Il Tempo Ritrovato is a luxury Apulian property of significant historical value that ignited the passion of an anthropologist and his wife. The beautifully restored Il Tempo Ritrovato is now for sale. The terrain spreads over 5 hectares of land that offers enchanting garden passages, rolling hills, and an ancient Messapica stone fortification where archeological artifacts were found by its owner.
The property is a combination of restored structures including trulli, lamia, and newly built space. The space consists of a main building and annex, that is connected by an illuminated pathway to the guest house cottages.
The house has a number of unique features for this region of Puglia which includes an arched entryway, the landscaped garden passages, a garage, the walled courtyard with palm trees, a swimming pool, and 2 outside dining pergolas. The main house offers 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, a kitchen, a living room, a sitting area, a dining room, and an office.
Two guest houses adjacent to each other, of which one is a trullo, offer two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, and an outside dining pergola. They are accessible via a rosemary hedged passage leading to the the higher part of the property. The owner discovered that this part of the property sits on a fortified manmade stone wall, only partially remaining now. This special shape points to a Neolithic (6000 BC) horse shoe fortification and settlement, easy to defend from ancient invaders.
This luxury property has been restored to the highest standard and its peaceful setting makes for the perfect home in Puglia, Southern Italy.
About the ancient artifacts:
On the property Biface artefacts were found by the owner, also scrapers and other prehistoric tools. The first Bifaces were made between 300,000 – 26,000 years ago. These archeological findings show that nomadic Indo-European hunter-gatherers were here. We also know that on the territory of Ceglie Messapica alone, there are more than 300 caves for people to have sheltered.
