Beautiful villa with swimming pool set in 2 hectares of olive groves and fruit trees orchards, including fig, almond and pear, making it a charming bucolic setting.
Surrounded by ancient drystone walls and white walls, the property combines the traditional characteristics of a typical lamia and masseria -both unique to Apulia- with tastefully chosen pieces of furniture, thus creating a beautiful combination of traditional and contemporary décor styles. A series of winding white gravel paths contrasts sharply with the intense red colour of the terrain, somewhat embracing the house; given its superb natural environment, it really provides a peaceful and refreshing corner where to unwind and recharge mental and physical batteries, away from by the stress of everyday life.
The property is comprised of two distinct parts: the main body and the annex.
Annex: beautiful "trullo-lamia" with traditional barrel-vaulted ceiling, composed of 1 double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower, fireplace, a vintage white wardrobe, various design objects. The bathroom has one sink, toilet and bidet; the spacious shower corner, in polished concrete, offers a nice view of the garden through a window.
Main body: in the sleeping area, a vast space with lime painted barrel-vaulted ceiling has been divided by a separating wall, open leghtwise at the top, and with an archway shaded by curtains serving as access to the two adjoined double bedrooms (1 big and 1 smaller). The bigger double bedroom has a spacious wall-wardrobe. A small passageway, adjoined to it, gives access to the bathroom (with two sinks, toilet, bidet and a beautiful bathtub in polished concrete). Please note that the only way of access to the smaller room is by passing through the bigger one; in addition, in the sleeping area there are no separating doors between the different rooms.
