The Italian village of Ollolai in Sardinia has a problem. It has about 200 historic stone cottages in need of owners, but the village population has been shrinking for decades. The solution? Sell every one of the houses for just €1 (about $1.25 USD).
That’s right, you can own a piece of Italian history for the same cost of running your laundry. But there’s a catch: true to the meaning of “historic”, these homes have undergone a considerable amount of wear and tear, and will demand blood, sweat, and tears before meeting the demands of a modern lifestyle.
