Villa Santa CaterinaSalento, Puglia
Villa Santa Caterina is a gorgeous, contemporary villa with a large pool, sea views and lush, private grounds. It is ideal for couples or families who love natural surroundings, days on the beach and a comfortable base for exploring sun-kissed Salento.
Your drive to the villa takes you passed fragrant pine tree, vineyards, olive groves and flat, open stretches reaching to the sea. You find the villa nestled in the Porto Selvaggio Nature Reserve between the baroque town of Nardo and the coast.
Swing in through a large gate and onto a path leading to the villa. Surrounded by gardens on each side with a sparkly blue pool and dining terrace by the house, it is a truly glorious setting for a holiday together.
Follow steps up to the first floor and into a light-filled, open plan living space with a sitting area and kitchen. It feels immediately welcoming with its inviting, cushioned sofas, sleek kitchen and colourful wall art. Stunning views over the scenic, surrounding countryside to the sea beyond complete the scene.
On this floor, you also find two double bedrooms, one with a private terrace and both with their own en-suite bathroom with striking marble sinks and showers. Step outside and downstairs for the third double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. As you take in each room, it becomes clear that the villa has been designed and equipped with precision and quality in mind.
Puglia is a fantastic place for delicious cuisine, from fresh seafood to local wine, pastries, seasonal fruit and vegetables. Fire up the barbecue and gather on the outside dining terrace for long summer meals. Relax by the pool or on an outside sofa with a cool drink after an invigorating swim or game of bocce. It is all about life’s simple pleasures here.
Beyond your villa, you find a glorious coastline with a choice of wonderful beaches for sea swimming and sandcastles. Explore nearby white villages and towns, famous for their handsome baroque architecture such as Nardo, Lecce and Gallipoli. Check out their boutiques, bars and restaurants, then enjoy a drink or gelato on the piazza while watching the world go by. Be sure to stroll through their winding, cobbled streets alongside chattering locals in the evening for the full Puglia experience.
