Il Tempo Ritrovato is a luxury Apulian property with five bedrooms and bathrooms that has been beautifully restored and is now for sale. The terrain spreads over 5 hectares of land that offers enchanting garden passages, rolling hills, and an ancient Messapian stone fortification where archeological artifacts were discovered by its owner. The property features a combination of restored structures including trulli, lamia, and newly built space.
The space consists of a main building and an annex that connects to a set of gust cottages by an illuminated pathway. This luxury property has been restored to the highest standard and its peaceful setting makes for the perfect home in Puglia, Southern Italy.
The property has a number of unique features including an arched entryway, the landscaped garden passages, a garage, a 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, one is a trullo and one a lamia, offer two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, and an outside dining pergola. They are accessible via a rosemary hedged passage leading to a lightly more elevated 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.
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. To find out more about who the Messapians were – click here.
