Cheap houses in Abruzzo. Bargain houses to buy in Italy. Houses for sale in Abruzzo. Italian homes for sale

I have just purchased my dream house with the help of ACA and Barry.

I found them efficient, professional and Barry has answered every question promptly even on weekends and evenings. I would highly recommend them to anybody buying a property abroad.

I had dealt with a number of estate agents in Abruzzo over a few years, but ACA's staff and service stand head and shoulders above everyone else.

From the outset I felt that they gave me sensible advice about buying and I never once felt like they were pushing me into a property that wasn't right for me. When I did find the right house, they were always by my side, helping me to negotiate the actual purchase process, setting up a bank account and negotiating with the notary and sellers.

 I recommend them 110% - it's a big deal to part with hard earned savings to buy yourself a piece of Abruzzo paradise, and you really couldn't do better than the team at ACA.

After losing a house I was buying in the L’Aquila earthquake of 2009, I ventured further south to the Chieti region and found another that was perfect. I was then introduced to ACA, who negotiated the sale for me and prepared all the paperwork.

The legal side of things was taken care of by the English speaking lawyers, Filomena Crognale and Piero Nasuti and the sale was completed quickly and without any problems.

I would recommend ACA above all real estate agencies in this area for their attention to detail and dedicated service.

Barry, thanks so much for all your help and kindness, and for making the buying of our house so quick and simple.

You have done more than was expected.

I would just like to say a big thank you to team ACA. I found the service invaluable while selling my house and the professionalism and attention to detail was second to none. You were on hand at all times and nothing was too much trouble. We found the help and advice spot on and would not hesitate to recommend your services whether buying a property or selling. Thank you guys; you took the worry out of a very stressful situation.

Excellent service, Barry went above and beyond to make sure we were looked after.

We were introduced to Barry and ACA by an English acquaintance who lives in Italy who assured us that he would help us find our ideal property. From the first contact we had with him, we had every confidence that he was the right person to help us: We had by then experienced other agents in the area who certainly did not fill us with the same confidence


After spending many enjoyable hours driving around beautiful Abruzzo we did indeed find our ideal property.

The irony was that Barry knew it was our ideal property before we did because he had listened to everything we had said, confused though we were and jumbled though our thought process was. We had never bought a property in Italy before. Barry willingly endured many hours with us driving round looking at several other properties before we realised that he was correct.

He had indeed found us our ideal property.


He has helped us through the purchase process and been there whenever we have needed him.

His help, guidance and advice has been invaluable as has that of Piero and Menina and their team.


We have no hesitation in recommending Barry and all the team at ACA.


B. Thompson. Lincolnshire

We had been thinking about buying a house in Italy for some time and it was just over a year ago that we visited “A Place in the Sun” exhibition at the NEC. We listened to talks on buying a house in Italy and we were somewhat concerned, as it seemed tricky. We turned round from the talk straight into Barry’s ACA display. Thank goodness we did, as immediately he put our mind at rest both in terms of the mechanics of buying a house but also the cost of houses, all of a sudden it looked possible

Barry took us to the house and we were besotted, it was the right house in the right place. The neighbours came to say hi and as our Italian is still a work in progress it was great to have Barry with us to chat to the neighbours.

It can’t have been more straightforward, yes there are differences with the UK but each step was made clear and easy to achieve. All involved, Barry, Piero and Menina were completely open and friendly but at all times professional.

We would recommend the team at ACA to anyone considering buying a house in Abruzzo, they will give you a clear path to follow and are always willing to help, they make it possible.

Testimonials - our clients have their say

We had never really heard of the Abruzzo region of Italy if I am honest – let alone considered buying a holiday home there. We then met ACA from our first conversation with the team we both felt that we could “trust” Barry and Piero. We were impressed with their professional approach; effective communication and obvious experience in supporting people like us embarking on making a dream become a reality.

Barry showed us a very broad selection of houses giving us expert advice about advantages and disadvantages of each property, he answered our questions honestly and openly and gave us a lot to think about and consider.

The whole process of buying our house was much easier than we had thought possible, it is a seamless service from beginning to end. I would thoroughly recommend the ACA team to anybody.

Richard and Jane Webster. Cheshire

I just wanted to say thank you to Barry for taking the time to look after me so well.

I would recommend ACA to anyone looking to buy here in Abruzzo.
