VILLA ULIVO, or the Villa of Olive Trees, takes its name from its location, being nestled within nearly 2 acres of its own private olive groves, famous within this region of Italy.
Set back from a quiet road, behind a private gate and down its own private drive, it is located under 30minutes drive from the modern Brindisi airport, and an hour from Bari. Although the villa is believed to date back to the 1930's it has recently been completely remodelled, creating a wonderfully versatile, spacious, modern and stylish property.
With 4 double bedrooms and 2 shower-rooms, airconditioning throughout, it very comfortably sleep up to 8 adults. Although it has a modern, well appointed kitchen, it also has a generous lounge that opens out directly onto the 40 ft terrace overlooking the pool, and bbq - fantastic for al fresco dining in the summer!
There is also a large pagoda below the pool area where you can enjoy views across the land. A private massage under the pagoda can also be arranged at your convenience by the villas local visiting masseuse. (payable locally).
