Just up the road from us there is a villa (well what was once a villa) which commands a great view of the area and, in it’s day would have been a grand place to live.
It has an internal courtyard and part of a roof. As with many old villas it has no real foundations so would require a rebuild from the ground up. But, given the laws around older villas, you couldn’t change the design during the renovation – or even add in any doors or windows that aren’t already part of the structure.
This type of property, as is, on a couple of acres of land around here – about €500k. Any takers?
