Our Services

Why not start off your stay in Abruzzo, with the unique experience of a personalized tour of the area?

We are very fortunate that one of our team, Manolo, is a qualified tour guide. He was born locally and has a deep knowledge of the area. He speaks excellent English and has lived abroad, so has an international understanding. We recommend that you take the tour at the beginning of your stay in Abruzzo, to give you an introductory insight into the beauty and magic of the area. Manolo can show you sights that would be difficult to find on your own, and he can also recommend additional places for you to visit during the rest of your stay.

You can choose from a wide range of places to visit, and activities to participate in. Each tour is totally personal for you. Plus, whilst touring, you can chat about your property requirements, the buying process in Italy, and many other topics related to buying here. Manolo also carries out property viewings, so you can discuss your favourite properties with him.

You can choose from the following activities and places to visit:

  • Wine tasting in one of the many award-winning wineries in the area.
  • Cheese making, at a local farm, followed by a cheese-based lunch.
  • Pasta making at a local restaurant.
  • Olive picking and olive oil tasting, depending on the season.
  • Visiting a chocolate shop, owned by an award-winning chocolatier.
  • Walking along the sandy beaches of Pineto, arguably the best beach in Abruzzo.
  • Visiting a selection of hilltop towns and villages, such as the Roman town of Atri, and the unique surrounding countryside, made up of rock formations called ‘Calanchi’.
  • Walking in the mountains, along nature trails, and maybe spot some local wildlife.

In addition, you can make your own requests, either to visit a certain place, or take part in a type of activity.

You can choose the day of your tour, any day of the week, subject to availability.  Manolo will contact you before your arrival and he’ll arrange the day according to what you tell him. On the day, he will collect you from your accommodation and be your chauffeur for the whole day. So, all you have to do is relax and enjoy Abruzzo!

Here is what some clients told us, after having enjoyed their tour:

We had the most wonderful and memorable day with Manolo touring the beautiful Abruzzo region, experiencing delicious food and meeting incredible people. Manolo picked up our group of 4 at our villa right on time. From the moment we met him we knew we would have a great day. He is so friendly and warm and his English is great. We had asked for a food tour with cheese making and chocolate but left it up to Manolo to customize the rest. We were not to be disappointed. He is from the region and knows so much about local culture that we got to experience a truly insightful tour. We began the day viewing and learning about the some of the stunning cliffs of Abruzzo and a small shrine with a rich, local history that we would never have known about otherwise. We then travelled to Atri for a look at the town and its Roman Cathedral. We enjoyed coffee in the square then headed to Bisenti for market day and a chocolate tasting like no other. Centini Concezio chocolate shop is tucked away in this beautiful village where it is rumoured that Pontius Pilate was born, and is owned by a master chocolate maker who combines ingredients you would not believe to create luxury chocolate. The absolute highlight of the tour was the opportunity to make cheese followed by a lunch in the mountains at a sheep farm. We expected to enjoy this experience, but had no idea that we would be treated to the most delicious food. Tip - go very hungry. Our amazing host provided course after course of food. I lost count after 8 dishes! The food was so fresh and authentic. The cheese was served in so many ways and our host was such an accomplished chef. We will never forget the time we spent there surrounded by amazing scenery and true hospitality. We finished the day at a winery where the locals go. The perfect end to a perfect day. This tour was incredible value. We had a very full day. The personalized service and expert knowledge provided by Manolo was second to none. He knew exactly when to step back and when to engage so it felt like such an easy day. He is also an olive farmer and makes his own oil so we benefitted from his expertise in this regard as well. When we travel we always try to find a local producers tour because we gain the best insight to an area this way. Our tour with Manolo was the best one of these experiences we have ever had. I would highly recommend taking a tour at the beginning of your stay as Manolo will give you recommendations for the rest of your stay which allows you to get the most from your time in Abruzzo. We cannot wait to go back to one of the most beautiful parts of Italy and meet with Manolo again. Thank you so much for creating such special memories for us all.

