About the villa

With contemporary décor, pale stone walls, marble floors and gloriously vaulted ceilings, this gorgeous house is quietly secluded in private rural acres, and exudes an air of cool, calm relaxation. A cloistered courtyard at the front of the villa has an almost Moorish feel, with gentle lighting for balmy evenings, highlighting the Masseria’s graceful architecture. A larger courtyard, to the rear, is home to an unusually large swimming pool, with parasol shade for a poolside seating area, and a pergola furnished for al fresco dining. French doors lead in from here to the living area, where an airy sitting room, all in creamy white, is open-plan to the dining kitchen, its sleek styling softened by country fabrics. And, in a layout which would offer extra privacy for two families, the bedrooms are accessed from the cloister, two in the central section, two in the side wing, and all air-conditioned, elegant and uncluttered. Surrounding the villa, its own olive groves are perfect for a stroll through the gnarled and ancient trees.

This villa is particularly appreciated by families with a double and twin bedroom  in each part of this beautiful villa accessed from the cloister. All parties appreciate the consistent standard, large pool, privacy of the villa yet within very easy access of amenities and beaches.  Shops and inexpensive family friendly restaurants can also be found in Serrano and in and around other local villages. Many local villages host atmospheric food festivals and concerts. Beautiful sandy beaches including Alimini and Torre dell'Orso with beach clubs are within easy driving distance and surfing, kite surfing, SUP, kayaking can be enjoyed. Day trips on yachts can be enjoyed from Otranto during the season. Cycling is also very popular and bicycles (with guides if required) can also be hired. Salento, this area of southern Puglia is a unspoilt pocket of southern Europe dotted with beautiful towns, villages and superb restaurants. Interesting half day trips include visiting the picturesque old town and beaches of Otranto and Gallipoli and the magnificent baroque town and upmarket shopping of Lecce

About the area

Puglia

Average weather

Italy’s sun-kissed south is remote and quiet, with a gorgeous coastline and perfect summer weather that make relaxing in your villa that teeny bit better. Go beyond the lazy villa days, and this southern beauty has a wealth of culture and history that’s just waiting to be explored. Towns here are UNESCO-listed and its tiny trulli houses are world-famous. Discover an olive-tree studded countryside, relax in rural masserias, admire mysterious works of architecture and spend every day indulging in the most simple, but soul-stirring, food.

ESSENTIAL INFORMATION

Please note that there is a European tourist tax payable on arrival. Further details will be advised prior to arrival.

Having a barbecue in Italy is one of the best ways to cook your food but you may find that due to long drought periods in high season barbecuing may be restricted in some areas. You will be informed if this happens by your house staff or local representative.
