The property is located nearby the Ionian sea at 3 km. The location is Marina di Castellaneta (TA) PUGLIA, which is famous for Trulli and Alberobello UNESCO heritage. Puglia is also famous for another Unesco heritage which is " Del Monte Castle. Castellaneta Marina is also very close to another Unesco heritage " Matera Stones". The property has two levels and it is in front of a golf court "Riva dei Tessali. Two balconies are in front of the golf court at 2 meters of distance .It Is a villa very comfortable , part of a village composed by 100 other villas with a forest of 90 hectars of pine trees where it is possible doing jogging. There are also one splendid swimming pool, one tennis court, one football court (for 5 people team each) There is also a "square" called " Piazzetta" where there is one lounge bar, one food shop, one restaurant- pizzeria. At the village ( Città del Catalano) entrance there is the concierge. The village is still under construction for some villas so that some villas are note completed.
On May and June the swimming pool, restaurant , lounge bar and food shop inside the village could not be opened yet. In such case nearby there are supermarkets , bar and restaurants always opened at around 3 km of distance .
Anyway please ask to property since there should be the possibility that bar, restaurant and food shop , inside the village , could be opened on May and June. The swimming pool will be opened till half of september.
In the autumn and winter months the village is always opened and the reception at the entrance is opened 24 hours. But restaurant, bar and food shop are not opened. It takes about 5 minutes by car for reaching a small city called GINOSA Marina where the guest can find all the shops, supermarkets, bars.
The property has all the comforts with one big hall, one kitchen with oven, dishwasher, fridge, washing machine, big sofa inside and outside in the garden with lawn There are three bathrooms in the house.. The villa is very recent and luxury furnished. Air conditioning is in all the rooms. Three bedrooms are upstair with two bathrooms.. There are two closets; one downstairs and one upstairs . There is also a new ping pong table. Since the villa is quite big another person could sleep downstairs and another bed could be added in the current single room. It is very well furnished since it was my personal villa.
The sea has several Kilometers of beaches with white sand. The sea is always calm. Some beaches are free of charge while others you shoudl pay the entrance. Nearby, two small towns are very close , both at about 3 miles of distance.

PUGLIA is a splendid region of Italy. The sea and the sky are always blue and the cuisine is special with a lot of food to eat.
Puglia, also called Apulia, regione, southeastern Italy. It extends from the Fortore River in the northwest to Cape Santa Maria di Leuca at the tip of the Salentine Peninsula (the “heel” of Italy) and comprises the provincie of Bari, Barletta-Andria-Trani, Brindisi, Foggia, Lecce, and Taranto. The northern third of the region is centred on the Puglia Tableland, which is flanked on the north by the limestone massif of Gargano Promontory (the “spur” of the peninsula) and on the west by the Neapolitan Apennines. The central third is occupied by the low Murge plateau, which slopes gradually to the narrow coastal plains of the Adriatic Sea in the east. The Salentine Peninsula consists of the lowlands of Lecce, Taranto, and Brindisi and low plateaus east of Taranto and south of Lecce. The main rock material of Puglia is limestone, except on the coastline, which is mostly low and sandy. The only major rivers are the Fortore and the Ofanto, both in the north, but there are many springs. The absence of surface water over large areas led to construction of the Apulian Aqueduct (1906–39), largest of its kind in Italy, which supplies the region with water from the Sele River on the western slope of the Apennine watershed.
