your home. If you want all of these positive things and want to

gives the home owner easy access to both mountains and coast. The
Alps to the north are complemented by the Apennine mountain range,
running like a spine, down the middle of the country. The mountains
sweep down to 7,600 km of sumptuous coastline and golden beaches.

and summer days spent lounging on the beach and swimming in the
warm waters of the Mediterranean.
