About the villa

Enjoying the tranquillity of its rural setting, and placed amid three acres of olive groves, with drifts of meadow flowers beneath the trees, this beautiful house is the creation of local artisan stonemasons, using the pale Leccese stone for the cloisters and vaulted ceilings of its very traditional structure. A charming choice for a group of friends or family, the light and airy villa has four double bedrooms, each with en suite bath or shower, and all with direct access to the spacious courtyard garden. An open-plan living space includes a kitchen/diner and sitting area, all furnished for comfort with a contemporary twist on country style, and there is air conditioning throughout the house. With loungers around the lovely pool, the courtyard also has a barbecue and pizza oven, and al fresco dining under the pergola could be even more leisurely with pre-bookable cook service.

This impressive contemporary property is much appreciated by CV clients for the consistent standard and generous size of the bedrooms and shower rooms, the very private courtyard, large pool and the quiet surroundings.

Shops and a great bakery can be found in Carpignano, and inexpensive 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.

About the area


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.

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.
