Self-catering holiday house situated in a peaceful location called Marina di Mancaversa, located 7 km South of Gallipoli-Santa Maria di Leuca coast road is for rent. Marina di Mancaversa is a very quiet place, with its own beaches. A real sea resort off the beaten truck ! A short drive away is the famous beach of Lido Pizzo and Punta della Suina, in the nature reserve of Parco di Sant' Andrea. Gallipoli (8 km far from the property), is a very well-known and lively tourist town and a delightful fishing town, with its old historic centre, stretching on an Island that is connected with the modern part of the city by a bridge. The house lies in a very strategic position, being only 40 km far from the famous Lecce, capital of the "Salento" and renowned for its marvellous Baroque style, only 30 km far from both the famous cities of Otranto and Santa Mara di Leuca, while the nearest airport Brindisi Casale is about 90 km far. The inside, of 100 square meters, consists of three main bedrooms, one main bedroom with king sized bed, the second bedroom with bunk beds ,and the third bedroom with twin beds; a bright and cosy living-dining room, provided with a divan-bed for two people; a spacious fully fitted eat-in kitchen with two fridges, one cooker, one oven,one sink, a washing maschine , and an extendable dining room table; a large and comfortable bathroom with W.C, bidet, wash-basin, bathtub and shower. Air-conditioning inside. The property is surrounded by a garden of 250 square meters, with a large patio-veranda in the front, equipped with a big table and plenty of chairs to eat outside and deckchairs, ideal for resting, reading or lying in the sun. The rear garden has enough space for resting in the shade, eating outside, and it is provided with a barbecue and an outside shower. The house has its own garage and a few parking spaces outside, and it is located in a full served area, with bars, newsagents, bus stop, supermarkets, bakeries, chemist's shops and the Marina's parish Church within walking distance. The wonderful sea is only five or ten minutes walking distance from the house, the water is always clean and crystal clear. The coast is rocky, but with many small access for easy reach also for children. The sandy beaches are short away, north or South, both with very easy access. The house has a total sleeping capacities of 8 people and it is available for rental in the months of June, July, August and September. Long-term rentals and both weekly rentals are available.

We are looking for a long term rental for a year or more from late summer 2015, whilst we teach our two teenage children the culture and art of Italy. We need a detached rural property with 4+bedrooms, garden, (a pool would be great) Anywhere considered in Umbria, Tuscany or Marche. We are ideally looking for an unfurnished place, but could take a furnished place if 'perfect' for us. We are open to any opportunities and would consider renting a Bed and Breakfast or Gite business, or even house sitting. We are open to helping to redecorate an empty house whilst we stayed if such a possibility came to us. Any property with an annex or studio attached would also be ideal. If you know of anything that could fit the bill I'd love to hear about it. Many thanks

OK, I"m now looking into Siracusa. Planning to buy an apartment and live in it 2-6 months each year (of course after initially renting). Does anyone have any information?
lindanoto replied most recently with:
we have holiday rentals thru Airbn, The only long term rentals we have are not near the city. The city of Siracusa itself (Siracusa alta is the slightly northern part) is mostly hi.rises and confusion, not at all charming. If you are use to city dwelling it won't bother you .I would go mad living there. Ortigia or the area before going over the bridge( Via Malta, coso Umberto) is much prettier and easier to travel from. There are many rentals on but the best thing is to be here and search in person. Some of the best places are just a sign in the doorway.

I am looking at Siracusa city, either Ortigia or near there, just north of the island. What kind of rentals do you have, long term or short?

We have students ready to start an Italian conversation course on January 19th via Webex (video conference). We need a native speaker who would like to learn to teach Italian using our unique method. We will train you in our method, co-teach the first 10-week class with you, observe you teaching a 2nd 10-week course, and certify you in our method. Please reply here today if you are interested or know someone who would be interested!

Hello there! My name is Marco Conserva, I am 27 years old and currently involved in teaching english to speakers of other languages, which so far I've done mostly freelance and/or in private structures. I'm fluent in English, especially American English, and I'm looking to expand my skills to teaching Italian to foreigners. I'm currently based in (Puglia) Southern Italy and I can't really move from here, that is unless a great career opportunity (topping up the ones I have here) comes along. I wish to get more info on this, i.e. where I would be based, where the training will occur, what type of contract I would have, etc. Thank you in advance. Sincerely, Marco Conserva.

I am a dual US-Italian citizen, and I reside in the US. I have inherited a small house in Italy and am considering renting it out. As I understand it, I should pay taxes on this income in either Italy or the US. What's the correct way to do this? I would appreciate hearing from people who are in a similar situation and can share their experiences. Thanks.

The US tax laws have changed very recently. You may not owe, but I'm pretty sure you need to file. After living abroad for 37 years, just this year my foreign bank was forced to report my bank history for the last 6 years to the US IRS. Find professional help who has experience in your specific situation (Italy/US).

the italian government is cracking down on tax cheats. You better be careful. You are only required to pay tax in one location. With real-estate it may be required that you pay in the location of the property and the US would have nothing to do with it. I think you would be much better off consulting a tax specialist in italy instead of asking people on this site.
