Italian design gets a Scandi twist at Villa Puglia – a rustic farmhouse renovated by Studio Toff as a sleek monochrome retreat.
Located in the picturesque Valle d’Itria, next to Ceglie, the former farmhouse and agricultural buildings have been revived as a three-bedroom villa and guesthouse by the Dutch practice, which specialises in adaptive reuse and renovation projects.
A Dutch-tiled hallway leads into the white-washed living and dining area, which features vaulted ceilings and a series of doors and windows that peek onto the Italian holiday home’s courtyard and olive grove. The yard is connected to the kitchen and serves as an alfresco dining area, while the 17,000 sq m garden has a heated swimming pool, terraces, an outdoor kitchen and around 120 mature trees.
Villa Puglia is listed for €600,000 directly with the studio and is marketed as a commercial opportunity. It’s currently a successful holiday let and has been fully booked since launching last summer. Everything inside the villa is for sale for an additional sum (to be negotiated separately).
Mod cons include underfloor heating, solar panels, while furniture inside the 173 sq m Puglian holiday home has a Scandinavian bent.
