in Italy

Italy is well-known for its diversified landscapes, the culinary characteristics as well as the hospitality of the people. It's hard to express what feelings are being triggered when looking at the beauty of the hills and valleys, the dreamlike cities, the gorgeous beaches, or the sun setting behind the mountains. Flora and fauna becomes a unit with the historical cities and the dreamy towns - all this makes Italy the perfect place for real estate investment.

It's not a secret that owning a property, whether it's a countryhouse, a farmhouse, a villa with pool or sea view or an apartment is a secure investment for the future.The Italian state territory consists of twenty regions. The largest part is onshore, which makes up the Italian "boot", whereas the rest of the country is split up in smaller islands - amongst them are famous places such as the Elba, Capri, Sardinia and Sicily.

The price for an estate is depending on the local conditions as well as the demand. Capri and Sicily are considered islands of the rich and beautiful and, therefore, the prices vary accordingly.

Nevertheless, there are properties for all prices in Tuscany, Liguria, Umbria or near the Lake Garda / Maggiore and in Sardinia. The airy building concepts with bright facades and wooden beams or round archs pleasantly unite the rooms. Most of the objects come with a balcony or even a roof-deck.
Naturally, you can also acquire non-built-up areas and undeveloped real estates and pass it on to the architect of your choice to build your dream house.

Live the life of your dreams and dive into a world of fantastic sceneries, nature and culture. Not to mention the culinary specialities...
