AN OUTSTANDING LARGE TRULLI HOUSE SET IN MAGNIFICENT ROLLING PRIVATE GROUNDS

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Martina Franca - Casa Giancone

4 bedroom house with a fabulous roof terrace and private large swimming pool

The house is one of the more up-market houses in Puglia offering spacious and very well appointed accommodation, tastefully combining the old with the new, with a fabulous large mosaic effect swimming pool set within large and private gardens, a variety of trees and plants abound the natural landscape surrounding the house. It has wrought iron double gates that open on to a long and sweeping driveway that takes you up to the hidden house.

A strong feature of the house is the numerous places where one can chill out either in the sun or in the cool of shaded areas. The sumptuous size of the house and the surrounding grounds offer privacy and a variety of different scenic views.

Terraces to the rear and front of the house provide relaxing and/or eating areas surrounded by trees and sweeping grounds that add a certain ambience. The front patio has a large pergola and brick chimney barbecue. The rear terrace joins the kitchen and has a lovely roof of vines and capers that provide shade.

The recently built roof terrace adds an extra dimension to the house and provides an area for relaxing and sun bathing, along with majestic panoramic views across the countryside - watching the beautiful sun sets from here is an absolute must.

The property is in part trullo with four old trulli cones dating back to the 18th century, with house extension and comprises 3 double bedrooms (master en-suite inc), large lounge, an open-plan dining room and a well equipped open-plan kitchen. The family bathroom has a lovely large shower.

A separate fully studio apartment is adjacent to the property and this contains a double bedroom/lounge and a separate bathroom with large shower.

The house is located just a 5 minutes drive from the historic town of Martina Franca, 15 minutes from Ceglie Messipica, and 20 minutes from the white city on the hill Ostuni – all containing rustic buildings, restaurants and a way of life reminiscent of a bygone age.

Rocky or sandy beautiful beaches abound along the Puglian coastlines where the waters of the Adriatic and Ionic seas are clear and clean. It is a well known fact that the Italians living in the north of the country will come down to Puglia in the summer for the beaches.

Just 5 hours drive away is the fabulous Amalfi Coast where Sorrento, Naples and Pompeii can be found, also the islands of Capri and Ischia are truly beautiful and reside in the bay of Naple

Pulia / Molise area: Casa Giancone can be found in an exclusive part of Puglia, just a 5 minute drive from historic Martina Franca and you will find unspoiled beaches and trullis abound everywhere within a 20 minutes drive.

This area is totally untouched by commercialism and many places still stand in times of old where old customs still flourish. Beautiful traditional Italian towns and cities with stunning architecture, fine wines and delicious cuisine, surrounded by lush countryside, limestone hills and exquisite sandy beaches abound.

Puglia is a place where the weather is glorious and not a hint of tourism is evident anywhere in this beautiful and charming part of old style Italy where time has stood still.

The region for the most part is relatively flat and it is an ideal place for cycling. Its fertile land allows the region to produce more wine than any other region in Italy and it is among Italy's main olive oil producers

Martina Franca area: Martina Franca is an elegant town with wonderful Baroque architecture and very good shopping, and lies within the enchanting scenery of the Valle d'Itria, 431 metres above sea level, mid-way between the Ionian Sea and the Adriatic. Historically speaking it goes back to the tenth century, but the town prominently arose around 1310, founded by the Prince of Taranto, Philippe I of Anjou.

Every corner offers memories of a past which is not only history, but also art, folklore and traditions handed town with love. As soon as you enter the old town centre you are enveloped in an unreal, magic atmosphere: the streets, lanes, flights of rough stairs, even the windows take us back to a moment that is far back in time.

Nearby are Alberobello (the Capital of the Trullo a Unesco world heritage site), Cisternino (views over the Valle D'Itria), Locorotondo (famous for its white wine, visit the Cantina Sociale), Ostuni (the 'White City') and Lecce (Florence of the South).

