The Villa overlooking the sea is located in one of the most spectacular scenery of Salento. The Villa of 200 square meters is on a plot of 6,000 square meters that slopes down to the Adriatic sea, jagged by terraces bordered by typical dry stone walls, located in the Otranto – Santa Maria di Leuca Natural Park.
The Villa for sale is spread over two levels, which follow the course of the land. The upper floor consists of an open plan Living room and Dining room, Kitchen, 3 Bedrooms with sea view, 2 Bathrooms (of which 1 in the room), and a hallway.
From the living room, you can exit onto the terrace facing the house overlooking the sea, or on the back of the Villa, where there is a pergola, also with a sea view.
Outside and in front of the Villa, there is a space that can be equipped with a gazebo, sunbeds, or table and chairs for outdoor lunches and dinners, as well as the pergola at the back.
The floor on the lower level consists of a Living Room with Open Space Kitchen, 2 Bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, and an outdoor porch overlooking the sea. The two levels are not communicating from the inside. Both have private and independent access. Therefore, they can be used as two separate housing units.
The exterior of the Villa is entirely covered with local stone. This makes it perfectly in harmony with the surrounding natural environment. On the side terrace, there is an outdoor barbecue with all the necessary space to be set up as a living area with a gazebo, table, chairs, or loungers to relax surrounded by nature and pleasant Mediterranean scents.
In the garden, there is a swimming pool with a breathtaking sea view. The Villa faces southeast, an ideal location to admire the sunrise in the morning when the landscape around is colored with shades that slowly pass from blue to pink before seeing the sun as it rises to the horizon. A magical place that offers spectacular views.
When the sky is clear and blue, in the distance you can see the mountains of Albania and the nearby Greek islands, located just two hours of navigation. In August, however, after sunset, the full moon rises on the horizon, bigger, redder and more beautiful than ever.
The entire property as well as the surrounding ones, falls in the Otranto - Santa Maria di Leuca - Bosco di Tricase Regional Natural Park. Being therefore a part of protected territory, nothing will be built beyond that already present and the territory will remain unchanged in all its beauty and authenticity. The whole property that extends in front of the Villa and that goes down to the sea is characterized by the presence of terraces delimited by the typical dry stone walls of Salento. They present themselves as real gardens that can be used in a functional, creative, and original way. You can create terraced gardens with typical Mediterranean plants and succulents, and create within a nature trail, dedicate some of the spaces to set up relaxing corners, with hammocks, wooden seats, and Umbrellas where you can practice Yoga or spend pleasant evenings in the moonlight. In this stretch of coast, in fact, there are few buildings and many spaces uninhabited and wild, You can look at the sky and the stars, especially in the night of San Lorenzo, without the hassle of lights that normally prevent the view. A sheep track, which is an old typical path in the Salento countryside, leads to the sea. If you are a lover of trekking, in this area there are several itineraries that alternate walks on the coast overlooking the sea or in the countryside along the sheep tracks.
In addition, there are two cisterns for the supply of drinking water, which can then be filled with tankers. The property is accessed from the main road, going down a short dirt road, at the end of which is the car park. From that point, we proceed towards the Villa through a stone staircase, bordered by dry stone walls and terraced flower beds on both sides, characterized by the presence of Mediterranean Maquis, some olive trees, palms, prickly pears and other succulents.
