About the villa

This magnificent modern villa is set amongst olive trees, plumbago and other shrubs close to the coast, mid-way between Otranto and Santa Maria di Leuca, just 2.4km from excellent restaurants, amenities and shops in the picturesque village of Spongano. Beautifully furnished in contemporary elegant Italian style, its white walls form a blank backdrop for interesting works of art and smart soft furnishings.

The layout is very straightforward. The entrance is into a central open plan reception room with modern, well equipped kitchen with island, stylish dining and sitting area opening to the dining terraces at the rear of the property. To the left and right, a hallway on each side leads to three bedrooms and two shower rooms in each part. On one side, a double bedroom with en suite and a further double bedroom and study with single bed sharing a further shower room. The bedrooms are all of a good size with top quality beds and well-appointed shower rooms. Affording equal emphasis to al fresco living, the villa boasts a large shaded terrace for dining outside, with stylish seating. Adjacent to the dining area there is an outside shower and kitchen area with plancha grill, small fridge and table tennis is also available in the gardens.

The villa is set amongst olive trees and is in a very private setting. Steps lead up from here to the roof terrace for a different perspective over the gardens. The charming village of Spongano, with an excellent restaurant, Trattoria Picalo, is within a very quick drive and there are further restaurants (also offering takeaway options) in the village. This is a very central location for those who would like to enjoy wonderful authentic  restaurants, stunning coastline,  beaches,  beach clubs and picturesque  historic towns of Castro, Otranto, Gallipoli in this very quiet and unspoilt corner of southern Italy.

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.
