Fabled landscapes, glitzy cities, and year-round sensuous climate await people who wish to own property in Tuscany. Because of its unique offerings, it is no wonder why the region holds a special place in the hearts of foreign and local home buyers. Tuscany’s property market is one of the richest, safest, and most stable in Italy, not to mention that the region is probably the most sought after by locals and non-Italians alike.
Venice and Rome are huge tourist cities, but when it comes to property investments, people are more drawn towards the rich region of Tuscany. Its countryside is the quintessential Italian landscape, with its rolling hills, olive groves, vineyards, and cypress tree lines. Tuscany has a reputation of being one of the most idyllic in Italy. Not only is it an attractive region to visit (its cities are among Italy’s most visited)--it is also one of the best places to settle down and invest in.
Florence with its steadfast Duomo, Siena and its grand piazza, and Pisa with its iconic tower are only among the most well-known destinations in Tuscany, which is why it is firmly fixed in people’s minds as a place of culture, art, and sophistication. Over the years, the region has become one of the most highly praised and prized by modern home buyers in and outside of Italy.
While certain areas in the region do attract high premiums on properties, Tuscany isn’t that expensive everywhere. It is true that it has some of the highest priced estates in the world, but there are still many parts where you can find a wealth of reasonably-priced properties and some surprisingly inexpensive homes and apartments in some of the loveliest areas. In the lush mountainous areas north of Lucca, for instance, it is not hard to find a village house under €100,000 or an average-size country home for only €250,000. Similar price ranges can be expected in the far south areas of the region. While rental returns on these locations may not be as lucrative as Florence or other centrally located cities, they are great options for when you are mostly interested in maintaining a nice Tuscan rest house for your own.
Tuscany has a strong and stable real estate market, and this remains true wherever you may choose to buy. The property market in the region is in exceptional health and is only minimally perturbed by the fluctuations in the world economy.
