“I had the pleasure of meeting Paola and Lino of Majellacase in Abruzzo.
I have had contact with many real estate agents in Italy. Usually I make contact from Australia so it is a little daunting to say the least, but what I found with Paola was that she would always return emails timely, would always be eager to get any information you needed, and basically, made it a pleasure to look for property on the other side of the planet. Trust was paramount to me, and after many emails, a trip, and much searching we finally made the purchase that we have been looking for, for over twenty years. I can highly recommend Paola and Lino, for their enthusiasm, honesty, and willingness to work with foreigners that can sometimes to difficult to deal with.

“I would recommend this estate agency.
The contact with the real estate agent went perfectly.
Questions are answered quickly. We found a perfect house with this real estate agent, they are honest and helpful in everything.

“Enticed by one HGTV episode aired in the U.S., my husband and I decided to inquire about a detached house in the historic town of Abbateggio, Italy. We contacted two listing real estate agencies; only one answered in record time, the Majellacasa, and so out incredible Italian adventure started. The intricate but exciting process involved the initial meet and greet, tour of town and property, financial matters and legal issues involving a notary, the European version of a lawyer. The property of our interest dates back to 1900 and was in need of serious repair. Paula, the real estate agent, and Lino, the engineer and architect in charge with the project helped us every step of the way at many levels. Refurbishing a property thousands of miles away by plane requires honest effort from all parties involved. Paula and Lino have been an incredible team dedicated to their clients. They have gone beyond their job description to turn our renovation into reality. The work involved so much more than just reconfiguring problem areas. Their recommendations reflected their refined artistic vision as well as love and respect for local history that was to continue in the 21st century. Their level of professionalism defies expectations by echoing an era when craftsmen took their time to do things right.The ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures stand proof that the renovation was nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Lino and Paola for all your help and for waving your magic wand in the quaint town of Abbateggio.

“I have been dealing with Majellacase Immobiliare for over 18 months now, mostly from afar in Australia initially. I had a number of properties I was interested in looking at when we were to fly over in February 2019. My husband and I had decided to purchase a property in Abruzzo to spend time in, a couple of times a year and eventually retire to.
Pasqualino, my Italian husband, had left me to de the hunting from Australia, he has many relatives in Italy and we loved the lifestyle.
Paola, answered every email and replied to all my queries regarding properties, from the first email. Paola helped me arrange a short list of properties in the area we were looking at in Abruzzo.
We had arranged a time to meet to view properties before we arrived in Rome and were pleasantly surprised when she arrived with a huge smile, information and keys to all the properties we wanted to view.
We found a place, after viewing many, in Caramanico Terme. Paola assisted us with the purchase of the property and ongoing maintenance of the property when we returned to Australia.
We also required some renovations to be done before we returned later that year. These were also organised through Majellacase Immobiliare, progress reports were sent regularly and we were thrilled when we arrived back in September 2019, to view the work.
We have since purchased another small property through Paola and can’t wait to return. We couldn’t be happier .
“Buying a house always involves some degree of concern.
Even more so with a house at the other end of Europe.
Now looking back, we are amazed how smooth it all went.
Every step in the process worked out Exactly as laid out by Paola.
We are now the proud owners of a newly renovated house on the slope of Majella. All thanks to the people of Majella Casa who makes our dream true.
We look forward to our next visit.

“Whilst looking for a house in Abruzzo we met many estate agents. We had very specific requirements and unfortunately many of them showed us what was on their books, rather that what would actually suit us.
From the beginning, Paola really listened to us. She has a wealth of beautiful properties available but only took us to see ones with potential and within budget. We found our dream house quickly once we met her!
Unlike in the UK, the estate agency doesn’t stop once they find you the house, part of the service (or certainly in the case of Majellacase) is guiding you through the purchase process. This is where Paola and her colleagues were invaluable:
They helped us look at the land registry to buy surrounding land and organise it into one purchase to make it tax efficient.
The seller needed a power of attorney which came from another country. When it came back it had mistakes in it. Paola spotted this and made them re-do it, saving us who knows what trouble if it had gone through whilst invalid.
We didn’t need a lawyer, we were able to talk through all of the documents in their office with the help of a translator and make any necessary changes.
As well as all of this, the service they provide has been personal, responsive and always very warm. We felt complete confidence in buying our house with Majellacase and would do it all again in a heartbeat! We cannot recommend them enough!

