Join D&G Design’s team of experts at a beautifully restored farmhouse in the hills of Le Marche to explore homes for sale and gain face to face advice.

Meet an immigration lawyer and receive up to date information, take a tour of homes for sale with trusted real estate agents, dine with fellow expats during a Q&A session, and attend a seminar with David and Gary on how to renovate your new Italian home.

Explore Le Marche and discover your new vacation home or property investment – be it a cool coastal pad, countryside abode or a city dwelling. Visit local wineries, artisans who create beautiful pieces for the home, and even take part in a ceramics, pasta making, or stone carving class.
