Contrada Fantese is an old masseria (old farm), consisting of only three properties/homes. Our neighbours are locals who farm the land and restore the surrounding trulli. It lies in the middle of the valley d'Itria, surrounded by fields and there are superb views of Locorontondo and Cisternino from the garden.
The area is close to all the famous towns of the area, Martina Franca, Alberobello, Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica (renowned for its restaurants).
The sea is about 25 minutes drive away with beautiful sandy beaches. The area is full of wild flowers, olive, fig, walnut and almond trees and local vineyards.
Cycle on the famous Italian cycling routes (2 minutes from the villa), visit the Bhole Baba Buddhist centre for yoga and meditation, run through the countryside, visit the vineyards, cheese shops.
