Farmhouses and countryside properties to renovate in italy: pros and cons

Italian property renovation is not always simple. Although we provide these many benefits, there are downsides to renovating in Italy. Factors such as timeworn plumbing, rickety window and door fixtures, confusing bureaucratic issues, and language barriers all play a role in making Italian renovations more difficult. However, although we recognize these barriers, we also promote the many advantages to renovating in Italy—and the types of renovations that are most beneficial.

Renovating country homes in the Italian countryside not only offers you beautiful landscapes and cultural experiences, but it provides three critical benefits. The first of these is sustainability. These homes are sustainably built, and work towards sustainability policies in Italy; and allow you to give back to the environment, by just living in a beautiful home.

The second advantage is the tax benefit. That is correct. Renovating an old farmhouse, country cottage, or country home is indeed a demanding task; but it provides income tax incentives for owners to do so. Despite the red tape surrounding these types of renovations, there are even more tax incentives and subsidies that are provided in these locations that function as businesses.

The third, and final, the benefit is the historical and cultural importance. Renovating a ruin means seizing a life-changing opportunity: that to experience life in a truly special place, within ancient responsive walls filled with character and energy. Living in historical premises implies you will own a home that “speaks to you”, telling you about local culture, history, and tradition.

Foreign buyers should be careful with who they contract the job out to, to ensure that the renovation honors the timeless and culturally significant Italian property. Relying on trustworthy local advisors and contractors is the key to renovation success in Italian homes.

It is also important to note that the interior styling of the farmhouse or cottage is just as important also. Just because the building is old and timeless, the interior furnishings and designs do not necessarily have to be. That said, many of these old buildings have elegant and splendid designs and colors, so only minor touch-ups are required to enhance rough surfaces.

The homes can then be furnished and styled with simple pieces and ideas to accent and complement the existing designs and elegance. All a person needs is to complement and add to the building’s pre-existing character, keeping the place’s cultural and environmental identity in mind.

However, it is again important to make note of the fact that foreigners gain tax benefits from renovating an old farmhouse or cottage in the countryside. They are eligible for renovation bonuses, as well as many other municipal bonuses such as landscape bonuses and even redevelopment subsidies. Municipal websites provide lists and policies on what subsidies are available, and where they are applicable.

Again, though, caution and foresight are important for all non-residents engaging in renovations. The renovation of an ancient farm or building should only be entrusted to professionals who have conducted thorough historical and legal analyses on the property.
