n 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 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.
