The Italian government is selling off a selection of its state-owned properties in an ambitious plan to raise €1.2billion. Most exciting are the buildings of historic interest and those in prime city centre locations.
In just a few months, Sally and Jeremy, from Bath, have gone from dreaming of a holiday home in Italy to having the keys to their own apartment in beautiful Liguria in hand. They told us about their property search, their plans for the future and how an introduction to the right estate agent helped smooth the path immensely.
Italian style can be summed up as understated timeless luxury. Italians make glamour look effortless. They can put a crisp white shirt and jacket with a pair of brand name jeans, and look like a movie star. Whether making clothes or furniture you will find simple stylish lines, quality materials and great workmanship. Italian designers, artists, craftspeople and furniture makers have a passion for what they do.
We’ve all heard the stories, gorgeous Italian properties for one euro, but is it true? Well, it is for this property in Emilia-Romagna, about an hour’s drive from Bologna. Of course there are strings attached. About 1.5 million strings, in fact. But it still represents an awesome opportunity to create anything from a stately home to a hotel or apartment complex, all to your own personal taste. And all for the price of an average family home in London.
You know about the art, history, bucolic beauty, glorious shopping and scrumptious food. But did you know that Italy has some pretty great ski resorts too? And not just in the Alps. From top to toe, there are Italian ski homes just a short drive from the beach and countryside. Best of both worlds? We think so. Here are our favourites.
