masseria il papavero

7 nights villa rental from £1,545 masseria il papavero puglia

A beautifully designed and furnished 4 bedroom luxury villa set in its own olive grove, and just a 10 minute drive from sandy beaches.

Masseria il Papavero is encircled by its own ancient olive groves and is within walking distance (2km) of the shops and restaurant in Carpignano.  The seaside town of Otranto, with its sandy beaches, is 15km away.

With its contemporary styling, pale stone walls, marble floors and vaulted ceilings, this lovely house is quietly secluded with an air of cool, calm relaxation. A cloistered courtyard at the front of the property has an almost Moorish feel, with gentle lighting for balmy evenings, highlighting the Masseria’s graceful architecture. 

The 16m swimming pool sits in the large rear courtyard, with parasol shade for the poolside seating area, and a pergola furnished for al fresco dining. French doors lead in from here to the living area, where an airy sitting room, all in creamy white, is open-plan to the dining / kitchen area.

And, in a layout which provides handy extra privacy for two families, the bedrooms are accessed from the cloister, two in the central section, two in the side wing, and all air-conditioned, elegant and uncluttered.
