Vasto (Abruzzo)

Vasto is a town and comune on the Adriatic coast of the Province of Chieti, in southern Abruzzo. The old part of the town features a number of buildings and churches dating from the 12th-18th centuries, including: Vasto Cathedral, Church of Santa Maria Maggiore, with a quite tall bell tower, Castello Caldoresco, D'Avalos Palace and the Musei Civici. Below the hill on which the town is located, the beach resort town of Marina di Vasto offers a large sandy beach and several hotels and other facilities. Further north the coast becomes rocky and features interesting pebble and stone beaches and coves, as well as the typical "trabocchi", typical wooden fishing machines of the Southern Abruzzo coast. Amongst the natural areas, also featuring a number of sandy and rocky beaches, is the protected natural area of the Riserva Naturale di Punta Aderci.

@mozart asks:

We are about to get the keys for an apartment within a house near L'Aquila, which is a holiday home for ourselves and family. We do not intend to rent this out.  However we will need the services of a property management when we are not there to pay utility bills etc.

@queencafe asks:

Is it still a buyers market to buy a property in Italy in Abruzzo or Tuscany area with the changes in taxation for foreigners ? I know this is a very broad question but we like to purchase a two to three bedroom house or aprt near coastal area . Thank you
