Capalbio (Tuscany)

Capalbio is a municipality in the Province of Grosseto, in the Tuscany region of Italy. It borders the following municipalities: Manciano, Montalto di Castro, Orbetello. The name derives probably from the Latin Caput Album or Campus Albus (White Cape or Field, respectively), due to the white alabaster stone dug in the area. The hills around the commune are part 'Denominazione di origine controllata' (DOC) that produces red, white and rosé wines as a dessert Vin Santo style.

Flying Freehold: Does anyone have any experience of purchasing a freehold apartment in an Italian village, where the situation is that the property is freehold, and above another owner's property?

Hi! I know it's been a long time since the post, but I am hoping you will be able to help me. I am currently looking for property to buy near Impruneta, Tuscany.

We have bought a house in Tuscany, rented an apartment to move into while we work on the house, and will be driving over at the beginning of November with our dogs to start our new life.
