    Sicily mayor offers bargain homes

    London too expensive? How about a home in small-town Sicily
    A small town in western Sicily has come up with a revolutionary solution to solve its property problems.

    They are offering houses in the town, which sits between two rivers, for just a single euro (81 pence; $1.44).

    How tempting! I worked with a woman years ago, who was from Palermo. She showed me some photos of the area and I fell in love with it. Sicily is very beautiful.

    The only catch is you have to agree to restore the home you buy (earthquake damage) and trying to do that remotely, when you don't speak the native language, would certainly be difficult.

    Very tempting. I'm stopping off at Palermo in a couple of weeks time. I'm going on a short cruise round the Mediterranean, can't wait.
