A perfect place for an authentic Italian experience, this impressive family villa is secluded in six acre grounds, encircled with fencing and dry stone walls, and encompassing mature olive groves, and a vegetable garden.
Oleanders line the driveway to the house, where a gated entry courtyard has a central fountain and arched cloisters, and a spacious outer courtyard, fully enclosed for privacy, focuses on an inviting infinity pool. Set in a stone paved sunbathing terrace which is hemmed with lawns and herb borders, the pool is overlooked by a large gazebo with shaded sitting and dining areas.
An exterior staircase leads to the roof terrace, while, within the cool stone villa, stylishly furnished interiors include three double rooms with four-poster beds, a fourth children’s bedroom and an open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting room in modern monochrome.
Shops and a great bakery can be found in Carpignano, and inexpensive informal family friendly restaurants can also be found in Carpignano and in and around other local villages. Many local villages host atmospheric food festivals and concerts.
Beautiful sandy beaches including Alimini and Torre dell’Orso with beach clubs are within easy driving distance and surfing, kite surfing, SUP, kayaking can be enjoyed. Day trips on yachts can be enjoyed from Otranto during the season. Cycling is also very popular and bicycles (with guides if required) can also be hired. Salento, this area of southern Puglia is a unspoilt pocket of southern Europe dotted with beautiful towns, villages and superb restaurants.
Interesting half day trips include visiting the picturesque old town and beaches of Otranto and Gallipoli and the magnificent baroque town and upmarket shopping of Lecce.Read more...

Just arrived at La Taulera, sure I must have died and gone to heaven. This place is bliss, wish I had booked 6 months and not just one, this wonderful.
Thanks for all your help helping me to decide on our villa holiday again this year – Nick and Cathy offer wonderful advice and always very efficient – even returning calls during the evening and on a Sunday too! Thanks again guys
This is our fourth time we have used Nick to book our villa holiday – he makes excellent suggestions and with honesty as well – even taverna suggestions! So looking forward to the holiday in August.
Nick was a joy to deal with -all emails responded to super fast – expert knowledge of all of the villas as well – expert advice.
Being able to make 1 phone call and receive bespoke holidays quotes within an hour is the reason I keep coming back to you – Thanks for all your help.
I wanted a way to incentivise my staff and Perfect Blue Villas curated an amazing trip that did just that, not only did it boost morale, we had an awesome time abroad!
