Masseria Blu – Ostuni- Apulia
5 Bedrooms – Pool - SPA
Location and Surrounding Area. The Masseria Blu features a romantic stone balcony and a spectacular azure façade, as blue as the summer sky in Puglia. The garden offers spacious, luxuriant lawns, a private pool, olive groves, flowers and Mediterranean vegetation. These lovely spaces, the pool, the relaxation areas and the spa with a Turkish bath all combine to render the Masseria Blu a perfect destination for a relaxing stay. It is ideal for both families and groups of friends.
The Masseria Blu stands in the exquisite, rural beauty speckled with the ancient olive trees and old-fashioned trulli so typical of Puglia. It is only a couple of kilometres from the fabulous White City of Ostuni and some of the prettiest beaches on this stretch of the Brindisi coastline. It is in an ideal location for discovering the wonders of Puglia: The White City of Ostuni is only 4km away and the characteristic villages of Cisternino, Locorotondo, Alberobello and Martina Franca in the gorgeous Valle d'Itria are nearby. Then there are the famous caves in Castellana, the Baroque city of Lecce and other pearls in the Salento area like Otranto, Gallipoli and the splendid Matera with its stunning Sassi (rock caves).
The Masseria Blu is only 10 km from the sea and the coastline varies from the white sand beaches of the Parco delle Dune Costiere and the enchanting coves of Torre Pozzelle through to the Torre Guaceto nature reserve, which is as much a paradise for beach lovers as for walkers. This area of Puglia has a mild climate and can easily be explored all year round. There is so much to see, do, taste and admire; the old villages, the beaches, the countryside rich in attractions, the exceptional local cuisine and delicious gastronomic traditions.
With so much else going on, make sure you don't miss out on the chance to kick back and recuperate here at the Masseria Blu. Not only can you revel in the sheer beauty of the colours and fragrances of the surrounding countryside, you can also relax around the swimming pool, try the tasty local dishes, get to know the horses and donkeys or take part in the everyday activities (making homemade pasta, jams and marmalades, tomato sauce, natural face creams and perfumed body oils). The owners are from here, live close by and are more than happy to share the delights of this beautiful area and pass on any advice to help make your stay here as pleasurable and as comfortable as possible.
The Property. Masseria Blu is a seven hectare, characteristic resort and offers its guests four independent houses, each with private garden and swimming pool. The Masseria Blu is the largest and most prestigious of these houses. It was built in the 18th century and was once the holiday home of a wealthy family from Ostuni. It was tastefully restored using high quality, traditional materials to preserve the original aspect. The resulting home welcomes its guests with comfortable, elegant furnishings and all the charm of visible stonework, antique flooring and period furniture.
The house covers a total of 250m2 over two floors. There are five bedrooms, five bathrooms (of which three are en suite), a dining room with a fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen, a large sitting room, a parlour with a fireplace, a spa, a Turkish bath and a romantic stone balcony which leads onto a spacious terrace with breathtaking views out across the valley.
