Stunning town in southern Italy sells hundreds of houses for just a euro each

Are you looking to move abroad?

If you want to live in Italy, a town is now selling off hundreds of its homes all for just a euro each.

The Sicilian town of Castiglione di Sicilia is offering up the 900 abandoned homes in order to bring new life into the area.

It lies on the slopes of Mount Etna and it's close to the beaches of Sicily's picturesque east coast.

Officials are hoping to sell off hundreds of these homes in the town that have been abandoned.

About half of them are ruined but just think you can buy a home abroad for one euro.

The rest are in a better condition and will also be sold off for low prices.

According to CNN, Mayor Antonino Camarda has undertaken an ambitious project to breathe new life into his village.

It is believed the population shrunk from 14,000 in the early 1900s to barely 3,000 today.

The mayor said: "We have a huge architectural heritage to rescue, packed with history.

"Over time, too many people have left, leaving behind a bunch of old, picturesque houses, many even dating back to the Renaissance."

He added: "We've carried out an in-depth study cataloguing each property based on maps and land registry data.

"According to their conditions buildings will be sold at different prices, starting from €1."

If there's a lot of interest in the same property, there will be an auction held.

Buyers will have to complete renovations within three years and no deposit is payable as a guarantee for the works.

However, owners will have to take out an insurance policy from a bank worth €4,000. For more information visit the website.
