The distance to the nearest town is 5 km and this is the small and sweet town of Locorotondo, a true gem with small cobbled streets, many fine restaurants and shops. Locorotondo is famous for its round historical old town, and the musical festival in August and its outstanding Christmas decorations. With Cisternino at 7 km, the two towns are the prettiest in Apulia.
The drive to the beaches on the Adriatic coast is 25 minutes with the nearby Torre Canne and Savelletri, a small pleasant fishing village, with excellent bars and restaurants
The coast from Savelletri has very few houses, natural rocky beaches with stretches of sand beaches, At Forcatella there are a couple of small informal restaurants for simple but delicious sea food dishes. The road continues to Torre Cane, also a popular seaside village..
The property has the advantage of being centrally located between areas of interest such as the mile long caves of Castellana; the archaeological excavations of the Roman Egnatia by the Adriatic coast line; the Trullo houses of Alberobello- an UNESCO world heritage site: the medieval town of Oria; the wealthy baroque town of Martina Franca; 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; the famous baroque city of Lecce which is called the Florence of the south.

By air there is a choice of two international airports, served by Ryanair, Easyjet , BA and others, Bari in the north ( 92 km, ca 65 minutes by car) and Brindisi in the south 50km – circa 50 minutes. Both cities have ferry traffic to Greece, Albania and Croatia so it’s possible to make weekend trips across the Adriatic Sea.

BARI being the Commercial capital city with 250 000 inhabitants’ offers the best shopping, a grand opera house, called the Petruzzelli teatro; 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 TRANI, a sophisticated town with a beautiful half moon bay & marina. Continue north to CASTEL DEL MONTE, which is the mystical castle built by Frederic II in the 14th Century.
Within a 2,5 hour drive to the north lies GARGANO, the peninsula called the spur of the Italian boot. Gargano forms a large nature and wild life Reserve and offers hiking and scenic trips around the peninsula. From here there are daily boat trips to the small TREMITI ISLANDS.

The Italian lifestyle means many things but especially socializing; the home is used for sleeping and breakfasts, the Italians go out for enjoyments and dining. Based in the Cisternino area there are so much you can experience, like early morning markets in the small towns. music festivals, religious carnivals, the beach life, historical tours in the main towns, cooking classes, learning a bit Italian at language schools, dining at the many country and sea side restaurants, night clubbing at the beach clubs of Capitolo and Torre canne.

As Apulia is a peninsula and surrounded by the 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 is available with 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.

Being south, Apulia has warmer weather than Northern Italy and even in the “winter months” of December to February the average number of sun hours per day is 4 and in June-August 10-11 sun hours per day! This means you can enjoy a long season of nice weather in Apulia. When you plan to buy a holiday home in Apulia think of that you will spend a lot more time outside than in the inside compared to at home. Therefore you will need plenty of terrace space, pergolas etc. at your Apulian property and also cooking facilities outside is very practical.
The water temperature in beginning of May is in 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. Where ever you are in Apulia you can reach the beaches within 30 minutes!

Apulia has until recently been called the hidden treasure of Italy, unknown to most tourists who come & stay in Rome, Florence, Venice and at 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 low means value for money at bargain prices for the 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 from north Italians as Apulia has become the most popular holiday destination for Italians. But rest assure, no tourist villages will ever be built because in Apulia the cost line is protected and people are not in favour of modern developments which do not fit into this historical landscape. Therefore, with increased demand for a fixed and limited number of properties prices are bound to rise

Firstly we are an English speaking agency based in the middle of Apulia with local experience and can guide you to get the right property at the right price for you.
Secondly we have personally inspected every property that we recommend to buy and do not list hundreds of properties but a smaller selection of properties which we believe offer good value to the buyer. In Apulia many properties are offered at unrealistic prices but we say no to sellers who want us to list properties for sale at silly prices.
We have many years of international property experience, including 10 years in London, and see investments in Apulia through an international perspective. We have been active in several EU property markets and specialize in property management to ensure well maintained property for growth in property value.
We have a comprehensive range of local services:
– acting for the buyer – and not for the seller – by searching the market for the right property, negotiate the price and give advice through the buying process leading to completion of the purchase
– property management; we look after your property when you are away and ensure it is in perfect condition when you arrive. We will prepare a maintenance plan for annual maintenance and repairs of you property, which is essential to maintain and increase the property’s value
– project management; we can act as your local representative and manage any renovation or refurbishment. We will also advise on any value added measures which could further enhance the capital growth of your property.
– lettings- we can assist you in the letting of you property and check in your tenants, deposit taking, checking out & inventory control.
