Two Villas Joined In A Medieval Square

An oasis of peace and refinement, this villa for rent in Puglia transports you back in time into a hidden and unexpected inner world just outside of the bustling main square in the medieval village of Muro Leccese. 

Dating back to the 16th century, the villa is part of a compound of two historic palazzi that were constructed by the Apulian aristocracy at the time, and inhabited for centuries by generations of the same families. Lying abandoned for years, the restorations have thoughtfully updated the villas with modern comforts and understated style and a rare, secluded garden and outdoor living space that includes a pool.

All of its graceful features have been preserved and restored, with each room revealing it’s regal past combined with a seamless integration of modern amenities and a stylish collection of contemporary and vintage furnishings, decor and fine art.

Occupying almost the entire length of a beautiful town square, the villa is an indelible part of the village’s history and offers the opportunity to immerse yourself into Salento’s traditions and local culture. 

Description

Set along a quaint square within the heart of Muro Leccese, this villa for rent in Puglia immerses you within the heart of village life, while ensconced within a private and peaceful refuge.

Comprised of two levels, the villa’s atmospheric history is well preserved, and designed with family life in mind.

The ground floor includes a grand, barrel-vaulted living room with a fireplace looking out to the pool and gardens, and there’s a separate studio and dining room and a vintage tiled kitchen that includes original wood fired ovens.

The master en suite bedroom is on the ground floor with five bright and airy bedrooms on the upper floor, two that share a lovely terrace and a library.

The gardens have lovely spots for al fresco dining while the swimming pool is located on the lower level along the living room.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, cable TV, stereo system, kitchen and bath essentials, laundry facilities, baby bed and high chair on request.

AROUND

With history dating back to the Greek Empire, the small town of Muro Leccese is strategically located for access to some of Puglia’s most beautiful and fascinating sights. The town is designed around quaint squares with beautiful Baroque architecture and a slow village vibe, and the villa is a short walk to some of the town’s best restaurants and shops.

The stunning Baroque city of Lecce, known as the Florence of the South, lies thirty  minutes to the north and the lovely UNESCO fortified port town of Otranto is just fifteen minutes east. 

Some of the region’s best beaches along the Adriatic including Le Cesine and Nature Reserve, Baia dei Turchi, Torre Del Orso Santa Andrea and Alimini as well as those of the Ionian coast like the small Santa Maria al Bagno village are within a short drive. 

An hour south are the luxurious seaside resorts of Leuca and Santa Cesarea Terme.

    The property is lovely, spacious, and charming. We were hampered because we spoke no Italian and Luigi the housekeeper spoke no English, but thankfully google translate saved the day. Luigi was super helpful and available. Priscilla the property manager responded promptly when we had issues that required an English speaker. We recommend to rent a car to be flexible as taxis are not always available.

    The house is magical in every sense, with a style complementing the renovated ancient structure and its secret garden. You cannot but enjoy yourself here. And then you are right in the town with cafes and excellent dining. There are lots of romantic areas in the house and the bedrooms are all beautiful suites. It is a place you will want to return to and live in. The hosts are wonderful and provide a lot of helpful information and suggestions and are available to assist in any way.

    This is an absolutely beautiful property. The property is vast and the detail meticulous. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner who was just as charming as the property itself. He sources all the fixtures, furniture and art work and he has a fine eye for detail. The local village is very friendly as were the staff who cared for the villa. We will definitely be staying here again . Just fabulous !

  • Roberto, July 12, 2015

    My wife and I spent two weeks in this beautiful and comfortable house. For four days eight friends joined us. We all enjoy the wonderful flow, the privacy of each room (beautiful suites), the marvel of the architecture, the comfort of the common areas and the kindness of the owner and care takers. Lovely located in a traditional clean and charming village, equidistant from Otranto coast or Gallipoli coast. Ideal for discovering Puglia. To be repeated and recommended!

    The house is beautiful, extremely unique, elegant, comfortable, very well equipped and fun. We stayed there in spring last year and it was marvelous.

    The children enjoyed the pool and we spend an extraordinary holiday. The owners were very kind and their hospitality incredibly warm. Great Masseria!

  • Cherif, July 20, 2014

    We rented the Masseria last summer to host our families and friends for our wedding in Puglia. We stayed two weeks in both houses and were amazed by their beauty and simple elegance. They’re perfectly designed and curated, have and have beautiful furniture throughout.

    The gardens are much bigger than you think and the overall feeling is one of living away from the world in a magical place surrounded by your friends where stress simply does not exist.

    The overall capacity is huge for about everything: rooms, kitchen, dining and common areas. We spent two weeks with at one point thirty people and never felt a lack of space.

    I can’t recommend the masseria nor Alessandro enough, our trip would not have been possible without his constant help and support in the months of planning it took us.

    I look forward to going back, for many, many years to come.
