Traditional Trullo from Apulia
About the home
A holiday for nature lovers & gourmands alike (the property is in the Costal National Park Otranto-Leuca) at the centre of the beautiful Salento region of Apulia, famous for the beauty of its towns, countryside and sea. The house is on 2.5 acres of land, rich with olive, fig, orange and almond trees, as well as an organic vegetable & fruit garden. All food growing on the land, as well as our home-made olive oil & tomato sauce, is available for our guests to enjoy.
The Marittima di Diso centre with cafes, a pharmacy and 3 grocery stores is just 1km away. By day you can lie on the beach, go sailing, biking and scuba diving in the natural caves or take a break at the spas of Santa Cesarea Terme. By night you can get lost in the beautiful architecture of Lecce (the Florence of the South) or have fun in the nearby medieval villages of Otranto, Gallipoli and Castro with their restaurants and nightlife.
The 150 year old Pajara is a typical example of "vernacular architecture" developed by local farmers of the Salento region. At a time when every meter of land mattered, families expanded their farms by pulling stones out of the rocky ground until they created viable soil. They found a use for those stones, in building Pajaras for the purpose of having a refuge from the summer heat. Form followed function, as the builders conceived of a barrel vaulted ceiling to help hot air escape through the top, making the inside naturally cool and fresh. In 2007 the house was renovated for modern comforts, while maintaining the original design and rich historic elements.
