Torre Bianca

10 guests · 5 bedrooms · 5.5 baths
Cacti cast spiked shadows across the courtyard of this coolly modern enclave in Puglia. It’s all white walls and sharp angles as the backdrop to simple accents—a woven lantern, a wire chair—for a pared-down look straight out of a design magazine. Drive 2 minutes to the historic architecture and town square in Gagliano del Capo.
The heart of this villa is actually outside, in a courtyard with a swimming pool, a built-in barbecue, and alfresco dining for 12 beneath a woven pergola, where the sunlight and shadows are always shifting. Follow the steps up the tower to views over the town to the sea and, after sunset, switch on the gas fireplace.
Architect Lorenzo Grifantini designed the house to echo other buildings nearby, with the courtyard mimicking those of the area’s traditional homes and a tower to match the one rising above a church. Inside, however, the spare decor lets light flow across the floor, interrupted only by built-in sofas in the living room, the table in the dining room, and an island in the fully equipped kitchen.
The residence is a 2-minute drive from the center of Gagliano del Capo, a quiet village with an interesting mix of architecture that comes to life for an annual art exhibition. There are a few other towns within a 10-minute drive, as well as the Caves of Vedusella, where turquoise water washes against towering rock formations.
