My son Paul has just come in to see me with his tablet. He has an app on it called Mail Online.
On that app, there is a notice of homes for sale in Sardinia for 90 pence. Deadline for applications is 7 February. There are also other locations in Italy where houses are going for a song such as Montieri in Tuscany, Patricia in Lazio and Lecce de Marsi in Abruzzo. Anybody interested? Download the app (whatever that is) and take a look. It's all in English.
