Looking to buy in Abruzzo
 
Hi, We are travelling to Abruzzo at the end of August, hopefuuly looking to find a property to buy. In reading several of the Expats experiences in the process I was hoping for some advice. We have no grasp of the Italian language and will certainly need assistance, from start to the end of completion.
Should we get the services of HousearoudItaly etc. or can anybody give me feedback in the process they have followed and how they found their own Notary, Geometra?
Thanks ( A VERY EXCITED)
Andrea

End of August is high tourist season still. Honestly no point coming unless you want to bake on the beach. Wait a few more weeks and come then.

It's a big region. Have you narrowed it down any?

We travel out on the 31st, so I'm hoping the holiday season may have cooled off a little, still hoping for a few days baking myself.
Although we are staying in Roseto, I've seen a few properties in and around the Montorio al Vomano, Penne Sant Andrea etc area. We can only fly from Bristol and arrive in at Ciampino Rome, we don't really want to travel more than 1hr 30 from the airport, as initially this will be a holiday home, hopefully one day full time!

Does that mean you can't fly into Pescara? 90 minutes should be long enough to get to the coast by car from Rome. Isn't it?

Myself and my husband have moved to Caporcianno near to Laquila, I have plenty of advice for you, but would rather tell you via e-mail. It is a beautiful part of the world and I do not regret buying, however some of my experiences may be helpful to you. Where in the uk do you live? Bunty.

Hi Bunty
How's it going out there? I'd be glad of any advice although have no clue how to get my e-mail to you, I'd rather not post it on here?
We are currently in avillage just outside Tiverton, Devon. Originally from Bury Manchester though, We must just have itchy feet! Andrea

Good to get your reply. I dont know either how to get email address without putting it on this sight, a chap from america was able to do it, so when I e-mail him I will ask. Firstly, do you know Mark & Sharon? Mark is originally from Bury, but now lives in Australia. They have just been over for a week and got stranded due to volcanic ash, however, they should be on their way back today. Please ask away any questions you have regarding this big step. Are you planning to molve here permanently or have just a holiday home?People in our village are starting to get repairs done following the earthquake. Our village did not suffer any fatalities, and damage was much less than other villages, so much destruction of beautiful buildings, but the people here have a fantastic attitude, the do not winge or complain, just get on with things!.Strange you live in Tiverton, we are looking for retirement appartment in Wellington, we did plan to retire wholetime, but my husband became unwell and does not feel able to stay all the time for now, he thinks our language skills and knowledge of area need to be improved before he will come back here. I stay 2-3 weeks in Italy and home to uk for 2 weeks, so I suppose I have the best of both worlds. Have you chosen any properties to view? if so where will you be looking? If visiting Caporcianno (a fantastic place!!) please be sure to let me know.There are some steps you need to be wary of, but in all, I am not sorry we bought our place. Will only be able to respond next week as dependent on commune free internet access, and I dont like to keep bothering them. They do not complain, but I just keep it to around twice a week, which is adequate for my needs. Keep in touch.
