About the villa
A far cry from its forbidding past as a Norman fortification, this unique and now inviting house was also the 17th century home of a Maltese Knight. In the tower itself, with walls well over a metre thick, the sitting room is furnished with leather chairs and benignly guarded by a bronze black panther. With vaulted ceilings, At one end of the well-equipped kitchen, a huge wrought iron candelabra hangs over a big oak dining table, while the three bedrooms, each with en suite shower room, are adorned with oriental rugs and eclectic art.
Outside, a walled courtyard is almost filled by a solar heated swimming pool, its paved terrace furnished with a pergola and plenty of potted plants; and the gated entry courtyard has corner cloisters and a rampart-sturdy stone staircase to al fresco living on the upper terrace. With bikes at the villa and Carpignano just 3km away, Torre Pinta is 7km from the sands of Torre San Andrea and 13km from Otranto.
