San Nicola Arcella (Calabria)

San Nicola Arcella is a town and comune in the province of Cosenza in the Calabria region of southern Italy. The village rises on the edge of a steep cliff, overlooking the sea and the wonderful landscape of the Gulf of Policastro. The beaches are nestled in the rock coast, that is a part of the Riviera dei Cedri (Cedars Riviera) so-called for the presence of the characteristic fruits. Under the cliff, a natural harbor lies and, in summer, the small beach offers bathing facilities. At the borders with Scalea, the wild and craggy Capo Scalea stands. It is a small promontory sloping to the sea through some granite blocks.

Hello!

I am looking to buying a rental apartment in Scalea.   Does this area get a lot of tourists in summer? Are there olany builders in the area whi can help with the renovation of the place?

@mpatters asks:

Hi there,

I am commencing the process of buying a house that I have found near to Tropea in Calabria. Are there any English-speakers out there who can help with introductions to expats who have previously done the same, or recommendations for lawyers and architects.
