Breathtaking vistas, charm and heritage, verdant meadows all around, and… an almost unbelievably advantageous price! Many of the Italian properties that attract foreigners are alluring period buildings for sale at a very cost-effective price because they are in need of restoration, renovation or partial re-building.

The wording that defines these properties on real estate websites is da restaurare, i.e. to be restored, or da ristrutturare, to be renovated, or then again restaurato or rinnovato parzialmente, which generally means that part of the asset has been rebuilt or somewhat renovated, but there is still plenty to do.

Yet, there is nothing so wonderful as buying a charming stone-walled period property in the Italian countryside, and restoring it to fit one needs and dreams, right? Exactly!

Provided one has experienced and trustworthy local professional architects, surveyors, builders and legal consultants to count on. Yes, because Italian legislation in construction matters is both somewhat cryptic to understand, and comply with, and very strict: proprietors who carry out renovation work without the needed authorizations and do not conform with existing rules are subject to criminal prosecution.
