Ascoli Piceno among Europe’s Best Towns and Cities where to live for $2,500 a Month or Less

Ascoli Piceno among Europe’s Best Towns and Cities where to live for $2,500 a Month or Less | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it

Many expats are drawn to the idea of retiring in Europe, but can be thrown off by the high prices of its most famous destinations. But while big cities such as Paris and Madrid may hit hard on the wallet, there are still many alternatives for those seeking the romance of Europe, but at an affordable cost. [...]

Mariano Pallottini's curator insight, September 15, 2016 12:56 PM

Ascoli Piceno, at the southern edge of Le Marche, is a gorgeous town of medieval monuments and Renaissance splendor, which is largely overlooked—but it shouldn’t be. It offers a high quality of life in its beautiful historic center, where everything you need is at your doorstep, and where events and exhibits regularly liven up the town.

The locals like to point out that Ascoli Piceno is older than Rome. They’re rightfully proud of their city and their lifestyle. It is beautiful and relaxed, and there is always something to do: an art exhibit among Roman ruins, cinema under the stars in a 15th-century cloister, concerts in the piazza, and a twice-weekly market that rolls into town. The velvet-clad opera theater is an opulent venue, while homey food festivals provide inexpensive (and delicious) fun.

In addition to the beauty and quality of life, Ascoli Piceno retains its small local shops, where fresh produce, locally raised meat, and regional products can be procured at good prices. Restaurants are plentiful, with excellent fare that won’t break the bank either. You can dine out and enjoy a bountiful meal for about $20 per person.

International Living Correspondent Valerie Fortney Schneider says that Ascoli Pisceno “offers the classic Italian lifestyle of good food, great wine, and cultural attractions for around $2,000 a month for a couple, and that’s including rent.

Apartments in the historic center can be rented for around $530 a month. If you are looking to buy, you can expect to pay $95,000 and $165,000 for a historic center apartment, while a two-bedroom townhouse will set you back about $184,000.

We certainly agree. Ascoli Piceno is one of our favorite places to visit too and although personally we would never choose to live in a city (we love the countryside too much!), if we did, it would be Ascoli! You can even stay at The Hideaway with us whilst house hunting as we are only 30 minutes away!

Le Marche Among The Top Regions For Retirement In Italy

Le Marche Among The Top Regions For Retirement In Italy | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it

Italy has 20 regions and a wide range of climates from Alpine to hot and sunny. Each offers a wealth of amenities and activities, regional food and wine, even dialects. Speaking of which, if you decide to settle in Italy, you will need to learn at least some Italian to be comfortable...

Le Marche. This mountainous region of hill towns, farms and Adriatic Sea beaches is in central Italy. According to the AARP, renting a home in La Marche can run anywhere from $600 in the countryside to $1500 a month to live on the 100 miles of Adriatic coastline. Looking to buy? You might be able to find a home for approximately $300,000 on or close to the water, in a town like Senigallia or Potenza Picena – or in one of the medieval towns that dot the hilly, green countryside, such as Fermo.
The port city of Ancona is the region’s capital. If you settle there, you will find some six metro buses, plus taxi companies to  help you get around. Some say this is the next “hot” area for expats given its affordability. [...]

7 Things To Consider Before Retiring Overseas

7 Things To Consider Before Retiring Overseas | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it

You can find lots of information and articles on the countries and cities you're interested in retiring to at websites like International LivingEscape Artist and AngloINFO. International Living even offers a short quiz you can take to help you discover your ideal overseas retirement location. There are also some great books on this topic like "How to Retire Overseas: Everything You Need to Know to Live Well (for Less) Abroad" by Kathleen Peddicord, and "Retirement Without Borders" by Barry Golson. These books and others like it are available in book stores nationwide or online atamazon.com. Or, check with your local public library.

Another good tip is to talk or network with some expatriates who have already made the move you're thinking about making. They can give you tips and suggestions, as well as the advantages and disadvantages and day-to-day reality of living in a particular country. Some popular sites to finding expat resources are expatexchange.com and expatforum.com. Here are some other areas you need to investigate.

Cost of living: Retiring abroad used to be seen as a surefire way to live beyond your means, and for some countries it still is. But the U.S. dollar isn't what it used to be, so your money may not stretch as far as you think. See numbeo.com and xpatulator.com for a country-by-country cost of living comparison.

Safety and stability: The U.S. State Department offers background notes or fact sheets on 200 countries providing information about the land, people, history, government, political conditions, economy and foreign relations.

Weather: Use worldclimate.com to get weather information on just about every significant city in the world.

Taxes: No matter what foreign country you decide to retire in, as long as you're a U.S. citizen you still have to pay U.S. taxes. For details see the IRS publication 54, "Tax Guide for U.S. Citizens and Resident Aliens Abroad."

Health care: Medicare does not cover retirees outside the U.S., so you'll need to contact theembassy or consulate of your destination country to see how you can be covered as a foreign resident. Many countries provide government-sponsored health care that's inexpensive, accessible and just as good as what you get in the states, or you may want to buy a policy. Outfits like the Association of Americans Resident OverseasApril Medibroker and Bupa Internationaloffer or broker affordable health plans.

Social Security: This is the one area you don't need to worry about. You can receive your monthly Social Security benefits almost anywhere you live around the world. Your benefits can be deposited into your bank account either in the U.S. or in your new home country - there are some exceptions. To learn more, see ssa.gov/pubs/10137.pdf.

Test run: Once you settle on a destination, be sure you visit multiple times during different seasons to see whether you can envision yourself living there and not just exploring the place as a tourist. If you like what you see but aren't sure where to live, rent before you buy to be certain you're happy with your choice.

