While Tuscany remains the number one tourist destination in Italy, slowly and steadily, Apulia’s hospitality is drawing more and more visitors to the region. Pristine beaches, serene olive groves landscapes, quaint fishermen villages, gastronomic delights, significant archeological sites, and most importantly, a gentler pace of life, draw the well-traveled to this area. Immersed in the typical Apulian naturalistic context, Frondesca, a six-bedroom villa that sleeps 12, is only 20 minutes by car to the beaches and the turquoise sea. The beautifully whitewashed property spans over two independent wings connected by a central section of trulli (a typical Apulian construction). It features a private garden with wisteria-draped alfresco dining space overlooking the shimmering pool, and its own vegetable garden at guest’s disposal to pick the fruits of the season.

All bedrooms have direct garden access and air conditioning; all bathrooms are provided with hair dryers.

The villa has a rustic and uncluttered appearance reflecting the latest decor trends. To warm up the ambiance, the use of natural materials – such as drapey soft fabric, repurposed furniture, white local stone floor – contribute in making Villa Frondesca a truly special place. The arched ceilings of the trulli section, a large fireplace, and the full-view windows make for very comfortable interiors and yet preserve the antique flavor of the building’s rural origins. The fully equipped kitchen is an inviting space for the group to share. A central island with natural-colored stone countertop looks great on the same color floor, and the white light fixtures on the ceiling, combined with the rustic simple barstools, add a unique touch.

The Mediterranean vegetation surrounds the beautiful property creating the perfect private refuge. A sun-drenched swimming pool is located in the garden, in front of the verdant pergola and the BBQ area – inclusive of a wood-burning pizza oven. This outdoor section is the ideal stage for enjoying breakfast, lunch or dinner, or just relaxing in the sun. On the opposite side of the property another swimming pool is available. Who said that more is just more? Having an additional swimming pool at your disposal might encourage you to actively use it to exercise in the water while the rest of your party uses the main one in a more leisurely way. For the kids, or for the young-at-heart in your group, a table tennis and foosball table are also available.

A/C, heating, unlimited Wi-Fi; smart large TV with Netflix, dishwasher; washing machine, fireplace, hairdryers, two private swimming pools, table tennis table and foosball table, BBQ, pizza oven, herb and vegetable garden, ample private parking.

The facades of the villa are white, reflecting the Apulian sunlight – the structure of the building, complemented by the trulli, cannot exude more the local identity of the place.
This one-floor villa offers a range of features and amenities designed to cater to the needs of families with children: easy access (no steps from the parking area to the villa), large outdoor areas, and many entertainment options. If your concept of vacation is experiencing quality time with your friends, enjoying your family without distractions, discovering new places, or just spending some time living simple pleasures, Villa Frondesca is perfect for you.

Apulia boast the longest coastline among all mainland Italian regions, lapped by the Adriatic and Ionian limpid sapphire seas. For the most part of the year, this region is soaked by the sun and cooled by a fresh breeze, making it the perfect summer destination for the beach lovers. In the last decade, however, Apulia has been stirring tourists interest for many other reasons. Conquered by many different ancient civilizations – Greeks, Romans, Turks, Franks, Normans, Swabians, Angevins and Bourbons – Apulia treasures an impressive collection of castles, great artistic and cultural heritage, and important archeological sites. Besides the magnificent beaches and the crystal clear waters, Apulia’s highlights include the unique village of Alberobello with its white-washed trulli lining the streets, the natural wonders of the famous Grottoes of Castellana and Fasano, the baroque city of Lecce, Ostuni, nicknamed la città bianca due to the picturesque white stone houses and churches, and – last but not least – the captivating food reflecting centuries of mixed cultural influences. The only con to visiting this region is…so much to experience, so little time!
