Villa Il Fierro is a charming little villa with private pool, located in the countryside of Salve, which is just a few kilometers away from some amazing sandy beaches of the Ionian coast of Salento, as for example the renowned “Maldive”. The house is a typical “lamia”, i.e. a traditional building made of dry stones, that stands on a plot of land widely covered by an olive grove, where there is also the owners’ private dwelling. The latter, however, is not available for rent and the owners will not be on the premises alongside the guests, who will therefore make exclusive use of the outdoor space and of the pool area as well, in total privacy.
The house is characterized by a rustic architecture, with whitewash walls or ashlar stone walls, tastefully matched by the choice of some particular old pieces of furniture elegantly set side by side with more modern ones. One enters in a spacious living room with barrel-vaulted ceiling, furnished with a double sofa-bed ideal for kids, and in part designed as kitchen and dining area. From here, one accesses a double bedroom with en-suite shower-room and with a French door overlooking outside; the dry-stone walls and the roof beams in this room create a warm and cozy atmosphere.
Outside, there are various nice shaded areas, both next to the house and farther towards the pool area, equipped with garden furniture. The pool area extends length-wise a few meters from the building, past a lovely little vegetable garden, and it is provided with sun-beds and beach umbrellas. Its detached position from the house as well from the trees around allows for a beautiful “full sky” effect.
Its characteristics as well as the surrounding context make Villa Il Fierro the perfect home-away-from-home for those who long for the quiet of the countryside; for those wishing to discover the pleasure of waking up to the fresh scent of soil, grass and wild flowers; for those dreaming of taking a break from the urban noise and readjusting their ears to the natural sounds such as the bees buzzing, the birds chirping, and the wind gently blowing through the olive trees.
