The port cities of the South: Attractive villa purchase in Italy

At the southwest end of Italy, the Apulia region is home to a number of smaller port cities, which have long since survived many centuries of Italian history. Here, where the Adriatic passes into the Ionian Sea and the Mediterranean sun provides for a pleasant warm climate over long periods of the year, you will find the best opportunities for buying a villa in coastal, rural terrain of Gallipoli. Get to know this coastal region with your real estate agent Engel & Völkers and discover an interesting villa near Santa Maria di Leuca in Salento, which could soon be yours.

In towns such as Gallipoli or Leuca, on the Mediterranean coast, in contrast to the nearest metropolis of Lecce, life's still quite tranquil. Leuca, which is the southernmost point of Apulia, has just 2,000 inhabitants living around the palm-fringed harbor of the settlement. After fishery had represented the primary industry for a long time, some impressive buildings and sights were built at the end of the 19th century. These include several art nouveau villas from the early 20th century as well as the lighthouse from 1864, one of the most splendid ones in Italy. The port of Leuca is also a popular starting point for yacht and sailboat tours in front of the beautiful south coast of Italy, with around 700 berths.

Rusticity meets modernity: Revised villa near Santa Maria di Leuca

The origins of the 2,635-square-meter estate, dating back to the Byzantine era, are the same: the basic masonry and a fountain are from this period and are of invaluable historical quality. A bright, two-storey villa with about 110 square meters of living space was built around it, the highlights of which were the large swimming pool, the expansive, multi-storey terraces and the great views of the Mediterranean. Each of the five bathrooms and five bedrooms provide more than enough space for large families or guests.
