A romantic, historic apartment and a slice of Italian city life are irresistible to foreign buyers | Tuscan Properties

A romantic, historic apartment and a slice of Italian city life are irresistible to foreign buyers | Tuscan Properties | Italia Mia | Scoop.it

There is a definite movement from the countryside to cities for buyers in Italy, attracted by smaller, easily manageable property.
Foreigners may dream of owning a Tuscan rural idyll but in recent years, once push has come to shove, many have chosen a city location instead — opting for a lifestyle heavy on culture, architecture and art.

So, for example, would you buy an apartment with such stunning view?

This is a renovated apartment in the heart of the historical Sarteano (Si), in an eighteenth century building, with an area of 150 square meters c.ca. and a loft of about 40 square meters.
Overlooking the main square, the apartment is spread over three floors of a building - part of the '400 and the '700 - with beautiful views of the town's main square and the surrounding hills, with views of Mount Cetona. Internally the apartment offers: on the 1st floor is the entrance to the house from which, through an internal staircase floors, you can reach the second level where there is a multipurpose room currently used as a study and a bathroom . Also through an internal staircase once again in handmade terracotta, we reach the third floor of the building where there is a large living room with fireplace and a fully functional gallery which has been made a pleasant accommodation for the master bedroom. From the living room, up a few steps, there is a spacious landing currently used as a wardrobe-dressing room, a bathroom, a living room and a dining room with fireplace and kitchenette. All rooms are very spacious and bright at all hours of the day, with characteristics typical of the old buildings still visible (arches, exposed beams, large windows). The apartment is located close to public car parks free of charge, with views of the town's main square and the Teatro Comunale, all amenities are within walking distance but at the same time you can appreciate the extraordinary isolation from the noise inherent in any city center. Part of furniture and appliances have been tailor-made for the restoration took place recently (about 3 years ago), so they are included in the sale. The apartment has a loft of about 40 square meters used as a laundry room where they were placed the dryer, washing machine and boiler.

Abruzzo, Italy, among The World's 10 Best Places to Retire

Abruzzo, Italy, among The World's 10 Best Places to Retire | Italia Mia | Scoop.it

We've rounded up places around the globe that have pleasant year-round weather, affordable living costs, and are situated near cultural sites, which could combat boredom. Many also have large expat communities that may take the edge off the initial culture shock and help travelers acclimate. Take a look at our top 10 picks, which also happen to make excellent vacations.

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Abruzzo, Italy, among The World's 10 Best Places to Retire

Highlight: <<Abruzzo is actually a region of Italy, but it's been making lots of where-to-retire lists thanks to its cheap housing, unspoiled terrain, and charming towns. The large stretch of land lies east of Rome and houses three national parks with rugged mountains and wildlife. Retirees looking for a quaint spot can look into cities such as L'Aquila and Chieti, while those seeking water views will prefer the more popular Pescara. This region generally has a good mix of traditional and modern life. Don't expect a ton of sites and international chain stores here, but Rome is under a two-and-a-half-hour drive away.>>

10 Italian Hilltop Towns You Have To See Before You Die

10 Italian Hilltop Towns You Have To See Before You Die | Italia Mia | Scoop.it
So you're planning a trip to Italy but you don't want to just see the famous tourist traps. You long to experience genuine Italian culture. Yet everywhere you look for tips, be it from websites, travel agents, or your well-traveled friends, they only talk about the same old places: Rome, Venice, Florence...

Does the real Italy even exist any longer, you wonder?

Indeed it does, and it's in full magical display in the fairy-tale hilltop towns. The places where time has stopped, where secret pasta recipes are passed through generations. Where flowers adorn centuries-old stone houses, and where locals know each other by name.

Italy hides many hilltop towns like these, but the following ones are some of the most breathtaking:

Travel+Leisure dedicates to Norcia/Castelluccio a space inside the article: 25 Secret European Villages

Travel+Leisure dedicates to Norcia/Castelluccio a space inside the article: 25 Secret European Villages | Italia Mia | Scoop.it

In this eastern Umbrian citadel, artisanal culinary traditions endure. Pecorino cheese is aged for two years, trained dogs sniff out black truffles in the woodlands, and honey is sourced from the red wildflowers that bloom in the plains. But it’s the cinghiale that takes pride of place. Throughout the centro storico, the scent of spiced wild-boar salumi carries from the norcineria (delis) into the traffic-free roads. Step past the prosciutti hanging in storefronts to find shopkeepers curing cuts of the pork with methods perfected over the past 800 years. Ask them to slice up fresh ciauscoli, and bring it to the Piazza San Benedetto, where villagers celebrate the Festival of Saint Benedict in the spring.

How to Get There: Norcia is 69 miles northeast of Rome.

Where to Stay: The 24-room Palazzo Seneca, set in a 16th-century palace.

Where to Eat: Il Granaro del Monte, for plates of black-truffle strangozzi pasta.

Local Take: Fabrizio Marini, director of the food shop Norceria Brancaleone da Norcia, recommends visiting during the Black Truffle Festival, in February and March.
