Home » Italy’s Most Luxurious Homes and the Top Areas to Purchase Them
Foreign buyers (and others) continue to take an interest in the luxury property sector in Italy. This differs markedly from other segments of real estate in that it is exclusive and not for everyone. In fact, luxury houses, unlike other types of residences, represent only a small part of the real estate market that caters only to a certain target clientele. Generally, those who buy such properties already know the Bel Paese and appreciate its distinctive features. More precisely, this type of target is mainly of international origin. According to some notary statistics, about 70% of buyers of luxury real estate are non-Italian.
Why Buy a Luxury Property?
There are so many reasons that can make a person want to buy luxury real estate Italy. For example, many people want to start afresh, changing their lives completely, switching jobs or deciding to work remotely. They then decide to move and live in an exclusive property in one of Italy’s most beautiful cities, perhaps to enjoy their retirement or youth.
Another reason, not to be overlooked in any case, is the economic one. Those who can afford it, in fact, tend to buy luxury properties in Italy with their future in mind. Finally, as anticipated, these transactions are mainly planned by foreigners who, fascinated by the beauty of the peninsula and the lifestyle so unique and often very different to what they are used to, decide to buy luxury real estate there.
Where to Buy Luxury Houses
In the ranking of the regions with the most luxury homes in its territory, Tuscany can be mentioned first of all. The latter, in fact, represents for those who visit it even once a real journey through history, landscapes and Renaissance art. Chianti, the Val d’Orcia, the Crete Senesi and Versilia are just some of the beauties to be found in Tuscany. This area is home to several luxury properties whose beauty and history attract many buyers from all over the world.
Another location you should definitely consider if you want to buy a luxury home is Lombardy. The latter is often immediately associated with Milan, the undisputed fashion capital, and its frenzy. This region, however, is known not only for its catwalks and futuristic skyscrapers, but also for its beautiful lakes: think of Lake Como, Lake Garda, Lake Maggiore, Lake Iseo and many more. This beautiful area offers not only natural beauty but also exclusive and charming residences overlooking breathtaking views. The most popular are the houses that offer a direct view of the lake and a connection to the shore (e.g., with a private beach where you can switch off and sunbathe in the warmer months of the year).
Moreover, when speaking of locations where one can find beautiful luxury real estate, one cannot fail to make a brief mention of Piedmont. It is certainly not a location that offers a view of the sea and does not enjoy the same prestige that, conversely, characterises Lombardy, however, these lands also boast breathtaking landscapes and classy homes. One of the most beautiful areas of Piedmont is undoubtedly Monferrato, characterised by picturesque farmsteads and an area rich in wine cultivation, famous for having become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In the list of areas where many people want to buy luxury real estate, there is clearly a location in southern Italy, that is, Apulia. Indeed, the ‘heel of Italy’ offers natural beauty and beautiful luxury homes, especially in Salento, an area located between the Ionian and Adriatic Seas.
Moving up a bit, however, it is possible to reach the beautiful Amalfi coast, a place where the sky and the sea tend to merge and offer a breathtaking panorama. Naples is also a passionate city, a source of attraction for thousands of tourists who each year decide to set off to admire the beauty of Vesuvius, Capri, and all that the area has to offer, including the various luxury properties that can be found in this splendid area of southern Italy.
