About the villa
Sprinkled across the slopes above the wide sandy beaches of southern Puglia are small villages, where time has not stood still but seems to run at a rather more leisurely pace. Such is the setting for this beautiful new villa, set between the seaside village of Torre Vado and the inland village of Morciano, surrounded by its own sun-soaked olive groves, and built with contemporary facilities including air conditioning. Within the villa, the well-equipped kitchen with pretty tiles is open-plan to a comfortable and characterful sitting/dining room with beautiful vaulted ceilings. Access to the spacious master double bedroom is from one side of the sitting room. The other two spacious bedrooms are accessed from the opposite side near the dining area. All have French windows opening to the gardens. The young owners have taken great care to decorate their villa with interesting wooden pieces and beautiful decorative ceramics, typical of the area. Outside, one terrace is equipped with soft seating and the kitchen opens out to a further terrace for al fresco dining shaded beneath a pergola. The new infinity pool (finished in January 2020) has been sunk into the sunny gardens and there is also a characteristic ‘pajara’ a circular stone built structure in the gardens, typical of the area. Energetic guests can walk down to Torre Vado (uphill on the way back!) and the hillsides here are dotted with the characteristic circular ‘pajara’ structures, villages and amazing views. There are plenty of inexpensive restaurants locally and shops in the local village of Morciano or Torre Vado. A cluster of coastal villages, beaches with excellent lively beach clubs, ideal for enjoying sunset drinks and dinner and bays are within a very easy drive. Boat trips are available and for day trips, we recommend visiting Gallipoli, Otranto and Lecce. This beautiful new property is an excellent choice for an easy holiday in an authentic location.

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.
