Casa Zana

Clean lines, earthy tones and natural materials characterise the simple sophistication of this elegant, single-storey villa for eight

Hidden in an ancient olive grove close to the Adriatic coast, where the Itria Valley becomes Northern Salento, Casa Zana is a sophisticated single-storey, modern villa.

Sleeping eight in four double rooms, the house’s interior is a calming mix of natural colours and materials. Earthy terracottas and chalky whites reflect the surrounding landscape while the smooth concrete floor, used both inside and on the terraces outside, is a bare-foot delight.

There is little need to do more than glide from house to pool, via the kitchen and the dining terrace, perhaps venturing onto the roof terrace to gaze at the view or, when it’s dark, at the stars.

It would be a travesty, however, not to venture beyond the gates to the nearby trulli villages, magical white towns and the beaches and rocky coves of the Adriatic.

Rooms description


The four double bedrooms all open onto the pool and garden. Simply decorated, the smooth concrete floors, wooden beds, comfy mattresses, natural colour palette and Scandi-inspired minimalism are serene and understated.


Equally simple in style, but with high-quality fixtures and fittings, the chalky white bathrooms all have walk-in showers.


The kitchen is at one end of the large, open-plan living space. Expertly equipped, the beautiful sea-foam green fitted cupboards are understated yet house everything you could need.

Living rooms

At the other end to the kitchen is the living area, with the dining space between. Two white pendants loop over the beautiful wooden dining table, while sliding doors lead to the outside dining terrace. The sitting area has a huge L-shaped sofa, a wooden coffee table and a TV, although you’ll likely spend more time staring out of the enormous picture window. Elegantly understated, it is the perfect indoor place to relax.

Other rooms




private pool, air conditioning, espresso machine, hob/stove, oven, fridge, fridge with freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, television, wifi, central heating


This property is not specifically suited to less mobile guests


Fenced and accessed via an automatic gate, Casa Zana is completely private. Surrounded by an ancient olive grove, the white exterior of the villa sits in stunning contrast to the red Puglian soil. Immediately in front of the house and accessed by sliding doors from the kitchen, is the shaded dining terrace. This looks over a terraced garden bed above the pool, with sunloungers and parasols lining the long side and a shaded lounge area at one end. The villa has a roof terrace accessed by external steps typical of houses in the area, from where guests can look out across the pretty Puglian countryside or stargaze at night.

Your villa and Covid-19

To prevent any possible spread of Covid-19 and to enable you to enjoy a safe and relaxing holiday, all our villas are cleaned to the highest standard possible, and according to the latest Italian health and safety regulations.

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
