THE TWO VILLAS
Casa Settembre is a unique property.

There is also a 6mx3m overground splash pool surrounded by sunbathing areas outside the stone barn, called a lamia in Puglia.
The larger villa, The Main House, has three big airy double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large modern fully fitted kitchen, sitting room with open fire, laundry and dining room as well as a beautiful outside dining area. There are marble and ceramic floors throughout.
There is full gas-fired central heating and a large open fire place.
Most windows and doors are double glazed and benefit from secure metal shutters and fly screens.
The smaller villa, The Guest House, has two vaulted double bedrooms, kitchen, sitting room, two bathrooms, dining room and outside dining area with barbeque, herb garden, boule court, woods and orchard.
There is full gas-fired central heating and a wood burning stove.
There are iron security grids and wooden shutters inside and outside on all windows.
Both villas are solidly built of stone around the famous trulli cones. Both have been fully modernised and are well maintained.
There are two barbeques, a traditional working pizza oven, a large stone barn, a stone built wood store and a stone built store house.
The extensive grounds (1,100 square metres or 2.75 acres) comprise a woodland area, a herb garden, a boule court, a large fruit orchard and a separate nut orchard , an ornamental garden, a 12mx6m swimming pool with diving board, an arbour and wide sunbathing patios surrounded by formal hedges, topiary and rose garden. The gardens are beautiful and easily maintained with weed inhibiting membrane under all formal areas. There is an over ground swimming pool and sunbathing area in an enclosed garden outside the barn.
All services for each house are separate from each other.
There are two underground gas tanks.
An aqueduct supplies water which is used to fill two underground water tanks or cisternas. There is a pump house containing two pumping systems for water supply.
Two septic tanks deal efficiently with drainage and outflows.
There are two separate entrance gates, one set for each villa.
There is ample parking and the whole site is fully and securely fenced.
Everything has been designed to minimise maintenance.
The villas stand among extensively wooded and protected countryside. The country road that runs past the villas is part of the European cycle network of country roads, tracks and paths. It also comprises part of the network of hiking and nature trail track ways.
There is a warehouse nearby which is used for the storage and distribution of motor parts. It is silent and not intrusive. There is a farm opposite but none of the farm buildings can be seen from the villas.
There are open fields opposite and behind the villas.
