Dimora La Scarcella occupies an idyllic spot at the heart of a picturesque olive grove, with the city of Ostuni just a short drive away. This villa offers a truly tranquil escape, with all the sights and smells of the olive grove making you feel utterly relaxed and away from it all.

The laidback feel of the villa is enhanced by the soothing, natural shades used throughout its rooms. Cosy and comfortable, the living space features two sofa beds for evenings spent unwinding, as well as offering additional sleeping options. Sharing the space is a dining table, with the fully-equipped kitchen close by for total ease and convenience.

The two double ensuite bedrooms have calming views over the olive tree-dotted outside space, making them the perfect thing to wake up to after a restful night’s sleep. There’s a well-appointed family bathroom for the use of all guests.

A separate property, or ‘lamia’, as it’s known as in Puglia, offers independent accommodation, with a double bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living/dining space.

The plot that both properties share features a walled garden with a large, private pool set within a lush lawn. There are several sun loungers for chilling out on and plenty of trees offering shady spots in which to pass lazy afternoons. The partially-covered terrace by the main villa is where you can enjoy al fresco meals at the large dining table, with an outdoor kitchen and barbecue. Wherever you choose to spend your time, when evening starts to falls you’ll be in awe of the breathtaking sunsets on show.

Within the vast grounds is a vegetable garden from which you can enjoy some delicious produce. Just strolling around the rambling olive grove is an experience, with even more countryside to explore in the surrounding area. Walk and cycle along pretty trails and through lush hills to get a feel for the laidback atmosphere and naturally beautiful landscapes.

Known as ‘The White City’ due to the whitewashed homes in its old town, Ostuni is just a 10-minute drive away. Do some historical sightseeing in this hilltop maze of narrow streets and marvel at stunning views over the Adriatic Sea. Also close by is what’s known as the Ostuni coast, with scenic beaches to enjoy at spots such as Lido Morelli and Quarto di Monte.

The nearest amenities to Dimora La Scarcella are in Ostuni (6 km). The city is home to many restaurants and bars, as well as shops and supermarkets for stocking up on groceries.

Known as ‘The White City’ due to its whitewashed buildings, the hilltop city of Ostuni is a great place to enjoy a day out. The old town is like a labyrinth, with a network of narrow streets and hidden alleyways. Probably its most striking feature is the 15th-century cathedral that sits at the heart of the town, along with the defensive city walls.

If you visit Ostuni on a Saturday then you can stroll around its bustling market, with everything from fruit and vegetables to locally-made crafts on offer. August is a great time to visit too, as the city’s historic Cavalcata di Sant'Oronzo festival is held over several days towards the end of the month.
Beaches along the Ostuni coast include Quarto di Monte (16 km) and Lido Morelli (18 km). Both boast a beautiful stretch of sand and safe swimming conditions for all. Rent loungers and umbrellas for ultimate relaxation on the beach.

Around 7 km west of Quarto di Monte is Parco Dune Costiere. This huge parkland is characterised by stunning sand dunes and wetlands, with sprawling olive groves further inland. It’s perfect for hiking and cycling, and of course, swimming in the sea! You can also go on guided tours to learn more about the park and the fascinating old buildings found dotted around it.

Visit the Valle d’Itria area with its woods, vineyards and olive groves that are dotted with trulli. These traditional stone buildings with conical roofs are unique to the Puglia region and are charming to see rising out of the lush landscapes. There are great walking trails to follow in and around the pretty Valle d’Itria villages, with Alberobello being one of the most-visited.

Parco Avventura Ciuchino Birichino is great for children to burn off some energy whilst having fun in beautiful woodland. There’s archery, zip lines, and various suspended walkways and platforms on offer, as well as the chance to get close to birds of prey.

The whole family will enjoy hiking, cycling and horse riding along the trails of the Ostuni coast, especially at Parco Dune Costiere. Follow paths through scenic olive groves, lush countryside and natural parks.

Around a 30-minute drive from the villa is Zoosafari Fasanolandia, a large zoo and theme park. There are roller coasters and rides for all ages and all sorts of wild animals to see, such as lions, tigers and monkeys.
