ANCIENT AND CHARMING COUNTRY HOUSE
This ancient and charming country house is situated at a short distance from Ostuni and just a few minutes from the sea. It is set in the middle of a countryside which is made up of red soil, outlined by dry–stone walls, and dotted by olive trees.
It is a suited place to spend a rewarding holiday in contact with nature in an outstandingly interesting tourist region.
The building is made of local stone and fossile tophus (on the walls you can actually see various fossil moulds !).
The reconstruction works have taken care to preserve and enhance the original architecture.
Villa Primavera has a living room with a brickwork kitchenette, a bedroom, a bathroom, a gazebo with a garden furniture and barbecue facilities.
The furniture has been chosen carefully paying attention to the details, the rooms are comfortable and cosy, they have been outfitted with hand - made solid wood furniture, wrought iron furnishings, exquisite window treatments.
Villa Primavera is set in the peace and quiet of nature overlooking olive groves and fruit orchards.
To visit Ostuni, the so-called “Città Bianca” (White City), is an unforgettable experience.
You go up towards the historical centre through a succession of narrow, winding streets made of white houses pressed together, painted windows, arches and steps. We suggest you take your time along the lanes and around the crafts shops: all of a sudden just around a corner you will behold the overwhelming view of the valley and the sea.
The 15th century cathedral represents a feat of the local stone, it has a splendid façade and an imposing 24 ray rose window.
Music festivals and many typical restaurants and bars where you can listen to live music or savour delicious local dishes brighten the night life. You can find discos along the coast. The cuisine in this area is genuine and full of inventive. Flavours from the vegetable garden mix with the aroma of seafood, enhanced by an extraordinary olive oil and accompanied by tasty cheeses, “taralli”, “friselle” and generous, rich wines.
This is a land blessed by the sun, plentiful in Nature, Art and History.
You can enjoy the sea or take unusual walks in the quest of caves, cathedrals, castles, rupestrian settlements, nature reserves.
The karsic caves of Castellana, the archaeological sites of Egnazia, Castel del Monte, and Valle d’Itria, the ceramics of Grottaglie, the nature reserve of Torre Guaceto (where migratory birds stop to rest and reproduce), the Trulli of Alberobello, Lecce whose historical centre is famous for its exquisite baroque, are all fantastic destinations for a one day outing.
The sea is about 15 km away and there are both white, sandy beaches and rocky stony beaches. Some of the beaches are equipped with clubs, and offer facilities, others are public beaches. The crystal blue sea is excellent for snorkeling and diving.
A double sofa bed is available in the dining room
