About the villa

A perfect place for an authentic Italian experience, this impressive family villa is secluded in six acre grounds, encircled with fencing and dry stone walls, and encompassing mature olive groves, and a vegetable garden. Oleanders line the driveway to the house, where a gated entry courtyard has a central fountain and arched cloisters, and a spacious outer courtyard, fully enclosed for privacy, focuses on an inviting infinity pool. Set in a stone paved sunbathing terrace which is hemmed with lawns and herb borders, the pool is overlooked by a large gazebo with shaded sitting and dining areas. An exterior staircase leads to the roof terrace, while, within the cool stone villa, stylishly furnished interiors include three double rooms, a fourth children's bedroom and an open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting room in modern monochrome. 

Shops and a great bakery can be found in Carpignano, and inexpensive informal family friendly restaurants can also be found in Carpignano and in and around other local villages. Many local villages host atmospheric food festivals and concerts. Beautiful sandy beaches including Alimini and Torre dell'Orso with beach clubs are within easy driving distance and surfing, kite surfing, SUP, kayaking can be enjoyed. Day trips on yachts can be enjoyed from Otranto during the season. Cycling is also very popular and bicycles (with guides if required) can also be hired. Salento, this area of southern Puglia is a unspoilt pocket of southern Europe dotted with beautiful towns, villages and superb restaurants. Interesting half day trips include visiting the picturesque old town and beaches of Otranto and Gallipoli and the magnificent baroque town and upmarket shopping of Lecce.  

For the 2021 season, all bedrooms have been refurbished with paler, more neutral furnishings.

About the area

Puglia

Average weather

If a building can be a symbol for a whole region, then the trullo stands for Puglia—also known as ‘Apulia’ in English. Think of a Puglia villa holiday and those round, whitewashed limestone buildings with their comical, conical roofs always spring to mind. But there’s more to the region that is the narrow heel of Italy’s boot than trullo country around Alberobello. Discover baroque beauty in Lecce, Emperor Frederick II’s mysterious architecture at the Castel del Monte, and total relaxation on a Puglia villa stay in a rural Masseria.

Essential Information

Please note that there is a European tourist tax payable on arrival to the House Manager. This only applies to guests over 12 years and the amount varies from €1 .50 to €5 per person and is set by the local council. 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.
