You’ll find on this site properties divided according to their location or destination: Village Property, Country Property, Hotels, B&B, Mansions, Estates, Working & Wine Farms.

Village Property
Period Town or Village houses. They can be small and simple, sometimes with a little garden or a small terrace. Or impressive ‘Case Padronali’ with huge cellars  and frescoed elegant interiors. But they share the same important character, spectacular views over the countryside, or  more intimately onto the streets of  medieval villages, which have always maintained their exquisite original architecture.                                   Our comment: Growing interest towards these properties,  as more people are getting attracted by the particular village lifestyle and comfort. Sometimes you will find them totally untouched, sometimes you will have to do some remodeling or updating, but they will always be  extremely charming and full of character.
Country Property
Country houses or farmhouses scattered on the rolling hills are everybody’s dream: a beautiful house with vaulted ceilings and generous ancient beams, the extraordinary views, flowers everywhere, dining alfresco with friends under the pergola, perfumed jasmine and elegant wisteria, the singing of crickets and the fireflies in the summer evenings, or round the fireplace during the winter….who wouldn’t like that?
You will find in Arcadia many of them in perfect condition and ready to welcome you…..others might need even the roof attending to; your personal touch will always be important to make them become your true home.
Our comment:
High demand and relatively low number of them, in this area which is precious and untouched.  And so it will always be: no new houses are allowed in the countryside, especially  in front of your favorite place for your morning coffee. When you buy your house, it comes with a view!
