This elegant three-bedroom villa in the heart of the beautiful Puglia region of southern Italy is the perfect destination for a family or group of friends.
A spacious driveway leads to a private parking area, with an attractive courtyard. In the beautiful living room there is a traditional open fire place, a dining table for four and a sofa which can be pulled out to form a single bed. A large set of double glass doors allows the light to flow through the room, creating a bright and airy space in which to relax and dine, enjoying the calm of the surroundings. The spacious kitchen includes everything you could need to prepare delicious meals and snacks throughout your stay, as well as a breakfast table. An exterior door leads to the veranda, with further dining options.
There are three fabulous bedrooms, all of which have heating and are designed in a simple, elegant style. The first room features a queen bed with a beautiful iron frame, a small desk and chair. The second bedroom, a quaint twin room with two single beds, has beautiful decor and lighting as well as an ensuite bathroom. The final room has a lovely single bed at one end, with a very comfy sofa and chest of drawers at the other. There are two family bathrooms with traditional designs, and all towels and linen are provided, as is a hair dryer.
A vast veranda offers a huge variety of seating and dining options, including a pizza oven! A dining table for six allows you to enjoy an alfresco meal, with a little shade from the heat of the afternoon sun. There is a private pool, surrounded by sun loungers, where you can indulge in a refreshing dip whilst taking in the exquisite views of the vibrant Puglia countryside.
The wonderful remote location ensures peace and tranquillity throughout your stay, while you're only a short distance from a number of shops, restaurants and points of interest.

Tucked away in the region of Puglia, the ‘heel' of Italy that lies between both the Adriatic and Ionian seas, Villa Jana is the perfect central location for exploring beautiful beaches, fine foods and a little local culture.
Nearby are the famous trulli of Alberobello – the distinctive white stone huts with the characteristic conical roof, famous all over the world. This is a must-see for anyone visiting the region, with many selling artisanal, local produce as well as the occasional souvenir shop. In addition, the area is filled with olive groves and vineyards. In fact, olive trees, fruit trees and gently rolling hills of pastures and vineyards as far as the eye can see define the region, and there's plenty of pleasant walks to be taken straight from the front door.
The unspoilt coastline of the Adriatic provides innumerable opportunities for a beautifully scenic walk, with vast cliffs rising from the bright blue bays, and pine forests punctuating the skyline.
The Ionian coastline, by contrast, hosts hundreds of white sand and crystal water beaches, perfect for a traditional beach day! The nearby nature reserve of Parco Nazionale dell'Alta Murgia is home to Italy's last example of Mediterranean steppe, and is well worth a visit. For beautiful architecture, high-quality restaurants and a little retail therapy, the capital city of Lecce, known as the 'Florence of the South' is simply wonderful.
