This stunning country estate is easily accessible, yet completely private, and set in over 5 acres of ancient olive groves. It has 5 air-conditioned bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps up to 10 adults (+ 1 infant), as well as a 45ft X 15ft infinity pool surrounded by exquisite flowering gardens. Our property was a cover story for the prestigious UK's Homes and Gardens magazine, Chosen BEST PROPERTY in Italy ( as a single residential home) by the International Property Awards based in London (propertyawards.net/Europe). This luxury property is romantic, yet modern, professionally designed and decorated, and allows complete privacy and security. You are just a 3-minute drive (or a 15 minute walk) from historic villages with everything you need - markets, restaurants, shops - and just 10 miles from the sea with some of the best beaches (both sand and stone) in Italy and the Salento peninsula. The terrain is easy to maneuver, and you can bike to the nearest beach within 25 minutes. Be forewarned -- this property is hard to leave! The beautiful natural landscape as well as the inner courtyard garden paradise will provide many hours of pleasure and relaxation. There is a strict non-smoking policy.

The Main House

The interior has been professionally designed and decorated to make sure your every need is catered for. This building is L-shaped and has two separate wings: the bedroom wing and the kitchen/living area. The main house has 3 bedrooms (all with beautiful Leccese stone-star ceilings and air-conditioned with individual thermostats)/ 3 full bathrooms: 2 bedrooms have large king size 4-poster beds with ensuite bathrooms having walk-in rain showers and Phillip Starke fittings. The master bedroom has a free-standing hammered copper tub at the foot of the bed for the ultimate bath!

The middle room in the main house is multi-purpose: it can be used as a separate bedroom (with a single bed and space for a portable cot for a baby/toddler) or a dressing room or as an extra lounge for the master bedroom if a 5th bedroom is not necessary. This room has a large stone fireplace and solid oak built -in wardrobes.

In the middle of the bedroom wing is a full family bathroom with a low tub (ideal for children) that is accessible not only to the middle bedroom, but also has a separate, direct entrance to the courtyard. This assures privacy and is convenient for guests dining outside or using the pool area.

For ultimate privacy and convenience, every bedroom has its own entrance to the main courtyard and access to the kitchen and living area wing of the main house.

The Kitchen/ Living area

The main house has a separate wing containing a utility room, a large, fully-equiped modern cook's kitchen and a comfortable living area. This wing is open space with a long vaulted barrel stone ceiling and large shuttered windows to enjoy the sentient olive trees which completely surround the house. Each tree is a natural work of art, and are selectively illuminated for maximum viewing pleasure and contemplation from every room in both buildings.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a luxurious rustic feel, having multiple solid oak cabinets, granite worktops, antique sideboard, and a reclaimed antique wood table seating 8 with a large arc lamp hanging over the table.

The utility room has a long sandstone working surface, sink, lovely antique cupboards, large LG refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee pots, tea kettle, toaster, clothes dryer, clothes washer and dishwasher.

The living area has a smart 40" TV and DVD, two down sofas, large reclaimed wood coffee table, two large Vincent Sheppard side chairs with ottomans and a large stone fireplace at the end of the room. Next to the sofas are two large french doors which open directly to the courtyard. The view from this perspective is enchanting and romantic: three rows of fragrant flowering plants and bay trees, backdropped by the large illuminated infinity pool, and the courtyard walls covered in jasmine and bougainvillea. Words do not do this area justice!

The Guest House

The completely private guest house shares the inner courtyard with the main house. This building is covered on one side with vines of fragrant jasmine and is shaded by a beautiful blooming vine-covered canopy. Each bedroom has beautifully vaulted star ceilings made of Leccese stone as does the main house. With two bedrooms and a shared full bathroom, it is perfect for a family of 4/5. Each bedroom has its own entrance to the courtyard as well as a central main door that provides private access to the separate bathroom. One bedroom has a 4-poster queen size bed with large wardrobe and table. The second bedroom has three large twin beds and wardrobe. Two of the twin beds are Cantinori can be made up as a queen-size bed if desired. The shared bathroom has a large stone walk-in shower. Each bedroom has air-conditioning.

All rooms throughout the property have shutters and screens. If guests prefer, fans are also available if they do not wish air conditioning.

