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 single bedroom (suitable for a child whose parents are staying in the suite), a large bedroom with double bed, and a sumptuous en-suite bathroom with double sinks, designer tub and separate walk-in shower. A child staying in the single bedroom would share the bathroom of the suite. 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). The largest courtyard double may also host an extra single bed on request and for a small extra payment. 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

The master suite double bedroom is accessed via the single bedroom. The en-suite bathroom of the master suite, which would be used by anyone staying in the single, is accessed via the double bedroom, meaning that the occupant of the single bedroom would have to go through the double bedroom to get to the bathroom. For this reason we recommend that the single bedroom is only used by a child whose parents are staying in the suite.

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

Bryan St John, United Kingdom, 5 September 2015
"Masseria Curti Vecchi is probably the nicest villa I have ever seen. It was perfect. The pool was perfect. The staff of the Masseria were excellent and everything exceeded our expectations. Such an amazing holiday. We couldn't have asked for anything more.

Caroline Dunne, United Kingdom, 29 August 2015
"Masseria Curti Vecchi was in a lovely quiet area. The bikes were really appreciated and it was great being able to cycle to the local village."

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."
