This gorgeous villa with pool is situated in Santa Maria di Leuca, close to the village of San Gregorio, on top of a hill overlooking the bay of “Felloniche”, with a breathtaking view over an olive grove which stretches down to the sea. Thanks to its distinctive large glass windows and an internal cloister, the house is flooded with light and is in perfect harmony with the rocky landscape which surrounds it.
The villa is made totally from natural stone, as the drystone walls enclosing the property, is situated in a 10.000 sqm land surface. It includes a sleeping area with 3 double bedrooms, one of which is very large, 3 bathrooms (1 with bath; 1 with shower; 1 with bath and shower), a living area with a dining room and a dining table with seating for 8/10 people, a large living room with fireplace, couches and Bali furniture, and a large, fully equipped kitchen area (dishwasher included). The livin area surrounds an exquisite glass paned cloister with stone flowerbeds, where a secular olive tree has been planted, thus becoming the central feature of the living area. Two of the four large cloister glass windows delimitate the transit areas which connect the living area to the dining area. The kitchen is partitioned from the living area. The dining room leads into the sleeping area, which features high quality parquet flooring and an elegant access corridor to the 3 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms. All the rooms are equipped with large sliding glass doors opening into the garden.
A design wood and steel staircase leads from the cloister up to a stunning panoramic terrace-solarium fully equipped with sunbeds and lounge chairs, and with a lovely swimming pool (2m x16m), designed so that it can be covered with wood planks in order to utilize, when desired, the whole of the available surface of the terrace. The terraced configuration of the property also allows access to the solarium from the garden. Additionally, an outdoor area with a pergola, a dining table and couches is located in front of the living room. Several equipped areas with gazebos and cushioned couches are scattered in other parts of the garden. A stunning ‘meditation’ courtyard with a high drystone wall is also part of the property.
Note: the stairs in the inside cloister lead to a basement with a laundry room and washing machine, a storage room and a pool machine room. All the rooms in the villa (except the bathrooms) feature a spectacular sea view and are air-conditioned. The villa's caretaker lives in a small dépendance which is located about 150 m from the main building but do not compromise its privacy.
