An introduction to Casa Boccadoro

How would you describe Casa Boccadoro in a nutshell?

It’s a really peaceful place, set in one hectare of olive trees. I love the surroundings and the landscape. It’s at the same time remote and easy to reach by car.

When I was searching for a place, I wanted it to be easily reachable but also offer a lot of privacy. It has been designed so that you can socialise with your family and friends but each room has its own space. This was an important point for me. That’s why I kept the three buildings — the main house, the trullo (originally used for olive storage) and the lamietta.

What is the story behind Casa Boccadoro, what was your inspiration to create it?

I fell in love with Puglia on my first trip here 15 years ago and decided to search for a place in Ostuni because it’s really central. I didn’t want to build a new house — I wanted something historic and with the Puglian architecture I really like.

During the restoration, I tried to retain the property’s Puglian essence by using only local materials while adding modern elements.

 How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of Casa Boccadoro?

I worked as a model for many years but I am passionate about design and created Casa Boccadoro as I wanted it. For the project, I collaborated with two local architects and the restoration took two years to complete. In the beginning, there was no electricity or gas.

I really wanted there to be contact with the surrounding nature. So in the bathrooms, there are big windows so you can shower overlooking the olive and lemon trees. The outside areas are really private, so you have space for yourself, and the garden is filled with plants from the region.

To you personally, what is so special about Casa Boccadoro?

For me, it is a little paradise. I’ve designed it exactly how I like it and think it is the perfect holiday house for vacations. The huge garden means you have privacy and there are lots of nice places to relax with friends and family. If you like the Mediterranean spirit, Puglia and nature, you will like Casa Boccadoro.

Things to do in Puglia & Ostuni

  • Art / Culture
  • Wine tastings
  • Hiking
  • Cycling

I would recommend visiting all the little towns of the Valle d’Itria — Ostuni, Ceglie Messapica, Cisternino, Locorotondo, Martina Franca and Alberobello. You really need a car to get around but the roads are very nice to drive and the countryside is so beautiful. Polignano and Monopoli are also not too far away. I would also recommend visiting Taranto, which is a really authentic city.

The closest beach to Casa Boccadoro is Torre Santa Sabina, which is 15 kilometres away, and we are 20 kilometres from the beaches in the National Park of Torre Guaceto. On the other coastline, there are also beautiful beaches that are not so busy and they can be reached in around 40 minutes from the house.

The closest restaurants to Casa Boccadoro are in Ostuni, Carovigno and Ceglie Messapica. We provide our guests with lots of recommendations and ideas for grocery shopping, with most of the places around six or seven kilometres away.

The location of Casa Boccadoro

Casa Boccadoro is in the heart of the Valle d’Itria and surrounded by olive trees, vineyards and trulli. We have almost no neighbours but the road to the property is very good and it’s seven kilometres (10 minutes’ drive) from the old town of Ostuni. Ceglie Messapica is 10 kilometres away while Brindisi Airport is 20 kilometres or 30 minutes by car. Bari is around 80 kilometres.

For me, this part of Puglia is so unique. At first, I thought of buying a property in Salento because it has beautiful beaches. But you can find beautiful beaches in many places. This countryside, however, with its stone walls, old olive trees and small towns, you can only find in Valle d’Itria.

When is the best time to visit Puglia?

April to the end of October is the best time to visit. April is really nice because of the Easter celebrations — in Taranto you have one of the biggest Easter processions in Europe. The pool is open but it’s still a bit cool to swim. May is also nice and not so crowded in the little towns. June and September are the best months — there aren’t so many people and the water is wonderful. July and August you have the warmest sea but also a lot of people.
