25 Mar Smart working by the sea in Italy: where to go
Smart working by the sea? For many it is a dream, but what we want to say today is that it can be turned into reality.
Yes, we have selected a series of seaside destinations perfect for those who work remotely. Let’s discover them together.
The smart working phenomenon in Italy
Since 2020 we have been hearing more and more about smart working in Italy. The reason is linked to the Covid-19 pandemic, but we can say that even in 2022, with the progressive loosening of restrictions, there are those who continue to prefer smart working and do not want to return to the office.
Let’s take a look at the steps that led to the boom in this type of working method. Let us remind that smart working was included as a compulsory working method, naturally when possible and not for essential activities, in the now well-known Decreto Italia (Decree Law no. 18 of 17 March 2020).
Smart working has taken hold in both the public and private sectors. It has been extended several times until 31 July 2021. Since then, however, it has been a free choice for many.
Many have realised that working remotely is preferable as not having to go to the office every day allows them to work from home or, why not, even from the sea. For this reason, where possible and when agreed with employers, there are still many workers who have decided to make this choice.
Usually it was freelancers who worked in smart working, but today the number of admirers is growing. It should also be borne in mind that the current legislation, in force since 1 April 2022, stipulates that smart working can be requested and granted for fragile workers working in the private sector or in public administration. This possibility is currently recognised until 30 June 2022.
The preferred destinations for smart working by the sea in Italy
After having explained what we are talking about and explored the reasons for the success of the phenomenon, the most eagerly awaited moment has arrived. That in which we list a series of destinations for smart working by the sea in Italy. Pen and paper in hand, the suggestions are coming and they will be many.
There are those who only need an internet connection, those who prefer to have the organised spaces of a coworking space at their fingertips and those who, instead, need meeting rooms. In all cases you can find the best solution for your needs and this also applies when you want a beautiful sea view.
Agile workers love to work away from home and often the perfect destination is a stone’s throw from a beautiful beach or crystal clear waters. The Italian coast has a lot to offer in this respect. Whether it’s the Adriatic, Tyrrhenian, Ionian or even the Ligurian Sea, it doesn’t matter. What matters is to look out of the window of your temporary office and see the sea.
Nowadays there are bathing establishments organised for smart working, hotels offering packages designed specifically for agile workers, coworking facilities overlooking the sea and much more. Those who choose to work this way are spoilt for choice.
Yes, but now the question is: where?
In every Italian region overlooking the sea, there are opportunities for smart working and enjoying the landscape, sun and beauty. The Riviera Romagnola is always one step ahead in this respect. There are many bathing establishments that allow smart working directly on the beach, as well as the so-called smart working hotels created to meet the needs of all the smart workers who choose this area as their perfect destination.
Even Liguria has nothing to envy. Here you can find residences with wi-fi that allow you to work at your best, while enjoying all the privacy you could have at home.
Sicily and Sardinia are also popular destinations for smart workers. Italy’s two main islands are also ideal for those who want to work while enjoying paradisiacal landscapes and all the comfort of being close to the sea. There are also many facilities in these areas.
The same can be said, for example, for Puglia. You’ll be spoilt for choice in the Valle d’Itria, the Trulli Coast, Gargano and Salento. Finding your smart working solution with a sea view is easier than ever. Here too you can find residences, holiday homes equipped with fast wi-fi connections, and beach establishments fully equipped for those who need to work on the beach.
If you don’t want to miss out on the opportunity to be a stone’s throw from the Amalfi Coast, we recommend taking into consideration all the smart working solutions on the sea in the area. Salerno and Naples are also well equipped to meet the needs of agile workers.
What to choose and how to find your destination
To choose the best destination, you need to understand what you need. Certainly having a fast and stable internet connection helps a lot, especially if you have to use specific programmes that require a certain stability. Of course, depending on your needs, you can also opt for a portable connection, but usually locations designed specifically for smart workers offer everything you need.
Privacy is also important. Workers need to work carefully and with concentration. Preference should be given to facilities that offer specific, quiet and, why not, private spaces. In this way you can produce at your best and you can also hold online meetings without problems and without interruptions.
Smart working at the seaside is an achievable dream, as you can see. With summer just around the corner, many people are certainly looking for the best solution to turn their dream into reality.
