A restored 16th century farmhouse complete with a cluster of trulli and an ancient, frescoed chapel, family-run Masseria Cervarolo enjoys a rural setting in Valle d’Itria around 6km from Ostuni.
A careful and sympathetic restoration to preserve the original stone buildings has created a truly beautiful and unique masseria with a relaxed and welcoming, homely ambiance.
Charming and individual guest rooms and junior suites feature stylish country- style, and often recycled, furnishings and objects; some junior suites are located in a typical Apulian trulli.
The property’s cosy living room with honesty bar is perfect for reading and relaxing. A generous buffet breakfast is provided, and evening dining is a treat of regional specialities prepared with local or home-grown produce accompanied by a fine wine list.
Well-manicured lawns and native trees and plants typify the gardens where the extensive pool can be found and poolside bar is available in summer.
There are mountain bikes for exploring the area, cooking classes and wine tasting sessions at the hotel, olive oil tasting can be arranged locally, and staff are happy to help with tours of the region.
