What we love
- Designed By A Famous Fashion Designer
- Surrounded By Well Groomed Gardens & Olive Groves
Immersed in a land of centuries-old olive trees, Masseria dell’Arte is an exclusive five-star boutique resort located in one of the most evocative corners in Southern Italy. The property preserves the atmosphere of a traditional Apulian house.
Built in the late 19th century, Masseria dell’Arte has been renovated to accommodate 22 guests in 9 double bedrooms and 2 communicating double bedrooms, plus 4 extra guests in 2 double sofa beds.
The construction of the villa dates back to the second half of the nineteenth century at the behest of a local noble family. Originally founded as a summer residence, the building became the headquarters of the local British garrison during the Second World War. Due to its strategic position, it was the perfect observation point. A few years ago, thanks to the intuition of an enlightened local entrepreneur, the property was entirely renovated while preserving its historical features.
Surrounded by a lush garden and typical dry-stone walls, this elegant villa features an exceptional saltwater swimming pool carved into the rock and a generous paved poolside area furnished with comfortable sun loungers inviting guests to sit back and unwind.
