Villa Blu is located in the rolling fields just outside the beautiful town of Ostuni. The estate of Terra Sessana is home for this 5 bedroom villa with private pool, the spacious grounds have three other villas and each property has space and private pool. Villa Blu is an original 18th-century villa which once belonged to a wealthy family from Ostuni, their country manor. The current owners have restored the villa, adding 21st-century comforts whilst maintaining the original charm and style of this lovely villa.
The property can accommodate up to ten guests across five double bedrooms, with three extra singles available. Three of the bedrooms can be either double beds or twin beds. The house’s interior is a colourful yet elegant reflection of the owner’s eclectic tastes. It is brimming with family heirlooms married perfectly with a backdrop of original vaulted stone ceilings and locally handcrafted flooring.
Each bedroom has its own bathroom (three with en-suites), one of which has a jacuzzi and Turkish bath. It’s a vast house, with two separate and stylish living rooms, yet doesn’t lose its intimacy. The atmosphere is especially enhanced by the collections of art and other pieces belonging to previous generations of the same family.
There’s a spacious roof terrace belonging to the villa where the surrounding views can be admired. Also to be discovered is the intimate charm of the pretty stone balcony, perfect for morning coffee or an evening aperitif. By the pool, there is a large covered area with comfortable sofas, a dining area and a barbecue and small bar for outdoor summer living.
The location is ideal for exploring this part of Puglia, with the stunning towns of Ostuni, Martina Franca, CIsternino and the UNESCO site of Alberobello within a short drive. The sandy beaches of the Adriatic coast are also only about 30 minutes away by car. There are plenty of places to eat out close by and the owners even can prepare meals for you and also offer cooking classes so that you can head home not only with delightful memories but also with a deeper knowledge of the mouth-watering local cuisine.
