Nestled a short distance from Castellana Grotte, in the heart of the Puglia countryside. This small town is primarily known for its caves; a key attraction in southern Italy’s natural heritage, set at the mouth of the Itria Valley, close to charming villages such as Alberello, Cisternino and Polignano a Mare. The caves themselves began to form about ninety million years ago. Sixty meters deep, the caves are a mysterious underworld of fossils, stalactites and stalagmites and canyons.
This sumptuous home is in the “heel” of Italy, in the very heart of Puglia with its wonderful soft light and far-reaching horizons; with the Ionian Sea on one side and the Adriatic on the other, there are miles upon miles of golden beaches. The Valle d’Itria is known as being one of the most beautiful areas of Puglia where the cities of Bari and Brindisi can easily be reached.
The region is known for its olive oil production, as evidenced by the surrounding stretches of olive groves as well as its distinctive white-washed hill towns, centuries-old farmland and hundreds of kilometres of Mediterranean coastline.
The capital Bari is a vibrant port and university town, whilst Lecce is the ‘Florence of the south’ - known for its baroque architecture and “Trulli” - stone huts with cone-shaped roofs that were originally homes; today they can be visited in their preserved form, and provide something of a fairy tale-esque experience for younger members of the group!
