This villa is one of the most famous luxury villas in the Brindisi area. Commissioned by an architect for the original Chinese owner, the villa is modern and unique with a distinct “air of James Bond” throughout. Built on one of the highest points in Puglia it offers breathtaking views. No expense has been spared on the lavish restoration which retains a number of the exclusive oriental features such the indoor water fountain and rockery. Provision has been made for every comfort and luxury. Rarely do villas in Puglia offer the space and high quality facilities that can be found at Villa Whinespeare. Throughout the interiors, there is a stylish and indulgent atmosphere with the use of sumptuous furnishings and close attention to detail. A cinema-style projection system in the main living area means guests can watch movies on a 3 x 2 metre screen in high definition with full 1000w surround sound system, CD/DVD Player & IPod docking. Satellite and UK television are also available.
