General

Villa Borgata, close to Cisternino, comfortably sleeps six adults with spectacular swimming pool and outside area.

Looking for a realm of tranquillity but need the sophistication of a dynamic and cultural environment? Villa Borgata is located between two dimensions; the calmness of a countryside location, a small hamlet – “borgata” – and within a short ride of the market town of Cisternino and the baroque beauty of Martina Franca.

The trulli inherited by the owners, Giovanna and Enrico, come from a long line of succession, rejuvenating the trulli over the years with modern advantages and accessories whilst maintaining its originality. To the extent that the hamlet in which the property is located, is host to an annual festival, in August, to which the occupants of the trulli are obliged to partake as caretakers and representatives of Villa Borgata! An unprecedented occasion to be personally involved in the local celebrations.

The trulli bestow one of the grandest and most impressive swimming pools in our line of holiday homes. Furnished for comfort, relaxation and self-absorption!

Couples or families of all dimensions welcome. Enjoyment guaranteed for all lovers of nature, social and historical culture, pugliese food and wine.

Further details of the indoors:

Villa Borgata sleeps six guests comfortably with three doubles. Bedrooms are well furnished with traditionally built in units for wardrobes and ample space for your clothes and accessories. There are two family bathrooms, both with bath and shower. If serving cocktails for family and friends is your idea of relaxation and fun, then the bar will come as pleasant source of entertainment. The property is elegantly furnished throughout. A hamper personally selected by the owners awaits your arrival.

Further details of the outdoors:

The trulli are located in a quiet neighbourhood in the countryside of the market town of Cisternino, in the direction of Martina Franca. The locality is perfect for cycling or walking. The pool side draws centre stage with comfortable rattan seating beneath the covered veranda and sunloungers circling the pool surround.

Cisternino is a cyclist's haven. With the development of the "acquedotto" cycle path, cyclists can enjoy both nature and security as the path is dedicated to cyclists and walkers.

Pick up the trail from Cisternino and explore the countryside with breathtaking views and spectacular scenery; a number of small farms feature on the track with vineyards, olive and fruit trees - separarted by low drystone walling.

For racket ball enthusiasts we have a tennis court with two open air clay courts and one indoor hard core. Tennis coaches are on hand with teachings in English or Italian or book a court with a friend and enjoy the clubhouse hospitality.

Cisternino is within easy driving distance of the Adriatic coastline giving way to a host of sea faring sports activities including parasailing, water ski-ing, banana boating and much more in the port of Savelletri.

If golfing is your way to get some fresh air and exercise, there are also a number of golf courses to choose from, the nearest being at San Domenico in Fasano.

Culture and history info

Culture and history info

Cisternino sits primely in the historic and preserved area of the Itria Valley (in Italian: Valle d'Itria), known for its prehistoric conical, dry stone roundhouses called trulli, which are preserved under UNESCO safeguards due to their cultural significance. The town and countryside are peppered with dry stone walls (muretti a secco) that hold tightly within its fertile soil from which the town produces its food and wines.

During the 18th and 19th centuries Cisternino flourished after nearly 200 years of Spanish rule but the town still relied on its agricultural dominance to grow in fiscal richness. Today, the town's popularity is rooted in its respect of the oldest culinary traditions using natural ingredients.

A market town with foundations in agriculture and crafts, but in recent years it has become a popular tourist destination attracting people from around the world to take a stroll through the old town's winding streets, meandering amidst the closely knitted white washed houses with decorated balconies.

At the centre of the old town shadows the old clock tower, known as "the sitting room of the town". The piazza holds numbers of festivals devoted to music, folk and political events. The main entrance to the town, Borgo, was through the Porte Grande and to the east through Porta Piccola.

Typical local dishes include the broad bean purée with wild chicory (fave e cicorie selvatiche), orecchiette con braciole e polpette (a particular shape of pasta with tomato sauce, meatball and beef chop) and "bombette" (a type of roasted pork meatball) are three typical dishes of Cisternino cuisine.