Main Courtyard

Beautifully landscaped and completely enclosed by stone walls and a large decorative gate, the main courtyard is a private haven that is difficult to leave! Both the main house and the guest house are contained within this lovely court. There is a 15 meter illuminated infinity pool if you are feeling active, or just laze around on one of the Vincent Sheppard sun-loungers (enough for 8 adults); or take a walk just outside the courtyard in our private ancient olive grove, fruit trees and herbal gardens. Back in the inner courtyard is a spacious outdoor kitchen area with a large stone wood-burning pizza oven, gas barbecue and a large table which seats ten. Also enjoy the expansive roof terrace with 360 degree views of Puglian sunrises backed by the Ionian Sea and gorgeous sunsets and star-lit evenings. During festivals, Pugliese love to put on grand firework displays throughout the summer and these grand shows are visible from the roof terrace.

If that is not enough, our property managers will make your holiday as relaxing and as hassle-free as possible. They can arrange for shopping to be done in advance of your arrival and have it unpacked in the kitchen waiting for you.

The manager will gladly arrange restaurant reservations, private chef, pizza parties, housekeeping, babysitting, spa treatments (services can be performed at the villa for your convenience and comfort), yoga instruction, boat hire, wine tours and tastings, cooking lessons, golf, horse riding, painting instruction, cycling, cooking lessons, historical tours and more. These extra options can be paid for locally at very reasonable prices.

We compile local information and use our knowledge of the area to make sure you have the best, most up-to-date information at hand to help you plan your holiday.

The manager will arrange to meet you at a convenient place, lead you to the the property, show you around and help get you settled. They will also be happy to arrange for any extra services you should desire. You will be contacted prior to your arrival to coordinate your arrival and handle any special requests you may have. The manager is just a phone call or email away should you need help or information during your entire stay.

Best nearby beaches & activities: Torre Del Orso: Intimate cove over looking the famous "two sisters" which are great mounds of stone that jut out of the water, a back drop of cliffs makes this the prettiest of local beaches. Don't forget to visit Dentoni's on the beach for the best gelato of your life!

Santa Andrea: Great beach clubs and good seafood and pizza restaurant.

Alimini: Crystal clear waters, great stretch of sandy beach, endless sand, and perfect for walking/running and sand castle-building, all set against huge sand dunes and wild pine forests. Very good amenities, excellent seafood and pizza restaurants and of course the mandatory espresso bar. A favourite of ours and 5 minutes from Otranto.

Amazing places to visit: There is plenty to do and see in Salento, discover the buzzing Baroque city of Lecce known as the 'Florence of the South' for a cosmopolitan experience with its many cafes, contemporary and traditional restaurants, shopping and street entertainment. A must see is the vibrant historic town Otranto (a UNESCO world heritage site), a seaside town and port with a lovely harbour and Romanesque cathedral with its famous twelth century mosaic floor.

Santa Maria Di Leuca: is on the southern most tip of the pernisula, a wonderful seaside town known for its lighthouse. Alternated by cliffs and small sandy coves and its many grottos make for the most wonderful and natural landscape.

Alberobello, Martina Franca and Locorotondo: further north of Salento, beautiful cities surrounded by stunning rolling hills, vineyards and trulli (remarkable little cone-roofed whitewashed dwellings that mushroom around Alberobello are a sight to behold and are now protected as a UNESCO world heritage site)

Ostuni: referred to as the white city is a hilltop town to rival those of Umbria, with Frederick II's 13th century castles.

Shopping: A welcome hamper of basics comes with the villa. For everything else you might need, Carpignano Salentino is our local village, 3 minutes by car or 15 minute walk and has everything you need including DOK supermarket, bakeries, beauty salons, ATMs, pharmacy, restaurants, a local weekly market. If you would like to have your grocery shopping done before you arrive, our property manage can arrange this for you as well. This is as an optional service.

A stunning property with 2 buildings, perfect if you want to rent a house together with family and/or friends. We stayed in October and I apologize for the late review! We are thinking of returning to Puglia this summer and if we do, this is where we will stay. Beautiful decor and spacious areas ideal for a grand holiday. The property is even better in reality than it looks in the pictures – it is decorated and equipped to a very high standard. It contained everything we wanted and was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The terrace and pool were gorgeous, providing a wonderful outdoor living space. With 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, it was perfect for our family reunion of 10 people. The property manager met us on arrival and was extremely helpful. She advised on places to visit and made many reservations on our behalf. As requested, she arranged for a private chef and a sailing vesseI for a wonderful day at sea viewing gorgeous Salento. We went to several beaches and visited Lecce, Otranto, Gallipoli and Santa Maria de Leuca. So much to see and do. Amazing wine and food. A dream holiday. We would definitely recommend this property to everyone including families with children. p.s. Carpignano is a nice small city with a charming historic center (three minutes by car), grocery stores, and restaurants. It is a good starting point for exploration of Puglia – loved biking through the countryside (amazing ancient olive trees!) to the sandy beach at Torre dell’Orso (30 leisurely minutes by bike). Too many lovely villages and cultural events to name.
My Response

So nice for to hear from you, and thanks so much for taking the time to write such a detailed review. We would love to have you return this summer - we have discovered even more great wineries which have expanded their wine tastings to include amazing food pairings and tours. If you plan to come in July or August this year please make sure to let us know if you would like a private chef as soon as possible. During high season, executive chefs are in high demand and we want to be sure and secure the best possible for you. We also offer a special surprise for returning guests! Looking forward to welcoming you to Salento again.

