La Casa Delle Luci is a graciously renovated farmhouse in the middle of the tranquil countryside between Cisternino and Ostuni.
It is delicately furnished and the natural colours of the décor combined with the skillfully rounded edges of the walls give it a very soothing atmosphere. The house offers many fabulous spots to relax in. There is a fireplace area, a small lounge room, two double bedrooms and two bathrooms with showers. The kitchen is the “spiritual” centre of the house with the antique herbalist counter serving as a dining table. The shelves are filled with jars full of homemade biscuits and almonds from the surrounding trees. At La Casa Delle Luci everything is thought of and you feel instantly at home. There are so many lovely details to discover that you almost feel like being on a treasure hunt. It is not surprising that the property has featured in several international publications on country homes, being a perfect example of how traditions can be embraced without compromising on comfort.
During the warmer months of the year the pool is clearly a big draw.
Trying to escape from the afternoon heat there are several areas shaded by trees or exotic bamboo roofs perfect for a siesta. Do you prefer the hammock or a deckchair? You are spoilt for choice.
In the evening the white pebbled space under the big olive and almond trees becomes a fantastic outside dining area. If you do not feel like cooking yourself, the owner also offers a take-away-service. Or perhaps, you would like to pick up some cooking skills? A cooking course in the kitchen of La Casa Delle Luci can be arranged, too.
While you are staying at the house, two adorable dogs will keep you company. They already have a large fan base! The dogs are well-behaved and will not enter the house or the swimming pool area, nor will they bother you around the outside dining table.
The little hamlet of Casalini di Cisternino is only 2km away and is the ideal place to stock up on your groceries, sample some excellent local olive oils or wines and try some fantastic traditional food. Otherwise both Cisternino and Ostuni are just around the corner, too.
