Ostuni, Puglia

Have you ever dreamt of owning a century-old trullo in the Apulian countryside? If so, this is exactly what you are looking for.

This 7-bedroom contemporary villa in Italy’s Puglia region is paired with an authentic stone trullo respectful of classic Apulian style. A perfect opportunity for a life change, great both for large family living and holiday rental.

This recently renovated villa offers plenty of indoor and outdoor space, together with a stunning pool and the romantic trullo suite. Here you will experience the utmost privacy and all the comforts of a modern home, nestled in 8,300 sqm of land enhanced with a selection of olive and oak trees.

Outdoor living is easy by the jaw-dropping 10x4m pool, lined by a sundeck where you can place deckchairs for tanning in the red-hot sun of southern Italy.

Located in one of the most idyllic settings in Apulia, this stunning estate sits at about a ten-minute drive from the center of historic Ostuni.

Siena, Tuscany

Incredible 12 hectares wine estate located in the Val D’orcia near Siena, Tuscany, offering a beautifully restored country villa with a large swimming pool, together with 5 hectares of high-quality vineyards.

The current owners bought the property in 2002 and started the restoration of the principal buildings, annexes, and vineyards.

The restoration of the house and annexes used materials original to the house or recuperated elsewhere of the same age.

Everything was done to marry modern livability and property comfort with the highest level of environmental compatibility and strict respect for history, both in materials and architectural style.

The main villa, surrounded by vineyards and south facing, is set amongst the hills typical of the beautiful Tuscan countryside.

From the romantic fireplaces to the wooden beams and the arches, this residence offers a refined ambiance, welcoming, full of charm, and completely in style with the enchanting area.

The immaculate gardens lead to a large swimming pool and sun-bathing deck from where the delightful Tuscan countryside and vineyards can be enjoyed to the max.

The wine produced on the estate, praised by the American wine writer Robert Parker, is now distributed internationally.

The resulting high-quality wine is known as the Bordeaux wine of the Crete Senesi.  All machinery is included in the sale.
