About the villa

Uniquely re-styled and extended, La Moresca’s mix of careful restoration and lively imagination is sometimes surprising, and always successful. The whitewashed, flat-topped ‘lamia’ building works wonderfully with the rough-hewn stone walls and clustered coned roofs of the original trulli. A twelve metre pool with a wade-in edge is staged amid huge rocks and small palms, in a terrace sprinkled with cushions and Moorish lanterns. And a large gazebo shades an al fresco living room, furnished with colourful fabrics and complete with a barbecue and food prep area. Within the high-spec house are very contemporary bathrooms with polished concrete floors, a smart and functional breakfast kitchen, a chic sitting room meandering through stone arches, and three stylishly uncluttered bedrooms, two of which open on to the gardens. Looking out to valley views, the villa is about 9km from the picturesque towns of Ostuni and Cisterino, and within easy reach of Ionian and Adriatic beaches.

This unique property is a long standing favourite with regular CV clients who appreciate the extensive gardens, the generous size and consistent standard of the bedrooms, the privacy and the quiet surroundings.

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.
