Existing property owners and indeed those looking to buy a second home in the stunning southern Italian region of Calabria will be pleased to hear that Monarch Airlines has announced that it will be operating new flights to Lamezia Terme for summer 2011.

The new chartered flight service will operate from London Gatwick to Calabria’s main airport Lamezia Terme, on Saturday mornings from 30th April to 29th October 2011. Despite being designated a charter flight, one third of the seats will be made available to passengers to book direct.

Steven Worboys, MD of Italian property experts, Experience International, comments,

“Calabria remains a highly desirable second home destination and these new summer flights will certainly be welcome. With a flight time of around 3 hours, this stunning region of Italy complete with miles of unspoiled pristine sandy beaches, perfect Mediterranean climate, clear turquoise blue seas and rolling hills, makes for an ideal short break as well as location for an extended stay.

The popular resorts of Pizzo and Tropea are set to benefit particularly from these new flights as they are within an hour’s drive of the airport. Property prices in these areas have remained stable despite the recent economic downtown and demand for rental accommodation, especially during the peak summer months from British, Irish, Scandinavian and German holiday makers, is high. A typical 2 bedroom apartment can be expected to rent at up to £500 per week in the high season yielding up to 9% per annum.

One development receiving interest from British buyers is Harbour View. Set in an idyllic position overlooking the coastal town of Tropea which boasts one of the world’s most beautiful beaches attracting thousands of Italian and international tourists each year, the studio, 1 and 2 bed apartments of Harbour View are available from only €59,500. With a swimming pool onsite, poolside bar, landscaped gardens and parking, these completed apartments are ready to move into today and would make an ideal second home or indeed buy to let investment.
