Villa Piddi – Ceglie Messapica - Apulia
6 Bedrooms – Pool – Sauna
Villa Piddi is a panoramic, modern property surrounded by private woodland and set on an promontory about 300 m above sea level. This promontory ensures that the villa enjoys a marvellous micro-climate all year round and far-reaching views across the olive groves.
The Villa is located in the northern part of the stunning Salento area in Puglia. It is known locally as the terra "tra due mari", the land between two seas, as it is almost equidistant from both the Adriatic coast and the Ionian coast. This unforgettable part of Puglia is rich in ancient history and famous for its wine and gastronomic traditions. Ceglie Messapica in particular is well-known as a region of gastronomic delights and is celebrated for its numerous, exceptionally good eateries, some of which are starred restaurants. This area is also hosts the Med Cooking School (Mediterranean Cooking School) in addition to prestigious culinary activities during the summer season for the many visitors that come from all over the world.
This area of the Salento is full of caves, for example the Montevicoli caves in Ceglie Messapica and the Castellana underground cave complex. There is even a cavern in the woodland surrounding the villa, where you can sit back, relax and enjoy the cool, fresh air and incredible silence. There are also plenty of beautiful, clean beaches nearby, for example Campo Marino on the Ionian coast and the nature reserve at Torre Guaceto on the Adriatic coast. You'll also find captivating panoramas with traces of a long past stretching from the Greeks to the Byzantines and from the Romans to the Turks. Egnazia Archeological Park is a marvellous example of historical things to do and see in the area.
Villa Piddi is elegantly furnished with loving attention paid to every detail. There is an enormous open-space living room with a large glass front opening out onto the rock gardens, splendid swimming pool and surrounding woodland. There is a huge, fully-equipped kitchen and you can choose to eat your meals either in the dining room or outside in the al fresco dining area, which also has a barbecue.
All of the bedrooms have autonomous air conditioning and the four suites also have working fireplaces and luxurious bathrooms. Three of the bedrooms have independent access if desired. There are three sitting rooms with smart TV and comfortable sofas. The entire villa and the pool area have Wi-Fi.
The grounds and woodland around the villa are immaculate and feature Mediterranean plants and local flowers, a perfect place for adults to relax and children to run around and let their imaginations run riot!
The whole property and surrounding area are floodlit with both soft lighting where guests gather and extra LED spotlights if required. There is video surveillance and a latest generation anti-intruder system. The property also has a Swedish sauna with two benches.
The swimming pool is at the back of the villa and is beautifully set among rocks and trees, thus creating a wonderfully natural visual impact. There is even a bar at water level.
A very good restaurant is situated next the villa, where you can not only dine on exceptional local dishes but you can even take part in intensive haute cuisine cookery courses. The restaurant is also available for catering services and home deliveries.
