Puglia, a sea of olive groves

Elegant country properties for sale in Puglia, among the wonderful olive groves

A quick glance at the Apulian countryside is all you need to understand that olive trees are undoubtedly one of the landscape’s most characteristic elements.
The region may well be the area with the highest number of olive groves in the world.
You can see it with your own eyes at our country properties for sale in Puglia.
Here, nature is home to countless species of plants, trees and flowers… in short, the Apulian countryside is pure magic.

However, olive groves are not mere decoration: the amount of olive oil produced in Puglia accounts for 40% of Italy’s entire production, which means that olives play a key role in the regional economy.
Olives are so typical of this area that many different types of olive oil are produced: Puglia is home to four DOP areas of protected origin.
The taste of Apulian olives and olive oil is special and it’s not by chance that people from all over the world appreciate this product so much.
Olive trees and olive oil have extremely ancient origins and have always been considered precious: in 2500 BC the trade in olive oil was already flourishing and the product was used as an ointment and medication, while the branches were used to adorn the tombs of pharaohs.
Olives and olive oil today play an important role in the Mediterranean diet because they offer many healthy properties and benefits. Olive oil is used to preserve and season vegetables and other dishes (as well as olives). It is also used to prepare many typical recipes, such as orecchiette, focaccia and bruschetta, to name but a few!

You must have heard about the famous Mediterranean diet, typical of Southern Italy, which even became UNESCO heritage listed in 2013.
This diet includes a variety of foods and nutrients, which is exactly what makes it so healthy.
Cereals, pulses, fruit, vegetables and olive oil represent the main food groups; the consumption of fish, dairy products and wine is recommended in moderation, while meat is kept to a minimum.
A positive impact on health depends on the high consumption of vegetables (which reduces feelings of hunger) and a perfect balance between the nutrients. Several studies have shown that this way of eating can reduce the risks of cancer and heart disease. Blood pressure is lowered as well as levels of cholesterol, triglycerides and sugars in the blood. The consumption of cereals prevents constipation and colon disorders and, generally speaking, the Mediterranean diet provides our body with all the proteins, vitamins and minerals we need.
Apulian cuisine offers countless ways to combine these ingredients to create delicious recipes: your palate will be satisfied while your body, health and shape will be grateful.

Properties for sale in Puglia, the land of wine

A “tasty” life in our properties for sale in Puglia

Would you like to live in one of our elegant properties for sale in Puglia, in the unspoiled countryside, with every possible modern convenience? In touch with nature, ancient traditions and memories of the past….
The buildings that Apulia Property Design restores and builds are located in a land where millions of trees, orchards, olive groves and vines have been planted over the course of time.

For example, the history of the grapevine in Puglia is very ancient and it is said that the plant has always existed in this region. Its presence may even date back to the period preceding Greek colonisation, in the 8th century B.C. Many of the vines that are now considered to be indigenous were imported by the Greeks, who also introduced new methods of cultivation.
The Romans were equally keen on Puglian wine. Pliny the Elder and Horace, for example, wrote important accounts of cultivation techniques, expressing their love for the flavour of Puglia’s wines. Pliny described Puglia as “viticulosa” (i.e. rich in vines).
After a period of crisis due to the fall of the Roman Empire, the production of wine entered a new phase of success in the Middle Ages, thanks to the region’s monks. Since then, wine production has become one of Puglia’s most distinctive traits, so much so that, during the Renaissance, it was prized both abroad, particularly in France, and at the tables of society’s elite.
Unfortunately, phylloxera, then began to blight vines in Northern Italy and across Europe, leading Puglia to produce and export huge amounts of wine. Eventually phylloxera also reached Puglia, causing significant difficulties. Over the years to come, the substitution of local vines with new varieties and the founding of several wine cooperatives led to considerable wine production, although quality was neglected. It was not until after the Second World War that people began to realise the importance of quality in wine-making, but the full potential of local vines was not recognised until the 1990s.
Today, Puglia is one of Italy’s main producers in terms of quantity, which is why the region has taken on the role of a wine “reservoir”, not just for Italy, but also for Europe as a whole. There are many different grape varieties with great potential, such as Negroamaro, Primitivo and Uva di Troia, some of which have unsurprisingly become world-renowned.

A good reason, for wine lovers, to consider properties for sale in Puglia!

Wouldn’t it be magical to be sitting by the pool at your luxury property, sipping delicious wine amid Puglia’s vineyards, knowing that your drink comes from that very soil?