Als je in Abruzzo op zoek gaat naar onroerend goed, dan kan onze kennis van de locale huizenmarkt u veel tijd en energie besparen. Als u vooraf al aangeeft wat uw wensen zijn, kunnen wij geschikte huizen voor u selecteren. Via email sturen wij u foto’s en details. Ook kunnen wij vooraf al het onroerend goed gaan bekijken of het inderdaad geschikt is, dat spaart u kostbare vakantietijd.

Als u hier bent, vergezellen wij u bij de kijksessies, vertalen waar nodig en geven u de nodige informatie. Wij kunnen helpen bij het openen van een Italiaanse bankrekening, en het aanvragen van een “codice fiscale” ( fiscaal nummer), deze heeft u nodig voordat u onroerend goed kunt aankopen. Wij zijn ons bewust van de bezorgdheid die gepaard gaat met het nemen van zo’n grote stap. Doordat wij zelf dit proces hebben doorlopen en velen hebben bij gestaan, hebben we een hoop kennis vergaard op dit gebied.

Als u eenmaal uw huis gekocht heeft, maakt u kennis met één van de aspecten van het Italiaanse leven, de enorme bureaucratie. Het gaat hier bijvoorbeeld om lokale belastingen en rekeningen van de nutsbedrijven, vaak voorzien van lange en moeilijk te begrijpen formulieren. Deze moeten betaald worden op het postkantoor. Ook eenvoudige dingen als het aanvragen van een vaste telefoon, kunnen veel tijd kosten en zijn soms moeilijk te regelen vanuit het buitenland.

Door middel van communicatie via de telefoon of mail, kunnen wij de essentiële link zijn met uw Italiaanse onroerend goed. Wij werken tegen een vast tarief per half uur, en na elke klus sturen wij een overzicht van de gedane werkzaamheden en het kostenplaatje.

We had a very large and unusual property and Tracey and colleagues did a great job selling it, they managed to find a buyer who loves our house and village. They were helpful and accommodating from the beginning, through to the final act.

While searching for our dream house in Italy, we “shortlisted” a long list of about 30 houses in various parts of Abruzzo. More than half of the houses were from Abruzzo Reality, as Tracey was one of the few real estate agents that responded to us, and promptly too. We met different real estate agents during our house-hunting trip. Tracey and Vincenzo stood out as they patiently listened to our requirements (and we were rather fussy about what we wanted!) and brought us to see the different houses. We read about the Daunting process of buying a house in Italy and different websites tell you different things. We were glad we could leave everything to Tracey and Vincenzo! They made the whole process so much easier as we had to go back to work and could not travel to Italy as often as we would have liked. After signing for our dream house, Tracey and Manolo (the do-it-all handyman) helped us with everything from cleaning the house, dealing with the utility company, to getting the house painted. We really appreciate their help!

Our search for a home in Abruzzo started at the end of 2017. After a lot of searching on the internet, we ended up on the website of Abruzzo Reality. What immediately struck us was that we could read this site in our own language. Which in itself was a plus. After the first mail we sent to Tracey, we were quickly surprised by her quick and professional answers. No question or comment was too much for her. She is the best in her profession and she has always supported us with advice and action. After we had visited our dream home and decided to buy it, she took care of all the administrative matters. From application Codice Fiscale, up to and including signing with the notary. Which was a great reassurance for us, knowing that we were assisted by someone who knew perfectly well how things work in Italy. Even after the purchase she still takes care of the administration and we can still contact her for advice. The smooth course of this sale has even prompted us to purchase a second home in Abruzzo. Without Tracey there was a big chance that our purchase would end up as a nightmare, now it remains a dream, thanks to her! We can therefore highly recommend Abruzzo Reality.

We used Tracey to sell our house in the Abruzzo. We found that the services she offered were consistently what was needed. It was never any problem for her to bring prospective purchasers, even though our house was a little off the beaten track. Having lived in the Abruzzo for many years she has local knowledge and an understanding of the culture and the people which all helps in the purchasing and selling process. We have no hesitation in recommending her services.

We found a perfect house, to retreat to, on the Abruzzo Reality website. Work commitments at the time meant that we couldn’t travel to see the house for several months. During this time, Tracey was in regular contact, gave us lots of useful information and was willing to arrange a viewing for us.

