Over the last few years, Puglia (pronounced Pu-lia) has become a go-to destination for tourists on the hunt for their next adventure. At the ‘heel’ of Italy’s boot, Puglia is bursting at the seams with enchanting trullis, sparkling blue waters and vibrant history. Given the region’s boom in popularity, we’ve picked the best 10 villas in Puglia. Take a peek at the luxury that waits…
1. Trulli Cosma
Say ciao to Trulli Cosma. This wonderful villa in Puglia stands on 5000 square metres of beautifully landscaped gardens. The owners refurbished the holiday home in 2016, so visitors can expect a fusion of shabby chic and rustic interiors. Besides the three bedrooms, there’s an additional sofa bed – so if you have any family or friends in the area they too can relish in the large garden and swimming pool area. If you need a change of scenery, head over to Monopoli (the nearest village) and soak up the incredible nightlife on offer.

Trullis are both unconventional as they are exceptional, but Trulli Di Olive is a real show stopper. Besides its minimalistic Pugliese character, guests can also find a state-of-the-art glass cube room, which is the perfect spot to observe the lush green surroundings. When the sun starts to set behind the clouds, that’s your cue to make the most of the quarry-stone barbecue and wood-burning stove oven. While the adults guzzle down the wine, the kids can frolick on the trampoline until dinner is served.
