A Rosie Life In Italy
“Allora (a great word which means ‘so’), there are nine courtyards, four houses, a vineyard and three outbuildings – two of which need to be destroyed as they do not have the permissions.”
We hadn’t really planned to find a house so early in our pre-preliminary pre-search stage. But here we were, going to an estate agent to sign something, about something to do with buying a house in Italy with a lot of potential if you squint.
Search houses for sale online for about 5 years, dreaming of a ‘maybe someday’ possibility. Villas with pools and frescoed ceilings to caves which once housed three families during harder times. Castles to crumbling trulli anything is game. Decide to make the move to Italy, life is too short to wait around. Or like us, when your country’s economy crashes and you loose your income and have your home repossessed by the bank, decide to move to a country you can actually afford to have a nice life in, our No.1 choice was Italy. Rent for a couple of years and then consider buying when you are back on your feet.
