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.

About the Property

Inside: Masseria Curti Vecchi comprises a series of imposing, thick stone buildings arranged around a central walled courtyard. The main entrance leads on one side to a reception room, a stylish living room, a dining room and one of the best-equipped kitchens in our portfolio. This latter leads out onto a covered terrace with dining table and barbecue overlooking the lawned courtyard. To the other side of the entrance is a large double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower and tub. The other three bedrooms, each with a beautiful en-suite bathroom with large shower, are situated a few steps away on the opposite side of the courtyard, where you will also find the wine cellar and its spectacular 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.
