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.

If you are coming to Italy in search of a property to buy, our knowledge of the local housing market can save you time and energy. If you tell us your requirements before your visit, we will suggest possible properties for you to view. We can email you photos and details and even visit properties, to check for suitability, saving you precious holiday time once you arrive.

When you are here, we will accompany you on viewing trips. We can also advise and help you with accommodation, hiring a car and visiting the local attractions.

We will help you with opening an Italian bank account and obtaining your Italian tax code (codice fiscale), which you will need before you can start the buying procedure.  We use a local bank, also used personally by all members of the Abruzzo Reality team. We know all the staff very well and they all enjoy welcoming our clients to the area.  We do not charge you for these services. 

All the non-Italian members of Abruzzo Reality have been through the buying process themselves, as foreigners in Abruzzo, and have subsequently helped many others do the same.  So we are well aware of the concerns felt when taking such a large step.

Once you have bought your house, you may feel a little bewildered at first, until you get used to the new culture, unfamiliar systems and meet your new neighbours and the local people (who will, by the way, welcome you with open arms and endless supplies of locally grown produce).  We won't abandon you at this important stage.  We will be there to help you integrate and get used to your new home and its surroundings.  We may even be one of your new neighbours but, if not, we will always be close by for you.

We will help you with all aspects of daily life here in Italy, which may seem complicated and strange at first.  Such as, payments of local taxes and utility bills required at the local post office, often accompanied by lengthy and unfamiliar forms. Even simple procedures, like arranging for your telephone line to be connected, can take some time, and can be difficult to arrange, especially if you are not here in Abruzzo. We can advise on all aspects of living here, even down to where to buy local wine and other produce.

For those of you who won't be living full-time in Abruzzo, we provide comprehensive property management services, with responsive communication by phone or email, a simple hourly charging structure, and regular written statements, we can be your vital link to your Italian property.

We have moved from the USA to Montefino in the Province of Teramo, Abruzzo, Italy. By shear luck we googled Abruzzo properties and found Abruzzo Reality and Tracey! She and her colleagues were the most accommodating team that we could have asked for. Tracey speaks both fluent Italian and English so there has been no concern for a misunderstanding in translation. We incurred some daunting trials while acquiring our Elective Visas and Tracey went above and beyond the call of duty to assist us. If you are in the market for a home in Abruzzo, Abruzzo Reality is a must!

I cannot rate Abruzzo Reality highly enough. We were very fussy buyers!! We had a long list of things that we wanted from a house and we were beginning to think we would not find what we were looking for. It can be quite disappointing seeing what looks like a lovely property on the internet and then travelling all the way to Italy to find its next door to a factory!!
Vincenzo and Tracey however, took on board our requirements and showed us only properties that fitted the criteria we asked for. They were professional and their local knowledge of the area was invaluable. It was also nice to see that the sellers thought highly of them too.
They found us the property we eventually bought and convinced us to look at it even though we thought it might not be for us from the photos. They were right.
They guided us through the buying process and helped us every step of the way, always prompt with responses to our queries. The help did not stop after we signed the papers, they helped with bills, finding us local suppliers and services and even now help us if we have a problem or need to know where to find something.
I would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of buying in this area, with Tracey speaking English and Vincenzo’s local knowledge they make a great team.

Abruzzo Reality, what a brilliant team! We found them on the internet when searching for a property to buy in Abruzzo. The site is very easy to navigate, with good information, photos and detail of locations. We requested details of some properties and Tracey responded immediately, asking what our requirements were. We were very impressed with Tracey's complete honesty as to whether the properties would be suitable for us or not. The viewings were arranged and we found our property. With Tracey's guidance and input, answering our numerous queries, the whole process was completed in 2 months and we are now living here permanently. It all went seamlessly.
The Abruzzo Reality team do not stop at completion but continue to provide support, assisting us in opening a bank account, getting residency and arranging transfer of all the utilities, to us. They are always there to provide advice and assistance. We feel very lucky to have found them and if you are looking to buy in Abruzzo, put Abruzzo Reality top of your list.

After deciding for ourselves that the region Abruzzo was for us the place in Italy to look for a vacation home, we came in contact with Tracey. Right from the start the contact was good and comfortable.  We never felt there was a main focus on the business side, or that we were being pushed in a direction we did not want to go.  Instead we always felt that it was up to us what kind of properties we wanted to view.  That Tracey had understood what our wishes were regarding the property and the location, became very clear when we were asked if we wanted to view a "mystery" property and fell for it right away.  It forfilled all the wishes we had for a property in Italy!

During the entire process, from start to end, we have always felt that Tracey was there to support us.  It was a very good feeling to know that a person with good knowledge of the Italian way of doing business was there to support us by doing the necessary paperwork or translation work.  Based on our own experience , we highly recommend working with Tracey Nicholas.

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.

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.

We were already looking a while for a suitable house for us in Abruzzo. Abruzzo Reality helped us very well on the search for this suitable house. We visited several houses. but when we saw our house, we knew immediately knew that this was the one. The house offers plenty of oportunities. Tracey helped us perfectly through the buying process.
A few months later we were the proud new owners! Tracey has also helped us with the paperwork concerning the purchase. Nothing was too much and we also found it important that the documents were translated in English. For a foreigner it’s not so easy , especially because ‘notary language’ is not the most understandable one.
Besides her professionalism, Tracey gave us a trust worthy feeling. She and Vincenzo are a good, reliable team. They made it a lot easier for us with their professional way of working and their knowledge.
Meanwhile, we are several months away and we are enjoying our life in Abruzzo. A splendid region that has so much to offer! Thanks!

