High-quality surfaces, furnishings and services are combined with the typical shades of local colours, enriching the atmosphere of southern Italy

Perla Saracena, a luxury resort in Apulia overlooking the Torre Pali coast, is the setting for six small villas and three suites with a panoramic penthouse designed by the Effkey architecture firm. Nestled in the Salento landscape, these housing solutions are inspired by the rural charm of the local farmers’ “pajare” (stone huts), offering small pearls of interior design enveloped by technological comfort.

Light and bright rooms characterize these structures, in which water blade showers that provide a cervical massage, hand-painted Kerlite trompe-l'oeil panels and antibacterial floors coexist with dry stone walls, Mediterranean wood, local vegetation and natural stone.

Product used

Once again, the Modena-based company demonstrates its ability to engage with the architectural sector, offering exclusivity and luxury with projects that successfully strengthen its prestigious position, which it has boasted for over 25 years. The two ton-sur-ton shades in the Cement Project collection, chosen for the coverings used in the suites' bathrooms, convey a cohesive and contemporary effect in the warm, lively Salento atmosphere that evokes local traditions.

Cem evokes manually levelled concrete floors and is characterized by infinite shades of grey and its original glossy/matt reflection when exposed to light, which gives the space a bold style. The collections of Cotto d’Este, in the context of the enchanting Perla Saracena resort, accentuate the contrast between modernity and tradition, nature and urban style, while maintaining harmonious continuity with the outdoor environment.

Slowing down today, to come back stronger tomorrow.

Today more than ever, doing business demands a strong sense of responsibility as well as the ability to be flexible, in particular at a time as dramatically complex as the one we’ve been living through over the past few weeks due to the Covid-19 situation.

Right from the start we instituted a series of strict rules for the purpose of safeguarding the health and safety of our employees in the workplace, in full respect of the regulations passed by the Italian government.

Now we have decided to temporarily halt manufacturing in our Italian sites, which will remain closed for three weeks as of this Friday 20th March because of an external economic situation that is momentarily impacting negatively the market.

Nevertheless, the company is not closing.

We are here for you, and for those who wish to continue choosing our products and to whom we will guarantee the best commercial assistance and an efficient delivery service.

We are still here, with our continuous innovation and our ongoing research into new products and solutions that we will soon be proud to launch.

We will come back even stronger than before, ready for the new challenges that await us!
