Villa/Castle in Via San Donato, Taranto, Puglia, Italy - Peaceful And Green Location 5 Minutes Drive From The Sea.
This splendidly aristocratic villa was designed in the 17th century. Originally built as the fortified country residence of a local noble, it later became the headquarters of a large agricultural estate. “Pizzariello” or to give it its full name, “Masseria Fortificata di Pizzariello” is near the coast about six miles south of Taranto. This property is strategically placed for unforgettable excursions into the heart of Apulia: Grottaglie, famous for its ceramics, the baroque town of Martina Franca with its music festival and Ostuni and its fabulous Cathedral are just some of the fascinating places within less than an hour’s drive. Guests at “Pizzariello” will have all their needs tended to by the friendly but unobtrusive staff. There is an expert local cook and a maid. The main house is built around a spacious, square courtyard with the living area on the upper floor. There is also a comfortable annexe with a private pool recently restored.

To enter, you pass across a large courtyard enlivened by a charming white statue. Elegantly built stairs ascend to the upper floor of the house and to where “Pizzariello’s” front door opens onto its entrance hall. On the left, a spacious dining room is followed by the kitchen and a shaded terrace with superb views of the local countryside - a great ideal venue for al fresco dining. Beyond the dining room, there is a handy study and double bedroom with walk-in closet and a suite bathroom with tub. The bathroom has French windows that access the flat rooftop from which you can reach a small tower, quaintly known as the “meditation room”.

Guestbook comments from the owner
WOW is the best description of our week at Pizzariello. It was one of the most incredible villas that our group has ever stayed in. With Anna making us breakfast and then with the help of Antoinetta cleaning every day we felt like royalty. The owner's collection of dishes, ceramics, etc. was incredible. We really hated to leave paradise. One has to see this place to really appreciate its beauty!

We were all overwhelmed with the grandeur of Masseria Pizzariello! It was great. All the rooms in the main house were big and spacious, which meant that our group of 8 people had plenty of room to spread out and relax! The sitting room was large and airy and great for the older members of the group to enjoy some peace and quiet, whilst the younger ones really enjoyed the pool area and the games room. The bedrooms were beautifully furnished and the house had all the necessary items which made for a comfortable stay. It was good to have Anna on site in case we needed anything and she cooked us an amazing Italian meal one evening! Mostly though, it was a real treat to be able to come to such a wonderful house after spending the day at the beach. So much so, we didn't want to leave!! We will definitely visit again.

- Outside: Pizzariello is 5 minutes drive from the blue waters and white sandy beaches of the Ionian Sea along the Coast of Salento. The drive to the Coast is simple among a tiny country street, surrounded by ancient olive trees and vineyards and orange gardens and the drive itself is a pleasant experience, very much “Old Puglia”. Once you arrive on the coast, sandy beaches and rocks, with private clubs to which the owners of Pizzariello can provide admittance, or wild beaches and rocks with free access. Pizzariello has now the swimming pool located in the secret garden, surrounded by “muretti a secco”, orange trees with spectacular trunks like living sculptures.
