Tradition, exclusivity and an exquisite attention to detail and quality: everything you could ask for at Puglia's beautiful Paringa!
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 7 nights
Paringa is listed in affiliation with Olivers Travels.
During the first years of the last century, the Apulian countryside was inhabited by large peasant families whose life was devoted to farming work. The trulli where such families lived were full of narrow corridors and arches, with rooms made of stones that surrounded the main trullo building. All around these houses, wide olive groves became the centre of breathtaking landscapes - and these are the origins of Paringa!
The property's owners were overwhelmed by how impressive this complex of trulli really was, with the sun filtering through olive branches and the all-encompassing feeling of peace. Inspired by these elegant surroundings they have created a masterpiece of elegance and style, enriching the countryside with charm and beautiful details. Those who holiday here can’t help thinking of being in a paradise!
A stay at Paringa invites you to indulge in the extraordinary experience of sleeping in an Apulian trullo in total privacy and exclusivity. The property sleeps up to 8 people, and all indoor spaces have been planned and designed for total relaxation without sacrificing elegance or style. Paringa's entrance door opens out onto the main trullo, with its lovely sitting room and antique stone fireplace. This room leads to the sleeping area and the large lounge, which includes a kitchenette, a table and chairs and a double-bed sofa. The living area opens up also onto the veranda equipped with a table and chairs for outdoor dining and relaxation. The sleeping area consists of two elegant bathrooms with period furniture and shower cabins, two triple bedrooms and a double bedroom with a private bathroom.
Paringa has very spacious indoor areas as well as refined outdoor spaces. The olive tree grove is doubtless the property's centrepiece - this fabulous expanse of olive trees will shade you during your stay and is typical of the landscapes of Puglia. Guests at the villa can also enjoy a private and exclusive 80 square meter deck level swimming pool, equipped with beach chairs and is surrounded by a stone BBQ area and an extraordinary outdoor kitchen.
In the area you'll find Alberobello, listed as a UNESCO world heritage in 1996, Alberobello is a town full of trulli! These buildings (of which Paringa is an exceptional example) are the real testimony of an old culture and are an outstanding example of a type of building that illustrates human history. With their conical roofs, the trulli of Alberobello are the symbol of a traditional settlement, the bearers of a culture long gone but still very much alive. At just 5 km from Paringa, the karst Caves of Castellana are one of the most important and impressive natural wonders of Puglia. A visit to the caves includes an extraordinary guided tour through amazing scenery comprised of stalactites, stalagmites, concretions, incredible shapes, fossils, canyons and fantastic caves. Itria Valley is well worth a visit thanks to its picturesque surroundings and opportunities for fantastic walks and scenery. The cuisine of the valley also offers a wide range of dishes from carne al fornello (roasted meat), the capocollo (cured pork meat) of Martina Franca or the white wines of Locorotondo.
The countryside around Paringa offers you the chance to enjoy 65 km (40 miles) of Apulian coastline, as well as many idyllic Blue Flag beaches and marinas. Puglia is full of attractions and leisure activities for children too! At just 5 minutes’ drive from Paringa you'll find Indiana Park, an adventure playground located in Castellana Grotte. Here kids (and adults) can choose from a number of funny activities: rope ladder-walking, tree-climbing, cable slides and much more. If your kids like animals and love having fun on carousels, do not miss the Zoo, Fasanolandia, in Fasano. Fasanolandia is the first wildlife park in Italy, and one of the biggest in Europe. It gathers, indeed, around 1.700 animals of 200 different species, in a portion of Mediterranean scrub about 140 hectares wide. If water games and pools are your passion, visit Acquapark Eganzia in Capitolo.
