The property offers security, privacy and tranquillity. At the same time we don't have problems with our children playing music too loud as it is secluded.

It is a fabulous contemporary house but built in the traditional style of the Puglian messeria. It has a large living area, an outstanding kitchen with a utility room.

One of the five double bedrooms is a detached annexe on the other side of the pool. All the other bedrooms are individually accessed from the cloister type layout of the property making it ideal for large families and friends offering a degree of privacy.

Our management company has offices in nearby Martano and offers a concierge service and an emergency line 24/7 if needed and will provide the masseria with a 'welcome pack' for your convenience on arrival.

Chefs are available at your request whom you pay locally.

Air Conditioning is in all of the rooms throughout the masseria.

A large top quality new BBQ will be purchased for 2016.

About chris bugden

Hi, my name is Chris Bugden and I am married to Christine and we have 4 grown up children. Two of our sons are married with children.

I grew up in Hove West Sussex and was a chartered accountant for 35 years. We live a few miles north of Brighton in Albourne and have lived in the family home since 1988.

chris bugden purchased this farmhouse in 2015

Why chris bugden chose Lecce province

We spent numerous holidays in Italy and we love the food, the people and the country. The reasons for purchasing the property was as follows:

1) Each bedroom has it's own en-suite bathroom/shower

2) The property is set in 6 acres of olive groves and has it's own orange and lemon trees

3) It is 3 minutes from a historic town, 10 minutes from the marina of Otranto and beaches.

4) Good airport access with a choice of airlines from the U.K

What makes this farmhouse unique

Frassanito, Alumini, Bay of Turks beaches are 10 minutes by car where you will find some of the cleanest clearest waters in the Mediterranean with miles of white sand and the backdrop of lush pine forests.

It is 3 minutes from the village of Carpignano Salentino which has many amenities including a pharmacy ,bakers, butchers and local vegetables for sale.

It is 25 minutes from Lecce which is known as the Florence of the south.

It is very near a local hospital and Lecce has one of the largest top hospitals in Italy.

There are numerous restaurants within easy access which offer a variety of food including local cuisine, but if you wish to cook at home you can purchase local fresh food daily, including meat and fish.

Within a short driving distance from the masseria, there is lots of available nightlife plus during the summer months, many of the villages surrounding the masseria hold festivals.

A fabulous Masseria.

  • 5 of 5

Masseria la Palma is beautifully presented, with high quality furnishings and equipment throughout. The outdoor pool area is stunning, with a well designed shaded area under the vines to relax and eat under.

We were 2 families, a total of 9 people and all had a very relaxing week's holiday due to the remoteness of the property - not having to worry about kids making lots of noise!

Maria the concierge was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. We did feel there could be more local information available at the villa, we found it hard to find grocery shops etc. Maria recommended a beautiful quiet cove with restuarant (La Dolce Riva) and Agriturismo Tenuta Sant'Emiliano near Otranto was lovely for dinner on our last evening.
