Masseria La Raganella Celeste is a masterpiece tucked away in one of the most enchanting parts of Apulia, Italy.
It is situated between Lecce and Otranto, 45 min drive from Brindisi airport; it sits in a centuries-old olive grove, only 10 minutes' drive from the sea. The masseria is a beautiful mix of modern detail, and traditional local architecture.
The façade – white painted, but with features in Pietra Leccese – enhances the bright, natural light of the Salentine summer and blends perfectly with the blue of the sky and the green of the olive trees.
Inside, traditional vaulted ceilings crown a practical and contemporary interior design. The main body of the villa is constructed in an L shape and comprises the “day zone” which consists of the living room, the kitchen and the utility room and the “night zone” consisting of the en-suite master bedroom, one twin and one double room, a single bedroom with two cots, and bathrooms.
By the side of the pool – just a few metres from the main house – is a separate building, comprising one double and one twin bedroom, and a bathroom.
Between the two buildings, the masseria can accommodate 11 people plus 1 child.
The landscaping is undoubtedly another important aspect in the overall magnificence of this masseria. The entrance courtyard has an impressive wall fountain, the pool area features ornamental olive tree flowerbeds – and the entire property is surrounded by a characteristic dry stone wall, giving its unique rural southern Italian style.
Masseria La Raganella Celeste is the perfect solution for families with small children thanks to the pool, which is made secure by a perimeter barrier fixed to the pool floor. It has also many outdoor corners for children: a little football pitch, a swing, and a basketball hoop – and well equipped space around the garden for reading and relaxing.
There is also a large pergola, which has a stone pizza-oven and a BBQ – ideal for unforgettable dinners “al fresco”.
The villa is provided with a wide, covered car park, an alarm system, air conditioning, and free WI FI.