“We purchased our holiday home from Majella Case and couldn’t be more delighted with the service we received.
Paola dealt with the sale which went very smoothly, we were kept informed every step of the way and with wonderful interpreters, the language barrier was never an issue.
We went on to have a full renovation of our home and dealt with Lino.
The transformation was absolutely stunning, nothing was too much trouble and both Paola and Lino could see our vision and helped us create it.
Both Paola and Lino have become lifelong friends and we would recommend them wholeheartedly for anybody thinking of purchasing a property in this beautiful part of the world.

“I live in the US and had dreamed about owning a property in Italy. I began my research online and was connected to Majellacase. Paola and Lino made the purchase seamless and helped me complete the purchase remotely. Since I have bought my dream home they have become my property manager and have been outstanding in maintenance and renovating my home. I can’t express enough gratitude for their services and attention to detail. They have been wonderful in making my dream a reality.
“It was always a dream for us to buy a house in Italy. In the spring of 2018, we arrived by chance to Majella park and fell in love with this area.
We were very lucky to come across a business card of Majellacase and contacted them.
During our first meeting, after we explained what we were looking for, the lovely people of Majellacase immediately understood what we wanted and showed us a number of suitable properties. After a very short time we were in the process of buying a beautiful house and had their support and caring all along the process.
The team of Majellacase is very professional, trustworthy and kind.
So if you are looking for the house of you dreams in Abruzzo, do it only with the lovely people of Majellacase.

“A few years ago, I visited the area on vacation and was quite enamored with Abruzzo with its' hillside towns, the national parks, the nearby location to the sea, the friendly people and the great cuisine. Luckily, I happened to meet another foreigner that had bought a property in Abbateggio and she recommended Majellacase Immobiliare, specifically Paola and her team. Paola was always very patient and helpful. She showed me many properties on many occasions and always answered my questions thoroughly. Closing was simple and the process was as trustworthy as if I had been in my country. I highly recommend Paola and her team for your Abruzzo property purchase.
“Paola and her colleagues were a remarkable support to our purchase in Italy. As an overseas buyer they could not have been more accommodating and responsive. I can absolutely recommend these guys. Thank you for your support.

“In December 2017, we sent some emails to real estate agencies in Abruzzo, among which Majellacase Immobiliare.
They have always answered promptly to the several questions and doubts we had, and when we finally went to Abruzzo, Paola and Lino have welcomed and accompanied us to see several solutions.
When we found the right home for us, they have followed us step by step, from the request of the Italian fiscal code to the translation of the notarial deed in English, besides the change of header of the bills.
Moreover, we have the assurance that when we are not there, there is someone who can go and check our house.
In short, they have been beneficial from the first day we met. Therefore we feel like we can suggest to you Majellacase.

“After narrowing our property search to Abruzzo, we made a trip last year specifically to find our perfect home. Paola was the only realtor who responded to my inquiries prior to arrival, and also had the listing that I was sure was “the one.”
When the scheduled visit showed us that it wasn’t right after all, she and Lino took the time (over a wonderful Sunday lunch) to understand what we really wanted. Without any pushiness or bait and switch, she found us one that met every single wish. We made an offer the same day. Since then, she has been exceptionally kind, responsive and honest as we worked through the purchase process.
Every step was explained and supported, every question was answered directly and fully. Everything went smoothly, even handling the close process remotely via a limited power of attorney. We saw many Majellacase signs on local homes, so I believe they must be as trustworthy for locals selling as for us stranieri buying. In my opinion, this is because they build strong relationships and follow through with all their customers. She and Lino are and will remain trusted resources, and I hope friends, once we can finally call Abruzzo our home.
I recommend Majellacase to anyone looking for a home in Abruzzo.
“We highly recommend Paula at Majellacase to help you find your dream Italian home.
Paula and her husband were extremely helpful in helping us find ours! Not only did she help us find a house that fit our specifications and budget, she also was very knowledgeable of the area and it’s history. Paula and her team are very personable, friendly and easy to work with. We were guided through the purchase every step of the way, which can be very complicated when you do not know the intricacies of purchasing property in Italy.
We are so happy to be new home owners in Abruzzo!

