Villa Vita was beautifully restored in 2008 and has been a hit with Essential Italy clients ever since. The villa sits on a hillside in extensive private grounds. It’s rare to find an original stone property of such character with all the bedrooms under one roof. There are two trullos housing two of the bedrooms and both trullos can be accessed externally and internally, so are not separate from the main living areas.
Entry is into a large and stylish sitting room, a cooling sanctuary should outdoor living get just a touch too hot. An archway links the lounge to the open plan kitchen and dining area with a contemporary feel and chic décor. The kitchen is very well equipped and includes a gas hob, full sized oven, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave – for the adventurous chef there’s everything you could need to try out some traditional Pugliese dishes. The large dining table comfortably seats 8 guests (there is also a large covered dining area outside by the pool).
From the kitchen is a corridor leading to 4 bedrooms, 2 of these are double rooms at the front of the building and both are original trulli (high conicle shaped roofs). To the left of the corridor you will find a twin room with ensuite shower room, one double bedroom and between these rooms a bathroom with shower and corner bath. Immediately to the right upon leaving the kitchen is a further family bathroom with shower, and just beyond is the entrance leading out to the large terrace and fantastic pool which sits to the rear of the villa. A small utility room with washing machine completes the picture.
This property has the advantage of wonderfully thick walls so remains cool even when the outside temperature is soaring.
The outside areas at Villa Vita have been carefully considered during the restoration. There is a large covered dining area overlooking the stunning, big swimming pool which takes ‘centre stage’ at the back of the house. There is also an outdoor stone kitchen with barbecue, sink and seating maximising outdoor living to the full.
The standard and quality of this refurbished villa make it an unforgettable holiday home for all our guests.
