Property description

A short drive south from one of the top spots in Apulia- famous OSTUNI- takes you to this sought-after area, which offers sea view on sloping grounds and the beaches are reached in about 15 minutes.
This cottage has been used for simple summer living and now looking for its new owner and needs lots of TLC; as the location is five star, the building could be modernized for about 45,000 euro, making two double bedrooms, 2 bathroom and a south facing pergola. A pool in the ground is not possible as the area is protected but you could have an above ground pool installed, or why not a Jacuzzi on the flat roof! The land is simply beautiful with its mature olive trees and original stone walls. The country lane has very limited traffic and the cottage is towards the end of a cul-de sac. Walking on the lanes in this area is delightful as tranquil and beautiful with an attractive variation of properties.
In short, this is for you who wants an affordable holiday home and as easy to let, would give rental income.
CasaPuglia offers professional project management and fixed price builders contract.WHAT TO SEE AND DO:
The property is conveniently located between Ostuni (4,5 km) and Carovigno (5 km).
Both are wonderful local towns with fabulous restaurants perfect for year round living .
.
The nearest beaches are at Torre Santa Sabina, one of the most attractive sea side villages on this coast line.Further to the south is the beautiful nature reserve TORRE GUACETO by the sea. It offers an attractive escape from beach resorts as here you find unspoiled beaches and no cars allowed. The parking is at the visitor’s center and there are organised nature walks, cycle trekking and snorkeling trips.The cottage has 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 beautiful white town of OSTUNI, located on top of a hill with fantastic sea views; 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 15 -20 minutes and has countless medical churches and a great richness of architecture. In town there is also the famous Roman amphibian theatre 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.

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 1 hour 15 minutes and nearby Brindisi in the south in approximately 30 minutes.

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 centre 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 Traini, 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 wildlife Reserve and offers hiking and scenic trips around the peninsula. From here there are daily boat trips to the small Tremiti islands.

LIFESTYLE AND CULTURE:
The Italian lifestyle means many things but especially socialising; the home is used for sleeping and breakfasts, the Italians go out for enjoyments and dining. There are so much you can experience, like early morning markets in the small towns. music festivals, religious carnivals, the beach life, historical tours in the main towns, cooking classes, learning a bit Italian at language schools in Lecce, dining at the many country and sea side restaurants, night clubbing at the beach clubs of Capitolo.

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. Scuba diving and fishing is available in Santa Sabina. Torre Guaceto nature reserve also extends out to sea so the coastline presents a heaven of sea life, ideal for snorkeling.
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. Squash clubs are located in Bari, Bitonto and other places.

THE WEATHER:
Southern Italy is warm and friendly and the temperature in Serra Nova is temperate all year round. Even in the cold of January it doesn’t drop much below 15c. Serra Nova has a micro climate
The temperature in Apulia is very temperate. The summer months can get to 40c ideal for those sun lovers. May, June and July, Sept tend to be 25 to 30c. March, April and October in the 20c.

Winter temperatures; Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb. ranges from 10c to 25c, it depends on the sun. We have had weeks of endless sunshine during the “Winter”. Places like Ostuni, Fasano and Cisternino are very hilly and can even have occasional snow falls. The temperature can differ between these cities by 10c.

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. When you plan to buy a holiday home in Apulia think of that you will spend a lot more time outside than in the inside compared to at home. Therefore you will need plenty of terrace space, pergolas etc at your Apulian property and also cooking facilities outside is very practical.

The water temperature in beginning of May is in average 19 degrees, up to 27 degrees in August/September and 19 degrees in November. This means you family will spend time at the beach. Where ever you are in Apulia you can reach the beaches within 30 minutes

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 in value because of the increased demand. Also from north Italians as Apulia has become the most popular holiday destination for Italians. But rest assure, no tourist villages will ever be built because in Apulia the coastline is protected and people are against modern developments which do not fit into this historical landscape. Therefore, with increased demand for a fixed and limited number of properties prices are bound to rise.
