Investing and living in the region of Salento
Salento is imposing itself as the ideal destination for real estate investments.
“The real estate market of Salento offers great investment opportunities, both in the hinterland and on the coast” – explains Antonio Magurano, the person responsible for Studio Magurano-Meridionale Fondiaria Maglie Agency (real estate and credit brokerage agency) – “Thanks to its geographical position and its historical/cultural characteristics, Salento offers a wide range of real estate solutions: residential properties, tourist dwellings (houses in the countryside or by the sea), ancient buildings with cross vaults or barrel vaults, stone buildings (pajare), manor houses and old cottages (often renovated and transformed into residences and/or accommodation facilities).
