Default Living in Italy for six months out of the year

Hello

Our names are Michael and Palma Iacoboni and we currently live in Florida in the United States.

I officially retire on December 31,2011 and my wife and I always have had the plan to go to Italy for six months out of the year. We are American/Italians meaning all of our grandparents were born in Italy.

We have been to Italy two times over the past five years and really love it there.

Our grandparents were from Calabria and Abruzzo in Italy and we have been to both of these regions and would not mind living in either one of them.

We want to rent a one bedroom place for the first year and want to know if anyone knows on average per month how much rental places are in Calabria and Abruzzo. We really don't want to live in the main towns but don,t want to be more then a half hours drive from the main towns.

If anyone can help us please contact us back when you can.

Have a happy holiday season.


Thanks

Michael and Palma Iacoboni

hi there, you should be able to rent for around 400euros a month plus utilities in abruzzo although many owners only rent on a short term basis as they can charge this amount easily per week in the summer. /SNIP/

Steve and Abbie from Atlanta. We have visited Italy many times, now thinking of living there 4 months a year. We like Lucca and Ascoli Paceno.

Hello Steve and Abbie from Atlanta. Thanks for replying back to us.

Are you considering renting or are you planning on buying something in Italy?

If you are renting a place have you done research in the areas of Luca and Ascoli to find out what the average per month rental amounts are?

Living in the U.S in Florida at this point of time we can go to Italy for three months at a time using our passports only I believe. If you both go to Italy for four months are you going to have to get a visa for extended stay there? My wife and I are Americans/Italian meaning all of our grandparents were born in Italy but they are all unfortunately deceased.

Please when you can reply back to us on all of this.


Thanks

Michael and Palma

yes, you're right, you (& they) would need a different (other than holiday) visa to be able to stay in Italy for more than 90 days - as you say, no visa is actually required for a holiday

Renting first, then buying. Do not know much about monthly rentals but Ascoli will be much less than Lucca as it is far less well known as tourist destination. Since we are not planning to work at Italian job and have independent means we will be to get a long-term visa, I understand.

Hi guys!

My husband and I permanently relocated to Italy from the UK in September, so we are still settling in at the moment! We live in the Campania region, about 45 minutes south of Salerno. We have two small children, 5 and 2 and our lovely Chocolate Labrador, Ruby... who's 6.

My husband was a Fireman in the UK and I worked in the Civic Service so life here is a complete change for us! If I can give any advice on relocating with two small children, moving here with a dog or anything else, please feel free to contact me!

Lisa

over to all the posters who live in Italy - or want to
Explain to me why expat forum has so many steps to post a reply I don't care about fonts or funny little garbage we are adults not 7th graders with i phones. Ok I'm done on the complaining. 4 years until we retire to my wifes home town 70 kms from rome. We need a contractor to argue with our architect but will listen to us. the plans have been aproved and the fees are paid now we need the contractor. Any ideas . The contractor needs to be able to build terremoto walls and columns. We have the electrician, plumber, the bath fixtures, floor tile we just need a shell with window frames we have all the windows. Done this before .

Hi there,

I have dual citizenship with Italy and the US, and am entertaining the idea of one day emigrating to Italy with my hubby and our 2 miniature Schnauzers.

My family is from Catania, and I have spent many childhood summers there.

My Nonna and Zii (and cugini, etc) all live in Sicily, and I'd love to move there to help take care of my Nonna.
