Traditional trullo estate amidst olive groves
8 guests · 4 bedrooms · 3 baths
Unique architecture gives this exceptional property a character all of its own. Built around a cluster of 11 restored trulli, the quirky conical dwellings characteristic of this part of Italy, it makes the perfect base for a wonderfully relaxing holiday. For those looking for Puglia villa rentals that display local character and culture, the Baraquiel Villa is an absolute gem.
Luxury and relaxation are the recurring themes. Spend long, lazy days around the stunning swimming pool and adjacent gazebo, fully equipped for idyllic al fresco dining and leisurely socializing, or retreat to one of the two stone courtyards – outdoor living areas – for some quality reading time. Surrounded by olive groves, the jasmine-scented gardens are a haven of peace and quiet.
The elegant air-conditioned interior combines traditional architectural features with high-end modern furnishings and thoughtful attention to detail. A wonderful sense of light and space pervades the living areas with their brickwork vaulted ceilings. Two kitchens are fully equipped to cater for large groups – ideal for two families renting together or guests traveling with domestic staff.
Designed to make the most of the unusual structure, three of the luxurious bedrooms feature queen-sized beds (a fourth bedroom has two single beds) complete with top-quality linen. The three well-appointed bathrooms are attractively tiled, and bathrobes and slippers are provided.
The surrounding region holds a huge amount of interest. Explore Ostuni, a picture-book medieval town with dazzling whitewashed buildings and some sublime restaurants serving up Puglian cuisine and fresh seafood. The beautiful baroque city of Lecce is close by, while for sea lovers, both the Adriatic and Ionian coasts are close at hand.
