This is still a true, operational masseria, producing olive oil on a large estate. The owners have converted the main building and adjacent storage buildings to wonderful appartements (the owners live in the main building). We stayed in the appartement Buganvilla, which has a huge vaulted living, a large bedroom and a small attic containing 2 separate beds, OK for children but not adults because of the low ceiling. Bathroom contains everything needed, but is tiny (3 m2), a bit inconvenient for a family of 4.
The rooms are furnished with antiques and country-style furniture, walls are hung with antique prints, and decoration is abundant: books, ceramics, Shells, antique sewing machines (we counted 4 in our apartment) - it’s as if the owners have accommodated you in one of their spare rooms. And that’s how they seem to feel about it. It’s very authentic, personable, perhaps a bit quaint but utterly likeable.
The pool is excellent, everything is well tended and clean and the owners are most friendly, going out of their way to make you feel welcome.
The location is somewhat remote, the nearest town of San Vito has little to offer. But nearby Ceglie Messapica is a gem, and a 20 minute drive.
Great place, with much more individual charm than most and Yes, a touch of class. We liked it a lot.
We stayed 7 nights in the Masseria and had a great time. Excellent location, not only nearby Brindisi airport but also perfect to explore both south and north puglia.
The Masseria is grand and has lots of land surrounding it, making it a very secluded green spot. Beautifully restored farmhouse and stables and all very clean.
The hosts of the Masseria (mr Riccardo and mrs Sveva) are very helpful (booking great restaurants in the neighborhood), informative (suggesting nearby beaches), and overall really nice to chat with (both in English or French).
Mr Riccardo has a fine selection of local wines in stock and we also had two great home-made dinners on the estate (which is great if you have spend a day out and are too tired to go for dinner elsewhere). On leaving, we were even treated with two home-made jams, which will certainly help us to the autumn months to come :-)
