Dimora Il Calaprico
The entire property, of over 13,000 square meters, is bounded by dry-stone walls and runs along the upper bed of the Lamasanta, a karst stream that descends towards the sea from the heights of the Ostuni hinterland, creating a one-of-a-kind ecosystem, rich in spontaneous Mediterranean wildlife and vegetation. The Lamasanta, along its path towards the Ostuni marina, crosses centuries-old olive groves, historic farms and the evocative Monastic Fraternity of Bose, and is perfect for walks or excursions by mountain bike from Calaprico.
The trullo consists of a living area with open kitchen, dining table and chairs, 2 bedrooms of which one has a queen size bed (convertible in 2 single beds) and 1 one with a French size bed, and a bathroom. There is a large outdoor area with table, chairs and deck chairs from which it is possible to enjoy the sea, being located in an elevated area halfway between the town and the sea.
There is a second villa (with a common entrance) of the same owner, who however will not be in the area during the guests' stays.
