The bedrooms both come with wrought iron beds and dark, traditional furniture. The ceiling lights and wall lights are copper traditional effect.
The living room has a cream leather three seat settee (pulls out as a double bed) and single leather chair, also in cream. LCD TV. The property is being sold furnished.
The roof terrace boasts stunning views of both sea and mountains and all the amenities Scalea has to offer. There are several restaurants and bars close by and the beach is a 10 minute walk.
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.
