How would you describe Il Tuffo in a nutshell?
Il Tuffo is a unique place if you are looking for peace, nature, sophistication and authentic architecture. Even if you are looking for a base for a day at the beach or a visit to one of the many beautiful towns in the area. You can enjoy the different outdoor spaces around the pool.
What’s the story behind Il Tuffo, how did it all start?
After a few outings in Southern Europe looking for the ideal holiday home, we ended up with our old love, Italy. More particularly Puglia, where we have had wonderful holidays for several years. A special region where you immediately feel very much at home. In the winter of 2018, we discovered Il Tuffo, a lamia that has recently been rebuilt by a Milanese architect duo. With a lot of love for nature and the local architectural style, they have transformed the lamia into a very nice place to be. A mix of rustic and simple.
How would you describe the atmosphere at the house?
Il Tuffo breathes peace and space. You feel connected to the environment, the olive grove and fruit trees. Life inside and outside seamlessly merges. A charming mix of age-old architecture and contemporary elements give a feeling of simplicity, harmony and authenticity. Surrounded by beauty you come to yourself completely.
To you personally, what is so special about Il Tuffo?
Il Tuffo is a wonderful place where you can fully unwind. This is partly due to the house and partly due to the beautiful place where it is located. You feel connected to nature and the environment. It invites you to relax, read, enjoy cooking and especially to dolce far niente.
What’s your policy on kids?
Children are very welcome. The house is equipped with a baby bed and a baby chair. There are also books and games for children. The swimming pool and grounds are not fenced. Permanent supervision of small children is therefore necessary.
