The fall is here and the thoughts of vacation are looming over everyone’s mind. It is only natural. The last two years have been difficult due to the pandemic. However, things seem a little better than before thanks to vaccination drives being implemented by countries all over the world. In fact, many European countries have also opened up and are welcoming Americans who are vaccinated. So, if you are looking for ideas on which destination to visit this fall, we have created a list for you.
It was a relief when Italy opened its tourism doors to Americans and reconfirmed that they would remain open for citizens of the United States. Besides, Italy is just as magical in the fall as it is in the summers. The weather is idyllic for sightseeing and it is also the harvest season, which means wine festivals in different regions of the country. You can visit Milan, Dolomites, Venice, Puglia or Sicily. Every place in this country is just gorgeous.
The sight of stately farmhouses and quaint towns is heavenly. This coupled with the breath-taking views of the maple trees, with their leaves turning yellow from green and then to crimson, is just what you should experience during your fall vacation. From late September to mid-October is when you will find the peak leaf season. Get ready for this rural getaway.
In the light of the pandemic, Rwanda is taking Covid quite seriously and has continued gorilla-trekking but at a reduced capacity. The mission was to keep the primates protected from the virus while also ensuring the funding for gorilla conservation did not stop. Furthermore, the brief downpours only add to the landscape’s charm with its vibrant greenery and flowers.
It rains in the Maldives through October. However, that is no reason for stopping you from going to this beautiful island at the southern end of India. The weather creates favorable conditions for you to surf. In addition, the temperature is at a pleasant 80 degrees.
Visiting Italy is on many people’s bucket lists, and in these rather crazy times, it seems more doable than ever as Italy’s €1 (roughly $1.20) homes are back. The beautiful village of Castropignano is following in the steps of Salemy and Santo Stefano di Sessanio, both of which have launched invitations to encourage newcomers at the end of 2020.
Not Just Another €1 Auction
The 1 euro auctions on properties in Italy and all over the world isn’t new. However, Castropignano is doing things a bit differently. The mayor, Nicola Scapillati wants to match interested parties with the right house for them, instead of just selling a given property to the highest bidder.
The mayor doesn’t want the village invaded by a property stampede or to turn into the latest housing speculation deal in Italy. To do this, Scapillati is moving along two parallel paths, reaching out to both previous owners and potential buyers.
Buying a House Through Email
Another interesting thing is that instead of going through the authorities, the mayor wants interested parties to email him directly at nicola.scapillati[AT]me.com with a detailed plan of how they intend to renovate and what they would like to do with the property. Whether the buyers want to make the property a home, store, B&B, or artisan shop, they should have a pretty strong argument and a visionary plan of how they will do it.
Castropignano, Italy – A Dream Village
As an idyllic village with around 900 residents, the area boasts a medieval castle. The town is located a few miles from Campobasso in Molis, on top of a hill overlooking the valley of the Biferno River.
Without a doubt, Castropignano is already a great destination to visit and live in Italy. With Scapillati’s unusual idea of selling properties, the village has an opportunity to be rebuilt and renovated in good taste. That’s the catch to get a €1 house – renovating the property within three years of the purchase and a down payment guarantee (€2000 or roughly about 2400 US dollars) which will be returned once the works are finished.
