Masseria Terre Rosse – Exceptional! Sleeps 8 – Large Salt Baths!
Masseria Terre Rosse dates back to the 1800s, built at diverse times in the past with successive changes, taking its name from the colour of the local lands. The restoration phases were completed in 2014, respecting its architectural origins and using local traditional materials. The restoration works were completed tastefully with attention given to the finest details. The masseria has two distinct and autonomous units; each unit offering accommodation for four adults and/or children; sleeping a total of eight people comfortably.
A great deal of attention has been given to the environment in the development of Masseria Terre Rosse, with solar panels producing an ample amount of hot water and the photovoltaic system which produces electricity.
Grounds and Pool
Masseria Terre Rosse is centred on 6.5 hectares of land, populated with olive, fig & almond trees, typical Mediterranean flora; and a recently added fruit orchard.
Once you’ve arrived at the Masseria, you pass through the archway which connects the two Masseria units to a spacious piazza with 250° views of the surrounding landscape, the sea of olive trees and the distant Brindisi coastline. From the piazza, the two units share a bamboo covered pergola under which you could enjoy many a dining experience with friends and family. The pool is visible in the distance of the pergola, reached through a pathway through the ornamental plants and shrubbery, commonly found in the Mediterranean climate.
The piazza is also furnished with an antique oven for outside cooking purposes and a BBQ. The fruit orchard can supply you with fresh figs in the morning for breakfast and a number of other fruits direct from the fruit garden.
The swimming pool is in a position which enables its guests to enjoy the silence of the countryside in complete privacy. It is 17.5m long and 3.5m wide; perfect for the swimmer in you! To one side of the pool, there is a large sun area just one step below the water for those who prefer to lay in the coolness under the rays of the overhead sun. The swimming pool is treated with salt water for a more natural feeling on skin and hair.
