Buying a Place in Italy better than expected

Buying a Place in Italy better than expected | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it
We decided to do a series of BLOGs on our experience in buying a house in Italy. We are not saying that the way we did it, will be for everyone. It did work for us and we are very happy with the decision. Many books talk about the horrible red tape in dealing with…
Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Highlight: "We started looking in Tuscany (as all Americans do) but the prices are just too high. We wanted it all, a Seaview, a mountain view, a nice place with modern conveniences, a real Italian city void of tourists and the right price. Impossible right? Well we got it all and at our budget. We saw a place that was in a newly constructed building (a rarity in Italy) and it had fantastic mountain and a Seaview. It was a few kilometers from the beach. When we saw the price we thought it must be a time share but it was to purchase. It is a building with 4 units per floor and two main floors. There was a penthouse occupied by one of the owners children and two more units in the basement opening out onto the yard."

Renovating a "rustico" in Le Marche: il Gelso

<<The 2nd of October 2011 will be our 30th wedding anniversary.

On that day Peter and I will be driving through Switzerland on our way to Le Marche in Italy to start the build of what will be our new home.

Our dogs, Elsie and Pip, travel with Peter in the landrover and I tag along behind in my little automatic Honda. Apart from the 70 cu. mtrs. (!) of stuff we still have in storage in the UK, these two cars also carry all the worldly goods we took from the farm when we sold it in January.

"Il Gelso" from the title of this blog, is the name of the pile of bricks, once a farmhouse, which we are buying in Le Marche. A gelso is a mulberry tree. At present this mulberry tree is firmly rooted in the foundations of the house and one of the first tasks in the rebuilding process will be to uproot and replant it. Paolo has already warned us that it will need a lot of watering and tlc when it is replanted; its metaphorical significance is not lost on us. Paolo is our geometra, which, as far as I understand, translates as builder, architect, and "what I say goes" man on site. His name will no doubt feature often in these blogs - what do you think?>>
