Nestled within over two acres of olive and almond groves, this luxury villa for rent in Puglia was designed in the local architectural vernacular of traditional Pugliese homes.
Whitewashed limestone exteriors and interiors keep it simple, with stone flooring and a subtle palette of minimalist furnishings and decor that emphasize the connection to the land.

Within a few kilometers of the town of Carovigno and less than ten minutes drive to the sea, this villa in the Salento Peninsula region lies at the midpoint of Italy’s heel between both the Adriatic and Ionian Seas with lovely beaches on either side. Come for the amazing summer food festival in Carovigno at the end of July where the very best of the region is on offer and the Ceglie Messapica food fest in August and the d’Ostuni la blanche market on Saturdays. From Michelin starred restaurants to simple cafes and shops, the area is a foodie mecca.
The protected nature reserve and beaches of Torre Guaceto is within fifteen minutes as are the medieval villages of San Vito dei Normanni, Specchiolla and Carovigno. The port town of Brindisi (and final stop along the famed Appian Way) lies 20 minutes southeast while the stunning Baroque city of Lecce, known as the Florence of the South, is within 30 minutes.
The lovely UNESCO port town of Otranto and the Ionian seaside town of Gallipoli are worth a day trip drive while the White City of Ostuni, Martina Franca, Alberobello and the Valle d’Itria are all within a short drive.
