Masseria il Papavero, Puglia, Italy

Charming 4  bedroom pool villa set in beautiful peaceful location, close to local villages and beaches 

7 nights exclusive villa rental from £2,200. Flights and car hire available at an additional charge. 

With contemporary décor, pale stone walls, marble floors and gorgeous vaulted ceilings, this lovely house is quietly secluded in private rural acres, and exudes an air of cool, calm relaxation. A cloistered courtyard at the front of the villa has an almost Moorish feel, with gentle lighting for balmy evenings, highlighting the Masseria’s graceful architecture. A larger courtyard, to the rear, is home to an unusually large swimming pool, with parasol shade for a poolside seating area, and a shaded pergola for al fresco dining. French doors lead in from here to the living area, where an airy sitting room, all in creamy white, is open-plan to the dining kitchen, its sleek styling softened by country fabrics. Surrounding the villa, its own olive groves are perfect for a stroll through the gnarled and ancient trees.
