Questions Asked

Hello! My husband and I have decided we'd like to buy a holiday home in Abruzzo, and we've found a lovely home overlooking Lake Bomba in Colledimezzo.

Sure. Great. Many thanks, Ugo!

Thanks very much, Kinetic99 and Ugo - lots of useful information! We've decided to view four houses next week - two in Colledimezzo, one in Dogliola and Palmoli. Molise has some real bargains, yes, but we struggled a little for comparable views. Very exciting! Better start improving our Italiano :-)

Thank you both very much.
@AmeriBruzzo: I read an article recently that recommended Abruzzo as a unspoilt gem of a place to buy in that many don't know about. The region is stunning. A place to retire to in future - and a great excuse to learn the language. Thanks for your positivity.
@modicasa: so we could contact a geologist. Do you know any? :-) When buying in England, it's standard to have an environmental report commissioned through your solicitor before signing any contracts. I'll definitely keep this in mind, thanks.

Thanks for the reply. Do you mean Teramo is a better place to consider buying, but is more prone to landslides? He's not from Teramo; he's from Liverpool, UK :-) But I think your point that all of Italy is prone to landslides is important to keep in mind.
