In a beautiful setting surrounded by the Salento countryside sits Villa Cristallina. With a lovely terraced garden and pool area, classic stone interiors and cities like Brindisi and Ostuni nearby, it’s a wonderful base for your holiday in Puglia.

Authentic yet elegant, this idyllic home features exposed stone vaults typical of the architecture in this region of Italy. The arched ceilings, white walls and minimalist décor create a bright and spacious feel, especially in the open-plan kitchen/living area. With sunshine flooding in through glass doors opening out onto the terrace, it’s a light and relaxed communal space for all to gather. Designer furniture and sleek finishings add a modern touch throughout, including in both of the bedrooms, which each have double beds and glossy en-suites.

This theme continues outside, where you will find a paved terrace with a central heated pool complete with a hydromassage feature. The pool is framed by sun loungers and parasols and the entire outdoor space becomes illuminated at night. There’s also a covered dining area, sound system and a marble bar, perfect for enjoying cocktails in the evening.

Beyond the villa, olive groves and vineyards stretch across the landscape as far as the eye can see, with traditional Puglian trulli and farms dotting the scenery. A 5-minute drive takes you to the nearest village where there is a handful of restaurants as well as useful amenities like a pharmacy, supermarket and bakery.

Amidst the groves and vines sits the little town of San Vito Dei Normanni. Just 7km away, it boasts an ancient castle, baroque church and olive oil museum and is a great place to wander around.

Ostuni, known as ‘The White City’, is a 20-minute drive from the villa and features a maze of alleyways and fantastic views from its hilltop perch. Its 15th-century cathedral is a gothic masterpiece that glimmers in the sun and is not to be missed.

The city of Brindisi, with its historic centre and sea-front promenade, can be reached in just over half an hour. There are also some gorgeous beaches lining the nearby coast, including Oktagona beach, which is sandy and has sun loungers and umbrellas available to hire in summer. Another beach worth a visit is Torre Guaceto, which is just 17km away. It’s part of a nature reserve and makes for a serene place to spend the day.

In the secluded Salento countryside, with olive groves, farms and traditional trulli dotting the surrounding area, sits Villa Cristallina. As well as beautiful landscapes there are several charming Puglian towns and cities within easy reach, and the nearest village is just a 5-minute drive away. Here you will find a handful of restaurants and shops plus useful amenities like a pharmacy, supermarket and bakery.  

San Vito Dei Normanni is an enchanting town just 7km away with a beautiful centre and lots of historic sites including Castello Dentice di Frasso, an impressive medieval castle on the main square. There are also some lovely baroque-style churches and a fascinating olive oil museum, plus great spots to sit and enjoy a coffee or delicious meal. 

Another destination definitely worth visiting during your holiday is Ceglie Messapica, which is just 20 minutes away. It’s one of the oldest towns in Puglia and is filled with Moorish houses, pretty palazzi and ancient churches. 

Just under an hour’s drive away is Alberobello, a town that has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status thanks to its iconic trulli that the region is so well-known for. It’s a picture-perfect place to explore and a must-visit when staying in the Puglia. 

Ostuni, with its whitewashed buildings and gothic architecture, is known as ‘The White City’. Just a 20-minute drive away, it is a fantastic place to visit and boasts incredible views from its hilltop position. Take a walking tour through the maze of alleyways to uncover the best vantage points and discover the city’s crowning glory, the Concattedrale Santa Maria Assunta in Cielo. 

A 30-minute drive takes you to the seaside city of Brindisi. Enjoy walks along the palm-tree lined boulevards and seafront promenade before dining in one of the city’s many restaurants. 

There are also some excellent beaches lining the nearby coast. Among them are Oktagona beach, which is sandy and has sun loungers and umbrellas available to hire in summer, and Torre Guaceto, which is part of a nature reserve. Both can be reached in half an hour and make for delightful days out.

    Lovely modern villa, prefect for a small family. As April we were able to enjoy the heated pool which made some of those cloudy days not so bad. Only downside was that nothing was in walking distance, but apart from that, all was well maintained. had a great stay.
