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.

- 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.
