Additional Information:

The house stands on the site of the original, historic walls which form the nucleus of Carunchio with its medieval tower. The small mountain villages nestle in extensive woods and rich green meadows with broad horizons and healthy air. It is a precious jewel where the owner can spend pleasant and relaxing holidays, rediscovering the charm of a simple life, "far away from the large urban centres besieged by smog, noise and frenetic daily life".


This incredible town has, in the past, been acclaimed as one of the Most Beautiful Villages in Italy. It has a population of 618 and is 607 metres above sea level. The surrounding landscape is stunning with views to the Majella Mountains and National Park to the Gargano promontory in Apulia.

The church of San Giovanni Battista is at the highest point of the town, and from it, the medieval buildings and houses cascade down the hillside. It is a lovely settlement to explore and the best way to discover its treasures is by walking through the ancient streets and alleys.

The town has good facilities including post offices, cash machine, pharmacy, restaurants, bars, butcher, baker and two general stores. The area is renowned for its delicious cuisine and a wide range of high quality wines.

Our properties

We work with key residential and licensed agencies in Italy. Each of our associates brings to us a large and varied portfolio of properties. This allows us to provide you with the widest selection of properties in the Regions of Abruzzo and Molise and across all price ranges.

We market these properties on our website, Rightmove and social media channels. This gives them exposure to both a UK and worldwide audience. From a holiday home on the Adriatic coast to a permanent house in the historic town of Penne, we can find your ideal property. We can also suggest restoration projects and land allowing you to build your own.

Our services

We promote property for sale in Abruzzo and Molise on behalf of our network of Italian estate agents, all of whom are registered with the FIAIP (Federazione Italiana Agenti Immobilliari Professionali), which is the industry’s governing body. This ensures that all documents and the final contract, in relation to your purchase, will fully comply with Italian laws and provide you with complete protection.

We also market property on behalf of private property owners who may wish to deal with us directly for ease of language and locality. One of our local colleagues can visit the property to take photographs and prepare a property description, if required. Once again, the contract will be overseen by an FIAIP agent, ensuring peace of mind.

Once you decide to purchase a property and contact us, our sales team will analyse your detailed property requirements before conducting a thorough search of all the properties that might suit. The next stage is normally a trip to Abruzzo and Molise, not only to view a selection of these properties, but to relax and enjoy the local ambience. This is a vital part of the purchase process as the area will become an important feature in your future life. Not only do we advise on property viewings but we also facilitate the entire viewing trip with recommended places to stay and areas to explore.

Once a property is decided upon, we leverage our local network of professionals to assist you through the process of obtaining tax certificates, opening bank accounts, validating property deeds and local planning consent, through to the necessary translation of documents and obtaining the best possible currency rates for the purchase transaction. We can even put you in touch with companies specialising in Italian mortgages, if required.
