Le case in vendita – Houses for sale
Ciao a tutti!
I am sure you have all seen on the news at times the stories of small towns in Italy selling houses for 1 euro to entice new residents and to grow their population, with the caveat that you renovate the home. Well there is a new town in Italy offering an even more tempting offer, and that is Biccari, Puglia.
Biccari is offering perfectly habitable homes from anywhere between 7 to 20 thousand euro. These homes are located in the quaint historic city center, while the town of Biccari is surrounded by the Dauni mountains and Lake Pescara. A picturesque and idyllic town, Biccari has a population of around 2,500 people.
To check out and maybe even purchase one of these homes, check out the constantly updated catalogue here.
