Il Fico

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.

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
