Hello from Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire
« on: March 10, 2016, 12:55:06 AM »
Just thought we had better introduce ourselves before the barrage of questions! We are Clive & Denise, and live over in Hebden Bridge at the moment. We hope to be moving over to Italy soon. We have seen a property in Scerni that we like, and which we plan to make an offer for. Does anyone live near the area? Thanks

Hi,

We have a house nearby but are mainly spend holiday time out there but ma from Yorkshire originally. There seem to be more and more around Scerni/Atessa region which is nice and good for the local businesses. This forum is good for helping you get started. All the best & keep us posted on your move.

Thanks for your posts. We are back over on the 7th of April, and have decided to fly to Rome this time, hire a car from there and drive across. We saw lots and lots of different types of houses the last time we came in January. We stayed in Montesilvano, and looked from Le Marche to Busso, near Campobasso, but both fell in love with Vasto  :D

Welcome to the forum, some good stuff on here, you should find it useful. If you find yourself in the Chieti (Rapino) region, give us a shout for a coffee. My Mum's family are from Todmorden...

Hi Andy.  We bought a house near Scerni and will move out there shortly. I know Bacup as I have family who live in Whitwoth and Shawforth. Small world. Where abouts  in Abruzzo are you? Always nice to know where people are. As you can imagine its raining here which is something I will sorely miss, Lol.  Clive ( with wife Denise who is from Littleboro)

My wife and I, a couple of Yanks, have purchased a house not to far up the road in Casalanguida. We will be arriving in December. Look forward to meeting up with you sometime.

Look forward to it. We'll be living in a tiny caravan for a while so won't be doing much entertaining but always a bar or the beach.
