For centuries Italy has been famous for its resorts, beautiful warm seas, fine culture, very interesting traditions and a stable economy (despite all the financial troubles around the globe, Italian banks have shown to be among the safest and most reliable).
Its mild climate attracts people from all over the world, the Alps and Appennine mountains forming a natural barrier against winter northerly and easterly winds, whilst the Mediterranean sea maintains coastline temperatures to very pleasant levels during colder months.
Amazing recreation structures and natural settings make Italy one of the world’s leaders in sea and mountain resorts leisure travel, when with its several climate zones, perfect ski-resorts and exits to 5 different seas buying a property in Italy could become a good business investment, too.
Tuscany - always popular among buyers- is not only famous for its historical cities and beautiful beaches, or countryside landscapes, but also for its glorious vineyards, olive groves and as a consequence for its famous wines (Chianti, Brunello, Momtecucco, Morellino, to name but a few) and olive oil, without mentioning the local culinary traditions, which are something special ( from purely vegetarian to Fiorentina steaks and wild boar dishes), the Mediterranean diet remains one of the best to keep in good shape and healthy while enjoying the best life can offer.
Whether you are looking for a castle, a villa, an apartment in Italy or you are looking to set up business as an Agritourism – very popular in Tuscany – check us out at Santini Gruppo Immobiliare, and whatever your budget our staff will be happy to start looking for you.
So, buying your new residence in Tuscany will not only get you a new property, but great outdoors, beautiful nature, tranquillity and harmony, with the possibility of improving your general health while imbedding yourself in a land so rich in traditions and culture. Tuscany is also very attractive from an investment point of view, with real estate market prices generally increasing on average by 12-15% annually, when letting a well located property can produce revenue, too, with rent prices being very high during high season.
Florence, the capital of Tuscany- and, briefly in the past, former capital of the Italian Republic - is of course in great demand, but real estate here is among the most expensive in Italy, being Florence the basin of the Renaissance and a walking museum in itself; this alone, combined with a shortage of objects for sale, makes the option of buying outside of Florence, or of any other major Tuscan city, a very viable solution.
Another main Tuscan city Siena, probably Italy's loveliest medieval city, world-known for its famous Palio, a festival and horse race that takes place on the piazza del Campo two times each summer.
Many buyers also opt for the Tuscan countryside or coastal towns and villages, from where it is possible to visit the main cities with just a short trip.
For example, if you bought a property in the tranquil and charming Grosseto, you’d be about 15 minutes by car from the beach to enjoy your summer, and about 60 minutes from the nearest ski-resort ( mount Amiata ) to enjoy your winter season.
Apart from the most obvious trends like buying in or around Florence, Pisa and Siena in the proximity of the Chianti region, or next to the Arno river, Maremma is now gradually getting discovered as probably the most attractive area for buyers in Tuscany under all aspects. Grosseto is the capital of Maremma, a flat strip of land along the southern coastal corner of the Tuscan region, backed by gentle hills which are peppered with delightful villages such as Scansano ( the Morellino DOC wine is produced here), all generally ancient castles once owned by war lords that centuries ago -Scansano dates back to the XIII century .- were engaged in waging war against each other on a very regular basis. The whole of Maremma is a treasure which will not fail to enchant who will simply poke an interested eye into what this relatively little known portion of Tuscany has to offer. On the coast, check Monte Argentario, Porto Santo Stefano, Porto Ercole, Orbetello, Talamone, Alberese and its natural park full of wild life and famous for its cow-boys (butteri) – William Cody, better known as Buffalo Bill, visited Grosseto in the 19 century, and his cow-boys were beaten in a local rodeo by the Maremman Butteri-not forgetting Marina di Grosseto, Castiglione della Pescaia, Punta Ala, Follonica, without mentioning the countless hidden bays , and sandy beaches, that you will discover, and of course the islands of Giglio, Giannutri and Montecristo, with Elba island also extremely near.
Santini Gruppo Immobiliare will guide you through this journey of discovery, with its range of properties for sale or rent. Buying in Tuscany and in Maremma in particular will be your best choice, for a quality of environment and objects that have nothing to envy in relation to more expensive or better known areas of Italy. So, think again and think Tuscany, and in Tuscany, think Maremma, where you can be near to everything, and still enjoy the unspoiled nature that here is on offer to you.
