We are in Salento, Puglia, Itria’s Valley. For me a second home. This corner of Italy has given me love, friendships that have accompanied me for a lifetime and moments of unique joy and happiness. The Itria’s Valley is in the center of Puglia and coincides with the southern part of the Murge Plateau, known as the “Valle dei Trulli” – typical cone-shaped stone houses. The area stands out for its 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 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 and nature holiday with family or a group of friends.
Twenty thousand square meters of land, with fruit trees and centuries-old olive trees, welcome and embrace the estate which can accommodate up to eight people. The “six cones” that make up the old structure house the sleeping area, the dining room and various sitting areas / study areas. There are three bedrooms, each with indipendent entrance and overlooking the swimming pool. The new structure includes the dining area with a fully equipped kitchen. In addition to fruit, a great variety of aromatic plants are grown in the garden.
On request, it is possible to organize yoga and meditation lessons, cooking and local dance.
