Il Pettirosso is a work of art in itself, designed for living in, on and around. A stunning pool forms the heart of the external living space and contemporary artworks adorn both the interior and exterior
Il Pettirosso is a unique property designed by an eminent artist-architect. Beautifully located in the unspoiled Carovigno countryside, it is surrounded by olive groves, moments from the Adriatic.
The property occupies different buildings that interconnect around a courtyard. A fabulous outdoor living space, there is a stunning pool and lots of places to sit and socialise, find privacy with a book or to take advantage of an inviting snooze in the shade.
Site-specific artworks are dotted in and around the property, which is a playful, sculptural mix of varying shapes and heights, gently connected by stairs and narrow walkways. The central themes are nature and art, which harmoniously co-exist.
Six guests are accommodated in three bedrooms, all of which are painted entirely in black. There is no indoor living room but these interesting design choices show authentic style and work wonderfully for art-minded people.
While the living here is easy, it would be a shame not to drag yourself away from the comfort of the house and pool to discover the multiple diversions close by, from the Baroque towns of Ostuni and Lecce to the stunning beaches and a nature reserve on the coast.
