We ensure that each of our listings feature a photograph of each room and one outside photo of the building where possible. Each listing displays a varied selection of photographs to give a good overview of the property. All our photographs of each property are featured on the listing. 

Overlooking the sea, this imposing building dominates the sea front at Diamante. One of the oldest buildings in a beautiful seaside town, this three storey palazzo is currently under renovation. The external works will be completed in 2016. With two sides of the building already complete it’s not hard to imagine how beautiful this building will be. With many of the original features restored this is a great opportunity to own a real piece of Italian history. 

On the first floor we have a 1 bed apartment for sale which requires remodelling. The apartment is over 40 sqm with a separate kitchen, corridor leading on the right to the large bedroom while on the left a good sized bathroom. At the far end of the corridor is the main living room with tall balcony doors and a great sea view overlooking the beach. Most of the work required is cosmetic. For example, the original floor tile can be buffed up to its original condition. Many of other the original features can be restored. 

Diamante is famous in the area for its murals and peperoncino (chili pepper) festival. A town of 4000 people, the resort swells to a busy seaside town during the summer. Full of bars, cafes, restaurants and shops along a beautiful promenade this really is a diamond along the west coast of Calabria. 


Calabria, up until now, has been untouched by foreign visitors. Italians have been having great holidays here for decades, but it has remained unknown to the rest of the world. Property prices in Calabria are a bargain. 

Not only this but the cost of living here is one of the lowest in Western Europe, with annual bills on many apartments not exceeding €1000, fantastic local cuisine and wines that are light on the pocket and one of the warmest welcomes from the locals you are likely to find. 

Calabria is a magical land with bright blue warm sea and lush high mountains. Around every corner is a new panoramic view. It has something to offer everyone, from beach holidays to skiing in the Sila mountains. 

The climate here is amongst the best in the Mediterranean with long hot summers and very short mild winters. Which means that for 9 months of the year Scalea stays over 20°C. 

The main towns are (from north to south): Praia a mare, Scalea, Diamante, Belvedere Marittimo, Cetraro, Paola and Amantea. The entire coastline has a stunning backdrop of mountain ranges which form the national parks in this part of Calabria (Pollino and Sila). 

The entire area has very little industry and the air is clean and pollution free and the people of Calabria live to a grand old age (one of the best in Europe). The other advantage of being on the west coast is the fantastic sunsets over the sea.
