A bargain €65,000, a lovely home set over 3 floors in a palazzo building dating from the 1800s and located in Gissi, Abruzzo, within easy reach of Italy's Adriatic coast.
Ground floor: Entrance hallway with imposing staircase. This floor also contains a WC and leads to the cellar.
First floor: Entrance hallway with fireplace, kitchen, dining room, bedroom, WC.
Second floor: 2 bedrooms, both with balconies.
Utilities present: water, electricity, gas, sewerage, heating.
The property is perfectly habitable, as the photos show.
However, the bedrooms would benefit from some updating. A full bathroom will need to be installed as at present there are two WCs but no bathtub or shower.
Mountains and the coast are all within 30 minutes by road.
The region of Abruzzo less than 100 minutes by road from the city of Rome, is one of Italy's most alluring areas.
Nearly a third of Abruzzo is taken up by stunning parkland, as the sprawling plains, scenic valleys and towering mountains are broken up only by beautifully preserved medieval towns and villages.
They are the Gran Sasso National Park – measuring 150,000 hectares and including the Gran Sasso mountains – and Maiella National Park, as well as an 80-mile coast and more than 20 ski resorts.
Yet Abruzzo also provides some of Italy's most affordable homes on offer.
