An old farmhouse in the countryside with typical cone-shaped trullo roofs – Serena, now the owner, fell in love with it and has put much effort as well as her heart and soul into restoring it. The result, a comfortable holiday home, which radiates the charm of times gone by, lies embedded on an 8,000 m² property – a dream of an accommodation for Apulia vacationers!
Start into your day by swimming a few laps in the wonderful pool in the morning before enjoying a delicious croissant for breakfast just like the Italians do.
Afterwards: relax on the terrace of your holiday home, leave for an excursion to the marvelous white towns of Cisternino and Ostuni (ca. 7 km off) or pack up your swimwear and go to the beach – the choice is yours.
If you spend your holidays in Apulia, you have got the so-called „imbarazzo della scelta“ – you are spoilt for choice.
By the way, the sandy beaches about 15 km off count among the most beautiful in Italy.
Another holiday home of owner Serena, „La Torretta“, is located in the immediate vicinity of Casa del Pastore, 150 m off.
The way up to Casa del Pastore is lined by almond trees.
Comfortable and cozy furnishing is found inside the holiday home, which accommodates four adults and two children. During the works of renovation special care was paid to preserving the rural style and the natural coloring.
When entering your holiday accommodation, you find yourself in an impressive living/dining room with very well appointed kitchen, dining area and a round arch opening into the 'fireplace room' with two sofas.
The kitchen includes gas stove, oven, refrigerator with freezer compartment, dish washer, toaster, water boiler and Nespresso coffee machine.
The door to the left in the eat-in kitchen opens into the living room with TV, from where you reach a pass-through room, which in former times used to be home to the animals, the stable. This room offers access of a trullo bedroom with double bed and a bathroom with shower, WC and bidet.
The right-hand door in the eat-in kitchen opens into the second bedroom, also with double bed as well as en-suite bathroom with shower, WC and bidet.
With its two separate sleeping areas, each with en suite bathroom, Casa del Pastore might be ideal for two couples, who wish to spend their holidays together, but also have a bit of privacy.
Families can be provided with additional beds for children or a cradle upon request.
Internet access is available via WLAN.
The strong walls of the building provide for a pleasant atmosphere inside, temperatures are neither too high nor too low. According to the owner’s experience air conditioning is not necessary; the holiday home is, however, furnished with heating and a fireplace.
Holidays homes as well furnished as Casa del Pastore are seldom found in Southern Italy.
Quite a number of sunbeds are found at the pool, which, depending on weather conditions, is open from end of April to mid October, as well as on an adjacent shaded terrace.
As the pool measures 3.5 x 10 meters, it might, in some cases, be a good alternative to swimming in the sea.
The place in front of the house, where you find comfortable garden furniture at your disposal, might be the ideal spot to gather for an aperitif before dinner.
Under a stately old olive tree you can enjoy your evening meal before relaxing in the hammocks.
A grill, a parasol and an outdoor shower are also found in the outdoor area.
Furnishing of Casa del Pastore includes, amongst others, WLAN, washing machine, dish washer, toaster, water boiler, Nespresso coffee machine, grill, outdoor shower, hair dryer, fly screens, gas heating and fireplace.
