Nature-Inspired Italian Villa with Private Pool
Tradition, exclusivity and an exquisite attention to detail and quality: This is what you can look forward to at a stay in Puglia’s beautiful Villa Paringa!
During the first years of the last century, the Apulian countryside was inhabited by large peasant families whose life was devoted to farming work. The trulli where such families lived were full of narrow corridors and arches, with rooms made of stones that surrounded the main trullo building. All around these houses, wide olive groves became the centre of breathtaking landscapes - and these are the origins of Villa Paringa!
The property’s owners were overwhelmed by how impressive this complex of trulli really was, with the sun filtering through olive branches and the all-encompassing feeling of peace.

Villa Paringa offers the chance to enjoy a relaxing holiday in the wonderful Apulian countryside. Alberobello is just a 10km drive from your villa. Listed as a UNESCO world heritage in 1996, Alberobello is a town full of <i>trulli</i>! These buildings (of which Villa Paringa is an exceptional example) are the real testimony of an old culture and are an outstanding example of a type of building that illustrates human history. With their conical roofs, the trulli of Alberobello are the symbol of a traditional settlement, the bearers of a culture long gone but still very much alive. At just 5 km from Villa Paringa, the Caves of Castellana are one of the most important and impressive natural wonders of Puglia. A visit to the caves includes an extraordinary guided tour through amazing scenery comprised of stalactites, stalagmites, concretions, incredible shapes, fossils, canyons and fantastic caves. Itria Valley is well worth a visit thanks to its picturesque surroundings and opportunities for fantastic walks and scenery. The cuisine of the valley also offers a wide range of dishes from carne al <i>fornello</i> (roasted meat), the <i>capocollo</i> (cured pork meat) of Martina Franca or the white wines of Locorotondo. About half an hour by car you'll find Polignano a Mare, one of the most characteristic towns of the Bari coastline. Thanks to its innate elegance and breath-taking crystal-clear sea, Polignano has served as an inspiration for many poets and artists. It has also been the birthplace of one of the most popular Italian singer, Domenico Modugno, whose bronze open-armed statue stands in a square of the city centre, and you'll also find some magical coastline nearby. Indeed, the countryside around Villa Paringa offers you the chance to enjoy 65 km of Apulian coastline, as well as many idyllic Blue Flag beaches and marinas. Starting from the impressive high rocks of Polignano a Mare to the nature reserve of Torre Guaceto, you can swim in the wonderful clear sea of Monopoli, Capitolo, Savelletri and Torre Canne, a thermal spa of the trulli coast. The local farms known as <i>Masserie</i> are among the most popular and famous architectural buildings of Puglia. They are a fantastic example of the rural culture of the land, preserving a sense of place and history. Spending a day in these farms will let you get in touch with the oldest Apulian traditions and the most authentic soul of Puglia.
