Torre Piccola is a historic tower house with modern interiors in the old town of Nardo, Apulia. This heritage-listed tower has been converted into a holiday apartment, which expertly combines the historic substance of the building substance, an open spatial concept, and minimalist design. Two large skylights flood the loft-like high tower room with daylight. On the ground floor there is a kitchen, a dining area with a fireplace, and a living area. A filigree staircase leads up to the sleeping gallery with a double bed. On this level you will also find a single bedroom with an historic vaulted ceiling and the bathroom. One more staircase up you reach the roof terrace, a grand outdoor living room which extends over two levels. Equipped with sun loungers, a dining area and a barbecue, it’s the perfect place to enjoy la dolce vita – both during the day and in the evening.
What to do
Nardo is a lively town with a baroque centre. You can also visit the towns of Lecce, Otrano, Gallipoli nearby – and the protected coastal area of Porto Selvaggio.
