About the villa
Right at the heart of Italy’s ‘boot heel’, Lecce is a beautiful baroque town, known as ‘the Florence of the South’. Just 2km from superb restaurants in its 17th century sandstone streets, this striking family villa stands in tiered gardens, where huge lawns are shaded with ancient olive trees; shrubs and orange trees cluster round broad terraces; music adds mood to a shaded seating area beside the private pool; and guests need not even leave the grounds for a five-a-side football match. Adding to al fresco living, a huge curved and covered terrace overlooks the poolside, complete with stylishly furnished sitting and dining areas, and a summer kitchen with fridge, barbecue and wood oven. A second outdoor dining table basks in a sunny spot beside the house, and a door leads in from here to the villa’s sleek steel kitchen, with its arty lighting and a high arched ceiling. The house has an airy sitting room and study area in white with huge picture window, a smart and modern dining room, several (satellite) TV’s, contemporary shower rooms, and four charming bedrooms, individually designed. Offering peace and privacy just a quick drive or taxi drive into Lecce, it is 15 - 25km from a choice of great sandy beaches with beach clubs.
This villa is much appreciated by CV clients for the generous and equal sized rooms with high ceilings, fantastic pool area with outdoor kitchen, extensive gardens and the proximity to magnificent Lecce with excellent shopping and restaurants. Guests therefore have an opportunity to enjoy a country villa with the attractions of one of Italy's most beautiful cities within very easy reach.

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.
