Masseria La Grappola

The sensitive renovation of this ancient farmhouse blends original stone walls with clean, modern lines, creating a sophisticated and welcoming ambience, both inside and out.

Masseria La Grappola is a large property with an even bigger garden set amongst the rolling olive groves of northern Puglia, at the start of Italy’s heel. Close to the breathtaking beaches of the Adriatic coast and the trulli villages and charming towns of the Itria Valley, it’s a perfect holiday location.

A sympathetic recently completed renovation of an ancient farmhouse, the original stones sit beside modern, minimalist design to create a light, spacious and comfortable aesthetic. Exquisitely finished and furnished, the property has six en-suite bedrooms, arranged over two floors. The living space occupies the lower-ground floor and includes a large sitting area with a smart TV and an indoor dining table for 12 with double doors out to the garden. The open kitchen has a large island and is expertly equipped.

The vast garden has ancient olive trees dotting its lawn, a large pool surrounded by loungers, a poolside pergola with a dining table and a second covered dining table on a large terrace next to the house.

The spacious, harmonious design of this property and its proximity to the Adriatic coast make it a perfect base for exploring this unspoilt area of Italy with friends and family.

Masseria La Grappola is 7km from the Adriatic coast and its beautiful beaches. The town of Polignano a Mare is built on limestone cliffs and its famous viewpoint, the Balconata sul Mare, offers stunning sea views. Stroll through the cobbled streets and across the central piazza of the old town or head to coastal Monopoli (13km) with its Baroque castle and cathedral. Its old port is perfect for an evening stroll followed by a delicious dinner in one of the many restaurants. For a day trip, head to the Itria Valley and the famous trulli villages of Alberobello and Locorotondo. Martina Franca, Cisternino, Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica are all worth a visit for their restaurants, maze of small streets, and market stalls. Lecce, otherwise known as Florence of the South, is an hour and 15 minutes away by car. Cited as one of the most beautiful cities in southern Italy, its Baroque splendour more than compensates for the journey.

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.

  • 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