Almalfi Coust: Just 5 hours drive the outstanding Amalfi Coast provides you with magical coastal routes and sights. Sorrento is an upmarket and totally fabulous place to visit, shop and eat in. The Bay of Naples offers the stunning town of Napoli (Naples) and from its harbours you can traverse the bay and call in on the magical Island of Ischia where volcano spa baths abound, natural English Gardens can be found, and serene villages offer bygone food.

The Island of Capri offers many attractions and is steeped in colonial history.

Near Naopoli you can catch the train to see the amazing town of Pompeii with its recovered buildings and roads - you walk through preserved roads and houses that take your breath away.

About Paul Mouzer

I am a professional disability consultant providing services on a national basis for private companies and public organisations.

I have a beautiful and delightful wife Mandy and 3 grown up gorgeous but naughty chldren.

We live in a 16th century country house in the Vale of Evesham.

Paul Mouzer purchased this house in 2006

Why Paul Mouzer chose Martina Franca

Casa Giancone was purchased with a view to us spending much of our time over there. Unfortunately my buisness commitments does not allow me to do this, so it was decided that we would let the house out as it was such a shame that it was not being lived in.

Many guests have complimented on how the house feels like a home and not a soulless building.

We bought the house because its character and private setting within a lovely part of Puglia was just so enchanting.

Puglia offers amazing simple and uncommercialised delights and has warm and friendly locals who are always welcoming and helpful.

What makes this house unique

The house enables a large number of people who stay there to enjoy different areas in which to escape to and have complete porivacyand quiet.. A good example is sitting right at the back of the rolling land and not being able to see the house - ideal for relaxation and perhaps painting etc.

The recently refurbished and renovated roof terrace offers stunning views of the vista and the sunsets are a joy to behold whilst sipping the local prosecco.

The swimming pool is luxurious in its size and location which is totally private and nestling on the brow of a slight incline - the swallows swooping down around 5pm are magical to watch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your villa was a delight! The private grounds had so many different places to sit in which was heavenly. We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets from the roof terrace. We were very happy with everything especially the woodburning stove which kept us lovely and warm in the nippy evenings. So thank you for your lovely place.

Fabulous house! Fantastic location!

  • 5 out of 5
Casa Giancone is definitely one of these rare holiday places where one truly feels on holiday, but at a luxury home from home at the same time. Words really doesn't do this place justice! Fantastic location; this is truly an oustanding house with high class amenities in an idyllic setting.

Casa Giancone is a great base for sightseeing as it is within easy reach of many places to see in the Puglia region (and beyond!). During our stay we were able to visit many places places such as Alberobello, Matera. Ostuni, Legge, Gallipoli. One will never run out of places to visit during a holiday there.

Equally as impressive, is that there is plenty of opportunity to have lazy days at Casa Giancone, what with the swimming pool, fantastic roof terrace, the various different outdoor locations that have tables for meals at different times of the day. This truly is a place that one will want to go again and again!

I wholeheartedly echo an earlier comment which states that "this is the kind of magical place which makes you feel guilty for leaving when going out to explore, so make sure you spend at least half a day at Casa Giancone each day, or go out for a whole day's trip so that you spend the next day pleasantly recovering and chilling out!"

Fabulous place and location!

Luxury and magical house

  • 5 out of 5
Luxury and "off the beaten track", usually the two do not go together, but this one does!
The owners have thought of everything they could think of for their customers, down to umbrellas for rain, equipment for babies, young children, teenagers and adults, books to show Italy in English, equipment for playing in the swimming pool, to having lovely food supplies with a bottle of wine on arrival.
The photos although wonderful do not quite show the expanse of grounds or the size of the pine cones or the rich range of fruit or flowers, or the generous size of the sitting room area which incorporates the wood burning stove and the TV area.
There is a fusion of the old character of the trulli part of the house and the open light modern clean space required to accommodate 8 people seated in the lounge and again in the kitchen dining area,
There is something for everyone and visitors can separate out to do their own activities without disturbing others while on the property, such as the numerous eating areas within the grounds of the property with ample shade in most spots for those who find the sun too hot.
This is the kind of magical place which makes you feel guilty for leaving when going out to explore, so make sure you spend at least half a day at Casa Giancone each day, or go out for a whole day's trip so that you spend the next day pleasantly recovering and chilling out! Needless to say, I would and have recommended this property rental and service to friends and relatives.

