A Super Sanctuary in Puglia

Located just a few minutes from the Adriatic sea and the whitewashed hilltop town of Ostuni, lies this wonderfully restored masseria (fortified farmhouse) that offers the peace and tranquility of the Pugliese countryside but with a world of exploration and activities just beyond its gates...

La Masseria is divided into two buildings with a large garden with welcoming swimming pool (12 meters x 6 meters) in the middle.  The main house has a lounge dining room, kitchen, outside covered patio for breakfast in the morning and relax area and four bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms (three inside the courtyard of the house and one on the first floor with large terrace).  In the main lounge, there is a television with SKY and a DVD player, stereo and a small collection of DVDs available for guests. There is also 24 hours internet connection via a ADSL LAN connection and a laptop wirelessly connected only in the lounge of the house. 

In the second building, there are four apartments including three with one bedroom/bathroom and one with two bedrooms and two bathrooms plus two more independent bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.  All apartments are equipped with cooking facilities and living rooms, and every apartment/room has air conditioning, heating, refrigerators, TV, DVD player and stereo.  Each accommodation has been comfortably and tastefully decorated by the owner who has collected furniture, antiques and rare objects from around the world.  

Your stay at La Masseria is made even more special by the assistance of its full-time staff which includes two housekeepers and night watchman.  Every morning a lovely breakfast is served under the main house veranda with the scent of jasmine and the silence of olive trees around you. In addition to daily cleaning and laundry service, the sheets will be changed twice a week and towels every two days. The night watchman  will be a guard who will offer guests could leave without the worry of closing the home (there are lots of doors and windows to think about!). A gardener comes once a week for maintenance of the garden and pool is also cleaned daily.  A cook can be included at an additional cost. All staff of La Masseria is always very attentive to the privacy customers.
