Along a sheep track, an unpaved country road, bordered by dry stone walls, made up of tuff ashlars, there are three parallelepiped constructions, hidden between the centuries-old olive trees.
These three country buildings are called the towers and are old shelters for farmers, who stayed there during pruning, plowing, or olive harvesting. Inside the building, under star vaults, there are a fireplace, a manger and a little wooden table. On the outside, there are fake stairs, that give greater thermal protection to the rooms and are typical characteristic with a contemporary interpretation.
The colors of the plasters derive from the earth: oxide red, the green of the olive leaves, the brown of the carob trunks.
Among dehors of various shapes, living rooms, kitchens and open-air dining tables, there are peculiar places: a garden suspended between a citrus grove, intended for small concerts, and a pergola on which multicolored bougainvillea climb.
The rectangular basin of the pool is contained by a landscaping arrangement that subtly suggests the profile of a vintage electric guitar.
Private pool for the exclusive use of guests: 10x4m, 1.5m deep
The interiors of the villa for rent, curated in collaboration with Spezyale Design Atelier, enhance the materials, themes and colors of the surrounding landscape through the solicitations and the encounter with contemporaneity. Thus a bathroom is bordered by yellow formwork wooden walls so as not to damage the pre-existing plaster of the other walls characterized by elementary graffiti that narrate the experiences of previous users. And the bright yellow in which jute is dipped, a material with a poor, raw and material soul, refers to the light of the Apulian sun.
