|Virginia Rogers||I am an American citizen of Italian descent and have had the good fortune to travel to Italy numerous times in my lifetime. This year I decided to purchase a condo in Tropea, Italy so that I will be able to spend extended time in Italy after I retire. I chose Tropea for its beauty and location in Calabria, the area from which my grandparents came. I had the good fortune to find Cristian Buttafuoco and his real estate agency. Cristian guided me throughout the process of looking for a condo and purchasing it. He answered all my questions and worked closely with me, the seller, and my attorney so that the purchase went smoothly. He continues to be there for me whenever I have a question or need regarding my new home. Cristian is excellent in all ways. He is knowledgeable, kind, hard- working, honest, trustworthy, and loyal. I could not have been happier with the service he provided and continues to provide.If anyone is looking to purchase a place or rent a place in the Tropea area, you can do no better than to contact Cristian Buttafuoco. You will be so happy and grateful that you did.

I cannot speak too highly of Cristian Buttafuoco. I would trust him with
We first met Cristian 3 years ago when we came to Tropea and stayed in his
holiday apartment. He met us at the airport and took us to collect a hire car. He
then accompanied us to the villa, and just as we thought we would have to go
out in the dark in a strange town, his mother appeared with dishes of hot food,
which she repeated on a number of occasions during our stay! Throughout our
holiday Cristian helped us to find and organise everything.
Last year we decided that as we had enjoyed Tropea so much we wanted to buy
a property there. Of course, we contacted Cristian, who sent us a selection of
options. In February I flew out, when Cristian again met me at Lamezia, and
invited me to stay in his little house for 3 days. He took me round the
apartments I had said I would like to see, until I found one that my wife and I
wanted to buy. During this time I had meals with his family in their home.
I returned in June, again met by Cristian, who introduced me to the excellent
Tony Blasa, with whom I arranged all the furnishing and fitting of our lovely
flat. Cristian devoted a whole day to taking me round different shops to fully
equip the apartment. He was very helpful in all liaisons necessary for purchases.
Cristian joked that for him selling a property was the easy part; the difficult bit
was afterwards! Sure enough, over more than a year since, he has continued to
give us all the assistance imaginable. He is quick to send and respond to emails
and phone calls, giving clear and invaluable advice and instructions.
He has helped us in the involved process of becoming residents of Tropea,
coming with us to the Municipio, and visiting offices and making arrangements
before and after our stay this time. He helped us in finding and buying a car,
again taking on himself the responsibility for obtaining documents, tax and
We could not have done any of what had to be done without Cristian, who is
unfailingly calm and cheerful, totally reliable, and for whom nothing is too
much trouble. A true guide, companion and friend! ||England||2017-10-01|
|Lars Buntemeyer||Beautiful Location
We, as a couple, spend a very relaxing week in Christians Appartement in Tropea. The appartement is located a ca. 15 min. walk from the center of Tropea which makes it very calm and peaceful with a stunning view of the sea and the Stromboli. The apartement is also very well secured with its own electric gate to the property. Although the train station is in walking distance, I would recommend a rental car to explore other beautiful spots of Kalabria, e.g., the very stunning view at the Cap Vaticano. However, if you want to stay in Tropea during your holiday, a car is not needed since everything is in walking distance, including a beautifuful beach.
I have to mention the amazing garden, which Christian's father is taking care of very well. It's even nicer than on the photos and we were grateful for the many shady spots where we enjoyed breakfast. Christian is an amazing host and was very helpful and friendly during the whole time. There is another guesthouse on the property which he takes care of and he came around almost everyday to make sure everything is ok. Thanks a lot!||Germany||2017-06-30|
|Tim Ellis||This is a brilliant villa to rent. A flexible, supportive, and genuinely friendly owner. And the villa itself is brilliant and as good if not better than the photos and easily accessible, only a 10 minute walk from Tropea centre. Tropea is also wonderful. All in All 10/10||England||2017-06-24|
|Evert||De villa Sea View ligt prachtig bovenop een heuvel met een schitterend uitzicht op de zee en Tropea. Vanuit het huis kun je rustig naar beneden wandelen en loop je in 15 à 20 minuten dwars door het leuke stadje zo naar de zee en haar mooie strand. De klim terug is pittiger, maar goed te doen! Het huis is van alle gemakken voorzien en heeft een mooie tuin met veel bloemen en planten. Tropea heeft heel veel restaurants; je kunt er heerlijk eten. De omgeving is zeer de moeite waard. De afstand van het vliegveld Lamezia is slechts een uur rijden en onderweg kom je leuke plaatsen tegen, zoals Pizzo. Dit huis is een aanrader en Tropea en omgeving ook. Wij waren er van 22 tot 29 april en de temperatuur lag tussen de 20 en 27 graden.||Holland||2017-04-30|
|Andrei Danilescu||Salve. Le 5 stele sono meritate . Siamo una famiglia giovane con un bimbo di 4 anni e abbiamo una certa esperienza nel viaggiare. Tramite Cristian abbiamo trovato una locazione fantastica, che ci ha fatti sentire come a casa. Abbiamo trovato un alloggio pulito e accogliente situato in un posto tranquillo con una vista splendida sul mare.
Cristian ci ha fatto anche da guida, spiegando dove magiare bene, dove fare le spese e il shopping.
C'è ancora tanto da dire .....e soltanto di bene.....
Che altro dire.......questa agenzia vale il le 5 stele. Grazie a Cristian Buttafuoco !
|Rocco Blonda||Abbiamo trascorso due settimane di vacanze a Tropea in un appartamento che abbiamo trovato tramite l'agenzia Buttafuoco..
l'appartamento che ci ha stato proposto, ha superato di gran lunga le nostre aspettative... il Sig. Buttafuoco è una persona seria e molto disponibile
|Aleksandar Sokcic||The host, Christian has been very helpful and welcoming, he was always easy to reach. The hill to get to the house was quite tough to walk up and down every day in the heat, but it was worth it because the house and the view from it was nice. Living up on the hill provided the garden and terass with a breeze at all times which was comfortable in the summer heat. The house was very close to the centre of the city where one can find cute shops, restaurants etc. It was also a walking distance from the beach which was a plus for us. Overall happy with our stay!||Sweden||2016-07-28|
|Vitalija Ruginyte||We just came back from holiday in Tropea and staying at Cristian's villa was a great choice. When we arrived he picked us up from the train station and once we checked in he offered to take us for a food shopping- that was very helpful as we didn't have a car. Villa itself was amazing, beautiful garden and a rooftop terrace where we had our morning coffee. Villa is perfect for a couple or a small family (I stayed with my mum and sister) and it's very clean. Also it had beautiful views, as villa is on the hill you can see all town and the sea. I especially enjoyed the garden, it is really looked after. Having a BBQ and watching the sea at the same time- it can't get any better. It's in a quiet relaxing location, you need to walk up the hill a little bit but it's not far from the town centre- 10 minutes walk. During our stay Cristian was very helpful, he gave us restaurant recommendations and I have to say the food was delicious. There's nothing what not to like about the villa I will be definitely returning there again. Cristian was a great host, he was always there when we needed him and it didn't matter if it was out of work hours. I already reccomended this place to my friends and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in a quiet location with amazing garden and beautiful views.||England||2016-05-30|
