Hiera

from€10,003/week· Villa

The magic scenery of Valle d’Itria in Apulia, where mainstream tourism has not yet caught on, won’t be a secret much longer! Its characteristic trulli (a version of dome houses), the dry stonewalls that surround vineyards and ancient olive groves, beautiful beaches with turquoise waters, and award-winning cuisine are attracting international movers and shakers, so do not wait any longer to experience the authenticity of this region. A fantastic place to select is Villa Hiera, a newly restored estate that updated the original rural architectural past with a contemporary concern for comfort.

The luxury property is composed of three independent stone buildings cradled in a beautiful private five-acre park and located an only 15 minute drive from the beach.

Location

What to do in Apulia

Apulia boast the longest coastline among all mainland Italian regions, lapped by the Adriatic and Ionian limpid sapphire seas. For the most part of the year, this region is soaked by the sun and cooled by a fresh breeze, making it the perfect summer destination for the beach lovers. In the last decade, however, Apulia has been stirring tourists interest for many other reasons. Conquered by many different ancient civilizations – Greeks, Romans, Turks, Franks, Normans, Swabians, Angevins and Bourbons - Apulia treasures an impressive collection of castles, great artistic and cultural heritage, and important archeological sites.
Besides the magnificent beaches and the crystal clear waters, Apulia’s highlights include the unique village of Alberobello with its white-washed trulli lining the streets, the natural wonders of the famous Grottoes of Castellana and Fasano, the baroque city of Lecce, Ostuni, nicknamed la città bianca due to the picturesque white stone houses and churches, and - last but not least - the captivating food reflecting centuries of mixed cultural influences. The only con to visiting this region is…so much to experience, so little time!
