A well-known architect has brought traditional Puglian architecture into the 21st-century by mixing historic building techniques with modern design aesthetics. This is beautifully represented in the villa’s vast living room that features a cathedral-like conical roof made of stone recovered from an ancient trullo. It also has built-in sofas with beige and taupe toned cushions and refined decorative objects and art from around the world, like you will find throughout the villa. Guests can have some quiet time in the stylish study or the cozy TV room.
The villa has four bedrooms. The two master bedrooms are a real highlight, boasting unique beds, en-suite bathrooms and outdoor showers set within private gardens. Of the other two bedrooms, one is a double and the other is a twin, with another twin or double bed on the balcony, making it perfect for young adults.
The outdoor living areas revolved around an exceptional 21-metre pool designed to look like the seashore. Around this are sun loungers, a covered outdoor lounge, an outdoor kitchen with barbeque and shaded dining area with a large glass and teak dining table.
You can augment your experience of Puglia on easy day trips from the villa. Within a short drive are lovely towns whereas beautiful beaches can be reachable in less than 30 minutes. The area is also a paradise for foodies with six Michelin-starred restaurants.
If you have a larger group, Villa Caterina is conveniently located next door to Villa Bettina and is only a five-minute drive from La Lamia .
