Fractional Ownership Property in Italy

Realpoint Property directors John Dillon and Eddy Crompton recently spent a long week visiting Fractional Ownership developments in Italy. The mission was to evaluate the products for their marketing campaign of Fractional Property in Italy.

“We were very impressed with the attention to detail and the quality of the developments and also the people working in the business” commented John Dillon. The developments vary significantly, which is seen as a positive aspect – there will be a Fractional offering to suit everyone.

Most of the Fractional Property is in Tuscany – understandably as this is still the most popular region of Italy. However, Realpoint are discussing the opportunity to promote a wonderful development in Umbria which is already popular with buyers and is in the last stages of completion. “This development is unique and one of the most impressive projects I have seen in the last decade” commented John Dillon, “it is important that we can offer a variety of options to our clients in different regions of Italy – as long as they are of the highest quality”.

Italy, along with much of Europe, is embracing Fractional Ownership property. Developers see this as a new alternative to the traditional model of build & sell, and also find that there is much more interest from buyers because of the additional services provided which are so important for Fractional Ownership to be successful.

“Fractional Ownership is starting to take off in Italy and Realpoint Property are set to be the market leaders” says Eddy Crompton, marketing director. He adds “Realpoint are currently top of page 1 on Google for clients searching for Fractional Property in Italy, and we already have clients contacting us with general enquiries about Fractional Property”


Realpoint believe that a key to the successful promotion of Fractional Property is in presenting the product clearly and simply, with a focus on the specific benefits of each Fractional Property. However it is also important that we can answer any questions that our clients may have. Our clients expect us to have the answers to their questions about Fractional Ownership in general, and about specific developments, which may vary in terms of what they offer.





One of the challenges is to explain how access to client’s share of the property is worked out. There are various models for this depending on the development and the organisation of the management company. Realpoint are busy working with market leaders to help simplify and clarify this and try to establish some basic models for developers to follow.

Realpoint have already launched two Fractional developments, with many more to come in the coming months.

Following the visit to Italy Realpoint would highly recommend the Fractional Property at Villa Petrischio, sold on a one tenth fractional basis, offers exclusive holiday residences on the grounds of a 18th century Tuscan mansion. This enchanting Resort, situated in a parkland setting including the outstanding 4-star Relais Villa Petrischio, offers magnificent views of the quiet Valdichiana, a rolling countryside of sunflowers, vineyards and olive trees. The Relais arises in the heart of Tuscany, on the highest hill of Farneta, a little village in the countryside of Cortona.
