About the villa

The main house and the former stable buildings of this villa have been carefully restored and are a sight to behold. With bounds of indoor and outdoor space, this villa is ideal for a large group or family get-together. 

On the ground floor of the villa, through the entrance where David Tremletts contemporary art is showcased, guests are welcomed by the dining area and staircase that leads to a mezzanine workspace area. Further on there is a kitchen with traditional and rustic style interiors, and a large living area with comfortable furnishings, an open fireplace and french doors that lead to the courtyard. Two double king sized bedrooms are also situated on this floor; with shower room en suites and direct access to the outdoor area. 

To the side of the main building, the stables hold all the remaining bedrooms. The former stables (have 4 twin bedrooms (which can be made up as doubles upon request), a more compact twin bedroom (best to be used as a double) facing the pool and 1 double opening to the parking area, all with shower rooms en suite.

Also situated in the grounds, is a shaded lounge area and al fresco dining space complete with built in barbecue and preparation area.

About the area


Average weather

Italy’s sun-kissed south is remote and quiet, with a gorgeous coastline and perfect summer weather that make relaxing in your villa that teeny bit better. Go beyond the lazy villa days, and this southern beauty has a wealth of culture and history that’s just waiting to be explored. Towns here are UNESCO-listed and its tiny trulli houses are world-famous. Discover an olive-tree studded countryside, relax in rural masserias, admire mysterious works of architecture and spend every day indulging in the most simple, but soul-stirring, food.


Please note that there is a European tourist tax payable on arrival. Further details will be advised prior to arrival.

Having a barbecue in Italy is one of the best ways to cook your food but you may find that due to long drought periods in high season barbecuing may be restricted in some areas. You will be informed if this happens by your house staff or local representative.
