A village in the Southern part of Italy attempts to put vigor again to its tourism.
The project “Operation Beauty” offers an insane deal of attracting tourists as residents. This is in attempt to increase the town’s population.
Cinquefrondi is a tiny village in the southern region of Calabria, Italy. it is offering homes for €1 only. Due to the pandemic, young residents may opt to leave their town to find work in bigger cities.
The town’s mayor Michele Conia said about 12 houses are already available. The town’s houses are usually smaller in size which are roughly about 40 to 50 square meters wide. They can be easily renovated with this size.
Furthermore the deal asks prospect homeowners to pay an annual policy insurance fee amounting to €250. They need to do this until renovations are completed.
They will be fined €20,000 later on if they fail to complete the styling within 3 years.
In the previous cases from other cities, homeowners usually complete the work ahead of time.
Nonetheless, other villages in Italy are also offering similar schemes.
However, they are requiring homeowners to place a down payment when purchasing their home.
