Appartamenti Villa Garden

Apartments with swimming pool in the hills above Tropea

Just above Tropea you find a quiet little paradise, the “Villa Garden” at Gasponi. Ten pretty apartments surrounded by a large garden with swimming pool, fruit and olive trees and many flowers. From the swimming pool you have a fantastic view over the coast and the sea.


At the edge of the village of Gasponi is the small quiet paradise "Villa Garden" for vacationers looking for relax and nature away from mass tourism. It originally belongs to the farm stables were in 2006/10 it was converted into 7 pretty apartments with a pool. In the last 10 years, the facility has been lovingly maintained, repeatedly improved in details and supplemented by another 4 apartments. The complex is run by Vincenzo, the eldest son of the family. Meanwhile, he can proudly look at numerous regular guests who like to come back every year. A building on the edge of the area has been converted into a small family-run trattoria, so since 2018 it has not only been possible to rent holiday apartments, but also to book the comfort of b&b or half-board. Prices on request.

You can choose from apartments of different sizes, from small monolocals with double bed, kitchen and bathroom, to several apartments with one or two bedrooms, to a three bedroom apartment. All apartments have satellite TV, a kitchen with gas stove and fridge and bathroom with shower. The approximately 20,000 m² property is beautifully situated on a hill, from which you overlook a large part of the coast and the sea. Nestled in the green hills and close to a river valley, the hot temperatures are bearable even in midsummer. In the evening there is almost always a fresh breeze and the nights are pleasantly cool. The houses are well insulated against heat and cold due to their very thick walls and double-glazed windows.The small complex includes a swimming pool with sun loungers, a lawn with slide and swing for the younger guests, a viewing area with tables and benches for a romantic sunset and two shared barbecue areas. Two washing machines and parking spaces are at your disposal. All this is included in the price.

Before moving to Rome, I and my partner lived with our daughters born in 2007 and 2010, 4 cats and a dog for 4 years in one of the apartments in the "Villa Garden". For us the place was like a little paradise, away from the hustle and bustle that flooded the coast in the summer months and with a swimming pool that our kids loved as a change from the beach and the sea. The owner, who has many Italian holidaymakers in the months of July and August, is looking forward to Northern European guests in the low season. So I have this small plant in my program after moving to the big city. The "Villa Garden" is the ideal place for holidays with children, who can blow away healthy, Calabrian sea and country air away from the big city life and for people who need rest and relaxation, surrounded by the most beautiful nature. In addition, four-legged friends are welcome by appointment.

Information on the location

The "Villa Garden" is located on the outskirts of Gasponi, an authentic Calabrian village, where you can enjoy your holiday in absolute peace, clean air and nature. Tropea, Calabria's most popular town, you can reach in 5 minutes by car or in a 30 minutes walk downhill (coming back up the steep path takes about 45 minutes).
Before moving to Rome in 2013 my partner and I, our 2007 and 2010-born daughters, four cats and a dog lived in one of the apartments in the "Villa Garden" and enjoyed the peace and nature that surrounded us. It is a place far away from the hype that floods the coast during the summer months and located on the hill nearby a little river it is also a place with cooler temperatures in the warmer season.
