Apulian farmhouse with pool – Nestling in the heart of Salento near the Baroque city of Lecce, amid extensive olive groves, orchards and palm trees, this superbly renovated stone farmhouse provides high quality accommodation with all modern comforts within a couple of minutes’ walk of a restaurant, a few minutes’ drive to the village of Lizzanello and only twenty minutes from the Adriatic coast.
Lovingly renovated in keeping with the traditional Puglia style, this elegant villa features splendid high vaulted ceilings and original terracotta floors, with thick stone walls which help keep the temperature cool throughout the summer months, and warm during winter. Each of the individually appointed bedrooms is tastefully decorated and furnished in a minimalist style, enhancing the original features of the property. The pergola and garden have been designed for outdoor living, with a blend of stylish furniture for dining al fresco, sunbathing or relaxing in good company, sipping a refreshing drink. What better setting in which to enjoy a glass of the local Primitivo wine surrounded by palm trees and the orchard providing a seasonal bounty for clients’ use!
A few hundred yards from this villa there is a good restaurant/pizzeria where you can taste authentic Apulian cuisine and local wines, whereas a three-minute drive away the charming village of Lizzanello offers all the amenities and charm of a typical Salento village, including a lovely weekly market in the main square. Some of the most beautiful beaches of Salento are within easy reach of Masseria dei Papaveri and would make perfect day trips. Try a different one every day and discover how varied this coastline is. The seascape is striking and can be best enjoyed driving along the scenic coastal route. Heading south, you shouldn't miss the Medieval, walled town of Otranto. The Aragonese castle and Romanesque cathedral proudly dominate the skyline of this ancient port town, today bustling with visitors strolling along its narrow, winding lanes lined with quaint craft shops and small pergola restaurants. Plenty for children in the area too, with the Curtipetrizzilandia Acqua Park, and the Zinzulusa caves waiting to be explored!
