Apulia – The property is located about 50 m from the harbor and the waterfront of the beautiful town of Santa Maria di Leuca, the district of Castrignano Cape, on the border of Apulia. "De finibus terrae" – the name derives from an ancient belief that this place thought to be the limit of all land and where, even today, the visitor arrives to attend the promontory, the embrace between two seas: Adriatic and Ionian. Santa Maria di Leuca, however, has also its history, a long history of rock dwellings, caves, crypts, churches, villas, castles, ancient olive trees and hidden coves in a blue sea like nowhere else.
