You can get paid £12,700 to move to a ridiculously pretty Italian island

Picture yourself basking in the sunshine, tucking into some of that world-famous Italian food, surrounded by sprawling green hills and golden sand beaches.

Well, that's exactly what you can get on one spectacular Italian island – and they're currently offering to pay for you to move there.

The government of the Mediterranean island Sardinia has announced they'll be offering a grant of 15,000 euros – around £12,700 – for anyone who wants to move to the dream destination, reports the Daily Record.

A total of £38million has been set aside for the scheme, so there's ample opportunity to snap up one of the coveted places.

The idea is to help with dwindling population numbers of Sardinia's rural towns and villages.

Sardinia is already a firmly established holiday hotspot thanks to its incredible weather, world famous beaches and delicious local food.

However, there are some conditions for those who want to take advantage of the offer.

The cash must be used to purchase or renovation of a property, but it does not have to be repaid immediately, meaning it can act as a loan to get your foot in the door.

The house must also be in a municipality with fewer than 3,000 inhabitants and the grant should not exceed half of the purchase or renovation costs, reports

In a press release, the Sardinian president Christian Solinas said: "Thanks to the contributions to their first houses, this is strengthened and becomes fertile ground for those who will move there or decide to build a family.

"There can be no growth without a real enhancement of the territories, of the interior and most disadvantaged areas, which must pass through new policies for their repopulation."
