What a better place to have that home than in the Bergamo area. It's within only around 2 and 1/2 hours to Switzerland, France, the Adriatic Sea or the Mediterranean Sea. And now that the airport at Orio al Serio has become international, it's just a hop to other countries, or even just back home.
Local mountain chalets are from 50,000 euro and even less! Village apartments or houses in the area are the same or more, depending on what you have in mind - and in your pocket book!
Have a look - to see for yourself - and think about new possibilities for traveling! Try the region of Lombardy.
