At a time when every meter of land mattered, families expanded their farms by pulling stones out of the rocky ground until they created viable soil. They found a use for those stones, in building pajaras for the purpose of having a refuge from the summer heat. Form followed function, as the builders conceived of a barrel vaulted ceiling to help hot air escape through the top, making the inside naturally cool and fresh.

This is our third year of holidaying at this delightful pajara which has been imaginarily restored by the family from two outbuildings on the family 'estate'.

From the exceptional communication prior to the holiday; to the wonderfully warm welcome in beautiful Puglia, the Arseni family could not have done more for us.

The olive wood BBQ on the patio made great fun of cooking... more
