    Uncluttered minimalist design and unique personality, together with the architecture of the villa’s original structure, give the space a relaxed and elegant feel.  Lamia del Riccio is made of two main units, one of which is an old “lamia”, a typical Apulian dwelling which was used by farmers working their land. Adjacent to the lamia is an old Saracen trullo, a conical construction which is typical of this region and which Guests shall extensively admire in the near town of Alberobello.

    Lamia del Riccio is the epitome of chic outdoor living! The warm Mediterranean climate will make you enjoy the stunning private outdoor area that invites Guests to unplug and unwind.  With its sun-drenched terrace by the swimming-pool, a 50 sqm gazebo offering a fully equipped kitchen and more lounge areas with small tables and chairs scattered along the garden, this villa makes for an excellent relaxation destination, a real peaceful oasis. An incredible setting that encourages lazy days: from the outdoor gazebo, onto the sun deck to the immaculately maintained lawn, the outside of the villa is a superb area for spending leisurely hours, making it the epitome of stylish Italian al fresco living.

    The interior design of Lamia del Riccio – curated with superb care by the renowned Interior Designer Gian Paolo Guerra, is a stylish blend of old – the whitewashed stone, the trulli and the lamia on one hand, and new – contemporary furniture and sleek fittings, on the other.  The villa has been restored to retain much of the original spirit of the building while offering unobtrusive contemporary flair. All decorative pieces have been carefully selected, together with iconic vintage pieces of furniture that perfectly blend with the rest of the furniture, coming from the most renowned Italian design brands, such as Gervasoni,  Moab 80, Scic, Talenti Outdoor and Emu, just to name a few.

    The central lamia includes a comfortable open space with a living room and a kitchenette and 2 bedrooms, both with their en-suite bathroom, finest mattresses and high-end premium linens. The adjacent trullo, with its own independent entrance, adds to the original charm of this home featuring a real suite with a queen-size bed and en-suite bathroom located in an open alcove. The bathroom is a real “gem”: carved into the stone of the ancient trullo, it offers a double shower and an unparalleled cosy atmosphere.

    All bathrooms are provided with large showers and hairdryers and are stocked with luxurious courtesy toiletries by Essentia Puglia, a renowned Apulian organic and natural cosmetic brand providing the beneficial essences directly from nature, not tested on animals and without harmful artificial chemicals. Our Guests will enjoy a collection of shampoo, body cream and body wash made with extra virgin olive oil and vintage grapes from Apulia’s ancient olive trees and native grape vines of Alto Salento and Itria Valley.

    The ideal accommodation is 6 people, so that all Guests can enjoy their own private bedroom with its en-suite bathroom.  However, for larger parties, a double sofa-bed in the living room can accommodate 2 more people for a maximum of 6+2 Guests. Alternatively, we can also offer our Guests to experience what it really means sleeping in an ancient trullo: within the Property there is – indeed, a very small trullo with a sofa bed and a tiny bathroom (with washbasin, wc and bidet, no shower) which is the ideal place for larger parties wishing not to sleep in the common living room area and who prefer to enjoy their own privacy.
