Remodelled to the highest standard, Masseria Azzurra is a wonderfully spacious villa offering luxury holiday accommodation for up to nine guests.
The central open-plan cooking-dining-living space is full of light with doors opening out to the front and back gardens and the swimming pool beyond. Four bedrooms and three bathrooms lead off this central space, all with plenty of storage space for your holiday wardrobe.
The villa is simply and tastefully decorated throughout, there’s no compromise on space and luxury touches such as the walk-in showers and under-floor heating ensure that guests’ comfort is guaranteed. Satellite TV and a DVD player with a selection of films helps keep you up to date with the news and the children entertained. To connect to the internet there is wifi and 3G can be picked up.
There are four bedrooms – two doubles with ensuite bathrooms, a twin which can also be set as a double, and a children’s room with a bunkbed and single bed with truckle. There’s a third family bathroom and the laundry room (with washer and dryer) has another WC.
The open-plan living space has two very generous sofas and a desk for those who aren’t able to leave their work behind. A big dining table inside provides a table setting for everyone and the kitchen also has a breakfast bar for grabbing a snack or chatting to the evening’s designated chef.
Outside there are gardens front and back, a boules pitch (called ‘bocce’ in Italy) and table tennis provide great fun for adults and children alike. A bbq and outside dining means you can eat ‘al fresco’ and enjoy the sunshine or warm evening air.
The fabulous 20x10m swimming pool is gated so little ones can be safely separated from the water. It’s on three levels going down to 3m at its deepest. It has been beautifully created with the trees around it giving it the effect of a natural lake.
All in all Masseria Azzurra is a fantastic villa to rent in Puglia.
Masseria Azzurra is in the countryside just outside the pretty hilltop town of Cisternino in the Itria Valley. Martina Franca, Locorotondo and Ostuni are all within an easy drive and the coast can be reached in about 20 minutes.
What we love
We love the sense of light and space at Masseria Azzurra, even the en-suite bathrooms are huge! The roof terrace is wonderful for sun-downers and the long stone dining table is perfectly placed for lazy al fresco meals. Although the pool doesn’t have much sunbathing space around it, its size and design makes you feel as if you’re swimming in a lake, and it’s been cleverly levelled so that younger guests have shallow areas to play.
Masseria Azzurra’s price structure is based on a week’s self catering with weekly cleaning and linen included in the price.
