More of a palace than a farmhouse, Masseria Capella is beautifully set at the heart of a 73 acre estate, not far from the coast of Puglia. With olive trees, lemon groves, orchards and a large organic vegetable garden, this lavishly appointed estate, which can sleep up to 12 people, will accommodate you magnificently and feed you too.
The local town of Ostuni is 35km from Brindisi airport and 90km from Bari airport and with various carriers flying to both cities, you should have no difficulty in gathering your large group to create some special memories together. The Adriatic coast is 8km away and with sandy beaches and pretty resorts you can chose to enjoy your own private idyll at the Masseria or the gastronomic and other pleasures of this spectacular region. Opportunities for sight-seeing abound in this area of great historical interest full of little white villages where different conquerors brought their own customs.
Although equipped with all the traditional features of the Puglian manor house, the tastefully renovated and redecorated Masseria Capella will offer you all the conveniences of modern living - from a pool so large, it recreates the feeling of swimming in the inky darkness of the ocean, you can swim up to the jacuzzi which seats 10 and is cleaned daily. Air conditioning ensures the rooms are kept at the required temperature and the TV room can screen your favourite films.
Many further bespoke services can be organised including, charmingly, the celebration of mass in the private chapel.
For the body beautiful, there is both a well-equipped gym and an opulent hammam. Fitness instructors and masseurs can also be appointed to supplement the services provided by the in-house team of 2 house keepers, a chef, a waiter and a house manager all of whom will be there to ensure that you have the most de-luxe holiday experience.
You will be charmed by daily life at the Masseria Capella. Breakfast is served in the garden and lunch is by the pool. At night, stay in and be spoiled with pizza cooked by the chef using the stone pizza oven as well as salads from the organic gardens to further increase your sense of health and well-being.
Hosting aperitifs on the west facing sunset terrace, will set you up for elegant evenings, whether in, or out of, the Masseria Capella.
A ground floor double bedroom, with ensuite bathroom, provides easy access from all the reception rooms and on the 1st floor, a further wonderful 5 double bedrooms are located, all of which are en suite. Stylish and international interior design, where East meets West, reflects the history of the local area where Byzantine influences sit harmoniously with more modern Italian trends.
With daily cleaning and all your culinary needs provided, let Masseria Capella become your playground - you and your large group will only have to work on using all the facilities of this beautiful environment to do it justice. Whether celebrating a special event, or gathering just to spend precious time together, this large and luxurious estate will allow everyone to enjoy the area at their own pace in these palatial surroundings.
