Description

In Puglia, it is said that time has stopped! Wake up in this slow flow of time, in the simplicity and comfort of Villa Lucia, a country house with accommodation and surroundings full of natural light split over two-levels, a place where you are reminded of the scents of the woods, of the beauty of nature and vivid colours of the enormous blue sky. Appreciated at its best from the shade of the grand old European oak tree that overhangs the poolside.

Location
Villa Lucia sits in a corner spot, on a country lane; a crossroads favoured by field workers, cyclists, walkers and the local commuters on their way to the market village of Cisternino for their daily supplies. A nearby hamlet Caranna, just a short drive away, a sprint on the bike away, has a mini-market selling an array of locally produced products and essentials, a couple of restaurants, most notably Il Capriccio, the Pizzeria and restaurant specializing in fresh pasta dishes and roasted meats.

A twenty-minute drive away and you’re by the sea and faced with the choice of which beach club (lido) to spend the day at or seafood restaurant to lunch or dine in?

The winding rural roads from Villa Lucia take you to nearby Cisternino, with all the amenities and facilities required; supermarkets, restaurants, bars, boutiques, festivals and entertainment throughout the summer months.

Cisternino is in an area characterized by the trullo and drystone walls that surround the olive groves and vineyards. The village backs on to the hilltops that overlook the expansive coastline of the Adriatic; an energetic walk away from Villa Lucia and you can view this spectacle with your own eyes.

What is there to see and do in Cisternino?

Friends & Family

It is rare to have the occasion to rent a property with 4 bedrooms that comfortably sleeps and accommodates 8 adults or family with children, big and small. The grandparents can have their accommodation too, giving the everyone the privacy needed to ensure your Puglia holiday goes as planned. 

Interiors

A home where you can decompress and rest when it suits. Villa Lucia is divided to ensure the occupants have total privacy within a spacious house with clean lines, light and a soft soothing style.

The upper floors have two naturally, well-lit bedrooms with wardrobe space and night tables. The master bedroom surveys the poolside and the twin takes its views from the fields behind Villa Lucia; both share the main shower room. A well facilitated kitchen and comfy lounge off the main corridor leads out on to the main patio furnished with outside table and chairs.

Detached and externally accessed via an outside stairwell, the lower two bedrooms are equally bright with large glass paned windows, independent access and private shower rooms.

Exteriors

There is a constant dialogue between the white façade set against the blue Apulian sky and the distinct freshness offered by the ancient oak tree that provides a canopy of green foliage by the infinity pool. The outside areas are designed for enjoying the conviviality of friendship.

The large solarium indulges the sun worshipper, essential loungers are dotted about plus some easy chairs for daydreaming. But by evenfall, Villa Lucia takes on a new life. There is a silence of rest, only the hum of the crickets fill the air. The outside lighting bounces off the warm waters of the aquamarine pool, catching you in a moment of complete restfulness.

Celebrate Food

Sagras/Festivals
Our region holds a number of festivals ‘sagra’ during the year, mainly during the summer; celebrating religious anniversaries, customs, local food produce, crafts, wines and music. They offer huge amounts of evening entertainment with live music and usually fireworks to close the event. Each village opens its community doors offering their hospitality and locality to visitors. Be sure you enquire with us as to the nearest one to your holiday villa in Puglia to ensure you do not miss out on all the fun and festivities!

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!
