Talking Any Bored Brits in Calabria?

Is There Anyone Out There?

We are two British women living in Calabria, in a fishing village just south of Tropea. We have lived here for three years now and although speak passable Italian lack a little "easy" conversation.

(Advertising line deleted)

We would be interested in forming a social "club" for any like minded Brits. You know the sort of thing, meeting up, catching up and generally have a good "ole" fashioned chat.

Hello Ladies, I am planning to visit Calabria , with a view to possibly buying there, I would probably be coming on my own, and would like to rent a place to stay which would be a good base for looking around, and seeing the area. I've never driven abroad before,and am quite nervous about doing this on my own - if you have any ideas of a good location for me which would feel safe , with shops,banks etc & within easy reach of public transport - I would be grateful for any information you could give me. How have you settled there and are you glad you made the move?

Thanks

Hello there, it is wonderful that there is a site for people living in Calabria. My husband and I are planning to move to Italy in the near future, maybe 2 years from now and we have visited various regions of Italy. We plan on visiting Calabria in July. How do you like it there? Are you concerned with the problem of earthquakes in the area? Also, would you know of coastal towns that are low elevations? We love the sea and the mountains and the ideal place would be somewhere with a view of the sea, not far, and not a curvy road to go down from a mountaintop. We want to grow old inthe town we choose and there will be a point in whcih we need to walk everywhere when we cannot drive. We would like to live not too far from a large city. Is there an advantage to the east or west coast of Calabria? We live in the United States, in New York State. I look forward to hearing your responses.
Thank you.
MaryAnn

Hello, Anita, my husband and I are coming to Calabria in July to see if it is the region for us to live in for good. What towns canyou suggest? I cannot see myself on a desolate beach nor a high mountain too hard to drive down. Any thoughts?
