Running a business in Italy / Re: Opening up a new airbnb, help needed
« Last post by profsid on Yesterday at 01:31:06 PM »
Thanks for your help that would be great, i don't want to do a b&b but just rent out our flat so if it involved sending photos of id cards/passports to the  local authorities  that would  be easy to do but if i need the ASL to inspect  etc it would be a pain.so any info would be appreciated.

Running a business in Italy / Re: Opening up a new airbnb, help needed

I used to rent out my property for holidays. Due to my UK job I had to ensure everything was 110% above board and official. The property managers I used at the time sorted everything out, including being officially registered here in Abruzzo that included registering guests with the relevant authorities etc., etc..

Not a very costly exercise, but certainly worth the peace of mind.

I'll mention this thread to the guys I used at the time and see if they want to add anything to it.

Good luck

I just had a little google on AirB&b in italy and found this :-

https://community.withairbnb.com/t5/Hosting/The-New-Airbnb-Law-in-Italy/td-p/412626

It?s from 2017 but looks a bit complicated (what isn?t ? ) do you have a commercialisata? Or a contract with Air b&b?

Good Luck

Hi, we're just about ready to open our airbnb up but need to get our head round the requirements neede for the Abruzzo authorities and also i believe the guests need to sign a contract when they stay.We only want to rent it out occasionally,  so less than 30 days ,so a short term stay.
If anyone has already gone through the process with airbnb or with another company any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks  :)S

Its been so bad in some parts that the Sindaco met last night to decide whether to declare it an emergency. I think if there is sufficient damage they can access central funds.

I wonder about all the beachfront businesses, if their umbrellas and sun beds have been ruined. It would be enough to put some out of business so I hope there?s some government help, although it probably won?t be for years yet!

Thank goodness no one was killed by those hail stones, they?re lethal!!

I have just been into the village & was chatting about yesterday's weather. The shopkeeper was telling me that Montesilvano did indeed have some extreme rain but south Pescara & Francavilla were hit with a serious hailstorm, with hailstones the size of oranges. She has a friend in Francavilla who lives on the top floor of an apartment block & the roof was punctured by some of the hailstones & she said that people's veg crops were wiped out. Serious indeed.  ???

We drove into Pescara late morning & it was amazing. We set off with the temperature at 28C. The clouds got darker & darker then the rain arrived. Wow, what rain. Some of the very heaviest I've ever seen. I was driving down that long straight road into Montesilvano at 22mph (35kph) & that was IT; I couldn't go any faster as I simply couldn't see where I was going, despite having put the windscreen wipers on overtime duty. The temperature dropped by 10C within about 20 minutes, so you can probably imagine how much water it took to achieve that.  ??? The drive back was an experience too as all the roads were flooded & the car created so much spray at times that I felt like I was in a speed boat.  ;D

Back in Civitella it looked like there hadn't been much rain; just a steady drizzle really. I shudder to think how full the rivers in Pescara will be in the next day or two after all that rain arrives....
