Villa Palmento, Puglia
Villa Palmento is a delightful Mediterranean residence of great charm. Its unique style, a mix of elegance and originality, is the result of an extensive effort in retrieving and highlighting ancient typical architectural elements that were included in the original structure, and combining them with oriental and contemporary design furniture. Situated within the historic centre of the laidback hamlet of Specchia Gallone, Villa Palmento is less than 10 km from the seaside resort of Porto Badisco and only a few additional kilometres from the stunning sand beaches of Otranto, the quaint seaside town of Santa Cesarea and the medieval village of Castro. All these seaside locations are easily accessible.
This fully renovated home can be divided into 3 units (A, B & C), perfectly located within the garden boundaries so as to provide privacy and tranquillity to the different family units.

The second apartment includes a double bedroom (B2) with a star-vaulted ceiling, a large living room with an independent access via the garden and a private bathroom/shower. The first floor can be reached through either an internal or an external staircase, providing access to two additional double bedrooms (B3 and B4) with wood ceilings, a shared bathroom/shower and a series of large porches, one of which overlooks the garden and others with a view of the old town’s roofs.
