Slow Living at Lamia del Riccio

Explore Lamia del Riccio, a charming villa in the heart of Apulia with an elegant yet familiar feel. Surrounded by the stunning landscape of the region and with a dreamy outdoor space immersed in the trees, the villa is the perfect destination in Southern Italy to discover its traditional culture and enjoy a stay in its truest slow pace and relaxation.

With an incredible variety of art cities, enchanting villages, monuments, artistic and architectural treasures, Apulia offers an intricate cultural heritage to be experienced and discovered, already loved and esteemed by international tourists and true connoisseurs for its wonderful sceneries and raw beauty. 

Apulia is often regarded as a small paradise: protected areas, natural reserves, plains cultivated with olive trees and vineyards, miles and miles of coastal territories that stretch between two crystalline seas, and the magical atmosphere and renowned hospitality of its inhabitants: in this small corner of peace and culture, Lamia del Riccio is a stunning villa nestled near the city of Ostuni, merging true Apulian lifestyle with incredible design and interiors.

Lamia del Riccio was born from love at first sight, as the owners visited the construction site of what would become the villa and saw the possibilities of their dream coming true. In 2018, Giovanna and her husband acquired the property and set to renovate the original villa and the two adiacent trulli, typical Apulian structures with an immense cultural heritage, to give the territory a new life and to follow the true purpose of the location, donating rest and quiet and a luxurious retreat to those who needed it.

Perfectly integrated in its wild surroundings, Lamia del Riccio's mission is to preserve the local traditions while offering an experience of true Apulian lifestyle.

A few steps along the access alley and there “She” is, behind that beautiful olive tree. White. Of a blinding white. The Lamia.

Interior designer Gian Paolo Guerra, an expert in combining true Apulian décor with modern design choices, joined forces with the owner to create a space where no object is casual and every accessory is the truest representation of the homely feel instilled by Giovanna and her husband. Far from just a revisitation of the rural lifestyle of the area and an impersonal design, the villa lies on the thin line between these two concepts for a stunning result.

In the rooms, guests are expected to find exclusive ceramics customized for the spaces by local artisans, textile pieces handcrafted using traditional techniques with authentic looms and vintage pieces exclusively handpicked from a nearby boutique founded by young entrepreneurs specialized in antique findings.

As Giovanna says, the beauty of Apulia and of the Ostuni countryside lies in the outdoor living, in the scents and colors of nature. This is the reason that the outdoor space of Lamia del Riccio is extremely curated and perfectly suited for family meals, explorations and leisure. With sunbeds and loungers around the pool, the villa gives its guests a truly deserved space for relaxation and enjoyment of the local life.

Explore Lamia del Riccio and the Apulian region by taking advantage of the local cuisine and passion for organic foods, take the time to wander with long walks along the olive trees and recharge in a unique setting.
