Casa Del Bosco at Puglia
Casa del Bosco is a radiant home just a short walk from the centre and beach of Marina di Mancaversa, with famous Gallipoli being a 20-minute drive away. This beautiful holiday house is set within elegant, private grounds, offering a cooling retreat from the bustle of crowds within a refreshing oasis of swaying palm trees and understated interior style.
A glistening pool is framed by a chic patio and timber gazebo offering shade and a stylish spot to recline for breakfast after a refreshing morning swim, or for a glass of evening wine. Exceptionally private and safe, set behind enclosed gates surrounded by walls in local stone housing romanesque alcoves with charming statues looking across a spacious forecourt. Overlooking the lawns is a sedate balcony with timber sloped roof and ornate balustrades, leading to a further al fresco dining area beneath covered porch with lighting and the scent of the evergreens.

Casa del Bosco is located a-few-minute drive from the former fishing village of Marina di Mancaversa, set on the coastline of Puglia’s Ionian Sea. Mancaversa, as it is known locally, has a very local feel, off the tourist trail and ideal for family travel. There is a lovely waterfront promenade lined with cedar trees. Gallipoli is only 16 km distance; Gallipoli, meaning beautiful city in Greek is a summer escape known for being surround by water on all sides, with a longstanding fishing history and seafood featuring heavily in the cuisine. The centro storico is stunningly pretty, with winding alleyways, artisan boutiques and endless eateries. At a further forty-five kilometres visitors will reach Santa Maria di Leuca, Puglia's southern-most tip. Located in the “heel” of Italy, Puglia is known for its wonderful soft light and far reaching horizons; with the Ionian Sea on one side and the Adriatic on the other, there are miles upon miles of golden beaches. The region is known for its olive oil production, as evidenced by the surrounding stretches of olive groves as well as its distinctive white-washed hill towns, centuries old farmland and hundreds of kilometres of Mediterranean coastline. The capital Bari is a vibrant port and university town, whilst Lecce is the ‘Florence of the south’ - known for its baroque architecture and “trulli” - stone huts with cone shaped roofs that were originally homes; today they can be visited in their preserved form, and provide something of a fairy tale-esque experience for younger members of the group!
