Villa Francois was built in 1892 by Paul Francois, a French noble who carefully chose the place to build his residence and had no doubts when, from the hill of the Cozzana district, an immense carpet of olive trees appeared to his sight that sloped down towards the large stretch of sea that goes from Polignano to Torre Canne.
In 1932 the Villa was purchased and the owners build the splendid Italian garden designed by the well-known nurserymen Brothers Sgaravatti of Padua and created the beautiful eucalyptus avenue.
The building, in a style between neoclassical and liberty, was entirely decorated in tempera by Cosimo Reho, a well-known Monopolitan decorator of the time and harmoniously integrates with the residences, obtained in what were once the residences of the workers, the stable, barn, stable and carriage room, to offer accommodation for forty guests.
In more recent times, an entirely glass pavilion was built within the large park and near the 22-meter swimming pool, respecting the patron’s Art Nouveau style, capable of hosting various kinds of events.
Meetings, congresses, receptions, weddings and anniversaries are enriched with refinement in a formula in which scenography and service are enhanced in a harmonious whole, coordinating with a personalized direction to give the success of a precious event. For some years Villa Carenza has also been talking about itself as a cultural container, promoting musical reviews, as well as theatrical and literary meetings, all of which are of high profile.
