....you would still be hard-pressed to find a cheaper property than those on sale in one Sicilian town, where homes are going for as little as €1.And I want one.
Dozens of properties have been put up for sale in Sambuca, a hilltop town with stunning views across the Mediterranean island, for less than the price of a takeaway coffee.
The deal is a bid to revive an area that has undergone depopulation in recent years, with residents moving to bigger cities.
Of course there's a hitch. You have to be willing and able to fix up the newly-acquired property.
But still ... it's down-to-earth. It's direct. And I can understand it and thereby be rolled into its wishery-pokery. Of course I have neither the disposable income nor the requisite youthful energy, but still....
A fixer-upper makes my hammers and wrenches, long since set aside, rattle for action.
