Having a holiday home in Italy is a dream for many. However, there are many downsides to consider before taking the plunge. I was recently talking to a couple who told me that having a house in Italy means they feel obliged to holiday at the house each year, which over time has become a little boring. In hindsight, they wish they’d rented properties in different parts of the country rather than being tied to the same property in the same place year after year.
If you are considering buying a property in Italy, think long-term. Make sure it’s for the right reasons and that you have done your research absolutely thoroughly.
