We are pleased to offer this beautiful detached 6 bedroom villa with large roof terrace, sitting in over 1½ acres of garden and located less than 2 kilometres from the centre of San Vito dei Normanni, and around 20 minutes from all beaches and the airport at Brindisi. This bright, spacious villa is spread over two floors for about 180m2. Each floor is self-contained with a modern kitchen, open plan lounge, three bedrooms, and one bathroom. The upper floor has a covered veranda for al-fresco dining and overlooks the front of the house. The lower ground floor has driveway access and also a veranda which overlooks the rear garden area, thus giving both units privacy. The villa built in 2005 has central heating and double glazing. There is a fireplace on each floor and a termo camino on the upper floor (which, with wood, provides heating instead of gas to the wall radiators in every room). An external staircase leads to the large roof terrace where it is possible to create a sundeck with a pergola and a summer kitchen. There is an artesian well for independent water, and the possibility to add a swimming pool. There is remotely controlled gated access, and a possibility to create two entrances to divide the property and use it for holiday lets. A lovely garden of 6500m2 (about 1.6 acres) surrounds the property with an olive grove, mandarin trees and several almond trees with beautiful pink flowers in the spring. The terraced area surrounding the front of the house is enormous, and offers the possibility to make it smaller and landscape it with new trees, green plants, etc. The villa is less than two km from San Vito Dei Normanni, with all amenities, including four supermarkets and a lovely piazza for a ‘passeggiata’ in the evening as well as fabulous local restaurants. Close by is the beautiful nature reserve Torre Gauceto by the sea. It offers an attractive escape from beach resorts as you find unspoiled beaches and no cars allowed here. From the property, the shores of the Adriatic Sea are easily reached in approximately 20-25 minutes (20 km). The parking is at the visitor’s centre, and there are organised nature walks, cycle trekking and snorkelling trips. Brindisi airport is also some 20 km away and easily reached in the same time.
Casa Travella was founded in 1987 when Linda & Pietro Travella saw an opportunity to offer Italian property for sale. At this time there were very few companies that offered any property for sale in Italy. Now years later read some of their story.
The company is fronted by Linda Travella and Casa Travella started selling property on Lake Como, where Pietro was born and Linda has worked and lived. The company were able to offer advice on numerous properties and ongoing help with all aspects of the buying process. If a client wants to restore a property, then Casa Travella can source tradesmen and professionals in the area and help with every aspect of the transaction.
When the BBC were looking for someone to speak on BBC Breakfast News about European property Linda was chosen to appear live on the programme. Other TV and radio programmes followed including Radio 5 Live, and ‘I want that House’ with Mark Simpkins, where Linda appeared in 6 episodes, the last one being a live programme from Florida, where an Italian apartment was given away as a prize. Linda appeared for RTE, Irish TV and for Channel 4‘s ‘A Place in the Sun’, where she accompanied Amanda Lamb along the shores of Lake Como by boat, to show her some of the stunning villas, including the one owned by George Clooney.
The Casa Travella team are always pleased to help when clients want to buy or sell a property in Italy. The office is multilingual with English, Italian and Spanish being spoken.
Linda says: ‘I feel proud that we can offer property for sale in many areas of Italy and we are able to give clients independent and professional advice on areas and types of property to suit their budget and needs.’
The Casa Travella team look forward to helping you buy or sell your Italian home.
