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!
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
Once again Alessandro & his team under the guidance of Yvonne have done a wonderful job. As always, they are clean workers who do a great job and at reasonable cost. They are reliable and the work is of high quality. Many thanks.
Dear Yvonne, we cannot Thank You enough for the excellent service regarding our new bathroom. From start to finish you were invaluable offering us support, help and advice. We are thrilled with the standard of work and finish provided by Alessandro and his team. Thanks again Yvonne. We are looking forward to our next project.
We have engaged Calabria Property Services to manage our property in Calabria, this includes legal, municipal, utilities and maintenance. As well as the day-to-day running of our holiday home, including lettings, Calabria Property Services have carried out some major improvements on our behalf. These include installation of a wood pellet-burning stove, new shower screen, brick barbecue, re-locating satellite dish, and complete interior decoration. We cannot commend highly enough the way all of this work has been carried out by Alessandro and his team, ably managed by Yvonne, everything has been done to the highest standard and very professionally. We would recommend them to anyone who needs property management services in Calabria.
My wife and I discovered Calabria Property Services earlier this year and visited Calabria in April. Within 3 days Yvonne had shown us several properties and we had agreed to buy our retreat in the mountains. We speak no Italian at the moment and have had to rely on Yvonne and her team. They have helped us arrange all the services that we have requested hotel, Bank account, surveyor, solicitor, English translator. We completed the final transaction in September and they are now helping to arrange our programmed update of our property. They are a helpful, professional and extremely friendly team of people who I have no hesitation in recommending.
Having never been to Italy before I was a bit sceptical about the whole process especially with not speaking the language but after a very short time I realised I was in very good hands. With all their local knowledge and expertise the whole process went without a hitch. They even sorted out some renovation mods that i wanted doing. Sorted out my airport transfer and the legal side of things as well, Fantastic or what? I strongly recommend them.
I used Calabria Property Services on a recent visit and was very impressed with the professionalism from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble. I did not get fixed up on this occasion but already have planned a return trip and am looking forward to using them again.
