We offer the discerning traveller privacy, tranquillity, total relaxation and a gorgeous swimming pool. Spacious, well-appointed accommodation with private swimming pool (shared with the owners). The apartment consists of double bedroom with four-poster bed, dressing room, living room (with sofabed), shower room and fully equipped kitchen (electric oven, gas hob, refrigerator, washing machine, dining table and chairs). In addition, a welcome hamper will greet you on arrival; a selection of goodies to get you started - essentials such as Extra Virgin Olive Oil, condiments, garlic, milk, eggs, bread, etc, and there will be one or two surprises as well. Self-contained and fully independent, La Casa Lavanda at Villa Oleandro benefits from a wealth of outdoor space for relaxing and alfresco dining while enjoying views to the Adriatic. The 300 sq metre stone/grass Upper Terrace that fronts Villa Oleandro has three pergolas covered with grape vines and flowering plants that provide much-welcome shade and is refreshed by Adriatic breezes. The terrace has a private area where guests can relax, a barbecue for outdoor cooking and a marble-topped table for alfresco dining that in high summer enjoys sun at breakfast time and shade until late afternoon when the sun returns with the full warmth of sunset. A staircase from the stone/grass Upper Terrace descends to the Sun Terrace (Middle Earth) with ample space for sunbathing and more outdoor dining options. Further steps lead from the Sun Terrace to the 250 sq metre Pool Terrace. To the side of the Pool Terrace is an informal grassy terrace with a small fruit orchard. The property is 100 metres above sea-level and about 3 km from the beautiful Calenella Bay. Set in 4 hectares of olive groves and pine woodland Tenuta Villa Oleandro is a haven of tranquility with glorious views upto the Foresta Umbra and down to the Adriatic Sea. Olive farmers permitting, in the summer months our valley enjoys breathtaking peace and quiet! Places of interest, shops, markets & restaurants can be found in nearby Vico del Gargano, Rodi Garganico, Peschici and all along the extensive coastline. To find out more about the Gargano visit our Villa Oleandro eu website. Villa Oleandro is referred to by the locals as a 'toretta' (little castle) because of its impressive terraces and prominent position overlooking the valley that passes from the Foresta Umbra down to Calenella Bay. In our corner of paradise, surrounded by an ocean of olive trees and pine woods, we farm 280 olive trees producing our very own Extra Virgin Olive Oil.More

Here the fresh fruit and vegetable market is a marvel of choice and colour and the indoor fresh fish market a revelation and education. The excellent local butchers, bakers and mini supermarkets complete the food supply options and then, of course, there are numerous pizzerias and restaurants in which to savour the local cuisine. San Menaio 15 mins, Rodi and Peschici 20 mins and Vieste 30 mins offer a further plethora of choices. The Gargano in Puglia, known as the spur of Italy, is a little known region that is packed full of marvels, natural an
