Villa Eterea by Pino Brescia
Villa Eterea is a beautiful villa located in Apulia, South of Italy, recently redesigned by Pino Brescia.
Al fresco life at Villa Eterea is focuses around two main areas, both of which have magnificent bird’s-eye vistas that take in the town of Fasano below, acre upon acre of olive grove, the sparkling Adriatic Sea and, in the distance, the towns of Ostuni and Brindisi.
Villa Eterea features a fantastic infinity pool and offers a unique view on the Adriatic sea. Accommodation is spread over three floors. The main entrance takes one into the welcoming living room which offers stunning views and sliding glass doors opening onto a terrace that runs along the entire façade of the villa. To one side, the living area’s local pietra di Trani stone flooring flows into the dining room, which features a contemporary fireplace and more glass sliding doors that bring in the sensational views and lead out onto a covered section of the terrace.
The fourth bedroom, a double with en-suite shower room, is accessed via a narrow staircase from the corridor in between the kitchen and the dining room and has the added bonus of a large, enchantingly panoramic roof terrace.
Accommodation at Villa Eterea is completed by a fifth double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a small gym, on the lower ground floor. These rooms are accessed independently from the pool area and not connected internally to the floors above.
The first is a large terrace running along the entire façade of the house, accessed from a variety of points (the living and dining rooms, the corridor and one of the bedrooms).
A large covered section of this terrace is furnished for dining, sitting and reclining. To one side steps lead down to the second outdoor space: the fabulous pool area. Pride of place is given to the enticing heated infinity pool that really takes advantage of its unbeatable position. Surrounding it on three sides is a wide expanse of terrace with a variety of sun-drenched and sun-kissed areas. To one side of this area, doors access the fifth bedroom and the gym. Last, though by no means least, is the roof terrace, the icing on the cake for guests staying in the top bedroom.
