Villa overview - owner's description

This converted trullo – a traditional home with conical roof, unique to Puglia – accommodates up to seven lucky guests in true, Italian style. There's farmland nearby and you're surrounded by gentle hills, olive groves, vineyards and beautiful towns for day trips are within easy reach.

Casa Calella is a private villa with pool, and enjoys a peaceful, countryside location despite your nearest town of Cisternino being only four kilometres away. Comprising a main house and separate annexe, all arranged on a single storey, Casa Calella is perfect for an extended family group. The main house boasts a twin bedroom, family bathroom and master suite; complete with en-suite bathroom, king-size bed, exposed beams and rustic-style furniture. The kitchen-diner is spacious and a delightful mix of old-world charm and modern facilities. Throughout Casa Calella's interior, the decor adds muted colours and contemporary style to old stones and terracotta floors.

The self-sufficient annexe is the perfect accommodation for grandparents, independent children or friends wanting space. Guests have their very own double bed, living area and kitchenette.

Move outside through a graceful archway and you'll be wowed by the space you can call your own. The heat of the Puglian sun is evident in the potted cacti, dotted around the whitewashed walls of Casa Calella but welcome shade is provided by a mature tree. The generous terrace features a dining table and chairs, just waiting for you and your guests to dine al fresco, before exploring your lawned gardens where kids can run and play, or grown-ups can sit with an unhurried coffee.

Casa Calella's luxurious, private pool is waiting for you on the lower terrace. At eleven metres long, it's a great size for everyone to splash and swim together. The elegant pool terrace is flanked by Mediterranean plants and trees and features sun loungers and a shower. Take a break from the sun beneath the simply gorgeous pool-side pergola. This is your ultimate space for cooling off in the shade, sharing pre-dinner drinks, or, just reading a book.

If you need a break from the luxury of your private villa and pool, some of Italy's finest hilltop towns are within a short drive of Casa Calella. The white towns of Cisternino, Martina Franca and Locorotondo are all just a few kilometres away. Famous for cobbled streets, ancient history, fabulous restaurants and time-worn piazzas, these Puglian highlights make for ideal day trips, or just a couple of hours for finding that perfect bottle of olive oil and ingredients for dinner.

Within easy reach of Cisternino, Martina Franca and Locorotondo, Casa Calella is an ideal base for exploring Puglia's white towns, lush countryside and mouth-watering cuisine.

Claimed to be one of the most beautiful towns in Italy, Cisternino is only four kilometres from Casa Calella, and your nearest supply of shops, restaurants and bars. With a history dating back thousands of years, including Greek, Roman and Medieval chapters, it's brimming with architecture, archaeology and alleyways. The main square, Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, is a fascinating place for a refreshing drink and people watching, in between visits to palaces, churches and street markets.

Martina Franca is one of the largest towns in the area, and despite stiff competition, deemed the most picturesque. Featuring grand, baroque-style buildings, white-washed houses and plentiful piazzas, you're sure to find that perfect gift in the elegant shops lining the streets. Sightseeing highlights include Palazzo Ducale, Basilica di San Martino and the pointed roofs of the Lama district.

Locorotondo – meaning ‘circular place' – wraps itself around a hilltop in the Valle d'Itria, and is one of three delightful day trips about fifteen minutes from Casa Calella. Head here to admire samples of exquisite, traditional lace and to purchase a bottle or two of locally produced wine and sun-kissed olives, for that night's aperitivo on the terrace.

A thirty-minute drive east from Casa Calella will bring you to Ostuni's pretty coastline. Choose from several sandy beaches, coves and coastal villages for family adventures and stunning scenery. Parco Naturale Regionale Dune Costiere stretches from Torre Can to Torre San Leonardo and is an exhilarating mix of wild sand dunes, wetlands, ancient olive groves and pathways for exploring.

The end of the day will take you back home to the peace of your private villa, and after a last dip in the pool, tomorrow's plans can be made over an al fresco dinner as the sun goes down. Bliss...
