Colledimezzo – San Buono – Celenza

DCF 1.0

Colledimezzo, San Buono and Celenza are names I’d never heard until a couple of weeks ago when I started my property search in Abruzzo.

For the last seven or eight years I’ve told folks , we’re going to retire to Italy, but I’d always wondered if it were just a pipe dream. Now, here I am on Friday August 18th 2018, case packed, property viewings booked, trying to make our pipe dream come true. I’m not looking for a big expensive villa, but a nice home, with a beautiful view, and enough room to have friends and family come and stay.

I’m sixty, if I don’t do it now I never will.

The Last Adventure

“Ahh Thompason”

I love the Italian folk. I’d been trying to reserve a room in the Colledimezzo area so I could meet with my realtor and view some properties. Not many hotels, or B&B’s in rural Abruzzo. I’m sure everyone knows each other in those small towns and villages. Finally, after no luck with bookings, I called a hotel in Atessa.

“I’m looking for two rooms on August…..”

“Ahhh Thompason”

News travels fast. “We ave the rooms, no problem”

And so I’m all set. Flights booked, hotels booked, property viewings booked. I’m hoping that by the end of August I’ll be well on the way to buying my retirement home in Abruzzo. Our last adventure.
