Doubles 5 Bathrooms 6
Itaca is located near the village called Sava, situated between Lecce, Taranto and Brindisi, not far from the sea of Campomarino (more or less 10 kilometres), characterized by crystal clear waters.
This villa has 5 double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, A/C and a fridge. When going out of the villa, there is a short path of a few meters leading to the swimming pool area, next to the pool there is a gazebo used as an outdoor massage area, a small gym and the guest house.
Being on flat land, Itaca is an ideal starting point for cycling tours to discover the caves, churches, farms and much more. Also many guests will like to the possibility to pick up organic fruit and vegetables in the garden of the villa. One particular detail; the grounds of the villa still have traces of past ages. Since it was completely submerged by the sea, you can still find presence of marine fossils.
Sava is located at the center of the triangle formed by Taranto-Brindisi-Lecce and other smaller villages, but full of history. Such as Oria, a medieval town, Manduria the largest center of the Messapi and the Ionian sea with its coastlines enlivened by beautiful dunes and crystal clear water, like only few in the world can offer. The nearest airport to get to villa Itaca is the one of Brindisi.

"As a global traveler I often anticipate how my accommodations would feel like, but nothing prepared me for the genuine hospitality felt during my stay at Itaca. Daily as we peered out any window or lounged in the outdoor living areas, we were delighted by the unique and expansive landscape that included large oaks, ancient lava rock, the scent of neighboring olive trees, grape vines as well as pomegranate fruit. The villa was conducive for romance, swimming, socializing and best of all quiet reading. Giuseppe orchestrated the best evening ambiance through creative use of outdoor candles, breathtaking florals and Italian music. Special touches such as fresh morning pastries or grilled meats for a barbecue met out culinary needs. The staff was attentive yet not intrusive. I would recommend this villa to anyone looking to explore the Puglia region of Italy. You won't be disappointed."
