In Puglia, you can go back in time and sleep in the architecture of the past, in antique trullo (i). They are singular and picturesque and define the landscape of Puglia, abridged by alcoves and arches to create distinct ambients; creating exceptional accommodation like Villa Libellula. The lands, the countryside, the contact with nature and the return to the past, make Villa Libellula a special solution for your holiday home.
Villa Libellula is situated in nearly the centre of Puglia, in the Valle d’Itria, the village of Sisto to be more precise; amidst a distribution of valleys and hills between the Ionian and Adriatic Seas. The Valle d’Itria has a unique mix of towns; from the baroque Martina Franca to the panoramic overlook of Cisternino, the dynamic and youthful Locorotondo, Alberobello, the city of trulli, the down to earth Ceglie Messapica and the fashionable Ostuni.
The villa is located amongst other trulli habitations in a semi-residential area. Sisto Village has many practical amenities including restaurants, bars, mini-markets but also provides sports facilities for beach tennis and volleyball in the summer, and five aside football, out of the high season.

From the kitchen, we follow a corridor to the main and central roomy double bedroom, which was originally the wine cellar. Stone from top to toe, it’s all around you. The high ceilings and stone-faced walls provide natural freshness and generous amounts of space.
The corridor continues to the family shower room, recently renewed and equipped with washing machine.
The lounge, which faces the stone square, is surprisingly large and comfortable with two divans, stone-built fireplace and TV. The trullo arch passes through the studio to the third and final bedroom. Furnished with an antique dressing table and large in-built wardrobe space.
A large stone paved square, shaded by a magnificent magnolia tree and a tall fir tree, separates the villa from the grounds and swimming pool. The salt-based swimming pool (10 x 4m and 1.5m in depth) has a calming acquamarine colour, surrounded by greenery and colourful mini shrubs and fauna.
