Profile
This beautiful villa is immersed in the Southern Italian countryside and looks out over acres of verdant olive groves, all the way to the Adriatic Sea. The architecture of the house has been designed to reflect the local style, with a fresh feel. The stone archways around the panoramic sun terraces create a stylish shaded dining area for lazy breakfasts and long lunches. The 8x4m swimming pool is perfect for cooling off in the heat of the summer. The many sandy beaches of the Puglian coast are easily reached from here – just a picturesque drive through the olive groves. The famous White City of Ostuni is a short distance away and visitors can enjoy a wide selection of restaurants and bars among its beautiful cobbled streets. Even closer is the town of Carovigno, completely untouched by tourism and offering excellent home.

The Structure is composed by a fully fitted modern kitchen (fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine smeg double oven and 5 ringed gas hob with extractor fan, microwave) and a modern living area with open plan vaulted lounge, tastefully decorated. It has seating and dining areas for up to 6 people and it is equipped with a 50" TV with Blue Ray DVD player, music system and DVD's and books for your use. Sky News and CH4 are available on free view. Three double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms open in the adjacent area.

Accessibility:
The main part of the house is all on one level so theoretically a wheelchair would be possible however the outdoor terrain is rugged.

Area Information

The Accommodation is only some minutes drive fromIn Ostuni and Carovigno where you can find a wide variety of restaurants, osterias, ice-cream parlours and pizzerias. Visit the Castle in Carovigno, where during the summer months, many concerts take place. Also many "Festas" take place in the town center Piazza. Ostuni's Piazza Liberta is a great place to see various music concerts, religious parades, Street entertainers and much more. The famous Horse Parade of "St Oronzo" takes place, in August, through the streets of Ostuni. The architecture in these towns is very beautiful and representative of the area. The local supermarket is approximately five minutes by car. Both Ostuni and Carovigno have excellent individual fish, meat, pasta, fruit and vegetable, wine and cheese shops. The Carovigno open air market, every Tuesday, and the Saturday market in Ostuni, are a must visit to grab a bargain. The Villa also provides easy access to other beautiful Baroque towns of Lecce, Martina Franca, Locorotondo and the Famous Trulli of Alberobello.

Coast/Beach 
Set between two seas and boasting more than 750 Km of coastline, Puglia has some of the most stunning beaches in Italy. We are 5km, 6 mins by car, to the beaches of Santa Sabina and Pantanagiani.
Most beaches offer facilities such as beach bars, and there are also plenty of quieter beaches on which to simply sit back and relax. Discover an amazing array of bird and marine life amid the pristine coastline and countryside within the nearby coastal nature reserve of Torre Guacato (13.2km).

Golf The San Domenico Golf course lies near the small fisherman village of Savelletri (36km away), with its southern boundary as close to the sea as the road and rocky coastline will allow. To the north are the olive groves and agricultural fields the site was once part of.
The formerly flat and featureless land is now a challenging 18 hole golf course which offers an unforgettable experience for visitors and superb view of the Adriatic Sea from every tee, green and fairway.

Special Interest Holidays You could relax with a full body massage, or keep in shape with our Yoga expert. 24 hours notice required.

Heating   Usage will be metered throughout your stay and you will be charged accordingly. Charges must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked to make a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.

Water and Electricity    Please note that most of the properties in our portfolio are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.

 

Internet Connection   Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
