Bellavista sits on a hilltop between Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica with panorama that takes in 3 ancient hilltop towns sweeping away to distant views of the Ionian Sea over a landscape of olive groves dotted with typical masserias (farmhouses) and trulli cones (a type of rustic conical stone building unique to this region and protected by UNESO status). The property is set at the centre of two and a half acres of gardens with olive, fruit & nut trees, pine grove and stone walled terraces stepping down the hillside and despite its lofty position offers a good level of privacy. With so many facilities and amenities making it feel like a mini private resort Comprising of a 3 bedroom villa and a 2 bedroom adjacent house (a barn conversion) each with its own independent lounge, dining and kitchen...Bellavista sits on a hilltop between Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica with panorama that takes in 3 ancient hilltop towns sweeping away to distant views of the Ionian Sea over a landscape of olive groves dotted with typical masserias (farmhouses) and trulli cones (a type of rustic conical stone building unique to this region and protected by UNESO status). The property is set at the centre of two and a half acres of gardens with olive, fruit & nut trees, pine grove and stone walled terraces stepping down the hillside and despite its lofty position offers a good level of privacy. With so many facilities and amenities making it feel like a mini private resort Comprising of a 3 bedroom villa and a 2 bedroom adjacent house (a barn conversion) each with its own independent lounge, dining and kitchen areas and outdoor terraces. The two building make Bellavista ideal for large family groups or groups of friends, and multiple families wishing to enjoy holidays together. The dual facilities provide a great deal of flexibility enabling a degree of privacy if required yet still offering multiple locations around the property and on the land where everyone can gather for fun, games and convivial meals. Outside the hard-to-beat amenities include a large tiled swimming pool, shallow relax/splash pool, roof garden, sunken Moroccan style roof terrace with futons and mood lighting, large covered pool terrace for alfresco living with its own lounge, dining table, bar and cooking on a BBQ or large gas ring with huge pans for paella, risotto or pasta plus outside fridge. This terrace has dimmable chandeliers for getting the atmosphere just right on those warm summer nights. On the trullo terrace there is a wood-fired pizza oven and BBQ, fire-pit and large dining table. The villa Courtyard has a further BBQ and dining table. For the active there are volleyball/badminton and boules/bocce courts.an exercise platform in the shape of an old olive tree with multiple bars, exercise straps and some weights, there is a round-the-clock, 5 hole mini golf course on the pine terrace, croquet ‘lawn’, darts, and corn hole game. .If you fancy some goal-mouth action head over to on elf the olive groves which has a mini goal set up for soccer fans Part way up the hill is a terrace facing the rising sun with a covered exercise/yoga platform (with mats) serenely overlooked by Buddha. The trullo has been converted to a music room with a few basic instruments, it has a lovely acoustic The slope of the hill is terraced with drystone walls and the upper terraces have been left semi-wild and have several strategically placed, secluded relaxing areas with hammocks and loungers affording splendid views away to the coast. Indoors you will find all bedrooms are en-suite and air conditioned with 4 of bedrooms opening directly onto terraces. The villa and the house each have their own well equipped independent kitchens, lounges and dining areas. Both have full wifi coverage (as does the pool) and TVs with DVD, Apple TV, Chromecast and Roku. Bellavista has well stocked libraries for books, CDs, DVDs, board games and card games.
