Landmark sight
Sep 2019 • Couples
Villa Sticchi is a landmark sight in the seaside town of Santa Cesarea Terme. It’s privately owned so not possible to see inside.

Kitch but beautiful

Santa Cesarea is dotted with many weird villas which have been built over time in this fancy location. Villa Sticchi is privately owned so cannot be visited but its arabic facade and decorations can be seen from the outside. Elegant in its location.

Worth a visit if nearby!

A random moorish palace in the south of Italy. It's absolutely beautiful but seemingly private. But if you're nearby or if you visited Santa Cesarea Terme for the thermal pools, then it's definitely worth stopping by to check out the beautiful exterior of this palace.

Dominant position
Aug 2017 • Couples
The Villa Sticci has a dominant position over the central area of S Caesarea Terme. We believe it is used for weddings - but otherwise is clearly in private hands.

Great architecture
Oct 2016 • Couples
Unusual style for this part of Italy caught us by surprise as we were driving through the town. So we stopped and checked what is it. Villa Sticchi is in Moresque (Moorish) style as they advise on the information plate. It was built between 1894-1900 so it's not very old. View - stairs, columns, turrets - is magnificent, although it did not seem that it can be visited inside.

Moorish Masterpiece
Oct 2016 • Couples
Santa Cesarea Terme is a charming stopover on the coast road that follows the Adriatic going south from Otranto. Poised between high ground and cliffs this small Edwardian era resort offers some stunning views, none more so than the extraordinary Villa Sticchi, a moorish-styled extravagance that sits in a prime position overlooking the sea and town alike. The restaurants here only open in high season, but there are cafes and bars open all the year round. Well worth a pause and a gander.

South Spain's brims in fascinating usually less colorful Moorish architecture, Italy rarely so
May 2016 • Couples
A structure such as Villa Stitchi is uncommon to Italy. Located as it is openly, other than behind gates, yet privately owned and not publicly visitable, it still welcomes people to enjoy what they can of its compelling vista and surroundings. Out of season, when the owners are not there, people even walk on the seaside balcony without a problem, so long as they treat the property respectfully.I imagine in season such encroachment is impossible.

It's a wonderful place to see and takes me back to memories of the the Alhambra, Alcazar, Toledo and Malaga, but more emblazoned in lovely bright -rather than more typically subdued- colors. For it to be located in Puglia is a bonus. One can only hope that oneway twill be donated as a public museum for visitation.
