Set in a beautiful location with stunning views across the countryside, Villa Callisto is a super addition to the Puglia portfolio. A total renovation has transformed this once rural building into a fantastic holiday home – style and flair prevail maintaining the original features making it a chic and comfortable base for your stay in this delightful region of Italy.

The amount of space is immediately visible on arrival. The gardens have been carefully landscaped and there are plenty of seating areas, both sunny and shady, from where you may enjoy the panorama. The fantastic pool occupies a terrace in front of the villa and the covered dining area is the perfect place for long leisurely lunches overlooking the water.

The villa lends itself to summer living and the well-equipped kitchen has floor to ceiling glass doors looking out to the gardens. Leading off the kitchen is a cosy sitting room with big wood-burning stove (great for the cooler months) and comfy seating. A second lounge again with glass doors opens out on to the terrace and is the ideal place to escape the midday temperatures, relaxing on the sofas with a book or perhaps a glass of wine.

The very comfortable bedrooms (2 double and 1 twin) have been simply furnished in the Pugliese style and all have their own en-suite shower rooms. The fourth bedroom is accessed from the terrace and is in the original Trullo giving it lots of character under the typical coned roof – this also has an en-suite shower room in the adjoining Trullo.

Villa Callisto promises to be a great hit with all our clients, old and new, and the high standard of accommodation plus the super location will make it a very popular property so please book early!

What our guests say

Marcus J, USA

The villa exceeded all of our expectations! It was amazing, and we had excellent service throughout, from research to booking right through our stay and departure. We'll definitely be using Essential Italy again!

Melissa Luxmoore, Georgia, USA

We all made it to the villa yesterday with no issues - and we are all madly in love with it here!!!!! The property is incredible, and the villa is gorgeous - we’re so so happy! And thank you/the owners for the wonderful welcome baskets! We are all over the moon and already don’t want to leave :) Ian and Jackie say Chris was fantastic too. September 2019

Katy Purslow, London

Lovely design and interiors. Spacious light kitchen. Outdoor space generous. Excellent. Chris and Antonella were very helpful.

John De Vere White, Dublin

The house was charming. Simple but very tastefully done, the outside area was exceptional with a lovely pool. We could not fault anything. I understand we were the first tenants. the owners left us a lovely note and welcome hamper. There was also some essentials in the house, most welcome. We left a few full bottles as a thank you... please thank the owners for a very good experience.
