The Calabresi are incredibly proud of their local cuisine with fish being a speciality together with a variety of salami, cheeses and spicing it up with the local pepperoncino. There are also foods grown specifically in certain areas, eg. Pomodoro di Belmonte, a delicious tomato particular to Belmonte Calabro.
Wine also features greatly with some great ones to chose from. Many food festivals and markets are hosted throughout the year to tempt the taste buds.
If this has tempted you to purchase your own small corner of paradise with a holiday home, renovation project or permanent family home, Calabria Property Services can help!
A few years ago we met Yvonne and we asked her to take care of the property management for our house in Calabria (bill payments, regular checks,...). We are still happy about that decision, giving us peace of mind when we are not in Italy. When we bought the property, we knew that a restoration of the outside would be necessary in the coming years. We talked this through with Yvonne and together with Alessandro - who visited the house several times to see how the renovation could be done in the most cost-efficient way - we received a quote for the renovation of the roof, terraces, walls and pillars. We are delighted by the result and way the renovation was treated by the full team: choosing materials, helping us with the geometra, advising us during the renovation process and receiving a daily update with pictures of the work done. What a comfortable feeling, knowing that someone is treating your property as it would be hers. Thanks again to the full renovation team and there's one thing sure...for the renovation of the inside, we know who we will contact... Erwin & Tinne, Belgium
We decided to have the whole house painted and the beams & woodwork stained - a huge job!. It was carried out professionally and efficiently and left very clean - which was a bonus. The quality of the staining on that amount of wood is excellent and we are very pleased with the result. Thanks to Yvonne, Alessandro and the team.
I just want to thank Yvonne and all the team for the quick and easy sale of our apartment in Calabria. So Happy with the professional service Thank you . Jim and Mary.
I could not have managed buying my apartment without Yvonne. From viewing the property to the final signing at the notary's office she was on my side, organising all and making sure that everything was in order. I highly recommend her services which are outstanding from start to finish. Follow up services have ensured a carefree home in this beautiful part of the world..
We decided to go for two major bathroom renovations. Most of it decided and ordered before we left for home in Sweden, but with lots of details still to be sorted out. Then came the Coronavirus. Still, when I came back in July everything was finished to our satisfaction. After the lockdown had finished Yvonne sorted out all the details via phone calls & video chat, and Alessandro and his professional team had done the work in their usual thorough way. Thanks Yvonne, for all the hard work!
We have had a few projects on our property recently, all of which have been organised through Calabria Property Services, including replacement and commissioning of a new gas central heating boiler, removal, repair/replace and paint of balcony railings as well as internal paint works. All of these works were carried out with the minimum of fuss and stress to us and expedited in a very professional way by Yvonne and her team lead by Alessandro - Many thanks.
All in all, we are very pleased with the services received from Calabria Property Services and their team of reliable collaborators and would highly recommend them to anyone planning to buy in this part of Calabria. PS. We love our new life/ retirement in Calabria
