FOR RENT, FOR SALE:
In the unspoilt Puglia discovered by the Northern European tourists, you will find a very interesting type of home, the so-called "trullo". These fairy-like buildings with pointed, slate roofs (so-called "coni") and dome-shaped roofs (such as Casa Girasole) were built some 200 to 300 years ago from large red-yellow errands only in this specific part of Puglia.
Want to celebrate in a real trullo holiday? This 200 year old trullo forms the basis of Casa Girasole. In 2001, the renovation of this completely cool trullo started so that it is now a fantastic and wonderfully livable holiday home for 5 guests. In the middle of nature, just behind the still unspoiled Pugliese dunes with their special vegetation and beautiful fishing villages that adorn the coastline and do not yet have mass tourism.
The trullo has an immensely thick wall (about 1 m) that is part of the inner walls. The trullo bedroom has a dome as a ceiling in which on the east through a small window the morning light falls playfully. In the wall of the trullo a cozy fireplace has been built in the living room. The trullo wall also runs in the bathroom where you can put all your bathroom stuff on the large rim.
The house has a total living area of 95 m2 in which the well-kept, cozy living room with a large kitchen that is newly built in 2012. This kitchen is equipped with a large retro no-frost fridge with freezer, 5-burner gas hob, oven, extractor fan and double sink.
The three bedrooms have been carefully decorated with romantic forged steel bedsteads and country furniture. The bathroom has a comfortable, spacious shower cabin, a bidet, toilet and a sink.
In the garden of 'Casa Girasole' there are two terraces, one with a large fireplace where you can have a barbecue. There is also an outdoor shower, four dining tables and six dining chairs, seven lounge chairs (with cushions) and two sun beds. There is a washing machine in the veranda at the side of the house. Also here is the beach umbrella that you can take with you when you visit the beach.
Our property is on a property owned by the manager's family; there are a few other houses on this. These houses are far apart and deliberately situated in such a way that optimum privacy is guaranteed for all guests. Furthermore, there are olive trees, various fruit trees (lemon, lime) and sea pines for the necessary shade.
Free WiFi is available in the house and garden.
The site is fenced and it is accessible through a fence that is always closed. Both right in front of this site and directly next to it (between the sea and 'Casa Girasole') are vineyards. The beach at the crystal clear Mare Ionico is only 900 meters from the trullo. The beach is slowly declining, which can be nice for small children.
Except that this beautiful, very spacious trullo is rented, he is also FOR SALE! We are happy to provide information without obligation or refer you to our broker.
