Feel the sheer pulse where an ancient rural farmhouse, sea, and olive trees collide. Built to help the local peasants with the harvest. Having changed very little in the past 100 years, it remains a true and authentic experience.
The Villaapulia location is convenient, just 10 km from the famous Apulian sandy beaches. Once you enter the gate of the complex, you'll find yourself in a true paradise with gardens, terraces, a pizza oven, and private access to the pool. Compared to other trulli , the villaapulia has the advantage of being located on the promontory, taking in sunlight all day long. From here you can enjoy both the sunrise and the even more magnificent setting of the sun behind the magical landscape with the unique coned shaped Trulli.
Villa Apulia itself is divided into 2 separate, but attached building and strucutred on 3 floors and can host up to 8 people (on request eventually 2 people more). The main part of the villa (the modern part) has an open character in which living room, upper bedroom and lower bedroom all have an open space character. The main floor has a spacious well equipped kitchen. The idea was to create an open space with high vaulted ceilings and large windows that look out on the country side with trulli and olive trees. The living room has a large sofa and the antique wooden table offers room for 8 persons. From the living area you can go down 5 steps towards the lower part of the house (no door). Here the owner has created a true 'wagon lits' with 4 double seized beds next and on top of each other. Attached to it a bathroom with walk-in shower and next to it a WC. From here a large door leads to the outside terrace and pool.
From the living room you can also take 5 steps up where you will find the master bedroom (no door) with a double bed, a large tub with overhead rain-shower, WC and a desk to work on your computer.
The veranda connects the old part with the new part of the villa. The ancient square shaped building is called a 'Lamia' in the local dialect. This small, but delicious house is independent and offers a comfortable sofa bed and a mezzanine with a true double bed. Shower and WC are tucked away in the corners of the lamia. On one side of the house there is an open kitchen.
Villa Apulia offers an authentic Apulia experience. Perfect for large families or a group of friends. Compared to the other towers it offers the best balance between price and quality. All you need to bring is your bathing suit and a smile.
This stunning property is available to discerning renters who appreciate its value and uniqueness, and who will treat it as if it were their own. Important to know that the modern part of the villa is one large open space without doors.
The minimum rental period is one week from Saturday to a Saturday. Weekend-only rentals are not allowed. Note: Until confirmed, rates are subject to change without notice.
Itria Valley (in Italian: Valle d'Itria) is an area located in Apulia (in Italian: Puglia) region, in Southern Italy. Itria Valley spreads over Province of Bari, Province of Brindisi and Province of Taranto, and coincide with the lower part of Murgia upland (Low Murgia). The towns of Martina Franca, Locorotondo, Cisternino and Ceglie Messapica overlook Itria Valley. "Valley" is an inaccurate term, because Itria Valley has not the typical conformation of mountain area valleys: it is just a depression due to karstic phenomena.
Itria Valley place-name is probably derived from Basilian Fathers oriental cult of the Madonna Odegitria (that is the Virgin Mary who shows the way), patron of wayfarers, which founded - using a natural shelter right in Itria Valley - a monastic site where a fresco portraying the Madonna Odegitria was found. Over the ruins of this medieval place of worship, located in Martina Franca, the Capuchin Monastery (in Italian: Convento dei Cappuccini) - which nowadays is an interesting tourist attraction - was built in 1545.
The main Itria Valley features are the following:
trulli, the typical ancient Apulian small round houses of stone with a conical roof;
a large amount of olives from which they obtain olive oil;
vineyards from which they obtain high quality white wine, such as Locorotondo DOC and Martina Franca DOC.
