Although it’s built with the same luminous stone that sets Puglia’s historic towns and villages apart, La Vista makes a decisive and stylish departure from traditional architecture. Boldly contemporary, the villa’s straight lines and crisp corners etch it out with precision against blue skies. However, if you want to escape the pace of 21st-century life, this is the place to do it.

The views are stunning and, aside from the roofs of distant trulli peeking above the olive trees and woodland of the Valle d’Itria, there’s little to disturb the feeling that the rest of the world is very far away, although Cisternino, described as one of Italy’s most beautiful towns, is less than 15 minutes by road. Here you can enjoy the luxury of numerous places from which to appreciate that unspoilt landscape: terraces, al fresco dining areas, the generous infinity pool and through the large sliding glass doors of the villa itself.

The two double rooms and a twin leading off the living-dining area are the epitome of comfortable minimalism, the whiter-than- white walls and kitchen units creating a sense of lightness and brightness and echoing the natural luminosity of the pale local stone that has made towns such as Ostuni, just 20 minutes away, some of Puglia’s most photographed.

If you want to revel in a sense of seclusion and yet have everything you need within easy reach, La Vista is an obvious choice. It’s about a 15-minute walk from Casalini for a bar and restaurants, which are best for lunch unless you take a torch as the road there is unpaved and unlit. Otherwise some of the Val d’Itria’s most celebrated towns and villages are less than half an hour away, including Locorotondo, Cisternino, Martina Franca and impressive Ostuni, as are sandy Torre Canne beach and the White Ostuni Beach Club. A few minutes more on the road and you’ll reach Alberobello, the UNESCO-listed home of many of Puglia’s famous trulli houses and enchanting in every way, with plenty of shops and restaurants to explore once you’ve soaked up the history.

Our choice of Italian properties is diverse, ranging from simple charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.

To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
