    Local information

    • From the masseria, the beaches of the Adriatic Sea are easily reached in approximately 25 minutes. VillaNova is the nearest sea side resort. Torre Santa Sabina a little bit further south is one of the nicest sea side villages. On the coast line there several seaside places with many beaches, restaurants and cafes. A further 10 minutes to the south is the beautiful nature reserve TORRE GUACETO by the sea. It offers an attractive escape from beach resorts as here you find unspoiled beaches and no cars allowed. The parking is at the visitor's centre and there are organised nature walks, cycle trekking and snorkeling trips.
    • The property has the advantage of being so close to a main area of world interest - the beautiful Ostuni, the "white city" (12 km- 15 min); to the charming Cisternino (10 km - 10 min); to other sites like the mile long caves of CASTELLANA; the archaeological excavations of the Roman EGNATIA by the Adriatic coast line; the Trulli houses of ALBEROBELLO - an UNESCO World heritage site: the medieval town of ORIA; the wealthy baroque town of MARTINA FRANCA (16 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 can be reached in over one hour and has countless medical churches and a great richness of architecture. In town there is also the famous Roman amphibian theater which is used for music and drama performances in the open during the summer season. Lecce is a wonderful town for long walks, enjoying the fantastic atmosphere, bars, outside restaurants and, naturally, great shops.

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!
