WHAT TO SEE:
From the property, the beaches of the Adriatic Sea can be easily reached in approximately 20-25 minutes. Costa Merlata is nearest and Torre Santa Sabina, a little bit further south, is one of the loveliest seaside villages. On the coastline are several seaside places with many beaches, restaurants and cafés. A further 10 minutes to the south is the beautiful nature reserve TORRE GUACETO by the sea. It offers an attractive escape from beach resorts as you find unspoilt beaches and no cars are allowed here. The parking is at the visitor’s centre, and there are organised nature walks, cycle trekking and snorkelling trips.

The proeprty has the advantage of being so close to main areas of world interest – the beautiful Ostuni, the “white city” (8 km- 10 min); to the charming Cisternino; to other sites like the fantastic mile-long caves of CASTELLANA; the archaeological excavations of the Roman EGNATIA by the Adriatic Sea; the Trulli houses of ALBEROBELLO – a UNESCO World Heritage site: the medieval town of ORIA; the wealthy baroque town of MARTINA FRANCA; the outdoor drive-through 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 about one hour 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.

GETTING THERE:
By air, there is a choice of two international airports, served by Ryanair, Easyjet, BA and others, both quickly reached: Bari in the north by car on the motorway in approximately 1 hour 20 minutes and nearby Brindisi in the south in about 40 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 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 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 socialising; the home is used for sleeping and breakfast, and the Italians go out for enjoyment and dining. There is so much you can experience, like early morning markets in the 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 nightclubs 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. Scuba diving and fishing are available in Santa Sabina. Torre Guaceto nature reserve also extends to the sea, so the coastline presents a heaven of sea life, ideal for snorkelling.
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:
Southern Italy is warm and friendly, and the temperature in Ostuni is temperate all year round. Even in the cold of January, it doesn’t drop much below 15c.
The temperature in Apulia is very temperate. The summer months can get to 40, ideal for those sun lovers. May, June July, and September tend to be 25 to 30 March, April and October in the 20c.

Winter temperatures: Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb. ranges from 10c to 25c; it depends on the sun. We have had weeks of endless sunshine during the “Winter”. Places like Ostuni, Fasano and Cisternino are very hilly and can even have occasional snowfalls. The temperature can differ between these cities by 10.

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 10-11 sun hours 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 than at home. Therefore, you will need plenty of terrace space, pergolas, etc., at your Apulian property; outdoor cooking facilities 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 Apulia, and common means 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; Julia 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,
