Great time for the British to buy a property in Abruzzo (Italy), as pound soars versus euro.
Peter Lavelle June 2014
Do you plan to buy a property in Abruzzo (Italy) this year? If so, you'll be pleased to know it's become much cheaper to buy an Abruzzo property recently, because the pound is rocketing versus the euro. To be specific, sterling hit 1.2563 against the common currency recently, its strongest in 20 months, or since October 1st 2012.
What does this mean for you when you buy a property in Abruzzo? Well, it'll be much cheaper to do so, because you'll get more euros when you exchange currencies. In fact, were you to exchange £1,250, you'd get +€150 more now than if you'd done so back when the pound was at its weakest, at 1.1371, on March 12th last year.
Moreover, there's an excellent chance it could become even better value to buy a property in Abruzzo this year, if the pound continues to climb versus the euro. Sterling could rise further, because the Bank of England is predicted to become the 1st major bank since the financial crash to hike interest rates, later this year.
With this in mind, it's shaping up to be a great time to buy a property in Abruzzo, as the strong pound cuts the cost of doing so! About the author

The perks of investing in property in Italy
Panna Munyal August 6, 2015 (The National - Arts & Lifestyle - Abu Dhabi)
The declining value of the euro – €1 is currently worth Dh4.03 compared to Dh5 this time last year and Dh5.30 in 2011 – is encouraging investors and second-home buyers to look at property in Europe. While Greece is still perceived as high risk and Spain and Portugal are bordering on broke, Italy’s residential-property sector is fast gaining a reputation as being low-priced and lucrative – because while prices have stayed low, the market is starting to stir again, a healthy sign in a region stagnant since the 2008 financial crash. That Italy is a vacationing spot known for its food, fashion and friendly people doesn’t hurt, either.
International corporations such as Sotheby’s and the Italian property portalGate-Away.com have reported heightened interest in Italy from UAE buyers in the past year. The Dubai office of Sotheby’s International Realty even has a sales team with agents devoted specifically to enquiries for Italy.
Diletta Giorgolo Spinola, the head of sales at Tuscany Sotheby’s International Realty, says: “Italian property prices are 30 per cent below their peak right now, but because the market is finally starting to move again, this is the perfect time to invest in an overseas home in Italy. Vendors can’t put their properties on the market at an inflated value because there are too many other sellers prepared to negotiate.”
Francesco Carlucci, the cofounder of the luxury property developer Essentis Properties, adds: “We were in the middle of the crisis five years ago, and while I wouldn’t say it’s now completely behind us, Italy’s economy is returning to health and there are still plenty of bargains to be had if you look in the right areas. Moreover, many UAE buyers will pay with dollars, and the dollar has never been stronger than it is now against the euro. My forecast is that between 2010 and 2020, there will be an increase of 35 to 40 per cent in prices for the best properties. For example, the Puglia region came to the map about 10 years ago and now the property has doubled in value.”
From Abruzzo to Umbria
When it comes to areas of interest, Lorenzo Mercolini, the managing director of Sotheby’s International Realty, says: “Buyers from the UAE and GCC are looking at developments in major cities, such as Rome, Milan and, on a minor scale, Florence, and there also appears to be an interest in hotels as an investment. As the UAE clientele gets more acquainted with Italian opportunities, it is likely that an interest in trophy assets will resume.”
Trophy assets have traditionally included properties in Tuscany, Lake Como in the Lombardy region, Portofino in Liguria and the island of Capri in Campania, while research by Gate-Away.com on the enquiries received specifically from the UAE between January 2014 and May this year suggests buyers are also interested in Abruzzo, Piedmont, Puglia, Sardinia, Veneto and Umbria.
Geolocation of monumental trees in Abruzzo.
The regional government has approved the regional list of monumental trees of Abruzzo: the document refers to the trees that have some peculiarities, for example related to the large size compared to its kind, longevity trees or tied to a particular historical event, which require greater protection and enhancement of heritage trees in the region.
Call them monumental trees of Abruzzo: are the greatest, the most "elderly", the most characteristic of the region. Now we know they are 340.
The Abruzzo region is east of Rome and its biggest city, Pescara, sits on the Adriatic coast.
You'll be a drive away from both the beach and skiing. Rather than bustling cities, it's home to quiet villages, castles and vineyards.

2019 in the Abruzzo Parks
Abruzzo Parks promotes attendance and knowledge of Parks and Reserves of Abruzzo, considered as a whole organic and indissoluble; therefore it operates in the whole region, from the mountains to the sea, going even to the Sibillini National Park and the Gargano National Park.
From north to south, the parks realized, following the shape of the Apennine ridge, almost a single large area of protected area that encompasses some of the most precious natural environments and integrates the whole of Europe. Joined by a whole system of more or less extensive nature reserves, do not limit their role to the preservation of the natural heritage , but include within them considerable historic, artistic and cultural.
