the Villa is yours, for one Euro.

A stretch of 3700 decaying villas in Western Sicily are being sold for a Euro a piece- What's the catch?

Buyers must restore the Villas within two years- using the talents of local builders, plumbers, etc. The Mayor of Silemi organized the effort with the intent of stimulating the economy and restoring the historical beauty of the original architectural standards.

To buy: +1 39 924 991 111
