Overview

A vacation here is a magical mix of nature, sea, food, art, and relaxation. Over 50 million olive trees, miles and miles of golden beaches caressed by blue sea, and a fantastic climate with more than 300 sunny days per year make Puglia one of Italy’s most appealing regions. Here you can experience unforgettable food and wine and explore beautiful old villages and towns. Ostuni, the white city (in reference to its white lime covered buildings), is one of the many sites you may want to visit while discovering this striking region. And nearby, Villa Taras, surrounded by the silence of the olive grove and a mystical atmosphere, can accommodate up to 24 guests in its four separate buildings, and it is where large groups can have a great stay while experiencing the authentic southern Italian lifestyle. For smaller parties, the property is also available in the 8-bedroom configuration.

In each villa, the living spaces are modern, sleek and fully equipped to make your stay comfortable and relaxed. The monochromatic color palette exudes a sense of tranquility and the plush lounging areas scattered among the units create intimate vignettes in the otherwise large space: a happy balance between intimacy and conviviality. The furnishing is custom-built and reflects the typical local materials and its complemented by interesting and unique architectural details and colors, characteristic of the region. Each unit has the dining and cooking area adequate for the number of people it accommodates.

Three private swimming pools are available on the estate: the 8-bedroom villa features both a private pool and a rooftop pool, while the 4-bedroom villa features a private heated pool. Taras does not lack for communal exterior areas for enjoying meals together, under a portico, or near the swimming pool. The extensive grounds are ideal for kids to play outdoors while enjoying the Mediterranean sun. For the adults, the property offers bountiful fruit trees waiting to be harvested. For the adults, the property offers also the pleasure of plucking from the bountiful fruit trees when the season is right and enjoy the harvest from this generous land.

Villa Taras and its uncluttered casual elegance invites guests to unplug and unwind. The large estate with three separate swimming pools and the children’s playground is ideal for large families retreats. For those who want to enjoy also the beaches, they are a short 20-30 minute drive.
