How does one survive in the winter here? I bought a house with no heat. My realtor advised I install pellet stoves.
Does anyone in Abruzzo have a contact for Fineco bank? My old contact information is no longer valid. Molto grazie !
Ciao,I have an appointment with the Italian Consulate in 2 weeks, I have everything I need, then I discover to my dismay that the health insurance coverage in my retirement package has changed since I retired and I no longer have insurance in Ital
I had a pellet stove installed in my house. Typical of Medieval villages, to access my home, I must first navigate very steep stone steps from the village, then 2 sets of stairs up to my living room. My street doesn't have cars.
I have just experienced my first winter in Abruzzo in the mountains. I love it here, but I did not enjoy the heating system in my house. I believe I made a mistake. My house is old.
I am asking a question for a friend who wants to move to Abruzzo. She found a house in a Village of Carpineto Della Nora. Are any of you familiar with this village? Are there amenities there? groceries, Doctors, pharmacy etc?
Someone recommended an online bank a while back and I can not find the link. I believe it was a Mr. Leli who I was to speak with. Anyone who can help would be greatly appreciated. Grazie Mille.
My home is in Tocco da Casauria, in Abruzzo. Are there any used furniture shops or vintage shops in the area between Pescara and Sulmona? I am looking for interesting pieces I can use I am into painted furniture. Happy to paint my own.
I live in Tocco da Casauria. I am traveling in a few weeks to the US. I am taking my dogs with me, but I must find a veterinarian who 1.Can speak English, or has an email so I can write to him or her my needs in Italian. 2.
Greetings all who have pets in Italy. I need your help. I am getting ready to travel to the USA with my dog, and I cannot find a website or a store in Abruzzo where I can order a crate. I need a medium rigid cage with ventilation on 3 sides.
I have been living in Tocco da Casauria for 4 years now. I absolutely love it. It is near the main highway A25 and E 80. This means you can get to other places quickly. The people are welcoming and kind. There are no restaurants in town any more. There are 2 pubs that offer food, but it is hamburgers, veggies, french fries, salads, There is a pizza place, but it has an odd schedule. The main restaurant closed in 2018. But a few kilometers away is Torre de Passeri, They have a few restaurants that are charming and the food is lovely. My house is a hill house. This means there is no place to drive a car to my home. Deliveries are difficult. Pellets for my heating are difficult to get to my house. Customer service doesn't exist in Italy. FYI. I don't necessarily think of that as a bad thing, but just telling you for information. I have never been treated like an outsider here. I hope you found a home you love. Katie Dover
I will try to give you my email firstname.lastname@example.org I hope it will post to you. I am taking precautions in Italy, We all are now. But I walk my dogs, go walking and have a coffee with friends. I live in a small village. The rumors and panic are flying around. I am more worried about returning to the US and the idiots reactions there. I plan to be back in the US on the 16th. I am only staying a week or so. Every day so many people die from the flu, starvation, cancer and other things and this virus just started and I don't know what to think. Is it man made? We have gone through enough in the last almost 4 years, have we not? The world is getting smaller and leaders everywhere find cruelty to be a better tool than leadership. I love my life in Italy.

It has been almost 2 years since we were in contact. I was wondering if you ever made it to Italy (Abruzzo). I have learned a great deal about Italy since we wrote to each other. I hope you found a place you love to be.
Thank you for your asistance. I was able to get a policy written for me in Italy and I am so happy. Things always work out. Ciao a tutti
Ciao, UgoDo you know of an insurance company I can contact? I am back in the States now and I have my appointment on September 17th.. thank you Katie
Maybe the President of America should be an example and pay his debts and taxes.
Thanks for your review, but I live in a small village with no hopes of getting deliveries. I also have no car. That pellet stove was not set up and I hate it. It uses 2 -15 kg bags each day. It's an expensive way to heat. I am a small woman. I cannot drag those bags all the way up the town center steps all 30 of them and walk down a cobble stone street, then up stairs . I am looking for an alternative way of heating. I am glad you enjoy your stove. I do not.
Thank you. My house consists of about 80sm. Will Leroy Merlin carry such a thing? I have an on demand gas boiler now for my cooking stove and oven and hot water for my showers and sinks including kitchen HW.
