Despite being just a stone’s throw from the sea, you’ll feel as though you’re in the heart of the countryside at La Piccola. Surrounded by verdant olive groves and sweeping farmland, your traditional stone villa is a little luxury oasis amidst the unspoilt, Puglian landscape.
The old farmhouse has been lovingly restored to its former glory, and then some, with elegant furnishings that bring a splash of Italian glamour to the place. Original features, such as the exposed stone archways and beautiful tiled floors, have been preserved and the new décor is subtle and stylish so as not to overpower the building’s impressive history. The living room and kitchen dining room are linked via double doors, which creates one big, airy space that is perfect for socialising.
Head outside, through the pretty shuttered blue doors and you’ll find a wraparound terrace which is covered on one side to house a lovely al fresco dining area – complete with fuchsia flowers crawling the pergola columns. From there, the expansive lawn stretches out towards the sea and the Pettolecchia Il Lido beach club, which you’ll have access to during your stay.
To the side of the villa, a large, heated swimming pool is surrounded by a patio with sun loungers, umbrellas and even a well-equipped bar and wood-fired pizza oven perfect for all your tastebud’s needs.
