Villa Belfiore sits in the tranquil countryside of rural Pugla surrounded by olive groves and vineyards yet is just 5 minutes from the thriving, medieval town of Oria with its beautiful historic centre, castle, many restaurants and all the amenities you'll need.
The Villa is ideally placed for exploring the wonderful towns and cities of Puglia and also conveniently located between the Adriatic coast and the Ionian coast, each 30 minutes away.
Comfortably sleeping 6/7 with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the Villa has a spacious open plan sitting/dining room with a well-equipped kitchen. There is a further toilet and shower area by the pool all of which is set in mature landscaped gardens with lawns and flowerbeds. The house is located off a quiet road and has a gated driveway with parking.
The shaded verandas directly accessible from the house provide areas to dine alfresco or sit and relax. Both the front and rear verandas have sofas and dining facilities, giving you the option of choosing the coolest or warmest area depending on the time of day. The rear veranda leads to a lower terrace with bbq and seating and from there the tiled walkway edged in lavander guides you under the wisteria-covered pergola to the pool area. Here there are six sunloungers, a shaded gazebo with table and chairs, and an umbrella for shade while cooling off on the steps of the pool. The 10 x 5 m pool, fully tiled in mosaic, provides a wonderful space to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside. Completely private it is the perfect spot to swim or enjoy the sun. There is also a large area of lawn next to the pool which is great for children to play.
The garden around the house and pool is fenced and walled. Our land extends for a further hectare behind the house and garden where we have an olive grove of 190 trees, a vegetable garden and an area of fruit trees including pears, figs, plums, apples, apricots, lemons, oranges and clementines. Guests are very welcome to wander in this area and help themselves to whatever is in season, includings fresh vegetables from the vegetable plot.
The villa has everything you need to enjoy a memorable holiday with family and/or friends and is a great choice for those looking for the peace and quiet of an Italian countryside location but close to the amenities of a traditional town, with the sights and coasts of Puglia within easy reach.
