A sumptuous and ravishing yet luxurious and refined masseria.

Masseria Curti Vecchi has been beautifully, painstakingly restored to create a subtly luxurious ambience that combines the simple warmth of the original stone walls and the cosmopolitan elegance and exquisite taste of the owner. The effect of softly-spoken splendor continues outside, with fragrant gardens, centuries-old olive trees, shady lounging pergolas and an unassumingly cool pool.

Inside: Masseria Curti Vecchi comprises a series of beautifully refurbished stone houses arranged around a central walled courtyard. The main entrance takes one into the hallway, whose vaulted ceilings, immaculate masonry work and timeless antique furnishings set the tone for the rest of the house. To one side of the hallway, a doorway leads into the stylishly furnished living room with original fireplace and wide glazed doors accessing the internal courtyard. The living room leads in turn to the extremely convivial dining room, which is served seamlessly by one of the best-equipped and spacious kitchens in our portfolio. More glass doors take one out of the kitchen to a shady terrace with al fresco dining area and barbecue overlooking the lawned courtyard. To the other side of the entrance hall an opening leads into the romantic master suite, comprising a sitting area, a large bedrooms with double bed and a sumptuous en-suite bathroom with double sinks, designer tub and separate walk-in shower. The three other double bedrooms, one of which may also be made up as a twin, are accessed from the central courtyard. Each has its own luxurious en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower. (Please note these rooms do not communicate directly with the main house, nor with each other). Last, but not least, is the Ziggurat-esque wine cellar which is home to a superb selection of wines. Furnishings and fittings throughout are of the highest quality.

Outside: the courtyard is lawned, open and beautifully proportioned. The gentle colour of the masseria's stone walls contrasts with the vibrant green of the lawns and gardens and the bright blue of the sky above. A gate at the end of the courtyard leads out to a second lawned area which is home to the beautiful pool and a shaded pergola. Views spread out over the surrounding olive groves and the surrounding countryside.Some excellent Cannondale mountain bikes are available for clients wishing to explore the area and nearby coast.

Think About

One of our top Masserie in Puglia. Without a doubt.



Exploring the local Area

Masseria Curti Vecchi is set near the charming village of Specchia. The baroque centre of Specchia has been largely restored to a very high level, and has attracted a good selection of bars and restaurants serving high quality Puglian fare.

Masseria Curti Vecchi is also a few minutes' drive from the three charming villages of Taurisano, Miggiano and Ruffano, complete with a restored baroque centres and a selection of bars, restaurants and shops.

The nearest sandy beaches, some of the most beautiful anywhere in Italy, are near Ugento and Pescoluse on the Ionian coast, about half an hour's drive away. Also an easy drive away are the charming villages of Leuca, Tricase and Castro Marina. Lovers of culture will not want to miss a visit to the stunning baroque jewel of Lecce, the dramatic walled island of Gallipoli, or the defensive city of Otranto, all of which are within very comfortable "day-trip" distance.

Masseria Curti Vecchi



Rolf Mathies, Germany, 16 August 2014
"We enjoyed many nights sitting at the long stone table with our extended family of 9 eating freshly prepared meals. This is a very relaxing place, less touristy, less flashy, enclosed only by olive groves and little nice towns nearby where you can shop at the local fruttivendolo and enjoy an espresso."

Anon, UK, 2 August 2014
"We loved Masseria Curti Vecchi. All the bedrooms are beautifully planned, decorated and furnished. The swimming pool was amazing and the garden was beautifully laid out, with its different shaded areas and plants. Also the guardian and ladies who came in each day were friendly, charming and really helpful, as well as being wonderful cooks. We could not have stayed in a lovelier house or felt more comfortable and away from it all. We had a wonderful holiday."

Sue Yabsley, United Kingdom, 15 September 2012
"A truly lovely masseria with high quality fixtures and fittings. We loved it... A perfect villa to relax and enjoy the beautiful pool and surrounding areas... In-villa cooks were excellent, food was fab, and service was cheerful and efficient... A smooth booking and holiday - thank you all."
