Lamia del Riccio: A Classic Italian Countryside Retreat, Reimagined
An oasis of calm and style perfectly in sync with the surrounding nature, Lamia del Riccio is a stellar example of traditional dwelling renovation done right. Nestled in the Apulian countryside, near Ostuni, this family-run holiday home combines vernacular architecture with a modern Mediterranean flair, courtesy of Italian designer Gian Paolo Guerra. The property revolves around a newly built limestone lamia (typical to the area), but the master bedroom suite is housed in an original Saracen trullo.
The same refined mix of old and new flows throughout the interiors, which are masterfully crafted in a restrained color palette, with both contemporary and vintage decor pieces, as well as an abundance of natural materials.
The villa’s outdoor areas are equally well designed so guests can disconnect from the world outside and experience the real Italian way of life in all its glory - think alfresco meals with friends and family, aperitivi by the pool, and lots of dolce far niente moments to fill your day.
