Casa Campia

The architectural lines and beautiful interiors of the two buildings that make up Casa Campia are a perfect blend of Italian and Moroccan influences

Casa Campia is an ingenious renovation of a former water tower and a small chapel that was originally a stable. The property's fabulous ridge-top setting looks over the olive groves and vineyards of Puglia's beautiful Salento region, far south in Italy’s heel.

The tower contains a sleek kitchen and living room on the ground floor and a bedroom and bathroom upstairs, while a wrap-around portico provides lots more shaded living space outside. Just across the garden is the former chapel that has a large double room and an en-suite bathroom under its beautiful stone arches.

While the Italian architectural lines and natural materials of the buildings are the stars of the show, the pared-back interiors and exterior seating spots look to Moroccan influences, with cushions and rugs in jewel colours.

Indoor-outdoor living is easy here and guests could happily spend most of their time lazing in hammocks, splashing in the pool and dining on the delicious food of the region. But that would be to miss out on the stunning coastline, the baroque splendour of Lecce and Nardò and visits to wonderful vineyards producing the celebrated wines of the area.

Rooms description


The property has two bedrooms. In the former chapel, which was originally a stable, the king-size double bed is in a beautiful stone arched niche and the tall, A-frame, wooden ceiling is painted white, providing a calm and inviting space. The textures of the stone, the wood, and the rattan pendants, as well as a pop of colour in the cushions, are all the decoration required. Double metal-framed glass doors lead to the garden. The double bedroom in the tower and its accompanying bathroom are stacked above the living area with steps from the bedroom leading up to the bathroom. The room has a striped Moroccan rug and bright cushions to add colour, texture and comfort to the beautifully calming space.


There are three bathrooms. The upstairs bathroom in the tower has a freestanding tub as well as a shower. The clean lines of the bath tub and the glass screens either side are softened by a bright Moroccan rug on the floor and a hot pink Berber floor cushion.

The en-suite in the former chapel has a shower and double basins. High performance fixtures and fittings sit beautifully in this simple arched space.

There is a further shower room on the ground floor of the tower.


Occupying one end of the living space on the ground floor of the tower, the monochrome kitchen is a sleek, sophisticated affair. The complementary textures of the gloss white cabinetry, the marble countertop, the large stone arch and the black barstools make this an elegant space. It is expertly equipped so guests can do culinary justice to the fabulous local produce, and metal and glass doors lead to the perfect al fresco dining spot under the portico.

Living rooms

On the ground floor opposite the kitchen, the sitting area is cosy and simple. A long, comfy sofa, whitewashed ceiling beams and a seagrass pendant make this a perfect indoor snoozing, reading or chatting spot. Double doors either side lead to the garden where there is a whole load more lounging potential, either on the inbuilt sofa with its floor cushions and pair of wooden swings, or in the hammocks under the pergola or on any of the various chairs that make the most of this beautiful space.

Other rooms



The property is cleaned between guests’ stays, and more frequently on request. The pool and garden are maintained throughout the year.

This property is not specifically suitable for less mobile guests.


Casa Campia has lots of outside space, accessed from both sides of the tower and by double doors from the former chapel. Clever landscaping means that the terraced garden with its pretty stone walls is full of different spaces and interesting plants including orchards of citrus and other fruit trees and a vegetable garden. Wrap-around porticoes and a shaded terrace with hammocks offer sitting and dining areas while the smallish but perfectly formed pool has knock-out views across vineyards and olive groves. The lawns are bordered by lavender, cactuses and vines, while tall pines, palms and cypresses remind guests of their southern location.

Perfect hygiene: to ensure an exceptional level of hygiene in all our villas, we’ve worked with our owners to create a Covid-19 villa management protocol. Based on recommendations from the World Health Organisation, and in compliance with current Italian national law, this protocol goes above and beyond our usual rigorous cleaning standards.

Prior to arrival, your villa will have been fully sanitised, including all surfaces, objects, kitchen items, curtains, sofas, throws, pillows, toys, and in and around the pool. You are welcome to ask for a detailed list of the entire cleaning procedure we do after each departure and before welcoming new guests to the property.

The owner of this house has complied with the following standards:

  • To ensure the necessary information concerning social distancing and the use of masks is available to all guests
  • To guarantee availability of and accessibility to hand hygiene systems with hydro-alcoholic solutions and soaps in all inside areas of, and pertaining to, the villa
  • To guarantee cleaning and disinfection of all areas according to national authority guidelines. Further information is available on request
  • For the swimming pool: to guarantee the efficacy of the water treatments, while respecting legal limits (the parameter for free active chlorine in the pool is between 1.0 – 1.5 mg/l; combined chlorine ≤ 0.40 mg/l; pH 6.5 – 7.5 or equivalent oxygen)
  • For air conditioning systems: to guarantee the air re-circulation function is switched off and, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, with the plant in off-mode, to clean the air filters of the heating/cooling plants that use heat pumps, fan coils and convectors, at the end of each stay
