From the owner

The Apartment:

Spacious two bedroom apartment perfect for either a family holiday or two couples who are looking to share an apartment. The apartment has been converted from the old storage barn adjoining the stable block serving the 400 year old farmhouse.

The stylish, central living area has a dual aspect that provides a bright and airy space with beautiful views from the kitchen, dining and sitting areas.

The en-suite bedrooms lie to either side of the living area, providing two separate, private areas in which to retreat for some quiet time.

There is air conditioning in both bedrooms (providing either cold or warm air depending on the weather).

The apartment has access to both the main internal courtyard garden and the rear terrace overlooking our grove of approximately 35 olive trees.

The Farmhouse:

Masseria Giulio is listed as a regionally important building dating from the early seventeenth century. It started life as a chapel serving the local farm workers before being used as a convent and then a monastery. During the eighteenth century it was converted into a masseria (walled farmhouse). It remained a working farm producing olives, olive oil, vegetables and fresh milk, cheese and meat from the animals (cows, sheep, goats and pigs) homed in the stable block until the late 1980s when it fell into disrepair. We have completed a full restoration of the property using local artisan builders and craftsmen and have converted the old stables and farm buildings into five elegant holiday apartments.

The apartments have been designed to provide stylish, high quality accommodation with designer furnishings to allow you to relax, unwind and enjoy this fabulous corner of Italy.

The large farmhouse garden (approx. 600 square metres) is surrounded by a high dry stone wall and has been fully landscaped with an array of beautiful plants including roses, birds of paradise, wisteria, bouganvillia and cacti. We have an orchard containing apricot, lemon, orange, clemantine, pomegranate, plum, cherry, kiwi, mulberry, pear, apple, fig and cedra trees. We also grow a wide variety of our own organic vegetables. Guests are welcome to use our produce during their stay.

Adjoining the masseria and garden we also have a small olive grove featuring around 35 olive trees. These produce two types of olives; one primarily for eating (please note that they need to be prepared and are not suitable for eating fresh from the tree!); the other type is used for making oil. We make approximately 30 litres of organic extra virgin olive oil from our crop harvested in the late autumn.
