Beautiful villa with swimming pool enclosed by a vast park, rich of luxuriant olive trees, typical of Salento, that offer fresh and peaceful shade from the summer hot sun. The house is built on 2 levels, ground floor and first floor, and on the outside it is provided with furnished pergolas where to enjoy relaxing moments surrounded by the natural environment.
Inside and on the ground floor, the Villa is conceived as a wide and elegant loft, with no division between the different parts of the house (except for the bedrooms on the upper floor) so to create a single, airy and bright living space, which develops in a continuum from the inside to the outside thanks to the wide glass windows. In the entrance hall, the big open staircase leads up to the first floor mezzanine and then to the sleeping area: 1 bigger double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower and Jacuzzi; 1 double bedroom with a queen-size bed (2,00m * 1,40m); 1 other standard double bedroom. The latter 2 bedrooms are smaller than the first one and share one bathroom with shower accessible from the mezzanine. Going back down on the ground floor, just under the mezzanine there is another large bathroom with 2 showers; whereas through the wall running along the staircase one gains access to an anteroom furnished with a double sofa-bed and then to another double bedroom. The other parts of the house develop around the entrance hall: the dining room with a round table with 10/12 seats; the kitchen island; the spacious living room with sofas and fireplace and a relax area where wide glass doors open under the outside beautiful patio, equipped with garden furniture (10-seat table, sofas and armchairs). From here, walking further on crossing through the garden, one gets to the swimming pool area, encircled by luxuriant vegetation and provided with a shaded furnished pergola, beach umbrellas and sun-beds.
The house is very comfortable, with very high-standard finishing and décor. Being immersed in a very well-kept natural environment adds to the quality and charm of its atmosphere. It is perfect for those who love the peace and quiet of nature, but at the same time appreciate being at a short drive from the seaside and from the main towns of the area.
