An exclusive holiday inside the “trulli”

Leggi in Italiano

We are in Salento, Puglia, Valley of Itria. To me it’s a second home. This corner of Italy has given me love, friendships that accompany me from a lifetime and moments of unique joy and happiness. The Valley of Istria is in the center of Puglia and corresponds to the southern part of the Murge Plateau, known as the “Valley of the Trulli” – typical stone houses in the shape of a cone. The area is distinguished by the rural landscape, the high use of local stone – the Lecce stone – and the so-called “red earth”.

Villa Aieni, is located in San Vito dei Normanni and once was a trullo. The picture of the transformation is spectacular. The current structure, completed at the end of 2016, is a mix of contemporary style and traditional Apulian architecture. I find it gorgeous and ideal for a relaxing vacation in nature with family or a group of friends.

Twenty thousand square meters of land, with fruit trees and secular olive trees, welcome and embrace the estate that can accommodate up to eight people. The “six cones” that make up the old structure, host the sleeping area, dining room and several sitting areas / study areas. The bedrooms are three, each with its own private entrance and overlooking the pool. The new structure includes the dining area with a super-equipped kitchen. In the garden, in addition to fruit, a large variety of aromatic plants are grown.

On request, you can arrange yoga and meditation lessons, cooking and local dance.
