— Irene and Barbara: “Rather than high architecture, it’s a really liveable design. It feels like your home but better!”
Interview By:

— How would you describe Villa Puglia in a nutshell?

Irene and Barbara: “A modern take on traditional Puglian life. Villa Puglia is a former farmhouse restored to its original beauty with a very authentic and modern design. Everything about the villa was carefully thought out in terms of the design and our guests’ needs. Villa Puglia is a luxurious, spacious and exceptionally comfortable house set amongst its own grove of ancient olive and almond trees in the Puglian countryside. It has been decorated with love for design and an eye for detail by meshing the old with the new. It’s a luxury design villa that offers inside and outside living at its best!”

— What was the inspiration behind Villa Puglia and how did it all start?

Irene and Barbara: “We’re both from the Netherlands but had been living outside of the country for many years. When we met in Aberdeen we immediately clicked — we had the same goals, wishes, and passion. One of us is from a design background and the other grew up in the hospitality world, so our skills perfectly complemented one another.

We had this idea to find a house in an idyllic location that felt isolated (without being too isolated) and that would be spacious enough for families or groups of friends to stay together. We’ve both moved houses a lot, so we were inspired to create a wonderful place that was our own while catering to the higher end of the holiday rental market. Originally the idea began in Spain, then later moved to Puglia and within 2.5 years, we’d realized it.”

— How would you describe the atmosphere at Villa Puglia?

Irene and Barbara: “There’s a little bit of Scandinavian influence and a homely atmosphere, coupled with a boutique hotel feel. Rather than high architecture, it’s a really liveable design. It feels like your home but much better!”

— Please describe the layout of the property.

Irene and Barbara: “Villa Puglia comprises a three-bedroom house and an additional guest house, surrounded by 2 acres of olive trees. From the main entrance, you arrive in a beautifully decorated hallway that leads to a spacious open plan living-dining area with vaulted ceilings and doors and windows overlooking the courtyard and the olive grove. This area features a dining table and a lounge area with a TV (and Netflix). The open-plan kitchen is Danish-designed and equipped with high-quality appliances, as well as plenty of plates, glassware, pots, and pans — everything you need.

The large, enclosed garden has various terraces offering both sun and shade. Outside of the kitchen you will find a terrace with design lounge chairs and the outdoor kitchen with a covered terrace and a big barbeque grill. On the other side of the house is the heated swimming pool. The pool has a shallow ledge at one end that’s great for young kids or just to relax on. Everything is on hand for a fabulously relaxing holiday!”

— And the bedrooms?

Irene and Barbara: “All four bedrooms have a ‘boutique hotel style’. The master bedroom with vaulted ceilings has doors that directly access the outdoors, as well as its own ensuite bathroom that is beautifully designed with a stone yellow sink dark iron tiling. The hallway also leads to two bedrooms that overlook the garden and the poolside. These two bedrooms share a bathroom with beautiful marble tiles and high design finishes.

The guest house is just a few steps away from the farmhouse. It compromises a very spacious bedroom a lovely sofa, perfect for some solitude. This very bright dependence is styled just as beautifully as the rest of the house with high design finishes and has a nice sofa that’s ideal for a little solitude. All of the bedrooms boast high-quality hotel beds, which guests always comment on for being so comfortable.”

On request, we also offer grocery shopping for guests prior to arrival.
