Situated in alto Salento in a rural setting, the house lies in 6 acres of olive groves, between Ostuni, San Michele Salentino, Carovigno, San Vito Dei Normanni & Ceglie Messapica, all these towns are within easy reach and offer, arguably, some of the best food in Puglia. Around 20 minutes from the sandy beaches of Torre Santa Sabina, Specchiolla and the renowned nature reserve and beautiful beaches of Torre Guaceto. The location offers a variety that few can match, culinary pleasures, historical studies or just plain get away from it all, this is a wonderfully peaceful place to relax and unwind.

The house has an outdoor kitchen with a barbecue and pizza oven, a large gazebo covered area for alfresco dining. The 11m x 5m pool is 1m to 1.4m deep, it has “beach” area for lying in shallow waters whilst enjoying the sun and is overlooked by another gazebo to provide shade.

Inside there is a light and airy living space including an open plan kitchen, dining and a lounge area with sofas and smart TV & WiFi. Three sets of French doors leading out to the pool and outdoor dining area. On the ground floor there are three double bedrooms (one can be used as a twin if required), all with spacious en suite shower rooms and built in wardrobes. There is also a guest cloakroom and the house is fully air conditioned.

On the first floor there is a generously sized master suite, which has an en suite bathroom with double basins and a large walk in shower. This bedroom has access to a large private balcony terrace, and there is also a west-facing communal terrace with open views over the delightful olive grove.

We are delighted to offer this stylish Masseria which is perfect for a family or a group of friends wanting to enjoy a relaxing holiday in this lovely region of southern Italy.

What our guests say

Julie W, Brampton

Beautiful villa for a relaxing holiday. Angela the House Manger was a fantastic help and organised a pizza cooking master class for us using the villa's wood fired outdoor oven. Would highly recommend both Essential Italy and this villa.

John de Vere White - September 2021, Dublin, Ireland

Now back at my desk I want firstly to thank both you and Julia. We ended up being the tenants from hell I am afraid. Things just went a bit wrong, the car breaking down etc. Please convey to the owners our appreciation of their generous spirit and tell them that Maria is a gem. Finally for your info Giuesspie, the taxi man was wonderful and took us around and added greatly to the trip. If I can post anything helpful about Essential Italy let me know. THANKS, John

Andrew Jones, Ramsey, Huntingdon

Fabulous Villa and Fabulous service thank you. June 2018

Louise & Michael Evans, Claygate

This is a wonderful villa in a beautiful location, very well equipped and spotlessly clean, very peaceful with a superb swimming pool. Essentially Italy were very helpful with all the booking and information for the villa and the area. Would highly recommend staying at this villa.

Jennifer Dickson, London

Really lovely and well thought out... a bit in the middle of nowhere but close enough to amenities. We had a great time. The house was beautiful and so well thought out.
