Other Amenities

  • The jewel in the crown of Villa Silvana are the grounds, offering a feast of perfumes and colours, and the large blue mosaic swimming pool (14x7). There is a delightful seating area with water jets inside the pool for cooling off, and it is completely private and secluded but still has wonderful views. Both the pool and gardens have been designed to blend sympathetically with the land and are planted in typical Puglian style; wild and natural rather than formerly landscaped. Most importantly the pool is only for Villa Silvana guests so it is always quiet and relaxing. Surprisingly even the noonday sun is never too much because of its fantastic hilltop position; the heat is always tempered by the gentle winds whispering in over the Atlantic, allowing you to laze on the many pool loungers, under the palm umbrellas all day long. The property has discreet cleaning staff, waitress service, chef who can offer some amazing menus, plus excellent Concierge /House Manager...moreless

Villa Silvana is in a prime position, literally in the centre of all the interesting tourist attraction, in the centre of Puglia and endless beaches, Mediterranean climate and exquisite cuisine. Puglia, has a landscape that is dripping with History from roman times onwards which is evident in its extraordinary array of architecture. The Normans endowed Puglia with splendidly ornate cathedrals and the baroque exuberance of some towns are testament to the Spanish legacy. But if there is one symbol of Puglia that stands out it's the imposing castles and mystical Trulli that are built all over the province.

Here the tourist industry still remains wonderfully primitive, which is amazing considering how much this region has to offer.

The Fasano / Lamia di Olimpia area

Villa Silvana's apartments are ideally situated for exploring Puglia's beautiful architecture, wonderful tourist attractions and the interior landscapes.

Art lovers can discover original art work both in the villa and around the neighbouring towns and villages, gourmets can taste fresh puglian food bought to their tables by the local chef or in the surrounding baroque and antique centre’s and sip excellent fresh home made wine on their private verandas looking out to sea or taste other delicious Puglia wines in the local “enoteca’s”, sportsmen can enjoy activities such as cycling in the hills, fishing and golf and all can relax in our beautiful Villa

There is an abundance of delightful towns all within close proximity to Villa Silvana. They all have an authentic Italian feel with year round street festa's, weekly market days and charming old centers dating back hundreds of years.

Only a few kilometers, down the hill, is Fasano, a beautiful ancient town which was subject to the Knights of Malta for many years. The hills (Selva di fasano) are a naturally wooded area rich in oak trees and perfect for stunning country walks.

A few kilometers drive into the interior are the towns of Ostuni, Martina Franca, Cisternino, Locorotondo and Alberobello.

Ostuni is an exquisite town known as the 'White City' because of its white washed streets surrounded by medieval walls, a visit is highly recommended. Martina Franca is a town with a tangible Moorish flavour, it has a medieval center adorned with some of the most subtle examples of baroque architecture that you'll find.

Cisternino and Locorotondo are both small charming towns, with whitewashed historic centers both obviously influenced by the Greeks. Also you can view the Valle d'itria from here, where some of puglias prettiest landscapes can be seen.

Of course the Trulli have always been an important tourist attraction for Puglia, their intrinsic beauty has capture the heart and soul of many. Alberobello is also only a short drive from the apartments, there is over a thousand of these magical limestone dwellings, standing out against the bright blue sky, they create a beautiful exotic scene, almost like a fairy tale, it is impossible to see anything like it, anywhere else in the world.

Also just a few kilometers away is the zoo-safari Fasanolandia. This is the greatest animal park in Italy, where 1000's of animals can be observed, kept free, in a completely protected area. There is also a dolphinarium and an amusement park for all ages.

If you are a lover of long leisurely lunches and relaxing dinners, where the wine flows, the food just keeps coming and the bill is surprisingly cheap, then you’ll be glad to know that the Restaurants, Trattoria’s, Osteria’s, Pizzeria’s, bars and cafes in Puglia are not only incredibly reasonable, but well renowned for their freshness and taste. The food, its preparation and consumption is the focal point of Italian life, so when you eat out in any establishment you will never feel like you’ve eaten merely to refuel but rather to experience a sensory delight. We can recommend some fantastic restaurants, some even within walking distance.

Whether you want the latest Gucci designs, antiques or just a good rummage around a local market, there is something for everyone in Puglia. Because of Villa Silvana’s prime location, strutting your stuff in Passegiata with the locals or being seen to be seen and enjoying the shops, is easy, as the apartments are near many of these small towns, that come alive at night.

There are many markets on in the surrounding villages that we can recommend


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: My name is Michael I am an artisan from Southern Ireland, I am a plaster and carpenter by trade but I like to work with all materials. My wife, Susanna is a makeup artist in the British and American film industry, we have been living in Puglia now for more than 15 years and we have a beautiful daughter Isabella We have always been great fans of Italy travelling here for work and pleasure over the years, but many reasons led us to Puglia. Originally we were drawn to the Heel of the boot, because of the lure of adventure and to explore its undiscovered secrets, but then Susan worked on a movie with the famous Italian director and actor Roberto Benigni and all her colleagues after the job was finished, advised her to visit Apulia, as it is the favourite destination for Italian tourists It’s so hard to explain to other’s why you feel so passionate about another land, maybe it is the fact that Puglia feels like the rest of Italy did 50 years ago or somewhere you can escape the stress of life nowadays or its probably Puglia’s seductive wildness, clear blue sea and unspoilt coastline, we were desperate for this after leaving behind the grey miserable skies and being overworked in my mundane job. Susan sometimes still works as a makeup artist but also enjoys to stay at home with our little girl and paints and exhibits her artwork and I have set up a small company with local Italian friends and artisans.We are enjoying one of the best lifestyles and quality of life that there is. The foundation of our local society is the family and community; its very obvious to us our italian friends close family ties and we’re very privileged to be included in so many families here, friends are never slow to break into song or dance when the mood strikes them. For sheer vitality and passion for life, Italians have few equals and, whatever Italy can be accused of, it’s never plain or boring living here, its just wonderful
