On the edge of a village and close to countryside walks, this house has two French windows facing the street (the pavement in front belongs to the house). One opens into a kitchen and the other to a living room with wood-burning stove set into the fireplace. There is also a bathroom on the ground floor. Upstairs are two bedrooms. The Le Vigeant motor racing circuit is nearby and the pretty town of L’Isle Jourdain, with its open-air swimming pool, is 3.5 km away.

Below the town is a cove that is only accessible by boat as it is at the bottom of a cliff: the nearest beach is 8km away.
Set in the hills close to Chieti city, this three-storey stone property comprises two attached houses in about an acre and a half of land (0.6 hectares).
