Torre Piccola

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. The centrepiece of the apartment is the loft-like high tower room, lit via two broad skylights. 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, 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.

  1. Der Torre Piccola ist eine der schönsten Unterkünfte, in der wir bisher Urlaub gemacht haben. Nicht nur sehr stilvoll und Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet, sondern alles auch von allerfeinster Qualität und Funktionalität. Hier lässt es sich in heißer und sicher auch der kühleren Jahreszeit ohne Weiteres länger aushalten, dank der super ausgestatteten Küche und Dachterasse (inkl. Grill, Kamin). Die Dachterasse ist das absolute Highlight, wo man sich wunderbar zurückziehen kann und trotzdem eine einzigartige Erfahrung der über den Dächern von Nardò hat. Auch das Städchen selbst ist charmant und bietet gute Restaurants und Architektur. Wunderschöne Strände sind mit dem Auto gut erreichbar! Wir sind sehr begeistert und kommen gerne wieder!
