The charming cottage which was built in 1972 is reached from a driveway lined with oak and pine trees, and currently provides about 59m2 of accommodation, although this could be extended subject to planning permission. The entrance hall leads you into the living room with fireplace, separate kitchen with door leading to rear of property, 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom. To the rear of the property the house features a pizza and bread oven and offers the ideal space for a pergola and also a future pool, perfect for outdoor gatherings. The property sits in about 6000m2 (about 1.48 acres) of land with olive groves and vegetable garden and offers high degree of privacy, yet is just 2km southwest of San Vito dei Normanni and 5 minutes to the nearest supermarket. The beaches of the Adriatic Sea, namely Torre Santa Sabina and Specchiolla can easily be reached in about 15-20 minutes whilst the nature reserve of Torre Guaceto is also just 20 minutes away. The airport at Brindisi is some 30km and 30 minutes away, whilst Bari airport to the north is about 1 hour 40 minutes. This is a super little house, close to all amenities and the sea, which could be developed into a lovely detached house for personal use or even to provide rental income.
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.
