It is said to be Italy’s next frontier, yet most have not set foot in this part of the celebrated country. It is a region 800 kilometres long with glistening seas and fairy-tale landscapes that most people have not yet
seen in Italy, but to those who live here, this is home. It is purely Puglia. Puglia is an experience. You do not have to look for hidden spots or unconventional activities; you simply need to walk through endless olive groves, cycle over the top of a hill to find breath-taking views, trek in lush woodlands, sail on the crystalline seas, lose yourself in a historical centre or sample heavenly fresh orecchiette pasta made by our grandmothers to experience the unbridled nature that surrounds you.
Across the vast land of Puglia are thousands of masserias, traditional farmhouses where locals have dwelled and worked for centuries. Not only were they working farms, but masserias became the beating heart of Apulian culture, history and cuisine where Apulian traditions were born. Today many of them still operate as working farms with young generations producing the finest, most authentic Apulian products.
For our discerning travellers we hand-pick our private villas to suit every taste in Puglia, we would like to introduce you to a famous 15th century fortress by the sea, among the most important in the region of Puglia, and located on the grounds of your own vast private land. These villas comprises the Fortress and 6 other masserias, along with a private beach club – the most exclusive in the region of Puglia. If you seek live authentic luxury with the highest standards without impacting the history and the nature of this land then this is just the right place for you!
Dedicated staff cater to daily meals, shopping, housekeeping, concierge services and butler services are available excluively for you. Not to mention your complimentary access to a hybrid Lexus jeep for 5 passengers and a fully equipped outdoor gym in the olive grove.
Here you will experience historic charm and architecture, from original stone floors, preserved rustic stairwells, and perfectly-preserved traditional Apulian botte (round) ceilings. The light breeze from the sea wraps around the masseria, constantly sourcing fresh air in the most serene landscape. Amid sprawling lawns and velvet brown earth, 6.100 olive trees invite you to pause, breathe in and relax in their shade while the outdoor swimming pool is perfectly nestled in the womb of the land. It has been said, ‘this place feels like walking on magic’.
These villas are suitable for 10 guests in 5 double suites with private bathrooms. Each suite is carefully designed to offer comfort and privacy, with access to a patio or panoramic terrace. Facilities include a spacious lounge, indoor dining, two ‘al fresco’ dining areas, and fully equipped kitchen. The 200 square-metre outdoor heated swimming pool is fully equipped with cushioned sunbeds, umbrellas and tables, a shaded outdoor gym with Technogym equipment, yoga mats and complimentary bicycles. The masseria also has its own garden where fruit and vegetables are cultivated, where you will get a chance to experience zero-kilometre cuisine in the comfort of your home.
There is another seafront villa with 3 double bedrooms and ensuite baths for a maximum capacity of 6 guests. Each suite has access to a private patio overlooking the gardens and the sea.
