      The water is heated by solar panels on the roof and there is also a back up boiler.
      The glass doors of the rear of the house lead to another covered eating area which is well sheltered and perfect for windier days .There is also a handy outdoor kitchen and fabulous wood pizza oven and BBQ.
      Stairs lead to the huge roof terrace which is the ideal spot for sun-downers.

      The villa is located 5 minutes from the local town of Carovigno with its fabulous local restaurants and 5 minutes from the beautiful beaches of Torre Guaceto. You are also only 4 km fro the seaside village of Specchiolla where you can eat fresh seafood right on the seafront year round.

      The nearby beaches are ideal family places. Shallow coves and protected areas make the visit to the beach a pleasure. There are also many beach clubs and water sports are offered, including kite surfing. The beaches are deserted in the winter and very rarely busy at other times than July and August, the main holiday months.

      The ancient forest of olive trees surrounding Serranova are magnificent and it's fantastic to cycle or drive through.
      Unlike most other areas of Apulia, Carovigno and Torre Guaceto have mainly flat land. There is one main dual carriageway down the coast and the rest of the roads have been unchanged for hundreds of years.

      The olives are harvested in December to February and are handpicked to ensure they produce the best grade of extra virgin olive oil.

      Carovigno is a versatile area ideal for families looking for a holiday of sun, sea and activities. Santa Sabina and Specchiolla are sea side resorts full of fish restaurants and shops. Northern Italians choose Puglia as the most popular destination. Walkers and Bikers can enjoy the wonderful sand dune beaches of Torre Guaceto, Lecce, Brindisi and Alberobello. Those looking for more modern history can visit the WW2 landing sites at Gallipoli or Taranto.

      Holiday in southern Italy in April and May is amazing The warm temperature combined with the evening rain turns the hedgerows and fields around Torre Guaceto and Serranova into a spectacular site of colours. Wild flowers of all shapes and sizes.The beaches are small and exclusive and there are no hotels or fast food places in site for 20 km.

      Apulia rises in altitude the further north you go. The area around Torre Guaceto from the very southern tip of the heel up to Serra Nova is very flat. Once you get to Ostuni the landscape changes.
