      WHERE & WHY?

      Set in a tranquil agriturismo deep in the hills of Le Marche, enjoy a range of daily seminars and workshops from a panel of experts ready to share their knowledge and experience with you. We will give you the tools and information needed to prepare you whenever you are ready to make the move to Italy, in a relaxed, friendly environment surrounded by great company and amazing Italian cuisine!

      Owning a holiday home in Italy is life-enhancing, but the process can be quite lengthy and slightly daunting if you don’t know where to begin or which specialists to approach in house-searching, negotiating, restoring, and paying taxes and fees. Meeting useful professional contacts and fellow expats who will share their own personal stories gives you the best start possible to support you in planning your own Italian adventure!

      You will also come away with a clear picture of what type of property you can get for your budget, as well as gaining an insight into the best way to restore and renovate a home, along with what costs are involved.

      You will make friends and contacts to call on for advice, suggestions and tips, even after the workshop ends and you’ve returned home.

      Situated in a quiet valley overlooking views of rolling Marche countryside, Agriturismo Ramuse offers visitors the perfect glimpse into Italian living. Warm cosy bedrooms with terracotta flooring and wooden ceiling beams provide country charm, gardens offer sweeping views of valleys and mountains, and then there’s the food.

      Served on rustic tables beneath the vine-covered terrace, sample fresh produce grown on Ramuse’s farm while listening to engaging experts share their wealth of knowledge with you.

      We guarantee that you will come away from the workshop not only armed with plenty of house-buying facts, but feeling the kind of rejuvenation that only a few days in Le Marche’s countryside can bring.

      You will also have made plenty of new friends and useful contacts, not only our team of experts and fellow guests, but with the donkeys, chickens, truffle-hunting dogs and cats that share Ramuse with owner Paolo and his visitors.



      Ramuse’s restored bedrooms offer traditional Italian style in every way, with stone walls, shuttered windows, chestnut wooden beams, rustic fireplaces, comfortable twin or double beds and a private bathroom.


      Food & Drink

      All food served at Ramuse is either grown at the farm or sourced locally. Paolo prides himself on only offering food from suppliers who care about quality. 
In good weather, four-course evening meals are served outside, while during cooler months they are taken in the indoor dining room.



      As an eco-friendly agriturismo, you won’t see any plastic at Ramuse. You will see plenty of animals at its farm, stars in the night sky due to no light pollution, a pond with its own eco- system, and friendly pets. 
One of our favourites, Melissa, is a Sardinian donkey who strolls around the grounds with her daughter, Coccola. They love to be petted, and fed treats of fruits and vegetables.

        Your safety and wellbeing is important to us, and we take social distancing guidelines very seriously. It is our aim to ensure that everyone attending our events feel as comfortable as possible.

        Meals will be taken outside (weather permitting) beneath the vines of a covered portico. Tables allow for social distancing if required, and if covid measures are in place, our guest speakers will be seated away from the group. In Italy, hospitality venues are regularly inspected by Covid Marshalls to ensure that they comply with both hygiene and social distancing guidelines, although at the present time these controls have been relaxed due to lower cases.

        Should covid measures be in place, our house-hunting trip will be taken in small groups in clients own cars to ensure that everyone feels comfortable. We will enter each property beforehand and open all windows and doors. Should measures be relaxed as they are at present, we will conduct the house-hunting trip in a mini bus.

        We will provide plenty of hand sanitiser as well as D&G Design facemasks, but will not be offended if you prefer to use your own! Likewise, we will provide you with writing materials to make notes during the workshop, as well as all information on a USB memory stick for you to take home with you.
