What others are saying about Abruzzo

@k_ciolli asks:

We are purchasing a home in the Chieti region of Abruzzo. It comes with about 20+ acres of scrub farmland. Nothing is growing on it now but weeds and scrub brush. What would it take to obtain a declaration of an Agritourismo on this land?

@SRodgers asks:

Are there any English speakers in the greater Pescara area? My husband and I are near Citta Sant’Angelo, not permanent residents but we visit four times a year for about eight weeks in total. We are learning Italian but are at a very basic level.

@mozart asks:

We are at last taking possession of our flat in Villa Sant'Angelo, L'Aquila and will be there from 16-23 May this year.
