Villa Toffa

The renovation was done by using the traditional charm as a springboard for the creation of a perfectly designed modern holiday home with a boutique hotel feel. It's all about comfort here!

This luxurious high design villa in the heart of Puglia is inside and outside living at its best. Add to this the great location in the picturesque Valle d’Itria, and you’ve got the makings of the perfect getaway!

The former farmhouse, with guest house, has been recently restored to its original beauty using a very authentic and modern design. Villa Toffa is a luxurious, spacious and exceptionally comfortable house set amongst its own grove of ancient olive and almond trees in the Puglian countryside. Decorated with love for design and an eye for detail this traditional farmhouse is luxury furnished and beautifully decorated by meshing the old with the new.

The splendid villa and guest house are spacious enough for eight people plus two kids under 3. Both are luxury furnished, beautifully decorated in a stylish, contemporary style to create a large, welcoming and comfortable home with a layout that’s perfect for families or groups of friends but is also suited for a romantic break for two.

Villa Toffa is in an idyllic location yet only a few minutes away from the lovely town of Ceglie Messapica and has easy access to the well known historic ‘White town’ of Ostuni. Ceglie Messapica is one of the oldest towns in Puglia and has a reputation for being the gastronomic centre of Puglia, so there are some great restaurants where you can enjoy the local fare.

Rooms description


There are four comfortable bedrooms in “boutique hotel style” with high quality mattresses. Three of the rooms are in the main house and one is in the guest house. The Grand Master bedroom with vaulted ceilings is located at the north side of the main house. This bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom that is absolutely beautifully designed with a ceramic yellow (1) sink that stands out perfectly on the gorgeous dark iron tiles on the floor and walls. The other two bedrooms in the main house are located on the west side of the house overlooking the garden and the pool area. These two bedrooms share a spectacular bathroom styled with amazing tiles on walls and floor and high design finishes. The guest house is just one step away from the farmhouse and compromises a spacious bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. This very bright dependence is styled just as beautifully as the rest of the house with high design finishes and has a nice sofa that’s ideal for a little solitude. All four double bedrooms have hotel standard, thick, pocket sprung matrasses with soft hotel quality cotton linen. All you need for a good night’s sleep. In two of the bedrooms, the beds can also be arranged as twin beds.
