Villa Antonio is in the heart of the Italian countryside. You’ll love it because of the feeling of getting away from it all - with all conveniences and the fantastic pool you only need to send out occasionally for food and wine . Villa Antonio sleeps 7 so is good for families (with kids) and groups of friends.

The space
Villa Antonio set in the Valley D’Itria between the hilltop towns of Ostuni, Cisternino and Martina Franca. In its own very private grounds of over a hectare the villa is perched up high looking down over its swimming pool and orchard of fruit and olive trees and fields beyond.
Villa Antonio is a traditional trullo with a tall conical stone roof on top of each of the main rooms – five in all. The structure helps keep the interior cool in the heat of the summer.
There is also a delightful 15 metre infinity swimming pool set just below the trullo with a shallow 50cm deep end for toddlers to play, sloping down to a 2 metre depth. Gaze out over the valley from the cool of the infinity pool . Surrounding the pool is the “solarium” in full sun, with loungers and parasoled tables.
Overlooking the pool is a large gazebo with cushioned stone sofas and beautiful carved tables with room for up to 20 people to relax and while the day away.
Nearer the villa is a second gazebo with a long stone table with stone benches for dining. A stone arch leads to a walled patio with barbecue for romantic or more private occasions.
The pool is open from June right through until end October or longer by special arrangement. The water is still a little cool (by Italian standards) in May.
There is no lifeguard and so the pool is strictly for swimmers only. Under 18s and non-swimmers must be accompanied by an adult swimmer at all times.
Our agent, Nicola lives nearby and is on hand to help out with any concerns and provide local information. We are just an hour away in Bari.
Being out in the wilds the house is not connected to the mains - instead it has a large 70 tonne water cistern under the main gazebo which provides the water for the pool and the house.
Giovanni come every Saturday to top up the water and check and clean the pool but it is a self cleaning constantly circulating design with an automatic low-chlorine treatment system. This means it is much gentler on the eyes, tastes just very slightly salty and is just lovely to swim in.
He also looks after the orchard and does all the other maintenance at the villa - he lives nearby and is always available if anything needs to be repaired.
The house has its own underground LPG tank and a water boiler set into the wall outside providing instant hot water should you want it.
The house has 5 entrances - every bedroom with its own access in and out. Each door has a full height safety glass panel plus a separate reinforced metal grid security door with built in insect grille. This means you can have the glass doors open, enjoying fresh air in the night safe in the knowledge you are keeping any unwanted intruders out.
A full outside lighting system means that you can wander around late at night without getting lost or even use the pool knowing you won't disturb any one. The lighting is a subtle low level system and adds to the romantic feel of the place at night as you bask in the residual heat and listen to the crickets playing their sounds.

Guest access
Villa Antonio is set in its own large (3 acre/1.2hectare) private grounds. For avoidance of doubt: when you book Villa Antonio you are booking the whole villa and will not be sharing with anyone else

Other things to note
This villa combines the characteristic appeal of the trullo with is unique style and traditional comfort afforded by thick walls and conical roofs with the comforts we all want on holiday these days: mod-cons of a well equipped kitchen and bathrooms, tv/dvd, wifi etc with the self-contained luxuries of a large swimming pool, a gazebo for relaxing, another for dining, a stone barbecue in its own secluded area behind the villa.
All set in its own rural tranquility but within easy reach of amenities, charming towns and beaches on both sides of the heel of Italy.

This is a villa ideal for larger families or groups of friends. It can comfortably sleep seven and can accommodate an 8th by putting a toddler in a cot or a child on a portable bed.
Once here you don't need to move anywhere else - you have a wonderful swimming pool to swim or just keep cool in and a super large gazebo to relax under and keep your eye on the kids in the pool.

At Villa Antonio you have a choice of three eating areas: inside to avoid the heat, outside in the barbecue area or out at the top of the orchard-gardens overlooking the whole area at the stone table/stone benches under a beautiful gazebo. .
You also have three acres of grounds filled with olive and fruit trees to explore if you are feeling energetic.

An 'ear;y-retired' Englishman married to an Italian (from Bari). We bought the trullo in 2009 as a 'little bit of Italy' . Over the year we have invested much time, energy and money into making it the wonderful place it is today. We built the swimming pool in 2013 which has completely changed the appeal of the place making it entirely self-sufficient. Even in the heat of July, August and September there is no need to dash for the beach! I just love coming to Villa Antonio for the sheer beauty of the views and tranquility of the place. I feel very privileged to own such a unique property.
