About the villa

Villa Zenzero is a beautiful villa in lovely Puglia, designed with modern and bright living spaces and a heated, gated swimming pool. A lavender and rosemary-lined drive leads up to the front of the villa, the main entrance gently shaded beneath climbing wisteria. Inside, guests will discover traditional stone ceilings and archways, with each room furnished in a contemporary and light style. The open plan kitchen, indoor dining and sitting area is spacious and complete with a beautiful glass table with chairs. Just off the kitchen, a cosy lobby area with sofas and a TV offers the perfect spot to unwind in the evening. At the living room end of the villa, guests will find two double (super king size) bedrooms, each designed with a shower room en suite and opening to the gardens. More bedrooms can be found at the other end of the villa, including three twin rooms with plenty of space. These feature a shared bathroom with a shower, twin basins and free standing bath. 

The villa sits comfortably amidst five acres of olive groves, and is surrounded by traditional stone walls. Raised flowerbeds house a small lemon tree, diascia, plumbago and trailing plants. The outdoor kitchen and seating areas include a large dining table and food preparation area, with cushioned seats that offer the perfect space to watch the sunset with a drink in hand. A bar and food shop can be found a short 2.5km walk or drive away, whilst a good selection of supermarkets, shops, restaurants and amenities are also located 7km away in Cisternino or 9km away in Ostuni. Local places of interest include Ceglie Messapica, an enchanting town in the heart of the Itria Valley, and fascinating Martina Franca. Ostuni Train Station is just 11km away, whilst Brindisi and Bari airports are also in close proximity to the villa.

About the area

Puglia

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.

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.
