Masseria I Due Trulli – Gallipoli - Apulia
9 Bedrooms – Pool – Outdoor Jacuzzi
An oasis of peace and harmony, surrounded by olive groves and only 3 km from the beach.
Location and Surrounding Area. Masseria I Due Trulli is set in six and a half hectares of splendid, century-old olive groves. Their gnarled trunks and silver-tipped leaves seem to whisper tales from the passing travellers of bygone eras. From the villa, you can see the Bay of Gallipoli and watch the boats as you sip an aperitif from the shade of the pergolas.
Gallipoli offers visitors a splendid historical centre and plenty of sites of architectural and artistic interest. The 17th century baroque cathedral of Sant'Agata has a richly decorated facade and a polychrome high altar by Cosimo Fanzago. Both Gallipoli and Porto Cesareo are excellent spots for enjoying an evening aperitif as you watch the sun set over the water.
Porto Selvaggio is a fantastic natural oasis lapped by the uncontaminated waters of the Ionian Sea. This area of coastline offers both timeless villages and sandy coves worthy of a refreshing swim. The turquoise waters in the sheltered cove at Porto Badisco make for safe swimming and excellent snorkelling. According to Virgil, Porto Badisco was the site of Aeneas’s first landing in Italy after his escape from Troy but some historians dispute the fact and suggest the Roman harbour of Castro instead. Castro is another gorgeous, coastal fishing village with the historical centre up on the hill and the lively marina below.
Sports enthusiasts will be happy to hear that there are plenty of local facilities that offer cycling, fishing, scuba diving, kite-surfing and water-skiing. Or why not rent a yacht and explore the gorgeous little Island of Sant'Andrea?
Gastronomic and wine tasting tours with expert local guides can easily be arranged. In May and June, Masseria I Due Trulli holds courses in the ancient art of Salento sweets and pastries.
Masseria I Due Trulli is 200 km from Bari international airport and 90 km from Brindisi international airport.
