    Additional information

    • The villas have the advantage of being not far from main areas of world interest such as 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 town of Carovigno, located on top of a hill; 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 can be reached in 50 minutes 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.
    • Further to the south, inland SALENTO have a number of historical charming villages with ancient history. In Sternatina and Martignano to the south of Lecce antique Greek is still spoken by the villagers.

Surano has a small town center with very nice antique buildings for sale. SPONGANO again is a small village surrounded by olive groves.
    • The east coast of Salento is rougher than the south west 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 the beach life, pizzerias, restaurants and disco music summer time.
    • SANTA CATARINA well known also for its many fine villas in the area, some antique.
    • The sea outside of PORTO CESAREO further up the coast is probably the most beautiful and fantastic sunsets.
    • MORE TO SEE IN APULIA:
    • BARI being the commercial capital city with 250 000 inhabitants' offers the best shopping, a grand opera house, called the Petruzzelli teatro; a large medical city center 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 TRANI, a sophisticated town with a beautiful half moon bay & marina. Continue north to CASTEL DEL MONTE, which is the mystical castle built by Frederic II 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 large nature and wild life Reserve and offers hiking and scenic trips around the peninsula. From here there are daily boat trips to the small TREMITI ISLANDS.
    • SPORTS:
    • As Apulia is a peninsula and surrounded by the two seas- the Adriatic in the north and the Ionic in the south - water sports dominate in the area; sailing, yachting, water skiing, kite-surfing swimming & beach life. Golf is available with 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.
    • THE WEATHER:
    • Being south, Apulia has warmer weather than Northern Italy and even in the "winter months" of December to February the average number of sun hours per day is 4 and in June-August 10-11 sun hours per day! This means you can enjoy a long season of nice weather in Apulia.
    • The water temperature in beginning of May is in average 19 degrees, up to 27 degrees in August/September and 19 degrees in November.
    • 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 at 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 low means value for money at bargain prices for the international buyers. We see more and more foreign visitors coming to Apulia and in our opinion investments will show good growth.
    • Directions: GETTING THERE: 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 70 minutes and nearby Brindisi in the south in approximately 20 minutes.
