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.

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.

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!

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.

"We cannot sing the praises of Tracey sufficiently highly. She has taken all of the worry out of the house purchasing process in Italy. She has been trustworthy, thorough and reliable throughout. Tracey is a gentle, intuitive translator, active project manager and industrious agent. We have made significant savings by entrusting the whole process to Tracey. Without having the confidence to make this leap of faith we could never have operated so effectively, or economically from so great a distance.

The inevitable unfamiliarity with the Italian property house buying market proved potentially daunting. Informed advice is crucial and is provided in abundance."

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!!

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!

We first fell in love with Abruzzo when visiting friends in the summer of 2017. On return from our visit we began searching for a property. We spent many hours trawling through properties and estate agents on the internet!  Abruzzo Reality came highly recommended by some close personal friends.
In April 2018 we were back in Abruzzo looking at properties with Tracey and Vincenzo. They were both very friendly and knowledgeable.
Having looked at a number of properties in Loreto Aprutino, Collecorvino and Penne, we found a perfect little house in Penne. Vincenzo and Tracey offered impartial advice which was pivotal in helping us chose our property in Penne. This included their assessment of the property value and the potential for holiday letting. Tracey and Vincenzo organised all aspects of the legal process including Codice Fiscale and the official transaction with the notary, which was very quick!
Throughout the whole process from beginning to end Tracey was able to offer advice and guidance. She dealt with all our queries no matter how trivial.
We are continuing to rely on Tracey when we require property management services.
Buying a house can be a stressful experience, even more so in a foreign country, but we can say without reservation that the whole process from beginning to end has been stress free.
Tracey, Vincenzo and Manolo are all very approachable and helpful we are very grateful for their assistance in making our dream of owning a house in Abruzzo a reality.

We do not know where we would be if it weren't for the assistance provided by Tracey. She made every step of the buying process effortless as well as assistance above and beyond the actual purchase. Everything was explained in detail and their knowledge of the area, details and contacts were invaluable. She is an asset to the continued management of our property and have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone contemplating buying or selling property in Abruzzo.

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.

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.

To move, buy a house and live in another country with all its bureaucracy, customs and language barriers is quite a daunting, if not exciting, prospect at the best of times. To do so, when you are doing it alone can be frightening to say the least.

Tracey made it more of an exciting adventure, without the down side, in a friendly and trustworthy manner. I am extremely grateful to her and her colleagues, and they are still here, helping to smooth out the edges long after I purchased the house of my dreams. I consider them as friends.

Tracey also found me a companion, a beautiful and loving dog who is always by my side :) Thanks for all Tracey.

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.

Tracey has always been very helpful, supportive and trustworthy. She helped us with liaising the utility companies when we had difficulties communicating with them and ensured the bills were paid. When we decided to sell the property.  Tracey dealt with the whole process during the difficult time of the pandemic while keeping us updated throughout. As we were unable to travel to sign the contract, Tracey acted on our behalf as power of attorney to enable the sale to complete. We cannot recommend her highly enough.

