Masseria Farnara is a gorgeous family villa with pool, in the countryside, surrounded by 2 hectares of a lush olive grove. It is located just a few miles off Spongano, a typical little town in the inland of southern Salento, at a few-minute drive from the crystal-clear sea of Castro and of Tricase Porto.
If on one hand it is an example of ancient architecture typical of the Salento countryside, on the other hand the house itself is provided with all modern comforts. The interiors are sunny, comfortable and elegant, featuring various hand-picked objects of the local tradition, as well as upcycled pieces of furniture made of wood or other materials. Staying here is immersing oneself in the quiet of the quintessential salentine atmosphere, where the only sounds are brought by the wind through the foliage, and the chirping of birds and cicadas under the warm summer sun. An effortless balance between nature and comfort, this villa will make you feel amazingly vitalized.
The villa features 5 double bedrooms each with en-suite bathroom with shower and air conditioning, and one of which with an additional mezzanine single bed (for a total of 11 sleeping places); vast living room with star-vaulted ceilings and fireplace, around which there extends the living area, separated from the dining room through an archway finished with "pietra leccese" (typical construction stone giving a very "warm" effect); toilet and pantry with washing machine; kitchen with fireplace, fully equipped with electric oven, kettle, toaster, and dishwasher, and overlooking onto an outdoor furnished and shaded patio, where there is a 10-seat dining table and a sitting/relax corner, with built-in stone sofas. The Masseria has various top-floor terraces, accessible also from outside staircases. Last but not least, the swimming pool (10 m * 4 m) is surrounded by another shaded patio and relax area with outdoor shower (with hot water).
