The Italian lakes region has for millennia enraptured visitors, with some of the country’s most sought-after property located here.
Now HomesAndVillasAbroad.Com, one of the leading Italian property companies, can announce it is significantly broadening its portfolio of apartments and villas for sale in the region in response to demand from its clientele seeking to purchase real estate here.
To this end the company has signed partnerships with a number of real estate agents in the lake district to market their portfolios to a wider, multinational client base.
Homes and Villas Abroad is a complete package provider for people purchasing in Italy and has also hired a team of bilingual specialists in the lakes area to ensure the company offers as tailor-made a service as possible to its customer base, drawn from throughout the world.
Languages that the company caters for are English, German, French, Italian, Norwegian, Russian and Spanish.
Marketing head Simon Llewellyn commented: “Demand for homes in the lakes arearemains solid, in particular with clients from Russia, with units boasting a lake view understandably being most important on their wishlist.
“It is an area in which we were already had a presence, but we decided to seek additional partners to help us in meeting increasing demand.
“Despite the enduring appeal of Tuscany, the lakes region is one of Italy’s most beautiful areas but is not as out of reach financially as many people think; our prices start at about US$130,000 for a single-bedroom condo.
“Despite famous names such as actor George Clooney, soccer coach Jose Mourinho and airline tycoon Sir Richard Branson all owning expensive mansions here, there is something to suit pretty much all pockets.”
The region’s principal lakes are Como, Maggiore, Garda, Orta, Iseo and Endine.
There are excellent transport links, thanks to the six nearby airports. The nearest is 30 minutes away in Lugano, just over the Swiss border. There are three others in Milan, all within a 90-minute radius, while the final two are slightly further afield in Verona and Brescia.
