The region: Apulia is the southern region that forms the heel of Italy’s boot with hundreds of kilometers of coastline to the Mediterranean Sea. Its capital, Bari, is a industrial port and university city, as is the city of Brindisi, both with an international airport. Another important city is Lecce, known as the “Florence of the South” for its Baroque architecture.
The coast has iconic landscapes where you can enjoy coves, caves and cities such as Polignano a Mare and Monopoli, which have existed since the days of the Roman Empire as fishing villages and are now a great tourist attraction due to their charm. A few kilometers inland we find the city of Alberobello, listed as world heritage by UNESCO, and the Itria Valley, where we will find the Trulli, stone huts with conical stone roofs, characteristic of the area.
This area of Fasano-Ostuni with “masserie” (elegant country houses) dating from the 5th century AD. C., base of the Knights of Malta and Baliaggio d’Italia of the Byzantine Order of the Holy Sepulcher, is full of ancient olive trees. Groves against the hills of the Fasano Forest of Valle d’Itria, facing the crystal-clear waters of the Apulian coast. The villa is located in the characteristic hamlet of Pozzo Faceto, part of the Fasano countryside. A short distance from Ostuni, known as the white city, from the traditional trulli of Alberobello, from the Caves and Grottoes of Castellana, and from the remarkable baroque town of Martina Franca.

The two properties have the possibility of becoming a small charm hotel / boutique hotel, expanding the building capacity. Only the main house has had an appraisal higher than the sale price of both properties (main house and renovated guest house), so the sale price proves to be a clear investment opportunity.