Amazing property

By Gabor C. on 24-Jul-2016

We had a fantastic vacation here. We were staying as 2 families with 2 little babies and we had an amazing time staying at the house, occasionally swimming in the pool, and exploring the surrounding region. Beautiful house in a beautiful setting. The property manager was excellent and organized babysitters, cleaners, and a private chef. The private chef Simone was excellent - he cooked great local food with amazing ingredients.

Un grand moment de bonheur

By Jocelyne B. on 18-Jul-2016

Cette maison de pierres chaudes, en pleine campagne, construite au cœur d'une mer d'oliviers ne nous a offert que des moments heureux. Installations impeccables, douces baignades de fins d'après-midi, repas en plein air au son des cigales, bref, le bonheur à toute heure du jour ! À souligner, la présence de plusieurs centres d'intérêt, tant historiques qu'architecturaux, la proximité de la mer et de ses très belles plages, la sobre et exquise cuisine des restos d'Otranti ou de Santa Maria de Leuca, sans oublier les vins exquis du pays. Maison impeccable, agence efficace et service très cordial. Nous y retournerions sans l'ombre d'une hésitation...

Perfect vacation

By Evelyn W. on 08-Jul-2015

A perfect home away from home. The villa offered all that it promised and more. Our hosts saw to our every need ensuring that each day gave way to enjoying the pleasures of Puglia, its villages, wonderful restaurants, shops and the sea. The home located in a beautiful, secluded and private olive grove, yielded elegance and comfort. There was much to see and do and we cannot wait to return to once again to this beautiful villa. Thank you Anna and Jiri for making our stay so pleasurable.

Beautiful holiday

By Petra F. on 14-Oct-2014

We spent a beautiful holiday here. Beautiful house in a beautiful olive grove. Facilities in the house was appropriate to my expectations of a luxury house of a farmer. The pool is big enough and pleasant water. The house and surroundings were clean and the owners very friendly and willing to serve you. The Masseria is very well placed for many different trips to the sea and the sights. I recommend visiting Lecce, Otranto and many smaller towns. Suitable for all who want to experience the authentic Salentino. The food is generally very good in Italy but the wines from this region are excellent. After this vacation I have only good memories and a lot of experience. We only recommend and if possible we like to come back again. Thank you. Martin & Petra

Amazing property and property management

By Jacqueline S. on 14-Jul-2014

This masseria was unbelievably comfortable for two families. It was gorgeous and the outdoor spaces were lovely for all meals. The pool is large and inviting. The decor and the manor itself are gorgeous. The property management was kind, efficient and extremely helpful. We would love to go back.

Beyond perfection in gorgeous Puglia!

By Annaly B. on 03-Jul-2014

My friends and I were searching for a well appointed, elegant home with pool to enjoy our holiday in Puglia. We could not have been happier with Anna & Jiri's gorgeous villa. The property is located in a stunning olive orchard, a short drive from beautiful beaches and about 20 minutes outside of Lecce (our favorite city in the area for architecture & gelati!). All rooms open onto an exquisitely landscaped courtyard. An excellent choice for 4 couples or a family gathering. Thank you Anna & Jiri for an excellent stay!

Perfect summer

By Anonymous on 01-Sep-2013

My family and I had a perfect three weeks in this gorgeous house. It is exactly as it appears in the photos; comfortable, gorgeous and convenient. All the listings were completely accurate and the house was beautifully maintained. The people taking care of you on arrival could not be more helpful; they booked us the most amazing restaurants and great beach clubs. We relaxed, ate and enjoyed being together in this little piece of heaven.

Beautiful villa with a comfortable relaxed feel

By Anonymous on 07-Aug-2013

This beautiful villa is set in the middle of beautifully manicured olive trees. My first impression (we arrived in the evening) how romantic the grounds were all lit-up. The rooms were immaculate each having their own private bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable. The main house where we gathered each morning for breakfast was clean and well equipped. We enjoyed grilling outside one evening it was fun. The pool was beautiful with plenty of lounging chairs and colorful flowers. This resort is a short distance to the local beaches and wonderful restaurants. We had great customer service the manager was available to us for any questions or concerns..We can't wait for our next visit.
