My fiancee and I were celebrating our engagement and found Piccolo Residence online. We just ended our around the world travel and wanted to stay at a place that wasn't a traditional hotel but more like an apartment away from touristy areas. We not only got exactly what we wanted, we got more. Alessandro and his family run the operation better than ANY we have seen on our travels, they treat you like family. The location was perfect with an amazing view of the water and Tropea. We were close enough to Tropea but far enough from the mayhem of the touristy areas, also it was only about 30 mins away from both Capo Vaticano and Pizzo. The apartment was very spacious and clean, exactly what we needed. The roof terrace was very neat with a fantastic view and a reasonably priced bar. Last, I can't say enough about the amazing food we had at the restaurant, the food was absolutely AMAZING! To end my review I want to share with you something that happened to us when leaving the hotel. We did not realize we had left our laptop charger at Piccolo, I got an email from Alessandro letting me know we had left it behind. I emailed him back telling him that I was at our hotel in Florence for two days and Alessandro overnighted it to our hotel. When we tried to settle payment with Alessandro, he told me to buy him a coffee if we ever go back. This is the type of service you will get from Alessandro and his family.
