Gay Open House: Livin’ La Dolce Vita!

If you love Italy, as we do, then there is so much more to this wonderful country than Tuscany, Rome, and the Amalfi Coast. 

Beautiful and historic as these areas are, there is so much more to explore. If you can bear to leave the classic hotspots behind you can get much more real estate for your buck without compromising on the joy of Italian living. 

This month’s feature takes us to the east coast of Italy, to the region of Le Marche. Nestled between the Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea, Marche is a must-visit for its picturesque medieval hill towns. These are famous for their unique character and charm, such as Urbino, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its exquisite Renaissance architecture and art. Visitors can also explore the region’s stunning coastline, with its golden sand beaches, hidden coves, and crystal-clear waters, perfect for swimming, sunbathing, and water sports. Marche is the perfect destination for anyone looking to experience the authentic side of Italy while admiring its natural beauty and rich culture.

Our monthly real estate feature sees us team up again with Welshman Rhodri Ellis Owen and Canadian Jameson Farn at LGBTQ Real Estate to bring you some of the finest vacation rentals and real estate on the planet. Based in the south of France, but covering properties all over Europe, the guys at LGBTQ Real Estate pride themselves on their VIP level of personal service which is always delivered without prejudice. The business is dedicated to helping LGBTQ+ sellers, buyers, and their friends find their perfect property match.
