According to CNN, Sambuca, an idyllic town in Sicily, Italy, is selling off dozens of old homes for the mere pittance of €1, just over $1 USD.
However, the town officials of Sambuca claim that their deal is better than the rest because if you want a house, you’ve got a house.
In addition, the new homeowners must pay a €5,000 (about $5,700 USD) security deposit, which is fully refundable once renovations are complete.
But Cacioppo says it’ll be worth it, since Sambuca is known as the “City of Splendor” and an “Earthly Paradise.” “We’re located inside a natural reserve, packed with history. Gorgeous beaches, woods and mountains surround us. It’s silent and peaceful, an idyllic retreat for a detox stay,”
