Tucked away just five-minutes from the nearby coastline, this stunning three-bed villa is in an ideal location for a relaxing holiday by the sea. Delightful gardens and stunning green spaces embody the spirt of outdoor living which makes this region so special.
This beautiful casa has a whole host of outdoor spaces where you can soak up the sun, swim in the refreshing pool or enjoy al fresco meals on the enchanting terrace. Nothing beats enjoying a cool glass of local wine with family or friends in Puglia’s hot sun, followed by cooking delicious meals in the outdoor pizza oven.
Inside, inviting spaces are fitted with modern furnishings and attractive art – creating the perfect blend of style and comfort. Thoughtful amenities are placed around every corner, creating a warm and homely ambience. Create tasty dishes in the fully-equipped kitchen or head into town for some genuine Puglian cuisine that will keep you coming back for more!
When you’re not splashing about in the villa’s pool, visit the breathtakingly beautiful Grotta Verde that’s only a ten-minute drive away, a natural pool of water formed inside a cove. The stunning waters have a unique green colour that make it feel like a magical place to swim.
Take a walk through the quaint small town, only a five-minute drive from the villa or take in the untouched, natural landscapes around you as well as the incredibly crystalline sea so near. Swim into the clear waters from the remote rocky coastline or head west to the incredible sandy shores around Baie Verde or south to the mesmerising ‘Le Maldive del Salento’.
Situated on the very bottom of Italy’s ‘heel’ in Salento, this part of Puglia is known for its rocky shorelines as well as long stretches of sandy beaches and far-reaching horizons. The region is also renowned for its olive oil production, the centuries-old olive groves are a delight to see. Puglia’s idyllic white-washed villages and towns and Mediterranean shores make it a popular destination for all.
In the Salento region of southern Puglia, Casale Attarico is a short drive from the coastal town of Castro (5km) and within walking distance of a small local town with restaurants, shops and an historic castle. The villa is surrounded by stunning natural landscapes and it’s around 2km from the sea where you can swim in the crystal-clear waters from the rocky shore.
One particular highlight of this area is Grotta Verde, around a 10-minute drive away, where you can swim into a natural swimming pool inside a cave, with the light from the outside helping give the water its beautiful green colour that is loved by tourists and locals alike.
Heading west, Marina di Pescoluse is a popular destination for holiday makers, thanks to its bright white sand and crystal blue sea. Dubbed as the Maldives of Italy, this breathtakingly beautiful destination is the ideal place to spend the day. Relax on the sunbeds or admire the different fish by snorkelling in clear waters.
If you fancy heading out for the day, Gallipoli is a vibrant city that’s under an hour drive away. People love its beautiful white stretches of sand just south of the town known as Baia Verde and the lively nightlife around here. Browse through the town’s lovely boutiques and look out for fascinating historical sites such as the ancient Church of Saint Agatha, that sits in the centre of the old town and Castello di Galliopli, the 11th century military fortress nestled in the port. If you would like to learn more about city’s rich history, make your way to its fascinating museum – Museo Civico Emanuele Barba. After a busy day shopping and site-seeing, relax by the harbour and watch the boats pass by.
Other wonderful places to visit include Otranto to the north, Santa Maria di Leuca at the southern most tip and the village of Specchia, known to be one of Italy’s most beautiful villages where you can dine in wonderful restaurants on the piazza or find some local specialities in the many pretty shops.
