Villa
Charming antique property, beautifully restored with traditional materials: it's composed of 3 master bedrooms, one outside and one inside dining area for 8 with TV. Surrounded by a private mediterranean garden and olive groves with spaces to sit and relax, the villa is located in the peaceful countryside of Ostuni, in 'Valle d'Itria' (the 'Trulli Valley'), just few minutes away by car from Ostuni and the major beaches. Ostuni, known as “the White City', is the nearest town, a few minutes away by car. The home (farmhouse) is composed of three independent bedrooms with private bathroom, air conditioning/heater, and their own kitchenette and breakfast table; moreover, and it's possible to add an extra single bed, or baby cot (at an additional price).

Surrounded by a private mediterranean garden and olive groves with spaces to sit and relax, the villa is located in the peaceful countryside of Ostuni, in 'Valle d'Itria' (the 'Trulli Valley'), just few minutes away by car from Ostuni and the major beaches. Ostuni, known as “the White City', is the nearest town, a few minutes away by car. The home (farmhouse) is composed of three independent bedrooms with private bathroom, air conditioning/heater, and their own kitchenette and breakfast table; moreover, and it's possible to add an extra single bed, or baby cot (at an additional price). The covered Dining Room for 8 is elegantly furnished with a pantry, a dining table with 8 chairs, TV, its own Kitchen and Guest Bathroom. Furthermore, there is a small loundry with washing machine and dryer. The garden: the property has a huge lawn surrounded by olive trees and some fruit trees (such as the walnut tree, pomegranate, almond, prickly pear, orange tree, plum, fig..), with areas where to sit and relax. There are two external dining areas: the huge one in the front has a barbecue and can host up to 8 people; the one in the back is suitable for 6. In addition, to relax and sunbathe you will find deckchairs and benches. With its still expanses of olive trees as far as the eye can see, the 'Itria Valley' is red soil, green groves and vineyards, and white 'trullo' houses under a serene blue sky: essentially, a marvelous chromatic effect that repeats itself several times over. Must see: Given the Valley’s chalky-white of its constructions, and the Mediterranean vegetation of its flat countryside, every town and borgo seems enveloped in a magical, almost fairytale-like atmosphere. In the Itria Valley’s heart is the obligatory stop of Alberobello, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where it is impossible not to be charmed by the lanes of the Monti and Aja Piccola neighborhoods. Yet the trulli sightings don’t stop at Alberobello. These structures dot the entire Itria Valley, from Cisternino, struck on a section of the Murge Plateau (the so-called Murgia dei Trulli); to the nearby Locorotondo, one of The Most Beautiful Villages of Italy. Called 'Luogorotondo' up until the mid-1800s for its rotund town center, the latter constitutes part of the 'Land of the Trulli.' The musts come in multiples here, with the “journey to the center of the earth” leading through the Grotte di Castellana (the Castellana Caves, in the Comune of Castellana Grotte), where both the Grave (pronounced GRAH-vay), the first and only vast cavern of its kind connected with the “outside world,” and the White Grotto leave just about everyone of their visitors absolutely speechless. Just a few kilometers away lies Martina Franca, the most populous Comune in the Valley, known above all for its splendid Baroque architecture and for the Martina Franca Music Festival. Then, the “White City” par excellence, and the only one fronting the sea, is Ostuni, with its characteristic historic center, once painted entirely white. Together with Taranto and Santa Maria di Leuca, it creates a tri-city area that is one of the Salento zone’s travel hotspots. Must do: Be sure to visit the Grotte di Castellana, open year-round; led through the wonders of these caves by expert guides, you won’t be sorry you took on this fascinating excursion. Take part in walks, workshops and tastings at the many educational agritourisms and manor farms (masserie) spread throughout the territory; they offer lessons, observations, and hands-on experiences land to table - from fruit and vegetable picking to transformation and preparation of the zero-kilometer agricultural products (not just food, but even artisan crafts, e.g. creations in reed). Don’t Miss… The Living Nativity staged among the trulli of Alberobello every December is a spectacular sight, as is the Passion Play on Holy Friday. And in Martina Franca, the Itria Valley Festival has been held each July since 1975. On the hill overlooking the elegant Borgo of Fasano, we find Zoo Safari in the midst of a wood; this park that adults and children alike will love offers an incredible panoply of more than 40 animal species living free in their native habitats. Must eat.. One word: 'Sporcamussi'. You will be forgiven if you leave the table wearing traces of these creme and powdered-sugar bombs; actually, the name almost requires it (Sporcamussi translates to 'Dirty Mouth' in Barese dialect). Live a little and savor these, the typical, delicious sweets of Bari and the Itria Valley! How to arrive the nearest airports are - Brindisi (37 km - 40mins) - Bari (47km - 50mins) CREDIT CARDS ARE NOT ACCEPTED.More
