Owning a farmhouse in the beautiful rolling landscape of Tuscany is a dream for many. There are some stunning large farmhouses in Tuscany at all levels of affordability. And, with property prices in Italy not suffering in the same way as in other countries over recent years, the potential for capital growth is good.
Karen Ross of Casa Tuscany recently gave readers of the Daily Mail the benefit of her advice. She said: “Consider a house or an apartment in a village, not a city. Tuscany is expensive in most areas, but for more affordable prices, look to the north of Lucca.”
“It is beautiful, reasonably close to both the sea and the mountains and only an hour from Florence.”
In saying that, particularly with opportunities for fractional ownership, there are some spectacular real estate opportunities available throughout Tuscany. As always, you get what you pay for.
And, if you are considering investing in Italian Property, the potential for capital growth is good. Rupert Fawcett of agents Knight Frank said: “The second-homes market has fared relatively well compared with some other European destinations. Prices dipped during the recession but will stabilise over the long term.”
