Grottammare (Marche)

Where should you buy your dream home and move to Italy next year?

Marche and Abruzzo are among the 24 best places in the world to live after retirement, according to Forbes which has drawn up a list of top destinations worldwide, as well as a list of the best states and counties in the US for 2019, based on the experience of American expats in Italy.

Marche is once again named among the best places for a good retirement after a lifetime of work. The American magazine cites the region among the ideal locations, but back in 2010 another US magazine, the AARP (American Association of Retired Persons), had already placed it among the top 5 destinations in the world to choose to spend your retirement years.

Abruzzo was also crowned in 2016 for the same virtue by the US Huffington Post – it ranked among the 12 best destinations in the world.

These two regions that face the Adriatic sea are therefore appreciated all over the world and reconfirmed year on for the great potential they offer.

Why Marche or Abruzzo?

According to Forbes the indicators chosen are: cost of living, quality of healthcare, formalities for obtaining residence, and the great climate as well as direct flights for those coming from America for example.
But the regions not only offers wellness and tranquillity, but also excellent value for money in terms of real estate compared to the rest of Italy.

Many international would-be buyers looking for their dream property in the ‘bel paese’ are already showing a growing interest in these areas. As a matter of fact, according to Gate-away.com statistics, the number of requests we received in the first 6 months of 2018 for Abruzzo and Marche increased respectively by 30.66% and 7.44% compared to the same period in 2017.

    Hi. I have been contemplating buying a small place in Italy for years. I am American born and had obtained dual citizenship but it has since expired. Would it be beneficial for me to renew my dual citizenship as a first step?
