It started with this article, which described an initiative to sell houses in the Sardinian town of Ollolai for 1 Euro:

…which led me to this website, with information in Italian about the sale:

…which led me to realize that a. between my advanced French and rudimentary Spanish, I can decipher quite a bit of Italian, and that b. there are similar initiatives for other Italian towns, including one in Tuscany:

…which led me to realize that my destiny is to buy a 1 Euro house in breathtakingly stunning Montieri, spend $25,000 renovating it, and let the rest of my life fall into place around this one pivotal act.

…which led me to second-guess my ability to learn Italian and wonder whether there might not be a similar scheme in France, which led me to discover that yes, there is, but of course it’s in the dreary North:

…which led me to google “cheap property South of France” and find this charming “fixer-upper:”

…which led me here:
