Property Description

Masseria Acquadolce is located in the lush Salento countryside, surrounded by olive groves and ancient woods, in the province of Lecce. Once an historic tobacco factory, dating back to the end of the 19th century, it has recently undergone extensive restoration work by its owner, a well-known Italian architect.

The renovation has entirely restored the large spaces, whose layout is distributed over a single floor. It included a rebuild of the high vaults as well as the recovery of stables and work areas, transforming the masseria into a splendid summer residence. The estate is protected by the ancient walls and immersed in the lush garden of about 7 hectares.

The interior layout of the masseria is fascinating. The spacious living room, with its high vaulted ceiling, is virtually divided into various areas: armchairs, sofas and poufs are placed in front of the fireplace, others in front of the large television, while another area is dedicated to dining with a long table illuminated by a wonderful antique chandelier.

The lounge overlooks, via a series of glass doors, the large rectangular swimming pool and surrounding garden with with fig and olive trees, creating one single space in continuity between interiors and exteriors, shade and light, air and nature.

The large table under the jasmine pergola is placed right in front of the kitchen door, next to the barbecue, the ideal place for dinners and convivial moments. A staircase leads up to the terrace, with a bathroom and solarium boasting a fantastic panoramic view.

The particular structure of the farmhouse, a sort of horseshoe, creates spaces of great privacy.

Each of the thirteen double bedrooms has its own private bathroom, as well as being spacious and elegantly furnished, with wrought iron four-poster beds, built-in wardrobes and antiques.

Overlooking the entrance courtyard, adorned with tall palm trees, are the first five bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, which were created inside the old stables. Another walled courtyard with fig trees, fruit trees and aromatic plants is the private outdoor space of the three master bedrooms and can also be accessed from the kitchen.

The pool pavilion, which is about 20 metres from the main building, has been converted into a small flat, while the caretaker’s house is located in a courtyard separate from the rest of the property.

The possibility of expanding the surface area from 600 square metres to 1,000 square metres allows the property to be easily transformed into a luxury hotel for an international clientele seeking total privacy.

The unique horseshoe-like structure of the farmhouse allows for the creation of spaces enjoying great privacy.

The area is characterised by charming villages such as Ugento, Miggiano and Specchia and the property is equidistant from both the sandy beaches of the Ionian Sea and suggestive cliffs of the Adriatic Sea, at a 15 km distance. Both the towns of Leuca and Gallipoli can be reached within 20 minutes. Otranto is 35.ca minutes away, while the baroque city of Lecce is 45 minutes from the Masseria.
