Along the west coast of Calabria, a first floor apartment with a garden is for sale in Poggio Fiorito, Scalea. This holiday complex is approximately one kilometre from the sea and walking distance from the local supermarket, bar, and swimming pool. There is also a restaurant nearby.
Access to the property is through a private gate, opening out onto a tiled garden area. Outside steps lead to the apartment, which comprises of open plan living, balcony, a recently modernised bathroom and 2 good size bedrooms (one with a balcony). Internally, the apartment is 55 square metres. Parking is close by. The apartment does not come furnished.
On the northern tip of Calabria, along the west coast the seaside resort of Scalea, one of the largest towns in the area offers a warm Calabrian welcome. The town is home to just over 10,000 people but swells with tourists in the summer. Almost 6km of lidos line the beach from Scalea to Santa Maria del Cedro, with plenty of beach activity and entertainment during the day and evening.
The town, originally just a small village on the hillside close to the beach with quaint narrow streets and typically old style Italian housing is still thriving with many investors choosing the character of old Italy and renovating those antique buildings. There are, of course, plenty of re-sale homes and some new builds on modern complexes to cater for a variety of tastes.
Scalea boasts many fine restaurants with fresh fish a big part of the diet and offering along with traditional pasta dishes. The local wine is a fine brew, either red or white and with most of the menu locally grown, reared or brewed the prices are very competitive and easy on the pocket.
Many properties will have access to views with the town surrounded by hills but also close to the sea. Many activities you come to expect from a resort town can be found in Scalea such as rafting, go karting, trips to local attractions and many local festivals throughout the year. With property prices from €12,000, Scalea is certainly worth a look.
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.
