Located between two seas (Adriatico and Ionio), is the perfect combination between tradition and culture of the hinterland and the beautiful beaches of the coast. It’s the perfect stay for families or groups of friends keen to discover the culture and customs of this ancient land without giving up the entertainments of the coastal resorts. The villa does not have a washing machine but near the property there is a public laundry. CONDITIONS AND PRICES The property can only be booked from Saturday to Saturday (except in low season).

APE energy certification level: G 132.5 kWh/m2 per year DESTINATIONS Villa Il Mandorlo is located near the town of Ceglie Messapica, in the Itria valley (Upper Salento), which is considered the capital of the cuisine of Puglia and easily reachable on foot. Ceglie Messapica is a very pleasant town full of baroque churches and has an interesting city centre with folkloric events for most of the year. Here you can find all the essential services for all your needs, such as supermarket, grocery stores, bars, post office, bank, pharmacy, clothing shops, restaurants etc. The surroundings are ideal for long walks in the countryside among olive groves, trulli and farmhouses. Nearby the estate is possible to visit a farm producing mozzarella cheese and dairy products typical of the area. The Caves of Montevicoli, located within 1 km, are particularly interesting and evocative. For sea lovers, at short distance (10 km) you can sunbathe on the golden beaches of Ostuni which have been awarded by Legambiente the Blue Flag, a prize given to the cleanest seas in Italy. Ostuni is called 'the White City' because of the white lime with which was once painted all over the buildings in the city centre, an image of huge impact and unforgettable for any visitor. The city is worth the visit for the high amount of monuments and cultural heritage of great value. Beach lovers won’t be disappointed, because the beaches around Ostuni continue to dazzle with their white sands and crystalline waters and make not regret distant Caribbean destinations.
