The home features are simple and straightforward but with a refined elegance combining an aesthetically appealing and practical design.
Il Fico, set on extensive, private grounds in the rolling hills of the Valle D’Itria, is a gorgeous setting for a holiday. Plunge into the large inviting pool, relax on a sun lounger under the shade of almond trees, gather for drinks by the fire pit and dine together on the terrace. It really is the best place to enjoy Mediterranean summers to the full.
This modern villa is a beautifully designed, single-storey structure for up to six guests. The kitchen, dining and sitting area form a sleek central living space. Each of the three bedrooms has a king-size bed and air conditioning ensuring a good night sleep. The master has its own bathroom while the other two share a bathroom.
Its welcoming, light-filled interiors have been carefully furnished with a selection of understated design classics, muted colours and a smooth, uncluttered finish. Exposed- stone walls blend effortlessly with the surrounding countryside. Floor to ceiling windows and doors on both sides give you a magnificent backdrop of views over the terrace, lawns, pool, trees and hills in the distance. Gather outside for blissful, long lunches, a snooze in the sunshine and alfresco meals together.
The location is perfect for rural tranquillity yet with easy reach you find buzzy restaurants and local shops in the historic hill towns of Martina Franca and Cisternino. Stroll through their cobbled streets and piazzas with locals and enjoy a cooling drink or gelato while watching the world go by. Both the Adriatic and Ionian coasts are a half-hour drive away so magnificent beaches, seafood restaurants and water sports are within easy reach too. Here you really do have the best of both worlds.
