San Cataldo - Lecce, Italy
Elegant Farmhouse in idyllic Apulia countryside
ELEGANT FARMHOUSE IN IDYLLIC APULIA COUNTRYSIDE
Salento, subregion of the southern Apulia stretching from Bari to Brindisi, is a luminous, sunny and warm land.
This wonderful 2900 square feet, five bedroom masseria (typical Apulian farmhouse) is set in an idyllic scenery surrounded by two hectares of land.
Located in an area subject to strict building constraints to further protect the local landscape, this property offers a great combination of unspoiled nature and utter relaxation.
The masseria is ideally furnished and perfect for more than one family. The five bedrooms are large and comfortable and the large living area features a beautiful veranda on both sides.
The farmhouse enjoys spacious green areas thanks to the large plot of land it is build on. The garden adjacent to the house is equipped with sofas, tables and hammocks for complete relaxation. There is also a beautiful pool which guarantees complete privacy.
The green spaces found here are the backdrop and primary setting for the entire property. Relax and unwind by the pool as you enjoy a drink with friends or family while admiring breathtaking sunsets.
This home is fully sustainable and completely self sufficient in terms of energy requirements: it is in fact equipped with its own photo-voltaic, thermal and rainwater recovery systems. The garden features only native plants and thanks to the owner's complete no light pollution approach, star gazing at night is a unique experience.
The masseria is perfect place to stay if you're seeking an authentic Italian getaway in the South: the Mediterranean flavors, both from land and sea, the many traditional festivals, the lively squares of the cities. Under the starry sky of Salento even the ones less accustomed to dance will struggle to resist the enthralling and hypnotic rhythm of the ancient "pizzica": come and dance in Puglia!

Absolutely Incredible 5/5
Wow! What a special place! Vincenzo was a kind and attentive host. He frequently left wine and snacks out for us. The pool was chilly but beautiful. Our rooms were comfortable, clean and spacious. The common areas welcoming...and made us feel at home. It sits in a quiet place surrounded by olive groves and is only a 20-minute drive from the old town. We took day trips up and down the coast, tasted wine, olive oil and the most delicious seafood! Our stay was dreamy!”
