This sleek, single-storey property is a sculptural delight of natural materials and colours inside, while the bright white exterior and azure pool reflect its stunning coastal location
Just a short drive from the rocky coves and white sandy beaches of this exquisitely beautiful and relatively untouched part of Puglia is Loliva, a smooth white villa with sculptural architectural lines and an azure-blue pool.
Sleeping eight in four en-suite rooms, the house is a sleek and contemporary celebration of rustic living, reflected in the use of natural materials such as wood, stone, linen and rope. Much of the interior build uses free-form design and it is decorated in a rich, earthy colour palette that reflects the surrounding landscape.
The smooth walls and floors look like they have been poured into place and are the perfect backdrop to a barefoot holiday existence of rest and relaxation, punctuated by delicious meals using fresh local ingredients, cooling swims in the saltwater pool and aperitivi watching the sun set over the sea from the rooftop terrace.
The space, privacy and comfort of Loliva is matched by its wonderful location. The beaches and coves of this mesmerising coastline are easily reached and guests can also enjoy wine tastings and tours in some of the area’s celebrated vineyards, or excursions to Lecce, Otranto and other Salentine towns with their rich cultural and architectural heritage.
