly below us hugging the shoreline away to the fabulously pretty town of Tropea. The evening brought one of the most amazing sunsets ( over Stromboli ) then it happened again each night!
Friendly natives??? The locals are some of the most pleasant individuals it has been my good fortune to meet....anywhere. Our only regret was the trip only lasted 10 days.
Can't wait to return for round two. When you do decide to go, please enjoy one of the most splendid places, the climate, scenery, enviroment. Truly a jewel.  Ps 80 degrees farenheit in spring.

This is a first rate apartment. It is totally as described in the advertising, if not better. The views over the sea are fantastic, it is a wonderful place to relax when you need a break plus access to all the wonderful countryside this part of Italy has to offer. Plus theres all the water sports, visits to small fishing villages, beautiful beaches and if you have a car do not miss the town Tropea a few miles to the north. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Adrian Meadows

My Review of the apartartment at Joppolo: Lovely! Well-equipped and spacious apartment near to some really great places in this relatively undiscovered part of Italy. Good-sized bedrooms, with large balconies for enjoying the sea views. Decent sofas too! (How often have you rented a holiday apartment and found the sofas specially designed to be uncomfortable!?).
Car hire is pretty essential, as is a decent satnav - and a steady nerve to cope with the windy roads...and Italian drivers! Round the corner from a pretty well-stocked mini-market, and a few minutes' walk to an excellent bar/wood fired pizza restaurant.

Where should we just start and where stop? The communication between Peter + Steven and us was perfect from the beginning to the end (via e-mail), we always had the feeling that you wanted the best for us. When we arrived the apartment was very clean, it is equipped with everything you need for everyday life, it is really all there. The rooms are very spacious and very well equipped. It is not possible to summarize everything in the description. The view from the balcony is indescribably beautiful. The location is very good and quiet. We were there with our 4 children between 9 and 18 years. A car is an advantage. Tropea, Capo Vaticano, Scilla, Pizzo etc. are all within easy driving distance. The people are all very helpful and with Stefano and his great family Peter & Steven have an ace up their sleeve. We recommend the accommodation 100%. If you have a problem, Stefano is always ready to help. He speaks only Italian but thanks (Hidden by Airbnb) and our hand signals we got along well. A small suggestion for improvement: In the age of technology, one should give thought to W-Lan. Value for money: very good. If we are allowed, we will come back. Thank you
