The advantage to stay in a village is to be able to socialize with Italian neighbours, to walk to the cafe and buy a newspaper and a cup of coffee in the morning and having all amenities within reach daytime and nighttime. The townhouses often come with a garden and roof terrace. and its fascination to open the simple door from the street - and inside almost like a little palace with a garden!
