The newly renovated "Dependance Delle Grazie" is our largest apartment and is located in the same house as our "Studio Bellavista". The apartment is on the upper floor with two levels and a spacious and bright floor space of about 125 sqm (1,345 sq ft). The interior is furnished in contemporary and antique style with Mediterranean floor tiles and wooden parquet. The walls are decorated with artworks from three local artists. From the balconies and the private roof terrace you can see the Castello Murat, Pizzo Marina, the beach, the sea and stunning ever changing sunsets. From here it's just 50 meters down the street to the lively piazza with a good choice of bars, shops and restaurants, and a 10 minutes walk to the beach. The Dependance sleeps 2 to 5 guests.


The entrance to the Dependance is a few steps up a staircase on the first floor. There are two private bedrooms. The large master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and a small balcony facing the street. The second smaller bedroom has a balcony with sea views and is furnished with a single bed that transforms into a queen size double bed. A sofa bed and a work desk are upstairs at the galleria under the roof and can be reached from the stairways in the living room. The private rooftop terrace offers stunning views over the sea, the piazza and the roofs of the centro storico and Pizzo Marina. The balconies of the living/dining area and the kitchen are facing the sea as well. 

On clear days you can spot the active volcano Stromboli, which is part of the Eolie island group of Sicily in the Tyrrhenian Sea - which makes the sunsets even more spectacular.  

During the renovation natural stone walls were discovered and preserved as well as some wooden beams and ceilings. We used special material and double windows for insulation.

You can reach the Dependence by car in about 30 min from Lamezia international airport (SUF). The Piazza della Repubblica, the main piazza in the historic centre of Pizzo, is less than 1 minute walk away. From the Dependence to the beach at the Marina it is just a 10 minutes walk. Everything you might need during your stay is within walking distance: bars, restaurants, fresh market and shops. You actually do not need a car while in Pizzo. From April to October there are usually "Ape"-taxis connecting the different areas of Pizzo - which are La Marinella, Piedigrotta, Centro Storico, and La Marina. If you want to rent a car, the nearest car rental agents are at Lamezia airport. Scooters can be organised to be dropped and picked up in Pizzo (from Parghelia / Tropea). If you want to book a car park please contact us in advance.

From Pizzo you can explore and discover the beautiful Costa degli Dei, the "Coast of the Gods" - with its crystal clear, turquoise sea and many different beaches, as well as the many little villages with Greek history, scattered over gentle Calabrian highlands with thousands of olive trees and forests. See our section about Calabria.

The Dependence sleeps 2 - 5 persons. Please note, no pets are allowed. The Dependence is not suitable for small children and people with restricted moving ability. No smoking inside, only outside on the terrace.

We can organise for you a pick-up service from the airport or train station at extra charge. Please let us know asap. - Please contact us at least 2 - 3 days prior to your arrival to agree on a key-hand-over-time. Check-in is from 15.00 to 21.00. Many thanks and see you in Pizzo!

What our guest say about their stay at the Dependance:

Ich war im Juli mit meiner Familie das erste Mal in Kalabrien. Die Lage von Pizzo, die wunderschöne Bucht, der Blick auf den Stromboli, die unmittelbare Nähe zur Piazza, die nie richtig schläft, wird erst in Kombination mit diesem Haus vollkommen. Die Tür öffnet sich, und man ist begeistert vom liebevoll gestalteten Ambiente. Nichts deutet auf Ferienwohnung. Hochwertige Ausstattung von den Böden, über die Möbel bis hin zur Kunst, die zum Teil von ortsansässigen klassischen oder zeitgenössischen Künstlern bezogen wurde. Beim sensationellen Ausblick verschlägt es einem aber dann ganz den Atem. Mit einem Glas Wein auf der Dachterrasse, Brot, Käse und Gemüse vom Händler um die Ecke muss man sich schon wirklich kneifen, um zu begreifen, dass man das live erlebt!!
— Cat from Berlin
This completely renovated Italian house is farout the most beautiful one we have ever stayed in on our trips through Italy! The pictures already give you a good idea but in reality it is even more spacious and luxurious. Close by the center of Pizzo yet very peaceful. The roof terrace view is just spectacular and was our favorite. Every evening we enjoyed a spectacular sunset over the ocean with a view of the Stromboli vulcano at the horizon. The beach down the steps was the perfect place to relax, cool down in the water and enjoy the sun. In short, a big recommendation for a peaceful vacation. We enjoyed it very much !
— Digno from Belgium
The place is fantastic! Views from the 4 balconies breathtaking. Very spacious for our family of 5, top location near the center, 4 minutes walk to the beach. Susan and her crew very attentive. A garage for parking included, turned out to be a bonus due to limited street parking. Very highly recommended.
— Torben from Danmark
Our stay in Pizzo was a memorable one. Big thanks to Susan, the owner and her family for making feeling us welcome and introducing the city. If we are going to Pizzo again, we would definitely choose this apartment due to its owners’ professional and friendly approach, perfect location and convenience of the apartment. We would also like to hire a car to explore the area around Pizzo. Thank you!!!