When we arrived in Abruzzo, everything was new to us and we didn’t know our way around. Tracey and Vincenzo agreed to pick us up from our holiday accommodation, they drove us to the house we wanted to view and they showed us a few others for comparison. During our time spent together, they gave us reassuring information about life in Abruzzo and about the house buying process in Italy. They helped us with submitting our offer and negotiating the price of the house.

In the months that followed, communication was frequent. We opted to have a survey conducted and Abruzzo Realty appointed a surveyor (geometra) for us. The results of this survey were very detailed and these were sent to us in both Italian and English. Throughout the whole house buying process Tracey liaised between us and the vendors.

On moving Tracey and Vincenzo met us at the property and they had organised for the handover of keys and also for us to reside at the house until the signing day. Tracey also made sure the codice fiscale (tax number) was completed in good time. They also accompanied us to the signing which was reassuring when there are so many people present and the documents are read out in both languages which takes a long time!

After completion of sale, Tracey helped with the transfer of utilities into our names. On several occasions Tracey has gone over and above what one would expect of an estate agent. She was friendly, helpful and professional through the whole process. The service we received through the whole buying process was really outstanding and gave us confidence to go ahead and buy in Abruzzo. It is without reservation that we would recommend the services of Tracey at Abruzzo Realty to prospective home buyers.

After living 8 years in Abruzzo, Italy, we felt it was time for another change in our lives and we put our house on the market. Within a year we sold it through Tracey and her colleague Vincenzo. We are very pleased with the way the sales process has gone. Tracey and Vincenzo offered help and gave advise wherever needed.
Currently, we have to make the latest changes by name at a view Italian utility companies and we are pleased to have the help of Tracey for realizing that. So we are very satisfied with the work of Tracey and Vincenzo. Thank you both!

In our search for houses in Abruzzo we came across several kind and helpful people in the various real estate agencies. However, from the very beginning Tracey has given us kind, informative and immediate responses to all our questions. So, when we met Tracey at our first trip to Abruzzo there was no doubt in our mind to chose her and Abruzzo Reality to help us.

Tracey has been guiding us from the first step of the Italian buying process until we finally received the keys to the house. And we are convinced that Tracey will ensure that the process of renovating the house will be as smooth as possible. Thank you.

"Tracey, you have been so very helpful with looking for a holiday place for us to buy. Without your help and translating there is no way we could have done it. We are very grateful, very many thanks."

When my wife and I decided to purchase a property in Italy we began our research of the regions of Italy and quickly came to the conclusion that Abruzzo was the region we would like to reside in. Now it was time to search properties. A quick Google search of real estate companies pointed us to Abruzzo Reality. Having found a few properties we were interested in I submitted my inquiry and received a prompt reply from Tracey. Thus began a wonderful, professional relationship that led us to a successful purchase of our house in just a few short months. The team of Tracey and Vincenzo, along with the assistance of Manolo (the jack-of-all-trades handyman) has made this a very painless journey to home ownership in another country. Tracey coordinated our process from beginning to end. We could not have accomplished this on our own. Vincenzo patiently showed us many properties and Manolo has assisted us with anything we have needed following the sale. If you are considering home ownership in Italy, you cannot go wrong with the Abruzzo Reality team to put your mind at ease and begin enjoying your new life in Italy.

From the outset of meeting Tracey and Vincenzo, whilst looking for our dream home, they were incredible helpful and friendly, right to the completion date. No question we asked went unanswered and they went above and beyond to find answers to some tricky questions on our behalf. We felt very supported throughout the process with their expert knowledge and would recommend their services highly.

From the word go we were impressed by Tracey's professionalism. She focused on exactly the type of property we wanted, not what she had to sell. Tracey spent a lot of time with us and offered much practical advice and we secured a perfect house meeting all our requirements. In addition, Tracey provided all the necessary information on Italian property law and much else besides about local issues. The whole process moved very smoothly to completion with Tracey and her colleagues always there to clarify any issues. A first class operation.

