Perhaps you're down to buy a 13th-century Italian village, but you had really hoped to spend more than the $789K ask of the one that's on the market in Valle Piola, Abruzzo. Good news for thee and thy spend-happy wallet! An Umbrian village—consisting of a palazzo, church with bell tower, mill, winery, houses, and terraces—is now on the market with a heftier ask of $5.266M. Located 10 miles from the larger town of Todi and 1,800 feet above sea level, this place also comes with some of the best brokerbabble around, including the requisite "rolling hills with meadows and woods" mention: "This village is filled with ancient and noble history... The fertile land around it has 500 plus olive and chestnut trees." While there's potable drinking water, electricity, phone wires, and "the possibility of broadband," something tells us that whoever buys this place will just want to pull an anti-Pierre Cardin and just peace out for a while.
