Ollolai, a destination in the mountain region of Barbagia on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia, is selling hundreds of abandoned homes for just €1 ($1.2).
The 200 stone-built dwellings up for grabs are in poor condition and buyers must commit to a refurbishment within three years — which will likely cost about $25,000.
Behind the sell is a plan to rejuvenate a community at risk of becoming a ghost town.
Formerly Barbagia’s capital, Ollolai remains the most untouched and authentic patch of Sardinia. Once buzzing, its maze of alleys and mural-covered piazzas are now silent, as younger residents have been lured away to bigger cities.
