Expertly designed as a family holiday home by its architect owner and interior designer wife
This superb villa will delight guests of all ages with its effortlessly chic and friendly feel. Situated by the historic church of San Rocco in the village of Gagliano del Capo, the southerly location of La Torre Bianca is one of authentic charm. Local shops and pizzerias are a convenient stroll away, while beaches are within easy reach along the Adriatic and Ionian coasts.
From the outside, The white tower cuts a striking pose. Step inside and you are treated to a calm and welcoming living space with an inviting pool at its heart.
Large sliding glass doors connect the ground floor living area and kitchen to a wide central courtyard, carefully created to maximise privacy and space. Here you can prepare food and drink in an outdoor kitchen, relax on cushioned seats, play a game of table football and gather together at the shaded dining area for long summer meals.
The interior space is light-filled and open, combining local artisan woodwork and textiles for a homely feel. Upstairs in the tower, there are five bedrooms, each with its own en suite bathroom. From the tower, there are sweeping views across the village and out to sea. To the back of the tower, a stairway leads to a stunning roof terrace, ideal for evening drinks or a morning coffee.
The White tower is in an excellent location for exploring Puglia’s southernmost tip. Just 15 minutes drive away is the attractive village of Santa Maria di Leuca or the long sandy beach at Torre Vado, while interesting villages and towns such as Otranto and Lecce are under an hour away.
