Ancient, renovated Masseria (fortified countryside mansion) with a swimming pool, not far from the sea, 2 km (San Gregorio- S.M. di Leuca,), immersed in 4000 sq.mt. property with olive groves and Mediterranean vegetation and is constituted by a main house (old restored farmhouse) and an annex (new house) placed just 30 mt from the main house. The setting gives a peculiar rural atmosphere, enriched by few but accurately selected pieces of furniture, which render the interiors charming, comfortable yet simple. The restoration works were oriented to preserve and enhance at best the original architectonic characteristics, such as the star-vaulted and barrel-vaulted ceilings, so dictating the use of the space; indeed, one of the two bedrooms has been kept smaller (around 10 sq.mt.) for this reason. The property is fenced by original drystone walls (around 80 cm high) and has no gate at the entrance.
LAYOUT: Main house - vast and bright living room, which leads to all the bedrooms, furnished with sofas and armchairs; it extends in one single open space into the kitchen&dining area, where there is a table for 6 (stone-made kitchen, equipped with dishwasher, fridge with a freezer compartment, microwave with electric oven function); 2 double bedrooms, one bigger with fireplace; 1 bathroom with shower and access from the living room; outside shower with hot water, a large courtyard with sea view, adjacent to the kitchen; furnished pergola with sea-view.
The annex instead consists of 2 bedrooms, one double and one twin with a shared bathroom / shower, served by a small hallway which also acts as an entrance to the bedrooms. The double bedroom also has an additional independent access from the large window that characterizes it. Outside, in addition to the large and beautiful courtyard with sea view, delimited by high dry stone walls, there is a pergola with a sea view overlooking the countryside, equipped with a dining table for 10 seats and finally, detached from the hoses, there is the swimming pool area with a small solarium area and pergola.
