I don't know why that makes me so sad to read... not set foot in Italy again.

Mel, you must have been totally scunnered with your experience. I'm glad you have got your money back.

I wish you every happiness after all your angst.

Mags,
I fortunately am not one of the cases involved but know those involved
and it has been a nightmare for them. Their marriage and mental health broke down and
all because they believed the dream.
i did complete, but have my apt on the market...I dont expect
that it will sell and I will not disclose the reasons why for fear of opening a can of worms!!
I can understand why they and Howard and others wont set foot back in Italy.

Not to return to italy is a shame. Please do not let one bad apple taint that whole barrel. We have had happy experiences in buying and staying. We are looking forward to our holiday this year but unfortunately only for 3 weeks this time. Perhaps staying in a village would heal the bad karma.

Hi everyone. Just read through all the messages and its great that at least some have managed to get their money back. Well done them! However, we are one of many that are still trying. Our lawyers were Giambrone and Law who did not represent us properly and we cannot get our money back! Our lawyer Claudio Minasi, based in London is trying to get a group action together on a "No win, no fee" basis against the Giambrone firm. A top London firm are willing to carry out the work if we can get together more buyers. If you were with Giambrone and Law and have been unable to get your money back, contact Claudio Minasi. His details are on this site. He has put a message in the Legal section. It will cost you nothing and is worth an email!
