Terlizzi villa description

The Villa promises you an unforgettable, authentic stay in a truly undiscovered part of Italy. Relax and immerse yourself in Italian indulgence — the food, the people, the fun.

The Villa sits majestically on the ancient Via Appia in the town of Terlizzi, just northwest of Bari in the region of Puglia.

No one is quite sure when the villa first sprung up but some historians believe the garden to have once been a 13th century monastic garden. The “farm” buildings on the property probably date to the 14th and 15th centuries. While the newest additions were probably built in the 17th or 18th centuries, one peculiar location in the villa is believed to be pre-Christian.

The land, filled with fossils from 10 million years ago, is covered by ancient olive groves, vineyards, and fruit trees. The entire villa is completely enclosed by an 18 ft. wall and features a formal half-acre garden planted almost exclusively with citrus trees, roses and lavender.

The Villa is available for rentals by the day, week or longer. It is also available for private functions, parties, banquets, conferences and feasts. While steeped in history, the villa also features modern conveniences like free WiFi, a fully stocked kitchen and cooking and cleaning services.

You won’t find an experience like this anywhere else.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: We discovered a crumbling villa near our family's hometown in Puglia, Italy. The 22,000-square-foot property lacked doors, windows and running water, but it had a vineyard and groves of almond, olive, and fruit trees that were among the finest in the region. From the moment we stepped foot on this property, we felt that we needed to restore its soul. In the process, it ended up restoring ours.

                      Why the Owner Chose Terlizzi:
                      This town, this entire part of Italy in fact, is so real, so amazing, so untouched, it just feels like you are transported back in time. A simpler time. Where it’s all about family. It's all about natural, locally grown food (nothing is ever eaten out of season). It’s all about slowing down and enjoying life. While very private and secluded, the villa is just a quick drive to many big towns, including the capital city of Bari. And there are several great day trips you can do in the morning (Polignano a Mare, Castel del Monte, etc.) and be back in time for a great lunch by the pool with friends and family, old and new.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      You can take amazing walks along the ancient Via Appia, enjoy some great food at the villa and in town (Terlizzi is renowned for its butchers and grilled meat), or just sit by the pool with a good book and great view. Sitting on top of a hill, you always have amazing views of the surrounding countryside from the villa. We have connections throughout the town and the region, so we can direct you to the best spots to make your stay extra special. And with enough notice, we can set up all kinds of activities. We also speak fluent Italian and English and a bit of French, so we are always available to help with any translating or guidance. When you're all done, at the end of the day, you can enjoy a glass of limoncello or grappa and play a round of Scopa, our favorite Italian card game.
