Villa del Capitano
The breathtaking blue of the Ionian Sea is heightened by the crisp whiteness and bold flashes of colour of this luxurious retreat, creating a veritable sanctuary in a beguiling landscape.
Villa del Capitano is a modernist three-bedroom villa in a breathtaking setting. Surrounded by the Porto Selvaggio nature reserve and its own beautifully landscaped garden, the property sleeps six guests in minimal luxury. Taking influences from around the globe, this is a calm retreat that eschews cookie cutter homogeneity in favour of a comfortable design focus.
The house is as exquisite as the 270* views from its huge picture windows. The white interior is softened by a stone floor and the eclectic art collection, and provides the perfect backdrop to the earthy reds, olive greens, and the sky and sea blues of the landscape. Nature is the main draw and the property frames it to perfection, including the tropical and Mediterranean planting in the extensive garden.
Guests could happily while away days by the pool, eating delicious meals of local produce al fresco and inhaling the peace and calm while staring out to sea. However, it would be a shame to miss the magnificent beaches and pretty baroque towns on the doorstep. But visitors will be thrilled anew as they return to the peaceful luxury of this welcoming villa in a lesser-known part of Italy’s heel.
