Property description

This historic farm estate dates from the 1500s. The recently completed restoration preserved the villa's integrity and incorporated modern amenities and design elements, resulting in a harmonious blend of elegance & history.
The former stables is now a light-filled Great Room with: an open kitchen, unique teak dining table for 14, and living area with a large couch and comfortable chairs around the fireplace. Original stone and tiles are prominent throughout.
The courtyard is over ½ acre and enclosed by the original walls, outdoor dining 'room' for 14, outdoor living room with ample couches, ancient wood oven, fig trees, a vegetable garden, and a 25 meter pool.
The villa is situated on 15 acres of cultivated farmland and situated in a sea of olive groves. Just 5 minutes from the town of Mesagne, with a charming historic center, and a medieval castle, restaurants and shopping. The closest beach is 25 minutes away.
#4 of “The 20 Best Mediterranean Villas with Big Pools” The Times (London)


PRESS

“Turning off the main road, Villa Pizzorusso, my six-bedroom home for the week, appeared in a flash of pink nestled between fields, vineyards and olive groves. Lovingly restored over three-years by its Italian-American owners, the Villa now features tasteful modern touches and flawless furnishings, which blend seamlessly into the Moorish and neo-classic design.' Indigare.com

'A loving restora­tion–re­generation has trans­formed this eigh­teenth-century proper­ty into a tasteful and secure base, which retains the feel­ing of a country home with the comfort and style of a five-star hotel. For a large family travelling, a corporate group looking for a retreat, or those seeking a truly exclusive experience, this is the place.” Lucire Magazine

“Want to do some real swimming? We find the best pools in the Mediterranean… #4 Villa Pizzorusso, Puglia, Italy... It’s completely private in the vast courtyard of this stunning pink masseria (fortified farmhouse) near Mesagne, so you can plough up and down the 25m pool in the buff if you want to. The house has stone floors, vaulted ceilings and a shower in a turret, as well as wi-fi and air conditioning. There’s a large covered outside terrace for eating.” The TImes, London

STYLISH PLACES TO STAY IN PUGLIA 'Check into a masseria, or fortified farmhouse, many of which have been renovated recently. Villa Pizzorusso is among the best, with a 25m pool in a vast courtyard garden and a Moorish-style pink exterior, in a secluded spot five minutes from Mesagne. Visit in the summer and you’ll spend much of your time in the courtyard with its large shaded terrace. Within, the old stables have been converted into a huge living area, where a minimalist feel prevails, despite the teak dining table that seats 14 and comfy chairs round the fireplace. Some bedrooms have frescoed ceilings or intricate tile work, while others have stone floors and high, vaulted ceilings.” The Times, London

Villa Pizzorusso is located on the ancient Appian Way, which connected Rome to Brindisi.

It is set amidst olive groves on 15 acres of cultivated farmland, five minutes from the towns of Mesagne (population 30,000) and Latiano (20,000). Both towns have wine and olive oil coops, grocery stores, butchers, bakeries, cheese shops (mozzarella and ricotta made on the premises daily), local fruit and vegetable vendors, open air markets, cafes, restaurants and all amenities. Mesagne has a medieval castle, a fine archeological museum and a charming historic center.

Among the many choices of beaches, these are two great ones: Torre Guaceto — a beautiful protected marine reserve on the Adriatic Ocean with white sand beaches, a snack bar, and chaise lounges for rent (25 minutes drive); and Campomarino — a local treasure on the Ionian Sea with sand dunes and limpid, crystalline water for swimming. (45 minute drive)

The ceramics center of Puglia is located in Grottaglie, which is 20 minutes away.

Muro Tenente, an archelogical site, is within 5 minutes of the villa. The ruins there are from the Messapian era which pre-dates the Greek and Roman occupations of the region.

Alberobello (55 minutes away) — which has the greatest concentration of “trulli”, the conical shaped homes and structures that are indigenous to Puglia; Martina Franca (50 minutes away) — site of the premiere summer classical music festival in the south, the Festival della Valle d’Itria; Castellana Grotte (60 minutes) — perhaps Europe’s most dramatic underground caves; and Otranto (70 minutes) — the cathedral at this picturesque seaside city has one of the oldest and most unusual mosaic floors in Italy, as well as the eerie shrine of the skulls of 600 martyrs who were decapitated here by invading Turks.
