What Is The Area Like?
Torre Guaceto is a Unesco nature reserve of 22.000 sq. Km, and nearby Serranova is the centre of the Reserve. A visitor's centre on the main street tells you about the area.
Torre Guaceto offers a beautiful light and noise-pollution-free environment. Still, within ten minutes, you can be in the lively seaside resorts of Santa Sabina and Specciholla.
The area has many small towns, restaurants, and bars serving locally caught fish.
You and your guests may come to the villa and location for different reasons. Some reach to take in the winter sun and chill out, while others crash at the beach or pool. You may cycle and walk, taking in all the area's history. The Roman Via Appia is not far away; the Norman legacy is found in the local towns of San Vito Carovigno, and Brindisi has the famous Roman museum.
If you go to the beach late at night, you might see the locals wading into the water to catch sea life. Watching them with little lamps strapped to their heads, their net on the back, olive oil in an old washing-up liquid bottle, and a spear is funny. They squirt a little drop of olive oil on the surface, and the squid goes crazy!!!
The beaches are small and exclusive, and no hotels or fast food places are on site for 20 km Bliss!!!! Mobile food and drink units go to the beach in the summer, the best of both worlds.
The surrounding area has no building on more than two floors, so no large hotels, condos or apartment blocks.
The ancient Roman forest of olive trees surrounding Serranova is magnificent, and it's fantastic to cycle or drive through. The tree's roots come from the ground like twisted legs, and the branches resemble arms. The thick trunks are scored and have large knots almost look like faces; it reminds you of the trees in the Lord of the Rings.
When you drive through the nature reserve, you are almost deafened by the noise of the crickets sitting in the trees.
The beaches are ideal family places. With shallow coves and protected areas, visiting the beach is a pleasure. The beaches are deserted in the winter and very rarely busy at other times. July and August get busy with Italians from the north, but the whole experience of watching Italian families interact is excellent.
If your holiday is not just for the sun, you are interested in walking and cycling. Unlike other areas of Puglia, Serra Nova and Torre Guaceto is flat land. There is one main dual carriageway down the coast, and the rest of the roads have been unchanged for hundreds of years. Apuglia rises in altitude the further north you go. The area around Torre Guaceto, from the southern tip of the heel up to Serranova, is very flat. Once you get to Ostuni, the landscape changes.
Serranova is a versatile area ideal for families looking for a holiday of sun, sea and activities. Northern Italians choose Puglia as the most popular destination. Santa Sabina and Specchiolla are seaside resorts full of fish restaurants and shops. For couples looking to relax and chill or have a long romantic weekend, it's only 2 hour's flight from the Uk, so weekends are feasible.
Walkers and bikers can enjoy the wonderful dune beaches of Torre Guaceto, Lecce, Brindisi and Alberobello.
Holiday in southern Italy in April and May. The warm temperature combined with the evening rain turns the hedgerows and fields around Torre Guaceto into a spectacular site of colours. Fantastic! Wildflowers of all shapes and sizes.
Twenty minutes south is Brindisi, a cosmopolitan town of 80,000 inhabitants. English is here more widely spoken as Brindisi has a Un base of 400 employees and many ex-pats from different countries. In Brindisi, you can join language classes and cooking schools! Brindisi also has an International school.
Finally, you are surrounded by olive groves: The olives are handpicked from December to February to ensure they produce the best extra virgin olive oil grade.
What More To See:
Ostuni and Lecce are beautiful cities to visit.
The villa has the advantage of being not far from central areas of world interest, such as the 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 beautiful white town of Ostuni, located on top of a hill with fantastic sea views; the medieval town of Oria; the wealthy baroque town of Martina Franca; the petite and charming Cisternino, 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 15 -20 minutes 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 its fascination 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 socializing with Italian neighbours, walking to the café and buying a newspaper and a cup of coffee in the morning and having all amenities within reach at 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 grand secluded 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 known for its many fine villas, some antique, in the area.
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; Bari in the north by car on the motorway in approximately 1 hour 15 minutes and nearby Brindisi in the south in about minutes.
More To See In Apulia:
Bari, 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 Traini, 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, the beach life, historical tours in the main towns, cooking classes, learning a bit of Italian at language schools in Lecce, dining at the many country and seaside restaurants, night clubbing at the beach clubs of Torre Santa Sabina and further north up to 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, kitesurfing, swimming & beach life. Scuba diving and fishing are available in Santa Sabina. Torre Guaceto nature reserve also extends to the sea, so the coastline presents a heaven of sea life, ideal for snorkelling.
Golf has five good courses, and San Domenico is world class (Pga 2014 Challenge Final). Tennis, horseback riding, hiking and bicycle tours are other options for the active-minded. Squash clubs are located in Bari, Bitonto and other places.
Southern Italy is warm and friendly, and the temperature in Serra Nova is temperate all year round. Even in the cold of January, it doesn't drop much below 15c. Serra Nova has a microclimate.
The temperature in Puglia is very temperate. May, June and July, Sept tend to be 25 to 30 March, April and October in the 20c. The summer months can get to 40c, ideal for those sun lovers.
Winter temperatures; Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb. Range from 10c to 25c, it depends on the sun. We have had weeks of endless sunshine during the "Winter". Places like Ostuni, Fasano and Cisternino are very hilly and can even have occasional snowfalls. The temperature can differ between these cities by 10c.
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 much more time outside than inside and 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. Where ever 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 inadequate 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 Italians' most popular holiday destination. But rest assured, no tourist villages will ever be built because the coastline is protected in Apulia, and people are against modern developments that do not fit into this historical landscape. Therefore, prices are bound to rise with increased demand for a fixed and limited number of properties,
