Masseria Bellavista is an authentic fortified farmhouse typical of the Puglia region built in 1789 recently refurbished to provide modern comforts. If you ever dreamed of living like a lord with your own domain, with hot shower, this is your chance. Guests have access to the whole main building of the masseria plus outdoor spaces. It is ideal for a family with older children or several couples looking for a tranquil and secluded getaway that is still close to all amenities.

Unlike in a trullo, indoor space is plenty; there are 3 very spacious bedrooms fit for nobility, two with queen-size beds and one with twin beds. Two more additional twin beds can be added. Updated modern bathroom with rain shower and a laundry machine. While the kitchen is well-equipped with amenities such as stove, oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, plates and all utensils to prepare your own meal. Large terrace with outdoor furniture and equipped with BBQ with views of the olive groves and the blue Adriatic sea.

Do nothing and relax and lose yourself within the 14ha working olive plantation plus a citrus grove and fruit gardens or go for day trips or visit the historical centre and the Blue Flag beaches of Ostuni which are minutes away. Owing to its location off a major road, you can easily do a day trip to the famous trulli of Alberobello and the Itria Valley, magnificent Lecce and the Salento region, UNESCO World Heritage sites of Matera and Castel del Monte, or enjoy a gastronomic outing in neighbouring towns such as Ceglie Messapica or Cisternino. The choice is yours.

The Puglia region

Puglia is where Italians go for a holiday. Relatively unknown abroad, it is a hidden gem that slowly is being discovered by more visitors each year and for good reasons. Kilometres of beautiful beaches on two seas (Adriatic and Ionian), fascinating cities and villages like the trulli capital of Alberobello, the "Florence of the South" that is Lecce or Ostuni the "White City". These cities were often founded by the ancient Greek, and acquired their distinct cultures and histories from the succession of invaders: the Romans, the Normans, the Venetians, the Spaniards and even the Turks.

And then there's the food. It is a place, where thanks to the mild year-round climate, fresh local ingredients are the star of the dishes, and where the best cuisine is the "cucina povera" or poor people's cuisine. It is a heaven for seafood lovers for they are fresh enough to be eaten raw. It is often possible to buy these freshly caught bounty from the sea directly from the fishermen's boats.

Puglia produces some 80% of Italy's olive oil, and anywhere you go you see the silver-green carpet of trees, a lot of them hundreds or even thousands year old, a testimony of the region's history as a major olive oil producing area since antiquity.

Puglia's fertile land also yields another bounty, grapes, which are turned into powerful, fruity wine such as Primitivo or Negroamaro that are gathering accolades for their quality and drinkability.

It may seem that in Puglia there's always something to celebrate; it could be Easter or Assumption, but often the day of the towns' patron saint. It is a time to join in the festivities, eat and be merry and maybe try to dance the typical dance, the 'pizzica' said to help cure from a tarantula spider's bite, but these days just an excuse to let it go and to finally understand what it means to live the 'dolce vita.'

Ostuni

Ostuni, famously known as the “White City” for its white-washed walls is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the region of Puglia, the “heel” of Italy, and is a perfect base to experience this only-in-the-know gem of Italy as it is located between two international airports (Bari and Brindisi) and two international passenger ferry ports with easy access from various points in Europe, and is also well-connected to the rest of Italy by excellent highways and train service.

Ostuni is captivating and lively, especially in the evening during the "passeggiata", the time of the day where it seems like everybody gathers to make a "bella figura" and socializes with friends and family in Piazza Libertà (also known as Piazza Sant'Oronzo, the protector of the city) or in the winding steps of the medieval centre. When hunger strikes, countless dining opportunities abound in the area's chic cafés and restaurants (some of which Michelin-starred), all ready to offer the incredible gastronomic experience based on fresh local produce for which the Puglia region is well-known for.

Ostuni's beaches on the Adriatic coast are famous for the clarity and cleanliness of the water, and have been awarded Blue Flag destinations year after year. You can find white sandy beaches for lounging under the sun or rocky coasts (with sandy floor) for a reinvigorating swim on a hot summer day.