Excellent experience with Abruzzo Reality.

Buying property in other countries can be stressful and frustrating. For us it was a wonderful and smooth process thanks to Tracey and Manolo at Abruzzo Reality. They were patient with us and helped us every step of the way.
They responded to our questions promptly and never left us hanging. Not only did they get us an amazing property for a great deal but they also helped us to find trustworthy and fair tradesman to help us after closing. We would highly recommend this company if you are looking to buy in Italy. They are the kind of people that we hope to keep a friendship with even after business is complete. Thank you to the entire amazing staff.

We bought our house via Abruzzo Reality a couple of years ago. We contacted them via internet and went to Abruzzo to have a look at several houses that were available at that moment. Tracey organised the trip to the different houses and yes...We fell in love with one particular house. From that moment on, Tracey took care of everything for us to be able to buy the house. Even now, when bills have to be paid, when meetings have to be organised and other problems have to be solved, she takes care of it. She took care of finding a gardener, someone to take care of the pool, etc...
In other words, she's taking care of everything when we aren't there and we know we can rely on her. Keep up the good work, Tracey! Thanks for helping us!

The process of buying or selling a home in Italy can be very complicated and confusing for non-Italian residents, especially if you don’t speak fluent Italian, cannot be there in person to attend the closing, or meet with a realtor on a regular basis. My husband and I are forever grateful to have had Tracey working on our behalf and making sure that every detail was taken care of. As a Realtor, Tracey is 100% committed to her clients, and we felt she represented us consistently with professionalism and backing. She seems to work round the clock, answering emailed questions from us (from the United States) even when we knew it was very late at night in Italy (not expected, but very much appreciated!). With her knowledge and contacts, she was able to successfully bridge all communication and process gaps, without which the process of selling our home in Italy most likely would have been a nightmare. Despite some challenges along the way (such as, obtaining a power of attorney in our absence), Tracey persevered and fought for us every step of the way. We couldn’t have gotten through this without her as our Realtor, and highly recommend trusting her with any home purchase or sale. Hopefully we will have the great fortune to request her services again someday! Grazie mille per tutto, Tracey!!

Everything went smoothly!!
We saw a lot of houses with a lot of agencies. Some of them were more friendly than others, but with you, from the beginning, it was just like talking to a friend, and we had never met before.
Every question, even a stupid one, you answered.
If we had a doubt, you gave us your trust by sending evidence.
Last year in April we met, to visit a few houses. The one we came for, was the one we fell in love with.
You arranged everything through email, we just had to sign and pay 😉
Even the appointment with the notary was planned according to our chosen date.
Even after the sale you are willing to help us and answer our questions.
Thank you Tracey!

When we fell in love with our little house in the Abruzzen, Italy, we were extremely lucky to have the help and support of Tracey.  She always responds quickly to all our emails and is tireless when it comes to answering all our questions. We certainly couldn’t have done it without her.

We would like to say a huge thank you for all of your help and support in helping us buy our dream home here in Italy; you walked us through every step of the way.

The service you and Abruzzo Reality provide is first class as well as your ongoing after sales service. It is hard to believe we’ve been living here for over four years now and not being fluent in Italian, it’s still great to know you are always there whenever we need your help and support. We know we can rely on you and you always have a friendly, professional approach, so we’ve always felt secure in dealing with someone who speaks the same language. That is a really important factor, especially when buying a property abroad. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone.

Once again a very special thank you, Tracey, we both know we couldn’t have done it without you!

We cannot speak highly enough of our experience when dealing with Tracey Nicholas of Abruzzo Reality.  She made the whole selling process so simple and straightforward, and this was dealing with two customers who didn’t speak a word of Italian!  She answered every email promptly, was honest and fair and we had total faith in her from the beginning, and our trust was rewarded.  The viewing of our property, to the completion with the notary, all took place in under a month, thanks to her organisation.  We were kept fully informed at every stage, from receiving initial deposits to advising when to book our flights.  What we expected to be a complicated and nerve wracking experience actually turned out to be very enjoyable, thanks to her.  We recommended her to friends of ours, and they had exactly the same experience as us, and even said she did more than was expected to help them after their sale was completed, assisting them with the bank and transfers.  We would be happy to act as referees for anyone thinking of buying or selling with Tracey, we are totally confident you would be as pleased as we were if you used her as your agent.

It was my first overseas experience when I bought my holiday home in Loreto. I was very worried on how the whole process will go, having no knowledge or experience on regulations abroad. However, it went very smooth without hassles and in no time. The whole credit goes to the professional handling and advise of the Abruzzo Reality team. I sincerely recommend Abruzzo Reality and I will not hesitate to approach them again for any similar future plans.

We are now the happy owners of a beautiful house in Abruzzo.

We came to Abruzzo for the first time, knowing that we love Italy and having talked to Tracey once, we soon realized that she understood our brief better than we perhaps did ourselves.

We not only enjoyed her professional service, both during the search and all the following admin work, but also the friendly manner in which it was delivered.

We would have no reservations in recommending Abruzzo Reality to anyone that would like to buy a property in Abruzzo.

"We cannot thank you enough for all the help you have given us in becoming Italian real estate owners! That lovely house is something one only dreams of!"

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.

After having our apartment up for sale for a couple of years with no result, we were recommended to contact Tracey by friends, as she had helped with their sale. We cannot thank and praise her enough as she instantly went into action to advertise and find us a buyer. The whole process was completed quickly and professionally and what we thought would be a complete headache went very smoothly. Tracey dealt with the whole process from viewings, booking the Notary and arranging to have all the utility bills transferred in to the new owners names. We would like to thank the whole team for their excellent service.

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.
