Looking For A Retirement Home? Italian Town Wants YOU! PDF Print E-mail

According to a CNN report, the charming little town of Candela, inland 50 miles  from Naples, has seen its population dwindle from 8,000 to 2,700 in the past decade. The mayor is now offering to pay newcomers as much as $2,350 to settle in Candela.

In addition to that incentive, because of the mass exodus by former residents, many vacant homes are available for low, low sale and rental prices. You’ll never find such cheap housing in grossly overpriced senior havens like Miami, Los Angeles or San Diego. Of course, as with all charming Italian towns, Candela has charming scenery, great restaurants, frequent festivals and friendly neighbors. They’ll welcome senior American travelers with lots of retirement money to spend.
