The space

If you’re looking for a relaxing place surrounded by the olive trees of the Apulian red soil but still close to the thrilling life of the picturesque towns of Monopoli and Polignano a Mare, this is the place for you!!
The rooms are part of a typical masseria which tells stories of our ancestors. Indeed, this old structure dates back to the 18th century and was built by my family’s great-grandparents.
If you really need relax and rest, you can enjoy the masseria itself with its huge external area, the clear light of the blue sky, the view of the olive trees.
Polignano a Mare is a five-minute car ride and you will be able to enjoy the rocky coastline and the deep blue sea.
If you want white sandy beaches you will drive to the town of Monopoli in only 10 minutes.
In half an hour you will reach the lovely town of Ostuni, nicknamed “the white town” for its whitewashed houses and stunning view of the surrounding landscape.
Torre Guaceto Natural Reserve is only 40 minutes drive from the Masseria; Alberobello, the “trulli town”, only 30 minutes and the beautiful Castellana Caves only 15.
In 35 minutes you will reach the capital city of the region, Bari and in an hour the elegant and baroque city of Lecce, capital of Salento, down south the region.

Guest access

The room is suitable for couples, for people travelling on business, for aged people.
There is a multifunction room, a dining room and a kitchen at your disposal to be shared with the other guests.

Interaction with guests

You will always feel at home here and you can have a nice chat with me and my family anytime you want.
I used to travel a lot and lived in various European countries. When I decided to stop travelling and settled in my Apulia, I thought about travelling in a different way, that is to say by welcoming guests and getting them to feel at home.
I dream about turning my ancestors’ masseria in a place where people can turn their mobiles off and talk to each other, look for the beauty of nature all around, listen to music looking at the blue sky and read poems while smelling the flowers.

Staying at this beautiful family Masseria amongst olive, fig and pomegranate trees was definitely a highlight of our trip! What a beautiful place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Polignano a Mare. Maria and her brother recommended beautiful and secluded beaches near Monopoli for us to go swimming and picnic. They also provided great dinner reservations in town! Breakfast was included which we were unaware of and was a great surprise of croissants and espresso! Rooms were tasteful and clean and the internet was really fast!! We loved the laid back and relaxing atmosphere of this beautiful home and will definitely come back again! A car is a must!!! Thank you to Maria and her family for a beautiful stay. Kindest, Madeleine and Dan

My stay with Maria was lovely. The room is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Maria and her brother were very kind and hospitable, helping me find my way there and even offering to give me breakfast the following morning. The property is based a short drive of around 10 minutes from the centre of Polignano A Mare. Its surrounded by beautiful olive trees in a lovely rural area. You do however need a car to access the town.

Il soggiorno è stato piacevole e l'accoglienza ottima. Maria e suo fratello sono persone molto disponibili e simpatiche. L'alloggio si trova all'interno di una masseria nella campagna pugliese, in un'oasi di tranquillitá: un giardino con orto e uliveto e ambienti molto curati. La stanza è confortevole, pulita, arredata con gusto e spaziosa.

Ci siamo fermati nella camera "poesia di sabbia" per la prima notte del nostro viaggio in Puglia, questa, arredata con gusto e cura, molto accogliente, è situata nella Masseria di Maria, che gestisce insieme a suo fratello e all'aiuto di sua mamma. La rivisitazione in chiave moderna di questo splendido ambiente limitrofo al centro di Polignano a mare (un Borgo che allieterà sicuramente i vostri occhi per tanta bellezza) vi lascerà soddisfatti come lo siamo stati noi stessi!! Il connubio perfetto tra presente e passato dove la tradizione vuole essere rispettata e riscoperta!!! Auguriamo il meglio a queste tre splendide persone che con la loro infinita gentilezza e disponibilità, ci hanno accolti come in famiglia!! Grazie a Maria, Gennaro e alla loro splendida mamma!!!
