We are planning to move to Italy in 2 years. We have been thinking of buying property in Sicily but have heard so many conflicting stories....its rundown..etc etc....We do carpentry and refurbish old furniture (basically painting etc...so modernise old pieces)so that will be how we will make our money. Do you think there is a market down there for it?
Would love to hear what you think?
Generally speaking, the Northern region of Italy is considered to be more costly than the South. However, this will depend on whether you are considering moving to an urban or rural area.
