Villa I Tamarigi

Magical luxury villa near the beach


Dear visitor of our website,

Welcome to your virtual tour of our villa, 'I Tamarigi '. Perhaps we can help you dream of a great vacation here in Apulia.
By the way, Tamarigi translates as 'tamarisks' and those are the trees that make up the south view of the villa. They stand along the boccia lane and create pleasant shade for the players in the summer.
So after the total renovation this is the sight you will behold if you approach the villa from the parking area in the south.

You will immediately notice the bright, honey-coloured sandstone ("tufo"), which was revealed under a layer of the old plaster.
By now you will certainly have already taken in the curved walls with arched windows, which complete the upper facade. As decorative elements of the house they represent ionic-mediterranean lightness, but they also protect the roof garden from the sirocco winds, which in winter occasionally blow across from the sea.
From the roof terrace with the large dining table under the shady wooden pavilion the arches grant fascinating views of the close green surroundings. It is a very special experience to savour the colourful sunsets from here - add perhaps an ice-cold Prosecco and the holiday-happiness is complete!
At night, the sandstone arches are bathed in fabulous blue light as a widely visible landmark and accent of the Tenuta 'Tufo nel Blu'.

Follow us into the romantic garden under high pines. On hot days you will always find a pleasant, airy place in the shade to talk, read or dream. But it is not yet the time to try out the hammock under the pine trees - we continue our tour!
We leave the marble stairs to the rooftop to our left and go into the courtyard, the 'village square' of the Tenuta. The centre of life on the complex. This is where lively family parties and cheerful barbecue bashes with good friends in front of the big brick grill take place and where the residents of the Tenuta meet ... -- The courtyard connects and yet naturally separates the villa from the garden house 'Il Portico', just as one would wish.
Now is the time that we go inside the villa. Let's go from the terrace lined by palms into the luminous, truly luxurious kitchen diner of the villa I Tamarigi. This kitchen is certainly the heart of the house, an Eldorado for chefs and those who might want to be. It leaves nothing to be desired and is equipped with everything you need to wine and dine larger groups: a large 5-flame hob, dishwasher, refrigerator with industrial water tap and freezer, a giant oven, an espresso and coffee machine ... of course there are also enough pots, cutlery, nice dishes and sufficient glasses. You do no need to drink your rich Apulian red wine from water glasses: in the glass cabinet you find specific wine, champagne, brandy, beer and water glasses.
Integrated in the kitchen is the cozy dining area for cooler days - most of the year you will eat outside on one of the beautiful terraces. There are plenty of large or more intimate outdoor spaces with tables, chairs and couches - you have so much choice!

From the kitchen you get into the living room of the villa, 'I Tamarigi'. Again, blue is the favourite colour and also here the old sandstone was brought to light. From the comfortable sofas you look through the high arched windows onto the romantic garden. Especially in the cooler season this is a place for reading, listening to music and talking - or for relaxing movie nights, as the living room contains not only a music system but also a flat-screen television with all satellite programs (Astra) and a DVD player. Our extensive DVD collection is available to our guests as well as the CD collection and the library. On colder winter evenings, you can also light the cosy ceramic stove, in addition to the central heating, and enjoy the flickering fire. The whole house is very generous and elegant, but also furnished to be easy to clean - with real wood furniture, Terra-cotta tiles, airy curtains ...
Let's walk now into the part of the house with the bedrooms: Three double rooms, each with its own comfortable bed guarantee a peaceful night's sleep. Air conditioners and central heating in all bedrooms contribute to your comfort. Of course there are side tables and reading lights at each bed; large stonewall closets offer enough storage room for your personal items. One of the three double beds can be transformed into two separate single beds. On demand we will provide free of charge a baby cot.
All three bathrooms have an extra large shower, bidet, sink and toilet and enough hooks and shelves for your towels and the many other items, which are necessary in a bathroom.  In every bathroom there is also a hairdryer.

As well as the three bathrooms there is also a practical hot outdoor shower that you will not only appreciate if you return with sandy feet from the beach. But also very practical is the toilet next to the garden door as close as possible to the beach. Next door in the laundry room with the washing machine you also find umbrellas and loungers for the beach and other beach paraphernalia. Even toys for the children to play with in the sand are available.
The table tennis is always ready on the playground in the garden. In the evening a strong spotlight gives enough light for a nightly table tennis tournament.
But we now go up the comfortable marble stairs to the sun deck of the villa ,I Tamarigi'. Here are comfortable sun beds for long sunbathing sessions or a quiet midday nap. Here on the roof terrace we end our tour around the villa ,I Tamarigi' for today.
We make sure that you can enjoy your holiday from the first moment! Your vacation home is spotless and tidy, your beds are prepared with fresh linen, ... on the table is your first bottle of Apulian red wine as a welcome gift. Leave everything behind and enjoy!
If you wish, you can mail us your shopping list and you will find everything in your refrigerator for your first dinner.
Still other wishes? No problem. Welcome to paradise!
The Villa 'I Tamarigi' belongs together with the garden house 'Il Portico' to the 1000 sq. m. Tenuta 'Tufo nel Blu'. The whole Tenuta can easily accommodate ten or more persons.
If you are one of the lucky ones who will spend a holiday here in Monaco Mirante, we wish you a an enjoyable run-up to your break in Puglia.

We hope to see you soon in Monaco Mirante,

your Walburga and Gianni Di Carlo

The quiet little agglomeration of Monaco Mirante lies on the Gulf of Taranto, 3 km southeast of the beach resort and small seaport Campomarino, on the Ionian Sea. Our romantic Mediterranean garden is surrounded by a coastal landscape: dunes, beach and sea in the front, gardens, vineyards and olive groves at the back. On narrow streets winding their way through vinyards and olive trees more than a hundred years old, you can reach the typical Apulian town of Maruggio with its friendly and hospitable inhabitants in a few minutes by bicycle. Here, you find all you need for your vacation. The larger cities of Lecce, Taranto and Brindisi, all well worth a visit, are less than 1 hour by car away. Coming from the north (Rome, Napoli, Bari), you follow the Adriatic highway all the way to Taranto, then it is less than an hour to Monaco Mirante. The airports of Brindisi and Bari are about 60 or 100 mins respectively away.

Enjoy your holidays from the very first moment on. Your holiday home is spotlessly clean and well appointed, your beds are made and as your introduction to the delights of Puglia you will find your first bottle of local red wine welcoming you on the table. If you want, send us a shopping list and you'll find everything you need for your first Italian meal in the kitchen. Anything else we can do? No problem! Welcome to Puglia  - enjoy yourself!
