Petty’s Italian Property For Sale And Rent

Thinking of buying a house in Italy? Maybe you need to rent an apartment for a holiday or an event you may be attending? Whatever the reason for your interest in Italian property, Petty Son and Prestwich can help you realise your dreams.

What Italy has to offer

As with any major European country, Italy is full of contradictions. On one hand it has some of the liveliest cities on the continent, while on the other there are quiet picturesque villages that have seemingly remained untouched for centuries. You can get whatever you want from Italy, and a lot comes down to the area you choose and the type of property you wish to buy or rent.

Culturally, Italy is a magnificent place to live or visit. From the history of ancient Rome through to opera and the world famous art and architecture found across the whole country, so there’s plenty to keep your inner culture vulture satiated. Sartorial elegance also plays a big part in Italy’s heritage, with fashion giants such as Gucci, Armani, Prada, and Versace all hailing from here. Shopping is a way of life in many of the big cities too, and Milan plays host to their Fashion Week semi-annually; an event that rivals London, New York, and Paris for style and class.

Italy’s geographical position means that its weather can vary greatly from city to city. Overall, the climate here is fantastic, but it’s important to do your research on each region before making the leap. Places such as the Amalfi Coast and the Italian Riviera enjoy good weather all year round, as do the Italian islands, Sardinia and Sicily.

Wherever you choose, opportunities abound for you to live la dolce vita here. After all, this is the country that has given the world both pizza and ice cream! In many ways, the country is synonymous with food. Italians can cook, and the cost of eating out here is low compared to other countries in Europe. For those who are thinking of buying property in Italy for more long-term reasons, food shopping is inexpensive too. However, the question is, will your culinary skills match that of the locals?
