Tenuta Masseriola

Its sophisticated design, stunning location, fabulous pool and natural colour palette make Tenuta Masseriola a truely class act

Tenuta Masseriola, although just a few kilometres from the foodie town of Carovigno, as well as the coast, enjoys a beautiful private spot, surrounded by eight hectares of olive groves and the rich, red soil and pretty stone walls typical of this part of Puglia.

There are three different buildings: an old trullo with a snail-shell external staircase, the original main house and a newer separate space which houses two of the four bedrooms. The architect, well known for his exemplary minimal designs, used traditional building techniques and materials to transform this former agricultural dwelling into a place of tranquil beauty.

Throughout the property, both inside and out, guests will be wowed by the beautiful soft light that is reflected in the warm stone that surrounds the pool, the simplicity of the interiors, and the polished concrete floors. A careful edit of designer furniture provides a seamless blend of old and new. There are two sitting rooms, a well-equipped kitchen and a dining room with a barrel-vaulted stone ceiling. A long table enables guests to live their best Italian life over dinners made from the abundance of fresh local produce.

The division of the bedrooms between the three buildings allows guests considerable privacy, while the living spaces both inside and out bring people together.

The pool is a gorgeous greeny-blue – the colour of the nearby sea as well as the various trees that surround it. This is a property that celebrates its beautiful surroundings with understated magnificence. You will be tempted to stay put but that would be to miss out on the riches that await beyond the gates, including the beautiful towns of the Itria Valley as well as the Torre Guaceto nature reserve.

Rooms description


There are four bright en-suite bedrooms, each with a door out to the garden. Perfect for friends and family who like a little added privacy, the bedrooms are spread across the three buildings with one in the main house, another in the trulli and two more in the newer separate space. Simply furnished in soft, natural colours, each room is spacious and restful. There are big, comfy beds made up with cool linens and smooth, polished concrete floors. The one in the trullo is within the cone of the building.


The bathrooms are simple and sleek with high-quality fixtures and fittings. They all have a shower, WC and bidet. The bathroom in the trullo occupies a traditional arched stone space.


The kitchen has a central island with a five-burner gas hob, a double sink and a breakfast bar at the end, all in a sleek slate colour which contrasts beautifully with the pale walls and the light stone. An elegant solution that seamlessly blends old with new and form with function, it’s superbly equipped - including a Nespresso machine - and connects to the indoor dining room.

Living rooms

The main living room has a polished concrete floor and is simply furnished with two designer armchairs and a glass side table next to the beautiful stone fireplace. A second sitting room has a comfortable sofa and two armchairs, as well as a TV. The main bedroom is off this room. The indoor dining table is conveniently close to the kitchen and comfortably seats ten under a traditional barrel-vaulted ceiling. Sliding doors open onto the terrace.

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.

  • To ensure the necessary information concerning social distancing and the use of masks is available to all guests

  • 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
