Property description

This impressive masseria has been well maintained and is solid with traditional high ceilings and the mix of residential parts and for the former farming use. The accommodation of 12 spacious rooms in various sizes allows for a modern floor layout with a number of bedroom suites. In addition a 100 sq m annex building which could be used as secondary accommodation with equal sea views and surrounded by open fields and old stone walls.
Located off the Porto Cesareo lagoon, the shore is protected from the sea swell by the small islands in front of it.
With its several small marinas and islands, Porto Cesareo and its surroundings have over the years become a magnet for quality holidays and certainly a real jewel of Salento’s coast line and it is easily reachable from Brindisi’s International Airport less than one hour away.
While retaining its original feel and charm of a fishing community, this part of the world never stops to surprise yo with its many different attractions.Rarely, opportunities like this one come by on the open market. Porto Cesareo and the immediate area of the Salento region of Apulia are becoming world wide recognized for its natural beauty and turquoise color waters – “the Caribbean of Apulia” – as a beautiful quality, unique holiday destination.Porto Cesareo is one of top three locations on the Ionian coastline of Apulia’s.
In this sea side town of 9,000 inhabitants you find all amenities with amazing sunsets in the sea with the most beautiful turquoise color- the Caribbean waters of Apulia’s.
Lecce – “the Florence of the South” -40 minutes (43 km)
Gallipoli – attractive old town on the peninsula – 40 minutes (42 km)WHAT TO SEE:
The sea outside of Porto Cesareo further up the coast is probably the most beautiful and fantastic sunsets.
A few minutes from Porto Cesareo is Santa Catarina, the St Tropez of Apulia’s, well known also for its many fine villas in the area, some antique.
A little further south of Santa Caterina is the idyllic Santa Maria al Bagno with its sandy beach and many bars and restaurants at the piazza.
Gallipoli is like Polignano a Mare on the Adriatic Sea a town on a peninsular surrounded by water. It is a beautiful walk along the sea front and the old town is full of architectural wonders.

The cost from Santa Maria di Leuca to Gallipoli has many fine sandy beaches. The villages are perhaps not the prettiest but room for the beach life, pizzerias, restaurants and disco music summer time.
Inland SALENTO have a number of historical charming villages with ancient history. The advantage to stay in a village is to be able to socialize with Italian neighbours, to walk to the cafe and buy a newspaper and a cup of coffee in the morning and having all amenities within reach daytime and nighttime. The townhouses often come with a garden and roof terrace. and its fascination 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, antique Greek is still spoken by the villagers.
Maglie is like a mini Lecce and with many fine buildings. Muro Leccese is smaller and also represent a small town/village with a fine architectural history. Cutrofiano 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 center with very nice antique buildings for sale. Spongano again is a small village surrounded by olive groves. Here you can see secluded great 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 south west and for people who enjoy the sea and fishing. 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 spa resort, very popular with a beautiful setting and bay.

By air there is a choice of two international airports, served by Ryanair, Easyjet , BA and others, Approximately 50 minutes to Brindisi and to Bari in the north, approximately two hours..

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 of Bari 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. 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 in Lecce, dining at the many country and sea side restaurants, night clubbing at the beach clubs of Capitolo.

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, kitesurfing 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. Wherever 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 coastline is protected and people are against 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.

Based on our 30 year experience in the property markets, 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 advise 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.