While living in California, I happened to read an article on unspoiled areas in Europe. A real estate search in the Abruzzo region of Italy produced a few websites. I reviewed those sites and discovered that Abruzzo Reality provided the most comprehensive, yet balanced information on the area. The property search pages were so efficient that I easily found a couple of properties that were interesting, so I reached out to Abruzzo Reality for more detailed information, whilst clarifying that my interest was merely superficial at this point, since my search had just begun. Tracey Nicholas responded almost immediately to my queries, and informed me that it was fine to be inquisitive without any need to feel pressured to do anything. Tracey's response was pleasant to hear, given I wanted more information, but was months away from any decisions. Although very aware of real estate purchasing in the US, I was a novice in Italian real estate, which led to a myriad of questions for Tracey. Another pleasant discovery, Tracey methodically answered my questions, without a hint of presumptiveness or pressure of any sort. For the next few days, I looked around the internet for more information about the region, real estate, laws, etc., but kept returning to Abruzzo Reality website and Tracey for exacting and accurate information. Excellent!
As a buyer of real estate, I tend to do my research and proceed with great caution always testing the situation from a number of angles. I found a property that met a number of my personal attributes, so a great deal of additional information was gathered to meet my requests, including the geometra on the property, current photographs, videos, and pricing. My approach was pretty thorough and not necessarily easy for Abruzzo Reality, however all of my research requests were met with a spirit of pure openness.
As I tinkered with an offer, I considered the value of the property and my distance from Italy. In summary, I made an offer without visiting Italy. The offer was accepted, and the deal was consummated. As a testament to “trust” and Tracey, I made the purchase from California following the Italian real estate process in three payments of thousands of euros each, while not yet actually seeing the property. I made my initial trip to Abruzzo for the closing of the deal. To my pleasant surprise, the property, the deal, Abruzzo Reality, and Tracey were all as they previously appeared... accurate, authentic and honest.
My real estate experience in the US sometimes involved minor risks, but nothing like the risk of this untested situation in Italy. The key to my risk taking was Tracey and the support of the Abruzzo Reality team. Without hesitation and from the perspective of purchasing numerous properties in the United States, Tracey Nicholas and Abruzzo Reality provided the finest and most honest experience of my life.

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.

From the moment we began working with Tracey, we knew we had found someone extraordinary that would make our house-buying experience as smooth as it possibly could be, considering we were interested in buying a house on a different continent, in a country where we didn’t speak the language. Her warm personality and amazing work ethic, when combined with her knowledge of the Abruzzo region, make her simply the perfect realtor to work with when buying a home there. We had countless questions for her throughout the process, for which she provided answers via e-mail or telephone almost immediately, regardless of time zone differences. There were also many challenges with the bank that provided our home loan that Tracey resolved through perseverance and 100% dedication to our best interests. When we met her in person, our initial impression was solidly reinforced; we instantly felt at ease with her, as if she was part of our new family abroad. We honestly don’t know if we could have succeeded in buying our dream home in Italy without her, and continue to depend on her and trust her fully with other business opportunities to this day. We couldn’t be more pleased with her work. We also cannot say GRAZIE MILLE enough to our dear friend Tracey Nicholas for making all of it possible, and for making it a fantastic experience!!

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.

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!

Tracey of 'Abruzzoreality' is quite simply a miracle worker! Let us explain.

Having had a holiday home out in the countryside near Penne for ten years, we decided that it was now time for us to 'downshift' and move to a smaller, more easily managed house in town. Tracey had superbly managed the country house for us, arranging ongoing maintenance for the house and gardens, as well as successfully organising holiday lets for the weeks when we were not 'in residence'. Tracey is a highly respected professional; her knowledge and understanding of the vagaries of the property market in Abruzzo is second to none. Knowing her to be honest; always acting with integrity and with our best interests at heart, we were keen to involve her in our plans to relocate in Abruzzo, from the outset.

Tracey designed the advertisement for the sale of our property; posted it on her Abruzzoreality website and was successful in attracting a number of potential buyers. A sale and date for the exchange of contracts was agreed within weeks, meaning we had to quickly find a town house which met our needs. Tracey arranged for us to look at suitable properties in our preferred towns of Penne and Loreto Aprutino. Tracey chose well and we fell in love with a beautiful compact house in the 'Centro Storico' in Loreto. We made an offer which was accepted and through Tracey's hard work, were able to complete the purchase to coincide with the sale of our country property. Tracey had managed to successfully ensure our move was stress-free, seamless and relatively quick to conclude.

We will of course continue to use Tracey's management services for our new holiday home in Loreto and as always, will never hesitate to recommend 'Abruzzoreality' to anyone and everyone! We have been very lucky in getting to know Tracey, who for a whole variety of reasons, has made our time in Abruzzo trouble free and hugely enjoyable. Long may she continue to do so!

I would like to express my sincere thanks to you, for being able, in a very short time, to sell my country villa, whilst showing incredible professionalism and competence. It was a very positive experience after three years of disappointments, with other local, national and even international companies. Thanks again.
