Why buy in Italy?
Most parts of Italy can be reached relatively quickly and cheaply by plane which therefore make it a viable destination for long weekends, summer vacations and half term breaks. A short journey with one of the major airlines will take you from your busy lifestyle to the land of mountains, sea, sunshine and first class wines and cuisine.
Italy has a mild climate which is characterised by long hot summers and winters that are dry and sunny. Italy is great place to visit during the winter months especially in the north where the bright sunshine contrasts beautifully with the mountain silhouettes, in fact the perfect skiing environment.
Wine and Cuisine
Italians are deeply passionate about cuisine and winemaking with each region offering variations in cuisine and local wines. Prices to eat out in Italy are generally cheaper than the UK unless of course you visit major tourist areas like Venice. A typical meal in Piemonte costs about 15 Euros with wine.
Italy offers something for everyone. The varied Italian landscape guarantees that your passion for sporting activities will be met, be it skiing, swimming, trekking, cycling or horse riding. The Winter Olympics of 2006 were in fact held in Turin.
Yes, that famous Italian relaxed lifestyle needs to be experienced to be fully appreciated. The pace of life is much slower here and together with that wonderful Mediterranean diet and sunshine, relaxation is obligatory.
Italian property prices in general offer great value for money and as more people continue to buy here, property prices will increase accordingly in all regions therefore following the trend set by Umbria and Tuscany.