Reunion

  • 5 out of 5
First time to Italy, so not sure what to expect. WOW!! Casa Giancone ticked all the boxes in the right places. Quiet, comfortable and very peaceful. We were with six old school friends so lots of catch up time sitting round the pool which is wonderful, or sitting up on the roof terrace watching the sun go down, what a wonderful view. Fantastic photo opportunity.
It has all the comforts of home, the owners have clearly thought about the sort people who would be holidaying. Local supermarket is only minutes away and stocks all you need. Sightseeing, if that your fix, there are Towns/Villages all within driving distance, yes you need a car, easy booked when holiday was booked and collected on arrival. Considering a return visit, maybe this year.

Stunning property, magnificent location

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at Casa Giancone was absolutely fantastic. The whole property is quite simply stunning, the photographs really do not do it justice. The main house is very large, very bright, very tastefully decorated with excellent facilities. There is a separate studio which again is first class. The large pool, beautifully landscaped grounds and many terrace areas are particularly impressive and it really is the ideal place to relax and unwind. In fact the property is so large and impressive you really do not need to leave it at all during your stay! The property also feels very private and very secure. The surrounding area is beautiful and if you do fancy seeing the local sights or a great meal then nearby town of Martina Franca is a must see. I would highly recommend Casa Giancone and we are planning to visit again this year!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the fabulous feedback - of interest is such is the appreciation of the house and its facilities that people were well happy just to stay around the house, the swimming pool and the roof terrace.

The house offers plenty of space internally and externally and it offers a great place for a group of adults and children to have a wonderful stay.

Casa Giancone Martina Franca

  • 4 out of 5
Casa Giancone is not just a holiday home, it’s a home from home. Lovingly, tastefully, sensitively, furnished and equipped to a very high standard. Nestled in beautiful grounds, surrounded by beautiful countryside, the house works its magic. Its ambience lends itself to any type of holiday; Romantic, Respite/recharge, Groups of family/friends.
Being able to swim and relax by the fabulous pool, watch the sun go down from the roof terrace, breakfast in the garden, dine and wine in the large barbeque area gave me an amazing, not to be forgotten holiday experience. I will return! Often! Molte Grazie!

Owner's Response: It is always pleasing to receive such comnplimentary reviews. We particularly note that our lovely house felt like a home and that is really important to us - we have spent time and money to create a house that provides the right ambience and makes our guests feel special.

The swimming pool is an absolute delight and the recently refurbished roof terrace has added another dimension to the house.

Casa Giancone can be found in an exclusive part of Puglia, just a 5 minute drive from historic Martina Franca and you will find unspoiled beaches and trullis abound everywhere within a 20 minutes drive.

This area is totally untouched by commercialism and many places still stand in times of old where old customs still flourish. Beautiful traditional Italian towns and cities with stunning architecture, fine wines and delicious cuisine, surrounded by lush countryside, limestone hills and exquisite sandy beaches abound.

Puglia is a place where the weather is glorious and not a hint of tourism is evident anywhere in this beautiful and charming part of old style Italy where time has stood still.

The region for the most part is relatively flat and it is an ideal place for cycling. The climate is hot and dry, which is typical of Mediterranean weather. Its fertile land allows the region to produce more wine than any other region in Italy and it is among Italy's main olive oil producers. With nearly three quarters of the region surrounded by water, Puglia is an excellent place for tourist to sunbathe on the beautiful sandy beaches. It also allows Puglia to rank as one of the highest regions in Italy for total fish harvest.
