Description

A wander through Puglia takes you back in time to visit the architecture of a by-gone era: the trulli of the Valle d'Itria. These conical shaped houses are unique to this area, linked by arches and dotted with alcoves, creating a distinct and magical atmosphere evident in exceptional accommodation like Villa Libellula. The red earth of the olive groves, the rolling countryside, the contact with nature surrounding Villa Libellula will provide a memorable holiday experience.


Location
Villa Libellula is located in the Valle d’Itria, virtually in the centre of Puglia, close to the small village of Sisto. Amidst the valleys and hills of the countryside, between the Adriatic Sea on one side and the Ionian Sea on the other, the Valle d’Itria has a unique mix of towns really worth a visit; Martina Franca with its baroque architecture, Cisternino and its panoramic views, Locorotondo and its indefinable charm, Alberobello - the city of trulli, Ceglie Messapica famed for its gastronomy and the dazzling white city of Ostuni

The villa stands in a country setting with charming views. Scattered along the neighbouring lanes are a mix of original and restored trulli. Sisto Village has many practical amenities including restaurants, a bar, and a mini-market on the road out to Locorotondo


Friends & Family
Plan a visit with your friends and family; we have room for 6, or 7 at a squeeze. Organise a special event, celebrate an anniversary or simply enjoy the holiday that you deserve; and we are here to help make it happen. You will find spacious living accommodation with three bedrooms spread over an area of 140 square metres; the property facilitates privacy and personal space for all its guests.


Interiors
Villa Libellula is a very spacious L-shaped property all on ground floor level. The original trulli are interconnected to the more recent construction providing an appealing spread of accommodation. The property presents three full sized bedrooms; two doubles and a twin bedroom (extra single available).


A large gazebo to the front of the main entrance facilitates outside dining for 6/7 overlooking the courtyard. From here, large double glazed doors take you in to the modern extension consisting of a bright and airy sitting/dining room with air con unit and through to the singles bedroom (2 or 3 beds) with its own air con unit and private shower room. Note this shower room can be accessed independently from the sitting/dining room without going through the bedroom.


The kitchen flows adjacent to the dining room and yet remains out of view when seated at the table. It is well-equipped with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, hob and oven. A kitchen patio lies outside the back door, with a sun umbrella and table and chairs, an ideal spot to enjoy your first coffee of the day in the morning sun.


From the kitchen, a corridor leads to the spacious main double bedroom. This was originally the wine cellar and the exposed stone walls and high ceilings ensure the room remains cool and airy in the summer temperatures.


The corridor continues to the recently renovated larger family shower room, equipped with washing machine.

A high arch invites you into the lounge which has double doors leading out onto the front courtyard.
This is a large and comfortable space with two settees, traditional stone fireplace and TV. A second arch leads to another trullo furnished with bookshelves and a desk for those quiet moments we all yearn for. This connects to the final and third bedroom; a comfortable space furnished with an antique dressing table and large, built-in wardrobe.



Exteriors
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) is a calming acquamarine colour, surrounded by greenery and colourful shrubs and fauna ensuring total privacy.

At your disposal is a spectacular barbecue with an outside sink carved from its original stone; yet another gazebo by the pool for outside dining or simply some shade; a shower with hot and cold water; a vegetable plot available from spring to autumn; and a main entrance with automatic gates.  


The land of approximately 6,000 square metres is partially enclosed by fencing and by dry stone walls. it is populated with numerous olive trees, an enormous walnut tree, fig, apricot and and other fruit trees, edible grape vines, ornate palms, flowering trees and shrubs and various cooking herbs.


Without a doubt, Villa Libellula has a magical atmosphere throughout the year, it is an ideal environment for nature lovers and a great base for exploring all the best that Puglia has to offer.

Exclusive for our Guests at Relax Puglia

Chef in Casa - Home-cooked food for travelers of the world; what better way to grasp the inner circle of local life than to have a local cook share with you their Puglia cuisine, as cooked in their homes. We are fortunate to have on board Lucrezia, who has been working with Relax Puglia for nearly ten years.

Lucrezia is warm and generous with a passion I can only envy for cooking; but looking after two growing boys has been her real inspiration; working magic with fresh and seasonal local ingredients. Enquire with us, we have set menus available to choose from or let us know what you’ve in mind.

Cooking Classes If you are looking to entertain the family and also wish to experience real Pugliese country cooking then look no further. Hands-on cooking lessons where everyone gets to be involved making a full course meal, from anti-pasto to first and second courses and to complete it with a traditional sweet dish.

In-house Massages - Life is easier when you are relaxed so you may need to pamper yourself or someone else. Bring the Massage Therapist to your Puglia rental villa door and enjoy a delicious massage, a fusion of eastern and western techniques pointing you towards both relaxation and cure.

The best part about bringing the Massage Therapist to your door is, you don’t have to drive, you don’t have to deal with the outside world, you don't even have to get dressed although the Therapist would appreciate you wear a robe!
