An alternative to buying your house in Italy

Italian houses for sale as Fractional Ownership

Did you know there is another way to own a luxury Italian house for a fraction of the cost? Fractional or Collective Ownership allows buyers to collectively own a luxury Italian house with a pool and land. Authentic Italian properties set amongst vineyards and olive groves and enjoying sea views in locations of outstanding natural beauty.    

As a lifestyle choice, fractional ownership makes sense as the majority of us struggle to take more than 5 weeks’ vacation each year. As a fractional owner you will enjoy five weeks in a luxury property for each share purchased, but annual maintenance and running costs are divided with fellow owners. 

The Pinelli Estate 

The Pinelli estate in Campania is a superb example of a luxury Italian house with pool and land being sold fractionally. The Pinelli estate is expertly managed to guarantee owners an outstanding Italian experience every time.  For more details of  the Pinelli estate take a look at our fractional ownership page

We are constantly assessing houses as potential candidates for Fractional Ownership in Tuscany, Piemonte, Puglia. Le Marche and other popular regions. Contact Us if you wish to be notified as new fractional properties come onto the market.
