Beautiful Masseria with pool, just a few minutes away from some of the most renowned beaches of the Ionian coast. Masseria Cirase is located in the countryside on a little hillock overlooking the bay of Gallipoli. Renovated keeping the architectonic characteristics of the original building, while being contemporary in its décor, it consists of one main unit, built around the ancient XVI cent. tower (that in previous time was instead the residence of a community of Basilian monks); and of 4 annexes, which were probably used as storage in the past, now turned into 4 independent suites.
Outside there is a vast garden, encompassing the main body, the annexes and the pool. The property’s grounds also include an olive grove where there are also some typical stone quarries, and an ancient trullo still in good conditions.
