Italian Real Estate

Pinelli Estate - Il Rifugio

Why Italy?

Italian real estate is attracting increasing numbers of international investors and you can see why when you look at some of the photos on this page.

The country offers fabulous properties in some of the world’s most sought after locations.

The buying procedure is very simple (read our guide here) and, at the time of writing, Italy has no capital gains tax on real estate held for over five years. Making Italy a smart choice in every way.

It does pay though to do your homework before buying.

Please visit our insurance and mortgage page for some useful tips.

Where to Begin?

When I purchased for the first time, I really read as much as I possibly could and literally devoured every article I could find. I can promise you that time spent now will pay off in the end.

Try to see as much of Italy as you can; each region has something unique to offer, but it's usually very different from region to region. It's vital to know what you really want and travel to Italy to find it.

The onset of cheap airlines flying into Italy has meant that areas like Sardinia,  Piedmont and le Marche, all of which which were once relatively unknown, are now very easy to get to. These areas, and a few others like the Cilento, parts of the Veneto and Calabria, offer incredible bargains and far better value for money than the likes of Tuscany or the Amalfi Coast.

You'll find that these regions offer nearly everything that makes Italy special. From some of the best beaches in the world, great mountain peaks, rolling vineyard covered hills and of course elegant and historic cities and towns.
