I wonder if asking around in bars in villages and leaving your contact details would help in your quest?

Thank you, we are looking at IKEA and will definitely get some things there but we thought a house clearance sale would make economic sense. We are moving to Elice, about 30 mins from Pescara. I will check out your suggestions.  :)

Welcome to the forum. Which region are you moving to? Abruzzo is a big place!

You could have a look at mercatone usato OK, in Teramo or mercatino usato, several in Pescara.

Or, there?s always IKEA 😉

Hello, We are a couple in the process of buying a house in Abruzzo which we need to furnish. Is there somewhere we can go to where complete house clearances are advertised? We need everything from bed frames (we will obviously want new mattresses) to sofas and saucepans. It would seem to make sense to buy a job lot. Does anyone know a site?

Hello, I saw your post now. Are you still searching? I rent a flat which offers all you want. Area is between Atri and Penne, very much space, near to the center of the village but not in the village and a fantastic view to the Gran Sasso.

Hi Berris
Mine is a 3 bedroom end of terrace with a cantina underneath. It was sold as habitable!, connected to all the services and the land was a largish garden about 7 x 50m not including drive or terraces
Land can be a bit of an issue as when it comes up for sale neighbors can have first refusal, though gardens are a different issue.
My advice is take your time and let the web take the strain and if possible fall for a house that is structurally sound and complete as do it ups cost a lot more than paint it ups! Also learn to roll with rustic charm as shabby chic is cheap.
Best of luck.
V.

Thanks, GeordieBorn! I was there (or there abouts) just before Christmas. Amazing 1930s windows and doors on the houses in Jesmond! Fish on the beach from Rileys. It was a real treat. Made me wonder why I'd taken so long to visit.
