Property description

Immersed in the green of the countryside, and within easy reach of stunning beaches, this beautiful historic masseria sleeping 8 with large swimming pool offers the discerning guest the opportunity to enjoy the relaxed Puglian lifestyle.

The spacious property is situated at the end of a long drive in over five acres of grounds with extensive areas of olive and almond trees. It offers total seclusion whilst the vibrant Puglian town of Ceglie Messapica, famed for its restaurant scene is still easily accessible.

This ancient house, constructed entirely of stone, was initially the Chapel of San Michele and was built in 1300 but over the following centuries was transformed into a nobleman's residence.

The house is comfortably furnished with a stylish mix of antique, vintage and modern furniture and offers spacious living areas and modern facilities. Outside are terraces, a covered area for al fresco dining and a large original stone piazalle, or patio. There is a barbecue and wood fired pizza oven.

Location

Van San Michele is situated in Ceglie Messapica; a charming small town of white washed houses and narrow streets located in the province of Brindisi, on the edge of the Valle Itria, famous for its Trullis, which are stone built conical buildings, typical of this area of southern Italy.

The landscape is typical of the area, particularly rich in nature and history. Dotted around the surrounding land you will see countless Trulli, as well as ancient farms called Masseria, home to dry-stone walls, olive groves, vineyards, and woods with ancient oaks.

The town of 'Caelia' is close by and also rich in history and culture - tracing its origin back 15 centuries before Christ and originally part of Magna Grecia (Greater Greece).

Puglia is considered one of the best places to eat in Italy by the Italians, and Ceglie Messapica is considered one of the best places to eat in Puglia! There are many restaurants in Ceglie from simple trattoria to Michelin starred affairs. Many of them will offer some version of what is known as 'Cucina Povera', literally 'poor cooking' derived from a time when the residents of this area of Italy had to make do with simple ingredients and transform them into something more than the sum of its parts.

Less than half an hour brings you to the beaches of the Adriatic coast, where there are many quiet coves with crystal clear water as well as longer sandy beaches backed by dunes. A little over half and hour on the other side of the peninsula are the stunning beaches of the Ionian coast where mile upon mile of white sandy beaches extend south to the tip of the heel of Italy.

The airports of Brindisi and Bari, both with direct flights from the United Kingdom are 30 minutes and 1 hour ten minutes respectively from the property.

 

Manager info

About: Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne.

Today we deliver a wide range of luxury villas, private chateau and charming farmhouses throughout France, Italy, Spain, the UK and the Caribbean. We have something for everyone from charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateau, all handpicked and chosen with care.
