News: Brits give Italy 'two thumbs up'

Fri, 05 Oct 07

Italy has been named as the most popular holiday destination in Europe in a new poll of British tourists...

But that comes as no surprise to property specialist Dennis Onstenk, who is based in Calabria in the south of Italy's stylish 'boot'.

According to Saga, the country is the first choice of 14 per cent of holidaymakers, potentially making it a good option for overseas investors.

The broad appeal of Italy was further highlighted after it was named the preferred option for both 25 to 44-year-olds and people aged above 55.

Commenting on the findings, Dennis Onstenk said, “These results do not surprise me. This summer we have seen more and more British property buyers arrive in Calabria who have been attracted by our affordable property prices, increasing accessibility, beautiful climate and stunning scenery.”

This positive view comes shortly after Barclays stated that Italy was attracting considerable interest from Britons planning to invest in foreign property.
