A beautiful Italian town is selling homes for just €1, and we're already packing

Well, this is interesting.

Are you fed up of Ireland, and paying extortionate amounts of rent, because you can't afford to buy a home?

Well, would you consider moving to the Italian countryside?

Because, there's a delightful little town currently selling homes for €1...

Yep, less than the cost of a fucking Dairymilk.

Bisaccia, a picturesque destination in Italy's southern Campania region, is putting 90 dilapidated buildings on the market for one euro.

"We face a very particular situation here," the town's deputy mayor, Francesco Tartaglia, said to CNN Travel. 

"The abandoned area spreads throughout the most ancient part of the village. Forsaken houses are clustered together, one next to the other along the same roads. Some even share a common entrance."

"That's why we welcome families, groups of friends, relatives, people who know each other or investors to join forces. We encourage them to buy more than just one house to actually have an impact and breathe new life."

For a euro mate, I'll buy all 90 houses.

The catch? (There's always a catch!)

If you buy one of these homes, you have to commit to doing it up and living in it - so no, it can't be a holiday home that you visit a few times a year.

Which is a real shame to be honest.

"Bisaccia is dubbed the 'genteel town' because, despite the hardship, its people have always been respectable, welcoming, hard-working and resilient," says Tartaglia.

"Newcomers here are pampered and taken care of. We want this place to shine again."
