Monte Argentario (Tuscany)

Monte Argentario is a comune and a peninsula belonging to the Province of Grosseto, in the Italian region Tuscany. The peninsula is connected with the mainland by three spits of land which form two lagoons, the Laguna di Ponente on the west side and the Laguna di Levante on the east side of the middle dam. The two main villages on Monte Argentario are Porto Santo Stefano, chief town, facing north, and Porto Ercole facing south. The panoramic road 'Strada Panoramica' starts in Porto Santo Stefano allowing splendid views of the coast and the Tuscan Archipelago. Monte Argentario borders the comune of Orbetello, which is located on the middle dam between the two lagoons.

Hi, can anyone help on this site please?

Hello, I'd be grateful for your thoughts about geometra's fees and processes.  We have a (tiny!) house in Tuscany that we are wanting to extend (under the 20% permitted development) and have approached a geometra (recommended to us by our estate agent).  We have been quoted 7,400 euros +VAT +CNPA
