Description from manager

Description

Villa Puglia is a large historic sea view villa in a in a lush Mediterranean garden only 50 m from the sea. Located on the Adriatic coast in the south of Italy (the heel), it is a delightful and romantic setting, surrounded by gardens planted with unusual and exotic plants, and with gorgeous views over the surrounding pine trees and palms down to the blue water.

The villa is one of those exceptional sites where Italian civilization comes alive each summer. This sumptuous dwelling (500 sqm living space and 1 ha garden), summer residence to Dukes since the 19th century, is still owned by a descendent, who has preserved its authentic atmosphere. The villa overlooks the Adriatic Sea: its private alley lined with century old trees leads down to the small port of Tricase with its multi-colored fishing boats and inviting to a swim in his clear waters.

Walk to the small village! At Tricase porto (approx. 150 m distant) you will find a grocery shop, three restaurants, two pizzerias

Walk to the small village! At Tricase porto (approx. 150 m distant) you will find a grocery shop, three restaurants, two pizzerias and two bars, and the small harbor has a very small beach too. In the larger village Tricase (3 km) there is a bank, post office, pharmacy and a supermarket.

Puglia, the "heel" of the boot of Italy, has only recently gained popularity as a holiday destination as travelers become aware of the natural beauty of its landscapes and the wealth of fascinating towns with Greek, Norman and Caracen-influenced architecture, and the magnificent Baroque cathedrals in Lecce and other nearby towns. With stunning landscapes of ancient olive trees and two coastlines of pristine beaches, Puglia offers magical scenery, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, unique "trulli" architecture, caves, castles, great shopping and some of the best food and wine in Italy. Puglia is the largest producer of oilive oil in Italy and has more than 50 million olive trees, including some that are a thousand years old.

From Tricase Porto you can roam throughout Salento and can make wonderful excursions to some of Puglia's most memorable locales: visit the east coast of Salento with its magnificent cliffs hovering over its turquoise sea with grottos and creeks, and the west coast offers 50 kilometers of white sand beachs from Santa Maria di Leuca to Gallipoli; the city of Lecce, pearl of Italian baroque; the fortified ports of Otrante and Gallipoli; Santa Maria di Leuca, finibus terrae, followed by a swim in the crystal blue sea. A bit further, you can visit the legendary towns of Taranto with its Hellenistic museum, Alberobello, home of many ancient Trulli, the sassi of Matera, the sublime Castel del Monte, the Normand churches of Bari, Trani, Barletta and Ruvo. Visit the amazing seaside town of Ostuni and the spectacular Torre Guaceto. Artisanal gelato is always around the corner and you are never more than a few minutes from the sparkling sea. The cuisine of Puglia features fresh seafood, and its wines are renowned, particularly the reds from Salento and the refreshing whites from Locorotondo and Gravina. All around there are many lovely restaurants with typical "cucina salentina" as well as artcraft shops of ceramics and fabrics. At the end of the day, come home to your villa to relax over a glass of wine, overlooking the garden, and the sea all around you.

A direct train connects Rome to Lecce (6 hours), from Lecce to Tricase Porto there is another train connection (1.5 hours). The villa is 3 km distant from Tricase Porto. A car is recommanded in this region.
