YOU CAN NOW BUY A HOUSE IN CALABRIA, ITALY, FOR THE AMAZING PRIZE OF ONE EURO, WITH A CATCH
So we’ve had a few stories hit the wires like this. But this one just might be a keeper. There’s a town in Italy that is desperate for some new people to live there. So desperate, in fact, that it has a lot of empty homes it is selling for a single Euro. And yes, that’s just over one US dollar. But, of course, there’s a little catch. But it’s not too bad. The town is Cinquefrondi. It’s located in Calabria, Italy. And yes, it looks like the picture above. So it’s old, classic, and totally Italian.
ONE SINGLE EURO BUYS YOU A HOME IN CINQUEFRONDI, A COVID-FREE TOWN IN PARADISE
Cinquefrondi is calling itself a “Covid-free village.” Why? Because it largely avoided the pandemic. In fact, it is the safest place in Italy to be these days. If you go there, you have the lowest chance of getting the Covid plague. Well, considering how desperate for people they are there, that makes sense. It’s easy to avoid a pandemic’s impact if you don’t have a lot of people to screw things up. And, if you have the means, this single Euro home offer is a nice way to go, especially if you love the scene and easy access to gorgeous beaches. So, about this catch?
ONE EURO HOME SALE HAS THE CODE NAME, OPERATION BEAUTY, WITH A LITTLE RENOVATION
The home “sale” has the Code name, Operation Beauty. So if you make the commitment, you do get an amazing home in the small community. But you will need to commit to a little bit more. You will need to renovate your new digs. And, you will need to give pay a local insurance policy of 250 Euros. That’s not so bad. But if you don’t finish your home “work” within three years, you then have to pay a fine of 20,000 Euros. That’s not so small. But 3 years is a nice chunk of time to get it done. And with the Ionian and Tyrrhenian coastlines just 15 minutes away, you’ve got some perfect beaches to take breaks on. Oh, and this town is smack in the middle of Aspromonte National Park, too.
