Villa Ombrosa

VILLA OMBROSA - a house for all seasons 

In many ways Villa 'Ombrosa' is a truly remarkable house. Placed at the slope of a dune, it has two levels. From the romantic Mediterranean garden, you cross the broad courtyard with the shady terrace and enter the spacious living room with dining area and state-of-the-art kitchen. Behind the living-dining room lays the sauna area with a comfortable bathroom - brilliant in winter when the sea might be a little chilly.

A convenient staircase leads you to the bedrooms and bathrooms on the upper level. Thanks to the hillside position the master bedrooms have an exit to a private terrace, facing the upper part of the garden. The Villa is surrounded by greenery and blooming flowers, high pines donate soothing shade. In the garden, you can relax in many cozy places, close to a rippling fountain...

The Villa 'Ombrosa' has currently being completely renovated and rebuilt. It now presents itself as a completely new, luxurious holiday villa with 3 double and 1 youth bedrooms, 3 comfortable baths (roomy shower, sink, bidet and toilet), a Finnish sauna and a spacious living room with integrated kitchen and open fireplace. Satellite-TV (Astra & Hotbird), DVD player and stereo system with a selection of DVDs and CDs are there for the guests. For the sportive, the table tennis might be attractive and the bicycles invite for trips through the picturesque surroundings. Enjoy your barbecues on the terrace under the pergola or in another idyllic corner of the Mediterranean garden. Or spend your days on the beautiful natural beach of Monaco Mirante, it is only 200 steps away, crossing natural dunes (nature reserve). In the cooler times of the year, after a long walk along the beach (crowned by a refreshing bath?), you will appreciate the deeply relaxing Finnish sauna on the ground floor of the villa.

Tasteful ceramic dishes and enough wine and water glasses, cutlery, kitchen utensils, and the like contribute to a positive holiday mood. Here you can fully enjoy your vacation from the first moment. At your arrival your holiday home will be spotless and tidy, your beds made with fresh linen, ... and on the table you will find, as a little welcome, your first bottle of Primitivo, the local red wine that is now highly esteemed by connoisseurs. Leave everything behind and enjoy!

If you send us by e-mail your shopping list, you will find everything you need, for example, for your first dinner in your refrigerator.

The Villa Ombrosa lies in the quiet little settlement Monaco Mirante, just opposite our 'Oasi di Monaco Mirante', also offered in this catalogue. The Villa meets the highest standards in terms of comfort and quality of its finishing and equipment.

The quiet little agglomeration of Monaco Mirante lies on the Gulf of Taranto, 3 km southeast of the beach resort and small seaport Campomarino, on the Ionian Sea. Our romantic Mediterranean garden is surrounded by a coastal landscape: dunes, beach and sea in the front, gardens, vineyards and olive groves at the back. On narrow streets winding their way through vinyards and olive trees more than a hundred years old, you can reach the typical Apulian town of Maruggio with its friendly and hospitable inhabitants in a few minutes by bicycle. Here, you find all you need for your vacation. The larger cities of Lecce, Taranto and Brindisi, all well worth a visit, are less than 1 hour by car away. Coming from the north (Rome, Napoli, Bari), you follow the Adriatic highway all the way to Taranto, then it is less than an hour to Monaco Mirante. The airports of Brindisi and Bari are about 60 or 100 mins respectively away.

Enjoy your holidays from the very first moment on. Your holiday home is spotlessly clean and well appointed, your beds are made and as your introduction to the delights of Puglia you will find your first bottle of local red wine welcoming you on the table. If you want, send us a shopping list and you'll find everything you need for your first Italian meal in the kitchen. Anything else we can do? No problem!

We had a fantastic time at Ombrosa during July 2008. The house was newly renovated to a great standard and we really appreciated the lovely garden and terraces as well as bicycles and table tennis provided. The beach was superb and just a 2 minute walk away and never crowded (but more busy in weekends).

The people of Campomarino and Maruggio were welcoming and accomodating - even if we didn't speak any Italian and there even was a little grocery store just opposit the house where we could buy essentials such as freshly slized ham for breakfast and the after beach ice cream.

We were vacationing with friends who rented some of the other properties in the area (Villa I Tamarigi and Villa La Barca) and we all had a great time.

We would not hesitate recommending Villa Ombrosa and Monaco Mirante to any of of our friends.
