We are driving to the property and spot a white trullo 4-cone and beautiful surroundings. Ideal as a letting investment or summer holiday home in a peaceful place, 30 km from the white sandy beaches and close to towns for all amenities.
What To See:
From the villa, the beaches of the Adriatic Sea are easily reached in approximately 30 minutes. Villanova is the nearest seaside resort. Torre Santa Sabina is one of the loveliest seaside villages further south. On the coastline are several coastal places with many beaches, restaurants and cafes. An additional 10 minutes to the south is the beautiful nature reserve Torre Guaceto by the sea. It offers an attractive escape from beach resorts as you find unspoiled beaches and no cars allowed here. The parking is at the visitor's centre, and there are organized nature walks, cycle trekking and snorkelling trips.
The villa has the advantage of being so close to a central area of world interest - the beautiful Ostuni, the "white city" (15 km- 20 min); to the charming Cisternino (also 12 km - 15 min); to other sites like the fantastic mile-long caves of Castellana; the archaeological excavations of the Roman Egnatia by the Adriatic coastline; the Trulli houses of Alberobello - a Unesco World Heritage site: the medieval town of Oria; the wealthy baroque town of Martina Franca (12 km); the Zoo Safari Park of Fasano (lots of fun for children and adults alike); the caves of Polignano A Mare, well known also for its tasty ice cream; Grottaglie famous for its ceramics and old stone carvings; and last but not least the famous baroque city of Lecce which is called the Florence of the South. Lecce is a beautiful town for long walks, enjoying the fantastic atmosphere, bars, outside restaurants and great shops. Lecce can be reached in over one hour and has countless medical churches and a great richness of architecture. In town, the famous Roman amphibian theatre is also used for music and drama performances in the open during summer.
Further to the south, inland Salento has several charming historical villages with ancient history. The townhouses often come with a garden and roof terrace, and it's fascinating to open the simple door from the street - and inside, almost like a little palace with a garden! The advantage of staying in a town is socialising with Italian neighbours, walking to the cafe and buying a newspaper and a cup of coffee in the morning and having all amenities within reach during daytime and nighttime.
In Sternatina and Martignano to the south of Lecce, antique Greek is still spoken by the villagers.
Maglie is like a mini Lecce with many fine buildings. Muro Leccese is more diminutive and represents a small town/village with an excellent architectural history. Cutrofiano is famous for French holiday home ownership. Ruffano has many fine old buildings for sale, waiting to find new owners and to be restored. Surano has a small town centre with very excellent antique facilities for sale. Spongano, again, is a small village surrounded by olive groves. Here you can see secluded, grand villas and country retreats owned by foreigners and families from North Italy who come to relax in rural Salento.
The east coast of Salento is rougher than the southwest and for people who enjoy the sea and fishing. Somewhat more elegant than the east coast. Castro is beautiful with its location on top of the cliff by the sea and many villas with direct access to the sea. Santa Cesarea Terme is a spa resort, very popular with a beautiful setting and bay.
The cost from Santa Maria Di Leuca to Gallipoli has many fine sandy beaches. The villages are perhaps not the prettiest but room for beach life, pizzerias, restaurants and disco music in the summertime.
Santa Catarina is also well known for its many fine villas in the area, some antique.
The sea outside Porto Cesareo, further up the coast, is probably the most beautiful and fantastic sunset.
By air, there is a choice of two international airports, served by Ryanair, Easyjet, Ba and others, both easily reached; nearby Brindisi in the south in approximately 45 minutes( 50 km) and Bari in the north by car on the motorway in about 80 minutes (92 km).
More To See In Apulia:
Bari is the commercial capital city with 250 000 inhabitants, offers the best shopping, a grand opera house called the Petruzzelli teatro, and a large medical city centre with many museums. Just north of Bari lies a little town called Giovinazzo, a true gem, right by the sea. Further north is Molfetta Outlet, a famous shopping galleria and 20 minutes further is Trani, a sophisticated town with a beautiful half-moon bay & marina. Continue north to Castel Del Monte, the mystical castle Frederic Ii built in the 14th Century.
Within a 2.5-hour drive to the North of Bari lies Gargano, the peninsula called the spur of the Italian boot. Gargano forms a significant nature and wildlife Reserve and offers hiking and scenic trips around the peninsula. From here, there are daily boat trips to the small Tremiti Islands.
Lifestyle And Culture:
The Italian lifestyle means many things, especially socializing; the home is used for sleeping and breakfast, and the Italians go out for enjoyment and dining. There are so much you can experience, like early morning markets in small towns, music festivals, religious carnivals, beach life, historical tours in the main towns, cooking classes, learning Italian at language schools in Lecce, dining at the many country and seaside restaurants, and nightclubs at the beach clubs of Capitolo.
As Apulia is a peninsula surrounded by two seas- the Adriatic in the north and the Ionic in the south - water sports dominate in the area; sailing, yachting, water skiing, kite-surfing, swimming & beach life. Golf has five good courses, and San Domenico is world class (Pga 2014 Challenge Final). Squash clubs are located in Bari, Bitonto and other places. Tennis, horseback riding, hiking and bicycle tours are other options for the active-minded.
Being south, Apulia has warmer weather than Northern Italy; even in the "winter months" of December to February, the average number of sun hours per day is four and 10-11 sun hours per day in June-August! This means you can enjoy a long season of nice weather in Apulia. When you plan to buy a holiday home in Apulia, think you will spend a lot more time outside than on the inside compared to at home. Therefore, you will need plenty of terrace space, pergolas etc., at your Apulian property, and also, cooking facilities outside are convenient.
The water temperature at the beginning of May is, on average, 19 degrees, up to 27 degrees in August/September and 19 degrees in November. This means you & family will spend time at the beach. Wherever you are in Apulia, you can reach the shores within 30 minutes!
Why Buy In Apulia?
Apulia has until recently been called the hidden treasure of Italy, unknown to most tourists who come & stay in Rome, Florence, Venice and the Italian Riviera. However, all this is rapidly changing because of massive investments in the infrastructure, such as the improved motorways, enlarged airports and the introduction of low-cost airlines such as Ryanair and Easyjet. The property prices are low in Apulia, and common means value for money at bargain prices for international buyers. We see more and more foreign visitors coming to Apulia, and in our opinion, investments will show good growth in value because of the increased demand; also, for northern Italians, Apulia has become the most popular holiday destination for Italians. But rest assured, no tourist villages will ever be built because, in Apulia, the coastline is protected; people are against modern developments which do not fit into this historical landscape. Therefore, prices are bound to rise with increased demand for a fixed and limited number of properties,
