The property is in Casarano in the province of Salento, the most southern province of the region of Puglia in the south-east of Italy. Salento is famous for its beaches who nothing to envy from the Maldives.
The property itself is a first-floor apartment. The ground floor is occupied by a medical clinic. The building is unfinished but gas, water and an electric system has already been installed. All it needs is the pavement, tiling, doors and windows and lighting, bathroom and kitchen instalment.
The seaside resort can be reached 15 minutes by car, the property itself could be rented out for commercial use too like offices. For example, the ground floor is occupied by a medical clinic and so there is would make a great investment property.
The Salento is home to some of Italy's loveliest towns and cities: the sea-front fortified gems of Gallipoli and Otranto, the creamy baroque sophistication of Lecce and the luxurious seaside Liberty pleasures of Leuca.
But the Salento is also full to brimming with small sleepy towns that are off the tourist trail but greatly worth visiting for their unspoilt historic centres and their unassuming genuineness. Examples include Specchia and the so-called Greek towns of Calimera, Carpignano Salentino, Castrignano dei Greci, Corigliano d’Otranto, Cutrofiano, Martano, Martignano, Melpignano, Soleto, Sternatia and Zollino.
These towns - around 20km south of Lecce - preserve the Salento's strong historic ties with Greece, dating back thousands of years. The local dialect, 'Grika', and many of the area's gastronomic, cultural and religious traditions have evident Hellenic roots which are celebrated with frequent festivals, including the hugely popular and energetic Notte della Taranta.
The Salento's hinterland plays a fundamental role in Italy's agricultural economy, producing enomous quantities of excellent olive oil and full-bodied, robust wines, such as Primitivo di Manduria and Salice Salentino.
It is the long and varied coastline, however, that is the major attraction for the area's tourist industry.
Home to some of Italy's loveliest beaches and most dramatic rocky coastline, the Salento is a haven for sea lovers. From the southernmost tip near Leuca, running up the west coast to Gallipoli and beyond, is a vast almost non-stop strip of paradisiacal golden sand and transparent azure waters. To the east, the Adriatic coastline is more varied, offering sandy beaches, Karstic grottoes, chalk cliffs and salt-water lagoons.
