Abruzzo, Italy Laura Hamilton

Since meeting on a trip to Abruzzo on the east coast of Italy a year ago, Sue and Jane have become firm friends. And retired nurse Sue loved the area so much, that now she feels the time is right to find the perfect property there that she can retire to. For her £120,000 budget she’s looking for a three-bedroom detached house with a garden. Laura Hamilton has five great properties to show them but will any of them be perfect enough for Sue to call home?

Abruzzo

Abruzzo is renowned for its variety and richness of its cuisine which is considered among the best in Italy. The area is extensively cultivated with olive trees and vineyards, and produces celebrated wines and extra virgin olive oil. Along the Abruzzo coast property prices are generally cheaper comparative to other Italian regions.
