Ciao!

Welcome to Super Savvy Travelers, LLC. We are Chris and Pete Sobolev.

We established Super Savvy Travelers to provide personalized travel experiences in Italy, and because of very high demand, have recently branched out into helping people find and purchase their dream homes in Italy and to move there.

Our YouTube channel is exploding! We have many videos on purchasing your home in Italy (for as little as one Euro!) and moving to Italy. We also feature videos on the beautiful places we see and experiences we are lucky to have as homeowners in Italy!

Here’s a sample video covering the truth about 1-Euro Italian houses:

Chris is a licensed California real estate professional and with her knowledge of real estate in general, and our combined knowledge of the Italian property market and the Italian purchase and renovation processes, we have jumped in to help people find their dream home in Italy.

Here’s a video about our story and how we obtained our Italian dream (which you can too!):

Together we have purchased and renovated several properties in Italy. Our newest venture is Casa Cristina, a beauty steps in Santa Domenica Talao’s historic center. Casa Cristina is an early 18th century beauty with fabulous bones and will be renovated to house 6 vacation rental units, including one complete apartment for traveling families.

We have been quite successful in helping people transition to an Italian lifestyle, as several of our clients have found properties through us. We provide hands-on assistance and guide you through the process from start to finish, pointing you to the reliable Italian professionals that are a part of our team.

We spend much of our time at our second home in Santa Domenica Talao in Calabria, Italy, and through this have gained much knowledge and experience in Italy.

And of course, if you want to see the real Italy, we can book photographers’ tours, culinary tours, shopping tours or any tour you could possibly dream up, through our extensive network of contacts and suppliers.

We are a top reviewer on Tripadvisor and you can read our reviews here:

Contact us today. Let’s find your dream property!

Ciao!

About Us

In life, there are essentially two things that we all treasure above anything  else: experiences, and connection with others.

Since we landed here in 2011, we have created relationships with professionals who are experts in their fields of home purchase, renovations, immigration and other legal issues and all aspects of relocation to Italy.

We are not real estate agents in Italy, we are consultants who select the best people in all appropriate professions and match our clients with the correct professionals to meet their specific needs.

in 2011, we purchased a home in Santa Domenica Talao in Calabria, Italy.  It has been a treasure trove of new and wonderful experiences and lifelong friendships.

Our mission, once we arrived here in Calabria has been to share the unspoiled beauty, food and culture of this region with our friends from America and other countries.

Our YouTube channel, Super Savvy Travelers, LLC has given us the opportunity  really promote this amazing region of Italy with you.

Pete Sobolev

Together we can help you make your Italian dreams come true.
