Is it really necessary to have
Is it really necessary to have neighbours around your holiday home? I am looking into getting a holiday home which I will stay in occasionally for work as well but might also rent out a little. Since I will not be there full-time, I know that it probably makes better sense to look for a house that has neighbours and can be "watched". However, I love the idea of getting a more isolated house that has more land and privacy. Nonetheless, I have serious concerns that it will be a target for break-ins.In France, I even know people who are broken into regularly even though they actually live in the house! But they too tend to have either more isolated homes or have back entraces/windows that neighbours cannot see so easily.Do you have any recommendations based on your experiences or stories you have heard? Am I worrying for no reason? I love my privacy but would be very distraught if my house was broken into when I wasn't there.The house would be in southern Piemonte.Cheers.
