Calabria’s coastline is among the most unspoilt – and affordable – in Europe. Laura Latham on why now is the time to find bargain bliss at the tip of Italy’s boot

Miles of white sand, clean seas and untamed mountains – it’s hard to believe that an area offering all this stayed off the well-beaten tourist track for so long.

Where tour operators lead, the property market follows, and Calabria is widely tipped to be the next investment hot-spot.
