Renovated in 2014 by Goedele Desmet of Brussels-based Bob 361 Architects, this is a playful, contemporary reimagining of a traditional masseria.
Inside, all rooms have eclectic furniture, with Scandinanvian-inspired pieces by Hay and Muuto but also a few carefully curated from Ikea. This imaginative mix contributes to the villas’ ultra-modern but poetic appearance.
We love the abundant natural light, the gleaming polished concrete floors, the whitewashed interior stonework, the arched walls, the recessed staircases, and the windows that come in all shapes and sizes. The architecture is highlighted perfectly by cool pieces of contemporary art, neon signage that tells you exactly where you are, and an unexpected sculpted cow cabinet, reminding you that this home has a sense of humor.
From its two roof terraces, you have 180° views of the Adriatic, and from the vast kitchen window, a view of large gardens filled with olive and orange trees, and the landscape beyond.
And last but not least, there’s the extra-large swimming pool, with two outdoor showers, an outdoor kitchen and a barbecue on its L-shaped terraces. A great space for unwinding on warm summer days.
This villa for rent in Puglia is wonderfully peaceful but also located close to all local amenities. A great find in an increasingly popular region.
