About Annette Chaplin
Life is London has always been very fast paced with retail showrooms, travelling to design fares and all the daily hassel of running a business. Puglia gave us the opportunity to re-claim ourselves, find tranquility, beauty in nature and to understand and live 'La Dolce Vita'.
Annette Chaplin purchased this villa in 2004
Why Annette Chaplin chose Francavilla Fontana
The relaxed life style we could create here made it the villa for us.
What makes this villa unique
Puglia is steeped in History and traditions of a past time, It fills, for many, something that is missing with the pace of life today. it allows you to kick back and chill, the life is simple, the food fabulous and the local wines......... It has the finest sandy beaches in Italy with the Ionian Sea being clear with hues of blue and green. It has many coves which ensure in the summer months that the sea is always warm. The Adriatic is cooler and the beaches are a mixture of sand and pebble.
The light here is incredible, so bright it naturally gives an endorphin kick when you wake.
