As part of the new program we are running in Italy for sustainable development we are helping landowners and existing projects to
We have made a list of properties that are half-developed or which we believe are amazingly suitable for the creation of experiential tourism. Because this program we are running is geared towards rural development, its not just about connecting owners and buyers, or finding the best site etc, its about taking a whole area and marketing it, helping it become more developed, finding ways to get people to regenerate it.
Our current phase of the program is focusing on two amazing valleys in the heartland of Abruzzo, the Sangro and the Aventino, both of which are at the foothills of the Majella massif, with dotted medieval villages who aren’t touched by time, lakes (Bomba, and Lago di Casoli), and beautiful nature are what you can expect from this
The other day I went on a site survey for one of the properties we are looking to help develop, and as it is so remarkable we decided to feature it separately.
It comprises of 7 hectares of open meadow with ancient oaks, the landscape reminds one of an English estate rather than an Italian one, there are further 3 hectares of land of forest.
The property was bought as a project that has never been completed, and the large historic villa was sold separately, although it too can be bought separately if of interest.
The site location is also very special, because although Abruzzo is an amazing land to discover, its mountain villages and town are usually little on the abandoned side, but Castle di Sangro boasts an endless stream of tourism, mainly because it is so close to the ski area of Roccaraso and because it lies on the valley bottom. Some of the local hotels are booked all year round and that is with 100 rooms or more, very unusual for Abruzzo.
A project to develop the site was already in place and received planning permissions – it comprises a main two-story restaurant and rooms for staying overnight, the building is of log cabin construction. A further and separate building that was meant to be used as a bar, and two wooden sheds or barns for horses etc.
Another advantage of this site, is that the owner is a log cabin builder, and he works very closely with an architect that already knows all the ins and outs of this property, one who already applied for planning for the site, this means that the long open-ended period of planning permissions and finding a builder to
We love this site and feel it is by far the best opportunity we have seen so far in Abruzzo for a top end glamping site in nature. Having us onboard also means that an array of structure makers, from yurts to cabins, hot tubs and sauna are also available to choose from at discounted prices. Contact us to find out the price and more and hope you too will love this project. We can email the old planning permission and structure plans too for you to consider.