“Thanks to the excellent and professional company of Majellacase, after a long search I found a beautiful house with the best view in the world, where I am living now, enjoying the atmosphere and weather, finding out what "real hospitality of Abruzzo" is, having a delicious food, and also write scripts and take beautiful photos.
“I reached out to the Real Estate Agency Majellacase for the sale of a property in San Valentino (PE) and I have found competence, professionality and complete availability.
Thank you again Paola and Lino for the job done.
“Paola and Eleonora went above and beyond what we could have expected when purchasing a home abroad.
This could have been a daunting experience but Paola made it exciting and stress free.
We have already recommended Paola to 2 of our friends who will hopefully join us on this new adventure.
Thank you Paola!!!

“Paola and Lino of Majellacase have followed us in the purchase of our home in Roccacaramanico with professionalism, availability, cordiality and friendliness. Their precious support has started already from the phase of the search of the property right for our needs. Lino is a technician with great experience, extremely available to give advice and to answer our questions, always with objectivity and attention to our needs. The sale has been long and at times complicated but the communication with the agency has never been interrupted. Paola has kept us constantly updated and has taken care of answering our questions and requests, always in a very short time. We are very satisfied with their service and happy to have met them.

“We bought a house with help of Majellacase Immobiliare in November of 2020. Paola, Lino and the whole team have been with us every step of the way - helping us to find the ideal place from a very broad selection, sorting out all the formal arrangements and helping us with the renovations. It has been a pleasure as the whole team are extremely professional, happy to help with all issues small and big and always with a smile and patience for out endless demands! Thank you Paola and Lino! We hope you continue the great work and introduce more people like us to this stunning region. Thank you also to Eleonora the translator who has been a lifesaver for us (answering our calls at all times), to Paolo the handyman who has been helping us and to the electrician (unfortunately we do not remember the name) for the excellent quality of work. Grazie!

“Paola Savini is a very competent and reliable broker. The buying process went surprisingly smoothly and the communication throughout the process has been very good. We have always received quick and correct answers to our questions. Paola's translator has also made communication in English very easy. We can really recommend Paola and her team. Five stars out of five possible.

“I am incredibly grateful for all the help I received from Paola. I bought an apartment in Caramanico Terme. Paola is very responsible, helpful and answered all my questions. I can warmly recommend Paola and her company.

“Where do I begin to write a review about Paola and the team at Majellacase. I'm not one for writing reviews but felt the desire to write one in this instance. To say that Paola went above and beyond the duties of a real estate agent would be the understatement of the Century. During Covid I encountered endless problems trying to purchase a home in my father's hometown all the way from Melbourne, Australia. Not knowing the landscape in Italy, I was worried about administrative problems and having the rug pulled from under me. Paola acted professionally but soon became like a friend and held my hand through the whole process. She attended appointments for me and acted between the local councils and Italian consulate for me to obtain all the required documentation throughout the long 9-month process. Today I am the proud owner of a great little home and will be taking advantage of the Italian renovation grant scheme which Paola is also helping me to achieve. I'll be building an outdoor pizza oven, can't wait to have you over for some pizza and wine Paola, thank you so much.
P.S - To the reader, I'm happy for Paola to give you my WhatsApp number if you require any further information or would like a personal reference.

“We were buying a house in very particular and difficult times: during the lockdown in all of Europe for Coronavirus reasons. Therefore we had to often contact each other through the internet and telephone. Already from the start we have felt trust in Mrs Paola Savini, owner of MajellaCase because she would answer professionally, clearly and with a lot of patience to dozens of our questions. So we have chosen the ideal house for us in Caramanico Terme.
After the arrival in Italy Mrs Paola was waiting for us with the owner. The house had impressed us, everything corresponded with the description and photos. A few days later we made the notarial deed. All perfectly organized. Mrs Paola has also helped us with registying in our name means such as water, gas and electricity. She's very helpful and professional. Thank you Paola.
