Masseria Salentina

Location and Surrounding Area

Located in one of the most appreciated areas in Southern Apulia, just a few kilometers from the coast, this exceptional eight-bedroom masseria is ideally situated to offer complete relaxation and privacy to its guests, providing an opulent escape for those who want to explore this exclusive area. Famous for its whitewashed towns, excellent food, dramatic coastal cliffs and beautiful beaches, this area of Southern Apulia features all the ingredients for the perfect vacation.

The villa is also a few kilometers from Otranto, a natural bridge between the Mediterranean and the East, and a charming land where the ancient atmosphere of the historic center goes hand in hand with a lively nightlife. Lying deep in Italy’s stiletto, Otranto has back-heeled quite a few invaders over the centuries and been brutally kicked by others. Sleuth around its compact old quarter and you can peel the past off in layers: Greek, Roman, Turkish and Napoleonic.

Bequeathed with baroque buildings by 17th-century architects, Lecce has a completeness and homogeneity that other southern Italian metropolises lack. Indeed, so distinctive is Lecce’s architecture that it has acquired its own moniker, Lecce baroque, an expressive and decorative incarnation of the genre replete with gargoyles, asparagus columns and cavorting gremlins. Swooning 18th-century traveler Thomas Ashe thought it as the most beautiful city in Italy.

Porto Cesareo sits on a prestigious part of the Ionian coast, enjoying a long stretch of beach and sparkling clean seas. The popular seaside resort has an amazing 17 km of golden beach facing an archipelago of low-lying islands that form a protected bay. The water is calm and clear. Porto Cesareo is also the home of a nature preserve that is a marine protected area rich in flora and fauna with very rare species. Underwater excursions allow for viewing of the unique coral formations, turtles, sea horses, and other marine life.

Santa Maria di Leuca boasts one of the biggest and most fascinating tourist ports in Salento, with 760 mooring places that can accommodate boats up to 40 meters long. The coast, surrounded by Punta Ristola and Punta Meliso, alternates cliffs and beaches, with the characteristic “bagnarole” made of stone. In Leuca, you will also find the fascinating marine caves that can be visited via boats: the marine life and crystal-clear water underneath the caves make them a perfect hotspot for snorkeling and scuba diving.

The city of Gallipoli, Greek for Beautiful City, is a pearl in the blue waters of the Ionian Sea. The port has established it as a maritime town for centuries and it still has an active fishing trade. It was a trade port with ties to Orient, as seen in some of the decorations and touches around town. The elegant old center hints at its once important past. The beaches are known throughout Italy as some of the cleanest around, with colorful rows of umbrellas and bright seafront bars and restaurants decorating them in the summer.

Masseria Salentina is 80 km from Brindisi Airport (also known as Salento Airport) and 200 km from the Bari Karol Wojtyla International Airport. Otranto is 12 km, Lecce is 30 km, Leverano is 39 km, Tricase Porto Beach is 33 km, Torre Chianca is 46 km, Porto Cesareo is 53 km, Gallipoli is 54 km, Torre Mozza Beach is 51 km, Santa Maria di Leuca is 51 km.

The Property

Surrounded by secular olive trees, Masseria Salentina is a charming 300-square meter villa located in one of the most evocative corners in Southern Italy. Offering rustic yet chic interiors, the villa was constructed in the late 19th century as a country residence for a local aristocratic family.

The large pool has easy access with steps and a beach area, making it ideal for poolside cocktails in the evening.
