Holidays in Puglia, an exceptionally captivating region of beautiful Italy, evoke dreams of turquoise seas, chalky cliffs, charming Trulli dwellings, a delightful local cuisine rich in seafood and fresh produce, and an historic past with an abundance of architecture and tradition to explore and discover.
There are few places in all of Puglia with as noble a heritage as this elegant 18th century Villa, built in the Venetian style of Palladio by an aristocratic family with Venetian roots and businesses in silks, oils, and wine. Now beautifully restored and cared for by descendants of the original family, this beautiful home is available for you and your family or friends to enjoy in exclusivity.
The Villa sits in the midst of splendid Italian-style gardens where winding paths, cooling fountains, rustling waters, Roman, medieval and eighteenth century sculptures, and the scents of Mediterranean flora delight every sense. In addition, the garden offers a pavilion built in the early nineteenth century to house the family's incredible art collection. For more sporting pleasures there is an extra large and inviting pool.
