About the property

Located in the countryside, with sea views near the historic town of Carovigno

Villa Marina is a modern designed villa located in the Northern area of Salento, in a panoramic and sea view position.

There is also a covered veranda with stone round table with seating. A Pizza oven, and sink with hot and cold water, is ideal for those wanting to perfect the art of pizza making. Ideal for children, and adults wanting to design their own pizza.

 The spacious interiors are characterized by a barrel vaulted ceiling, stone walls typical of Apulia, bright windows and modern/minimal designed furniture.

The main house has a bright dining room with an American style kitchen, electric hob, and oven, dishwasher and overlooking the veranda, a living area with TV corner and four bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom, with shower, bidet and toilet.

The two bedrooms at either end of the property are equipped with their own private entrance, kitchen corner and bathroom/shower.

The first one has a double bed, the second one has two French beds (140 cm wide). The villa is spacious, and 4 bedrooms have views of the pool and gardens.

The location of Villa Marina allows easy access to the many sandy beaches of the Adriatic coast are only 3 km away is Pantaganianni and is easily reached by bike.

Note the proximity to the nature reserve of Torre Guaceto, a must for nature lovers with many services to explore its oasis. The nearest sea center (Lido Specchiolla) is only 3 km away, while the city center of reference is Carovigno, at 6 km.

This is truly a amazing villa, sea views, plenty of outdoor space, and a large swimming pool. Internally the villa is designed well, with the vaulted ceilings helping to keep the villa warm in summer.

Torre Guaceto Nature Reserve blissfully free from development, with its rugged shores is a protected area, and allows its visitors to enjoy and escape from the over developed beach resorts. There are plenty of opportunities to observe plant and animal species usually scarce in this part of the world.

A mini shuttle service runs from the car parks, but to find your spot on the beach, there may be some walking involved.

The sea is clear, clean and warm. There is a visitor centre 3km inland at Serranova which organises nature walks, cycle trekking. There are also guided snorkelling trips. Torre Guaceto is also one of Puglia's top locations for kite surfing.

There are water parks, and a zoo in Fasano. Plenty to do if you have young children.

Ostuni boasts many restaurants with traditional Pugliese cuisine, with roast and grilled meat and tasty tangy pasta dishes to suit every pallate.

Ostuni has also one of the oldest Franciscan convents dating back to 1304.

The Cathedral is located on the highest point of the city, which was built between 1435 and 1495, and has a beautiful Gothic facade.

Far away you will see the white town perched on a hill, crowned by the cathedral with its colorful dome. The town of Ostuni is surrounded by a medieval fortress wall, and as you meander through the streets, you may stumble upon hidden cafe bars and restaraunts. Definitely worth visiting at night, as there is a buzz of excitement, and people sipping coffee and drinking Spritz - it definitely has a cosmopolitan feel.

Car: necessary
Other Activities:

Brindisi known as the gateway to the East, Brindisi has flourished for thousands of years a s the most eastern port of the Italian Peninsular. This city marked the end of the Via Appia in Roman times, and the columns that signaled its entrance can still be seen at the top of a grand flight of stone steps overlooking the port. Here was the setting for the epic sea battle between Caesar and Pomey and the meeting place for Mark Anthony & Octavius when they carved up the empire. The nicest areas are along the waterfront of the old town, where a long row of stylish bars and restaurants line the promenade.

There is also an attractive pedestrian shopping area and a number of interesting sites such as the Castle of Federico 11, the Aragonese Castle and the 12th century Romanesque Cathedral.

Alberobello has been made a UNESCO World Heritage site for its unusual districts of trulli, and conical-roofed houses which are all painted white, built from local limestone, with dry-stone walls. They are fairytale like huts built in the 14th Century. There are a good number of restaurants, but to enjoy the local cuisine, look for something which is away from the tourist traps.

 Lecce is a Baroque City, it has a historic centre full of cherubs, and baroque masterpeices. Sometimes described as the ‘Florence of the South’ Lecce’s history goes back a long way - you can still see the ruins of a Roman Threatre and Amphitheatre. Things to see in Lecce – (Centro Storico) which you can spend a day or two exploring picturesque little lanes. The Basilica di Santa Croce has a fantastical façade, with ornamental strange beasts and allegories. The town has two main focal points: Piazza Sant’Oronzo and Piazza del Duomo. There is also a little tourist ‘train’ which stops at various points of interest. It’s worth visiting the Roman theatre and its little museum in the centre of Lecce (Museo Teatro Romano).

 Ostuni is one of the most stunning cities in southern Italy famous for the dazzling effect of its whitewashed houses. In the Church of San Vito Martire there are the remains of a young woman now named ‘Delia’. The young 20 year old pregnant woman had been buried in a hole in a grotto 25,000 years ago. Ostuni boasts many restaurants with traditional Pugliese cuisine, with roast and grilled meat and tasty tangy pasta dishes to suit every palate. Ostuni has also one of the oldest Franciscan convents dating back to 1304.

Locorotondo has a labyrinth of streets and

alleyways, in which to meander and explore. This City is known for its wines

and for its circular structure. which is now a historical centre, from which

derives its name, which means 'Round Place'. It is deep in the Itria Valley

historical centre. Zoosafari Fasonolandia is an animal attraction and theme

park in Fasano. The park includes a drive through safari park in the visitor's

own vehicle as well as a walk around animal area, animal shows and several

rides. From the centre of Locorotondo the Zoo is only 15 minutes’ drive,

approximately 10.6km 

Castellana Grotte

is a little country town famous for its caves or ‘grotte’ after which the town

is named. As the caves are on the edge of town, in high season Castellana is

not packed with day trippers. The town of Castellana stands on a hilltop

overlooking sweeping plains and vineyards. Its oldest street was builet during

the 17th Dentury so you’ll be able to stroll past the ornately frescoed Palazzo

Longo and enjoy the fascinating little shops and bustling restaurants. Anciient

churches, picture postcard piazzas and clock towers add to the charm. The caves

are open all year round and offer an interesting day out for all ages,

especially if the weather is less than perfect. One of the largest cave

complexes in Europe, it contains a fascinating variety of rock formations,

culminating in the breathtaking ‘Grotta Bianca’ or ‘White Cave’. Entrance is

with a tour guide only and visits last around 2 hours. 

Savelletri has an

18 hole golf course and is rated amongst the best in Italy. San Domenico 18

hole championship club on the crystalline Adriatic Sea has a combination of

good golf, good weather and good food. The myriad bunkers and fierce rough

characterise this championship layout.

 Acaya Gold

and country Club is near Lecce, part of the Hilton resort and home to a

Costantino Rocca Academy, is perhaps the most welcoming of the five Puglia

options, with open fairways and receptive greens. Good for golfers with a

moderate ability.

through an ancient olive grove. Riva dei Tessali Resort - on the coast of

Taranto with 18-holes. The fairways are carved through dense pine forests,

whilst there are no sea views

 

Carovigno is a small unspoilt part of Puglia, on the outskirts the town is surrounded by olive groves, and is only a short distance from the Adriatic Coast. The centre has many fantastic bars and restaurants, and boasts a Michelin Star Restaurant.

Well worth a visit is the Santuario della Madonna del Belvedere, which is a sanctuary. Please note suitable clothing is required to enter the church, as you will not be permitted to enter if your shoulders are not covered and you are wearing beach wear.

Beaches are clean with a Nature reserve Torre Guaceto blissfully free from development, with its rugged shores is a protected area, and allows its visitors to enjoy and escape from the over developed beach resorts.
