TASTEFULLY RESTORED TRULLO IN A QUIET RURAL SETTING NEAR OSTUNI IN PUGLIA

Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Ostuni - Villa Antonio

Large private 15m Swimming Pool, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Kitchen, Living Rooms

Villa Antonio is a trullo, a type of property found only in the region of Puglia in the heel of Italy. Its high conical roofs and heavy walls help to keep it fresh in the summer and warm in the winter.

To keep you cool outside it has a new 15metre 'infinity' swimming pool with a 50cm toddler's area set in gardens at the top of a hectare of fields sloping away into the Valley d'Itria at the front. At the back there is a large private sheltered barbecue area. To the side is the drive which winds its way from the gates where there is parking for 5 cars.

The main entrance is into the kitchen which has a large table for 8 people. An archway leads through to the living room which has a built-in sofa that converts to a 7th bed. Another arch leads to the 'snug', the room at the centre of the house, featuring a fireplace and 2 stone benches. Off the snug is the main bathroom, a double bedroom through an almost hidden arch by the fireplace and another bedroom with 2 bunk beds. From that bedroom a door leads to the master bedroom which has a very high conical ceiling and a pretty en-suite bathroom.

This area is for gourmets - the restaurants in the nearby towns serve typical regional food and are not expensive. But the shops and markets all sell the local produce so for the cooks the variety and quality is just amazing!

Set somewhat above sea level the area is slightly cooler than down at the sea so beach lovers can travel to a variety of beaches on the Adriatic coast and, after a day in the heat, retreat back to the hills where it is easier to sleep in the fresher air of the Vallet d'Itria. Alternatively you can enjoy the heat of the day at the villa and cool off in the pool.

PLEASE NOTE: HIGH SEASON BOOKINGS ARE SATURDAY-SATURDAY ONLY UNLESS BY SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT.

About Simon Proctor

An Italian-English couple we wanted to invest in a little bit of history of south Italy. Even though we live in England we intend to retire to Italy and the trullo represents our growing interest in the area where we intend to live.

Simon Proctor purchased this villa in 2010

Why Simon Proctor chose Ostuni

Villa Antonio has a history. We are in the process of researching it but it is mentioned in the Story of the Trullo for the uniqueness of its trullo cones.

What makes this villa unique

The walls of the trullo average 1metre thick - so in the summer it keeps cool even when it is 30-35degrees outside.

The fireplace-snug makes it so cosy.

The narrow opening nextto the fireplace leading to the lamia bedroom gives it the feeling of a secret room.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved everything about the villa, pool, surrounding area and location.



1. The Welcome Basket: It was just that and created a really good impression on arrival - we particularly loved the local olive oil and wine!

2. We were impressed with the outside security gates and new drive. Also the mossi-protection and security at all the doors and windows.

3. The very large patio and BBQ area.

4. Of course, the wonderful pool and pergola area - a big wow factor!

5. The bead curtain for the door.

6. We breakfasted on fresh figs from the tree (hope that was in order!).

7. The history and write-ups and recommendations that we had downloaded from your website.

8. Your revised website with all the new photos etc - definitely impressive.

If ever you dreamt of buying a holiday cottage in Italy this would be in your short list.
A fabulous trulli with the most beautiful swimming pool.
Outdoor BBQ or indoor eating ... both well catered for.
Can't not recommend this place enough.
The owners are pragmatic. The agent more than helpful.
Fantastic location.

Small paradize, lost in the middle of Puglia !

Amazing trulli, gorgeous swimming pool, place of charm, tranquillity and pleasure. Real Italy with food, wine, sea and great cities to visit ! The only point to be upgraded is the kitchen which could be more equipped. But no doubt a place to go !

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. You are right about the kitchen it is a bit 'rustic' in fact it is being fully rebuilt this winter with new cupboards, stove, oven, large fridge etc. But it will still retain the trullo charm with the original stone floors and wall. Please come back and see it when it is finished.

Villa Antonio, actually a 'trullo', is situated in the heart of the Valley d'Itria which lies between Ostuni, Martina Franca, Ceglia Messapica and Cisternino.

These nearby towns all have fine historic centres, market days, plenty of shops and arts festivals in the summer. Ostuni, known as the 'white city' and perched like a beacon on a hill, is a particularly popular tourist attraction with its multitude of narrow winding streets.

Villa Antonio is in a rural position high up between the areas of Gallante and Santoro.

The easiest way to get to it is via the main road, the SP14 which runs between Ostuni and Martina Franca.

At a crossroads 8km from Martina and 20km from Ostuni, one of the few on this road with traffic lights, where there is also the Gallante supermarket and bar, turn southwards on the Contrada Foggia di Sauro.

After 2km on this rough road on a right-hand bend there is a left turn uphill. Take this road which is single-track for 1km and, having passed houses on either side of the road, at the top of the hill just after a left hand bend are the gates for Villa Antonio on the right in front of you.

Notes PLEASE NOTE:
Bookings are Saturday to Saturday unless by special arrangement.
The villa is not on mains water therefore it needs to be delivered by lorry and is expensive so we try to manage water consumption. We simply ask you not to leave taps running and need to charge for very excessive consumption.

Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.

Notes:
The trullo also has two beautiful new cane-covered gazebos..one with large stone sofas (cushions provided!) and the other with a stone dining table. So you can eat and drink outside while being protected from the strongest rays of the sun. The trullo is not on mains water. Like all houses in the area water is stored in a large underground cistern which is new for summer 2013. The water is not suitable for drinking so you need to buy bottled water. If in the rare event that cistern runs empty you should call the agent to get him to order more water which comes in a 'water lorry'.
