Find an Italian mortgage for a property abroad in the heart of the Amalfi coast
Located in the south western region of Campania, the Amalfi Coast provides the perfect place for your Italian mortgage. Thanks to its extraordinary beauty and iconic medieval, cliff-side, fishing villages, it is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and consequently when properties do come on the market, they can be pricey. That said, with the current economic climate, good value properties can be found at reasonable prices.
Attracting celebrities for centuries, including Greta Garbo, D.H Lawrence and Richard Wagner, the beautiful town of Ravello is the place where dreams are made. Set in the hills a few kilometres above Amalfi, Ravello offers superb views of the tiny fishing villages and the rich blue Mediterranean Sea below. Although small, the town boasts a spectacular 11th century Cathedral, or Duomo, as well as the 11th century Villa Cimbrone and 13th century Villa Rufolo. These ancient sites give the town a charmingly archaic feel making it easy to see how it inspired so many great artists.
Find an Italian mortgage to visit the beautiful gardens in Ravello
Seemingly every villa in Ravello has picturesque gardens, but none can match the stunning beauty that can be found at Villas Cimbrone and Rufolo which house some of the finest gardens in Italy. Their perfectly laid-out flower beds, palm trees, sculptures and fountains bring in hundreds of visitors every year, all clamouring to get a glimpse of the meticulously tended gardens.
Explore the Amalfi coast with an Italian mortgage
Along the winding roads that twist and turn along the coastline, you will reach the other gems that line the Amalfi coast – Positano, Sorrento and Amalfi itself. All of these locations would make idyllic locations for a property abroad with their breathtaking scenery and wonderfully warm climate. If you are planning on finding a buy-to-let property, the Amalfi coast would be a great choice due to its unrelenting popularity with tourists from all over the world, all seeking to enjoy the temperate weather, magnificent beaches and fabulous fresh food.
The cuisine of the Campania region is in many ways thought of as the food of Italy. Birthplace of the modern pizza and home to mozzarella di buffalo Campania, as with the rest of Italian cuisine, the food is fresh, made from local ingredients and full of incredible flavours. Typical meals include fresh fish caught from the local fishing villages, fried in locally produced olive oil with a honey laced pastry for dessert.
