It is a question that you have to face if you are about to move and therefore buy a house.
The choice between living in the city or in the countryside is not easy, both from a concrete and an emotional point of view. With experience, we have worked with many clients and as a result we have met many types of people.

Let’s start by talking about the privileges of choosing to live in the city.
The closeness between home and work
Surely one of the first points we think about when choosing our new home is the position with respect to the workplace. Living in the city, the likelihood of being close to work is much higher than for those living in the countryside.

Another point in favor of choosing to live in the city is being able to leave the car in the garage. Especially in few places, where distances are easily covered on foot, by bicycle or by public transport. For those who even choose the historic center as a place to live, the stretches of road to go are minimal.
It is also important to mention that it is a greener choice to use the bicycle or walk to work every day instead of taking the car. It also becomes an investment of time and money, saying goodbye to long traffic lines and wasted time looking for parking.

The city also gives access to countless “entertainment”. Going to the cinema without having to take the car and look for parking, going out for dinner and walking home through the historic center are incomparable advantages that only a citizen can enjoy.
