A Masterpiece of Arches

A grove of 200-year-old olive trees gathers around the entrance of Masseria il Trullino. The lifeblood of Mediterranean land, these plants have seen many bountiful harvests of golden, extra virgin oil. Within these sun-drenched five acres, you’ll find a serene hideaway with a masseria, where vacations with family and friends turn into stories told for lifetimes.

Built from scratch a few years ago, the home’s structure adheres to the style of “Pietra Leccese”, the local stone, applied with traditional techniques by local artisans. Signatures of the regional architecture, grand arches and four metre-high vaulted ceilings add an elegant touch to traditional Puglian rusticity.

In July 2020, Apulian Architect Raffaele Centonze extended and completely restyled the country house, which consists of a main building and a separate guest unit.

The pull of the outdoors is strong here, with extensive grounds, an infinity pool, and a roof terrace with views that land over the olive groves and white-stone villages. On a very clear day, you may even spot the Adriatic sea and Albania in the distance.

Benvenuti in paradiso.

Description

This villa in Puglia has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and sleeps up to ten people.



In the main villa, an open-plan modern kitchen welcomes you, fully-equipped with appliances and utensils. An old oak table off the kitchen can sit up to 10 guests when fully extended, and it faces an impressive tufo fireplace. Unwind in the living area, outfitted with a TV, or gaze out the giant arched windows where nature envelops you. Better yet, step out into it: the kitchen and dining area both have access to the internal courtyard, and the manicured lawn and olive grove. The kitchen also leads to a utility/storage room equipped with washing machine and additional mini-fridge, and a guest toilet with a shower.



In the sleeping quarters, you’ll find a master bedroom with a four-poster king-size bed, closet, cabinet, desk, and an en-suite bathroom with a shower. This room has a TV. The twin/double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom (shower), while two interconnecting twin/double bedrooms share a spacious family bathroom with a tub and separate rain shower, sink, and toilet. The bedroom overlooking the swimming pool has a TV/DVD player.



A second independent unit, with built-in stone following the traditional shape of a “pajara” (trullo with flat roof), is just 30 metres from the main building, between the kitchen/living area and the lawn. The twin/double bedrooms en-suite (shower) and TV are ideal for teenagers, a nanny, or visiting guests. All windows are installed with mosquito nets, and each of the five bedrooms, living room and corridor, are equipped with air-conditioning.

AROUND



Situated in the Salento countryside, Masseria il Trullino is close to the Mediterranean sea and the capital city of Lecce, also known as the ‘Florence of the South’ for its baroque architecture. It is 800 metres from the town centre of Carpignano Salentino, in the heart of the Salentinian Greece. Groceries can be procured in the village, or in Martano or Maglie (1km and 16km away, respectively). On Tuesdays, there is a market between 8am and 1pm in Martano, which is fantastic for olives, fresh fruit, salame, mozzarella and fish. Also in Martano, Caffe‘ Marconi and Bar Stella have the best coffee, pastries, ice cream, and cakes.



For beaches, the owners recommend Sant’Andrea, Torre Dell’Orso, Baia degli Angeli, Marina di Pescoluse (also known as ‘Le Maldive’), Torre Vado, Porto Badisco, and Punta Prosciutto. All are free and most have been awarded with one or even two Blue Flags. At Bagni, another favorite, you can rent chairs and an umbrella. Recommended for families, the Alimini area offers white sandy beaches and shallow water.



Sightseeing around the Masseria is plentiful. A short drive away is Otranto, a popular destination for Italy’s jet set. Check out the Duomo, dating back to the 11th century, with some internal columns allegedly from a temple dedicated to Minerva and restored to its original form and the Castello Aragonese, which has cylindrical towers and a moat.



In Lecce, you’ll always find the theater of life; a market, street performance, or just the evening passeggiata. Stunning architecture abounds; like the half-buried Roman amphitheatre near piazza Sant’Oronzo or the Chiesa di Santa Croce with its richly decorated façade and rose window. Check out the Duomo here too, with its 210-foot bell tower. Along via Palmieri, you’ll see craftsmen working on the local stone, and the Lecce Botanical Garden, flowering over 5 acres, can while away a fragrant and calming afternoon.



Also recommended is a visit to Matera in Basilicata, the region that provides a lot of what the country consumes, especially the grain for Italy’s pasta, and the fish, caught off the Pugliese coasts. Inland lamb is also popularly eaten here.



Puglia is known for its orecchiette pasta (literally ‘little ears’). Try it the traditional way: with a delicious and straightforward fresh tomato and olive oil sauce, and check out the many local markets for a cornucopia of locally-grown vegetables. For oenophiles, try the internationally acclaimed Salice Salentino, a deep red from the Negroamaro grape and the Primitivo di Manduria, made with the Primitivo grape – thought to be genetically related to Californian Zinfandel.



Visit Tenuta Sant’Emiliano near Porto Badisco for fresh cheese, and head to Norcinera, an unmissable artisan butcher experience. The owners love the secretive bakery Il Forno, marked only by a wood oven and baker painting, for its fresh Apulian bread.



Wellness lovers should check out the Spa in Santa Cesarea Terme, and golfers will appreciate the fairways of Hotel Acaya Golf Club in Lecce.



Finally, take home some superior organic extra virgin olive oil and beauty products directly from the Masseria’s olive oil producer, ALEA.

  • The Brodys, November 20, 2020

    We spent a week at the Masseria (and would have liked to extend our stay to a month!). We had a long drive coming from northern Italy and were all tired when we arrived. The house and courtyard are so beautiful that we immediately felt relaxed and happy. We had activities planned for our first full day in Puglia, but could not get ourselves to leave this beautiful home!

    Our week flew by and we were able to visit part of Puglia (Alberobello, Lecce, Otranto, Grotta della Poesia, Santa Maria di Leuca, Porto Badisco for kayaking), but we will definitely have to go back, because it’s a wonderful region of the country and we have so much more to see.

    The house is very comfortable. We are a family of five and only needed three bedrooms, but two more are available. All bedrooms are air-conditioned, which made our sleep very pleasant (and the rooms are completely dark when the shutters are closed). The kitchen is very well-equipped and we had every breakfast at one of the two outdoor dining tables; there’s also an outdoor bbq (hibachi type). The pool is as inviting as the pictures show, we spent a lot of time in there! There’s a terrace on top of the house and we were treated to fireworks one evening (great timing on our part!). The olive grove is beautiful and we walked around the property every day.

    Paola was very helpful with everything, including restaurant recommendations (L’Altro Baffo in Otranto was excellent).

    We often rent houses and this house is certainly at the top of our list. We had a wonderful stay and can’t wait to go back!

    We had a wonderful time thank you. Your villa was just perfect for our family and the pool was used a lot. We particularly appreciated the excellent cleaning done by Vanessa and the way Ludovica quickly solved our hot water problem.

    Our extended family of 7 adults and 3 children loved our stay in Masseria Il Trullino. It was perfect for our needs and we spent a great deal of time in the pool. Spotlessly clean and serviced three times during our stay, it made life very easy. A great location, making it easy to drive to various parts of southern Puglia with some lovely beaches nearby. I would definitely recommend this villa.

    We had a tremendous time at the Masseria. Fantastic weather and a lovely mix of home comforts and touches of luxury.
    Suffice to say both your attention to detail coupled with Ludovica and Daniel’s flexibility and assistance made for a great holiday.

    Many thanks and we’re hoping to head back soon!
