Beach front apartments and villas for sale Calabria. North east coast Calabria properties for sale.

Having spent 4 very interesting and informative days looking at property for sale in Calabria southern Italy I am on the plane returning to the UK. I have been viewing apartments and villas for sale in Calabria on the north east coast. Calabria is a province of Italy and it is relatively unknown to most of northern Europe. Calabria is the toe of Italy and it is as far south as you can go on the mainland, only Sicily is further south.

The north east coast of Calabria is perhaps the most unknown part of Calabria for most Europeans. The area has a lot to offer with great beaches, easy access to the mountains of La Sila and Pollino National Parks, great food, and friendly and welcoming local people. There is also a good selection of property for sale in this part of Calabria. True beach front apartments in Calabria are still available on existing developments. There are other beach front developments with resale apartments and townhouses available immediately: you could be enjoying one in just a few weeks!

Detached villas for sale in Calabria are also available in this region and the prices are very reasonable, starting at around 250,000 euro. At the time of writing (April 09) for 349,000 euro there is a very large detached sea view villa for sale in Calabria. Part built with the inside layout still to be constructed it could easily have 6 or maybe 7 bedrooms over 3 floors. Being walking distance to the beach it could easily be a great family home or a B&B as was initially intended.

Alternatively there are a small selection of lovely sea view plots for sale that are suitable for large detached villas starting from around 285,000 euro. Clients can select their own internal finishing’s and customise their villa in many ways.

Want something completely unique? There is a large beach front villa renovation property available that is just a few meters from the beach. This sort of property in Calabria cannot be built anymore because of tighter planning restrictions but there are still a few beach front renovation properties for sale in Calabria. You just need the imagination and the budget to make the dream real.

So why is the area so undiscovered and why are prices so much lower than many other areas. Well this is quite a simple question to answer and it comes down to the lack of a nearby international airport. Currently the closest international airport is Lamezia Terme at about 2.5 hours away. Alternatively there is Bari in Puglia at about 3.5 hours drive. This has understandably deterred many foreign buyers from visiting the area. However Crotone airport is expected to start taking international flights in 2009 or 2010 and Crotone the Airport is only 30 to 45 minutes to the south of where most new property development is taking place.

There are also plans for a brand new international Airport at Sibari. This project has got the go ahead and many people expect it to be ready within three to five years. This will open up the entire north east coast of Calabria and radically increased demand from overseas property buyers.

There are lots of options for people wanting new build, renovation, and Key ready property in Calabria. All it takes is the desire to own a property in Calabria, the finance, a few days visit to this very special destination.
