Hi maggymay,We also stayed in Vasto when we were considering buying in Abruzzo.Its a wonderful city.If you look at prairepaintbrush question on buying in Abruzzo you will see my recommendation of "Better Property"who are local to the area and have their office in Pollutri which is quite close to Vasto.Any further info let me know.

Hi PPB,On the "Better Property"website in the top right corner you can "fill our form" it gives you a list of what you require to choose your home,its useful and gives you more of what can be offered.Wendy runs the office and speaks English.You will find that houses are cheaper further inland in the mountains,but remember in these hilltop villages it is very picturesque but they can be remote with harsh winters.A rough guide is if you see olive trees you should be in the milder weather areas.We went for the lower lands about one hour from the coast Vasto a beautiful old city and not far from our  hilltop town Atessa. Ciao for now.

Yes Atessa by name and our house in the same commune and another yes the GOOD old Italymag forum.Antonio  being a trained professional Geometra gives good honest advice.Reputation is everything  and more so locally. It was one of the reasons he left the other agency and started his own.Worth looking if planning a viewing trip.

Hi Steve this is my first post on the new site i have posted before on the old site and yes i do not see many of the old members here anymore.You are correct "Better Property" is local to Pollutri in Chieti Province and owned and run by local lad Antonio.We also used various agents whilst visting Abruzzo over a two year period before finding Antonio who had just started his buisness.(we had met Antonio before whilst employed by another agent)
