Welcome to this charming cottage located just 2 km from the town of San Vito dei Normanny. Boasting two bedrooms and a lovely garden, the driveway is adorned with oak trees, creating a picturesque approach. The rear of the house features a pizza & bread oven and offers an ideal space for a future pool and a pergola, perfect for outdoor gatherings.
The accommodation comprises two double bedrooms, one bathroom, a living room and a kitchen.
The cottage was built in 1972.

Technical:
The property has an electric meter, and the electricity can be reconnected.
There is a water cistern. Drilling for water is recommended for a buyer planning for a swimming pool.
The building has an old septic tank. A new modern Imhoff-type system is recommended.

LOCATION:
It is two km southwest of San Vito dei Normanni, about 5 minutes to the nearest supermarket, 20 minutes from the Adriatic Sea, and 30 km to Brindisi International Airport.
Good access to the main roads. The property is situated along a country lane surrounded by an open landscape with olive groves and vegetable gardens and offers a high degree of privacy and safety. The area is absolute countryside yet so close to town. Several English-speaking ex-pats live in the famous San Vito area, so social life with locals and ex-pats is possible,

WHAT TO SEE:
From the villa, the beaches of the Adriatic Sea can be easily reached in approximately 15-20 minutes. Torre Santa Sabina and Specchiolla are two seaside places with many beaches, restaurants and cafes.
In 20 minutes, the beautiful nature reserve Torre Guaceto by the sea can be reached. It offers an attractive escape from beach resorts as you find unspoiled beaches and no cars allowed here. The parking is at the visitor’s centre, and there are organized nature walks, cycle trekking and snorkelling trips.

The villa has the advantage of being not far from areas of world interest such as the mile-long, amazing caves of Castellana; the archaeological excavations of the Roman Egnatia by the Adriatic coastline; the Trulli 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 can be reached in 45 minutes and has countless medical churches and a great richness of architecture. The famous Roman amphibian theatre is also in town, used for music and drama performances in the open during the summer season. Lecce is a beautiful town for long walks, enjoying the fantastic atmosphere, bars, outside restaurants and great shops.

Further to the South, inland Salento has several charming historical villages with ancient history. The advantage of staying in a town is socialising with Italian neighbours, walking to the café, buying a newspaper and a cup of coffee in the morning, and having all amenities within reach during the day and night. The townhouses often come with a garden and roof terrace, and it’s fascinating to open the simple door from the street – and inside, almost like a little palace with a garden!
In Sternatina and Martignano to the south of Lecce, the villagers still speak ancient Greek.
Maglie is like a mini Lecce and has many fine buildings. Muro Leccese is more diminutive and represents a small town/village with a fine architectural history. Cutrofiano is popular 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 nice antique buildings for sale. Spongan, once 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. It is 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 popular spa resort 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 have room for beach life, pizzerias, restaurants, and disco music in the summertime.
Santa Catarina is well known also 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 quickly reach Bari in the North by car on the motorway in approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes and nearby Brindisi in the South in about 30 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 socializing; the home is used for sleeping and breakfasts, and the Italians go out for enjoyment and dining. You can experience so much, 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 night clubs 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. 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:
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-June to August it is 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, you will spend a lot more time outside than inside compared to at home. Therefore, at your Apulian property, you will need plenty of terrace space, pergolas, etc., and cooking facilities outside 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 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 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 Apuli, a standard means of 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 from northern Italians. Pulia 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. Therefore, prices are bound to rise with increased demand for a fixed and limited number of properties,
