Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: I especially love Pizzo because of the sea view, mountains, and its small town atmosphere, which reminds me a little bit of where I was born and raised. I work as a Registered Nurse and always dreamed of living in Italy, and now I am able to do this part time. I believe you can do what ever you really want to do if you set your mind to it.

Why Pizzo VV, Italy:
My Italian apartment is in Calabria and is nestled between a mountain to the east, and the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west. Both very important to me. The property is in southern Italy, still very traditional in it's old Italian ways. Italian spoken here, little English. There is a local farmers market, bakery, butchers and small grocers. The people believe in family and tell me even a pizza is made for you with love.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
I rent a car and take frequent day trips. I have especially enjoyed the mountains of Serra San Brunno. I have been to the Sila Mountains to a mushroom festival, to Paola to a chocolate festival, to Sicily several times, to Semanara where I viewed a famous Black Madonna, to Reggio Calabria to view the Riacci Bronzes. And many more... Learning Italian, Mediterranean Diet, Sunshine.......Sunshine............ Cappuccinos............ Local Fish for dinner,.........Gelato in many flavors. Beautiful people, dinner invitations that start at 8pm and get over at midnight. Olive groves, and swimming at the sea.
