Historical Trullo in San Michele Salentino, in the center of Puglia, 4 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms, exclusive oasis where sun, pure air, luxury and relaxation reign supreme
The Villa Magnifica is a private villa located in the heart of the salento region. The villa is designed for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and stay in an exclusive oasis where sun, pure air, luxury and relaxation reign supreme. To feel at home... And much more: the villa offers customised stays suited to all needs, enabling guests to experience the luxury they are accustomed to, and to feel looked after, pampered and protected.
The salento countryside, with its scents and colours, is easily accessible by air and rail. The Villa is very close to ostuni, ceglie messapica and alberobello, just 20 minutes from brindisi airport, 15 kilometres from the white shores of the adriatic coast and one hour from the ionian coast.
Ferry services to the greek islands from the port of brindisi are only 20 minutes away. The estate is surrounded by farms at which guests are welcome to taste and buy local products of the traditional, rich salentino cuisine.
A landscape filled with classic beauty: a land with no steep slopes, mild weather and sunshine nearly all year round, geometric stretches of red land and no surface water courses, olive groves as far as the eye can see and neat vineyards in rows. The villa is surrounded by a park of olive, almond, fig and pomegranate trees, as well as long stone walls where to stop and listen to the hypnotic song of cicadas, losing all sense of time.
The trulli stand out like stone tents in the green landscape of olive trees, exhibiting their white pinnacles and displaying mysterious signs on the convex side of their cones: crosses, crescents, stars and angels protecting the hearth - ancestral traditions of an agricultural and deeply spiritual culture, profoundly linked to natural symbolism.
The trulli have been declared a unesco world heritage site and are the most exciting discovery in a land that has such a rich architectural and environmental identity.
The Villa, in its aristocratic isolation, is precisely this: an opportunity to treat oneself to a fulfilling holiday experience, in contact with the history and nature of the salento region.
The Villa Magnifica is a trullo composed of 11 cones. The 150 sq.m trullo is surrounded by 23,000 sq.m of countryside. Inside there are 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3 living rooms and 2 kitchens. The interiors have modern style, top designer furniture, and offer all mod cons (telephone, fax, plasma tv with satellite connection, wi-fi, air-conditioning and heating that can be individually adjusted, microwave, coffee and tea maker): exclusive environments recreating a homely atmosphere, with an extra touch of elegance and constant attention to detail.
The trullo has been designed to guarantee utmost privacy and functionality. In fact, a section of the trullo, despite being part of the same building, has a private entrance and is ideal for those who prefer to go on holiday with their own domestic staff. On the left and right side of the trullo there are two stone courtyards which are used as outdoor lounge areas with direct access from the trullo, where one can relax in an intimate atmosphere. The two courtyards are furnished with sofas, tables, sun umbrellas and tv. The fully fenced site has a private parking and alarm system.
The Villa is surrounded by a typical maquis shrubland oasis with more than 800 trees: secular olive trees, as well as almond, fig, pomegranate, mulberry, prickly pear, apple, pear, citrus, plum and walnut trees. In the countryside, it is possible to admire an old, abandoned trullo; trulli (from the late greek word τρούλοσ, dome) are traditional apulian stone dwellings with a conical roof, dating back to the proto-historic period, and are typical of the centre/south of apulia.
They were once used by farmers for their housing and working needs. Some trulli were used for the storage of agricultural tools, raw clay baskets and pots, and ceramic containers for oil, wine and cereals. In 1996, the trulli were declared a world heritage site by unesco.
In the pool area there is a relaxation area, with brick couches, pillows, tables and sun umbrellas, where one can relax in the sun and enjoy a cocktail. The outdoor area is equipped with hi-fi stereo and is an ideal venue for exclusive parties.
The cascading, 14x7m swimming pool is decorated entirely with cobalt blue mosaics. The pool has two showers. Bathrobes and towels are provided as standard.
In the pool area there is a relaxation area, with brick couches, pillows, tables and sun umbrellas, where one can relax in the sun and enjoy a cocktail. The pool is flanked on one side by a long wrought iron pergola trained with sweetly-scented jasmine: the perfect area for a pleasant rest in the shade.
Just a few meters from the swimming pool there is a large gazebo with a kitchen area, equipped with an oven, a cooker, a dishwasher, an ice maker, a beverage cooler, a bar, and tables and chairs, in which to prepare and have breakfast, lunch and dinner. And all without ever losing contact with nature. For those looking for complete relaxation, a chef is available upon request to satisfy all tastes.
For the chef there are 2 options:
1) cooking service (200 eur x the cooking service ) + cost of the food (the chef buys the food and the client refunds it by cash. Receipt will be provided to the client); the cost of cooking service include chef and waiter
