Villa Masseria Beneficio

Puglia, Italy
Sleeps 18 / 6 bedrooms / 7 bathrooms
Located in the heart of Valle d'Itria, a stone's throw from the white beaches of Salento and Ceglie Messapica, center of local gastronomic culture, Masseria Beneficio is an elegant dwelling suitable for groups of 8 up to 18 people, embracing the desire for luxury and well-being, with the cult of simplicity and tradition.

Historically used for the production and collection of olives and the care of domestic animals, the ancient masseria and the trulli of the late 700, expertly restored, is now a refined Villa, which combines the past with the present.

The centuries-old park of the olive trees, the surrounding orchard, and the Mediterranean scrub are just the frame of a timeless dwelling: the Masseria Beneficio, in fact, is designed to give its guests an experience of wellbeing and serenity that will make their stay unique.

OVERVIEW
The Masseria stands in a land of almost 26 hectares of lush Mediterranean vegetation.

It has a large equipped kitchen, indoor and outdoor dining rooms, a living area and an outdoor patio, perfect for hosting rich breakfast and dinner with friends. The portico overlooks the elegant swimming pool, built in respect of the landscape, which is for private use of guests, and the solarium area complete with sunbeds, umbrellas and sofas.

THE ROOMS

Every detail of the Trullo Suite and the other rooms of the Masseria Beneficio has been designed to delight our guests in all possible ways. The neutral and relaxing colors of the cotton percale and furnishings, recall that of the ancient stones of the vaulted or barrel ceilings, typical of the architectural tradition of Puglia. The solid wood furniture instead, recall the simplicity of country life and the surrounding nature, which is remembered in the photographs in all the rooms of the ancient trees of our olive grove.

The 6 rooms are also equipped with private bathroom, a small sitting area, a sofa bed, smart TV, free WI-FI, air conditioning, heating, safe and minibar.

The Trullo Suite, or the master bedroom, is housed in an ancient trullo with three cones. The double bed is at the center of a suggestive alcove and besides having all the comforts of the other rooms, it also has an independent entrance overlooking the elegant swimming pool, a living area with a fireplace wall and a private bathroom with whirlpool tub, made of powder of marble.

Four of them are located in the central plexus, while the two Trullo Suites and Quercia Suites are located a few meters from the pool, ensuring privacy and intimacy.
