Contemporary and Luxurious Masseria, totally secluded - ideal for large groups

Overview

Property

Updated: 21-Nov-2016
5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, set in acres of olive groves, near beach

Description:

305 sq.m (3280 sq.ft.) masseria farmhouse

- 2.5 hectares of olive groves

- Swimming pool

- 5 double bedrooms

- 5 bathrooms

- Living area

- Kitchen with dining area

- Utility room

- Outside pergola for “al fresco dining”

- No smoking please

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.

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.

Location

From the Owner

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
