About Marco Cristofori
I'm builder and interior decorator. My city-home is Bologna but I like Puglia very much because is culture rich, hospitable and famous for the quality of its food. In the photo I'm with my daughter Diana who does not live with me.
Marco Cristofori purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Marco Cristofori chose Ostuni
In the serenity of a secular olive grove, our Masseria Zumpicchio has been built around 4 ancient “Trulli”, using the traditional materials of the zone and respecting the local style, but adding all the modern comforts. The living room with fireplace looks out onto the large Swimming Pool, surrounded by a stone terrace of 40 square meters, and there is an internal dining area and an external one, an open Veranda covered from the shed, offering therefore the possibility to have supper inside or in the coolness of the open space. The kitchen is well equipped (oven and dishwashers), there is an annexed laundry and a graceful bath with washbasin, wc and bidet. In the living room you have a modern television and in all the house you have WIFI, and the Masseria got 20.000 square meters of private land with olive and fruit trees, granting the most absolute privacy and tranquility. The main room with double bed, the “Canopy Room”, has been obtained restoring the biggest Trullo, and has its independent exit and en suite bathroom, wide and with a great angular shower that can be used also like bath tub. The second room with annexed bath is occupied by the owners. Within a short distance from the villa and on the terrace that surrounds the swimming pool, there is one independent construction, annexed to an existing old little trullo, the “Trullino Room”, hosting a pleasant room with a double bed with canopy and a bathroom complete of shower. The Villa is located in Itria Valley, 10 km from the town of Ostuni, just 40 minutes from Brindisi airport and 1 hour drive from Bari. The loca

A lovely house with a pool situated amongst olive trees. We were here for a week and although peaceful and quiet we were interrupted almost every day by the owner visiting for one reason or another, the pool cleaner and on two occassions delivery of water by a truck!! The house is lovely and cool and the kitchen is well equipped. There is seating for al fresco dining which we took full advantage of including cooking on the bbq. Would definitely recommend staying here.
Peaceful, cosy, very relaxing
Nicely decorated house. Beautiful Trulli country. We had a fabulous time. Marco is very helpful and always within reach.
Great place to relax and to visit Puglia
We were there with our two kids (1y and 2.5y) and we had a great stay at Marco's house.
Marco was very welcoming and helped us on the first evening with our dinner. He was always not very far to help during our stay. He had kindly bought all the equipment we needed for our kids. He sent us back by mail something we had forgotten.
House is beautifully furnished with antiques; this is so much nicer than what you would expect in rented houses.
The inside of the house (bedrooms, bathrooms, dining room and living room) is big, well decorated and very comfortable. Lots of light throughout the place which is great (and unexpected) for a truli. Only the kitchen could be a bit bigger with more equipment.
Pool area is very nice, surrounded by Olive trees, shaded and sunny at the same time. You may find the stone steps not ideal for young children but we had no issue.
Nice outside dining area.
Ultra quiet place. Perfect for relaxing.
It's perfectly in the middle of 3-4 very nice villages. And convenient location to visit Puglia.
A perfect place for a lovely secluded holiday
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at this villa. The trulli conversion is spacious, clean and well furnished and equipped, and surrounded by olive trees as far as the eye could see; a perfect place for a lovely secluded holiday. A car is essential but the villa is within easy driving distance (7-10 km) of four historic towns with shops and many good restaurants. There is a small supermarket a few kilometres away. The owner, Marco, is friendly and helpful and lives unobtrusively nearby. He gave us several gifts of produce to make us feel welcome.
Super vacances dans un lieu idyllique
Trés belle maison de charme dans les pouilles.
La maison est trés grande, trés agréable, tout confort avec climatisation, et au calme. Vraiment un lieu d'exception. Piscine d'enfer et jardin agréable avec des oliviers.
Parfait pour des excusions dans la région (Alberobello, Ostuni, Villa Franca, Monopoli) et pas trés loin de lecce ou bari (compter 1h15).
On a adoré !
Merci beaucoup à vôtre très belle et très aimable famille !
Ein wunderbarer Urlaub in schöner Armosphäre!
Molte grazie! È stato bello ospitare persone educate e gentili come voi!
