San Giorgio Albanese

Via Variboba N24, 2/3 bed townhouse with cantina

Nestled along the rolling hillside set back from the Ionian Sea in southern Italy, San Giorgio Albanese, a 15th century borgo offers a traditional Italian lifestyle. The town is home to around 500 people and only 20 minutes from the beach areas close to Sibiri.

The main street Via Roma is where you’ll find the majority of the towns services. Local shops, bars and a couple of pizzeria/restaurants. A welcoming community, the locals are very friendly and many have a few words or more in English.

Just off from Via Roma is a warren of narrow streets and where we’ll find Via Varuboba. A series of terraced houses, the street is well occupied by locals. Here we have an opportunity for someone wishing to imerse themselves in the local community.

A three storey historic townhouse with a converted frantio is for sale.

Entry from Via Variboba into a lobby with access to the cantina below, main living area to the right and stairs leading to the bedrooms.

The main living area is just over 30 sq mtrs with feature fireplace and doors onto a large terrace around 20 sq mtrs.

Off the lobby steps down to the large cantina and an aladins cave. The cantina is split into two sections. The main area which is around 50 sq mtrs consisting of prep area for salumi, cheese and wine making. A smaller section just over 20 sq mtrs is the barreling and bottling section.

A marble staircase up to the 1st floor and bedrooms and bathroom. There are currently three bedrooms here. Either side of the staircase are two large bedrooms. One with a 5 mtr balcony with sea views.

Sandwiched between these bedrooms is a box bedroom and bathroom. Ideally this would make a large family bathroom and convert the current bathroom into a laundry room. This would then allow for a full sized bath, independent shower, toilet bidet and sink unit. The laundry room would house the washing machine and other facilities.

The property is in excess 180 sq mtrs internally with 25 sq mtrs of external space.

Parking is in the piazza just a few minutes walk from the property.

The town is a short ride to Sila and the Pollino National Park. Skiing during the short winter at Camgliatello with treking, mountain biking during the long summer months.

Nearest airport is Lamezia Terme.
