Interior designer Dawn Cavanagh-Hobbs and entrepreneur Michael Hobbs, both 53, split their time between their homes in Oakham and the Le Marche area of Italy, where, through their business, Appassionata, they offer 'fractional ownership' to people seeking a slice of Italy.
November 10, 2013
The Italian dream used to be a farmhouse in the hills. Now buyers want a place on the piazza.
For many the idea of factional ownership is linked to extremely bad memories of timeshare style scams. However, if the truth be told timeshare in itself was a attractive idea, hijacked by unscrupulous marketing operations. Fractional ownership is very similar to the older concept - with some very notable differences.
