Selva di Fasano was developed mainly in the 1960s and became the Capri’s of Puglia and here you can find beautiful multi million mansion properties, mixed with the traditional trulli, modern villas of any sizes, and apartments. The area is the heights above the town of Fasano and the altitude is up to 400 meters above sea level. The mainly forestry area is protected with strict planning regulations.
There is an attractive micro climate and the temperature is about four degrees cooler than at sea level. The high altitude and hills makes also the breezes stronger and the combination gives a very pleasant micro climate during the hot summer months and quite a few residents in the town have summer houses up in Selva for this reason. Also a large number of properties are owned by North Italians who come during the holiday season, and more and more foreigners are discovering this exceptional quality of living over here.
Selva has a village center with grocery stores, restaurants, cafes and bars, pharmacy, butchers, hairdressers, the tennis club, post office and the famous Trullo church. In Selva and within 10 minutes drive you have four hotels, and 12 restaurants, some of them also open wintertime.
Every summer there are many musical and market events, including the open mass celebrating San Donato every year in early August, held in one of the ravines, where it was a monastery in the 18th century, and at the same time in August, a street market is held.
The population summer time is about 5,000 and in winter about 500. Selva has on the easterly side panoramic views to the Adriatic Sea and on the westerly side, panoramic views over the beautiful Canale di Pirro valley, which is part of the famous valley DÍtria. From the top, you can see all the way to Alberobello and Locorotondo.

The distance to the nearest beaches is about 15 km (17-20 minutes) downhill to either Capitolo with its many famous beach clubs on sandy beaches, or Savelletri, a small charming fishing village. Here is nice to take a pre-dinner stroll along the shore, having a drink at a seaside terraced bar and dine at one of 10 restaurants serving fresh seafood, fish and vegetables.
