time there remains an assortment of homes available to potential investors. It is in this particular context that finds its
natural position the project "Marvellous Calitri". This offer presents a real opportunity to become the owner of one of the
most beautiful properties in the old hamlet of Calitri, at the same time giving potential investors the chance of getting
a foot on the property ladder in this part of Italy which is in the process of being developed as a major tourist attraction.

population will benefit from the economy produced by tourism and work for that showing all its warmth and hospitality.
Why choose Calitri
Calitri is a little village situated in the middle of three regions of the South of Italy: Campania, Puglia
& Basilicata. The old hamlet benefits from a good exposure facing South-East. It is composed of a maze of tangled little
streets which all start from the head of the hill which was the old castle. All corners of the old hamlet are soaked in history,
culture and traditions. In fact, Calitri has very old origins, older than the medieval era, even today; it has a classic feel
of that era. There are lots of interests unique to the ‘Calitrian’ people such as their culinary delicacies unique
to Calitri: Calitri has its own gastronomic speciality’s produced locally in the traditional way, especially cheese
and wine, local dishes are based on traditional cooking and good old fashioned methods. Calitri also boasts many beautiful
Mediterranean flowers; exquisite arts and a strong tradition in
ceramic and wood handmade works, still represented in
the many workshops that are in Calitri. There is also a wide range of nature to suit all; Calitri is situated in a very lavish
naturally ‘green’ area.
Investing in Calitri means being part of a project for
tourism development, strongly wanted for the internal areas of the South of Italy. You could be one of the pioneers in this
largely unspoilt areas of Italy, the Italian government and European Community have committed themselves to developing the
south of Italy into a major tourist area, there are short term and long term plans for the growth of the entire area and it
is expected to be a major tourist destination within the next few years.
Our selection of homes was made thinking of the best
interests of our clients. We have recently acquired more properties and have available, some of the best homes in the old
hamlet, bright, comfortable spacious, open view balconies and terraces; these are just some of the features and structural
characteristics of some of the homes chosen for you. Any restorations will be made following old traditional country methods
developed over centuries in the south of Italy. In fact, all materials that will be used are of the highest Italian quality:
Italian cotto (terracotta) for floors, distinguished tiles for bathrooms and kitchens (if you like you can also choose from
a selection of handmade ceramic tiles). Furnishings will all be in classic Italian style made from good quality wood.
The final result will be a comfortable home decorated
and furnished in the best of Italian style. If you have ever dreamed of owning your own home in an unspoilt region of Italy
this is your opportunity, all that you have dreamed of is now within your reach.
As we have such a varied selection of homes all of our
house prices will be made based on the size of the house and restorations work, if needed.
Further options are always available from those initially
offered, we are constantly looking at and negotiating new properties.
