Masseria Le Carrube
Dazzling white-washed walls, pretty cobbled courtyards, ancient olive trees and impressive carob trees set the scene at Masseria Le Carrube. The super countryside location permits wonderful views across the green hills in one direction and the sparkling blue Adriatic Sea in the other. Grapevines ramble around the covered verandas providing a little shade during the hotter hours of the day and the thick stone walls ensure that the lounges, restaurant and rooms are comfortable in the at all times.
In keeping with tradition, Masseria Le Carrube is simply furnished with a mix of contemporary and antique furniture making for stylish surroundings throughout. White walls, local stone floors, polished and rustic beams compliment cosy alcoves, high ceilings and comfy sitting areas.
The 15 rooms are all different in size as the masseria has not been modified internally – some are on ground level and others are found up external staircases. Pale coloured bedspreads and crisp white cotton bed linen blend perfectly with the gorgeous Lecce stone floors and the furnishings consist of a collection of locally sourced furniture.
Outside guests may enjoy the peace and simply roam around the masseria – a super pool sits at the back of the property where you can take a dip, soak up the sun or just admire the wonderful lines of this stunning building.
The restaurant at Masseria Le Carrube serves only vegetarian dishes with most of the fresh fruit and vegetables grown in the gardens. This ensures not only some very healthy eating but also a fantastic array of innovative dishes and snacks that will certainly tickly your taste buds. Crisp white wines and full bodied reds, all produced in Puglia, accompany each dish and at dinner time you can choose a tempting “taster menu” with a host of different flavours or choose one of the delicious dishes from the a la carte menu. Light dishes and super salads are served at lunchtime.
With the sea just a short drive away, Masseria Le Carrube is in a great position to bathe in the sea and also visit some of the charming towns in the vicinity such as Ostuni, Martina Franca, Cisternino and Alberobello.
