The San Lucido Beach Resort is a new, yet established development with phase 1 & 2 both completed in 2009 -2010. Phase 3 is nearing completion. The resort is situated right by the beach, just a couple of minutes walk, and is to be found just south of the village of San Lucido on the glorious western coast of Calabria facing the turquoise waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is located in the province of Cosenza.
The development itself stands on about 4 hectares and consists of three phases of properties, it has access to a sandy beach (with some parts small stones and typical of this part of the coast).
There is a large communal swimming pool for the residents and guests, a restaurant, fully serviced reception desk and some sporting facilities (tennis courts). On-site management and rental facility for owners means these properties are perfect for family holiday homes or investment.
The apartment for sale is shown in the above photo; all 3 balconies form one large private terrace. Accommodation from left to right; living area/kitchen/diner, bathroom, bedroom 1, bedroom 2.
This apartment is located in a semi-circular/horsesh block which surrounds the pool area. The unusual shape and structure has been designed to resemble the Coliseum in Rome.
The accommodation provides 2 bedrooms, both with doors onto the balcony/terrace, a tiled bathroom with shower, a spacious open plan kitchen/diner/living area also with doors onto the balcony/terrace, and large balcony/terrace running the length of the apartment.
The apartment is just one floor up and situated on the outer side of the semi-circular block affording lovely uninterrupted mountain views. (Please note the apartment is not pool facing). Located on the end of the block it has an open covered area below and no accommodation above, so it has only apartments on the same level adjoining it to the side and behind.
The apartment is being sold fully furnished with kitchenette and air conditioning. Ideal for family holidays, the development has good rental potential with many owners already benefitting from rental incomes.
Cosenza is the major city of the area and is about 20km distance; the popular seaside town of Paola is just 8 km away.
There are excellent transport links; road, rail and air. Lamezia Terme International airport is just 50km drive south on either the main coast road or via the motorway. Naples airport is quite some distance further, but none the less accessible by road or rail.
There are major road links to Sicily and Reggio Calabria in the south and Naples and Rome further north. A main rail link follows the coast with the nearest railway station at Paola or Cosenza.
Nearby are many other coastal towns to visit such as Fuscaldo, Fiumefreddo and Amantea. With a backdrop of stunning mountain scenery and hill top villages, plus boat trips to the Aeolian Islands there are a wealth of places to visit and enjoy in the area. Hiking is popular in the mountains of the Sila Grande around Lorica some 45 km distance, and there are ski resorts in the winter time.
The entire coast of Calabria, as in many other parts of Italy, is well served by the coastal railway service and frequently this rail line runs parallel or close to the beach. The beach at San Lucido is accessed very easily from the resort via a designated underpass under the line, it should be noted that this is very often the case with the majority of seaside town and property in the region.
