Peace in dry stone walls: austere villa in Salento, immersed in a private park

Spread the love

A villa in Salento, Puglia, surrounded by the variegated greenery of a park, a few kilometers from the Adriatic Sea: Villa Masseria la Margherita stands like a small fort, austere but welcoming, from the outside to the inside.

If Jane Austen’s novels weren’t set in the countryside of South West England but in the Mediterranean areas of South East Italy, this would probably be a perfect location to imagine the setting for her stories.

Villa Margherita opens up like a country villa suitable for contemplative souls, with large and bright spaces dedicated to reading, large stone fireplaces in the common areas and in one of the bedrooms, natural materials and large windows overlooking illuminated patios and areas of the garden.

Protected by a green space which is a real private park of about 20,000 square meters crossed here and there by dry stone walls typical of the Salento countryside, it presents itself with its ancient original structure;

the interiors are finely restored and alternate a classic style with the presence of objects and furnishings in natural materials, which increase the sense of relaxation, emptying the mind of what is not necessary for well-being.
