Having undergone four years of extensive renovation, the family-owned Masseria Petrarolo on Puglia’s idyllic Adriatic coast, showcases a breath-taking blend of contemporary style and rustic luxury. Originally constructed to offer protection from Barbary raiding pirates, this former 17th century fortified farmhouse has been meticulously restored by a team of architects, designers and local craftsmen including renowned design studio Alexander Waterworth Interiors, whose previous high-profile projects include Annabel’s and High Road House in London.

Showcasing wonderful attention to detail, the Masseria’s high vaulted ceilings and textured walls provide the perfect backdrop for the rustic-luxe décor. Spread over two floors, each of the eight bedrooms enjoys a unique feel, some with open fireplaces, others with roll-top baths, French doors and stone floors. 

Equally attractive, the Masseria’s living spaces feature a blend of antiques, many sourced from Italy, bespoke modern pieces and talking points such as the 25 foot long table in the dining room. Sourced from trips throughout Italy and Istanbul, many artefacts reflect the Masseria’s unique Moorish and Turkish-influenced architecture.

Set on a 75 acre estate only a few miles from the Adriatic coast, Masseria Petrarolo is a stunning 17th century farmhouse converted into an exquisite modern retreat. Sleeping up to 16, the Masseria has eight en-suite bedrooms (including one with an outdoor bathtub), three kitchens, a hammam, children’s play area, drawing room and dining room. Outside, the property is surrounded by picturesque olive and almond groves, and is home to a restored Airstream caravan, small chapel and herb garden. The Masseria is staffed and a private chef is available on request.

Masseria Petrarolo sleeps up to 16 people and costs from €11,500 per week.  A trip worth planning with some close family and friends so you can split the cost:-). Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

It is brimming with wildlife and profuse landscapes and remains a charming location for a private residence I appreciate referrals

  8. The cost of these hotels seems to remain rather temperate. The first place in this rating was occupied by Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. holiday resorts in italy

  9. It's not unusual for a real estate project in Budapest to be center stage not only on the European market, but in comparison to the world stage as well. Real estate budapest
