Pool 10 m x 4 m is possible to install!The current layout for the villa is for five bedrooms, five bathrooms, two reception rooms and an open-plan kitchen. As the new owner, you could decide on the final floor layout. The two-bedroom suites to the rear could be self-contained units for holiday lettings or as accommodation for visiting family and friends. The attached floor plan shows an alternative layout with as nine bedrooms as possible if to run as an investment property for maximum lettings.In addition, a separate outbuilding of 18 sq m is possible to convert to an additional bedroom ensuite.The area is tranquil, with olive groves. On the quiet country lane, are no traffic and about ten properties. Next door neighbour is French, and further up the road is a well-known B & B.The country lane takes you quickly to the main road leading to the coastal motorway and Torre Guaceto Nature Reserve, the nearest beaches reached in 10 minutes. It is also close to Apani, with lovely beaches and a great beach club.The nearest town is San Vito dei Normanni, reached in 10 minutes. The city has two principal squares, many bars and cafes and restaurants. Here you will find several supermarkets like La Famila, Eurospin, Penny Market and Lidl.The best shopping is in nearby Brindisi, from where easy to take the train to Lecce - the Florence of the South - or Bari. Brindisi also has ferry traffic to Corfu in Greece and Albania.For a social life, just a few minutes to the village bar/cafe and a grocery store, this is the meeting point for all locals and ex-pats alike!Lifestyle And What Do Do In The AreaEveryone in the local residential area and the Serranova village know each other, and you can expect a visit from the local farmers bringing locally grown produce.The area has many small towns, restaurants, and bars.You and your guests may come to the villa and location for different reasons. You may cycle and walk, taking in all the Roman history from the area. Some come to take in the winter sun and chill out, others what to crash out at the beach or pool.If you go to the beach late at night, you might see the locals wading into the water to catch sea life. Watching them with little lamps strapped to their heads, their net on the back, olive oil in an old washing-up liquid bottle, and a spear is funny. They squirt a little drop of olive oil on the surface, and the squid goes crazy!!!The surrounding area has no buildings or more than two stores, so no large hotels, condos or apartment blocks.Torre Guaceto is a nature reserve of 22.000 sq. Km. A visitors centre on the main street tells you about the area. Serranova is the centre of the account.Torre Guaceto offers a beautiful light and noise-pollution-free environment. Still, within ten minutes, you can be in the lively seaside resorts of Santa Sabina and Specchiola. The beaches are ideal family places. With shallow coves and protected areas, visiting the beach is a pleasure. The beaches are deserted in the winter and very rarely busy at other times. July and August get busy with Italians from the North, but the whole experience of watching Italian families interact is excellent.The ancient olive tree forest surrounding Serranova is magnificent and fantastic to cycle or drive through. The trees roots come from the ground like twisted legs, and the branches resemble arms. The thick trunks are scored and have large knots almost look like faces; it reminds you of the trees in the Lord of the Rings.When you drive through the nature reserve close by, you are almost deafened by the noise of the crickets sitting in the trees.If your holiday is not just for the sun, you are interested in walking and cycling. Unlike other areas of Apulia, Serranova and Torre Guaceto is flat land. There is one main dual carriageway down the coast, and the rest of the roads have been unchanged for hundreds of years.The olives are handpicked from December to February to ensure they produce the best grade of extra virgin olive oil. The owners take the olives to the local Cooperative in Serranova to be pressed. You can visit the Cooperative and see if the olives have been processed.Holiday in southern Italy in April and May. The warm temperature and evening rain turn the hedgerows and fields around Torre Guaceto and serranova into a spectacular site of colours-wild flowers of all shapes and sizes. The beaches are small and exclusive, and no hotels or fast food places are in the area for 20 km Bliss!!!! Mobile food and drink units go to the beach in the summer, which is the best of both worlds.Apulia rises in altitude the further North you go. The area around Torre Guaceto, from the southern tip of the heel up to Serra Nova, is very flat. Once you get to Ostuni, the landscape changes.What More To See:The house has the advantage of being not far from central areas of world interest such as the mile-long caves of Castellana; the archaeological excavations of the Roman Egnatia by the Adriatic coastline; the Trullo houses of Alberobello- a 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 is a beautiful town for long walks, enjoying the fantastic atmosphere, bars, outside restaurants and great shops. Lecce can be reached in 40 minutes and has countless medical churches and a great richness of architecture. In town, the famous Roman amphibian theatre is also used for music and drama performances in the open during summer.Further to the South, inland Salento has several charming historical villages with ancient history. The townhouses often come with a garden and roof terrace. And its fascination to open the simple door from the street - and inside, almost like a little palace with a garden! The advantage of staying in a town is being able to socialise with Italian neighbours walking to the café, buying a newspaper and a cup of coffee in the morning, and having all the amenities within the reach day time and at nighttime.In Sternatina and Martigignano to the South of Lecce, the villagers still speak antique Greek.Maglie is like a mini Lecce with many fine buildings. Muro Leccese is more diminutive and represents a small town/village with a satisfactory architectural history. Cutrofiano is known for French holiday home ownership. Ruffano has many fine old buildings for sale, waiting to find new owners and to be restored. Surano has a small town centre with very excellent antique facilities for sale. Spongano, again is a small village surrounded by olive groves. Here you can see secluded, grand villas and country retreats owned by foreigners and families from North Italy who come to relax in rural Salento.The east coast of Salento is rougher than the southwest 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 beach life, pizzerias, restaurants and disco music in the summertime.Santa Catarina is also well known for its many fine villas in the area, some antique.The sea outside Porto Cesareo, further up the coast, is probably the most beautiful and fantastic sunset.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 about 15-20 minutes.More To See In Apulia:Bari, the commercial capital city with 250 000 inhabitants, offers the best shopping; a grand opera house called the Petruzzelli teatro, and 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, the mystical castle Frederic Ii built in the 13th 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 significant 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, especially socialising; the home is used for sleeping and breakfast, and the Italians go out for enjoyment and dining. There are so much you can experience, like early morning markets in small towns, music festivals, religious carnivals, beach life, historical tours in the main towns, cooking classes, learning Italian at language schools in Lecce, dining at the many country and seaside restaurants, and nightclubs at the beach clubs of Capitolo.SPORTS:As Apulia is a peninsula surrounded by 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 are available in Santa Sabina. Torre Guaceto nature reserve also extends to the sea, so the coastline presents a heaven of sea life, ideal for snorkelling.Golf has 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 doesnt drop much below 15c. Serra Nova has a microclimate.The temperature in Apulia is very temperate. May, June and July, Sept tend to be 25 to 30 March, April and October in the 20c. The summer months can get to 40c, ideal for those sun lovers.Winter temperatures; Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb. Range 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 snowfalls. The temperature can differ between these cities by 10c.Being south, Apulia has warmer weather than Northern Italy; even in the winter months of December to February, the average number of sun hours per day is four and 10-11 sun hours per day in June-August! This means you can enjoy a long season of nice weather in Apulia. When you plan to buy a holiday home in Apulia, think you will spend a lot more time outside than on the inside compared to at home. Therefore you will need plenty of terrace space, pergolas etc., at your Apulian property, and cooking facilities outdoors are convenient.The water temperature at the beginning of May is, on 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. Wherever you are in Apulia, you can reach the shores within 30 minutes.What 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 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 common means value for money at bargain prices for 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, for northern Italians, Apulia has become the most popular holiday destination for Italians. But rest assured, no tourist villages will ever be built because, in Apulia, the coastline is protected; people are against modern developments which do not fit into this historical landscape.
