Abruzzo Second Home Services

Your one-stop-shop for second home services

Hello! We are Mark and Jane Barton; an English couple now living in Abruzzo full time, and the proprieters of Abruzzo second home services. My background is in the construction industry. I am a qualified plumber, electrician, boiler engineer and carpenter.

We have decided to offer second home owners in and around Casoli the types of services we needed when we had a second home here. We see ourselves as a one stop shop for bespoke second home services.

We are based just outside Casoli and operate within a 20km radius of the town.


The services we offer are:

If the service you need isn't listed call us, we rarely say no.


All our prices are negotiable, and fees can be paid in Sterling or Euros. But as a guide:

You may be thinking 'why do we need to pay for any of this when we have a neighbour who will do it for free?' and the answer is you probably don't have to. The difference is the peace of mind we offer - we guarantee to show up if you ask us to. So you'll never need to make a last minute panic trip to fix a problem we could deal with on the spot. Why waste any the 90 days you're allowed in the country on trivia?


(From previous work in the UK)

From Lorraine Near Brackley Mark has done a few jobs for me from putting in a new garden gate to moving my bathroom from downstairs to upstairs, he works hard with hardly any breaks and seems to be a perfectionist which means the quality of his work is superb.

I would highly recommend him to all customers, I have passed his details onto older clients and I know they are really pleased with both his work and his prices, I have always found him to be honest and trustworthy.

From Luan United Kingdom Mark has completed many works at our property including bathroom design and fits, window fitting, electrical work, carpentry, plumbing, oak flooring and a bespoke fireplace. He has completely transformed several of our rooms and is booked in to do more. Mark's work is faultless, he thinks through every aspect of the room leaving us with beautiful, perfect and practical results. Only wish we had met Mark years ago. A true craftsman... thank you Mark, Luan and James.

From Emma Bury St Edmunds Mark has completed a complete bathroom refit for me before and so there was no question when I wanted another one completing. He can do all the work, so you don't have to wait for separate tradesmen to complete different stages. He left minimum mess but does leave the wow factor when he finishes as his work is absolutely impeccable.

From Jan Mixbury As one of Mark's 'not quite elderly' customers, I cannot praise him highly enough for his total professional commitment, trustworthiness, excellent multiple skills and attention to detail. All of which make up the truly amazing results of his hard work, and with consideration for my comfort throughout the build.
