Villa Cardo is a 3 bedroom house designed by Studio Andrew Trotter, who designed Masseria Moroseta. Like the masseria, Villa Cardo has been built with local materials and using traditional methods of building, to ensure the Pugliese vernacular shines through, keeping the building light, airy and cool in the summer.
The house is within one hectare of land, filled with olive and almond tress, and with views to the sea from the roof terrace. The sea is 7km away, with the amazingTorre Guaceto Natural Reserve being the closest beach. Carovigno is the closest town, and Ostuni is only 15 minutes drive. The house is 15 minuets from Brindisi airport and 1 hour from Bari Airport.
The house comprises of a large living room and large dining room, a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, with a bath and double shower. The main bedroom has it’s own veranda, with outdoor bath, and private garden with outdoor shower. There are a further two bedrooms one with a double bed and one with two single beds, that can also be used as a small living area. These bedrooms have a shared bathroom.
Downstairs is a TV room, that can also sleep two people, bathroom, and turkish bath with out door shower. In addition to the main house there is an old “lamia” country house, that can sleep 2 people with a large bathroom, that can also be used as a further living space.
Surrounding the pool, there is an outdoor kitchen with BBQ and wood-fired oven, dinning terrace, outdoor sofa, and sun beds. On the roof there is a large terrace with great views to the sea. Design Team: Andrew Trotter; Carovigno, Puglia; Photos by Salva Lopez;
