Luxury Masseria in Salento
Nestled amongst 400 year old olive trees, this traditional Italian country house offers a serene hideaway for a tranquil vacation with family and friends.
Newly built a few years ago, the masseria was crafted by able artisans using “Pietra Leccese”, the local stone, by applying traditional techniques, resulting in a unique masterpiece of arches and 4 metres high vaulted ceilings.
On entering the main gate, you are immediately immersed in the property’s olive grove. Over two hectares of ancient olive trees telling tales of heritage and culture.
It is composed by a main building and a separate guest unit.
In the main villa building you will find an open-plan fully-fitted modern kitchen equipped with all appliances, utensils and two large fridges. The ancient oak kitchen table can sit up to 10 guests when fully extended.
The dining area features an impressive open fireplace built in “tufo”, yet another local stone.
The cozy living area is the perfect place to relax, watch TV or contemplate the tranquil nature surrounding the masseria.
The kitchen and dining area both have access to the internal courtyard as well to the lawn and olive grove.
The sleeping quarters include:
° a master-bedroom with four poster king size bed, closet, cabinet, desk and an en-suite bathroom with shower. TV.
° a twin/double bedroom with en-suite bathroom (shower).
° two twin/double bedrooms, sharing a spacious family bathroom with bathtub and separate rain shower. The two rooms can be interconnecting. One of the two rooms is equipped with TV and DVD player.
A second independent unit, built in stone following the traditional shape of a “pajara” (trullo with flat roof), is located 30 metres from the main building, between the kitchen/living area and the lawn.
The twin/double bedrooms en-suite (shower) and TV makes it an ideal room for teenagers, a nanny or visiting guests.
There is plenty of room for al-fresco dining, relaxation and entertainment. From sun-loungers to sofas, and two shaded dining areas located in either the landscaped gardens or in the main courtyard.
At sunset, head to the roof terrace for an Aperol Spritz aperitif offering spectacular views over as far as eye can see olive groves and white-stone villages. On a very clear day, you may even spot the Adriatic sea and Albania in the distance.
