Looking For A Retirement Home? Italian Town Wants YOU!

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.

With the coronavirus and the other stressful happenings around the world, senior travelers can use some friendly help. So, if you’re lucky while waiting for your flight, you may find a furry friend to help you pass the stressful minutes or more.

Some 70 U.S. airports now offer programs featuring certified therapy animals and their owners who regularly help de-stress travelers. The performers are usually dogs, but there are others.

Also, LiLou the pig is an official member of San Francisco’s International Airport’s Wag Brigade. And miniature therapy horses from Seven Oaks Farm are occasional visitors at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG).
