What is the catch?
The properties in this picturesque town are generally dilapidated, many abandoned generations ago and anyone ‘lucky’ enough to acquire one has just four years to make it livable.
Although the offer has already lured dozens of holiday home hunters from around the world a website for British investors, shelteroffshore.com, advises buyers to beware.
If a piece of property has been handed down from one generation to the next, “the path of ownership is not clear.” There may be outstanding taxes, or debts and loans.
“Sicily is not for everyone,” the website warns.
