Property description

Masseria Il Trappeto is an 18th century beautifully restored olive mill with views of Ostuni and the sea. It is a large stone building of 5,500 square ft and comfortably accommodates 12 people with its huge terraces, pergola and 40 ft sitting room.

Warm in the winter due to the under floor heating and cool in the summer due to the thick walls and added air-conditioning, Il Trappeto is ideal for all seasons. We spend most of our time outside, taking lunch and dinner under the olive tree by the heated pool which is rare in Italy.

Il Trappeto is set in 200 acres of ancient olive groves. So, although you are 1 mile from the lovely town of Ostuni which is full of restaurants and shops, tranquility is thrust upon you.

The London Evening Standard said Il Trappeto is 'the perfect place to come with a gang of friends for a week.'

We are 5 minutes drive from the Ancient Town of Ostuni. We are 10 minutes drive from the beach. You can visit many historic towns and if you like seafood this is the best food in Italy. The wine and produce is superb and the restaurants are first class. The Puglians love sharing their enthusiasm for food and wine with you with personal service. This a historical and gastronomic holiday in a relaxed fun and interesting area of Italy. This is real Italy and you are unlikely to hear an English voice. Highly recommended.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: James and Josephine Pembroke have had a long love affair with Italy but Apulia has it all: a great climate, great people, great food and lots to see.

Why the Owner Chose Ostuni:
We have loved Italy all our lives and Puglia is the real Italy: great food, great people and lots to see. Il Trappeto is just five miles from Trulli country. The trulli are unique to this tiny area and are round houses with conical roofs. We found a derelict olive mill and lovingly restored it into a luxury villa.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Apart from the brilliant food, you can visit amazing towns like Alberobello, Lecce and Matera but also have a great game of golf and great cocktails in Ostuni's bars.
