Falsopepe


Falsopepe is a property that bathes its guests in sunshine and authentic Puglian hospitality, celebrating the food, architecture and glorious landscape of its exquisite setting.


A stay at Falsopepe is time spent embracing the rich, simple pleasures of southern Italy, namely food, people, a cinematic landscape and the unforgettable light.

Within easy reach of both the Ionian and Adriatic coasts and close to the pretty towns and villages of the Itria Valley, this classical masseria offers guests timeless, elegant simplicity and an uncompromising authenticity.

The beautiful proportions of the arched rooms and the subtle combination of white walls, elegant stone and shades of green create a calm space that encourages guests to melt into its charm. The furniture is a mix of traditional rustic and mid-century classic with soft citrus colours reflecting the surrounding landscape. The floor tiles alone are expansive works of original art.

Guests can cook for themselves in the well-equipped kitchen using seasonal produce from the kitchen garden, but to fully immerse yourself in culinary joy, take part in a private class in the professional kitchen taught by the wonderful Anna. Or for those who want to completely switch off, we can organise a private chef.

There are plenty of places to relax both inside and out and while you could happily not move from the property’s grounds, it would be a shame to miss out on the rich offerings of the surrounding towns, villages and coastline. Falsopepe is a house that encapsulates the very essence of summer holidays and a carefree life.

Massafra, an ancient city with a 15th century castle and an authentic Puglian feel is ten minutes away and has a host of lovely restaurants as well as local shops.

Your villa and Covid-19


To prevent any possible spread of Covid-19 and to enable you to enjoy a safe and relaxing holiday, all our villas are cleaned to the highest standard possible, and according to the latest Italian health and safety regulations.

Perfect hygiene: to ensure an exceptional level of hygiene in all our villas, we’ve worked with our owners to create a Covid-19 villa management protocol. Based on recommendations from the World Health Organisation, and in compliance with current Italian national law, this protocol goes above and beyond our usual rigorous cleaning standards.

Prior to arrival, your villa will have been fully sanitised, including all surfaces, objects, kitchen items, curtains, sofas, throws, pillows, toys, and in and around the pool. You are welcome to ask for a detailed list of the entire cleaning procedure we do after each departure and before welcoming new guests to the property.

The owner of this house has complied with the following standards:

  • To ensure the necessary information concerning social distancing and the use of masks is available to all guests
  • To guarantee availability of and accessibility to hand hygiene systems with hydro-alcoholic solutions and soaps in all inside areas of, and pertaining to, the villa
  • To guarantee cleaning and disinfection of all areas according to national authority guidelines. Further information is available on request
  • For the swimming pool: to guarantee the efficacy of the water treatments, while respecting legal limits (the parameter for free active chlorine in the pool is between 1.0 – 1.5 mg/l; combined chlorine ≤ 0.40 mg/l; pH 6.5 – 7.5 or equivalent oxygen)
  • For air conditioning systems: to guarantee the air re-circulation function is switched off and, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, with the plant in off-mode, to clean the air filters of the heating/cooling plants that use heat pumps, fan coils and convectors, at the end of each stay
