About the property

Coastal Country House with 180 Degree Sea Views and Large, Private, Heated Pool

Brand new, this stunningly stylish, architecturally designed, coastal country house sits in its own two acre idyll. Only 2 minutes from the Michelin starred restaurants of Carovigno and 10 minutes from the ‘white city’ Ostuni, yet with no immediate neighbours, this beautiful house offers total seclusion and serenity. Chic modern, designer, interiors and luxurious furnishings blend perfectly with a traditional Puglian Masseria stone country house structure, suspended hundreds of years in time. With every room opening up onto established, well groomed, gardens and olive groves, and, of course, an enormous, heated, entirely private, 10m x 4m swimming pool, this truly is the Puglia destination property for those for whom only the very best will do.

Nearby Golf Courses:

1) San Domenico Golf Course. Location: Savelletri di Fasano.

2) Acaya Golf Club. Location: Acaya, San Cataldo, Lecce.

This new course enjoys a wonderful unspoilt setting on the edge of the Cesine nature reserve and only 2km from the beach at San Cataldo. The clubhouse is a converted 17 th century farmhouse.

3) Riva dei Tessali Golf Resort. Location: Castellaneta.

The Mezzogiorno's original golf course, founded in 1968 near the small beach resort of Castellaneta, set in scented coastal pine forest that offers welcome shade and shelter from the prevailing wind. Par 72 5947m.

4) Metaponto Golf Club. Location: Metaponto.

Only ten minutes apart, Metaponto and Riva dei Tessali are jointly owned. Metaponto is a longer and more open course set in an orange plantation. Par 72 6284m

Beautiful property in serene location

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time, the property worked well for our two families and couldn't be faulted. Even in early April the pool was really warm and a lovely place to come back to after a day out in Puglia. Puglia itself was a real find for us, lots to do, great restaurants and friendly people. Specific highlights included our day trip to Lecce, Zoosafari which the kids loved and the caves at Grotte Castellana. The owner was really helpful throughout, including getting us reservations at local restaurants.

So Nice, We Went There Twice…..

  • 5 of 5

We have had not just one, but two, fantastic holidays at this beautiful property this year. The first was in the summer, with our children (who absolutely loved it!), and the second was when we managed to sneak down again, this time with friends, in late October, when the heated pool was a real bonus.

The photographs simply don’t do justice to the house’s stunning, and very private, grounds, landscaped pool area and delightful interiors. Nykola, one of the lovely owners, has even agreed to help me work some of her interior design magic on our own house in Harpenden!

As for the surrounding towns and villages, Ostuni is, of course magical, but it was actually Carovigno which sneaked our vote. With its frankly, for a town of this size, ridiculous number of wonderful bars and restaurants, incredibly well priced, and filled with as many locals as tourists, it really offers the kind of authentic, immersive Italian country experience, sadly no longer possible in Tuscany.

And, before you ask, yes we are booked in for 2016. This time with our parents as well as the children.
