A delightful three-bedroom country house with a courtyard and swimming pool bathed in light and whiteness. Designed with graceful simplicity akin to its environmental surroundings. The courtyard is an extension of the house, a place where conversations begin at early day break and finish by night fall; a place where long lazy lunches are taken beneath the shade of the pergola then all chatter falls quiet as its occupants move into the cozy coolness of the living room.
In the evening the natural sunlight dims and the candles are lit. The olive groves, shrubbery and Mediterranean plants bring gentle wafts of their scent with the latter-day breeze, the courtyard assembles its guests to count the stars in the peacefulness of the moonlit sky.
Casale La Maison Blanche sits proudly on the elevated and panoramic crests of the Valle d’Itria, the home of the trullo, dairy farmsteads, olive trees and vineyards; and one of Puglia’s most attractive and popular areas for visitors. The valley primarily refers to the white hilltop towns of Cisternino, Locorotondo, Ceglie Messapica and Martina Franca. The charming market town of Cisternino being the nearest to Casale La Maison Blanche, with a drive of approximately 5kms.
For cyclists, walkers and trekkers, the nearby ‘Ciclovia dell’Acquedotto Pugliese’, a non-vehicle track, is conveniently located nearby and accessible to visitors to the Casale La Maison Blanche. The 500 km historic and original water system construction brought water to Puglia from Caposele in the early 20th century from the province of Avellino in the Campania district and runs through the Valle d’itria connecting the local towns.
