The
Experience

The former home of sisters Arianna and Patrizia’s grandmother, this tufo-stone farmhouse has been converted into a retreat both relaxing and authentic. Wrapped in olive groves, it’s close to Salento’s dreamy beaches but away from the touristy bustle. Its stark, dignified exterior hints at its stripped back interior; cool, white rooms in the former ground-floor work spaces are sparse and simple, with tiled floors, plaster walls and high, vaulted ceilings. The minimal furnishings – some their grandmother’s – are traditional, giving rooms a peaceful rusticity: think embroidered bedcovers, wooden chests, baroque-framed mirrors. Bathrooms are simple yet stylish, some with slipper baths. Each room opens onto the patio where breakfast is served, a delicious assortment of Patrizia’s cakes and pastries. Patrizia lives upstairs and will rustle up aperitivos; dinner, too, if you ask. She speaks little English but is keen to share tips for exploring the region: hidden beaches, historic Otranto, Salento’s undiscovered villages. Evenings are for sitting in the simple, herb-scented garden beneath its fairylight-hung olive trees.

Reviews

After spending 3 wonderful days in this secluded masseria, we can say this accommodation was the highlight of our holiday in Puglia. A beautiful place so elegantly done up, mixing the old with the new without compromising its authenticity. Patrizia, with some help from her mum, kept us so happy with her variety of so many delicious dishes for our suppers, an array of earthy food, all from the Puglia region. Patrizia's sweet smile and her efficient manner contributed in no small way to making our stay enjoyable. So did her lovely breakfasts. Thank you Patrizia

What a wonderful, genuine and authentic experience we had with Patricia. The rooms are simple but lovely. The grounds are open and wonderful. The attention from Patricia was outstanding, who was both very nice, informative and patient, but also a smashing good cook! She gave us a cooking lesson and made the most wonderful dinner of the local cuisine. Wonderful place for children, too. We'll be coming back.
