Taras



Description


Welcome to Villa Taras, a lavish 12-bedroom villa estate, with room for a maximum of 24 people, located in the Puglia Region, the boot heel of Italy.

As expansive as it is luxurious, Villa Taras is a private estate, situated within olive groves and orchards to shroud it in verdant greenery; the villa is an impressive sight as you make your way up the driveway. Alongside the main villa, there is a guesthouse and trullo, an iconic building with unique features, exclusively found in the Apulian region.

There are outdoor spaces aplenty for folks to gather, among those being the three separate swimming pools on the grounds; there are one large pool and one rooftop pool on the main villa. A separate private heated pool is afforded to the residents of the guesthouse, meaning there’s ample room for guests to immerse themselves in the cool waters when the sun is at its zenith.

Surrounding the main pool is a stone patio lined with sun loungers for basking in the sun; an ideal spot for building up a golden Mediterranean tan. Alternatively, there are ample shady spots under the olive and fruit trees that are scattered around the property.

Inside, the contemporary look of the furnishings and minimal décor blend well with the architecture of typical Italian design; broad, round archways and vaulted ceilings can be seen in various rooms, while exposed stonework and brilliant white walls are common features throughout the estate. Smooth stone paves the floors in each building, both to regulate the temperature and keep the villa cool, and to inform the décor; a monochromatic palette of yellows and greys, with occasional pops of blue, can be seen in the living areas. Soft, comfortable couches, wooden coffee tables, and seats bring an organic element to balance against the stonework.

Each building of the estate has an area to prepare food and dine in; the main building hosts the largest of these, with a state-of-the-art kitchen filled with modern appliances. The kitchen also has direct access to the stone patio outside through the French doors, which makes the prospect of dinner al fresco irresistible. The services of a private chef, with an array of authentic Italian recipes and using local produce, will guarantee richly flavoured meals from the comfort of the villa; waiting for the food to reach the table is the only difficult part.

The bedrooms, while minimal in taste, maximize the space with luxurious beds and soft linens, that are a joy to sink into at the end of a hectic day; soft lighting and uncluttered rooms are designed to help guests to unwind and relax without distraction. Each bedroom is afforded its own bathroom, en-suite or private, with spacious walk-in showers with rainfall fixtures. The master bedroom is located on the ground floor of the main villa and is afforded its own independent entrance.

Location Details
Residing in the Puglia Region, down in the heel of Italy, this part of the country claims the prestige of having the longest coastline of any mainland region of Italy, which also means that there are a plethora of pristine beaches to choose from. Villa Taras is situated quite close to the picturesque city of Ostuni, also known as the White City on account of the white washed walls that gleam in the sunlight; a well-preserved city and commune dating back several centuries, Ostuni filled with a menagerie of structures it has collected over that time, spanning many ages and cultures that have come and gone. The villa is surrounded by land that is planted with olive groves and fruit orchards, thus maintains a distance from the public to ensure privacy and security for guests, but its closeness to Ostuni allows for easy access to shops and restaurants, as well as an abundance of historic monuments & museums.
Further afield, the gently sloping landscape of the least mountainous region of Italy is littered with historic landmarks and influential architecture. Travelling down the heel of Italy, Lecce (81km), a historic city that is nicknamed “Florence of the South” for its baroque styled buildings and architecture, Bari (89km), the capital city of the Puglia Region, and Brindisi (47km), the ancient “gateway to the East”, are all are full of sights to see and activities to do, with many features from bygone eras still standing today.

• Brindisi International Airport: 40.5km
• Ostuni: 4.1km
• Porta San Demetrio: 8.8km
• Ristorante Porta Nova: 8.5km
• Coopir De Laurentis Winery: 5.8km
• La Gilda Espresso Bar: 8.8km
• Blue Wave Beach: 18.9km
• Diana Marina Beach: 15km
• Savelletri Beach: 32.4km
• Castellana Caves: 51.5km

*We are now offering this property as an 8 or 12 bedroom property, and the pools can be heated on request (charged based on consumption - on average ~€400/week).
