This exclusive Puglian farmhouse is just a few kilometres from the stunning ‘white city’ of Ostuni is a charming contemporary property in a beautiful rural setting. Tranquil and secluded, its magnificent outdoor spaces are thoughtfully designed to make the most of southern Italy’s enviable climate for an unforgettable holiday. Surrounded by acre upon acre of ancient olive groves and with the bright Mediterranean sun bouncing off its dazzling white limestone walls, Masseria San Vitese is a pristine sanctuary, a world away from Italy’s bustling cities.

Meticulously restored using the area’s local limestone yet with a sharper, more contemporary feel, it’s a jewel of a property for anyone looking to explore this lovely corner of Italy.
Surrounded by a white stone wall, the outside space is sheltered and private, with numerous seating and dining areas around the superb pool (heating available and paid in advance). Choose from rattan sofas under the shade of a parasol, a spell of sun worship on a stylish lounger, or perhaps stretch out on a day bed under the bamboo canopy of the central pergola.
When you’ve worked up an appetite splashing around in the pool, it’s hard to resist a home-made pizza baked in your own stone pizza oven and served under the specially designed dining gazebo. A splash of olive oil from a local farm and a bottle of full-bodied red from one of the many Puglia producers nearby and you’ll find that life tastes pretty good.
The house itself is a striking cube-style structure, softened by graceful arches and colourful shutters at the windows. With thick walls and a shaded loggia, the interior is designed to stay cool during the hot summer months, helped along nowadays, of course, with the villa’s modern air conditioning system.
Inside, the largely open plan ground floor living area is light, fresh and modern. A large, marble-topped island unit in the well-equipped kitchen houses the oven and hob and serves as extra workspace while an eight-seater dining suite offers a more formal alternative to the charming poolside pergola should you wish to eat indoors. A comfortable lounge with plush sofas and satellite TV means you can relax and watch a movie in the evenings should you wish.
The villa has four very handsome en suite bedrooms, each one simply and elegantly furnished with modern Scandinavian style furniture and high quality linens. The en suite shower rooms are beautifully appointed and fitted to the highest specification.
While three of the rooms are located on the ground floor, the master suite occupies the first floor, with three sets of patio doors leading out onto a wonderful private terrace. The view from here across the surrounding olive groves is spectacular, particularly viewed with an aperitif as the sun goes down. It’s also the perfect spot to admire the star-filled night sky, away from the lights of the towns and cities.
Exploring the region’s rural landscape with its iconic white stone trulli (conical houses), farms and olive groves is a joy and it’s only a short drive to one of its most famous hilltop towns, Ostuni. This labyrinth of quaint white painted houses with its shaded alleyways, brightly painted doors and window boxes overflowing with geraniums is one of the highlights of the area and has dozens of restaurants and cafés to choose from.
With the Adriatic Coast just a few kilometres from your Masseria, there are also some fabulous sandy beaches and exquisite coves to enjoy while the historic port city of Brindisi is well worth a visit.
