With its gleaming white walls, ancient olive trees and striking cube construction, this fabulous new villa reminds you that Italy’s spectacular deep south is actually closer to Greece than Rome. The interiors, however, are 100% Italian. From the bright contemporary artworks to the glossy statement dining table, owner Roberto has created a unique and stylish retreat for one or two families or a group of friends looking for a little luxury in the glorious Puglian countryside. The entire house is superbly well equipped yet tastefully restrained, putting a modern polish on traditional local style to create a seductively laid-back escape.

Sun-blessed and beautifully secluded, Tenuta Fonte feels like the essence of summer, with lots of outdoor social spaces for cooking, eating and lounging. It’s the perfect fly-and-flop villa for anyone needing to decompress in peace and privacy, just a few kilometres from the warm Adriatic at Torre Canne and the trendy beach clubs of Capitolo a little further north. Nearby Ostuni is one of the literal high points of the region, dramatically elevated, steeped in history and whitewashed to photogenic perfection. It’s easy to get delightfully lost in its narrow backstreets and stairways, but there’s always an enticing little bar or trattoria to pop into whilst you find your bearings once again. Conveniently placed between Ostuni and the sea, Tenuta Fonte puts you at the heart of this superlative region for a stress-free break with everything you need within close to hand.

Tenuta Fonte is a stunning villa set in secluded grounds. The gardens and olive trees were beautiful especially when lit up in the evenings. The pool which is salt water was superb for a refreshing dip. We loved sitting on the outdoor sofas in the morning with coffee and in the evening with drinks. Spotlessly clean and lovingly furnished it was hard to leave.

Mrs Joanne Sharp, August 2023

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.
