Welcome to the beauty of southern Italy! I discovered this area while living overseas and immediately fell in love with Calabria and the relaxed way of life in southern Italy. I work in the field of education and lived abroad for 8 years. I lived in Milan, then moved to the United Arab Emirates, then moved to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Southern Italy offers so much for those who love to travel and want to experience the true local flavor and beauty of the Italian culture.
I fell in love with the beauty of the mountains and the ever changing light of the sea. Scalea is between the Naples and Amalfi coast region to the north, and Reggio Calabria/Sicily region to the south. Scalea has a fantastic old town with wonderful cobblestone walkways curling through the historical town. My apartment overlooks the old town and the remains of an 11th century Norman castle. From the balcony you can see the old town, the mountains and the beauty of the sea. I never stop appreciating the beauty of this vista at every time of day.
My condo is about a 15 minute walk to the beach and restaurants are close by. Wandering the old town is charming as well as exploring the many fantastic towns along the coast and mountains. If you enjoy exploring, beaches, hiking, or simply enjoy watching the sea from the balcony, it is a great place to stay.