N.11 - Successful "Case History" of foreigners buying a property in Le Marche

N.11 - Successful "Case History" of foreigners buying a property in Le Marche | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it

Thomas and Kirsten Weydemann both had a passion for red wine, old country houses, Mediterranean landscapes and the Italian language for a long time. In 1997 They found in the heart of the central Italian region Le Marche the perfect place for their vineyard project: a deserted 150 year old farmhouse surrounded by 6 hectares of land.
The restoration of the house and the construction of the winery with its underground cellar offered them as architects the opportunity to design for themselves. Located in the middle of a DOC producing area, where wine has been made since ancient times, it was an ideal position for a new vineyard.  This is how was born the Fattoria Serra San Martino that lies in the heart of Le Marche, about 20 km from the Adriatic Sea in the soft hills of the Ancona hinterland.
Their vineyards are located in the soft hills between the Adriatic Sea and the Apennine Mountains on slopes facing the southwest, at an altitude of 220m above sea level. Even in summer they are aerated by cool winds. They allow grass and wild flowers to grow between the rows to create a habitat for useful animals. The unique micro climate guarantees a superior quality of the grapes.
The surface of the soil is characterized by clay and lime. Lower levels are predominantly sand and shell limestone. Where it is necessary they use organic fertiliser and sow green manures. Weed control is done mechanically without the use of herbicides. To protect the vines against plant diseases they use well-proven products of the ecological winegrowing.
Primarily cultivated at Serra San Martino is the autoctonal Montepulciano. In addition they grow Merlot, Syrah and a small number of Sagrantino vines. Slow growing rootstocks and a dense pattern of 6000 vines per hectare are the basis for the high quality of the grapes.
Serra San Martino Winery in Le Marche, Italy, with the choice of the ideal agronomic techniques and the ideal grape harvesting time to the vinification and the bottling, for the production of high quality wines, become one of the most important wine producers of Le Marche.

Retire in Italy...in Le Marche is Better!

Retire in Italy...in Le Marche is Better! | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it

Imagine what it would be like to retire in Italy. Imagine being able to spend every springtime in Rome or Venice or Florence—can’t you just picture yourself meandering beside the Arno River on a perfect May evening, when all the terracotta roofs and ancient palaces are bathed in that special Florentine glow?
But you don’t have to spend all your time in Florence or any of the other great art cities to experience the magic of an Italian retirement. Italy’s landscapes are as gorgeous as they are diverse. Historic walled towns, timeless villages crowning dozens of little hilltops like tiaras, and fields covered with bright yellow sunflowers. Gnarled olive groves and lemon, orange, and almond trees, golden beaches and jewel-like Alpine lakes are found throughout the country. [...]

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

This article proposes to foreigners, Italy as a delightful destination to spend retirement. After dealing with beautiful images and delights of every kind, it poses a very direct question: what do you know about the islands of Sardinia and Sicily? and then what do you know about Le Marche, an exquisite region on the eastern coast that shares the same luscious Renaissance landscapes as Tuscany and Umbria, but where properties are much more sensibly priced?

N.13 - Successful "Case History" of foreigners buying a property in Le Marche

N.13 - Successful "Case History" of foreigners buying a property in Le Marche | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it

Leicestershire couple Dean and Lesley Mc Morran and young daughter Grace left England in January 2006 to start a new life running a country house holiday rental business near the medieval village of Mogliano in the Italian region of Le Marche.
They made the decision back in January 2003. There were several reasons behind their reason to move to Italy. They had suffered a family bereavement and Dean was increasingly stressed in his job in the insurance business. They wanted to change their lives and work for themselves.
The couple had been to Italy frequently on holiday and loved it. But they were less than impressed with the standard of some accommodation. They felt that, despite having no experience in the tourist industry, they could easily do better than some of the places they had stayed in. And so they discussed buying a house in Italy which had enough space for them to offer holiday rentals to tourists.
Once the decision was made the couple lost no time in making things happen. They viewed over 20 houses in Le Marche in February 2003 before agreeing that their favoured location was around Mogliano. “It had beautiful countryside, wasn’t too isolated and was centrally located in Marche – just 30 minutes from the sea and 40 minutes from the mountains,” explains Dean.
The couple did not look for an established business, but a house that they could restore and develop as they wanted it. “We thought it would be cheaper to do it that way,” says Lesley, “but I’m not sure I would do it again like that, given the cost of restoration. I might look for a ready established business.
”Their aim was to have somewhere that would give them their own private living quarters but also offer four apartments for letting. They decided against a B&B as they wanted more freedom. “Once the guests are there and have their keys they are free to do as they like,” says Dean. “Of course we are on hand to offer advice and assistance but we are not tied to providing meals or anything like that. It suits us better.”
“Caserma Carina was almost the last house we looked at, although Dean wasn’t as smitten as I was. He thought it looked like an army barracks,” laughs Lesley. They bought it anyway, but as a reminder of Dean’s first impression they gave it the name Caserma Carina which means ‘pretty barracks’ in Italian!
The couple continued to work in the Midlands while the work was done. From buying the property to moving to Italy took three long years during which time they were also setting up the rental business.
The family loves their new life in Italy. “It’s wonderful - the relaxed lifestyle, the food and wine, the beautiful countryside and, of course, the people,” says Lesley. But there are a few irritations – “Italian bureaucracy and the tendency to make very heavy weather of things in business,” says Dean.
And do the couple feel it was the right move? “Absolutely,” says Lesley. “We will always love Leicestershire and will continue to make regular trips back to the UK, but it’s Le Marche we call home now.”

Renovating a "rustico" in Le Marche: il Gelso

Renovating a "rustico" in Le Marche: il Gelso | Le Marche Properties and Accommodation | Scoop.it

The following words will describe you how the story of a renovation has started in Le Marche.

You are lucky and can take profit of others experience clicking on the photo. Read how the adventure has progressed.

<<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?>>
