The town is famous for its burrata cheese and mozzarella, also known for ‘zampine, ‘ a rolled sausage. Gioia di Colle has also a DOC classification for its fine Primitivo (Zinfandel) red wine.
The property is located in the municipality of Castellaneta, which is 17 km away. This town is also worth visiting and has many satisfactory Architectural and exciting history.The property is only 45 minutes from Bari Airport, thanks to the modern motorway E843. It is an inexpensive toll road, the fastest way, and in excellent condition.The villa has the advantage of being not far from central areas of world interest such as the world famous trulli houses of ALBEROBELLO – an UNESCO World heritage site (40 minutes); MATERA, also an UNESCO World heritage site (40 minutes) with international fame for its ancient town and dwellings carved into the rock thought to be the first ever built settlement in Italy; the mile long caves of CASTELLANA; the archaeological excavations of the Roman EGNATIA by the Adriatic coast line; the beautiful white town of OSTUNI, located on top of a hill with fantastic sea views; the medieval city of ORIA; the wealthy baroque town of MARTINA FRANCA ( where the grapes to the famous Martini wine comes from); the petite and charming CISTERNINO, the Zoo Safari Park of FASANO (lots of fun for children and adults alike); the sea side POLIGNANO A MARE, well known also for its tasty ice cream; GROTTAGLIE famous for its ceramics and old stone carvings; and last but not least the famous baroque city of LECCE which is called the Florence of the South. Lecce has countless medical churches and a great richness of architecture. In town, the famous Roman amphibia theatre is also used for music and drama performances in the open during the summer season. Lecce is a beautiful town for long walks, enjoying the fantastic atmosphere, bars, outside restaurants and great shops.The distance to the IONIAN SEA is approximately 41 km (30-35 minutes) and offers many friendly seaside villages from Lido Azzurro to Castellaneta, with the extensive nature reserve Stornara in between.Further to the south, inland SALENTO has several charming historical villages with ancient history. The advantage of staying in a village is socialising with Italian neighbours, walking to the cafe and buying a newspaper and a cup of coffee in the morning and having all amenities within reach during daytime and nighttime. The townhouses often come with a garden and roof terrace, and it’s fascinating to open the simple door from the street – and inside, almost like a little palace with a garden!In Sternatina and Martignano to the south of Lecce, the villagers still speak antique Greek.
Maglie is like a mini Lecce with many fine buildings. Muro Leccese is more diminutive and represents a small town/village with a satisfactory architectural history. Cutrofiano is famous for French holiday home ownership. Ruffano has many fine old buildings for sale, waiting to find new owners and to be restored. Surano has a small town centre with very nice antique buildings for sale. Spongano is a small village surrounded by olive grooves. Here you can see secluded, grand villas and country retreats owned by foreigners and families from North Italy who come to relax in rural Salento.
The east coast of Salento is rougher than the southwest and for people who enjoy the sea and fishing. Somewhat more elegant than the east coast. Castro is beautiful with its location on top of the cliff by the sea and many villas with direct access to the sea. Santa Cesarea Terme is a spa resort, very popular with a beautiful setting and bay.
The cost from Santa Maria di Leuca to Gallipoli has many fine sandy beaches. The villages are perhaps not the prettiest but room for beach life, pizzerias, restaurants and disco music in the summertime.
Santa Catarina is also well known for its many fine villas in the area, some antique.
The sea outside Porto Cesare, further up the coast, is probably the most beautiful and fantastic sunset.GETTING THERE:
By air, there are two international airports, served by Ryanair, Easyjet, BA and others, both easily reached; Bari in the north by car (63 km) on the toll motorway in approximately 45 minutes and Brindisi in the south, about 75 minutes.
