Villa Il Cigno - Cisternino - Apulia

9 Bedrooms - Outdoor and Indoor Pool

Location and Surrounding Area. Located in one of the most appreciated areas in Apulia, just a few kilometers from the marvellous Adriatic coast and out of the town of Cisternino, this exclusive nine-bedroom property is ideally situated to offer complete privacy and tranquillity to its guests, providing a perfect seaside retreat for the sweet idleness the Italian refer to as "dolce far niente". An appealing white-washed hilltop town, slow-paced Cisternino boasts a charming historic center beyond its bland modern outskirts, and with its Kasbah-like knot of streets, it has been designated as one of the country’s most beautiful towns.

In less than half an hour by car, you can easily reach Ostuni, also known as the White City. Hidden in the heart of Apulia and surrounded by ancient walls, the old town is renowned for its white-washed center, where the flat top buildings contrast against the tranquil teal waters. From the buildings that rise from the flat plains, you would not be mistaken for thinking that you are currently wandering around a charming Greek village. Ostuni’s coastline meanders along seventeen kilometers of Mediterranean scrub, sandy beaches, and rocky shores.

The villa is also a few kilometers from Carovigno, a lovely medieval town in northern Salento, exceptionally well-known for its beautiful coast and the production of high quality olive oil, as well as for its attractive historic center and Dentice di Frasso Castle. The land is characterized by the sprawl of centuries-old olive groves, manor farms, and beautiful varied beaches that stretch along the crystal-clear sea for nearly fourteen kilometers. Carovigno has also earned four sails in the Touring Club’s Blue Guide thanks to its clean waters, and the Blue Flag of Beaches for the beauty of its coast.

In less than half an hour by car, you can also reach Alberobello, which has been made a UNESCO World Heritage site for its unusual districts of Trulli, the characteristic white-washed conical-roofed historical houses of the area. The Trulli of Alberobello are famous worldwide for their beauty and unique characteristics, and represent one of the most extraordinary examples of Italian folk architecture. Even though the principal tourist activity in Alberobello is wandering around looking at the Trulli, there are also several small museums and plenty of opportunities for buying souvenirs and tasting local products.

Villa Il Cigno is just 55 km from Salento Airport, 90 km from Bari International Airport - Karol Wojtyla, and 303 km from Lamezia Terme International Airport. Ostuni is 15 km from the villa, Carovigno is 23 km, Alberobello is 20 km, and Brindisi is 53 km. The property is situated around 3 km from the town of Cisternino, where all the necessary services (supermarket, pharmacy, bank, post office, restaurants) can be easily found.

The Property. Immersed in a landscape of exceptional beauty characterized by gentle hills, green meadows and olive trees, Villa Il Cigno is the result of a perfect balance between Italian tradition and contemporary style, providing a unique retreat for those seeking complete privacy and pure relaxation in one of the most appreciated areas in Apulia. Designed by Vincenzo Melluso and nestled in a peaceful Mediterranean garden, this magnificent villa offers nine bedrooms (two master double bedrooms and seven standard double bedrooms) with en suite bathrooms spread across multiple structures connected by long corridors, creating an evocative maze of rooms and hallways.

Surrounded by an exquisitely kept garden overlooking centuries-old olive trees, the property boats a large and uniquely-shaped swimming pool and a spacious poolside area equipped with comfortable sun loungers and deckchairs. The garden also boasts an exceptional pool house featuring a kitchen and all the necessary services and facilities to guarantee the most comfortable stay possible. Offering a peaceful atmosphere, the paved area beside the pool represents the ideal place for basking in the sun and enjoying wonderful moments of relaxation in the company of a good book and a glass of prosecco, while the spectacular view over the surrounding garden instantly gives a sense of peace and calm.

Flooded with light, the interior living space is uniquely furnished and exquisitely decorated with pieces of contemporary design, while the large windows overlooking the garden create a luminous atmosphere dominated by light colors. Composed of several blocks connected by long corridors, this exclusive property offers a spacious dining room with professional kitchen, multiple living rooms of different dimensions, and a comfortable TV room. Next to the living area, which is distributed over two levels, you will find the sleeping area, a large studio with library, and an exclusive indoor swimming pool with steam bath. What could be more relaxing than having all your needs met without having to leave the comfort of your villa?

The villa features nine light-filled double bedrooms with private bathrooms – two comfortable master bedrooms and seven standard double bedrooms – each characterized by a refined and neutral design enriched by unique pieces of furniture from all over the world, creating a lovely private haven for afternoon siestas and peaceful nights. To further enhance the relationship with the outstanding beauty of the surrounding nature, large windows constantly offer inviting views over the garden. The rooftop houses a magnificent 18th century brass canopy bed from Morocco, creating a warm atmosphere and an intimate lounge area. Designed by Vincenzo Melluso in collaboration with Erich Demetz, the pavilion “Una scatola di luce, un gioco di sguardi” is completely flooded with light, and its interior east wall displays the verses of a poem by Salvatore Quasimodo.
