Luxury Masseria near Ceglie Messapica, nestled between the farms and olive groves of Ostuni. It sleeps 7 people and you can rent it throughout the year.
Beautifully refurbished 18th century villa set in unspoilt countryside in Puglia, Southern Italy, and now available for holiday rental throughout the year. Nestled between the charming baroque towns of Martina Franca and Ostuni, the masseria lies in the heart of a vibrant farming community who welcome visitors with warm Puglian hospitality.
Originally fortified farmhouses, masserias are found all over Puglia and many have been converted into vacation villas for hire. But La Cupina is far from your typical masseria. Because it was built as a gift from father to daughter, no effort was spared to fuse the farmhouse with character and originality.
Thanks to painstaking restoration work, Cupina is now fully modern but not at the expense of its idiosyncratic charms. These include the distinctive terra cotta red exterior uncovered when renovators chipped down to the original paintwork – a by-product of local ochre soils. Rough-hewn limestone floor tiles give Cupina a rugged authenticity throughout.
The two-storey building is larger than the standard masseria and originally the first floor was used to shelter livestock, while the second floor functioned as a family home. Amid modern conveniences, original torch holders and feeding troughs have been retained as part of the villa redesign – fixed reminders of the downstairs’ former rustic function. A spiral iron staircase leads to the first floor, which can also be reached via an external staircase.
