Masseria Stura is an extraordinary structure for relaxing holidays in the nature of Apulia. The villa with swimming pool is located inside an old farmhouse, now renovated and welcoming, equipped with all modern comforts.
With 8 hectares of woodland, a swimming pool with solarium and outdoor areas equipped for relaxation, Masseria Stura is a perfect paradise for holidays in the Valle d`Itria, just a few minutes from the Adriatic Sea and the beaches of Torre Guaceto.
The main building in the old convent and its annexe with exclusive pool, equipped with air conditioning, washing machine, kitchen, reading room, offers up to 11 beds, ideal for 8 adults plus children. Pets allowed.
Masseria Stura originates from the remains of what was already an ancient spiritual retreat for monks and nuns in the Brindisi area in the 1400s. Today the masseria is presented in all its welcoming splendour.
The renovation of the last few years, accurate and careful, has had the utmost respect for the materials and the housing characteristics, keeping intact the charm of the place with its quiet, silent and suggestive atmosphere, for nature and animal lovers.
Diving into the waters of the softly shaped swimming pool, sunbathing on the sunbeds of the solarium, resting or having fun in the equipped areas in the garden, taking long walks in the wood of 8 hectares belonging to the farm, will be unforgettable moments of an authentic holiday in Apulia.
