FROM NEW YORK TO PUGLIA
We are Silvia and Robbert, an Italian-Dutch couple that has been living in New York and Amsterdam for decades. Tired of the stressful city life we decided to move to a tiny house in Puglia. Here we want to reconnect with nature and work on our project of creating an alternative lifestyle in harmony with Mother Earth but still comfortable, abundant, and full of social activities.
ITALY'S MOST ORIENTAL TOWN
You will find usin Valle dell'Idro, the beautiful green valley 500 meters from the historic center of Otranto and the Mediterranean Sea. Otranto is the most eastern town in Italy where you can see the first sunrise. Our area offers beautiful beaches, rich history, cultural events and diverse nature, all close to the baroque city of Lecce and Brindisi airport.
We are preparing several hospitality options in our land but for now you can already stay with us. We have a beautiful historic villa available that can host up to 8 people. This villa is only a few hunderd meters from our land and also located in the lush valley Valle dell'Idro. More info here.
