Travelers looking for a designer holiday home in Italy will love this white stone bed and breakfast, perched on a ridge overlooking the sea. It’s not only strikingly designed, but it’s located in an organic olive grove near the famously picturesque town of Ostuni, Italy.

The owner of this property wanted a modern building that wouldn’t feel out of place among the ancient olive trees that surround it. To this end, he recruited designer Andrew Trotter to blend the traditional architecture of local masserie with contemporary minimalism. The result is a bed and breakfast that blends old with new – elegant lines with natural elements and rural simplicity. Recycled local sandstone, tufo, has been used throughout, and each room has a vaulted ceiling, with thick, cooling walls.
