At the end of a small country road, in an Apulian protected forest, one arrives at the “Giardino dei Cipressi” just a 1 km away from an old Medieval town in the Valle D’Itria. The property is encased by romantic gardens that smell of fresh herbs and carry a variety of plants from hazelnut bushes, lavender, rose bushes, to 30 Cypress trees. The garden comes to life at all times of the day but is particularly best enjoyed at sunrise, sunset and during the night where the towns lights and star studded Apulian skies flicker upon the beautiful Cypress trees.
Once you enter the main house, up one of the many stairways, as the house can be accessed from a number of entries, you will be greeted by a well designed interior. Polished oak wooden floors meet the eye, 180 degree moon shaped windows that bring in lots of light, a fireplace, stone columns, hallways, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and even a private garage with a separate driveway are all at your disposal. The owners have put a lot of love into their home and are incredibly aesthetic individual.
“Giardino di Cipressi” is unique for Apulia – it is a rare gem in terms of the spaciousness within the set structures of old stone barns. This is an exceptional find as the owner was able to receive permits that allowed him to restore the barn to unmatched proportions, not usually available. The English garden design is very unusual for this part of the world.
