Questions Asked

I'm trying to research the best way to connect my property to the internet. So far when I'm living at the house I've used a dongle and pay as you go connection.

Hi, Does anyone have an answer about the new service tax that has replaced IMU and payment dates and how to calculate what I owe for 2014?

Back in March my wife and I did a house and pet sit for friends living in Macerata province of Le Marche, whilst they went back to the UK on family business.

HiI've just heard that Ryanair have cancelled all flights from Liverpool to Rimini. Does anyone know what's happened or is it just a case another Ryanair conundrum? The flights were always full when we have flown.Pete

I'm trying to find more information about residency. Am I right to think that the 2 main requirements are that I have sufficient means to support myself and health insurance.

My wife & I have recently bought a house in Sarnano. Unusually the previous owners have left almost all their furniture and household items in the house.

Does anyone know if the San Severino Blues Festival is happening this year? I've been waiting for the website to change it's listing for the past couple of months but nothing new has been loaded.

Are you still considering your options for a move to Italy Luke? We're also in the Le Marche region, having moved on a full time basis after 15+ years of holidaying here. We have some contacts in the building trade and are interested in your situation having gone through quite some experiences to realise our dream to live here. We have a modest little home in a hamlet close to the Sibillini mountains that requires a full range of works. May also be able to help with finding rentals in the area, depending on your requirements. Can PM you further details if it's of interest to you. Good luck with everything.

Thanks to all who have taken time to read or respond to our initial posting. We are grateful for the feedback from Fillide as it is, no doubt, of interest to all in general. As we are kind of old hands (well, we are in our mid-fifties) from our experience in the UK in this area, hopefully this knowledge translates equally well in Italia! This said, we have already done some research as to what is already (or not) available over here in terms of pet services including charges. It might be fitting to say that we ourselves are looking at modest rates with costs for additional services, such as gardening, painting, household jobs (beyond general upkeep) should they be required. For serious enquires, a consultation is recommended in the pet owners home, this will be free of charge within the local area. This will be to establish information about the pet/s, to discuss all expectations of both parties and any other relevant details. We aim to be fair and flexible whilst looking to establish a mutually satisfactory arrangement. Having had a rescue greyhound and lurcher for the past 12 years, we are happy to sit for animals who might have certain needs and issues which call for a patient, understanding and responsive attitude. Hopefully, we may be making a few furry friends in Le Marche soon! We are very approachable people, so please get in touch via email where we can direct you to further information or answer any questions you may have.

Many thanks to everyone for the replies and interest so far, we will start to reply to all in a couple of days time.

Thanks for this, I was wondering about different charges on my ENEL bills for non residents. You've helped me at least, keep up the good work! Regards Pete

I think it will probably depend on the signal strength where you are. We used a dongle recently at our house in Sarnano which worked pretty well for web browsing, email etc. It was a little slow for Skype but worked ok without video. Look out for introductory deals, we got 3 months access for 39 euros Cheers Pete

My wife & I have a small house in Le Marche and due to my redundancy are now planning to move more permanently to live in Italy, early next year. I understand from the reading I've done so far that to gain permission to stay longer than 90 days there are conditions we have to meet. One of these is to have employment or 'suffient means' of support. I'm struggling to find figures for what 'sufficient support' means. Do anyone know how much we have to have in our account to meet this criteria?
