Masseria Bellavista is an authentic fortified farmhouse typical of the Puglia region built in 1789 recently refurbished to provide modern comforts including a pool while maintaining the original details of this historic structure. Guests have access to the whole main building of the masseria plus outdoor spaces (swimming pool, BBQ, fruit and fruit gardens, olive groves and almond trees). The original barn and the church (it's not an authentic masseria when there's no church!) are private but available for viewing. It is ideal for a families with children or a group of friends looking for a comfortable, tranquil and secluded getaway while being minutes of from both Ostuni centre and the Adriatic sea.

It is ideal for a families with children or a group of friends looking for a comfortable, tranquil and secluded getaway while being minutes of from both Ostuni centre and the Adriatic sea. Unlike in a trullo, indoor space is plenty; upon entering, there's a cozy foyer and a few wide steps leading to the main living area with the typical high ceiling where there are 3 very spacious bedrooms fit for nobility, two with queen-size beds and one with twin beds. All decorated with taste and imbued with understated country-style luxury. Two more additional twin beds can be added for larger group. Two spacious and luxurious bathrooms with rain shower. Laundry machine. The kitchen is well-equipped with amenities such as stove, oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, plates and all utensils to prepare your own meal using Puglia's famously fresh local products. Large terrace with views of the olive groves and the blue Adriatic sea and the new pool. Do nothing and relax by the pool or lose yourself among the thousand year olds olive trees or go for day trips and visit the historical centre and the Blue Flag beaches of Ostuni which are minutes away. Owing to its location off a major road, you can easily do a day trip to the famous trulli of Alberobello and the Itria Valley, magnificent Lecce and the Salento region, UNESCO World Heritage sites of Matera and Castel del Monte, or enjoy a gastronomic outing in neighbouring towns such as Ceglie Messapica or Cisternino. The choice is yours. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: BR07401291000004208More

About the neighbourhood
Ostuni, famously known as the “White City” for its white-washed walls is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the region of Puglia, the “heel” of Italy, and is a perfect base to experience this only-in-the-know gem of Italy as it is located between two international airports (Bari and Brindisi) and two international passenger ferry ports with easy access from various points in Europe, and is also well-connected to the rest of Italy by excellent highways and train service. Ostuni is captivating and lively, especially in the evening during the 'passeggiata', the time of the day where it seems like everybody gathers to make a 'bella figura' and socializes with friends and family in Piazza Libertà (also known as Piazza Sant'Oronzo, the protector of the city) or in the winding steps...
Getting around
Since this is a rural property, a car is recommended to get around. The masseria is located very near the main road that connects Ostuni to the highway, so access to places like Alberobello (for the trulli), Lecce (baroque splendour) or Gallipoli is very easy. The closest beach is about 5km, so is possible to walk or bike there, but car is necessary to access the further out beaches. The train station is within walking distance.
