Are there really homes for free in Sicily?
It's true: there are around 12 homes being offered for free in Cammarata, Sicily. This small mountain town is close to historical sites, hiking trails, beautiful lakes and is just 60 km from Palermo. While there are requirements to renovate the properties within three years, the new owners can choose what to do with the building including using it as a family home, guest accommodation, a shop or restaurant.
It’s one opportunity to secure Sicilian real estate.

At the moment there are around 12 properties suitable for the scheme, but it is likely that more will be added in due course. As the town becomes reignited, this could spur a regeneration which makes a real estate investment here worthwhile in the long-term.