I want to share the great experience I had with my agent Tracey. I’m a US resident and earlier this year I decided to make my dream of owning a home in Italy a reality. I was lucky to find Abruzzo Reality in my search.
Tracey was instrumental in refining my search and ultimate purchase in Abruzzo.
Having no idea how to purchase a property in Italy, she was able to help me through entire process. Even after the sale, Tracey helped me connect with locals to get the services I needed, from utilities to having work done.
The process couldn’t have have smoother and I highly recommend Tracey.

From start to finish, Tracey and the Abruzzo Reality team are there to help. With finding the correct home with in the correct budget, to offering advice as to which is a good buy and which not so much. Need work done, they have contacts to help. Need a mortgage, they have contacts that can help with that to. The service doesn't stop with the purchase of a home either. Any care, guidance, or other assistance after the home purchase, Tracey can help. Being that English is her first language, this all makes a complicated process, that much easier. I can't say enough about the level of service received by Abruzzo Reality.

We cannot thank Tracey and Vincenzo enough for all the fabulous help and support they have given us throughout the process of finding a new home in Abruzzo, Italy. Their honesty, openness and friendly professionalism was everything we needed to feel confident at what was a daunting time. I would highly recommend both Tracey and Vincenzo to anyone looking to buy or sell in Abruzzo. True Gems that deserve every success. THANK YOU.

Our experience with Tracey Nicholas was professional and personable from the beginning of our purchase to closing. She guided us through the unfamiliar process of buying a home in Italy. She made what could of been an impossibility difficult process, understandable and comfortable. She and her staff were attentive to everything we required. It allowed my husband and I to focus on the joy and excitement of becoming owners in the fantastic Abruzzo area. I would recommend if you are purchasing in Abruzzo to use Tracey.

Selling a house in Italy we had heard was always difficult and could take years. For us our sale was very smooth and very quick with Tracey and the Abruzzo Reality team. Numerous people to view within the first few weeks and all viewings handled without fuss and at our pace. A couple of offers handled very well and final sale that went through without a hitch. Great service!

For the purchase of our house, we were lucky to have a real professional, who was able to advise us wisely, to find the property that fitted our needs and especially to follow us, to avoid any pitfalls during the purchase.
Professionalism, responsiveness, efficiency but above all an agency we can really trust and what an extraordinary thing, even 4 years after our purchase, we can always count on this agency when we have problems.
It is rare and precious.
We are very satisfied with this agency and strongly recommend the services of Abruzzo Reality.

One very often reads and hears about all the difficulties when buying a property in Italy. All the paper work, all the regulations to be followed, all the necessary things to be executed etc.  Me and my wife didn't experience any of these difficulties when we bought our property in lovely Loreto Aprutino. Tracey Nicholas, Abruzzo Reality, gave us the best service one can wish for.  She led us through the process in an excellent way. Not one single problem occurred.  She has also been a invaluable help to us, after our property investment. Nothing seems to be impossible for Tracey and she always help us with a smile on her lips. She is a great broker and a lovely, service-minded person, that we strongly can recommend without any doubt.

"Having decided emphatically that Abruzzo would be our holiday home location, we visited at Easter to look for our dream home. We met many agents but not one of them inspired us with trust in the manner in which Tracey did. We were led patiently through the house hunting process; initially via the “net” in England and then on the ground in Abruzzo.

Every detail of this potentially difficult process was taken seriously and sensitively. We were kept up to speed by being fed every morsel of information electronically as the deal unfolded whilst we were back home in England. The establishment of our ‘codice fiscale’ and Italian bank account were all facilitated for us. We came back to Italy to complete the purchase, just six weeks from first sight to completion."

We had been looking for a while to find a house in Abruzzo, when we made an appointment with Tracey. What a relief. Where we thought we were well prepared and made a list with houses to visit, Tracey had a much better view on what we needed and wanted. It was love on first sight with the house she suggested.

Being a foreigner in Italy, we could use all the help we could get. Tracey and her colleagues exceeded our expectations; not only did they give us tonnes of advice and information, they also helped with several practical issues. Thanks to Tracey we experienced a very smooth operation.

Besides the professionalism, Tracey excels in trustworthiness, and she transfers this feeling also to the people she works with. We appreciate her professional sight, but we appreciate her even more for the person she is.

I can advise everyone to engage with Tracey and her colleagues when you are looking for a house in Abruzzo.
