For anyone who loves the sea, this spectacular property is heaven on earth. Fano boasts one of the best locations of all our Puglia villa rentals: set on a hill high above the clear blue waters of the Adriatic, it commands stunning views.
The villa is perfectly designed to make the most of its location, with large terraced areas on two levels, plus a gazebo and barbecue area. There is a well-maintained garden with roses and fragrant Mediterranean shrubs, sloping down to attractive stone walls. Enjoy leisurely meals on the shady patio, with the sea as a constant backdrop.
Antiques and contemporary furnishing are blended throughout... the air-conditioned interior. The inviting living area and adjacent dining area benefit from rustic stone walls, while the blue-tiled kitchen is equipped for all your catering needs. An outdoor lounge area is set on the first floor balcony, where you can sit in the shade or on the white sofas – another vantage point for the breathtaking views.
The four bedrooms, two of which are queen sized with en-suite bathrooms, are situated upstairs and are provided with quality linens and authentic antiques reflecting Puglian culture. The two queen bedrooms have flat-screen TVs, and the villa’s bathrooms are decorated with an attractive mosaic design.
It’s just a short stroll to the attractive coastal town of Castro, with shops, restaurants and an impressive medieval castle. The nearest large sandy beach is at Otranto, 30 minutes away – although you will also find quiet coves for sunbathing and swimming along the Adriatic’s rocky shores.
