For example, among historical investors, the Germans seem to be moving towards the Adriatic Riviera, the Venetian coast, as well as the Marches Conero and Salento, while the French buyers seem to love Liguria more. Tuscany, especially the Chianti area, appears to be the favourite destination for English people, who are also oriented towards Rome, Venice and Milan.
Generally speaking, however, Tuscany remains among the favourite destinations for the purchase of a second home, with 15% of requests; it is followed from Liguria (13%) and Puglia (12%). Off the podium, but still worthy of mention, are Sardinia (8.5%) and Abruzzo (7.5%).
In these areas, investors are kidnapped by small villages and their naturalistic and cultural heritage. Even though small towns are preferred in these regions, these spots must be close enough to the tourist centres to allow all the necessary comforts. Another great advantage of the purchase of a home in the above mentioned areas is the price for sure, which is considerably low.
The investing process often includes significant renovations too; these works aim to make the real estate more functional, so it could be easier to use it as tourist lease, when the building is not lived by the owners.
