Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 7
This elegant Villa, typically called “Masseria” which stand for farm house, purpose built in local pietra leccese stone, stands in five acres of fenced ancient olive groves and its own courtyard garden with a 10m x 5m mosaic tiled swimming pool and a barbeque area.
The masseria is designed in an inverted U shape around a courtyard and can sleep 8 adults in four double bedrooms. One leg of the U contains the en-suite master bedroom with another double bedroom and bathroom. The other two bedrooms are in the other leg of the 'U' and share one bathroom.
In the central part of the Villa you find the open plan living room kitchen and dining area, and a small round terrace that gives onto the beautiful olive grove and the well growing orchard – ideally a lovely place where to enjoy breakfast. There are vaulted cloisters wrapped around the inner part of the U between the building and the courtyard which provide shady areas for relaxing. The masseria has four French doors leading into the cloisters so the outdoors can be easily accessed whichever side of the building you are in, while offering lovely views of the courtyard.
Outside a wonderful garden with covered patio with table and chairs is enjoyable for guests wishing to dine “al fresco” while sun loungers guarantee full relax at the large swimming pool (10 x 15 m). The garden is also equipped with outside shower, barbecue area, lawn and outdoor lighting . The property is completely fenced by dry stone wall and it's equipped with an alarm.

The main attraction along the Salento coastline is unquestionably the clean, clear and crystal sea, which affords the tourists an enchanting scenery. The Salento peninsula is a large plain of karstic origin; its small hills slopere gently towards the sea, forming the beautiful beaches and sandy shores, high cliffs that originated from geographical fractures , inlets, the sea cliffs, gullies, small ravines, islands and islets and caves that embroider the coast of fantastic lace rock. Furthermore, particular contribution is given to this beautiful scenery from the sea bed, irregular surfaces with grooves, caves and holes that make it a favourite destination for scuba divers. These natural features are particularly picturesque; the same flora and fauna of certain areas, the landscape around the towns, allow us to define the small Salento peninsula as a place of quiet and original holidays, for many travelers a real find!
