Villa Cristina is a really beautiful 3 bedroom villa in Puglia. The villa was newly constructed in 2016 and has been extremely tastefully decorated and furnished by its owners. Stylish touches create a unique holiday home.
Inside, there are 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a large kitchen and living / dining area. Guests enter the property through the kitchen. This is a beautiful hand-made kitchen, made of local stone with bespoke cabinets. It is well equipped with hob, oven, microwave, toaster and dishwasher. There is an under counter fridge here but, for those planning on buying a lot of chilled foodstuffs, there is another larger fridge / freezer in the laundry room. A large dining area has a table seating up to 12 guests. Windows on all sides of this spacious room provide fantastic views out to the gardens and swimming pool. Moving through the property, there is a living room with yellow corner sofa and stone fireplace. This room has a beautiful vaulted ceiling, creating a wonderful feeling of space. Each of the bedrooms leads off this room. All the bedrooms have a double bed. Two of the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms whilst the third bedroom uses a family bathroom. A laundry room is accessed externally via a separate door and houses a washing machine. The decor throughout is a clever mix of old and new, creating a warm and welcoming space. There is air conditioning in the lounge, bedrooms and kitchen. The villa is nestled within gardens of over 8,000 square metres and is situated just 5 minutes drive from Ostuni. The gardens are lovely, enjoying views of olive trees to one side and countryside to the left. There are many established trees and shrubs within the grounds. There is a stone built BBQ and an orchard filled with various fruit trees. An outdoor table and chairs provides seating for 6 and is positioned to make the most of the pool views. The pool itself measures 8m x 5m and is 1.2 metres in depth.
The location is superb if you plan to explore the area during your stay. Ostuni is just a 5 minute drive away and boasts a host of restaurants serving traditional Puglian cuisine. Also close by is the Torre Guaceto Nature Reserve. A mini shuttle bus runs from the car park to the beaches here. The sea is clean, clear and warm and it's a great place to enjoy snorkelling or other watersports. If you're visiting with children, then there are also waterparks and a zoo nearby to enjoy. The nearest bar / restaurant is 3 km away.
A note from Jo
We love the decor of this property. It's a clever fusion of styles which give the property a real warmth and character not always found in holiday rentals.
