Three trulli cones, an oven and an old “lamia”about a century old have revived the site’s ancient appeal thanks to an accurate restoration and expansion personally supervised by the owner, a young Milanese architect who has always been in love with Puglia and wished to bring La Pietraia up-to-date while paying full respect to its ancient forms, colours and original materials.
The structure was originally used as a shelter for the vine growing luxuriantly here, favoured by the rocky soil rich in the minerals of the sunny and breezy hills of Ostuni. In fact, La Pietraia takes its name from the typical beautiful white-rosy limestone of Ostuni with which its trulli were built a century ago and are now brought to life in all their striking beauty.
La Petraia offers:
- three charming double bedrooms, two of which stand within the trulli, the other one features also a private and comfortable walk-in closet, each having its en-suite bathroom and independent access to the garden;
- an attractive and cosy living-room, placed within the ancient “lamia”, with an old stone fireplace and wonderful views of the pool and surrounding landscape; a kitchen with all modern amenities; and a fourth bathroom for guests.
- Every detail has been tastefully selected and installed, taking care to preserve the simple and authentic chic spirit of the place and guaranteeing an experience of elegant relaxation.
Outside, La Pietraia has: an infinity relaxing swimming pool with an enjoyable panoramic view; pleasant comfortable outdoor areas set in a Mediterranean garden with myrtle and mastic trees; a lovely dining area just below the olive trees in which to enjoy a “frisella” after a dip or dine by candlelight.
The spacious terrace on the roof overlooks a scenic countryside full of olive trees and forests of oak, providing an ideal spot to enjoy an aperitif at sunset.
The property is also equipped with wifi, Sky tv, climate control, automatic gate, video surveillance and a convenient and ample parking area.
