BFB's Overview

The Houses of San Galare are set above a stunning valley of olive trees and vineyards, 4 km from Cisternino, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. The two houses are joined by a gravelled path, and combined, can sleep up to 8 people.

Casa Cicerali is a traditional stone farmhouse and Casa San Galare is a contemporary take on a traditional lamia,with a blend of minimalist architecture and mid-century lighting creating a serene and airy interior, finished with grey stone flooring and lime plaster.

A dry stone walled area, lined with oak and olive trees, lit with subtle lighting in the branches and walls, provides dining for 8 people. The stonehouse property is a restored 2 bedroom farmhouse, with open plan living and kitchen area. It combines the architectural integrity of the original building with contemporary design. The house is semi detached but not overlooked. In the surrounding 5 acres of land, there are numerous fruit trees, an almond grove and olive trees separated by meadow and dry stone walls. A bespoke teak decked swimming pool sits between the houses along the gravel path.

Accommodation Overview

In Casa San Galare, the house is simply, elegantly, but comfortably furnished. The kitchen's clean lines hide all mod cons including a handy washing machine an impressive blender and liquidiser for the chef in the family, which are also handy if baby is weaning.
The single-storey design makes it particularly suited to little ones, with no need for stairgates, whilst a small stash of toys, books, DVDs and a baby bath, cot and highchair add to the Baby-Friendly appeal. With 2 bedrooms one of which is a king sized double and the other a standard double, both with room for cots. There is a relaxation room with a TV/DVD. With views of the valley and the ever-changing light of the sky, the sun rises onto the cantilevered terrace and sets in full view of the rooftop seating area.

Casa Cicerali offers a cosy, two bedroom farmhouse villa set on one level. The bedrooms are split into one double and one twin room which share a family bathroom with shower (baby bath provided). There’s an open plan kitchen, dining and living room which are all comfortable and well equipped. The kitchen offers a large free standing fridge/freezer, oven, hob, coffee machine, dishwasher, kitchen aid and washing machine. The living room area has an open fire, TV, DVD player plus small selection of child friendly DVDs and iPod dock. Both properties benefit from wifi and Bluetooth speakers.

Casa San Galare is available for rental together with Casa Cicerali from June through to September, for groups up to 8.
